I Am A Jew

"Yes, I am a Jew and when the ancestors of the right honourable gentleman were brutal savages in an unknown island, mine were priests in the temple of Solomon."
- Benjamin Disraeli, Great Britains first, and so far only, Jewish Prime Minister, in response to Irish Nationalist Daniel O'Connel, who had attacked him for being Jewish.
