Wherever anti-Semitism prevails, the people involved are underwritting their own destruction.

Reader comment on item: Jewish Life in an Increasingly Muslim Europe

"And I [God] will bless those who bless you,

And the one who curses you I will curse."

Gen. 12:3a may or may not be recognized by the masses. But history recognizes it.

"It is a noteworthy fact of history that great conquerors, Alexander, Caesar, and Napolean, have always treated the Jews well: they recognized their religious function and sought to give it freedom to develop, for their own advantage as well as that of the Jews. On the other hand, lesser men, endowed with narrower outlooks, have failed to recognize the Jew and have sought to crush him. In their desire to impose an artificial uniformity, they 'broke down the boundares of people and put down the inhabitants' (Isa. 10:13). But such Procrustean methods are contrary to nature, and tyranny, whether towards Jews or towards others, has never secured permanent results. The same policy of religious unification has characterized subsequent dynasties, from the Assyrians to the Romanovs, and the same fate has overtaken them. The Jew has survived their disappearance." - Encyclopaedia Britannica, 14th ed., s.v. "Jews"

So long as Europe continues with this anathemetic dogma, so long will their economies, standard of living, right as soveriegn entities suffer.

It's not just what the Bible says. It's what history reveals.
