Achilles, I do not consider anti-semitism as a priviledge granted to the christians, on the contrary.But,alas, some christians consider it as a part of christianity.From your message I understood that it was (of cause!)evil jews who imposed their religious views on poor hellenes.
Was I mistaken?
I also think that christians are supposed to be loving and kind to their neighbours, but it's not always so...

: Thanks for pointing that out Maya, however, I never said that Jews refer to Christ as their King.
: christian traditions-which you consider to be jewish- are not recognized by Judaism, and are as foreing to the Jews as to you.The only common thing is the Bible.
: It’s true that most practicing Jews do not accept the Christian traditions however the Christian faith was greatly influenced by Judaism. There are more similarities between the two religions than there are differences. The worship of a monotheistic deity, the recognition of The Old Testament, (which by the way Jews base the crux of their culture on), similar rituals, prophets, commandments, Hebrew script, geological locations where biblical events took place.
: You proclaim yourself as a follower of ancient hellenic tradition,nothing wrong with it, it's your right.
: Where have I announced that I am a follower of the ancient traditions?
: I simply started a commentary in this forum on a subject matter I found interesting.
: But I never heared that ancient Hellenes were also anti-semites,it was always a christian priviledge ...
: How am I an Anti-Semite Maya? By what reasoning did you come to that conclusion?
: Are you saying that being Anti-Semitic is a special right granted to the Christians, and if so, that Christians are privileged to act hostile towards the Jews?
: I thought Christians were supposed to be loving and kind to their neighbors.
: Just my thoughts,
