The Reason For Anti-Semitism
AntiSemitism The Longest Hatred

“Who has made us Jews different from all other people?

Who has allowed us to suffer so terribly up until now? It is G-d who has made us as we are, but it will be God, too, who will raise us up again. Who knows it might even be our religion from which the world and all peoples learn good, and for that reason and only that reason do we suffer. We can never become just Netherlanders, or just English or representatives of any country for that matter. We will always remain Jews.”

– From the diary of Anne Frank, April 11, 1944



Anti-Semitism is unique amongst the hatreds in the world in a
combination of four aspects: 1) Longevity — it’s been around a long time 2)
Universality — virtually everywhere in the world 3) Intensity — it’s
expressed in a particularly virulent manner 4) Confusion — there is
surprisingly little agreement on why people hate the Jews.


Historians offer many “reasons” to explain why people are anti-Semitic:
Jews are too powerful or too lazy; too separate or a threat to “racial
purity” through assimilation; pacifistic or warmongers; capitalist
exploiters or revolutionary communists; the “killers” of Jesus or the
progenitors of Jesus; possessors of a Chosen People mentality or an
inferiority complex. These reasons have one thing in common — they have
nothing to do with our being Jewish. One might think that we are just the
victims of bad luck — always possessing the needed quality to be hated
wherever we are in the world at exactly that time in history.
