I don't think this is just a jewish thing. Anything that anybody does in this
world is gonna make somebody hate them for it. Everyone here knows that there is
plenty for the world to hate me for that has nothing to do with my familial
relationship with jews.

This seems to have some consonance. It jives with how many of the more
radical/fundamentalist religious people frequently try to deny that
Yahweh/God/Allah are all the same deity. If Yahweh isn't God, then its easier
for them to hate Jews while still loving their own God.
