    Well, me and my wife shared an apartment with a British graduate student in biology. Relations were correct though not warm, and we managed well, each respecting the privacy of the other. At the end, while we were about to leave she asked us "why did you killed Jesus?" and "killed" was personally, physically, me. We began to tell her Jesus was a Jew, and she stopped us and said she learned Jesus was a Christian living in the Vatican, murdered by the Jews "living in Europe like today". Where do you think such ideas come, if not from school? Anecdotal stories aside, the "realpolitik" behind the story is obvious: emperor Constantinus decide to embrace Christianity, and early Christians were actually Jews - the largest part of Judaism. The problem was Jesus was crucified, together with many other Jews, by the Roman empire. The solution Constantinus found was implemented in the Nicea conference 325 AD. The solution itself was, accepting the crucifixion factual by the Romans, but depicting Pontius Pilatus (who actually was "unkind" even to his family) as weak and falling under the will of the Jews to kill Jesus. This politically convenient accusation was the main cause of the Holocaust. If Europe would give up its profound deicide accusation of the Jews, we in Israel could also end the farce of "Jewish Democratic state". But two generations after the Holocaust, this is still to soon.
