I am going somewhere in a few minutes and I do not have the time to answer now. The answer is long--I will answer when I get back.
Voted : The Jews had to make themselves a people apart in order to fulfill their obligation to God
I'm back and here is my personal opinion on why the Jew are so hated.
When the Jews became monotheistic, no other country was monotheistic. One of the main thriving industries of every country was the making and selling of their religions paraphernalia, which consisted of multiple Gods and Goddesses. Wherever the Jewish people went and their religion took hold, this important industry would phase out, bringing financial ruin in this once-thriving area. The presence of Jewishness not only despoiled the source of income of everywhere, it despoiled the beloved religious beliefs and practices of everywhere. There was also no friendly incorporating the Jews into their ways of life because the Jews were instructed by God to remain a people apart.
Thus Jews were feared as being strange, bringing bad luck, having the evil eye, and being of the devil and so on. This rage against the Jews never left, not even many thousands of years later and even through so many people have now become monotheistic.
When God asked the Jews if they would be God's chosen people, God told the Jews that what they would be chosen for was to be hated and abused and rejected forever, telling them that God's love would be sufficient for them. They chose to live within the narrow strictures of God's precepts and to reject being popular with their surrounding neighbors. Most people horribly misinterpret what being Gods chosen people meant.
so is there proof that thet are the chosen or is this just hearsay? Unlike other people i love history no matter what race good or bad, i believe the more we learn of others the better and instead of being part of the problem i rather seek a solution. I cant understand how one nation or race that has suffered can turn around and do it to another, when will we learn. Please if anybody could suggest some good books let me know. There is always a reason why people turn out the way they do sometimes we just need to listen. I may not agree with what people say or do but i respect people thats a start.
^There is an enlightening book called "Why the Jews?"
God did not chose the Jews to be His chosen people. My pastor said God went to many different groups before the Jews and all but the Jews rejected the horrors that God told them being chosen would bring them. The Jews accepted the slaughter of them that was required of being chosen.
Because they are tighter than a Scotsman's ass.

The Jews got a bad rap. If you're a Christian (or a Muslim) and you believe in divinity, then you must believe the Jews are bad?
Anyone who believes blindly is a fool. Follow your heart, and be smart. Don't believe for the sake of acceptance, lest you be damned.

Judaism is a race. 9/11 was a Jewish plot. Jews killed Hitler. Christian children blood. Jews are race. Gimme some life........
Christianity hates jews because they killed the messiah and they tend to stick together and thrive. Many are lenders and during lean times the jews in europe always had more than the rest.
The muslims hate the jews because they have taken land they have no right too.
Given to them by the very people who just wanted shut of the jews and didn't have the stomach to execute them like the nazi's did.
But I suspect the main reason people dislike jews right now is because of the ottrocities commited by israel against muslims aided by the americans.
An earlier ballot brought up chinese industrialisation in america and the knee jerk reaction from most of you was truly sickening and yet you simply cannot understand why palestinians resent israel.
I mean come on, how stupid?
I have to disagree with the preception that Christians hate Jews because they killed the Massiah. This is a common fallacy among many 'blind faith' adherents and non christians alike.
In accordance to the word and will of God, the 'Father', commanded that the Christ, his 'Son' must be sacraficed for the atonement of all sin on behalf of humanity. So we can debate the responsiblity for his death and blame the Jews, some blame Pontius Pilate since he held authority to pardon the accused and commute his sentence. others blame the Romans (pagans) as a whole, and still others claim Christ himself is to blame since he knowningly and openly commited Blaphamy in violation of Jewish law. A crime he knew was punishable by death.
And when he was offered several opportunities to spare his own life by simply retracting from his crime, he refused, binding his own destiny.
However, they're all wrong.
God himself engineered the plan for the preservation of humankind and commanded his death. The method and the means are irrelavent.
Second, the right of the Jews to occupy the Holy Land is governed by internation law, and it was not given to them. The Jewish populas legally purchased the largely uninhabitable regions of rangelands abandoned by their Arab counterparts many years before the establishment of the Israeli State. There just came a point when the Israelis outnumbered the palestinians and began encroaching into more populated areas.
You are spot on when you point out that the Jews historically are very resourceful and tend to flourish while those around them regress.
This fact in and of itself makes them a target of envy and jealousy by the have nots, who then must rationalize and justify their unreasonable aversion to create some fault with the Jew. Envy and jealousy are two of the most depraved and sinister of emotions.
Neither the Christian sect as a whole nor the United States bear any anamosity towards Israel or the Jewish people and any otrocities committed by Israel are not jointly US/Israel operations, nor are they sanctioned or condoned by the US.
Israel possesses the right to self govern and granted, the US primarialy favors Israel in part because they are a strategic ally to both the UN and the US in maintaining some sense of peace and security in the mid east in the interest of global energy, and for both regional and international economic stability.
But there's a lot at stake and no one knows better than Great Britain that "Heavy is the Head that wears the Crown".
The US administerates a significant portion of the UN's international policies and enforcement required to assure these objectives are constituted, and levy some magnatude of equality and justice across the international community.
The Palistinians, as well as Arab and Muslim terrorists and supporters aren't doing themselves any favor from aggressive defiance and arbitrary mass murders, yet we don't interfere anymore in suppressing this abroad than we do in bridaling Isael's discriminate behaviors, until it impacts American interests directly.
I wish you could refrain from classifying all Americans into one group based on the acts of the slightly larger visible majority. Not everyone in America is deaf, dumb and blind, and the overall reaction of an under educated population isn't accreditation of the silent protagonists within.
In a Nutshell, the Palestinian Arabs resent Israel because Israel became the dominate authority in the region. Like selfish, ingracious children throwing a tamtrum because they're told 'No' they can't have what they want without concessions, they spitefully sabotage their own effort.
