The unbearable lightness of being Ashkenazi
Growing up with a mother from Tehran and a father from Poland, I never fit into any racial category. I didn't even know I was Ashkenazi, until Aryeh Deri decided that I was.
If my mother were still alive today, she would certainly be very amused by Aryeh Deri, who is including her in the statistics as an Ashkenazi woman (of European origin).
