Variant of "Yeshua" or "Yushke" used in Hebrew- or Yiddish-speaking and other Jewish communities. Sometimes derogatory, "Yeshu" is usually just used by Non-Messianic Jews who just don't know better.
The derogatory use of "Yeshu" is an acronym to refer specifically to the Messianic Jewish (Christian) and historical figure Yeshua in terms of "Yemach shemo uv'zichrono"-- literally, "May his name and memory be wiped out."

A Hispanic and Jewish last name, such as folk singer Joan Baez has. An infamous bearer of the "Baez" surname is an unethical and immoral Puerto-Rican New Yorker named Jose "Juanie Cochran" Baez; who shamed the Hispanic, New Yorker (including Hispanic New Yorker), and legal and law-enforcement communities by conspiring to perjure and witness tamper in order to help acquit a infantocidal sociopath named Casey Marie Anthony.
"Look; at least that guy wasn't a Jose Baez-- so you can't down the legal system completely. Cochran, Baez-- who cares? At least he recused himself from representing Levi Aron when he knew that he murdered Leiby Kletzky."

The Hebrew word for "Holocaust", "Sho'ah" means "Destruction". Contrary to flippant myth, "sho'ah" ("שואה") is never thrown around lightly.
Because of the Nazis' intent on committing ethnocide against the Jewish people, "sho'ah" has come to refer exclusively to the Holocaust ("HaShoah" meaning "The Destruction").
