If anyone who has borrowed a sum of money from Jews dies before the debt has been repaid, his heir shall pay no interest on the debt for so long as he remains under age, irrespective of whom he holds his lands

from Barons of King John of England – The Magna Carta on Rap Genius

Meaning

At this point, the Catholic faith prohibits usury (money lending), so only Jewish folks can loan money. This is the root of much of the animosity that developed toward Jewish people- Occupy Wall Street shows how much folks love the folks who loan them money — and here the lords who stuff the Magna Carta down the King’s throat try to screw the Jews a bit.
