Thomas Paine - The Famous Revolutionary on the Jews

"We know nothing of what the ancient Gentile world was before the time of the Jews, whose practice has been to calumniate (to slander) and blacken the character of all other nations, and it is from the Jewish accounts that we have learned to call them heathens. But as far as we know to the contrary, they were a just and moral people, and not addicted, like the Jews, to cruelty and revenge. -From the Age of Reason

See Thomas Paine's Wikipedia here. Find his books here. I guess we should put him on this list. See here for what the former Israeli minister said about anti-Semitism.
