A Short Legal History of the Jews in England

1275

King Edward I grants Jews licences for trading and farming in the ‘Statutum de Judeismo’ (commonly known as the Anti-Usury Laws) in an attempt to discourage Jews from money-lending and coin-clipping. It was the first Act in which the new Commons took part, in conjunction with the King.

1290

To great popular acclaim, King Edward I issued an Edict declaring that all Jews must leave England by 1 November. The wardens of the Cinque Ports were to supervise their departure and see that the poor were able to obtain cheap tickets. No man was allowed to “injure, harm, damage or grieve” them. They were to be allowed to take all their cash and personal property, but their bonds and real estate reverted to the Crown, while synagogues became Church property.

1655

Demurrer by William Prynne was published, in which Prynne, a distinguished lawyer of Lincoln’s Inn, argued forcefully against Jewish readmission, quoting numerous authorities that having been banished by the King and a full Commons, and “never since could they obtain any priviledge to return hither again,” the banishment was of permanent effect.

1656

Cromwell, having executed King Charles I, readmits the Jews. The order leading to the execution of the King was drawn up by a Dutch Jew, Isaac Dorislaus, and approved by a rigged court. According to tradition, Cromwell had intended to sell St. Paul’s Cathedral to the Jews for use as their central synagogue.

1753

A Jewish Naturalization Bill (“the Jew Bill”) granted naturalization to Jews on personal application to Parliament.

k

k

1754

The Jewish Naturalization Bill was repealed following public demonstrations and protest.

k

k

1858

The law was changed so that Jews could become Members of Parliament, they formerly having refused to swear an oath “upon the true faith of a Christian.”

k

k

1936

The first Public Order Act. Effective from 1 January 1937, it banned political uniforms and paramilitary groups. The law is now very arbitrarily enforced.

k

k

1965

The first Race Relations Act was introduced into the House of Commons by Sir Frank Soskice, an immigrant Russian Jew.

k

k

1968

The Runnymede Trust was founded by Anthony Lester and Jim Rose, both Jews, a few weeks after Enoch Powell’s ‘rivers of blood’ speech in Birmingham.

k

k

1976

The Jewish Chronicle of 17 January 1975 reported that “Section 6 of the Race Relations Act, 1965, dealing with incitement to racial hatred, may be amended and strengthened following representations made to the [Jewish] Attorney General, Mr. Sam Silkin, QC, by the Board of Deputies of British Jews. In the view of the board’s Jewish Defence and Group Relations Committee, the weakness of the Section is its present requirement that ‘intent’ to stir up racial hatred must be proven for any prosecution to succeed.” The Editorial expressed satisfaction with the result, but said that it “would better have been achieved by less publicised means.” The Race Relations Act duly removed the need to prove ‘intent’ in prosecutions for ‘Incitement to Racial Hatred’ and was passed in the House of Commons with only 132 of its 635 Members being present.

k

k

1985

In 1994, during a Commons debate to introduce further race relations legislation into law, Harry Cohen, Jewish MP for Leyton and Wanstead said, “In 1985, I introduced the Racial Harassment Bill under the ten-minute rule. It was the first Bill presented to Parliament to make racial attack a criminal offence.”

k

k

1986

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s Neville Nagler, a synagogue official, was the head of the Home Office department responsible for race relations matters. Whenever a Cabinet Minister made a speech on the subject, notes for the text were always drafted by Nagler, who routinely consulted officials at the Jewish Board of Deputies such as Geoffrey Bindman and Anthony Lester. The 1986 Public Order Act was placed before parliament by the Conservative Home Secretary, a Jewish immigrant from Lithuania, Leon Brittanisky, also known as Leon Brittan, assisted by his cousin, another Lithuanian Jew, Malcolm Rivkind, also know as Malcolm Rifkind. Official commentary on the law explicitly refers to the Runnymede Trust.

k

k

1998

A further raft of race law was introduced, overseen this time by a part-Jewish Home Secretary, Jack Straw. Around 27 offences carry increased penalties if the offence is deemed to be “racially aggravated.” The maximum penalty for ‘Incitement to Racial Hatred’ was raised from two to seven years.

2006

According to Jewish sources, there are at least 59 Jewish Members of Parliament, with Britain being second only to Israel for its proportion of Jewish legislators. Britain has a Jewish-financed Prime Minister and a Jewish Attorney General. New legislation is being introduced so fast that legal libraries cannot keep up, and government ministers are facing prosecution for breaking their own laws. Jewish press reports in September 2006 admitted that the Edict of Explusion is still valid, with Israeli historian Ori Katzir saying “All that needs to be done is for the queen to sign a contradictory decree, and this has never been done. I wonder when the Israeli government will demand that the UK will have Queen Elizabeth II sign such a decree and revoke the edict.”

  2. That was very enlightening, thank you Digger. Actually I’m surprised that the number of jewish mps in the UK parliament isn’t much higher than 59. The rest of them out of 650 total join ‘Friends of Israel’ if they want to get any high position. Fix or what?

    So not only did Oliver Cromwell direct the physical and psychological torture of the Celts of Ireland; he also saw to it that England was re-infected.

    From an early age I knew he was a supremely evil human, but I wasn’t aware he was an absolute traitor to his own people as well.

    I promise not to become a Pogues-posting maniac, but this just brings to mind lyrics to ‘Young Ned of the Hill’ which go, in part, like this:

    A curse upon you Oliver Cromwell
    You who raped our Mother Land
    I hope you’re rotting down in hell
    for the horrors that you sent
    to our misfortunate forefathers
    who were robbed of their Birthright
    ‘To Hell or Connacht!’, may you burn in hell tonight….

    Anyone so wishing a link to the song:

    And, anyone wishing further historical context not directly related to Digger’s article above can read this analysis of the song and the song’s hero, Eammon O Riain (hey, we share the same last name! Excepting my ‘O’ was apparently dropped in the Ocean on the way to the land where streets are paved with gold) and villian, Old Ollie himself , here: http://socrates.berkeley.edu/~caforum/volume1/pdf/cashman.pdf
