Thats not the primary reason for most of the historical persecutions of jews not even for most of the european persecution of jews. It mainly stems from early Christians not wanting to be grouped in with the rest of the jews (at the time they were consider a sect of Judaism) and not be persecuted by the Romans. So early Christians tried to make Pontius Pilate seems as though he was not responsible for Jesus's crucifixion and trying their best to shift the blame to Jewish leaders or the Jewish people as a whole. There are many different reason for Pontius Pilate being the one responsible for Jesus's death a few of them being that one crucifixion was a Roman style of execution if jews were going to execute some one it wouldn't be crucifixion, two Pontius Pilate was well documented as being harsh and largely doing what he wanted to do and would not really care what any jews wished him to do, and third the Messiah, at least during Jesus's time, was meant to be a military leader leading the jews out of oppression aka the Romans. Also Jesus wasn't the only or the first to claim to be the Messiah at the time quite a few came up and caused trouble for the Romans. Anyway as a result of Jews being seen as the killer of the Christians Messiah they were and continue, in some areas, to be seen as evil or against God. Presenting a pretty good reason for devoted believers in Christianity to do the things that they did.

In those times, usery (charging interest on loans) was banned in Christianity. However, people realized that this was an excellent way to make money, so they had Jews do it since they were, obviously, not Christians. Thus Jews tended to become bankers and general handlers of money.

And it's a great way to stay in shape

Not 100% right. The Catholic church banned usury, that is the lending of money at interest. The early church fathers, defined usury as loans with excessively high interest. Their definition of usury was and loan with an interest of more than 12%. Remember the economic situation was very different, 12% might not have been a lot back then. It sure as hell is now though.

>The jews have historically always been the money lenders who would extend the poor lines of credit and then charge huge interest rates basically guaranteeing the lendee in debt forever.

The feudal law in most countries prevented them from farming and/or practising crafts tbh fam.

There is/was no law that prevented them from doing that.
They just get expelled a bunch because they practice usury

Like in Spain. There were many craftsmen who were Jews that also got expelled.

Sounds to me like the people who fall "victim" to Jews are simply idiots who, if they didn't lose their money to the curly-haired demons, would lose it to someone else.

You know who I hate? Mechanics. They over-charge people and straight up lie about what's wrong with your car so they can charge you more. Let's get rid of Italians because of this.

Well I meme, christians weren't allowed to transfer money or something so they had to have jews do it for them. Prolly wrong.

Shit, I knew I was doing something wrong.

Seriously though, the back of my house is about 40 feet from an embankment, and the hole I was digging was half way between the embankment and the house. While I'd gotten clearance to dig there (so as not to hit any pipes or whatnot), the surveyor hadn't realized I was just digging to relieve stress. The hole weakened the embankment, which caused it to shift an imperceptible amount. The cracks in my walls, however, were quite perceptible.

Sometimes when I feel like talking to strangers is a really weird and creepy thing to do, I go on youtube and watch videos such as Andrew Hales.

He does all kinds of socially awkward things, and most girls don't even react badly to it. A lot of girls laugh a lot.

Then it makes me think of what I could accomplish with just a simple "hey".

Stop being a pussy and get out there. Talking to people really isn't that hard. And you have to do it if you want a girlfriend.

Now since this is FJ, here's a small bit of funny:

The highway patrolman spotted a car driving dangerously slow on a much-traveled freeway. He pulled it over and found the driver to be an elderly lady with four other older women as passengers.

"Lady," said the officer, "your slow driving is almost as dangerous as speeders. You need to try to keep the speed limit."

"But I always keep the speed limit," replied the lady. "I was doing the speed limit when you stopped me."

The officer asked, "What do you think the limit is on this road?"

The dear old lady said, "I just a moment ago saw the sign, U.S. Highway 22."

"But lady," warned the officer, "that is the highway number, not the speed limit"

The lady was very apologetic and, of course, no ticket was given. The officer noticed that all the passengers seemed pale and had a frightened look in their eyes. As he turned to leave the car, wondering if his presence had been the problem, he turned again and said to the driver, "Ma'am, are you sure all your passengers are OK?"

"Oh, they will be in a few moments," she said, "we just turned off Highway 120."

even then you need the battery removed. You could still fuck up the circuitry if there's a source of voltage and the whole thing is wet.
