Isaiah 53:9 reads: "vayiten et reshaim kivro, v'et ashir bemotav, al lo khamas asa, velo mirma befiv." Rashi interprets this passage to mean: "He gave himself to all sorts of death, which were imposed on him [on the jew] for his refusal to accept apostasy upon himself [conversion], to do evil deeds, or to deal with robbery as do the Gentiles surrounding him." Rashi cannot be talking about conversion in the time of Isaiah; he must be talking about the crusader massacres following the refusal of the Jews to adopt Christianity.
