History of the Jews in Spain: Visigoth rule (from Wikipedia)
Look, what can i say?....In the end it turned out to be the right decision (to hassle the Jews). They allied with the Moorish Kings, and they even try to buy Gibraltar. the bridge. Has any body seen the bridge? Oh, God. Where's that confounded bridge? ....flashback.....so...the jews in Iberia lived somewhat better and remained with some opportunities to better themselves (maybe) compared to the East and other countries in Europe. They would have allied with the Moor Kings of Africa just like they allied the moor Kings of Andalusia?, south of spain and thy would would have had to kill them also. Is too much killing, so they started to get kicked out.
You know that the Jews in Spain spoke, like a German Jew would speak Yiddish, a Sephardic Jew had a language like that which was mix with Castillian.
The point is, I think that under the circumstances..these Goths were... benevolent ?
Was it really that bad?
