Indeed, "Jesus" was a very common name at that time, but many scholars identify Apollonius of Tyana's with Jesus as they both lived the same era! However Apolonius book was written much earlier than the Gospels. Apollonius theo-philosophy was translated only in the 19th century, due to the astonishing similarities to the NT. The author of the book, Jonathan Swift (an Anglican priest, if I recall well) apologized (sic!) at the end of his book (translation) for the similarities with the Bible!
All. It was to the former gentiles. Jesus was for..the world. Salvation and healing ate for the world...gentiles.

The Irish assimilated? Yeah, after decades. Before that, they took over big city politics, police and fire departments, etc -- much to the chagrin of the nativists -- who had to adjust to Catholic Churches, etc being built in large numbers in places where the nativists thought they were in control. The Irish, et al assimilated into a society that they actually helped shape. That's how immigration works.
Care to point out where I claimed that the ancient Hebrew folks were killing [no need for quotes] people left and right or shall we chalk this up to another lie for you?
Where did you prove this?
