Renaissance Era Quote:
“What pernicious act is this, to expel the Jews? Do you not know what it might cost you in years to come? Who gave the Turk his strength and where else would he have found the skilled craftsmen to make the cannon, bows, shot, swords, shields and bucklers which enable him to measure himself against other powers, if not among the Jews who were expelled by the Kings of Spain?”
-1573, Soranzo to the Venice Council of Ten. Venice was preparing to expel the Jews.
