Granger,

don't let the facts get in the way of a good story. Most histories are lies written by the victor.
May I suggest that you visit the following site
http://www.ihr.org/main/search.shtml
the detailed research is astounding, undertaken by people who are passionate about "warts and all" history.
To keep it brief, and no matter what you have been told, the Jews of Europe did not have Semitic bloodlines, they came from the Kazakh regions in the 8th century, because their King converted to Judaism.
Being a Roman Catholic, doesn't make you Italian.
PS. I don't trust ANYTHING Wiki has to say about Jewish history and especially Jews/war/Palestine/Israel, so am not inclined to use that as a "factual" base.
