>>673192 Most Christians did back then. Luther hated them especially because he identified with them as fellow victims of the Catholic Church, but once his conception of Christianity became state approved, he saw them as nothing more than dissidents.
Don't forget that his brand of Christianity put a much more prominent role in the Old Testament than contemporary Catholicism did. When the Jewish communities of the various German princedoms rejected it anyway and said that he wasn't understanding it, he got pissed.

>>673185 everyone disliked jews more or less. They were seen as secretive insular group that would migrate into christian lands. They had a reputation for being cheap moneylenders who would screw over a gentile for a dime. Rabbinic Judaism was much different than Second Temple Judaism of Jesus's time or today's Reform Judaism. It focused on exclusivity to the point where non-jews were seen as barely human.
>>673277 yep, to make matters worse. Jews were only allowed to charge interest to gentiles, as committing usury against fellow jews was a sin. So if jewish merchants accumulated wealth within a town, it's not hard to see why local peasants would despise them.
