    When you say 'lie' it does not make a case. It shows you to be a zealot in your defence of tired UNFOUNDED arguments that the Jews were exiled by the Romans. The arguments you present were Christian arguments from the early church, later adopted by proto zionists in the heady days of nationalism of the 19thC.There was no large scale exile. No mention of it in Roman records.It would have been unique in roman era, so it is no surprise. Only the leading families and zealots were either massacred or exiled. That would have been all. (A few tens of thousands at most).These could not and did not mushroom into the millions of ashkenazis. There are no genetic studies that have proved what you claim, nor do linguistic studies prove your claim. Crusades. Clue: The majority pop of Jerusalem was actually Karaites at the time of the crusades. Jewish population decline was due in part to conversion, to muslim, after the Arab conquest and to other demographics effecting the whole population of Palestine. It is also a fact that there were several times tha number of Jews already living outside of Judah in the time of the first revolt. Possibly up to 8 times more! So there was no need for a roman exile to be invented in order to explain the large numbers of Jews outside of Judah. There was actually a bigger community in Egypt as in pre revolt Judea. Many romans were even converted Jews before Christianity took hold. All these outlier communities almost certainly never even visited Judea. You are simply restating 19thC fictions which were based on Christian [early church]claims in order to support the church claims that the Jews were punished for their rejection of Christ.
