Maybe, but Christianity has traditionally had a huge problem with
Judaism, starting in New Testament times: 'Let his blood be on us and on
our children'. What better basis for antisemitism could you have than that?
Let me delurk for a moment. Since the mainstream Christian view is that
Christ's blood is on all of us, not just the few Jewish people of New
Testament times who are recorded as saying that, it seems like a very
poor basis for antisemitism.
Paul, or somebody writing in his name, wrote: 'Jews, who killed the Lord
Jesus and the prophets and also drove us out'. (1 THESSALONIANS 2:14-15)
'As a part of Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), the Roman Catholic
Church under Pope Paul VI issued the declaration Nostra Aetate ("In Our
Time"), which in part repudiated the traditional belief in the
collective Jewish guilt for the Crucifixion.'
Luther too was violent in his tirades against the Jews, so it was by no
means just the Catholics.
I wasn't suggesting that it hasn't happened, I'm just questioning your
judgement that that particular event should be a good basis for
antisemitism. It isn't.
