The new-old Jew hatred
Advertisements [?]
The malignant use of the expression chosen Jews is recurring in the latest attacks on Israel made by secular intellectuals, archbishops, mainstream journalists and European politicians.

Such vilification inspired historical waves of violence, like the pogroms, the expulsion of the Spanish Jews and Martin Luthers demonology (the founder of Protestantism argued that the Jews were no longer the chosen people but instead the Devils people.)

Modern-day Jews are not Gods chosen people, the head of Egypts Coptic Orthodox Church, Pope Shenouda III, declared recently in a meeting with former US President Jimmy Carter. Do not believe their claims that they are Gods chosen people, because it is not true.

It is no longer only Syria that aired a movie against the Chosen Jews or the former prime minister of Malaysia, Mohammad Mahathir, who warned that the Jews must never think they are the chosen people. The obsession for this issue now widely appears in the latest indictments of Israel as an apartheid state and in the legal campaigns against the Law of Return.,7340,L-4137444,00.html
