148. it impossible for Jewish people to live there and feel secure.
I don't know if this is true ....but I'll take your word on it.

And why have all these posts ignored "for centuries".... as in more than just the 20th century....or today?

BTW.... Catholic doctrine may have been bad, but those protestants didn't seem to love the Jews either.....CENTURIES ago...
