Reply To: Have you been exposed to harmful antisemitic tropes about Jewish control over finances or foreign policy? After participating in this course, how would you go about responding to these tropes if you encounter them?

This response perhaps isn’t up to the philosophical par these essay questions are seeking, but global loathing of Jewish peoples continues to mystify me.

Jewish people seem to integrate and assimilate very well, they generally fit in aesthetically in western Nations, they don’t even generally find themselves in spots that are politically scandalous. There’s no abnormal amount of crime, or government support, or anything. Perhaps I’m
misinformed, perhaps it’s my 21st century upbringing, but I cannot find a reason that anti-semitism is so common outside the Middle East.
