This year falling on July 16, 2013
On that date the following awful events occurred:
586 BCE – The First Temple was destroyed by the Babylonians
70 AD – The Second Temple was destroyed by the Romans and the Jews fled into the Diaspora – mostly areas surrounding the Mediterranean including Spain.
133 CE – Simon bar Kochba Revolt with remaining Jews warring against the Romans brutally butchered in the final battle at Betar.
1290 – July 18 King Edward I expelled the Jews of England
1492 – August 2 – Expulsion of Jews from Spain as a result of the Inquisition. Among them a likely Jew, Christopher Columbus, who, with his Jewish navigators, took his 3 ships to look for riches in the New World.
1941 – August 2 – The German Nazi SS murdered 600 Jews in Targivica, Ukraine with the Ukrainians participating joyously as “Willing Executioners” as did almost all the other nations of Europe (“Hitler’s Willing Executioners” by Daniel Jonah Goldhaggen 1996 No. 1 bestseller)
