    Antisemitism has never died. It just went back to hiding in religions or reformed to be about Israel

    Let's be clear: the figure Riders quoted is about hate crimes in the USA. That for hate crimes in Pakistan would be rather different!

    Attacks on Jews in the USA and parts of Europe is a scandal, but the conduct of Jewish colonialists in Palestine is hardly helping the Jewish public image.

    English language articles. A and the. Christians are not the minority, they're a minority.

    You can expect to be treated as second or third class citizen in the retail sector, being told that it's offensive to wish people Merry Christmas because you're forgetting about minority religions. You can expect to be met with hatred from LGBT (or pro-abortion) groups, even if you're tolerant of the LGBT crowd, getting typecast as hateful simply for being committed to your faith. Even in forums, when you start coming across as Christian and/or conservative, many websites label you under their abusive language/harassment rules and start thinking up ways to ban you. Pope Benedict disagreed with you:

    Persecution of Christians - Wikipedia

    60%? Try 80%.

    Is that to say Jews are not also heavily oppressed? Of course they are. The Holocaust, Russian pogroms, and just general distate for them. Even Hollywood mocks them. They now have a population about 14 million, less than half of which actually live in Israel. Current World Jewish Population Still Below Pre-Holocaust Numbers

    Oh people getting mad when you wish them merry Christmas oh dear how traumatizing, great comparison to all the Synagogues being bombed and sat on fire!

    That's bullcrap. Christians have bullied me around in Tx for ages. In fact the exact opposite happens.Christians are the majority. Christians are 70 percent of AMerica.

    In fact when I try to say Happy Hollidays around Christmas I have Christians shouting at me about Jesus.

    But I have interesting question for you. If any of that is true which it is not statistics say the majority of hate crimes are commited against Jews which is what this thread is about.


    But I got a question why is it that you Christians up here seem to be able to cry persecution in America and at the same time say the exact opposite?

    America is a Christian country! When we put up threads about the Christian church attendance going down,you guys scream out Christianity is taking over America is Christian!

    Well when Im in politics and say were gonna get someone to replace Trump you Christian Trump supporters scream NOOOOOO Trump will be reelected !

    Praise God America is a Christian country! It can not be both ways which is it is America a Christian country that is all Christian or are you a minority can not have it both ways.

    Sense you say yall are more persecuted then the Jewish folks how many dozens of churches have been shot up with shootings been burned down and been bombed this year?

    It is a fact that the Jewish class is being persecuted which brings us to an interesting conundrum because some Christians believe they are God's people because they are persecuted, but, it seems to me that the Jews are being persecuted more. Why doesn't the persecution of them prove that they are God's people?

    The very inability for people to separate the association of Israel with Jew is a problem.

    Sorry must be "lost in translation". I was agreeing by ending with outright stating the point using your comment as if my own premises.

    That was my first opinion. I think I might have two heads. And, OMG, two-headed people are persecuted.

    Thanks for the post. How is Fortworth doing? It was in your pic profile.




    What do you think about the lyrics?

    Do you think lyrics like these contribute to 'hate' crimes or deter from 'hate' crimes?




    What about these?




    Future hate crimes might be???


    Say NO to H/C - hate crimes.


    A hate crime (also known as a bias-motivated crime or bias crime[1]) is a prejudice-motivated crime which occurs when a perpetrator targets a victim because of his or her membership (or perceived membership) in a certain social group or race.

    Examples of such groups can include and are almost exclusively limited to: sex, ethnicity, disability, language, nationality, physical appearance, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation. Non-criminal actions that are motivated by these reasons are often called "bias incidents".

    "Hate crime" generally refers to criminal acts which are seen to have been motivated by bias against one or more of the social groups listed above, or by bias against their derivatives. Incidents may involve physical assault, damage to property, bullying, harassment, verbal abuse or insults, mate crime or offensive graffiti or letters (hate mail)

    The Young Men Who Started Syria's Revolution Speak About Daraa, Where It All Began


    There was once a person who 'interpreted' symbols. One day a sign appeared on the wall with some 'message'.. Although the symbols said something, it was unsure what it said. So they called in the symbols interpreter. The interpreter first thanked The LORD God (J)esus Christ above and began to tell of the 'symbols'.

    the person said. 'Hear ye all. In today's time, there is too much discrimination. The world's persons say it is not right for you to be 'gay' and need to be/turn straight. Do this lest you burn by God.'


    The person said that that is what the symbols represented.


    This was in 2011. We are now in 2018, 7 years later... One of the graffiti writers is:

    Naief Abazid had no inkling that he was about to launch a revolution, or anything else that has followed. He was just doing what the bigger kids told him to. Trying to make them laugh. “It’s your turn, Doctor Bashar al-Assad, ” he painted, just under the window of the principal’s office of the all-boys al-Banin school in his hometown of Daraa. The date was Feb. 16, 2011.

    Vicious Dog Attack Leaves Man Without Ears In Arlington

    Arlington police are searching for the owners of two dogs that mauled a man Wednesday.

    It happened in the 2300 block of Cripple Creek Drive.

    When officers arrived, they found the victim, later identified as Milton Sturgis, on the street as the dogs were attacking him. One officer discharged his weapon and struck both dogs. Officers were able to get the dogs off Sturgis, who was transported to a hospital with serious injuries. Animal control arrived and took the dogs to a local emergency facility where they later died.

    Well that sounds typical for sidewalk art but I don't pay attention to that stuff. NoI do not believe music affects people that way.

    So if checking an A.C unit for spyware is not odd why is this piece odd?

    the, 'Bashar al-Assad' part is missing.

    In other words, who makes the distinction of what is really real verses what is not. Who is to say that Mr. Cervantes did not find spyware?

    Strictly speaking the State of Israel is the country. Israel is an overloaded term which could mean 1) the State of Israel, a country, or 2) an name given to the patriarch Jacob, a single person, or 3) a collective term for his descendants, a people which could refer to all the tribes of his descendants or only to the Jews. It really depends on the context.

    Jews have been a top target of hate crime for the last couple of thousand years. That doesn't mean others haven't been targets, some have been wiped out so you don't even hear about their existing before.
