Yes, especially after they declared war on Germany in 1933. See link below.


The notion that the Jews declared war on Germany is Nazi Propaganda. That headline from the Daily Express is the only "evidence" that neo-Nazis can produce for this lie. (The rest of the front page below is faked).

See related question for information on persecution in Germany, 1933-39.

Yes. See, for example, persecutioin under the Roman Emperor Hadrianic, when Rome, under Hadrian, killed an estimated half-million Jews and enslaved many (quite probably another half million). Also consider the Crusades, when most of the Jewish communities of the Rhineland were destroyed, driving Jewish refugees east into Poland. Or consider the Bubonic Plague, when Jewish communities across Europe were murdered or expelled for causing the plague. Or consider the expulsion of Jews from England in 1290. Or consider the expulsion of Jews from Spain in 1492. Or consider the expulsion of Jews from Lutheran lands in Germany during the Reformation, which drove more Jews into Poland. Or consider the Khmelnytsky Uprising in Poland, which decimated the Jewish community in what was then Polish Ukrane. Or consider the pogroms, anti-Jewish rioting encouraged by the Russian governments between 1880 and 1920 that drove millions of Jews to flee to Western Europe and the Americas?

Why are Jews against discrimination?

This question presupposes that Jews have a single opinion and that opinion is against discrimination. Firstly, as a group, Jews take pride in forming their own opinions, at least on matters not explicitly codified in their religious texts. As a consequence, you will find Jews with very differing opinions about various forms of discrimination. To answer your question more directly, Jews have suffered discrimination for so much of their history that themes of persecution are a part of their culture (the festival of Hanukkah is an example). It is in their self interest for discrimination to be reduced. Beyond that, they (speaking generally) don't want others to suffer as they have. The subject of discrimination in Israel and the occupied territories (Gaza, West Bank) is the subject of another topic.
