    You are right in bringing in the relative political power of each group, I agree with that. But you missed the crucial point: Middle Eastern antisemitism is found in every Middle Eastern country and thus has a population base of over 200 million people. It is THAT antisemitism which we are talking about. Clearly THEY are not reflecting the angst of a colonized people at all. In fact, it was the Jews in THOSE countries who historically were the objects of what is correctly called "internal colonialism", namely the oppression , humiliation and persecution of a minority by the majority. It is THOSE historical attitudes which allowed the ethnic cleansing of Jews from Arab lands AND which feeds the rage against Jews , a rage which is completely DISPROPORTIONAL to what the Jews have done. After all, those very same masses of people who feel hatred against of Jews sit quite idly as hundreds of thousands of their own are murdered in gruesome ways. This is rather odd.
