I don’t know how reliable this is, but evidently you call him Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Yup, that’s right the Iranian leader who has called for Israel to be “wiped off the map” and has time and again denied the holocaust, may in fact have been born a Jew. Maybe his parents forgot to mention it.

This knowledge was obtained from a 2008 photograph of Ahmadinejad displaying his ID card in a photograph. According to the article in the London Telegraph, Ahmadinejad’s real last name was Sabourjian, which translated is an old Jewish way of say ‘cloth weaver’. The family converted to the Islamic faith and moved to Tehran sometime after Mahmoud’s birth in 1956. The altering of ones name when they change faith is customary in Iran. Nonetheless it is said that his billingsgates against the Israeli state, the Jewish faith, and the atrocity of the holocaust could be his way of trying to conceal his roots.

According to his wiki (which is always a source that has to be taken with a grain of salt though) one biographer dispells the leader’s alleged Jewish origins and that his last name was ‘Sabaghian’, which means ‘dye masters’ in Persian .

If this is true this is awkward to say the least. If many of his most ardent conservative supporters were not aware of this I wonder how they feel? Though this is not unheard of among forces hostile towards Jews. Hitler himself was believed to have Jewish blood in him, some say his Paternal grandfather was Jewish.
