Why do I have this feeling I am debating a little girl...

Quoting from pbs.org/newshour/show/in-denmark-auschwitz-survivors-lament-the-rise-of-anti-semitism

In Denmark, Auschwitz survivors lament the rise of anti-Semitism

Wanna try again?

And I could be pope by Monday. Would have and could have are for the drunks explaining their failures, so don't waste my time.

But, if you have a link to the interviews with pogromers and an explanation of why they were so mean, you have my attention.

Did you have to have experienced the first Vesuvius eruption to know logically it must have been hellish?!

Since you tend to play stupid, I will do it for you. From:

global100.adl.org/map:

Total adult population of countries surveyed: 4 billion.
People in the world who harbor anti-Semitic attitudes: 1 billion.


Do you know why? If so, Would you care to share it with us?

Once again, to paraphrase Disraeli, there are lies, there are damned lies, and then there are statistics!

Give me your truth why 1 billion people are anti-semites.

Jews have historically gotten bad press, aided and abetted by the Catholic Church.

Yeah, those damn lying statisticians at ADL, which stands for Anti-Defamation League.

Once again, to paraphrase the Anti-Defamation League and their website

global100.adl.org/map

what is your truth why 1 billion people are anti-semites?
Lyzko 30 | 7,397

Yep, those stubborn stats'll getcha every time!

My truth? There's only one, I always learned.

Most people don't hate anybody.

A new monument here in Poland: notesfrompoland.com/2021/03/24/polish-town-commemorates-lost-jews-with-new-memorial/

I didn't say all. Your "most" is pointless. "Most" don't shoot people in the US but that didn't stop you from saying that the US is a violent place.

So, again, why were Jews hated by those who participated in pogroms, anti-semitic vandalism, and other hateful acts?

Tell us what you think the answer is.

I am not a pogromer so I don't know what drives them.
Again, why are Jews hated?
jon357 67 | 16,921

I don't know what drives them.

Nor me. You are asking a question though, and repeating it ad nauseam.

And it's a broad question, since you're essentially asking why violent expressions of racism occur.

I doubt you will find a simple answer to such a wide-ranging question.

I doubt you will find a simple answer to such a wide-ranging question.

That is why I am asking a Jew who, like the ADL, studied that problem and did their best to find out what drives the haters.

and repeating it ad nauseam.

And I will continue until the weasel gives me a straight answer to this simple question:

Why are Jews hated by those who hate them?
jon357 67 | 16,921

studied that problem

I doubt even the ADL could give a simple answer about why the uneducated fear people different from themselves.

so stay away

No. It's an interesting subject.

Jews being mistreated in Poland.

A tragic history.

This is in the news today, about Slonim.

Go away.

No.

An interesting website here about pre-war life for Jewish Poles.

If anyone hasn't seen this film, I can recommend it. Based on home movies from the period.

Hey, teach, take it to your class. We are not kids and we know how to use the internet and google things.

Tough. It's a good documentary film about Poland, is based on footage taken on home cine cameras by families in the 1930s and is very worth watching.

It's best not to assume that people rely on google for things. The film has been widely praised here. It's unusual, however it gives a glimpse of a way of life that has now largely disappeared.

Very good questions to the topic, Rich.

What some here forget is that the American sense of fairness demands that we hear both sides. Since the other side is not represented here, I have a moral right to ask the accusers what they know about the motives of those they accuse. The accusers are not allowed to play stupid and be taken seriously since, according to the ADL, the problem of antisemitism is massive and global. I am not going to be silent when Poland seems to be their favorite and the only target without an explanation why.

This ADL website tells where but not why:

Kinda tough to be even-handed with a German SS goon killing a typically defenseless, unarmed shtettl Jew probably twice the other man's size! For this reason, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising proved once and for all to the Germans as well as the rest of the world that Maccabee spirit, namely, that the Jews weren't nebishy chumps:-)

Again, excluding Nazis, why are Jews hated by those who hate them?
