Jews achieved prominence in banking in the middle ages because Christians could not lend or borrow with interest (usury). Princes , Kings, nobility, even clergy would borrow from Jews , who could carge interest on loans legally. Heavily indebted , it sometimes became convenient to whip up anti Jewish sentiments and get the Jews killed or expelled rather than pay back the money. Everyone likes to borrow money when they need it, and most everyone hates having to pay it back.

"Jews achieved prominence in banking in the middle ages because Christians could not lend or borrow with interest"

Evidence please. This is nonsense.

There were Italian bankers who competed with Jewish bankers. Sicilians moved into England once Edward I kicked the Jews out, supplanting them as bankers.

The Knights Templar served as bankers for quite a while before their rather suspicious destruction.

You are full of crap. Go home, schlomo.

There is nothing legal about usury - their own god specifically forbade it. But far be it from kikes to follow the rules.

Usury is arbitrary theft and should not exist in any form. Credit is the other half of the operation.
