Back to the earliest days of civilization

Reader comment on item: Anti-Semitism Evolves

The deep seated resentment is that God choose a people to be his own. The Jews.

Others who were not chosen have resented this all throughout history.

This is really part of human nature. If one in the family is treated special the others resent that individual and want to get rid of that person! Joseph in the days of old is a great example. He was sold into slavery by his own brothers! Their father was told that the wild animals had killed him.

And finally, all this can be ultimately laid at the feet of God. Folks are mad at God for doing this. { Not unlike the recent U.S. elections where folks voted their moral values.
