"But in the summer of 1661, a decade after the Chmielnicki massacres and its resultant famines, leading rabbis from Poland and Ukraine—the “Elders of the Four Councils”—met in Vilna to discuss why such evils had befallen the Jewish people."

So living amongst dumb Polaks... just gave them so much material for humor... so many thugs and simpletons to poke fun at?

A discussion of Jewish humor. This particular topic seems promising.

Maybe Limpy could share his opinion on the subject?

The Holocaust was funny!!!

I think it was funny that Jew Max Waburg was the biggest funder of
Nazi Germany & controller of I.G Farben which used the "Zyklon B" for the Holocaust.
