Definition of Anti-Semitism: behavior discriminating
against Jews: policies, views, or actions that harm or discriminate
1 John 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of
the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither
he that loveth not his brother. (KJV)
The children of God and the children of the devil have opposite and distinct characters. The children of God "fear" (respect, stand in awe of, worship) the Almighty God of the Bible, and love His people. The children of the devil have NO fear whatsoever, they ridicule and blaspheme Almighty God, and hate Christians, Jews, or anyone who is not in their own little group. Anyone who continually harbors hate in their heart will eventually stand before the Great White Throne Judgment and hear the verdict: eternity in Hell!
Why Do People Hate The Jews?
Why has Anti-Semitism been so pervasive around the world? and for so many reasons? Is there is something horribly wrong with the Jews that they are hated by so many?
Between the years 250 CE and 1948 CE - a period of 1,700 years - Jews have experienced more than eighty expulsions from various countries in Europe - an average of nearly one expulsion every twenty-one years. Jews were expelled from England, France, Austria, Germany, Lithuania, Spain, Portugal, Bohemia, Moravia and seventy-one other countries.
Historians have classified six explanations as to why people hate the Jews:
- 1. Economic -- "We hate Jews because they possess too much wealth and power." The Jews are like any group or race of people . . . NOT all Jews are Wealthy.
- 2. Chosen People -- "We hate Jews because they arrogantly claim that they are the chosen people." The Bible clearly states that the Jews were "chosen" by God! (Deut.7:7; 1 Sam.12:22; 1 K.3:8; Dan.11:15; Ps.105:43. WHO are we to argue with GOD???
- 3. Scapegoat -- "Jews are a convenient group to single out and blame for our troubles." So, so true!
- 4. Deicide -- "We hate Jews because they killed Jesus." The Jews were responsible for Jesus' death, YES! But so were the Romans! So were we!!!
- 5. Outsiders, -- "We hate Jews because they are different than us." People dislike what or who they don't understand.
- 6. Racial Theory -- "We hate Jews because they are an inferior race." The Jews are by NO means an "inferior race." God has proven that in the past, and He shall prove in in the future as well! (Zech.12:9; 14:12).
Jews are hated for being a lazy and inferior race - but also for dominating the economy and taking over the world. They are hated for stubbornly maintaining their separateness and/or for posing a threat to racial purity through intermarriages. Jews are seen as pacifists and as warmongers; as capitalist exploiters and as revolutionary communists. People hate them for being a Chosen-People then on the other hand, say they are inferior. The Jews just can't seem to win no matter what.
Anti-Semitism is unique among all the hate groups in the world.
- Longevity. They have been hated for as long as they have been around.
- Universality. Nearly everywhere in the world.
- Intensity. People that hate the Jews express their hatred in a hostile and deadly way.
- Confusion. It is surprising how little agreement there is on WHY people hate the Jews. You would think that there would be one or two particular reasons for their hatred, but that is NOT the case!
The reasons Anti-Semitists have for their deep down hatred has one thing in common . . . it has nothing to do with Jews being Jewish. Do you think that the Jews are just the victims of bad luck? Or do you think that they may possess a certain quality needed to be hated . . . wherever or where ever they are in the world?
Anne Frank wrote in her diary on April 11, 1944: "Who knows -- it might even be our religion from which the world and all peoples learn good, and for that reason and that reason alone do we now suffer. We can never become just Netherlanders, or just English, or representatives of any other country for that matter. We will always remain Jews."
She made a point of stressing that Jews have something of special value to give to the world, and maybe that is precisely what the world has resented, and that is why people have persecuted Jews. Anne Frank identifies anti-Semitism as a hatred of Jewishness, a loathing altogether different from the bigotry or racism that other peoples experience.
At Sinai Jews were told that there is one God, Who makes moral demands on all of humanity. So, at Sinai the Jewish nation became the target for the hatred of those whose strongest drive is to liberate mankind from the shackles of conscience and morality. Are there evil, immoral Jews? Absolutely! There are evil, immoral people in EVERY race!
At Sinai the Jewish nation was appointed to be "a light unto the nations." But, in my humble opinion, they fell short. They did not serve as God intended for them to do. They rejected the Saviour when He came, instead of telling the world about Him (Mat.28:19-20). I believe that is why so many troubles have plagued the Jews down through the years. But, God has NOT forsaken them as some so-called evangelicals would have you believe. The church has NOT replaced the Jews as God's "chosen people". The Jews will have an opportunity to serve God in the future, as God intended for them to serve (Zec.12:10-11; Rev.chapter 7).
I CANNOT tolerate Anti-Semitism. It is WRONG!!! Our precious Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ was a Jew! The Jews gave us the Bible! Anyone who hates the Jews are NOT Christians. They CANNOT be! What did God tell Abram???
Genesis 12:1-3 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:  And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:  And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (KJV)
I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: ALL Anti-semitists are cursed by God!!!
In thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. IF you do NOT bless the Jews, God will NOT bless you! He says so!!!
The Holocaust was the systematic state-sponsored killing of about six million Jewish men, women, and children and millions of others by Nazi Germany and its collaborators during World War II. The Germans called this “the final solution to the Jewish question.” The word Holocaust is derived from the Greek holokauston, a translation of the Hebrew word 'olah, meaning a burnt sacrifice offered whole to God. This word was chosen because in the ultimate manifestation of the Nazi killing program—the extermination camps—the bodies of the victims were consumed whole in crematoria and open fires.
Nazi anti-Semitism and the origins of the Holocaust
Even before the Nazis came to power in Germany in 1933, they had made no secret of their anti-Semitism. Hitler developed the idea of the Jews as an evil race struggling for world domination. Nazi anti-Semitism was rooted in religious anti-Semitism and enhanced by political anti-Semitism. To this the Nazis added a further dimension: racial anti-Semitism. The logic of Nazi racial anti-Semitism led to annihilation. Hitler and his regime was guilty of the murder of about 6 million Jews!!!
Many neo-Nazis (new Nazis) promote Holocaust denial. They claim that the intentional mass murder—often in gas chambers— of about 6,000,000 Jews is a lie or grossly exaggerated. Most people accuse them of using Holocaust denial to make Nazism more palatable by removing its association with genocide. Some Holocaust deniers don't identify as neo-Nazis, while some, such as David Cole, are actually Jewish. Some neo-Nazis who don't deny the Holocaust have pointed out alleged immoral equivalencies (e.g. the bombing of Dresden and the Expulsion of Germans after World War II), or have justified executions by the Nazis as retaliations for sabotage, terrorism and subversion.
