Borgia Family and ancient Jewish Roots .... according to Semi-Gotha

When searching the roots of the Borgia Family I stumbled across this website that states the Borgia Family is of ancient Jewish Origin..... Jewish Nobilty

Borgia, Spanish and Italian lines of the family descended from Pope Alexander VI, originally Rodrigo Langolo. Created Dukes of Gandia. No names given of current members although both survive.

Above the name "Borgia" in this list of ancient Jewish families of the Semi Gotha is the name "Borghese". Was Pope Paul V another Jewish Pope ? Maybe many of the Popes, like St Peter were also Jewish.
