Although the first Jews may have arrived on the island of Great Britain with the Romans, it wasn't until the Norman Conquest of William the Conqueror in 1066 that organised Jewish communities first appeared in England. These existed until 1290 when the Jewish population of England was expelled by King Edward I of England. (Hence plays such as The Jew of Malta and The Merchant of Venice, regarded by many as antisemitic, were written when Jews did not live openly in England.)

Jews were re-admitted to England and Wales in 1656 by Oliver Cromwell, and emancipated in 1858. In the late 19th century there was mass Jewish immigration from Russia due to anti-semitism, and in the 1930s an influx of refugees from Nazism. The Jewish population peaked at 450,000, but has since declined due to low birth-rate, intermarriage and emigration, mainly of the younger generation to Israel. According to the 2001 census, the current population is around 240,000, most of whom live in London, though many experts consider this an underestimate.

A Dialog about Anti-Semitism (3568 words)
Jews are not even allowed to partake the food and wine of gentiles and have kept their distance from the communities which they inhabited - maintaining tenaciously, through countless generations, their language, habits, creed, dress, and national ethos.
Jews are not so much a race as a community, united in age-old traditions and beliefs, lore and myths, history and language.
The Jews' ability and readiness to mobilize and act to further their plans is a matter of record and the source of the inordinate influence of their lobby organizations in Washington, for instance.
Jews_ Islam (1351 words)
When the Jews of Medina refused to convert and rejected Muhammad, two of the major Jewish tribes were expelled; in 627, Muhammad's followers killed between 600 and 900 of the men, and divided the surviving Jewish women and children amongst themselves.
Jews were generally viewed with contempt by their Muslim neighbors; peaceful coexistence between the two groups involved the subordination and degradation of the Jews.
When Jews were perceived as having achieved too comfortable a position in Islamic society, anti­Semitism would surface, often with devastating results: On December 30, 1066, Joseph HaNagid, the Jewish vizier of Granada, Spain, was crucified by an Arab mob that proceeded to raze the Jewish quarter of the city and slaughter its 5,000 inhabitants.
