If you haven’t heard of it already, then you’ve probably been living under a rock (or a sukkah?). The news media is ablaze with a (possibly) tall tale that Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad might be a Jew. Apparently, his parents changed their surname to Ahmadinejad after converting to Islam. The name before? Sabourjian…a Iranian Jewish last name.
So what if Ahmadinejad is Jewish? Does this change anything? Does it really shed any light on his deep twisted need to erase Israel and talk trash about the Holocaust?

A lovely man to welcome to the family of Klal Yisrael. Rabanit, I propose you invite him over for Shabbat dinner & serve him your famous Green Dominican Goo!
It doesn't change anything. We are normal people who have our share of wackjobs. Sad, but true.
Not an impossible thing. There was about 200 years where several Jewish towns in Iran were forced to become Muslims. When the rejime changed many of the Benei Anusim returned to Judaism since they had been secretly practicing it for that time. Yet, all did not.
I am with Jack, Ben Anus or not his work against a Jewish life goes against Halakhah thus he is an enemy.
