No need to share...

One of history’s premium ironies is that the Jews themselves laid the foundations of their own long-term persecution, for who was it exactly who first came up with the idea that there was only one God and only one religion that could be True?

Having done that, they largely passed on the need to convert everyone else. Pretty much anyone could have pointed out to them that this was going to be a ticking time bomb.

All that needed to happen was for the notion of special revelation to become yoked to the Roman (and later Arab, Marxist-Leninist etc.) obsession with world domination and then everyone was fucked, but especially the Jews.

And the slightest hint that they might like to persecute their way out of this trap of perpetual persecution that they’d got themselves into was only ever going to make things a whole lot worse.

"The totalitarian attempt at global conquest and total domination has been the destructive way out of all impasses. Its victory may coincide with the destruction of humanity; wherever it has ruled, it has begun to destroy the essence of man." > Hannah Arendt
