Van Zile's new book exposes a devastating reality: Christian anti-Semitism has returned. Today it is an entrenched narrative in mainline Protestant churches. During the second world war, Van Zile writes, "respectable Christians marched two-thirds of Europe’s Jews and millions of other victims to their deaths." The preaching and teaching that justified such conduct has returned to synods, pulpits and Sunday Schools in the United States of America.
According to Katanacho, an Arab Israeli citizen, “Jewishness in Israel has become an obsession for Israeli Jews and a nightmare for Palestinians because of its extremist views and determination to create a world filled with masters and slaves. ...The Jewish dream has become a mantra for the hatred of one’s neighbor.”
