What countries hate the Jews?

There should be two ways for a nation to be considered a "Jew-hating nation", (1) nations where 75% of more of the general population harbor Anti-Semitic views, or (2) nations where the government actively condones or supports Anti-Semitism or espouses strongly Anti-Semitic views. Countries of both types exist.

(1) Anti-Semitic Populations: According to the ADL Global 100 survey, the following 16 countries had populations where at least 75% harbored Anti-Semitic Views: Palestine, Iraq, Yemen, Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Jordan, Morocco, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, Oman, and Egypt. Additionally, the survey did not include the following 6 countries which would likely also have populations where at least 75% harbor Anti-Semitic views: Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Mauritania, Sudan, and Somalia. It is worth noting that we see no similar characteristics or surveys concerning the prevalence of hatred towards other ethnic or religious groups with the singular exception of the Romani/Gypsies.

Also note that this survey and other similar surveys ask questions about Anti-Semitism only and do not ask questions that could be construed as Anti-Zionist, but not necessarily Anti-Semitic. Particularly Anti-Semitic views include, among others: (1) that Jews exert an strong amount of control or direction on politics and economics, (2) that Jews murder Non-Jews in order to gain access to their blood - usually for ritualistic purposes, (3) that Jews are disloyal/treacherous/deceiving to Non-Jews, (4) Holocaust denialism or "revisionism", and (5) that Jews provoke or cause most of the world's wars.

(2) Anti-Semitic Governments: There are several countries whose governments have actively fanned the flames of the Anti-Semitism and have espoused Anti-Semitic doctrines as part of government policy. The most prominent today is Saudi Arabia, which has a number of Anti-Semitic laws and policies such as: (1) making it virtually impossible for a Jewish tourist to come to Saudi Arabia, (2) legally banning Jews from living or working in Saudi Arabia, (3) confiscating any Jewish religious paraphernalia, (4) paying for the printing and disseminating Jewish-hate literature such as the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and Mein Kampf (although, surprisingly the Arabic version Kefaahi - كفاحي leaves out Hitler's half-chapter where he explains that Arabs are sub-humans that he respects because he sees Islam as a violent, conquering ideology that he feels like Germans should emulate), (5) funding mosques and imams in other countries to promote a Wahhabist agenda which includes, among other things, promoting Anti-Semitism.

Another Anti-Semitic government is that of the Islamic Republic of Iran, which actually hosted a Holocaust Denial Conference. While there is debate about whether the number of Jews who were killed is 5.4 million up to 7.5 million, there is no legitimate debate that at least 5.4 million were killed, and the conference sought to minimize the number by orders of magnitude, i.e. 100,000 or so, or deny it completely. This minimization of the deaths or complete obfuscation is Holocaust Denial. Iran has also provided direct funding to Hezbollah, whose founder Hassan Nasrallah is famously quoted as having said that he would prefer that all of the Jews came to Israel so that he would not have to hunt them down all over the world.

Another Anti-Semitic leader is the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Mahathir Mohamad of Malaysia who argued at the Organization of the Islamic Conference that Jews "cunningly get others to die on their behalf" and defended this statement against righteous international scrutiny.

Note again, that, with the exception of the Romani/Gypsies and possibly the Baha'i in Iran, no ethnic or religious group is targeted by various different governments in such a systematic way.

There are many anti-Semitic attacks in the U.S. and Europe. The "politically correct" modern disguise for hatred of Jews is to mask it as hatred for Israel, also called BDS.

The following countries have no diplomatic ties with Israel. Their hatred ranges from low or ambivalent, to very high. Iran is by far the worst.
Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bhutan (see footnote), Bolivia, Brunei, Chad, Comoros, Cuba, Djibouti, Guinea, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Nicaragua, Niger, North Korea, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, Yemen.Many European countries, despite their ties with Israel, are heavily biased against it.

Countries against Jews

Germany was against them during the holocaust and Europe blamed them for the Bubonic (black) plague.

Answer 2:

All of them, because the whole world is anti-semitist. Anti-semitism is a hate of Jews based on prejudice and stereotypes. I'm not talking about everyone individually; I'm talking about everyone collectively.

answer 3

The middle east countries such as Jordan, Iran, Syria, all want to see Israel demolished and claim it for there home land. Many middle east countries are against the Jews. Muslims claim Israel as their holy land making it their 3rd holiest site and the Jews claim it as there one and only, and is holy to them. Many Muslim countries despise the Jews for being in Israel.

Many white European countries are not anti-Semitic like they use to be but in the past you would say they were. Most parts of Western and Eastern Europe were anti-semtic for various reasons, mainly because the Jews were blamed for Jesus death and then became major escapegoats and easy to blame after that. Today, these European nations are more impartial to the Jews.

In the past there have been countries that trumped up hate towards the Jews but the past 50 years have been an improvement. For example, in the US the Klu Klux Klan was a white power movement and very strong in the South which condemned minority races and the Jewish religion along with other religions. The white power movement in the last 50 years had died out due to Lyndon b Johnson, Martin Luther king and etc.

answer 4

The Jews do receive a lot of hate but they are not hated as like the last 2000 years and playing viticrat only brings up a new type of of hate. Saying the whole world is anti-Semitic just brings a victimized state of mind which is easily hated. Can you think of anyone who hasn't been hated?
