Jewish Crypsis – Crypto-Jews – Part 1

Examining crypto-jews – also known as secret jews, hidden jews, New Christians, conversos, marranos, and anusim.

Crypsis, Wikipedia:

In ecology, crypsis is the ability of an organism to avoid observation or detection by other organisms.

Crypto-jews are an open secret. Here are two examples in recent news.

‘Hidden Jews of Poland’ visit Israel, by Rabbi Levi Brackman, 1 Sep 2013, Ynetnews:

Sixteen young Polish Jews, many of whom have only recently discovered their Jewish roots, arrived in Israel last month for a special seminar organized by Shavei Israel, an organization that aims to strengthen the connection between descendants of Jews and the State of Israel and the Jewish people.

“There is a growing thirst among young Poles with Jewish roots to learn more about their Jewish religious and cultural heritage,” said Shavei Israel Chairman Michael Freund.

“This awakening would have been unthinkable just 25 or 30 years ago, but since the downfall of Communism, an increasing number of Poles have sought to reclaim and affirm their Jewish identity. We owe it to them to assist them in any way that we can.”

Freund added that “with the start of the new Jewish year just a few weeks away, it is fitting that these young Poles have come to Israel to rekindle their bond with the Jewish people. They represent the future of Polish Jewry, which despite decades of suffering and persecution is now beginning to thrive.

“There can be no sweeter revenge for what was done to us seven decades ago in Poland than to reconnect as many of these young Polish Jews as possible with Israel and the Jewish people.”

Today, there are approximately 4,000 Jews registered as living in Poland, but experts suggest there may be tens of thousands of other Jews in Poland who to this day are either hiding their identities or are simply unaware of their family heritage.

In recent years, a growing number of such people, popularly known as the “hidden Jews of Poland,” have begun to return to Judaism and to the Jewish people.

Quoting Venezuela’s ‘anti-Semitic’ leader admits Jewish ancestry:

In an interesting twist, [Nicolás] Maduro, the political successor of the late president Hugo Chávez, told the press last week that he himself was descended from Sephardic Jewish ancestors.

“My grandparents were Jewish, from a [Sephardic] Moorish background, and converted to Catholicism in Venezuela… The mother of [Minister of Communication and Information] Ernesto Villegas also comes from a similar background,” Maduro said last week

The readers’ comments at AoT are informative. Of particular note are the comments of the erstwhile crypto-jew onwatch/Stuart, whose great concern that Whites should not exclude jews helps demonstrate why they must be excluded.

The main focus in this installment is on the large number of crypto-jews who trace their origins to The Inquisition in Spain, more than 500 years ago. The figure most associated with that inquisition is Tomás de Torquemada, Wikipedia:

Tomás de Torquemada, O.P. (1420 – September 16, 1498) was a 15th-century Spanish Dominican friar and the first Grand Inquisitor in Spain’s movement to restore Christianity among its populace in the late 15th century. As well as being Grand Inquisitor, Torquemada was also the confessor to Isabella I of Castile. He is notorious for his zealous campaign against the crypto-Jews and crypto-Muslims of Spain. He was one of the chief supporters of the Alhambra Decree, which expelled the Jews from Spain in 1492.

He was the nephew of a celebrated theologian and cardinal, Juan de Torquemada,[2] who was the grandson of a converso

Alhambra Decree, at Wikipedia, provides an idea just how well-off the jews had been with the muslims:

Beginning in the 8th century, Muslims had conquered and settled most of the Iberian Peninsula. Jews, who had lived in these regions since Roman times, were considered “People of the Book” and given special status and often thrived under Muslim rule.[3] The tolerance of the Muslim Moorish rulers of al-Andalus attracted Jewish immigration, and Jewish enclaves in Muslim Iberian cities flourished as places of learning and commerce.

One example of special treatment that the jewish persecution narrative serves to justify:

As of November 2012, Sephardic Jews have been given the right to automatic Spanish nationality without the requirement of residence in Spain. Prior to November 2012, Sephardic Jews already had the right to obtain Spanish citizenship after a reduced residency period of two years (versus ten years for foreigners).

So you think you’re a Crypto-Jew?, by Amy Klein, 18 May 2009, Jewish Telegraphic Agency:

Technically, a converso refers to a person who underwent a conversion himself/herself, but the term has been used to refer to their descendants as well. A Crypto-Jew, or secret Jew, is someone who practices his/her Judaism secretly while openly professing another religion. “Anusim” is a Hebrew term for people who were forced to convert against their will, while “meshumadim” refer to willing converts. The term “marrano” is more complex, and there are many different histories for the term. The one that makes the most sense to me is a combination of two Hebrew words: “mumar”(convert) and “anús” (compelled one). Marrano means swine and was meant as a pejorative term used by Jews who did not convert to describe Jews who did.

That last sentence conflicts with the usual etymology of marrano offered in mainstream/non-jew sources like Wikipedia.


[Marrano] is the insulting term Spanish antisemites gave to the anusim.


Originally the term was used by common people. The insult was mostly racist, as people viewed – in a superstitious and prejudiced way – the descendants of forced New Christians as a racial group identifiable by their bad denture, which allegedly proved their sinful soul.

Marrano acquired connotations of “filthy-dirty” (sucio) and “unscrupulous” (sin escrúpulos) during the heyday of the Spanish Inquisition, when the term was used to impugn the character of recalcitrant crypto-Jews.

The podcast will be broadcast and available for download on Tuesday at 9PM ET.

    Crypto Jews who have kept their Jewish identity hidden for centuries should be considered as sleeper cells for their people. They might suddenly “rediscover” their identity and then render services to their people at the cost of their host nation.

    The term mumar is derived from mor meaning “change”. The term meshumad is derived from mashad meaning “to destroy, or annihilate”. Meshumad therefore means “the destroyed one”. In the Babylonian Talmud the term mumar is used, in the Jerusalem Talmud the term meshumad is used. It is assumed that meshumad was the original term , but changed in the Babylonian Talmud not to give offense to the church (again a kind of “crypsis”).

    Apply Tans’ Rule,”jews invert reality”.
    jews are not a persecuted race, they are a privileged and even pampered race.
    In Roman times, jews were exempt from military service (what a tremendous benefit ), jews were exempt from worshiping the Roman Gods(countless Christians died because they didn’t have that benefit). In Medieval Times, jews were exempt from Christian Courts and punishment. They would go to a jewish court that would just punish them by moving the offender to another town.
    The jews never tell the full truth about the Spanish expulsion. It has largely been excised from our history books. There weren’t that many indigenous jews in the Iberian Peninsula prior to 1300. In about 1300 a flood of jewish refugees came into the Iberian Kingdoms from Anatolia ( modern Turkey ). They were fleeing the Mongol invasion of Anatolia ( Mongols didn’t believe any of this ‘God’s chosen race’ nonsense). The Mongols just saw jews as petty traders, to be slaughtered with other valueless peoples ( Mongols only valued artisans). So the jews, cowards that they are, fled to the opposite end of the Mediterranean.
    In Iberia, Castile and other kingdoms, they were welcome with open arms, being the ‘chosen race’. They were given free land, free farms, free homes and tax exemption. Then they started their confiscatory usury, swindling the people out of their homes and money. The kingdoms of Iberia were torn by massive riots of the people outraged by the jewish swindling, all throughout the 1300’s and 1400’s. Finally the rulers of those kingdoms had to expel the jews or face total insurrection.
    Instead of slaughtering the jews, they were expelled ( because of their special status as ‘God’s chosen).
    jews have enjoyed so much special treatment for over 2,000 years and very little of the persecution they constantly whine about.
    (When have you ever seen a holocaust survivor that shows any signs of abuse, missing limbs, digits , scars or marks of any form of abuse ?)

    These persecution stories that the jews tell, serve at least two purposes.
    1) They get ppl to feel sorry for them and consequently give them a lot of special consideration and privileges.
    2) It gives the jews self-justification to swindle, cheat, abuse, exploit and otherwise hurt other races. “oh they persecuted us! It’s ok to cheat and lie to them”.

  6. Lurker

    Fred – following on from 2) it also encourages a siege mentality amongst the jews, circling the wagons.
