    Not Good. I myself was a vague anti-semite until recently discovering my own Jewish quarter (maternal grandmother, converted to Catholicism). Most generally humans possess animus, a capacity and DESIRE to hate something (anything). But to hate you need a target and a rationale. A narrative is required of whom to hate and why. Its pretty daft in the 21st century for 'Jews' to be a viable hate target, since Jews generally behave themselves, with the obvious exception of poor old neurotic Israel on a bad day. (The pscholgogy and rationale for that is a little longer than the average attention span.) Yet in the west, and for no real reason, Judaism has been perceived as an enduring symbolic rival (enemy). The old 'money lender' line meets primitive territorialism. All of these reasons are totally obsolete of course, the modern 'Jew' in Sweden and everywhere else is totally indiscernable in every way from either the locals or other 'ethnic minorities', except for a slight tendency to excel, and perhaps (rarely) a slight tendency to 'believe in God'. In general it is wise to leave any city that is over-run with lawless unemployed youth. But dont go to Israel, the same and worse in that region overrun with lawless unemployed idiots of every age. Come to Asia, where the concept of 'Jew' is largely irrelevant.
