In europe the antisemitism is rampant. I know what I am talking about , since I am european and I did post messages in a portuguese message board for more than a year. Back in 2002 , 2003 , in the message board in wich I posted people claimed Sharon was NAZI. Some wrote that ( quote ) Too many jews and Nazis had survived the Holocaust ". In a twisted logic this made sense to the people of that board since they were convinced that the jews were the new nazis. The moderator of the board told me I was the son of a lesser god since I did not support a palestinian state . I Had to leave the board . Other guy send me a message saying : I will keep an eye on you JEW. This is Europe. IDF did not help either since too many palestinian civilians got killed during the intifada and these deaths certainly did not help israel image abroad.
