Background

Venice - a city located within the marshes of the river Po and at the top of the Adriatic Sea was founded around 532 CE by Sarmatian noble family refugees fleeing the Byzantine Empire and the capital crime issued by Justinian that practicing Sarmatians religion (demon worship and human sacrifice by burning) was a capital crime.

The word "Venice" comes from the Latin veneti, which is equivalent to the Greek etenoi, which means "Praisworthy/Chosen". It is the title self impossed by the Sarmatians claiming to be the only race "chosen by God", with all other cultures, races and people doomed to fire and fodder.

The title became their unofficial resistance cry against the Byzantines in forming new settlements in Spain and the top of the Adriatic.

Early Venice -- a famous Jewish state

Prior to the wholesale revision of history to hide the obvious historical facts, Venice was known as one of the most famous Jewish States of the early middle ages. After Septimania was captured by the Umayyad caliphate in the 7th Century, Venice became the last purely Jewish state on the Mediterranean in history until the formation of Israel in 1948.

Within one hundred and fifty years of their exile from Sarmara , the colonists of Etenoi (Veneti) has signed a trade pact with Byzantine that enabled the Jewish trading states of Septimania in Spain, Egypt and Venice to move their vessels past Constantinople to Samara, the capital of the Khazars in the Black Sea.

During the formation of the Catholic Church and invasion of Rome and then later the rise of the Abbasid Islamic Khazar Dynasty, Venice became a key ally to Constantinople.

The dominance of the Urseoli Clan

Of all the Doges that ruled Venice, the Urseoli clan were without question the most powerful ruling Venice as Sarmatian Jewish Wizard Priest-Kings for over 200 years (9th century to 11th century) before being thrown out by the citizens of Venice.

Venetian leaders did not become nominally Christian until late in the 12th century, even then in outward behaviour.

Venice’s long decline started in the 15th century, when it first made an unsuccessful attempt to maintain Thessalonica against the Ottomans (1423-1430). It also sent ships to help defend Constantinople against the besieging Turks (1453).

After the city fell to Sultan Mehmet II he declared war on Venice. It lasted thirty years and cost Venice much of its eastern Mediterranean possessions. Next, Spain discovered the New World. Then Portugal found a sea route to India, destroying Venice’s land route monopoly. France, England and Holland followed them. Venice’s oared galleys could not traverse the great oceans. It was left behind in the race for colonies.

The Black Death devastated the general non-Sephardic population of Venice in 1348 and once again between 1575 and 1577. In three years the plague killed some 50,000 people. In 1630, the plague killed a third of Venice's 150,000 citizens.

Venice began to lose its position as a center of international trade during the later part of the Renaissance as Portugal became Europe's principal intermediary in the trade with the East, striking at the very foundation of Venice's great wealth, while France and Spain fought for hegemony over Italy in the Italian Wars, marginalising its political influence.

However, the Venetian empire was a major exporter of agricultural products and, until the mid-18th century, a significant manufacturing center.

After 1070 years, the Republic lost its independence when Napoleon Bonaparte on May 12, 1797, conquered Venice during the First Coalition.

Venice became Austrian territory when Napoleon signed the Treaty of Campo Formio on October 12, 1797. The Austrians took control of the city on January 18, 1798. It was taken from Austria by the Treaty of Pressburg in 1805 and became part of Napoleon's Kingdom of Italy, but was returned to Austria following Napoleon's defeat in 1814, when it became part of the Austrian-held Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia.

In 1848-1849 a revolt briefly reestablished the Venetian Republic under Daniele Manin. In 1866, following the Third Italian War of Independence, Venice, along with the rest of the Veneto, became part of newly created Kingdom of Italy.

The bizarre exclusion of Venice from World War II

Venice was officially part of the Axis powers territory of Catholic Fascist dictators in World War II. However, it has the unique distinction of being the only major city of any Axis power to neither be bombed nor attacked during World War II -- the claimed Operation Bowler being a 15 minute single side show undertaken in March 1945 which claimed not one civilian life --largely to prove the Allies had done something against the Nazis stationed in Venice since the start of the war.

The historic importance of Venice in terms of art treasure and architecture was far less than many of the cities totally destroyed by Allied and Axis bombing in World War II, particularly in Germany.

How such a strategic city was ignored in World War II has never been properly explained.
