Apparently documents in a Buddhist monastery from the early first century indicate that Jesus was actually in India during his childhood. That could potentially explain why his ideas diverged so greatly from Judaism and Roman paganism while sharing many elements with Buddhism . . .

Obscure documents in some monestary of a different religion, give a weird scenario where a Jewish man goes to India, against every other record..........IT MUST BE TRUE!

1. There are Jews in India. That is a fact.

2. Jesus was in Kashmir, and Kashmiris are descendants of Jews. This has been proven by genetic analysis as well as analysis of surnames.

So yes, it is possible that like other Jews, Jesus went to India.

Explain to me how a 1st century document discusses Jesus before Christianity existed there.

There are Jews in almost every country on earth. Also a fact.

Can you source this? Also, even if this is true....once against, obscure monestary, of an opposing religion, of a far out idea that a Jewish guy somehow went to India, or was born there, go the ideas, came back with his dad and mom, and did all this.....and wouldn't it benefit Buddhism a lot if this was brought to light? And it's a little convenient for them I say...

Herod was on an infanticide kick.

Joseph was a smart man, more than likely guided as well, perhaps even told by the THE THREE WISE MEN from "the orient" that if things ever got out of hand and Herod's cheese slid off his cracker...then to come to India and give the Christ child the education he deserves. What would you do as Jesus's father?

Good. So, why is it so strange that a Jew named Jesus went to India? We already know that there are Jews in every country. Why couldn't Jesus be one of them?

The Jews that I am discussing right now are not the European Jews that you are thinking about. They are Indian Jews. Judaism was not invented in India, so the existence of ancient lines of Indian Jews proves that Jews did travel to India.
2. Jesus was in Kashmir, and Kashmiris are descendants of Jews. This has been proven by genetic analysis as well as analysis of surnames.

Can you source this?

I don't see why the fact that the monastery is obscure means it is false. "Obscure" means that people don't pay attention to it, not that it's wrong.
of a far out idea that a Jewish guy somehow went to India
The fact that Jews visited and settled in India in ancient times is a documented historical fact, not only in Kashmir, but in other areas as well. If other Jews could travel to India, why couldn't Jesus have done so?
, or was born there, go the ideas, came back with his dad and mom, and did all this.....and wouldn't it benefit Buddhism a lot if this was brought to light? And it's a little convenient for them I say...

The Bible itself documents that Jesus traveled East as a child because of Hesoid's reign of terror. That's in your own religious texts. The other few things to note are that 1. Buddhists do not actively attempt to convert. Religion is not a zero sum game for them, as it is for Christians, so the fact that it would "benefit" them is meaningless. In fact, Buddhists don't get any spiritual rewards for conversion and they do not get any political rewards either. Simply put, there is no incentive for them to lie about this. Moreover, are you suggesting that Buddhist monks in the first century had a vision that told them to document that a boy named Jesus lived in their monastery so that they could convert his Christian followers thousands of years after he left them?

Its difficult to know that much about Jesus since it was in the 1st century so we shouldn't ponder too much. We don't even know his last name.

Unfortunately the documents are not available AFAIK. There are two people who say they have seen it.
The Holy Quran 29:19-20

See they not how Allah originates creation, then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah.

Say: "Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation; so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things.

Apparently no. This research has been done in Pakistani side of Kashmir. (The sample size is small - only 12 samples were collected from Kashmiris)

According to xtianities alleged preferred Story book; the things we can be certain of (apparently according to trinitarians?) is that their jesus was a literal bastard formed by their alleged holy-spirit person spiritually raping Mary, refusing to marry her and then dumping their little bastard on to Story book Joseph (the Cuckold).

Me Composer the ongoing successful Cult buster: Quite the opposite in fact especially because I repeatedly successfully bust ideologies and Cults like yours using my intimate accurate knowledge of Story books like the bible to defeat you with your own alleged ammunition that actually only fatally wounds yourselves in my skilled hands and those like YOU are left squirming in tatters at my feet still driveling statements such as the ' oh so typical example ' you gave above, LOL!
