Anti-Semitism is really woke these days

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.

Yeah, jealousy is probably a big factor. But also stupid and no reason for it. Two big factors in their success are:
1) Very well orchestrated tribalism (good for them, they look after their own people in business).
2) The Talmud. If fou want to learn from their success (because jealousy makes you an idiot) then just go to any Rabbi (or any Jew that it relatively well) and ask him to talk about the Talmud. There is a lot of wisdom that helps Jews succeed.

The one side has the capability to move forward, the other not, this creates a huge potential difference.

Jealousy sometimes but sometimes communities of Jews (like any other kind of people) do things that make other people agitated. Nothing happens in a vacuum.

The Talmud also contains..... questionable rants and ravings and would do well with a good mass edit.

Another female Jewish MP has left the Labour party, apparently bullied out of the movement she has worked in for decades. Louise Ellman, MP for Liverpool Riverside, announced in a letter last night that she ‘cannot advocate a government led by Jeremy Corbyn’ because he ‘is not fit to be Prime Minister’. She complains that ‘anti-Semitism has become mainstream in the Labour Party’ and that the leader ‘has attracted the support of too many anti-Semites’.


It is a damning letter, and one that has widely been tweeted by the colleagues Ellman has left behind as proof that something needs to change in the party. The problem is that we’ve seen this before: the same MPs made the same sort of comments when Luciana Berger quit earlier this year. Ellman’s departure shows that their pleas fell on deaf ears. She had been facing trigger ballots with her local party, and local members had tabled a no-confidence vote in her on Yom Kippur.
