newsflash: moshe ahmadinejad is mahmoud again

desert peace via whatreallyhappened

it was odd how so many people threw this guy under the bus when they thought he was a jew. we like the way that president ahmadinejad tells it like it is whether he is a jew or not.

if more muslims were like him and more jews were like rabbi weiss and there was no christian zionism the world would be a much better place.

in case you missed it, a couple of days ago the london daily telegraph had a big splash: "mahmoud ahmadinejad revealed to have jewish past."

some "experts" studied the writing on the id card in this photograph and they spun an elaborate tale about how his family's real surname: sabourjian, is a common jewish surname meaning cloth weaver. but the family had to change their religion to islam as well as their surname to fit in the big city of tehran.

then today the guardian with their own experts in "ahmadinejad has no jewish roots," expose the telegraph's story to be false.
Moreover, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's mother is a Seyyede. This is a title given to women whose family are believed to be direct bloodline descendants of Prophet Muhammad.
One has to be born into a Seyyed family: the title is never given to Muslims by birth, let alone converts. This makes it impossible for Ahmadinejad's mother to have been a Jew.
but why was any of this news anyway. was this some kind of trick that backfired?

UPDATE: iran responds
