    Bob Marley

    Jew Score:

    K5
    February 6, 1945 – May 11, 1981

    If you ever go to Jamaica, you will find out about the country's obsession with national icon Bob Marley. His face is plastered everywhere, from flags, to t-shirts, to bongs, to hats. Jamaicans love their Marley.

    So what's he doing on this website?

    Well, according to Marley's relatives, the Marleys were once Syrian Jews. They started out in the Middle East, made their way to England, and ended up in Jamaica.

    So maybe next time we visit, we'll bring our own Marley flag. Not the one where his face is superimposed on Jamaica's green and gold, but rather on Israel's white and blue.

    Yeah, sure, we're stretching it. But come to think of it, don't Marley's rastafarian dreadlocks look a lot like peyes?

    Ya, mon.

    Verdict: Barely a Jew.
