"Throughout the middle ages and on into the fifteenth century, large Jewish communities emerged in Spain, Italy, Germany, France and Eastern Europe, especially Poland and Russia.
Governments throughout Europe barred Jews from owning land, so few were farmers. They gravitated to commercial and industrial occupations with trade skills.
At the fringe of society and business, Jews were storekeepers, peddlers, artisans, bakers, tailors, small factory owners and middlemen merchants.
In Dr Sowell's research, he found out that the historical prejudice against Jewish businessmen has also been experienced by other successful trading groups: "Where middlemen are ethnically distinct group - the Chinese in South east Asia, the east Indians in Uganda, and the Ibos in Nigeria - that ethnic group is hated by the masses who deal with them." (From THE JEWISH PHENOMENON book Introduction, page 17 by STEVEN SILBIGER)
The Jews today have their own state of Israel, a world super power and a nuclear nation, same with the Chinese and the Indians.
Igbos need Biafra to fight back and protect themselves from the animosity, hatred and envy that success always attracts or we go extinct but the latter is not and must not be an option.
