  1. In 1492 Columbus sailed to the west following the Spanish armies liberation of occupied Spain. Over the 8 centuries Islam’s occupied Spain the Spanish armies adopted the practice of the and the Muslims were either to leave convert or die.

    In 1481 the inquisition began in Spain with more than 1300 Conversos put on trial until Jews were expelled in 1492. Columbus’s voyage began two days after Jews were given the choice to convert or leave.

    New evidence contained in his will and diary entries suggest that Columbus was a Conversos or a secret Jew. It has also been found that two Conversos, Louis De Santangel and Gabriel Sanchez, along with the prominent Rabbi Isaac Abarbanel may have personally paid for the journey rather than King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella.

    It is believed that Columbus was trying to find a safe haven for the Jews or perhaps travel to Asia to obtaining enough gold to finance a crusade to take back Jerusalem and rebuild the Temple. It is also believed that Columbus may have been searching for the lost tribes since he brought a Hebrew interpreter along.

  3. Interesting theory. However, I have a difficult time squaring Columbus’ alleged converso status with his brutal treatment of the indigenous people of the Bahamas and Hispaniola—including taking girls as young as 10 as concubines. In many ways he was the antithesis of what a mentsch should be.

  4. Who cares! If he was Jewish that would explain his natural intellect. Not saying Italians are not smart! But no one listened to Columbus in Genoa when he needed backing. Queen Isabella only wanted whatever gold he could find. But Columbus knew the world was round and wanted to prove it by sailing to India.

Adonai would not permit any creature to do such.
