But again, the wealth and power thing ties into the petty jealousy thing. You don't see white people getting upset that visible minorities are proportionately under-represented with the occasional token exception such as a black president deadlocked with white-dominated senates, congresses and states. There's an unfair perception that Jews enjoy disproportionate power in politics, finance and media, and a lot of the people fueling this perception and attempting to use it to justify racist positions are only doing so because they wish they had such privileges for themselves. I'm sure on a demographic basis, you can find ample statistical evidence that Jews hold a disproportionate share of wealth and power in Western societies, but I don't think you'll find any such disproportion when you evaluate their positions relative to their education levels. Hollywood only has so much power to make audiences like or dislike a Jewish actor or director. Politicians only have so much power to convince apathetic voters to elect them, and ironically most US Jews consistently vote for politicians who don't support the existing power structure. I've never seen anyone ever come up with a list of prominent Jews who got their jobs for being Jewish over clearly more qualified individuals, although I'm sure it happens every once in a while just as nepotism occurs in any other group. I've read claims that originally Judaism was highly evangelical, but it had little success in spreading because of the circumcision requirement applying to adult converts. That's a pretty highly charged accusation, there. Did you actually bother to ask any Israelis or Jews for their opinions on the issue, or are you just making things up? If Israel had such a lust for German blood, they wouldn't be sending diplomats to wine and dine with them every week, wouldn't have made it one of their most vital trading partners, wouldn't tolerate 100,000 citizens having dual German citizenship. You'd read something in the Israeli media about either nuking Germany or demanding a portion of its territory for a sovereign Jewish state, and I don't see nada. I think it seems far more plausible that Israel's animosity towards Palestinians is tied directly to the Palestinians' refusal to recognize Israel's basic right to exist as a sovereign nation and as the ancestral homeland of the Jewish people, and the resulting conflicts that have lasted over 100 years. Edit: To be fair, there's a rapidly growing religious nationalist sector in Israel which seems determined to clash with the Palestinians at all costs for messianic purposes, but the conflict was already raging long before they showed up.
