Sean, What a good point. I think so much of this division comes down to lack engagement and contextual knowledge. It seems in our culture that Jews are more vilified than other groups because people want to signal they are on the right side of the issue. Unlike when other groups are attacked, there is often little accountability. I think this is because (in America at least) of perceived success of Jewish people in our culture. Like you, I think the fraught, politically-motivated attacks of this religious minority might be tied to the continual acknowledgement of the Jews as God’s chosen people.
