Question and answer
Before World War I and II, anti-Semitism was more prevalent than it is today. Does anti-Semitism still exist? In what forms
Anti-Semitism still exists today but it's not very prevalent. In the year 2000, there were over 1600 anti-semitic incidents, but towards the year 2009, there was only around 700 reported. [ [ Jewish people populate over 5 million people in the U.S., so comparing that to the number 700, it's not a large percent. ]

In what forms does Anti-Semitism still exists
Weegy: I think Diana Pinto's analysis, as well as that of Peter Sichrovsky and Barry Kosmin, hit the nail squarely on the head. [ I also think that it is shocking- -and telling- that a large percentage of the commentators, and even the analysts questioned wanted to blame European anti-semitism on the JEWISH community's support of Israel, as if that justifies anything! Are Jews supposed to sign over their rights in order to not be discriminated against and attacked, in Europe's collective mind? Does such logic as that make sense to ANYONE with an IQ higher than his foot size? -It's not just that attacks on Jews are up, it's that European governments do very little to protect their Jewish populations. In very tragic cases-such as that of Ilan Halimi (1), governments will dismiss any possibility that their religious identity was involved- in spite of overwhelming evidence- with tragic consequences for the victims. Not content to have allowed Ilan to have died a horrible death because they refused to consider that he was the victim of a hate crime, the French government proceeded to give the men who tortured him for weeks before he died obscenely light crimes ridiculously more lenient than the minimum punishments recommended by the prosecution (2). Thousands of European Jews have petitioned the US for asylum, and thousands more have made Aliyah because Europeans won't protect them. -People like Sinister b*tch that ''antisemitism'', as a charge, is used to silence criticism of Israel. I have never seen that happen in a debate format or in any published text that I have read. I think that people like HIM use that charge- and beat it to death- to silence those who call a spade a spade when antisemites criticize Israel due to their ideologies. I have only called someone an antisemite when I had the evidence to do so, and I think the overwhelming Jewish/pro-Israeli population does so. ] (More)

Before World War I and II, anti-Semitism was more prevalent than it is today. Does anti-Semitism still exist? In what forms?
Weegy: One would have thought that Jew-hatred would have died out with the Nazi death camps. [ The dreadful images of the survivors showed that Jews were not dangerous or powerful. Despite this, in the late 20th and early 21st century there are still people preaching anti-Jewish hatred. Jews are still often the scapegoats when things go wrong in society. It is still sadly true that synagogues all over the world require security guards, because the threat of attack is real. However criticism of Israel cannot be regarded as anti-semitism so long as it is ‘similar to that levelled against any other country.’ ] (More)

Some sources of prejudice or discrimination from Roman Catholics
Weegy: Anti-Catholicism is a generic term for discrimination, hostility or prejudice directed against Catholicism, and especially against the Catholic Church, its clergy or its adherents. [ The term also applies to the religious persecution of Catholics or to a "religious orientation opposed to Catholicism."[6] In the Early Modern period, the Catholic Church struggled to maintain its traditional religious and political role in the face of rising secular powers in Europe. As a result of these struggles, there arose a hostile attitude towards the considerable political, social, spiritual and religious power of the Pope of the day and the clergy in the form of "anti-clericalism". To this was added the epochal crisis over the church's spiritual authority brought about by the Protestant Reformation, giving rise to sectarian conflict and a new wave of anti-Catholicism. ] User: Does what you’ve learned about Roman Catholics you understand it? In what ways? Weegy: Definitely yes , learning the background of the ethnic group gives a foresight of its origin and the different practices and cultural traits it has. The learning experience will be through socializing with the people belonging to the ethnic group. (More)
