Legend has it, there is no evidence however, that the ancient Egyptians granted special treatment to the Jews. The Romans granted Jews in Palestine special religious status and special laws. Jews have lobbied for special status and special laws ever since. Hate Laws are laws designed for the security of the Chosen People. It is amazing that they were denied in Hungary, a country which spent most of WW2 allied with the Axis Powers.

... someone who publicly insults a Jew could be found guilty of a misdemeanor and sentenced to up to two years of imprisonment.

Bwahaha! They want to imprison people because Jews are aholes and people don't like them. Well, too bad. They deserve a lot more than a public insult.

Listen to this.

"When the Romans conquered Jerusalem in 70 CE, they displayed their power in full. They stopped for all time Jewish sacrifice in the Temple, the sole place of Jewish sacrifice previously legal in the empire. They profaned the Temple area by sacrificing to their gods. They stationed in Jerusalem the Tenth Legion with the provocative emblem of a pig on its banner. The gold vessels of the Temple were rehoused in Rome in a specially built Temple of Peace - peace, by implication, from the Jews, currently seen as hostile and pernicious.

The Jews, unlike any religious minority in the ancient world, were taxed for their religion. Vespasian ordered the voluntary annual tax of two denarii which every Jew paid for the upkeep of the Temple to be obligatory payment to the Temple of Jupiter in Rome. (As Pontifex Maximus of the Temple, Vespasian kept the tax for himself.) An imperial government department was built specially for this purpose. In Roman eyes, this tax - which remained the same despite inflation - was symbolic of the victory of the gods of Rome over that of the Jews: Yahweh's revenues were now legally Jupiter's. Apostates were exempt. In this way, apostasy from Judaism was encouraged and conversion to Judaism was discouraged. The fiscus Judaicus helped to define Jewish identity in the Roman empire: it marked Jews out to be a people exploited and degraded. The Romans tried to collect the tax not just from native Jews but also from converts and secret Jews. Suetonius as a boys saw an old man stripped in court to find out if he was circumcised (Domitian 12)."
