His family's original surname, Sabourjian, is a Jewish name that means cloth weaver. That makes him a Persian-Jewish-Muslim. Unless you think he lost his "jewishness" when his family converted to Islam. http://www.haaretz.com/jewish-world/news/is-ahmadinejad-trying-to-hide-his-jewish-roots-by-bashing-israel-1.6781 So how can a Persian-Jew be antisemite, Ruth? Don't you mean self-hating Jew? And what ethnicity do you think he is? Persian or Jewish? If this rule of yours that was "well established more than a thousand years before the concept of race as we know it " is so clear in your mind, why are Rabbis and scholars still arguing over this age-old issue of what constitutes one's Jewishness? Once your head is done spinning and you (hopefully) decide to educate yourself on the question, why don't you pick up a copy of Schlomo Sand's The Invention of the Jewish People ~ watch your temper though, he's a Jewish historian at Tel Aviv university... and the son of Polish Jewish survivors of the Holocaust. Happy trails.
