Jewish persecution of Christians
(Redirected from Persecution of Christians by Jews)
This article contains a chronology of the Jewish persecution of Christians.
Persecution by century
- 132 — Judaea Province, Roman Empire. Rabbi Akiva ben Joseph claims that Simon Bar Kokhba is the "messiah". Christians reject this claim and refuse to join in the Bar Kokhba terror campaign against the Roman Empire. As a result the Jews murdered many Christians. Bar Kochba ordered Christians to be executed if they would not deny and curse Jesus Christ. According to Justin Martyr, "The Jews were behind all the persecutions of the Christians. They wandered through the country everywhere hating and undermining the Christian faith."
- 345 — Persia. The Jews brought accusations before Shapur II, King of Persia in the Sassanid Empire, that Simeon Barsabae, Bishop of Seleucia-Ctesiphon was an ally of the Roman Emperor. As a result Shapur II went on to persecute Christians. According to contemporary Greek historian Sozomen, around 16,000 Persian Christians were killed during his reign.
- 524 — Najran and Zafar, Yemen. The Jewish king of Himyar, Dhu Nuwas, took the city of Zafar, burned down churches and massacred all civilians who would not abandon Christianity. It is reported that 20,000 Arab Christians were massacred. Dhu Nuwas sent letters, detailing the news of his deeds to Al-Mundhir III ibn al-Nu'man and Kavadh I of Persia recommending they do the same.
- 599 — Antioch, Byzantine Empire. The Greek Patriarch of Antioch, Anastasius I of Antioch was slaughtered by a Jewish mob. They are said to have cut off his genitals, threw them in his face, then disembowelled him and dragged his body through the streets of Antioch.
- 711 — Kingdom of the Visigoths. Jews as well as converted Berbers from North Africa play essential role in the advancement of Arab imperialism into the Iberian Peninsula. After the Muslims conquered the cities of Elvira, Seville and Cordoba, they were left under a Jewish-led garrison, while the armies pursued the natives. Malaga could not be garrisoned by invaders because the city was Jew-free.
- 712 — Toledo, Kingdom of the Visigoths. Jewish fifth column opens the gates of Toledo to the invading armies of the Umayyad Caliphate, while Christian defenders of the capital city were occupied in celebrating a procession, on Palm Sunday at San Locadia church.
- 1145 — Pope Lucius II is killed due to injuries recieved when trying to retake the city of Rome back from a republican-commune conspiracy under the leadership of crypto-Jew, Giordano Pierleoni, calling itself the Commune of Rome.
- 1821 — The Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Constantinople, St. Gregory V of Constantinople was murdered by the barbaric terror regime of the Ottoman Empire around the start of the Greek War of Independence (even though he was not an active supporter). After being hanged, his corpse was sold to a gang of Jews, who dragged it around the city of Constantinople and then threw it in the Bosphorus.
- 1844 — Philadelphia, United States. The first Jew elected to Congress in the United States, Lewis Charles Levin, incited sectarian communal violence, known as the Philadelphia Nativist Riots. This led to the burning down of churches associated with Irish Catholics, such as St. Augustine's Church. Levin and his collaborator Samuel R Kramer were arrested and fined for "exciting to riot and treason".
- Some mass killings under Communist regimes, Communist persecutions of Christian religious organizations, and Communist destruction of Christian cultural heritages have been argued to have a relationship with anti-Christian Jewish sentiments and the relationship between Jews and Communism.
- 1931 — Moscow, Russia. The Cathedral of Christ the Savior, the largest Eastern Orthodox church in the world at the time, is dynamited on the direct orders of Lazar Kaganovich, the right-hand man of Joseph Stalin, to make way for a planned Palace of the Soviets. While standing in the rubble, he is reported as having said, "Mother Russia is cast down. We have ripped away her skirts."
