#1 OK, that explains why Muslims hate Jews. Now, since nobody else at the 'burg will, I must ask "why (with a few---statistically insignificant, exceptions) everybody else does?".

#2 I dunno, I've never understood it. I like Israel. I get pissed off when people attack it. Hmm, guess I'll go toss a pizza to the IDF.

#3 Not sure g(r)om. I have some notions, but I'm not certain of them. Should we all do as Paul said and begin by "examining ourselves" ?

#4 "why (with a few---statistically insignificant, exceptions) everybody else does?".
Not everybody else but, sadly, mostly everybody else.
It is a trait that binds evil people.
I really don't understand why.

#5 Legitimate question, grom. Although 'everyone' is stretching it a bit.
Several hundred years ago, Europe transitioned from states needing religious homogeneity to states needing ethnic homogeneity. On both counts, Jews lose out. This wasn't that much of a factor in the Anglosphere, where tolerance for Jews was greater.
In the 20th century, the Jews association (real or imagined) with world socialism harmed their image in many groups.
In the late 20th century, post modern Europe and many other places, simply don't have the capacity to stand up for democracy, the rule of law and tolerance (ie Israel) and seek to appease various groups of murderous thugs, ie Israel's enemies. The phrase I use is 'They want to stop the world and get off'. Not a real option, of course.
To answer your question, the Jews have been swimming against the tides of history for a long time. That they are still around and thriving, speaks volumes about the resilience of their culture.

#6 Mostly because their mothers and fathers taught them to hate Jews, Blacks, Chinese, Irish, Italians, and others who were not part of their tribe.

#7 The Jews accomplished the HISTORICAL gift of giving the concept of a Monotheistic Omnipotent God the Father to the world. This is the FOUNDATION of all Values in the Western world, whether they admit it or not. JEWISH values are the foundation of all western morality today.
All the GUILT in the moral world is thanks to the Jews. Good and Bad are judged by Jewish standards. If you don't want to bear your guilt you curse the jews and try to get another bus. Then you find out that the foundation of the entire ediface of Western thought is traceable directly to the Jews. Christianity couldn't even exist without its foundation in a single Jew boy....the Messiah.
In the final analysis you are caught and bound by the LAW of Moses, one way or another. If you get rid of the Jews you get rid of God and you get rid of your guilt. And everybody has that guilt. Its all around us, as common as air. You are guilty.
Kill the Jews. Kill God. Simple.
Jawohl, herr Himmler. Mohammed KNEW he had a problem when the Jews laughed at him. Himmler as we all know , had somethin' simler.

#8 Grom asks: why does everyone else hate the Jews?
Answer: because humans have to hate someone. Read Shirley Jackson's The Lottery for a further explanation.

#9 The haters said the same thing about the Hitietes and Vandels...etc.
They will also find another to hate.

#10 Read the Bible.
Morality came from God. Not the Jews. God chose the descendants of Abraham and Sarah as the nation where morality would be passed from God to men of all nations. Amplified on the summit between God and Moses on Mount Sinai. All of the prophets God spoke through over 1500 years were all Jews. God manifested himself in the flesh as Christ through the Jewish nation. Isreal means The Prince of God.
Men and elements in the spiritual world want to be their own god. Even many athiestic Jews choose to be their own god. And the terror that results from people being their own god continues, especially magnified towards a people God manifested Himself through.

#11 Saw a famous painting the other day depicting Hagar and Ishmail. Just saying.

#12 In my view Jews are perceived as successful which Hitler and muslims do not like.
They are a scapegoat when the economy is bad.The Jews dont help themselves either by not mixing with other faiths/employing their own people only.

#14 Like, wow.
I can see how some resent the Jew, however. They resent the success. They are losers looking to feel better about themselves. Kinda like old Mo' himself.

#15 Hmmmmm...Jack G....your last statement sounds a little incredulous. I'm 'christian' (not practising) and the small business that employs me is owned by a Jew. In fact all the Jews that I know easily mix with people of other faiths. So I'm not sure where you got that sense...

#16 LOL, Besoeker.

#17 But when the Jews rejected the appeasement and refused to convert to Islam, Mohammed simply and completely flipped. The Quran changed from love to threats and then pure hatred, cursing, and commandments to kill Jews. Rejection by the Jews became an intolerable obsession with Mohammed.
So Mohammed essentially just spat the dummy!
Muslims used to pray facing Jerusalem (like Jews)
but after being rejected, Mohammed received a "revelation" telling the Muslims to pray facing the Kabab and turn their backs to Jerusalem which is considered an insult especially when they lift their bums in the air.
