Review by Alexander D.
Excerpted, in shortened form, from Dr. I devoted much of my book, Our Hands Are Stained with Blood, to the subject of anti-Semitism, and on several occasions I have delivered lectures on the question of why anti-Semitism exists.
Out of all the hatreds in the world, anti-Semitism is unique. My challenge was simple: I have a supernatural, biblical explanation for the phenomenon of anti-Semitism, one which even includes the devil himself—not the most popular theory on a university campus!
In fact, the best theory that anyone offered was that, perhaps, anti-Semitism was due to aliens! What then makes anti-Semitism such a unique hatred? First, it is the longest hatred of all time, dating back at least 2, years and even longer if the book of Esther is included.
What other hatred has endured some twenty-three centuries and survived a genocide of 6, of its victims in its twenty-third century of existence only to find itself still intact and rich in potential for many years of life?
How can this be? These words penned twenty-five centuries ago, still ring true in the hearts of many anti-Semites today: Why has this hatred and fear of the Jews persisted for so long? The king should know that the Jews who came up to us from you have gone to Jerusalem and are rebuilding that rebellious and wicked city.
They are restoring the walls and repairing the foundations. Furthermore, the king should know that if this city is built and its walls are restored, no more taxes, tribute or duty will be paid, and the royal revenues will suffer.
Now since we are under obligation to the palace and it is not proper for us to see the king dishonored, we are sending this message to inform the king, so that a search may be made in the archives of your predecessors. In these records you will find that this city is a rebellious city, troublesome to kings and provinces, a place of rebellion from ancient times.
That is why this city was destroyed. Second, anti-Semitism is the most widespread hatred of all time. The group, called the Raelians, is a UFO religion, led by its founder Rael, who claims to have been enlightened by aliens. This is the literal claim: As of this writing, the site was available in more than twenty-five languages.
Why this widespread hatred of the Jews? Third, anti-Semitism is the most vicious hatred of all time, and both the incredible violence and the depth of animosity against the Jews defy rational explanation.Paul Axelrod pulls this scholarship together in a concise synthesis of the key issues and events that shaped the evolution of schooling, from its early stages in to the eve ofthe First World War.
Furthermore, as the title hints, he explores, with a wonderfully wry wit, a divergence between the promise of schooling and its actuality. 10 Ratings · 1 Review Between and , Canadian society and its school systems were forged, populated, expanded and reformed.

The Promise of Schooling explores the links between social and educational change in this complex and dynamic period.3/5. Because I write about illness and medical research and the professionals who try to help those with medical problems, I find myself wanting to recommend links that don't really fit into the other categories on this site, or even into the concept of the site.
In The Promise of Schooling, Axelrod's views can be clearly seen, but are crafted in such a way that they do not seem predominant.
The inferences he draws out of the facts, and the conclusions that were made, were clear and precise because of his excellent descriptive ability.5/5(9).
