Spain Repeals Expulsion (1991)
Well, it's been 16 years since Spain repealed their 500 year-old expulsion of the Jews in 1492.
Generations of American kids only knew that date by having been taught that "Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 14 hundred 92." The Inquisition and the expulsion of the Jews from Spain never, at least in my day, made it into the history books.
There is, of course a heavy connection between Columbus and the expulsion of the Jews from Spain:
"On On March 31, 1492, the Edit of Expulsion was signed. The deadline for Jews to leave Spain was August 3, 1492, which was, ironically, the Ninth of Av (Tisha B'av) on the Jewish calendar, a day of fasting commemorating the destruction of both Temples in Jerusalem.
Columbus and his crew boarded their vessels before midnight, and on the August 3rd sailed before sunrise."-more.

When I consider what little bit of the Spanish Inquisition actually makes it into secular history books in the US, that it was another "final solution" revisionistically is skipped in favor of dunning Roman Catholicism, I get you point Bones. As avarice drove the Inquisition, fear drove Spain from supporting the multinational force in Iraq after Madrid. zalmen, I can appreciate your perspective. I'd invite you to give Bones another chance, as most of the info on the link is posted by an Indian, from a speculative text written, apparently by a goy; not writtne by Bones himself.
