Jews like to brag about all their alleged accomplishments in science, technology, literature etc but get edgy and PO when their prominent role in the African slave trade is brought up. A further note is added below.
Recently, two Tribe members added their indignation to a site called "AHA Council Issues Policy Resolution about Jews and the Slave Trade." In that diatribe, they vehemently deny that Jews played a dominant role in the African slave trade, and don't wish to hear different, such as the following I added to help correct their error.
Within five minutes, this comment was wiped off the web page. Guess they don't like to hear the truth about the dominant role Jews played in the slave trade.The following passages are from Dr. Raphael's book Jews and Judaism in the United States: A Documentary History (New York: Behrman House, Inc., Pub, 1983), pp. 14, 23-25.
"Jews also took an active part in the Dutch colonial slave trade; indeed, the bylaws of the Recife and Mauricia congregations (1648) included an imposta (Jewish tax) of five soldos for each Negro slave a Brazilian Jew purchased from the West Indies Company. Slave auctions were postponed if they fell on a Jewish holiday. In Curacao in the seventeenth century, as well as in the British colonies of Barbados and Jamaica in the eighteenth century, Jewish merchants played a major role in the slave trade. In fact, in all the American colonies, whether French (Martinique), British, or Dutch, Jewish merchants frequently dominated.
"This was no less true on the North American mainland, where during the eighteenth century Jews participated in the 'triangular trade' that brought slaves from Africa to the West Indies and there exchanged them for molasses, which in turn was taken to New England and converted into rum for sale in Africa. Isaac Da Costa of Charleston in the 1750's, David Franks of Philadelphia in the 1760's, and Aaron Lopez of Newport in the late 1760's and early 1770's dominated Jewish slave trading on the American continent."
If they didn't like that history, they'll absolutely detest this history about how the Jews flourished in the slave trade--from same article.
Guess the Rabbi who wrote this about the slave trade, Rabbi Marc Lee Raphael, is one of those 'self-hating Jews?'The Jews were the recipients of favorable charters containing generous economic privileges granted by the Dutch West Indies Company in Amsterdam. The economic life of the Jewish community of Curacao revolved around ownership of sugar plantations and marketing of sugar, the importing of manufactured goods, and a heavy involvement in the slave trade, within a decade of their arrival, Jews owned 80 percent of the Curacao plantations. The strength of the Jewish trade lay in connections in Western Europe as well as ownership of the ships used in commerce. While Jews carried on an active trade with French and English colonies in the Caribbean, their principal market was the Spanish Main (today Venezuela and Colombia).
Extant tax lists give us a glimpse of their dominance. Of the eighteen wealthiest Jews in the 1702 and 1707 tax lists, nine either owned a ship or had at least a share in a vessel. By 1721 a letter to the Amsterdam Jewish community claimed that "nearly all the navigation...was in the hands of the Jews."' Yet another indication of the economic success of Curacao's Jews is the fact that in 1707 the island's 377 residents were assessed by the Governor and his Council a total of 4,002 pesos; 104 Jews, or 27.6 percent of the taxpayers, contributed 1,380 pesos, or 34.5 percent of the entire amount assessed.
In the British West Indies, two 1680 tax lists survive, both from Barbados; they, too, provide useful information about Jewish economic life. In Bridgetown itself, out of a total of 404 households, 54 households or 300 persons were Jewish, 240 of them living in "ye Towne of S. Michael ye Bridge Town." Contrary to most impressions, "many, indeed, most of them, were very poor." There were only a few planters, and most Jews were not naturalized or endenizened (and thus could not import goods or pursue debtors in court). But for merchants holding letters of endenization, opportunities were not lacking. Barbados sugar-and its by-products rum and molasses-were in great demand, and in addition to playing a role in its export, Jewish merchants were active in the import trade.
In fact, the oldest (and at one time, the richest) synagogue in the USA is in Newport, Rhode Island, the Touro Synagogue, which was built with money made off the African slave trade.
My thoughts on the Jew achievements in science and technology these days can be mostly attributed to the NSA, which is basically controlled by Israel, is stealing business and industrial secrets from inventors around the world and giving it to Israel, where an unlimited supply of free American money helps these thieves develop the technology and claim it as their own.
These days, the shackles Jew Inc uses to enslave humanity aren't made from steel, but from fiat money, compound interest rates and usury.
