Subject:        Questions on TMOV

I would like to ask you some questions as an amateur reader of TMOV:

Shylock's mentions:

"Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses,
affections, passions?"

What is meant by each of them? Why does he use these human features and
not others?

Is there any connection with this fact and the Conquest of America?

Thanks in advance
