    For generations Europeans told them they were not - the reminded the Jews in many many cruel ways that they were an alien race in Europe; not welcomed.

Many of the the descendants of those same Europeans are not satisfied, and need to find new ways to go after the Jews - now that they've gotten rid of them they can happily claim them as their own and call them "colonists".
