The world of academic liberalism is inspiring the sort of garbage written (and thought) above. Instead of asking why Israel and Jews would be perceived either negatively or as nonexistant in Germany, we should be asking why the world (or Jews) are surprised at such thought. If we can assume that religion, which in its simplest form embodies a lifestyle and system of beliefs passed down from one generation to the next, why wouldn't a "religion" based on hatred be passed down? Are we honestly stupid enough to think that the next generation of Americans won't hate extremist Islam, or that the next generation of Arabs won't hate Israel? Of course not. It is ludicrous to expect differently of a nation that collectively, and despite what Europeans would say, unapologetically, massacred an entire people.
