“Why the world hates Jews”
August 9, 2006 Leave a comment
This is the title of a column written by film critic/author/radio host Michael Medved. Mr. Medved himself is Jewish and he rationally goes through 3 main reasons, which are as follows:
1. The emphasis on the “Chosen People” concept in the Bible
2. The prominence and prosperity of Jews in most nations in which they’ve established significant communities, and
3. The startling successes of the State of Israel in the mere 60 years of its existence.
Personally I think people who dislike the Israelites do so because of reason #1. They might cite other reasons but it boils down to the fact that God chose them and since we by nature are in rebellion against God, it carries over to those He chose to reveal Himself through. I reiterate, I fail to see how a Christian can be anti-semitic, was Jesus not Jewish?
