I find it really interesting that so many of you seem to conveniently forget the antisemitism of the Catholic and Protestant churches that began with the Romans and persisted up until the present day. Even the PreChristian Greeks and Romans were as capable of the hatred of the jews as is any modern day anti semite.

I recently visited a protestant church in my area and I listened to a lengthy speech about the end of days and the comming of the Messiah. The sermon was summed up with the statement that when the Messiah comes, the Jews will be forced to convert to Christianity and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The response to which was a loud HALLELUJA and shouts of PRAISE JESUS.

To tell you the truth, I had all I could do to keep from bursting out in laughter at such a preposterous notion. But at the same time I realized that there was a very dark side to this whole matter. It was this same sentiment that drove the Crusades in Europe and every pogrom in Russia and Poland to the tune of the deaths of thousands of innocent people. There is as much blood on the hands of the church as there is on the hands of the Mosque and neither one of them, as far as I can see, has ever lived up to the idea of being a religion of peace.
