It means that antisemitism is a fact of life. (It's not necessarily a cause). Literally means Esau hates Jacob

This doesn't sound good. Who, why, what or where does not matter. Can you HelpMe out?
It's a deeper concept but the essence is, a mechanism from God to prevent assimilation.

Therefore, we wont complain when not being kissed, but we still will when being bitten.

It's more than just a fact of life. We believe that God created the world with esav sonei es yackov built in, it's an inherent part of the breiah, not a passive thing that we must unfortunately put up with.

Was being very serious. A bunch of people holding signs go home patting themselves on the back how they helped fight/end (fill in the blank) While politicians stood there paying lip service. Meanwhile thugs will be thugs & they donít really scare off from a march.

Seriously, though, I have read that an adam gadol( I don't know who) said that had Europe's Jews reacted to the Nazis as the Jews of Eretz Yisrael did on the threat of the Nazi invasion to Eretz Yisrael, they could've been spared as well. Food for thought.

I heard an adom gadol say that the Nazi's were a punishment for having smartphones.

Of course that is what he meant, but what does that have to do with marches?
