Alternative Plus Sign - A Jewish Tradition





The word kike was born on Ellis Island when there were Jewish immigrants who were also illiterate (or could not use Latin alphabet letters), when asked to sign the entry-forms with the customary ’X,’* refused, because they associated an X with the cross of Christianity, and made a circle in its place. The Yiddish word for ’circle’ is kikel (pronounced KY-kul), and for ’little circle,’ kikeleh (pronounced KY-kul-uh). Before long the immigration inspectors were calling anyone who signed with an ’O’ in place of an ’X’ a kikel or kikeleh or kikee or, finally and succinctly, kike.



According to Rosten, Jewish U.S. merchants continued to sign with an ’O’ in place of an ’X’ for several decades, spreading the nickname kike wherever they went as a result.

Why a O over a X you ask? Because a X looks to much like a Christian Cross which as we all know is an anathema to Vampires
