Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean – A7 Exclusive Features – Israel News – Israel National News

Apparently, there is a book titled Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean: How a Generation of Swashbuckling Jews Carved Out an Empire in the New World in Their Quest for Treasure, Religious Freedom–and Revenge which details how many of the Pirates of the Caribbean were actually Jews fleeing the Spanish Inquisition. ¬†Of course, this makes perfect sense, since the Pirates were funded by enemies of Spain it only makes sense that Jews would be among those supporters.

This book does not provide proof that Christopher Colombus was Jewish, it seems clear that he was at least sympathetic to the Jewish plight of religious freedom.
