The "anti-Jedi sentiment" entry on Wook is pretty interesting. From what I understand, the Jedi's secrecy and (perceived or real) isolationism led to such sentiment. People fear what they don't know, and hate what they fear. Then of course Palpatine played on that by using them as generals, making them into "Palpatine's secret police." I think the PPs are correct in that it was Palpatine who sold the public the idea that the Jedi were enemies, and at that time Palpatine was very popular. There were massive cheers when he declared himself Emperor--but massive cheers 23 years later at his demise. I think some anti-Jedi sentiment would exist along the lines of what Owen Lars said about their being "crazy wizards" but I don't think they would be considered "enemies" of the New Republic. I'm interested to see how the Jedi operate in the sequels, whether we see Luke running the Order or OCs, and how many tenets of the Old Order they keep.
