Anti-semitism, like all types of racism, is a mixture of jelousy, bitterness and sometimes to a much smaller extent valid reasons. Why did Hitler kill Jews? Because Jews were at the elite of then German society. Jelousy. Why are the Jews being persecuted in America- because you won't meet a Harvard professor, a brain surgeon or a physicist without Goldman, Goldberg, or Goldstein as his/her last name.Jelousy. The trigger may be Operation cast lead but there will always be anti-semitism. Clean up your act in Israel, but don't think it will stop your people's persecution.
