9 Reasons People Hate Jews

download (2)Anti-Semitism is arguably the strangest phenomena in existence. What is the driving force behind it? The world’s population presently exceeds 7 billion people, but Jews make up less than 1% of that number. What is it about Jews, that is so strangely unique, that billions of people feel a type of animosity or even contempt for them?

#1. There is a villain on the loose in the universe, whose name is Lucifer/Satan/The Devil/The Deceiver. Many people do not believe in the existence of Satan, but they would agree, that there is much evil in the world. Evil does not accidentally exist. There is an evil person who perverts righteousness and his name is Satan. Satan hates humans and he has built a career around killing, stealing and destroying humanity. Of all the people-groups in the world, Satan hates Jews the most, and he spreads this hatred like a cancer.

#2. Almighty YaHVeH promised Abraham, Isaac and Israel, that through them would all the nations of the earth be blessed. It is human nature for siblings to be jealous of one another. All the other tribes and nations of the earth are jealous that the Almighty chose Israel instead of them to bless the earth.

#3. The Holy Bible was given to us by Almighty God through the people of Israel. In its pages the Almighty reveals His plan to send the Messiah into the world. Satan hates this and has attacked Israel much on account of it. In the Book of Micah 5:2, the Prophet Micah under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit prophesied, that the Messiah would be born in the Jewish town of Bethlehem, and that He is the Eternal One. (read it for yourself)

#4. Christ the Messiah made this very strange statement in the Book of John chapter 4: “Salvation is of the Jews.” Did you know that Christ was a Jew? Christ was born into the tribe of Judah in the Jewish town of Bethlehem. This event changed the course of human history. Satan hates the thought of a Savior rescuing the souls of men and he has persecuted Israel again and again for their part in bringing the Messiah into the world.

#5. In the Book of John 14:6, Yahshua Jesus claimed to be the exclusive way to heaven. The other religions of the world hate the fact, that Yahshua Jesus said there was no other way to heaven.

#6. Yahshua Jesus is the most famous Jew in all of history. Jesus Jew died on the cross for the sins of you and me in A.D. 33.

#7. Three days later, Jesus Jew rose from the dead exactly as He prophesied that He would. No other person in the history of the world has ever accomplished this impossible feat.

#8. Because Satan is the king of sinners, they hate what he hates: Jews, the King of the Jews (Yahshua Jesus), and the disciples of the King of the Jews (Christians). Because man is a fallen being and every man, woman, boy and girl is born with a fallen nature, they don’t understand their own rebellious nature against the truth. This hatred is a spiritual hatred and can only be discerned spiritually. Fallen man cannot discern this hatred. Only through knowing Christ on a personal level will anyone ever regain what mankind lost in the Garden of Eden through sin.

#9. The enemies of the Jews also want the Land of the Jews for themselves. This includes the holy city Jerusalem, which is the exact center of the world.

  1. You have hit on an important question and subject. Last fall I read, The History of The Jews by Paul Johnson. Johnson is a christian and a friend of the Jews. I have also read a half dozen other books on the Jews, some by Jewish scholars. In some ways the jealousy stems from the Jews claiming to be the ” teacher’s pet.” Part of it that the people in the mid-east see Jewish history very different. That is they don’t believe that there was a Red Sea crossing or that two million plus people lived in that rocky desert without normal food and without an obvious supply of water. Even to this day there is no evidence of the bones of millions of cattle and no record of the walls of Jericho tumbling down. Thus they hold the Jews in contempt when they try to keep that old story alive.
    On another note when we think of the Jews being God’s favored; it is hard to reconcile that with history when they have been slaughtered and persecuted in almost every country and in almost every generation since the tenth century before Christ. Just some thoughts.

    • Thanks for you input James. There is some archaeological evidence supporting the Holy Bible narrative concerning Jericho, if you look in the right places. Also, Luke 19:41-44 states why Israel was overcome after Christ. Verse 44: they did not know the time of their visitation. Also in the Old Testament, they were punished again and again and again when they rebelled against YaHVeH. Second Chronicles 7:12-22 also gives an explanation for these catastrophic events against the Hebrews.

  2. Having taught the bible for many years, I have only had twice when a student asked me if I really believed that Seth lived to be 807 years old and that Enos lived to be 905 years old. ( Gen. 5 ) He was a medical student and said that he just couldn’t see the human cellular system holding out that long. A doctor and two nurses were in the class and indicated that we shouldn’t take those numbers seriously.
    Daniel Boorstin a jewish historian has said that at that time in history men didn’t know much about time. He goes on for 50 pages or so telling of how slow men were in learning to track time.
    At any rate in keeping with your theme here; men get very angry at the jews for claiming that they have ancestors who lived to be several hundred years old when their own kind seldom lived to be 75 or 80.

    • First, it is ridiculous for people to think they could comprehend Almighty God. His ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. Let us consider a much more difficult phenomena. By faith, Almighty God created the heavens and the earth out of nothing. Men would say that is scientifically impossible. But they don’t know how the Almighty did it. They would argue some big-bang phenomena, but they would not explain where the matter for the big-bang came from. They try to make a leap from material to biology. They will never be able to explain it, because the finite cannot grasp the infinite. Really it comes down to faith. We know for a fact that we exist and we know that there is incredibly complex design. Just because a person cannot rationalize something does not make it untrue. The Almighty likes being shrouded in mystery and He is pleased to insist that men trust (have faith) about many things. He will still judge men righteously and fairly. It is impossible to please Him without faith.
