Oh, what a tangled web we weave
When first we practise to deceive!
~ Walter Scott, Marmion
If you study the Medieval European history of usury, you will understand that European nobility under their sponsor, the Holy Roman Empire, are responsible for creating the Jewish moneylenders and then Antisemitism as a means of cancelling out the bad debts they had created with Jewish moneylenders. The nobility borrowed to fund the Christian Crusades. So what's worse - playing people like pawns and killing them when you've finished with them OR trying to make a living in the only trade your government will permit you to work?
Excerpts for reading...
Charlemagne's expansion of the Frankish empire around 800, including northern Italy and Rome, brought on a brief period of stability and unity in Francia. This created opportunities for Jewish merchants to settle again north of the Alps. Charlemagne granted the Jews freedoms similar to those once enjoyed under the Roman Empire. In addition, Jews from southern Italy, fleeing religious persecution, began to move into central Europe. Returning to Frankish lands, many Jewish merchants took on occupations in finance and commerce, including money lending, or usury. (Church legislation banned Christians from lending money in exchange for interest.) From Charlemagne's time to the present, Jewish life in northern Europe is well documented. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashkenazi_Jews
Henry restored many of the old financial institutions of his grandfather Henry I and undertook further, long-lasting reforms of the way that the English currency was managed; one result was a long-term increase in the supply of money within the economy, leading to a growth both in trade and inflation. Medieval rulers such as Henry enjoyed various sources of income during the 12th century. Some of their income came from their private estates, called demesne; other income came from imposing legal fines and arbitrary amercements, and from taxes, which at this time were raised only intermittently. Kings could also raise funds by borrowing; Henry did this far more than earlier English rulers, initially through moneylenders in Rouen, turning later in his reign to Jewish and Flemish lenders. Ready cash was increasingly important to rulers during the 12th century to enable the use of mercenary forces and the construction of stone castles, both vital to successful military campaigns.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_II_of_England
During the 12th century, Rouen was probably the site of a Jewish yeshiva. At that time, about 6,000 Jews lived in the town, comprising about 20% of the total population. In addition, there were a large number of Jews scattered about another 100 communities in Normandy. The well-preserved remains of a medieval Jewish building, that could be a yeshiva, were discovered in the 1970s under the Rouen Law Courts.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rouen
As the Jews were ostracized from most professions by local rulers, the church and the guilds, they were pushed into marginal occupations considered socially inferior, such as tax and rent collecting and moneylending. Natural tensions between creditors and debtors were added to social, political, religious, and economic strains.
...financial oppression of Jews tended to occur in areas where they were most disliked, and if Jews reacted by concentrating on moneylending to non-Jews, the unpopularity—and so, of course, the pressure—would increase. Thus the Jews became an element in a vicious circle. The Christians, on the basis of the Biblical rulings, condemned interest-taking absolutely, and from 1179 those who practiced it were excommunicated. Catholic autocrats frequently imposed the harshest financial burdens on the Jews. The Jews reacted by engaging in the one business where Christian laws actually discriminated in their favor, and became identified with the hated trade of moneylending.
In England, the departing Crusaders were joined by crowds of debtors in the massacres of Jews at London and York in 1189–1190. In 1275, Edward I of England passed the Statute of Jewry which made usury illegal and linked it to blasphemy, in order to seize the assets of the violators. Scores of English Jews were arrested, 300 were hanged and their property went to the Crown. In 1290, all Jews were expelled from England, and allowed to take only what they could carry; the rest of their property became the Crown's. The usury was cited as the official reason for the Edict of Expulsion. However, not all Jews were expelled: it was easy to convert to Christianity and thereby avoid expulsion. Many other crowned heads of Europe expelled the Jews, although again conversion to Christianity meant that you were no longer considered a Jew (see the articles on marranos or crypto-Judaism).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usury
At the start of the 13th century, the Jewish community began to flourish. One of the main reasons for the prosperity was the recognition by Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor that the Jews were a separate ethnic and religious group, and were not bound to the laws that targeted the Christian population. Following this assumption, in July 1244, the emperor published a bill of rights for Jews, which encouraged them to work in the money lending business, encouraged the immigration of additional Jews to the area, and promised protection and autonomous rights, such as the right to judge themselves and the right to collect taxes. This bill of rights affected other kingdoms in Europe such as Hungary, Poland, Lithuania, Silesia and Bohemia, which had a high concentrations of Jews.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Jews_in_Austria
The first member of the family who was known to use the name "Rothschild" was Izaak Elchanan Rothschild, born in 1577. The name means "Red Shield" in German. The family's ascent to international prominence began in 1744, with the birth of Mayer Amschel Rothschild in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. He was the son of Amschel Moses Rothschild, (born circa 1710), a money changer who had traded with the Prince of Hesse. Born in the "Judengasse", the ghetto of Frankfurt, Mayer developed a finance house and spread his empire by installing each of his five sons in the five main European financial centres to conduct business. The Rothschild coat of arms contains a clenched fist with five arrows symbolising the five dynasties established by the five sons of Mayer Rothschild, in a reference to Psalm 127: "Like arrows in the hands of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth." The family motto appears below the shield: Concordia, Integritas, Industria (Unity, Integrity, Industry).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rothschild_family
Since my last comments to this thread are mysteriously disappearing, I'll add them right here:
+Theresa St. Amant You're probably a Jewess. History of your people goes back to your patriarch Cain and his pre-Adamite wife, and to his descendant Naamah, the pre-Adamite mother of Cush (father of Nimrod) and Canaan, patriarch of the Canaanites. See Eustace Mullins' The Curse of Canaan: https://archive.org/details/EustaceMullins-TheCurseOfCanaanADemonologyOfHistory1987
Theresa St. Amant18:12
+TheRapeOfJustice I'll tell you what. You find the scriptural references to the Curse of Canaan and tell me what the Bible or other ancient text say and we'll talk more. I don't think it would be fair of me to debate with you if you are only capable of parroting what modern authors have said.
I actually have been through a few pages of Eustace Mullins' 'Curse of Canaan'. In what I have read so far, I have found several errors. One of the first errors I see he made was in the etymology of 'cannibal'.
"from Spanish canibal, caribal "a savage, cannibal," from Caniba, Christopher Columbus' rendition of the Caribs' name for themselves"http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=cannibal
Did you ever think to look that or anything else up to confirm the reliability of your sources? Or are you content to rely on what you think is 'probably' true. I'd say that's misplaced faith.
+Theresa St. Amant The Jewish author Michael Bradley claims that the last Neanderthals died in the same area where the Khazars came from before they called themselves Ashkenazi Jews. Acc to Bradley the Khazars are descendants from Neanderthals who interbred with modern humans. Must read for Jews should be Michael Bradley's Chosen People From The Caucasus, http://www.amazon.com/CHOSEN-CAUCASUS-paperback-MICHAEL-BRADLEY/dp/0883781743/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1431382969&sr=8-1&keywords=Michael+Bradley+Chosen+People+of+the+Caucasus
Theresa St. Amant19:08
Do you do any of your own research? For instance, review data and white papers from universities, hmmm? What are Michael Bradley's credentials as a biologist or archaeologist? I can't find much on him.
I did find this, but it points a finger at westerners generally and not specifically Khazars: Iceman Inheritance : Prehistoric Sources of Western Man's Racism, Sexism and Aggressionhttp://www.amazon.com/Iceman-Inheritance-Prehistoric-Sources-Aggression/dp/1879831007
There isn't a population outside of Sub-Saharan Africa who isn't carrying Neanderthal DNA in their autosomal gene. There are also South Asians carrying the genes of Denisovan. I've given you a few leads, but I expect you to do your own research.
If you're hoping to find evidence for some kind of white supremacist ideology, don't bother. Do you know anything about DNA haplogroups? Perhaps you should have looked into that before you jumped headlong into the bigotry and racism propaganda. Put into the context of Mullins' fable, Shem and Japheth are muts and Ham is the purebred.
All Non-Africans Part Neanderthal, Genetics Confirmhttp://news.discovery.com/human/genetics-neanderthal-110718.htm
"About 2 per cent of many people's genomes today is made up of Neanderthal DNA, a result of interbreeding between the two species that can be seen in everyone except people from sub-Saharan Africa."http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn26435-thoroughly-modern-humans-interbred-with-neanderthals.html#.VVExdY7F98E
