It’s not totally jealousy, although that certainly is a part of the existing hate. Rather, a large part of it is that the Jews came back into their country as free men and women, and the Arabs became fearful it would create that desire in their people.
Arabs had a quasi-feudal system; their rulers kept women as “PROPERTY” and they were afraid their women would want the same freedom the Jewish women had. And the people were horribly taxed by the landowners – keeping them very poor . . . that’s a major part of it as well, but . . . .
Jews are GOD’s CHOSEN PEOPLE. They are loved by God! God promises blessings on those who bless the Jews . . . .
Evil men can do nothing else but rise to hate and attempt to exterminate them, . . . as they have done for eons . . . .
God also promised curses on those who curse the Jew.
It’s time you looked in the mirror-of-emotions to judge where you stand, . . . . for the time is short!
“Jews constitute but 1% of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of star dust in the blaze of the Milky Way. Properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of; but he is heard of. He is as prominent on this planet as any other people. His commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine and abstruse learning are also altogether out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in the world in all ages and he has done it with his hands tied behind him.”
