Of course, the Semitic Jews were just as discriminatory and racist as the European Christians were, even more so: the conflict of interest between these two groups have existed ever since Semitic Jews killed Christ.
Basically, where the Jews lived in Europe among the European Christians, they refused to assimilate: they considered themselves a special people, God's Chosen, and believed they were legally, socially, morally, religiously, and biologically superior to the European Christians. They always had the "us" versus "them" mentality, and believed that Semitic Jews as a group should extract as much wealth as they could from European Christians without any concern for ethics; that is, Jewish law dictated that the moral guidlines of how a Jew should interact with another Jew was different from the guidlines of how a Jew should interact with a Gentile. In other words, the Talmud delineates a non-Jew as less than human, as dictated by the Jewish God: "The Jews shall rule over the rest of mankind," and so forth, source: http://www.kevinmacdonald.net/books.htm
Well, the European Christians obviously noticed this behavior, and this caused them to have anti-Jewish sentiments, often errupting in pogroms.
So then, who is to blame, the European Christians or the Semitic Jews?
