Historian Paul Johnson has said, “What strikes the historian surveying anti-Semitism worldwide over more than two millennia, is its fundamental irrationality. 
It seems to make no sense, any more than malaria or meningitis make sense.” 

Anti-Semitism goes by many names; bigotry, discrimination, prejudice, intolerance. 
Most often it falls in that broad category of ‘racism’, which has been defined as prejudice, discrimination or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior. 

Historically, victims of racism have often been poor, those who as a collective were unable to defend themselves against oppressors. Such hatred has insidiously infected populations all over the globe, resulting in persecution and death to countless individuals whose ‘crime’ was that of being different.
