Thanks, Tilly also pointed out my overstatements in a private message. I guess for me it's like saying that a) the U.S. Senate had no direct authority over Hollywood hiring practices and therefore b) the McCarthy hearings were not to blame for writers, directors, and actors getting blacklisted. In my view, "a" is true and "b" is not and the situation with the Inquisition strikes me as similar in this regard. Also, I guess it depends on one's definition of a Converso - outwardly they were Christians and one of the prime targets of the Inquisition. I would regard the persecution of the Conversos as persecution of Jews regardless of their pretended (or in some cases, real) conversion to Christianity.
