The last time I witnessed hate up close was when one of the students I taught at Ohr Eliyahu Jewish Academy openly disparaged my husband for being Filipino. I guess hate is everywhere.

A few days ago I read the comments posted on an article about the likelyhood the US taking military action against Iran's nuclear weapons program. There were a bunch of really nasty anti-Semites railing against how everything was Israel's fault. I posted the following comment.

"Despite all it's problems I still believe in America. Our corporations sometimes wield to much power, put at the end of day the people still elect the government. You screaming anti-semites are evil traitors to everything that this country has stood for over the past two and a half centuries. You are modern day nazi's. The same mindless monsters that killed sixty million people two generations ago. You are the dark side and we will never let you win."

Tagger? Just because someone grabs a can of paint and writes hateful stuff on a wall doesn't make him a tagger? Please don't drop terms you know nothing about!

In recent years we have had more immigrants coming in from the Middle East who want to bring the Middle East to the West, you have a-holes like Farrakhan running around mouthing off + you have the old-guard typical Neo-Nazis. But this is the US. As individuals, we have the right to bear arms. If someone threatens you here, you can shoot them dead if they attack you. I would tell anyone who experiences an anti-semetic attack to shoot the f***er

I personally think hate against African Americans have been around this country the most. African Amerians should not forget what Dr. Marthin L. King sole has done for all the world. His skin may be brown but his sole is as bright as mine.

God bless Dr. king's sole

I have been reading the posts on Yahoo. There is so much anti-semitism it is chilling. It is posted on issues that have nothing to do with Jews, Israel, Judaism. For 2000 years it only goes into temporary remission for short periods of time.

Here we go again. It's the thirties re-visiited. Even after the end of the 2nd world war, with hundreds of thousands of our soldiers dead, defending us against Hitler and his Nazi scourge, anti-semitism remained only too evident.

Let's see. I do believe that we're essentially a Judaeo-Christian nation, so it's doubtful that these hate crimes against the Jews come from the Jews themselves. That leaves the other half of the religious equation, as the suspected source of these crimes. What really grabs me, is that these hateful acts are fundamentally carried out in the name of the Prince of Peace, who brought to all of us, regardless of our religious beliefs the revelation, "Thou shall love thy neighbor as you would love yourselves." He brought the whole understanding and practice of LOVE to the world, even the perspective that God is a loving God, not necessarily vengeful and fearsome.

You would think that that these hateful villans would have absorbed at least a microscopic piece of his exhalted teachings. But twisted minds, subvert these life affirming gifts, and instead worship a monster, who possessed a similar twisted mentality, who'll only be remembered for having created a living hell on Earth, where human life held absolutely no value

These hate mongers cannot possibly have souls, and their hearts have turned to stone. Inside they are cowards, incomplete men lacking in character and courage. The courage to face their own fears, and low self worth . No one who does these vicious acts can possibly have any semblance of self esteem. They're to be pitied as miserably poor examples of what it means to be a human being. They are destined to wind up in the trash bin of history as did the Nazis - Infamey is the lowest form of fame.

Is so silly for the head of the ADL to say that Jews are discriminated 3 times more than others - silly fool, look at the Arizona. They just institutionalized discrimination against Hispanics. I guess this doesn't count as a hate crime.

In our area, you have all these children who live in the Valley and go to school in the la Brea area. At the end of each school day, we neighbors can barely get in or out of garages because, mothers block the alley with their cars. Is anti semitism? Not

Is anyone surprised? Israel continues to bully Palestine daily in absolutely disgusting ways, jewfros are as obnoxious and clown-looking as ever, and the Hollywood jews continue to wow nobody with their lack of creativity, constant reliance on sequels, re-hashes of old storylines, comicbooks, and videogames. I'm not asking for a "Kristallnacht," but the control over the media by the jews is pissing off a lot of well-informed people.

One idiot who sprayed the graffiti does not speak for thousands of residents. But it doesn't help that websites like Google show anti-Semitic websites as the top search results for the word "Jew".

First, read up on what the ADL is. Next, an increase in two years of 49 incidents like graffiti and insignias carved into cars is hardly a basis can be accounted for by a handful of individuals ... hardly a basis for a national report that Anti-semitism is on the rise. Blacks, Mexicans and especially the Muslims have it much worse. Can the ADL put out statistics on how many incidents of graffiti have been committed against Arabs in California during the same period? Probably a whole lot more than 49.
