>The problem with Jews was not the god they were worshiping, it was that they would not reciprocate: they claimed their G*d was the only god, and absolutely refused to worship any others. (Had Jews agreed to add Jupiter, and, say,  Augustus to their worship, Romans would have had no problem with building a temple to Yahweh, too).

I am not sure that that is QUITE true. By Messianic Law the first two 
Commandments are "I am The Lord thy God and thou shall have no other 
Gods before me." As long it was made clear that Jupiter was subservient 
to Adonai, it would be acceptable.
