I know this has been brought up before, but I thought this is an interesting read.

I hope you find it interesting as well!

Wow, very interesting. The evil man can do to one another is so tragic and senseless. Some of the comments are animalistic that I would not be surprised if they ate their young.

You know, I saw that in the news and didn't get why it was news. I'm pretty sure "Columbus was a Jew" has been fairly well known for a while . . .

I've heard it but I didn't think it was actually true. I suppose I should go read the article.

You'd be surprised at the look on peoples faces when I "suggest" it.

Shocked yup I never heard of this either. I had to read the article to my hubby too but he wasn't surprised.

I knew of the hypothesis, but they presented some information in the story that I hadn't heard before. Maybe it's newly-discovered material.

He had two or three Jews on his first expedition, and I seem to recall that he either noted Jewish holidays in his logbook or used the Jewish calendar to mark the days.
