The Jewish people have been a threat to every gov't who wanted complete control because they are traditionally the most deeply educated people in Western Civ. Catholics (traditionally being the second best educated people since the dawn of Catholic education born in those oh so terrible dark ages) those who do not compromise their faith (sadly, usually more than half turn tail at the first sign of real trouble) have been forced to fill in the blanks when they start running out of Jews. (Although American Asians are catching up to both of us!) A deep education is terrifying to any ambitious dictator, king, secretary general, fuhrer, queen, president etc. BO, being very ambitious, treats us both like trash.
