The news reports that violent antisemitism surged 40% in 2014. I have a hard time understanding why the Jewish people are so hated across the world. I’m not Jewish and I don’t really know anyone personally who is. I’m sure some of them might be Jewish but they’re not very jewy.
I don’t see any good reason to hate them. Sure they have strange customs but how horrible is that? I would so love to belong to a group that has customs. I’m just a white guy in Texas surrounded by Mexicans. I’ve got nothing.
As far as I know, Jews don’t go around forcing their religion on others like Christians, Mormons and Radical Muslims. They just keep to themselves and live a good life. If we all did that the world would be a far better place.
I think antisemitism is based purely in jealousy. The Jewish do well because they are smart and have good family values. I think we could all learn a number of lessons from them. We should all cut them some slack and mind our own business for a change.
