The Ashkenazi Jews have the highest IQ of any group in the world.(The Bell Curve)

Fortunately, 80% of the Jewish immigrants to the USA are Ashkenazi.

Let's see if I have this right. 2012 less 600 years is 1412. So that means the Spanish expelled Jews were among some of the first non-indigenous colonists to the new world (post Vikings and post Chinese - of course).

That is kind of interesting. Although a recent family tree show did a special on people of Latin ancestry and found some of the early Spanish Conquistadors were families with recent Jewish ties who had fled the Spanish Inquisition (1478 to 1834).

Those Jews were believed to be descendants of a Jewish man who left Europe and settled in south America about 600 years ago - likely among the hundreds of thousands of Jews expelled by Spain in 1492, and possibly among those who sailed with Christopher Columbus,

The Ninth of Av of the year 1492
was the date designated for all Jews
of Spain to leave.

That was the day Columbus
set sail for the new world.

The Spanish conquistadors could have included soldiers descended from Spanish Jews. They could have impregnated Indians in the southwest.

Occam’s Razor and all that

Here comes the BS about a single gene that can actually be found in other places around the world but is largely insignificant.

But that won’t stop the LDS’rs from saying “There’s proof! We existed before on North America”.

No, there isn’t. You made a conscious decision to follow a religion and it has zip, nada and nothing to do with bloodline.

I’ve seen a report like this a couple times a year for the last 5 years.

Bunk...

A lot of Spanish Jews ended up in the New World (since the Old World wasn’t too hospitable for them). Many of the first settlers in Columbia were of Jewish descent; and as many as 25% of the first Spanish settlers in Mexico City (once it got rebuilt) were of Jewish descent.

If you were of Jewish descent (even if you were a practicing Catholic), and Spanish, there were not a lot of places to go; and the New World looked pretty good.

A great many, beginning with Columbus' first voyage, sailing delayed by a day due to a jammed harbor caused by the expulsion. However mostly South America and the Carribean. A total stray aside, the first Jewish immigrants are usually dated to 1654 in New Amsterdam. Fleeing Brazil. I guess that's enough time to father a tribe, but imo not likely.

Interesting topic. Crazy title, which I guess is what sells books, but Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean, a couple years old, is a pretty interesting history of post Inquisition Jewish trade routes in the Mediterrean and Carribean/South America. A little bit about pirates too.

I would correct that to say "a Jewish man with an overabundance of MOJO" ;-)

I could be mistaken, but I believe he didn’t leave till the 10th due to harbor congestion. The 9th was the planned departure.

Well, you're probably right, but thanks for killing my vision of building a casino.

All nonsense. The Jews expelled from Spain were Sephardim, the Ashkenasi lived in Russia and Eastern Europe.
