It is their homeland and theyíve paid dearly for it. The fact that they could abandon their traditions and live a happier life is another matter, but since they choose to follow tradition and accept the consequences they have the right to do as it pleases them.

Anyway, the OP asked to know the reason for the hatred against Jews.
So, tell us why donít like Jewish people?
Well, duh, I already said that ... perhaps you missed the obvious.
It's not their homeland.
It's belonged to other people for thousands of years.
You know that the bible is a book of fiction, right.

It's not their land, after WWII the land was stolen from people who lived there for thousands of years.

Being smart and business savvy, and good at surviving will not make people hate you. People will only hate you if they feel threatened by you, or know you have done something to hurt them.

Throughout history the Jews have been blamed for undermining an indigenous population economically while benefiting from that. The indigenous population, in their own minds, lash out at those they think is hurting them.

In this day, the world economy especially in the 1st world is doing poorly, while the Jewish people in large part are still some of the wealthiest people around. So naturally, to some people, it will look like the jews may have pulled something fishy against everyone else for their own sake. It is just history repeating itself like it always has.

So the book is fiction, but Jews are quite real.
Now how did this happen?

Like poisoning the wells, spreading bubonic plague or sucking the blood of Christian infants for example)))

But this isn't muslim immigrants. In the Hungarian example, this was native people of a country that sided with Nazi Germany in the 1940s. Even some Europeans, and some Americans, who opposed Nazi Germany agreed with their hatred of Jews. This has been going on long before the nation of Israel was ever created and recognized by the United Nations. Israel is just an excuse for continuing hatred of Jews. I just don't understand the source of the hatred.
People who donít fear their fellow citizens have no desire to control them.

I suspect you are an Italian (ex Roman) American.

In 135, Hadrianís army defeated the Jewish armies and Jewish independence was lost.
Jerusalem was turned into a pagan city called Aelia Capitolina and the Jews were forbidden to live there, and Hadrian changed the countryís name from Judea to Syria Palestina.
As regards the Bible, you are right! The Greek part of it is pure fiction but the Hebrew part of it consists of the recording of a nationís traditions. Traditions stem from memories and memories are history.

It was their land, my friend, and they paid dearly for getting it back.
Fair is fair... but you are not being fair.

Here's the latest example, this time from the mouth of a Ukrainian politician.
Ukranian politician slams Mila Kunis with Anti-Semitic slur | Mail Online
Seems Nazi ideals haven't completely vanished. They just went underground and now that a rising anti-Jewish sentiment is growing, seems they're feeling free to show their true nature more openly again.

I suspect there are bigots in the world because these are people with low self-esteem and they need to denigrate others in order to feel better about themselves.

There is also the concept of "scapegoatism" ... to blame an innocent group for the evils or misfortunes of society.

Centuries of not having lived in an area does not give you rights to that area.
People migrate, move, whatever. Wars happen.
They were gone.
Others lived there and the current and centuries inhabited residents were forced to give up their land.

And the Israelis continue to steal Palestinian land.
