In the mid-12th century several vicious stories were spread accusing Jews of murdering Christian children. Such slanders, now known as the ‘Blood Libel’, strengthened anti-Semitic sentiment in England.

Crazy how so many cultures fabricated this same exact story!

TRAPPED IN THE TOWER

Inside the tower, trust between the Jews and the keeper broke down, and when he left the tower on other business, they refused to allow him back in. They had now challenged the king’s authority, and troops joined the mob outside, where they were pelted with stones from the castle walls by the besieged Jews.

Friday 16 March coincided with Shabbat Hagadol, the ‘Great Sabbath’ before the Jewish festival of Pesach or Passover. According to several accounts, the Jews realised that they could not hold out against their attackers, and rather than waiting to be killed or forcibly baptised, decided to meet death together. The father of each family killed his wife and children, before taking his own life.

Just before their deaths, they also set fire to the possessions they had brought with them; this fire consumed the timber tower. It is not clear how many Jews were present – estimates range from 20 to 40 families, and a later account in Hebrew suggests about 150 people.

150 Jewish people are massacred a fucking thousand years ago, for reasons that appear to be at least partially motivated by clearing debts, and people still are talking about it a THOUSAND YEARS LATER.

"The planting of daffodils – whose six-pointed shape echoes the Star of David – on the tower mound provides an annual memorial around the anniversary of the massacre. A plaque commemorating the tragedy was installed at the foot of the tower in 1978."

Can you find an example of any other religion or race who would continue to remember 150 people killed a thousand years ago?

The jews were loaning money and charging interest, at the time it was illegal for christians to charge interest. The christians got pissed, not surprisingly, at the bullshit double standard and ended the jews.

Interesting that they chose death as a preferable option as to converting to the religion of country they lived in. They didn't even have to renounce the Torah, they just had to accept the New Testament; still, death was preferable.

These guys were really devoted to loaning money.

When you read it all, it's even more hilarious. The Jews took over the tower and kicked the king's guard out.
