Sorry, young fellow, but Jesus never taught peace, justice, or other value judgments. The words interpreted by Luther were meant to attack the political and moral degeneracy of the Catholic Church. Anti Semitism was ingrained in the teachings of Luther and the writers of the Jesus fables for political purposes,the former to overthrow the Catholic hierarchy, the latter to establish an anti-Roman political answer to the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem.
The stories of Jesus followed those of the Jewish prophets to identify a messiah who would destroy Rome and rebuild the Temple.
When that didn't come to pass, a new interpretation was given to a new generation and a new audience denying the Jewish commandments by inviting Greeks and Romans to bring their idols into a religious system offering one God and an afterlife to escape the subjugation of Roman authority.
Does this make you angry with the Jews? You should be angry with the religious hierarchy that kept people in fear and ruled with hypocrisy for over two millennia.

Psalms 63:1-11 say's Oh God,thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee,my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land,where no water is; to see thy power and thy glory,so as I have seen thee in the santuary, because thy lovingkindness is better than life,my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live; I will lift up my hands in thy name. My soul shall be satified with marrow and fatness: and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: when I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches. Because thou has been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejioce. My soul follow hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me. But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts the earth. they shall fall by the sword, they shall be a portion for foxes. But the king shall rejoice in God:everyone that sweareth by him shall glory: But the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stop!
We cannot confuse man with God, man's heart is continually filled with evil and hatred. God on the other hand has always been good and full of love to say the least. We live in a world that gives labels, such as President, Soldior, Civilian, Father, Mother, all the way up the to human, and those of us that have these labels Walk in them with out much efford at all, because it becomes apart of one's mind, body, and soul. What about Christianity? I believe this should'nt be catagorized as a so called label, it to me is a lifestyle or the only way to eternal life. Although many attach themselves with this way of living, they dont live the way. For them its just a "label". Jesus Is Love,He died on the cross to prove it with His Life!
