The Jews did not kill Jesus. The Jewish leaders were instrumental
in getting Him executed, but they did not crucify Him.

Jews were looked down on until they were accepted members of the community.

To the best of my knowledge none of the major leaders of the Revolution were Jewish.

At all times in public by Jews, in Nazi-occupied Europe. The Star

No, they didn't.
Germany's economic troubles after WWI were partly due to the damage

No, there was no Jewish "war" against Germany. One only hears about this "war" in Nazi propaganda.The notion that "the Jews" [collectively or worldwide] 'waged [or declared] war on Germany' is utterly preposterous. "The Jews" had no soldiers.

That is a question of faith, not history. But there are some
people, especially Biblical Christians, who believe that is true.
That is actually a line from the Old Testament, or Hebrew
Scriptures. It was applying to the nation of Israel, not

Jacob was the father of the Israelites (Jews). His sons were the
ancestors of the twelve tribes. Esau (Edom) is the traditional
ancestor of the Edomites. The Israelites and Edomites were frequent

"Mc" is a Scottish prefix (meaning 'from', I believe). The word

The lyrics as taught to my mother by a Jewish sorority sister in
the late 1950s are:
Marching forth with roses,
Join the ranks of Moses,
Fight! Fight! Fight for Palestine!
Haters of ham and gravy,
Join the Hebrew navy,
Fight! Fight! Fight for Palestine!

This is a really strange question with several answers.
First of all, to clarify: the Jews did not kill Jesus. The
Catholic Church even issued an apology for that one.
Second, Jesus was never a king. He was a rabbi, a teacher.
Third, you don't have to be Jewish to hate Nazis.
One of the ways was through informers, who were rewarded for reporting Jews in hiding. The Gestopo found citizens. They asked them to turn in any Jews they knew of.
