SORT BY Relevancy
The crypto Jews we are hearing about today are descendants of those Sephardic Jews of Spain and Portugal who continued to observe customs and rituals of Judaism in secret although having converted to Catholicism in the 15th century because of persecution and violence. Many also converted to avoid the exile decreed by the Spanish and Portuguese kings, which would have forced them, as practicing Jews, to leave their countries and settle elsewhere. Although practicing Catholics, however, these New Christians, remaining in Spain, were subject to persecution by the Inquisition and the local population. Many left for parts of Western Europe, like the Netherlands or Great Britain or to the Ottoman Empire where they could return to Judaism. Others found their way to Spain’s and Portugal’s colonies in the New World, where, with the Inquisition establishing itself, they needed to continue hiding Jewish practice.
Today, many of their descendants, in the U.S. and and Latin American countries are realizing that some customs still practiced by their families, most of whom are Christian, indicates that their ancestors could have been Sephardic Jews. In some cases, there are families that continue observing Jewish rituals in secret, through five centuries to the present.
Our panelists today have a lively interest in this, as people with this very same heritage or as scholars studying the subject. Today, they’ll be sharing what they know with us.
Guest: Fernando Hernandez, author of "The Cubans". We will discuss the impact that Cuban Jews (Jewbans) made in Cuba and in the USA; Ruth Behar, Geladio (Gerry) Grinberg, Baruj Salinas, George Feldenkreis among others.
Our sponsor today is Josie Hernandez, Real Estate Agent, Greater Miami Area
Today on the Brian The Hammer Show:
-Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban said he would have taken a different path with forcing Donald Sterling to sell the Los Angeles Clippers. He said on a SiriusXM show Thursday that he would have voted to let Sterling keep the team if it had come down to the NBA Governor's Board decision. He acknowledged that he would probably be the only owner to vote in such a way, but said he doesn't care.... So the question is: Aren't we all prejudice? Join the conversation today!

"By the Klan's moral framework, all whites are categorically superior to all Blacks in every way; hence its fanatical commitment to maintaining a social, political, and economic power structure that reflects that belief.
The Klan's savage tactical handiwork is well known; their most depraved acts fall under the heading of "lynching." Mobs of Caucasian males hunt down innocent Black men, women, and children and commit sadistic acts of ritual torture, including sexual mutilations, whippings, burnings alive, decapitations, flesh and eye gougings, amputations, bone crushings, point-blank shootings, stabbings, tree, bridge, or lamppost hangings, and horse or vehicle rope-draggings -- all culminating in their scavenging for souvenirs amid the desecrated, dismembered or scorched remains of the Black victims.
It is usually stated as fact that the Klan was historically "against Blacks, Jews, and Catholics," when in fact the KKK had many Jewish members, sympathizers, and supporters.
As whites, Jews were an accepted and important part of Southern society and thus were NEVER targets of Nathan Bedford Forrest's original Ku Klux Klan. From early on, Jews enjoyed a specific and unchallenged niche in the slave-based economy. In fact, Jews, like all true-blue Southern whites, understood and believed that without an organized, deliberate campaign of terroristic violence, Blacks would quickly advance from downtrodden plantation laborer to independent commercial competitor, marketing their own labor and produce free from the management or agency of whites. The post-slavery rise of at least sixty all-Black towns attested to the Black desire for independence and self-development. Centuries of slavery had not crushed this yearning."

The Pope's visit to the Holy Land is not pleasing to Ultra-Orthodox Jews.
Kinda makes one wonder why. Me, I believe it is because the Pope is going to want to visit Gaza and West Bank to meet and speak to his followers. I feel a priest, rabbi, preacher, imam, should be allowed to come and minister to the spiritual needs of their people.
Ultra-orthodox Jews beleive that is n't right. Beside that they think Jesus Christ was a Jew. Most of the rest of the religious world think not. I think he was an Arab.
Also, Lost cities is a story and a list of cities destroyed by the Israeli thugs 1947-8. The thievery is still going on.

Mark Cuban wants us to believe that since "we all hold prejudices" it's hypocritical to be critical in this type of discourse. Cuban's actually smarter than that, but don't tell him I told you.
A crew of ex-NFL players are suing the league claiming they were lied to about their injuries and the long term ramifications of the medicine they took. It's shameful stuff (the allegations, if true), but perhaps even more shamefully, not surprising at all.
