Dr. Sanchez describes how Sephardic Anusim among American Hispanics have been persecuted and oppressed socially, militarily and particularly religiously. He identifies the the pressures of a multiplicity of religious conversions which he coins, "conversions convulsion." These include forced conversions by the Roman Catholic Church and followed by a vast array of Protestant and Evangelical conversion manipulations. Dr. Sanchez stresses the point of the recent day conversion crises as many make a sincere attempt to return to their Sephardic Jewish ancestral roots and heritage. Dr. Sanchez eloquently describes four religious camps in which Hispanic Anusim are found today. Contrary to popular belief among Jews as well as Christians, he points to physical evidences as well as recent DNA test results to persuade his audience that massive numbers of American Hispanics do, indeed, have ancient ancestral roots connected to Jews of Spain and Iberia. One point that emerges with a fierce passion is the longing among tens of thousands of American Anusim to make Aliyah and become full-fledged citizens of their ancestral homeland of Israel.
