I do not beleive that all Arabs are poisoned by the devil. The ones who hate Jews are poisoned by other Arabs. Religion doesn't really have anything to do with it. It's hate, pure and simple. Islamic extremists pervert Islam to support their own power and keep control.

There is no way to prove or to disprove this statement.  It is simply a matter of faith.  It is possible that all evil (and particularly great evils) come from the devil while all good comes from God.  However, anyone who claims to know whether that is true (as a certain fact) is wrong.  We cannot obtain any objective proof as to the source of evil.

The previous post, in my mind, does not address this issue.  It says that Arabs who hate Jews are poisoned by other Arabs.  But why do those other Arabs hate Jews?  We can't know whether their hatred is in any way caused by supernatural forces.

To those who have an exclusively spiritual world view, your thesis about the devil being the instigator of hatred is a true world view. To a spiritual person, it is actually a liberating view because it objectifies the problems between people and groups of people by eliminating blame from any and all individuals and groups while assigning blame to an external influential power. It also suggests the ultimate world view goal of all peoples taking a charitable and accepting view of all other peoples.
