We're all well aware of the aspects of the JQ that involve over-representation in places of power in society, but I think it is also interesting to look into the JQ from a historical perspective to see the privileges that the Jews had since nearly the beginning of recorded history, so in contrast to the narratives of oppression peddled to us today.

From time immemorial this particularistic race has kept among themselves, seeing themselves as "chosen" with double-standards in morality. Through their natural drive to trade and usury, they have spread far and wide to port cities and trading post, growing rich through trade, interest and theft. With their newly found the wealth the Jews become useful to European governments, using their influence to extract privileges from the kings such as tax exemptions, the ability to lend money at interest and even military protection. In the city of Tudela in Navarre the Jews were housed by the king in a fortress to protect them from the enraged goyim (see pic 2).

Anyways, this thread will discuss jewry mostly from a historical perspective. Feel free to contribute and recommend either videos, works or infographs that go into good detail on these matters.

there weren't any jews in scandinavia in medieval times right?

Fel. Danskarna var nordens judar ända fram till 1800-talet.

Ibrahim ibn Yaqub, a Sephardic jewish merchant went to Hedeby which was then a Danish town, thus there probably some more jewish merchants operating in the region. It's possible they were even briefly in Iceland. Saxo Grammaticus doesn't report on any jews however, so it was likely jews were very uncommon in Scandinavia compared to Germany, Russia etc., or at least more cryptic.
They possibly could've been major players in Scandinavia during medieval times, via the Hanseatic league. As we know, Lombard bankers from Venice etc. had crypto-jews in their ranks, and they went up north to trade in the Baltic with the Hanseatic league. Most of them probably hid their identity.

c3224 No.513

Long is a stretch. Since WW2.

99b1e No.514

I read it was illegal for jews to stay in scandinavia at least sweden during stormaktstiden but I don't know if it's true

but can you prove that they were powerful and had control over hanseatic league and stuff?

8e5f9 No.515

King charles something in like the 1600s

8e5f9 No.516

Its been awhile, dont remember.

c3224 No.517

It wasn't illegal, but they had no rights, couldn't marry, couldn't own much property if any and weren't allowed to hold any important offices. That's why they usually stayed away. I think it was the same in Denmark and Norway, not sure though considering they were a little bit less harsh with their Protestantism.

The hyper-Protestant kangs absolutely hated Jews. So did Luther himself obviously.

Lübeck was part of the Hanseatic league.
>what are crypto jews
Jews that deny that they're jews outwardly, but know that they're jews.
They were banned from Denmark until Kristian IV liberated them. Of course, there were pro-jewish factions all over Scandinavia, just take "Queen" Kristina (yes, "she" was a hermaphrodite and a homosexual)
>had control over hanseatic league
Basically, the northern Italian merchant states like Venice/Genoa had a lot of crypto-jews in their ranks. These people went north to the Hanseatic states, and traded there. Also England in-between William I and Edward I was full of jews, and so when parts of England joined the league, many jewish merchants likely got to the Baltic via England. (William himself was jewish, not Norman by the way, he was an "illegitimate" son of the duke and a tanner, but the Latin word for bastard was the Hebrew word mamzer back then, meaning his mother was a jew).
