Published on Sep 9, 2017 by the AishVideo YouTube channel – By Rabbi Mordechai Becher – Three reasons: envy, racism, uniqueness.
Also, from unitedwithisrael.org – A rabbi identifies some of the reasons for the tremendous amount of hate directed at the small nation of Israel.
Mark Twain, considered by many to be America’s greatest writer, eloquently described the prominence of the Jewish people:
“If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of star dust lost in the blaze of the Milky Way. Properly the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people … He has made a marvelous fight in the world, in all the ages; and has done it with his hands tied behind him.”
Why all the attention? Why must the Jew’s hands be “tied behind him,” even as he or she works to better mankind?
Rabbi Mordechai Becher eplains the role played by envy, racism, and uniqueness in today’s anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism.
