And it is not anti gentile to make the claim you are a ‘chosen’ people? The whining is particularly tieresome, Mr. Fredman.
The animosity between Jews and what was originally a Jewish cult later called Christianity began early in Christianity’s history. DO NOT forget that Judaism was a recognized religion by the Romans whereas Christianity at first was not and as such it did not have the protection afforded to Judaism. The early persecutors of Christians were in fact other Jews. The story of Saul of Tarsus, who later became the apostle Paul and who was one of those early persecutors and haters of Christianity is a well known example. I believe some parts of the text in the New Testament reflects an ongoing and reciprocal dislike of Jews and Christians.
The fortunes of Christians and Jews, however, reversed themselves when Christianity became the official religion of the Roman empire, and the persecuted became the persecutors. Pay back’s a bitch as some like to say.
While we are on this early history, let’s make it very clear that the Romans did not destroy Jerusalem or prosecute a war against Jews because they were Jews but because they had the unmitigated temerity to attempt rebellion. The Romans did not tolerate that behavior. They crucified somewhere around 5,000 slaves after the Spartacan rebellion.
There is an unfortunate propensity on the part of some Jews such as yourself to call out the bad behavior of non Jews while ignoring the equally ugly and noxious behavior of their fellow Jews.
