Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Is this his response to claims that he is an antisemite.
Robin Hood is well known as a defender of oppressed populations. But one aspect of his story that has mostly been lost to time, however, is his role as protector of Jews, who figured prominently in ballads and dramatic texts that began appearing in 15th- and 16th-century England. Aside from his fundamental mission of tikkun olam -- repairing the world via a forced redistribution of wealth, aka stealing from the rich and giving to the poor -- Robin Hood was originally portrayed as a champion of all the oppressed, whether they be peasants, Muslims, disinherited kings, scorned Crusaders, anti-clerics or Jews.
