French far-left leader Jean-Luc Melenchon accuses Jews of responsibility for Jesus's death

far-left French politician accused Jews of deicide, or being responsible for the death of Jesus, during a television interview.

Jean-Luc Melenchon, the founder of the democratic socialist La France Insoumise, or Unsubmissive France party, and a member of the National Assembly, made the remarks on Thursday in an interview on the French BFM-RTL TV news channel.

Asked if the French police were supposed to stand back in the face of violent protest, Melenchon responded that they needed to “stay put like Jesus on the cross without reacting.” He added that “I don’t know if Jesus was on a cross, but he was apparently put there by his own people,” he said, meaning Jews.

1. He doesn't know if Jesus was crucified, but, even so, "the Jews did it"...?



Seriously, this guy sounds like the Steve King of the left. Looks like this isn't his first anti-Jewish comment, either. Plus, he seems to have a track record of both corruption and fomenting political violence. Friend of Putin, too. If he were over here, he'd probably be far-right instead.

3. Lenny Bruce's responses to accusations that Jews killed Christ:

1. "All right, I'll clear the air once and for all, and confess," joked Bruce. "Yes, we did it. I did it, my family. I found a note in my basement. It said: 'We killed him. Signed, Morty."'

2. Lenny Bruce did not hesitate to laugh at gentiles, at Christians, at Judaism and the relations between the two faiths. In the puritan 1950’s, when the threat of Senator Joe McCarthy was everywhere in show business, most Jews just wished to integrate and not make a fuss. But not Lenny Bruce. He poked a finger right in the eye of Christian American society, and kept it down. “We Jews killed Christ and if he comes back, we’ll kill him again”, he provoked a packed club once.

4. What was old is new again.

Of course, we are getting it from both sides, also falls under the category of "what was old is new again."

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

5. First, like most of the gospels, it's probably symbolic. Jesus's teachings were turned into

Biographies...that's why they don't match up. The underlying message was the point.

Secondly, anyone who believes the Romans, and Pilate in particular...a known brute...took their cues from the people they governed, the Jews, is hopelessly ignorant of history.
