Is antisemetism a serious problem, in global society?

Yes. Being hunted down, murdered, and ostrasized, simply because of a person's religion is a problem. Blaming an entire group for the poor actions of a few, in ANY situation, is a problem.

Side: Yes.

I probably agree with you but the problem here is that the question wasn't: Is it OK to hunt down, murder and ostracise people because of their religion. No other religions were even mentioned. Just anti-Semitism. It plays right into my argument that (some, not all) Jews feel entitled to special treatment.

In a lot of European countries it is illegal to question or deny the Holocaust. Not the actual Holocaust, mind. What it is illegal to question or deny is the narrative that it was all about wiping Jews out. And make no mistake about it: these laws were established because of Jewish lobbying. Whatever anybody thinks about the Holocaust is up to them just as much as it is up to people which god they want to believe in. Hence, I see a lot of common people fighting for the rights of people who don't have any intention of giving those same rights back when the shoe is on the other foot.

Yes, throughout the history of Judaism the Jewish people have been ostracized, subjected to discrimination and physical violence by the societies in which they live.

SO FAR this global antisemitism culminated in the holocaust which saw the murder of some 6 million Jews.

Due to their shrewd business acumen, work ethic and ingenuity the Jewish people enjoy a standard of living well above most other ethnic groups and this success is usually accompanied with a jealous rage from the lower orders.

Only an antisemitic Nazi would try to deny that antisemitism does not exist on a worldwide scale.

Side: Yes.

Well, tonight we'll see a flying pig zooming across a blue moon.

No, not in the slightest. Judaism is a very damaging religion which demands other people give it special treatment. It's what the Church of Scientology wishes it could be.

You might think I'm talking shit, but anti-Christians and anti-Muslims are just called atheists. Anti-Jews are frequently jailed. In Europe at least.

Side: No.

While I respect many of your other opinions, Burrito, I must respectfully disagree. Historically, Anti-Jews have been much more destructive towards Judaism (ie the KKK) than atheists have been towards Christians.

And yes, with all due respect, I do think you're talking shit.

Side: Yes.

Thank you, and likewise.

I don't disagree that the KKK are not fond of Jews, but I do not accept that Jews are more persecuted by the KKK than either blacks or Muslims. The KKK are renowned for their views about blacks rather than Jews. To be honest I think your response plays right into my argument that Jews demand special treatment.

The Ku Klux Klan (/ˌkuː klʌks ˈklæn, ˌkjuː-/),[a] commonly called the KKK or the Klan, is an American white supremacist hate group whose primary targets are African Americans, as well as Jews, immigrants, leftists, homosexuals, and, until recently, Catholics.[9]

So, according to Wiki, there are five other groups targeted by the KKK, including Catholics.

Side: Yes.

Also, it is worth mentioning that (some) Jews have been a destructive force themselves:-
