Columbus was a hook-nose, kosher-eating Jew, and everyone on the in knows it.
He sold himself as a Goy to get the cash for travel. That and his want to avoid the systematic ethnic cleansing project I was running at the time. Really, do you think a non-jew could have arranged all that financing?
His wife was generally a baleboste, but her continuing kvetch pushed him from mentsh to a mishegas. Hence it was that yenta what inspired Columbus to get as far away from her as possible. It was hiding from her the yiddisher kop found the new world.
