Easter of Blood. European Jews and ritual homicides - by Professor Ariel Toaff
Jew man sacrifice of white children.
Professor Ariel Toaff teaches at the Bar Illan University near Tel Aviv, a Jewish academic who has cause a fuss by writing a book stating that over a four hundred year period, Jews murdered Christians during the Middle Ages so that their blood could be used in rituals.
Last night his claims were denied by other Jews including his father Elio, a former chief rabbi in Rome.
In the book, Prof Toaff describes the mutilation and crucification of a two-year-old boy to recreate Christ's execution at Pesach, the Jewish Easter.
Pesach marks the fleeing of the Jews from Egypt and Prof Toaff says Christian blood was used for "magic and therapeutic practices."
In some cases the blood was mixed with dough to make the azzimo, unleavened bread, eaten at Pesach.
He says the acts took place in northern Italy, around the city of Trento in German-speaking areas that border modern-day Austria.
Prof Toaff bases his book on confessions he says came from Jews captured and put on trial for the practice, which took place from 1100 and 1500.
He writes that several confessed to the crucifixion of Christian children and that they were executed.
Toaff’s book was condemned by Jewish leaders in Rome. Their declaration read: "There has never existed in the Jewish tradition any ritual involving human blood”.
