I've just been reading a bit about Venice, and the Jews were blamed for Venice losing a war, the advent of Syphilis, the black death, leprosy, and all this in only fifty years. Not to mention all the various blood libels and accusations of canibalism that seem like perennial lies. I am no friend of Israel, but there's no group that has suffered as much as the Jews have due to gentile stupidity and malice. Then again, it's heart-breaking to see the same logics those medieval mobs used against the Jews re-branded and turned against the people who live in much gentler ghettos today.
