What the Book of Esther can teach us, today

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom

Super arrogant Haman was angry at Mordechai for refusing to bow to him because of his Jewish faith, (Esther 3:4). But Hamnan wanted to erase the entire Jewish people (Esther 3:6).
No one conducts an anti-Greek campaign because of Jeff Bezos or an anti-Arab campaign because of Carlos Slim.
When one attacks Soros for his views, and for this alone, that is one thing. Incidentally he is an ardent anti-Zionist anti-Israel - in action, funding.
But if one attacks him because his roots to one certain people, that means that it's not about the matter in hand, but about 'default' hatred that will use anything that can be linked somehow to the term J.

The same obsessed about Jews will never focus in Jewish traits like kindness and aid, all over the world. As it doesn't serve the ultimate blond hatred purpose. Blind, because the default oldest hatred also known as Anti-Semitism changes its excuse through history.
