Anti-Semitism is a painful but vital component of Jewish and Judeo-Christian identity

Yes, that is true – the anti-Semitism is a painful but vital component of Jewish identity, and the understanding of this is particularly important to win the war for revival of the Judeo-Christian America.

From the news-media: “Any person who follows the news knows that anti-Semitism is on the rise around the world. As it has spread, so has our insight that this is a hatred with many faces, a many-headed monster fed by myths about Jews that will not die.” – That is a very alarming statement but with no even a hint for what is the reason for this hate and what to do.

So, what is the reason for this hate and what to do?

The All-Mighty Supreme Power that formed the entire world (God, or for those who are uncomfortable with this word – the Nature, or the History, or the big Bang) congregated the humans into different nations competing with each other for the best way of living together in spiritual and economic happiness.

The way for the entire Jewish Nation was defined in the Torah by the statement that the humans are created individually “in the image and likeness of God” with individual freedoms and responsibilities with the responsibilities prescribed by the Ten Commandments.

Inside the entire Jewish nation, individual Jews have been competing with each other for the best way of managing the entire Jewish Nation (nowadays including the State of Israel), and for the best way of helping the other nations live the Ten-Commandments way.

Nowadays this competition could be seen in the spiritual, social, and political battles among numerous religious denominations of Judaism (Haredim, Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, etc.), among numerous authoritative rabbis, and among politics-focused Jewish groups.  

In any Jewish group, every Jew, following his/her understanding of the “individual freedoms and responsibilities,” is trying to find the best way for living Jewishly and for injecting the “Jewish way” into the life of the non-Jewish compatriots.

The way for the other nations was opposite to the Jewish way – instead of the individual freedoms and responsibilities the imposition on the entire nation, and expanding it to the entire world, the will of one man-god or group-god. The history is full of such examples with recent histories of the Nazi Germany, Communist Russia, Autocratic China, or Islamic Iran.

The Jewish way has won, and the evidence of this victory is the Christianity that is rooted in the Judaism (Judaism had religionized the Jewish way of life), the Western civilization and the USA, which are founded on the Judeo-Christian identity/morality.

The Jewish way’s victory resulted in the eternal anti-Semitism that is the expression of unhappiness of the losers who are nowadays in the pagan spiritual swamp of the Judeo-Christian America and the entire Judeo-Christian Western Civilization.   

Without understanding of the Jewish identity of the entire Jewish Nation, its role in creating the Christianity and the Judeo-Christian Western Civilization it is impossible to understand the role of the Jews in our world, the roots of anti-Semitism and how to mitigate it.

A thought for the rabbis and priests to consider: The religions of Judaism and Christianity were created by the human leaders to lead the transition from the pagan morality to the morality of One God guided by the Ten Commandments that is defined in the modern times as the national Judeo-Christian identity/morality. The religions of Judaism and Christianity are getting stronger – and the anti-Semitism is getting weaker – when they serve this purpose. The rabbis and priests should not place the other beliefs above the God’s Ten Commandments.     

A thought for those who are trying to figure out who are the Jews – a nation or a religion: The Jews are the morality which some All-Mighty Supreme Power ordered them to introduce into other nations, or even they themselves decided to do so.

A thought for those who are looking for the way to fight and mitigate the anti-Semitism: At all levels of education, begin teaching the unique identity/morality of the Jews (the God-guided morality – for those who understand it) where the public spiritual identity of the Judeo-Christian Western Civilization and the Judeo-Christian America is rooted.
