Jewish Diaspora

        Like people of many other religions, Jews have struggled to find acceptance in their ways and beliefs.  They have been criticized for their actions and differences from other societies.  Jews, however, are not ordinary people.  They are believed by many to be the chosen people of God.  They have been able to accomplish what many would consider impossible.  They have been outnumbered numerous times in wars and have somehow been able to overcome and defeat their rivals.  Why then, have they been judged for so long?  Many people believe that they deserve to be treated badly because of the idea that Jesus came down to Earth and the Jewish people helped, in their own way, to crucify him.  They supposedly turned their backs on him and turned him in to the Romans.  This would explain why Jews have struggled so much and why at the same time, they have been able to survive for so long without being destroyed.  

It seems to be a punishment given by God towards his people for not accepting his Son as he came down from heaven.  However, it seems as though no matter what type of suffering has been put in front of them, God has always protected them because of his love for them.  Therefore, whether or not you accept the Jewish people and their beliefs, they are beyond question, one of the most formidable and remarkable races to have ever existed.  However, we can’t ignore the fact that for some undeniable reason, they have suffered tremendously throughout time.  Regardless of the reason, we should all realize that the Jewish people are unique.  They have survived and lived through many horrible situations.  In my opinion, only God could have helped them accomplish this.  The Jewish people have had to fight back many times.  There seemed to be no escape or answer to their suffering.  When would the pain stop?  Everywhere the Jews went, they seemed to be plagued with a curse.  Eventually, they were forced to spread out for their own safety.  Thus, the dispersion of the Jewish people to lands outside of Israel began.  This has come to be known as the Jewish Diaspora (Dee-ahs-porah).

        The Jewish Diaspora is probably one of the least-known events in history, even though it has been important to every country in the world.  Information on this critical subject is not well-known outside of the Jewish community, which is surprising, because it has affected an entire race of people ever since 720 BC.  

        The first diaspora, which happened in 720 BC, is the one in which historians know the least.  There are no traces of to where these Jews dispersed.  This diaspora was initiated when the Assyrians forced the Jews out of Israel.  Ten tribes left the Promiseland and ...
