What Do You Call an Iranian Leader Who was Born Jewish, but Now denies tyhe Holocaust?

White Supremacist (Dave Chapelle) – watch more funny videos

The blind Black Klansman from the Dave Chapelle Show Suddenly Comes To Mind

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.

Angela Bunt, of Buntology; created a recent documentary of the Wormtown 2009 Festy in Greenfield, MA I too was there (only for a day due to the fact I had to work the next day)on the weekend of September 18-20. Really heady stuff, cool jams, and an altogether vibrant scene.

Anyway she made this short documentary capturing the atmosphere and hot performances there from such bands as ‘Playin Dead’ and even has some chat time with the ‘Rubble Bucket Orchestra’ (both performances I was present at). The below video is just a five minute sample of the thirty-four minute documentary.

Am I the Only One Who Finds it Ironic that a Guy From a Show Called "Growing Pains" is Railing Against the Theory of Evolution?

In internet,literature,Religion,science,television,Video on September 23, 2009 by Editor Z

Nearly a century and a half after the publication of Charles Darwin’s ‘The Origin of Species’, the debate over evolution goes on with no end in sight.

Now former Growing Pains star turned ubber evangelical Christian Kirk Cameron is promoting an effort to give away free copies of the book, but with a 50 page introduction that lays out the creationist theory, as well as allegations that Hitler liked Darwin, Darwin was racist, and hated women. Now the video of one Romanian woman is making the rounds as she rebuts Cameron’s claims that American is under assault by atheists.
