    Samuel Pallache

    Jew Score:



    1550(?) – February 4, 1616

    (continued from the Jean Lafitte profile)

    So now, when our own kids will ask us about becoming pirates, we'll be prepared.

    "Sure, there were Jewish pirates," we'll say. "But they usually don't end well. Lafitte, for instance, was killed when he tried to raid Spanish ships."

    "What about Samuel Pallache?" our kids will ask.

    "Who is Samuel Pallache?"

    "The 16th century Jewish-Moroccan pirate and spy! He even was a double agent, working for BOTH the Spanish and the Dutch! And he pirated along the Moroccan coast! And when he was arrested, the Dutch prince bailed him out, that's how important he was!"

    "Hmmm. Where did you learn about this Pallache?"

    "Well, JewOrNotJew.com, of course!"

    Oh, those brilliant kids...

    Verdict: Jew.
