Nothing new under the sun. There has been anti-semitism in the world for a long time.
Unfortunately, prejudice is found among and toward people worldwide, among and toward adherents of religions worldwide, among and toward various ethnic groups worldwide.
It is sad but since the Fall of Man in the Garden of Eden sin has existed among us. And sin will continue to exist for as long as this present earth shall last.
Yes, unfortunately, anti-Semitism has been around longer than nearly any prejudice. People thought it was reined in when Germany was conquered, but unfortunately, it seems to be spreading throughout Europe and even here in the USA once again.
I think it is safe to say that the sin of prejudice predates the founding of the Jewish state around 1500 B.C. by many millenia.
I think it's interesting to count the great empires that thought they had the "final solution" to the Jews.
How many of them still exist?
Anti-semetism was around when God told Abraham that the covenants and promises would come through Isaac, not Ishmael
And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him. (Genesis 17:19)
