The Telegraph has confirmed an earlier report by an Iranian blogger who was arrested for calling Ahmadinejad a converted Jew.
The newspaper managed to enlarge Ahmadinejad’s photo with his ID card which shows his previous name, Sabourjian, which is indeed Jewish. Failing to discover information so damaging to the Iranian president is a major blunder on the part of Iranian intelligence agencies.
As a convert from Judaism, Ahmadinejad has no immigration rights under the Israeli Law of Return.
Ahmadinejad’s behavior is nothing shocking. Scores of other former Jews, including J Street and Peace Now, are equally hateful toward Israel.
