I know. However, I have my own suspicions.

BTW...no response from you to a right wing poster saying that Jews invite it. Exhibit one.

ďArabs (this thread is about events in the United States ) or so-called white supremacists? Thatís a joke, right?

Again, talk to me when youíre serious. Youíre just wasting my time.

The destruction of the second temple and their expulsion from those lands is viewed as a sign by certain groups that Jews are a cursed people doomed to walk the Earth for eternity, as a result of everything that transpired.

It doesnít help that thereís a book called Elders of the Protocols of Zion which has fuelled a ton of anti-Semitic sentiment due to all the conspiracies espoused in it. Many people, regrettably, actually believe in that stuff.

So they are caught between two extremes.

- Christian evangelists who apply the above mentioned logic
- Muslims who target them die to the controversy surrounding Israel and above logic
Meh...Jews give as good as they get in regard to Muslims. After all, they didnít gain control of Palestine because theyíre nice people.

This thread is about whatís happening HERE. Torchlight parades and synagogue shootings. That had nothing to do with Muslims.

Yes and thatís precisely what I addressed. Jews get targeted in the US for the same reasons they do in Europe. Thatís from the radical extremist Christians sects.

I donít respond to the vast majority of comments like this, because they are comments that are made to provoke a response. If I were to to respond, I would be doing exactly what the poster wanted me to do. And there are so many of them, that I would be spending most of my time on this board responding to these kinds of comments. And what would come of it? An intelligent exchange of ideas? I doubt it. My time is worth more to me than that.

Hmmmph. Yeah, ok.

You wouldíve responded if Iíd said something half as incendiary. But whatever.

You should take that as a compliment.

Yes- HERE


1. Democrat party platform booing an attempt to recognize the right of Israel to exist


2. Nation of Islam hatred of Jews


3. Jessie Jackson and national black leaders hating Jews


4. Two Muslim democrat congressmen expressing public contempt for Jews


5. The dems fail to censure the anti-Semitic congressmen (women)


6. Obama having members of the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House


7. Hostile foreign policy to Israel by Obama


8. Dem constituents being markedly anti-Israel and pro-Palestine


9. Hillary Clinton making multiple disparaging remarks about Jews

Why? I could of course see why youíd feel that way, but you telling me that instead is kind of an insult. Itís condescension at its finest.

But I can look past that since you never fail to answer any questions posed to you. At least you give that courtesy whether or not I agree with you.

Okay.
I did not say the media was causing it but rather that they're REPORTING it because tagging each other as anti-semetic has become a political sport in this country of late.
(Have you missed Fox tearing into certain democratic congress critters over their alleged "anti-semetic" remarks? If so, not sure how you can deny the "reporting" surge.)

Here is even a non-racial, non-political, non-religious example of the US media going into a feeding frenzy for ratings.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summer_of_the_Shark

Heck, I even showed the data. It's been going on in the US for a long time and it hasn't suddenly gotten worse. It's about the same as it has been...but when have facts ever stopped a good political smear job?

Oh and yes, Europe has long been anti-semetic. Hell, as recently as WW2 the Brits even considered white Canadians as "2nd raters". Anyone looking at Europe over the last 100 years or so and thinking they don't have their own racist warts and religious fanatics like the US has a screw loose.

Not sure what I was being magnanimous about. I think I made my points and backed them up on facts and didn't take any political side. If you disagree and want to logically point out where I should reconsider, I'm all ears.
