The Nameless War



1215  --  Magna Carta

1255  --  Ritual murder of St. Hugh of Lincoln. Henry III personally ordered trial and 18 culprits were executed -- all Jews.

1275  --  The Statute of Jewry passed; confined Jews to certain areas, forbade usury to them and also ownership of land and contact with the people: compelled them to wear a yellow badge.

1290  --  Edward I banished the Jews from England.

1657  --  Oliver Cromwell, having been financed by Manasseh Ben Israel and Moses Carvajal, allows Jews to return to England, though order of banishment never rescinded by Parliament.

[Note: and it has been asserted that the Jews never really left England, but merely went 'underground' until the King was assassinated. That is certainly more plausable than expecting that all Jews LEFT the country. Especially given that Cromwell was a pawn for the Jews, and NOT the King's man. - j]

1689  --  Amsterdam Jews financed the rebellion against King James II. The chief of these -- Solomon Medina -- follows William of Orange to England.

1694  --  The Bank of "England" set up and the National Debt instituted, securing for the Jew moneylenders a first charge on the taxes of England for interest on their loans. The right to print money transferred from the Crown to this "Bank of England".

1707  --  Economic and political union forced upon Scotland against the vote of every country and borough; the national debt foisted upon Scotland, and the royal mint in Edinburgh suppressed.
