MacDonald meticulously takes you through the history of the Jews and provides quotes from notables and facts of that time, both pro and con. At various times Jews have been treated harshly. Why would anyone NOT want to try to understand how and why this happened, in hopes that it would never happen again?
To simply say he is at times quoting some people who said less than flattering things about certain Jews at certain times, is to bury your head in the sand.
I can only say, read the book and draw your own conclusions. Don't let someone else tell you how you should think.
MacDonald covers the complaints of anti-Semites against Jews in various ages such as the Middle Ages which he views as another age in which Christianity and the church turned towards collectivism to combat the political and economic power of the Jews, especially the Marranos, those Jews in Spain especially, who were pressured into converting to Christianity as a way of forcing them to assimilate. It didn't work. The Marranos were mostly crypto-Jews that professed Christianity outwardly, but still married other Marrano Jews and practiced Jewish rituals secretly and generally shunned Christian rituals when they could. This generally confirmed Judaism as a religion based on keeping the purity of the Jewish race. Jews became upwardly mobile in this period within the church and civil society, but still were not truly Christian.Read more ›
