...The Sound Of Heads Exploding...

CNN: "Was Columbus a Jew?"

Based on the info as given in article, kinda looks that way. The more I learn, the less I know.

So Columbus being a Jew means we hate him even more than we do now, right?

Columbus sailed the ocean blue
The dirty stinking little Jew.

Good thing that Ferdinand and Isabella didn't find out!

Personally, I like him more now.

What's not to like?

Such a mensch!!

Roberta X said...

Y'know -- Feynman, Einstein, the inventor of the egg cream and now Columbus, just for starters. I'm not much for group identity but who wouldn't be proud to claim those guys as their homeboys?

Dave H said...

Well, maybe. But would you also want to claim a bunch of Hollywood executives?

My first reaction was "So what?", my second reaction, like Turk's first post, was "Good thing that Ferdinand and Isabella didn't find out!" They were chasing all the Jews out of the newly reunited Spain, and after taking all their money, and they used that money to finance Columbus' voyages.
