Published on Aug 6, 2013We are not Southern Europeans. We are not fake imitations of Europeans. Our ancestors were forced to speak Spanish through the process of genocide.

Ancient Goths, i.e. Ashkenazi Jews and Spanish Christians (branches of the nomadic tribes of Germanic peoples referred to collectively as the Goths) were involved in the slavery and genocide of indigenous people in America and Africa for centuries following the reconqest of Spain by Isabella and Ferdinand the Catholic.

The Granada War (Spanish: Guerra de Granada) was a series of military campaigns between 1482 and 1492, during the reign of the Catholic Monarchs (los Reyes Católicos) Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon, against the Nasrid dynasty's Emirate of Granada. It ended with the defeat of Granada and its annexation by Castile, ending all Islamic rule on the Iberian peninsula (al-Andalus).

Ferdinand is today best known for his role in inaugurating the discovery of the New World, since he and Isabella sponsored the first voyage of Christopher Columbus in 1492.

Both branches have infused themselves into major religious and world affairs.
