Why are people talking about goblins being Jewish and why have I seen more comments about it in the past two weeks than I have in the past two decades?

Thank you for providing some additional context on the film location! I wasn't sure whether to include it at all as I didn't find a specific source linking it to the game (since the OP wasn't asking about Rowling or the movie portrayals, but the dialogue around the game specifically), but decided to mention it as it has come up in the general coverage and controversy. I think this is a great example of how discussions around this are complicated by the intersections of the original source material and the author, the filmmakers and people contributing to story changes and visual portrayal in the movies, and the elements specific to the game and its designers/developers.
