in thread A Level Playing Field

Have you ever played a game of telephone? I doubt you know Jews that were forced into exile - but perhaps their descendants. Who have been coloured by the same myths about their ancestry as the rest of us.

There's no doubt that the Inquisition did some nasty things. And that anti-Semitism was rampant throughout the middle ages (which later developed into letting the Nazi Holocaust to be permitted in Germany). And that the two got intermingled. However, you're judging the Inquisition based on today's standards. It's like saying that the middle ages was slow because it took days to get from city to city when we can travel around the world in 36 hours. You need to take things in context - the inquisition was still the most enlightened court system in Europe at the time

And I take your history book challenge. Now take mine.

(PS - Wikipedia is written by amateurs, so I'm not going to take its word seriously since those who are convinced by the myths of the inquisition will consistantly and constantly edit out modern historical data in much the same way I'm consistantly and constantly downvoted for speaking the truth against such a popular myth.)
