I have read about anti-Jewish sentiments that have existed in many countries in the world for hundreds of years. I am interested in where this attitude came from and why it has persisted up to the present day. I don't want this thread to discuss the current military policies of the Israeli government. There have been many threads about that. I am rather interested to discuss long-standing anti-Semitism and to understand where it came from and why it has continued for so long.
