Scholars are right when they say that one of the causes of anti-Semitism is the belief that all Jews are responsible for the crucifixion of Jesus. From the fact that this is one cause, it cannot be concluded that it is the only motivation. That all Jews are anti-Christian, free-thinkers, persecutors of religion, atheists should also be exposed as wrong. In the same vein those who make the entire Christian world and its leadership responsible for the Holocaust are also wrong. The most significant cause of anti-Semitism today is Israel's illegal occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, East Jerusalem (actually total Jerusalem) and the Golan Heights. Added to the occupation is the harsh, brutal, murderous treatment of the Palestinian people. Is the leadership in Israel aware of this fact?
