Even after extensive reading, I still can't figure out why some people don't like Jewish people. What did they do to deserve such hate over the years? There have been Jews in South Africa for centuries and we never had problems. Is it jealousy because they're disciplined and good with business? Seriously, what is it that causes someone to be antisemitic (question not applicable to Palestinians)?

Jealousy over the fact that Jews are gods chosen people.

I'd say they're just an easy scapegoat.
And throughout history, it's almost always been okay to pick on Jews with no repercussions (other than a couple decades after WWII)

Maybe. But, surely, there are many other "easy scapegoats" in the world to pick on. There's simply no excuse.

Who needs an excuse? Just pick a minority with more possessions than the majority (but not necessarily more than the elite of the majority), then after you have fooled the majority into believing the lies... kill, rape and loot.

Don't try to moralize everything that's a misdirection.

That sounds so eerily simmilar to something happening more and more in SA.
