Why do Jews hate America?

Falsity of the Question
The assumption made in the question is false. For the majority of the history of the United States, most Jews thought (and continue to think) fondly of the United States as it was one of the few nations in the history of the World to treat Jews (from a political perspective) as equals.

Equality of Jews in United States History
Jews in the United States were never subject to humiliating taxes, occupational prohibitions, religious restrictions, ghettoization, incursions on freedom of speech or assembly, nor were they ever evicted from any part of the United States at any time. Therefore, most Jews respect and think highly of the United States.

Notable Acts Promoting Jewish Citizenship and Equality in the USA
A notable story about how old American respect is for the Jews is that Governor Stuyvesant of New Amsterdam (the Dutch Colony that became New York) permitted the Jews of New Amsterdam to keep and bear arms, a permission allowed to Jews in no other part of the world and entrusted the Jews of the city with a rotation on the wall protecting the city from Native American Tribes. This acceptance of Jews as equals has been a long part of American history and something that Jews have immense respect for.

Similarly, George Washington's Letter to the Hebrew Congregation of Newport in response to Moses Seixas' Letter from Congregation Yeshuat Israel affirmed that from the moment of the US Constitution's enacting Jews would be equal citizens in the United States, entitled to all rights of the Non-Jewish majority.

Now this is not to say that there was never discrimination against Jews in the United States, but that such discrimination was not led by the government. Anti-Semitism in the United States has almost exclusively been a social phenomenon and the government of the United States has almost consistently treated Jews (as a class) well.

Apathetic Minority
There is a small minority of Jews who do not care about America because they have little consideration for any non-Jewish State, but there is no animosity between them and America. They are only apathetic. (It would be similar to asking "the average American" about how he feels about Malawi; he wouldn't know anything and would not care to learn anything.)

That is a false and anti-Semitic question. I'm sure you are unaware that the following famous song, which brings tears to the eyes of any patriotic American, was written by a prominent Jew: "God bless America,

Land that I love,

Stand beside her and guide her

Thru the night with a light from Above.


From the mountains, to the prairies,

To the oceans white with foam,

God bless America,

My home, sweet home."


America has treated Jews better than any other country of our worldwide, 2000 year exile, and Jews are deeply grateful for that.
