Almost all ancient civilizations were extremely tribalistic and racist. It's not unique to Jews in the slightest.

Not racist, ethnocentric.

No, ancient peoples constantly attacked and enslaved each other for no reason other than not being them. And they were big on genetic determinism. Guilt was inherited, honor was inherited, royalty was inherited, your bloodline basically defined you back then. Jews were actually one of the few who had any sort of restraint whatsoever on this type of behavior. But they were full of it regardless.

restraint

Didn't their fake god instruct the jews to utterly destroy an entire people including women, children and even animals? Then rob them of all their wealth? What restraint?!

Samuel 15:3

Now go and strike Amalek and completely destroy everything that they have; do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’”

Jewish restraint. 🙄

Just like literally every other nation in the world in those times. It was a common practice.

including women, children and even animals

As if human males are worthless.

Then why isn't their an ages old hatred of those others? Jewish behavior is completely unique, parasitic and promoted by their own religion.

Because all the other ancient religions disappeared long ago. Only the Abrahamic faiths survive, and Christianity spread across the world too quickly to become linked with a people. But historically those practices were the norm, and Jews were actually pretty soft for their world. For example, "an eye for an eye" was actually intended to decrease vengeance.

Whoever wrote this is an ignorant moron. The problem with Judaism is the Talmud which promotes parasitic behavior. The Old Testament itself is great. It supports ethnocentrism, and all ethnicities should be ethnocentric for their own preservation.
