Re: Is Israel Next?

Jack added:

I don't know about the first pogrom but the first blood libel was an English invention, in the 1280's.
It's somewhat archane but look in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. Read the description of the Prioress; a gentle church woman, a loving, kind hearted soul, unwilling to hurt the least of God's creatures, etc. Then read the Prioress' Tale. It is the original blood libel, little Hugh of (?) Kent, I believe. The happy ending is when all the Jews get massacred. I do not know if the author was awary of the irony. I suspect he was but he gave no indication of it.
