Bitterly angry enemies of the Jews come not from a place of pride but of prejudice

In the 1940s, when the Jews in America woke up to the unspeakable horror that their very own relatives or fellow-Jews in Germany, Poland, Vichy France and all over Europe were being savagely, grotesquely, sadistically murdered by Hitler, aided and gleefully abetted by the Muslim Brotherhood…sound familiar?, and that—worse to them—their hero FDR knew about Hitler’s slaughtering rampage but failed to take a moment from puffing tobacco through his pretentious cigarette holder to save them, they went into a period of sustained mourning.
While Jews of every political persuasion found it impossible to wrap their minds around the consciousness-anesthetizing number of six-million men, women, children, toddlers, babies and infants—half of the miniscule Jewish population of the entire world—being wrenched out of their homes in the middle of the night, brutally hurtled into suffocating cattle cars, and transported to camps where they were systematically starved, beaten, and worked to near-death, and then sent to “showers” of Xyklon-B gas that choked the lives out of them, the few Jews who remained knew something that the rest of the anti-Semitic world seemed not to have absorbed:
That throughout their lengthy but besieged history Jews had been through this kind of maniacally obsessed Jew-hatred before, a history that Professor of Linguistics George Jochnowitz painstakingly elaborates upon in The Universality Of Anti-Semitism—Normalizing Hate. That their enemies, including vast realms like the Roman, Babylonian, Persian and Ottoman Empires, among many others, always perished while the Jews always survived. That the remaining Jews in any conflict, no matter how small their numbers, would prevail.
