    They are called Sephardic Jews, the thing is that the Jews are not a race, and ethnic groups, or a nationality, they are followers of a religious known as Judaism. and most of the’Jews” in Spain were forced to become catholic and despite that they were discriminated.

    There were several ships with Jews that went to the USA and they were rejected by the USA Government, and Cuba was willing to accept them, and later on they rejected the visas, and then the Dominican government accepted them, the USA did not want to accept them because they were considered as black and they would have been forced to place them in Ghettoes along with Afro American

    Marx was an atheist, and he is called a Jew

    Sosúa: A Refuge for Jews in the Dominican Republic (Sosúa: Un Refugio de Judíos en la República Dominicana)

    Most of them were sephardic jews

    The Dominican Republic was a haven for Jews fleeing the Nazis. A museum project could tell that story.

    Ironically the man who approved this settlement in Sosua was a brutal dictator who became a friend of Franco, and he played with the allied and the Nazis and then with the Soviets, and he was an anti communist.

    In fact, do not the Jews take their name from Judah, not a religion but a country.

    Kautsky explains all that.

    When the rulers, warriors and officials of Judah were taken by the Babylonians as hostages into Babylonia, they had no longer anyone to rule and no subordinates, no slaves, and no country. All they had was their religion, which we call today Judaism. Which is why the term Jew has been conflated with the religion.
    This became, in exile, a new religion. The Jews left behind in Judah, being the harmless peasantry, were freed by the Babylonians from the slavery their Jewish masters, now in exile, had subjected them to. The religion of these peasants remained that of the monolatrist, semi-polytheist, old form of the religion of the Hebrews.
    When Cyrus freed the Jewish aristocracy, it returned to Judah, and unleashed religious tyranny on the peasantry, subjecting all Jews to the monotheism their exiled priesthood had developed while in exile. The priests took over, further conflating the religion with the nation.

    Recently PBS America broadcast a great two part documentary called: ‘Europe’s Forgotten Dictatorships’.

    Part one is about the regime of the colonels in Greece; while part two is about fascist Portugal.

    This documentary disproves the claim that the Allies in WW2 were anti-fascism. This is because Portugal; Greece; and Spain (while they were right-wing dictatorships) were close allies of the West during the Cold War.

    If there was a Jesus at all, he was most likely a violent bandit chief from Galilee, along with two other bands, led by a Simon and a Judas, and anything but peaceful. They were dead long before the Christians came along and wrote stories to suit their own agenda, using the names of conveniently dead Galilean chiefs.
