Stätütüm dè Jûdèísmö 1275 From The Statutes of the Realm, vol. I, pp. 220-1Whew, one can hear the kvetching, howling and hand-twisting from 8 century's ago to today. Naturally, the Jew money-lenders pretty much ignored this edict, forcing the King to boot their money-grubbing asses out of England.
Forasmuch as the King hath seen that divers evils and the disinheriting of good men of his land have happened by the usuries which the Jews have made in time past, and that divers sins have followed thereupon albeit that he and his ancestors have received much benefit from the Jewish people in all times past, neverthless, for the honour of God and the common benefit of the people the King hath ordained and established, that from henceforth no Jew shall lend anything at usury either upon land, or upon rent or upon other thing.
And that no usuries shall run in time coming from the feast of St. Edward last past. Notwithstanding the covenants before made shall be observed, saving that the usuries shall cease. But all those who owe debts to Jews upon pledge of moveables shall acquit them between this and Easter; if not they shall be forfeited. And if any Jew shall lend at usury contrary to this Ordinance, the King will not lend his aid, neither by himself or his officers for the recovering of his loan; but will punish him at his discretion for the offence and will do justice to the Christian that he may obtain his pledges again.
And that the distress for debts due unto Jews from henceforth shall not be so grievous but that the moiety of lands and chattels of the Christians shall remain for their maintenance; and that no distress shall be made for a Jewry debt upon the heir of the debtor named in the Jew’s deed, nor upon any other person holding the land that was the debtor’s before that the debt be put in suit and allowed in court.
Jews could thenceforth make a living in England only as merchants, farmers, craftsmen or soldiers. "Vat iz Ziss? Youse Goyim want to make the Chosen Ones do manual labor?"
I know this will sound repetitive, but this common sense statute was/is deemed anti-Semitic.
But plotting, scheming and planning does pay off, for with the Jew money-lender inspired English Civil War of the mid 17th Century, these parasites slithered back into England and firmly stuck their fangs into the English neck, where they remain to this day.
What did this common sense statute do for the descendants?
Fuck with the money changers these days, and you'll end up getting Arkancided in your fuck-proof jail cell with the non-functioning CCTV camera.
