Well, more hate crimes in general are committed due to racism:

Quote:
58.9 percent of the victims were targeted because of the offenders’ bias against race/ethnicity/ancestry.
21.1 percent were victimized because of bias against religion.
So, it is pretty important to worry about, wouldn't you say?

If any nation made such a call, the whole world would be in an uproar but counties have been calling for the genocide of all Jews and it aint no big deal. There is no other people hated more than Israel, there is no other people to even compare with Israel, they are unique.

It's not like somebody is dreaming up Anti Semitism, we have thousands of years as a witness to the world hating Jews like no other people. Anti Semitism hasn't just vanished after thousands of years, it is ever increasing.

No country calls for the death of all Jews. Some call for the state of Israel in it's present form to go away. Which I partly agree with. To me, ethno-states are wrong. Many Jews in Israel agree with me on that too.

That must explain the use of "Yahud" in situations like this
https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/9...ncement-watch/
Swedish protesters call to 'slaughter the Jews' - Israel National News

Clearly, these protestors are taking a stand against Israel in its present form by invoking the memory of and calling for future massacres against Jews.

Obviously, all the Arab states are only concerned about a political entity, not about a religion
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antise...the_Arab_world
which is why anti-Israel sentiment started in 1948 and is limited to one small region of the world, and in its presentation, equally criticizes all the religions involved in the governance of Israel.

And this is, of course, why there is parallel and equivalent protest against other countries which have nationality laws, rights of return, or are at all theocratic. Note the protests in Times Square against the Islamic Republic of Iran in which the people shout "Death to Muslims" or the various international condemnations of all countries which have preferential treatment for people of a particular ethnic origin.


Yeah, this isn't about religion...

Are you calling for the destruction of ALL ethno-states then? (not just Israel)

Seems like the trend nowadays. There is a lot of youtube vids about Jews visiting Israel being wicked because they want to retain their culture and who they are as a race. Same thing going on in America, people sit around trying to discuss the difference in being a patriots and nationalism. It seems that it is wicked to have any pride in your country or race, but of course that depends upon what country, culture and people it is speaking of. The world can celebrate the culture and heritage and point out how beautiful one people can be, and then speak ill of another people who love their culture, heritage and nation. Double standards everywhere.

It listed a higher % of hate crimes on religious grounds against Jews than against Muslims. I would have thought, in America, that would be the other way around with all the hatred against Muslims, which got more prominent after 9/11, in a huge way.
