IX.6: What Are the Origins of Anti-Semitism?

Origins of Anti-Semitism

Jews are called Semites because, according to the Bible, they descended from Shem, one of Noah’s three sons.

There are many groups and individuals who believe that Jewish people control the economic systems of the developed world. Conspiracy theories declare that they are planning to dominate mankind. For example, both white (KKK) and black (Nation of Islam) supremacists propagate these views. Some of them use statistics to back up this bias. For instance, they say that while less than two percent of Americans are Jewish, one out of three of America’s Federal Reserve Chairmen have been Jews. This might sound ominous, but an examination of history can easily explain this fact. So what are the origins of anti-Semitism?

It is true that the Federal Reserve is a private corporation in which corporate banks own all the stock. And despite its name, it is only partially controlled by the federal government. (Federal Reserve)

A disproportionate number of Jewish families have large investment holdings in many of the banks who own stock in the Federal Reserve. So it is important to first note that these investments involve those particular families only. And they are a tiny portion of the world’s Jewish people. In fact, many Jews, especially in Russia, live in abject poverty.

A few Jewish families gained a large share of the banking market as the result of Bible-based financial limitations placed on Christians in Medieval Europe.

This is the most important of the origins of anti-Semitism. That is, there were periods in which both Catholic and Protestant authorities in Europe limited their members’ ability to loan money with interest, also called “usury”. (Usury)

These limitations were based on various and changing interpretations of the meaning of Exodus 22:25 (NIV):

If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not treat it like a business deal; charge no interest.

During some periods, various church authorities used this verse to forbid the charging of any interest at all on loans. In others, they limited rates or imposed other conditions.(Usury)

But in all cases, the limits only affected Christians. That is, Jews were exempt from all Christian church authority. Eventually, as governments became more secular, these limitations on Christians were relaxed, but not before a number of Jewish families had established themselves firmly in the banking industry. After this time, many non-Jews entered the banking industry. And the fact that two thirds of our Federal Reserve chairmen have been non-Jews (twice the number of Jews) proves that the Federal Reserve is not a Jewish monopoly. But some supremacist groups continue to claim that to be true.

Another driving force among the origins of anti-Semitism is a document known as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

The “Protocols” is supposedly a description of a Jewish plan for world domination. Examination has shown it to be plagiarized from various older sources, many of which were not even anti-Semitic in purpose. Most scholars believe that someone created it as a hoax in Russia around 1900. (The Protocols of the Elders of Zion)

Zion is the hill on which the city of Jerusalem sits, and the term “Zionist” describes Jews who pushed to re-establish the nation of Israel before that became reality in 1948. (Zionism)

Adolph Hitler’s National Socialist (Nazi) party in Germany disseminated The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. But even American leaders like Henry Ford, who brought the automobile to the masses, publicized it. Also, Ford’s close friend, the aviator Charles Lindbergh, agreed with many of Ford’s anti-Semitic views. Some people accused both men of being Nazi sympathizers, though in fact they were trying to keep America out of World War II. Based on their belief in the “Protocols”, they claimed that the war was being instigated by Jewish financiers. (Henry Ford) (Charles Lindbergh)

But as I’ve shown above, all Jews are not financiers and all financiers are not Jews. So even if it is true that financiers have too much power and use it to manipulate governments, it is a broadly human problem, not a particularly Jewish problem.

Among the origins of anti-Semitism is the fact that Jews and Muslims have fought over Palestine for two thousand years.

Consequently, some Muslim schools teach that Jews eat Muslim children. And it is no coincidence that Hitler’s Nazi Germany developed close ties with the Muslim nation known at that time as “Persia”. Later, Persia’s leader officially changed the nation’s name to “Iran” which is Persian for “land of the Aryans”. (Iran (word))

Of course, “Aryan” is the name Hitler gave to his supposedly superior German race in his book, Mein Kampf. In that book, he described his plan to expand Germany and to stop the supposed Jewish plan for world domination. (Mein Kampf)
