A useful resource:

Jews explain why they are our enemies:

THE GIFTS OF THE JEWS: How a Tribe of Desert Nomads Changed the Way Everyone Thinks and Feels
The Jews started it all - and by "it" I mean so many of the things we care about, the underlying values that make all of us, Jew and Gentile, believer and atheist, tick.  Without the Jews, we would see the world with different eyes, hear with different ears, even feel with different feelings.  And not only would our sensorium, the screen through which we receive the world, be different: we would think with a different mind, interpret all our experience differently, draw different conclusions from the things that befall us.  And we would set  a different course for our lives.

By "we" I mean the usual "we" of late-twentieth-century writing: the people of the Western world, whose peculiar but vital mentality has come to infect every culture on earth, so that, in a startlingly precise sense, all humanity is now willy-nilly caught up in this "we."  For better or worse, the role of the West in humanity's history is singular.  Because of this, the role of the Jews, the inventors of Western culture, is also singular: there is simply no one else remotely like them; theirs is a unique vocation. 
Our history is replete with examples of those who have refused to see what the Jews are really about, who - through intellectual blindness, racial chauvinism, xenophobia, or just plain evil - have been unable to give this oddball tribe, this raggle-taggle band, this race of wanderers who are the progenitors of the Western world, their due.  Indeed, at the end of this bloodiest of centuries, we can all too easily look back on scenes of unthinkable horror perpetrated by those who would do anything rather than give the Jews their due.
The first of these new perspectives was a narrative of purpose and progress.

... History, in this sense - open, purposive, contingent in liberty - is not a Greek or Roman idea.  It is Hebraic; its source springs from the Biblical historians and prophets.  Probably most of the humans who had ever lived before the arrival of Judaism on the world stage never even heard of "progress."  The literature of Greece and Rome looks backwards, to golden ages of the past; the movement of time is circular.

... Second, Hebrew metaphysics held that everything in creation in all its workings and purposes is intelligible - suffused with reason, not absurd - in the eyes of a divine and loving Creator, Who created from nothing everything that is, and saw that it was good ...  The Creator is independent of the world; therefore, the world can be looked into, investigated, and experimented with without infringing on His divinity.
Nowadays, even secular people interpret history in the light of progress, rights, and liberty. ... the Gentiles learned the essential outlook of the Hebrews: that the Creator gave humans a special place among all other creatures
This sequence of related conceptions - that time had a beginning and is measured for progress (or decline) by God's standards; that everything in the world is intelligible, and that to inquire, invent, and discover is an impulse of faith as well as of reason ... and that history is to be grasped as the drama of human liberty

Progressivism, empiricism and anthropecentrism. It is our duty to destroy all three.
