Wow - that's a great find CS. This unreasonable hatred of Jews has been hot from the beginning of time and I blame the Bible for it.There are many sentences and stories in the Bible that teach Christians to hate Jews. It's not just the Koran, the Bible too contributed to this hatred. That's the reason why you will find many Irish and Italians dead set against the Jewish people, the two main countries that are staunch RCs and believe more in the Bible than making use of their brains.Yup, here I am a RC saying so and not afraid of criticism from RCs or other Christians. Truth is Truth. You can't get away from it.MariaS
It's most illogical for Christians who dislike Jews to be doing so, for, after all, Jesus was a Jew...The problem is perhaps derived from the translation and interpretation of the Bible itself. Translating it from its original language to English is one thing, and then peoples' interpretation is another. It's so easy to misunderstand selected passages, even while such misunderstanding actually contradicts other passages. One has to read the whole thing, and put everything together, and pay particular attention to seeming contradictions, remembering that something may have been lost in the translation and that we may misinterpret. One has to be careful and mindful. So many principles to take together simultaneously, etc...The wise amongst us are those who don't contradict the main principles, such as loving one's neighbor, etc. Of course, it's true that the Bible does indicate that there's "a time for war", but, clearly, that logically would be self-defensive or defensive of innocent, helpless victims who are threatened, as we saw with the Crusades, notwithstanding those individuals who went bad and went too far.The anti-Semitism amongst all groups, including even some Christians, is, as far as I can tell, plainly wrong, and must be stopped.
"In Ireland as in Britain, the most prominent supporters of the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) are the academics and the trade union movement. The call for a boycott of Israel has been endorsed by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU); IMPACT, the largest public-sector union in the Republic of Ireland; and the Northern Ireland Public Service Alliance (NIPSA), the largest public-sector union in Northern Ireland. Israel is a soft target in Ireland as there is very little organized opposition to the boycott calls. "ANY SURPRISES HERE????Is it the Irish, the Bibel, or just another example of global liberal fascism?Paragraph found here:http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2009/03/rampant-anti-semitism-in-ireland.htmlWe all should know the answer to this one.
