Looking for a good book on anti-Semitism?
Anti-Semitism is a term coined, ironically, by a German anti-Semite in 1879. As a phenomenon, it can be traced back at least 2,000 years as Greeks and then Romans noted how only the Jews objected to worshipping other peoples' gods or eating at their tables.
European Christian anti-Semitism was historically the most vicious, and led directly to the Holocaust. Yet anti-Semitism has also been a part of the Moslem world and has occurred even in countries where there are no Jews!
It's amazing how masses of people have believed the rubbish that the anti-Semites have produced over the centuries. It's one thing if they don't like us. After all, the Jews have always been a bit of a bother to some, because we have insisted for the last few thousand years on monotheism in a world that wasn't monotheistic, and we've mostly not mixed very much with other folks. But it has been difficult convincing the world that it could manage, really, without inventing anti-Semitic canards now and then, one more preposterous than the other, and killing Jews to satisfy themselves. Theodore Herzl believed that anti-Semitism would disappear with the creation of the Jewish State. So far, that hasn't been the case. Moslem anti-Semitism and now European anti-Semitism only thinly disguised as anti-Israelism are lately getting worse, not better.
Here are some books on anti-Semitism that may help increase your understanding - or at least knowledge - of it. Many relate to the Holocaust and historical processes in Europe that led to it.
