In the aftermath of the Paris attacks, French prime minister Manuel Valls, who said: 'If 100,000 Jews leave, France will no longer be French, the French Republic will be judged a failure.'
Mrs May said the same sentiment was also true of the UK. 'Without its Jews, Britain would not be Britain, just as without its Muslims, Britain would not be Britain - without its Sikhs, Hindus, Christians and people of other faiths, Britain would not be Britain.'
In solidarity with the French, Mrs May and other antendees of the event held up signs reading: 'Je suis juif' – 'I am Jewish.'Source: Daily Mail
The Jews were expelled from England by Edward I in 1290. They then didn't return until the time of Cromwell in the 1660s or so. Even then, their numbers were not significant until the 19th century. So, according to Theresa May, England wasn't really England during the time of Shakespeare and Elizabeth, because there weren't any Jews there then. Absurd. And insulting. Britain was Britain before any Jews, Muslims, negroes, Hindus or Sikhs arrived in it. And it will still be Britain after they've gone.
