Here is a short list of attacks and exercises in hatred on Jews during their long history:
The Hittites; the Egyptians; the Babylonians; the Greek occupation; the Roman occupation; the expulsion from Judea; the Christian inquisition; the Ghettoization of Jewish populations within various countries; the exclusion of Jews from U.S. government positions, country clubs, neighborhoods, hotels, restaurants; the attempted extermination by the Germans; the barring of entry into Palestine by the British; the attack by Palestinians after lsrael became a nation (the Arabs were given an opportunity of citizenship, cultural autonomy, and property rights); the attack from Egypt (called the Six-Day War); the continued acts of terrorism on Israeli citizens and Jews everywhere, along with the pledge by its enemies to destroy Israel.
Israel has only fought to defend itself throughout the centuries and the Jewish people have adhered to their faith and family despite acts of bigotry, mischaracterization and demonizing that would have crushed any other culture.
No wars of conquest; no colonization of others; no proselytizing of their faith or bragging about themselves.
Never miss a local story.
