Because they (as a whole) are originally God's chosen people; Israel is His land; and the world (the secular world) is at enmity with God; it's always been that way; just natural that they'd hate the people of a Nation that, still to this day, symbolizes God's choice and mercy.
The world doesn't hate the Jewish people. Do you?
No Beelzedad. I love the Jewish people and pray for them constantly, as I pray for the rest of the worlds people. It just seems that they are accused of causing all the worlds problems.
Well then, it would appear that since both you and I don't hate the Jews, the world therefore does not hate the Jews.
Not sure where you would get that notion, but in fact, we can find a number of reasons for the worlds problems. Religions, for example, are at the top of that chart, yours included.
Because they are rich and powerful. Been to Israel and I loved the country and the people.
Perpetual hell of the Palestinian refugee camps.

I've always thought it wasn't hate, but jealousy. The Israelites were the chosen ones, then the christians were supposed to be grafted on. I figured they felt like the red headed step child. So they hated the jews because they were the natural firstborn. Then the muslims laid claim to abraham and they wanted to be god's favorite so they change the story and make the servant's son the favored child. It's all a form of sibling rivalry. Somebody referenced the secular world, but I don't think outside of the three monotheistic religions anyone cares.
I don't believe the world hates Jews. I don't agree with a lot that Israel has done as many others don't either, but hate the Jewish people? Never.
It was only Hitler who hated the Jewish people. Maybe some people dislike the Jews, but hate is an extreme word.
"Why Does The World Hate The Jewish People?"
Maybe not so much Jews per-say, but Israel is what most people seem to have a problem.
Of course it's Israel!
You think peole hate all Americans, or is it the things our gvt does in our name??
If you hate what Hitler did to the Jews and others, you must hate what Israel is doing to the Palestinians!!!
But every time you say it...you get branded. And it's not by accident either, it's by design.
I used to feel sorry for the Palestinians, but I don't see that they are any more interested in peace than anyone else. It's hard to maintain any level of sympathy for any group in that conflict. When it seemed that Israel tried to soften their stand they received nothing but grief at every turn. Both sides need to accept the fact that the right thing to do is find a fair and equitable solution. That is an attempt to find a middle ground by both sides.
No such thing as a chosen people or chosen land. People in the sense were around millions of years before the jews and there are so many more beautiful and special places on the planet than that wasteland they call a country. Just ego, arrogance and stone age ignorance at work.
Well, as an American mutt I don't really understand the concept of an ancestral home, but I do realize that my inability to consider any plot of land as a part of my heritage makes me somewhat unique. Whether you believe in a god or not I think everyone believes in the jewish diaspora. I'm not saying anyone has more rights than the other, or that the formation of the nation of Israel wasn't without injustice. But it exists. It cannot be dissolved. It's time to move forward.
Think the Nazis thought they were the chosen people. Didn't they call themselves the master race. Sanctioned by God or sanctioned by genetics, what's the difference?
"jewish diaspora." I believe in the American Indian diaspora.
