Antisemitism has a long history, going back thousands of years. Prejudice against Judaism goes back to the ancient world when the Jewish people lived among polytheists who believed in many gods and early Christians who distanced themselves from Judaism.

Antisemitism may be described as prejudice, hostility, and discrimination against Jewish people. The term, antisemitism, appeared for the first time in the 19th century. At that time people were classified into different races and Europeans held the view that the white race was superior to other races. The “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” published in Russia in 1905 was the most widely distributed antisemitic publication of modern times and contained horrendous lies about the Jewish people.
