After the horrors of the Holocaust, you'd think that Europe had learned its lesson regarding the hatred for Jews, but that is far from the case. But, one nation ranks even higher in Jew hatred than the nations of Europe and even Muslim nations. I wouldn't have thought that was possible, but in an international survey, Japan could only come up with 3% support for Israel. Isn't that interesting? The same nation that experienced the deadly 2011 earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disaster, which is considered the most expensive natural disaster in world history.
I can't help but think of the warning in Genesis 12:3 regarding the treatment of the Jewish people, "I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you." Perhaps, the Japanese people should take a look at the Bible.
Satan is alive and well on planet Earth. His two favorite groups to hate on are both those extra-special to the Lord: His beloved believers, the Christians, and His Chosen People, the Jews. How appropriate that Satan has manipulated those living in spiritual darkness to hate these two groups.

Poll: Israel as Unpopular as Terror States Iran, North Korea
Daniel recalls that during his school years, “the epithet ‘you Jew’” has been “as common as faen” (Norway’s F-word). But in all those years, he’s only heard teachers react to “you Jew” a total of five times. “People have said ‘you Jew’ in the classroom and the teacher has heard it, but do they do anything about it? No. Even though the teacher knows that I’m a Jew and people have said ‘you Jew’ so that both I and the teacher could hear it, the teacher never does anything other than to tell them to stop it.” Kids who say faen in class have their names taken down – but never kids who say “you Jew.”
None of what Esperson and Daniel are describing, needless to say, is confined to just Denmark and Norway. This, alas, is Western Europe today: a part of the world that was once the very definition of civilization and enlightenment, but that, having exposed in the last century its capacity for irrational, murderous barbarism, now seems inexorably drawn, like an addict unable to resist his drug, back into that vile darkness.
