    This is not a political statement either. It is known that some europeans especially during the Middle Ages converted to Judaism particularly in what is known Eastern Europe and some of them converted for economical reasons. Remember that there were the two empires controling the ancient world. one was Islamic and the other was christian, and jews were accepted to do business between the two empires without constrains.that why some europeans converted to Judaism. A NY rabbai said in an interviw on ABC or CBS few years ago that in every 7 marraiges he had 3 of them were mixed. I know palestinian families who were jews 200 or 300 years ago and they converted to Islam as well. the key word is PEACE, EQUALITY, and HARMONY.
