    Thank goodness the world has such excellent historians. A few have pretty well proven Columbus was a crypto-Jew, AND that Jews backed his trip of exploration.

    Wow.

    This article says he wanted to find lands safer for Jews , who were being killed in Spain. Well, as we in the USA have religious freedom, I'd say he succeeded. Took awhile, but Madison and Jefferson made sure "no mind would be convinced against its will", as Shakespeare said.

    Should not be surprising. Jews are grossly over represented in all fields of discovery, arts, and sciences.

    Catalan, (Charles J.Merrill, Colom of Catalonia: Origins of Christopher Columbus Revealed Demers Book, 1928),

    Polish, (Fiona Govan. Christopher Columbus was son of Polish king, The Daily Telegraph, November 28, 2010).

    Portuguese, (Patracinio Ribeiro. O Caracter Misterioso de Colombo e o Problema du sua Nacionalidade, Combra. 1916).

    and perhaps even

    Norwegian (Borch Sannes, Tor. "Christopher Columbus: en europeer fra Norge?" Norsk maritimt forlag, 1991).
