How is calling someone "that Jew bastard" a good example for what you're arguing? "Jew" in this case is used as a derogatory term independent of and irrelevant to the person's beliefs; it is not an attack on the persons' Jewish beliefs themselves, but implies that having those beliefs makes them a bad person. That is an excellent example of how many people try to disguise their ad Hominems.
