Jews tried to trick the Spartans: Jews try to Shakedown the Spartans

[Lorenz Kraus found this lovely example of ancient Jewish trickery. I mentioned in the Great Jewish Mask that the Jews had been trying their nonsense with other Ancient Greeks. Well, there are the Jews suddenly expressing a great interest in Spartan WEALTH … and then suddenly they are "brothers" who will "share" each other's wealth! I like the way Lorenz says it's the equivalent of "Tell us what's in your bank account". 🙂 Jan]

I found this trick of the Jews:

An exchange of letters in the deutero-canonical First Book of Maccabees expresses a Jewish claim to kinship with the Spartans:

Areus king of the Lacedemonians to Onias the high priest, greeting: It is found in writing, that the Lacedemonians and Jews are brethren, and that they are of the stock of Abraham: Now therefore, since this is come to our knowledge, ye shall do well to write unto us of your prosperity. We do write back again to you, that your cattle and goods are ours, and ours are yours.

— Authorized King James Version 1 Maccabees 12.20

"Tell us what’s in your bank account…"
