Because I am focusing on the headline more than anything else.
On the Contrary
As Ahmedinajad may be of Jewish origin ~ surely this make some myths about him completely false:
1) He cannot be an anti-Semite ~ clearly he is more Semitic than most Israelis.
2) He does not hate Jews ~ but hates the ideology of Zionism.
Not in their own minds, since they regularly accuse renegade Judaic brethren of being "neo-Nazi anti-semites"!
Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was shown in a fake photo (faked by Netanyahu's people), wearing an SS uniform, shortly before he was assassinated by a talmid chacham.
Israel Shahak was labeled a neo-Nazi anti-semite, and so too are Professors Norman Finkelstein and Ilan Pappe, and many others.
Far more than any gentile who opposes them, they have supreme, murderous hatred for the Judaic they consider an "apikoros," "rodef" and/or "moser" ("heretic," "pursuer" and/or "informant"). All three are death penalty offenses in Orthodox Judaism.
If the Iranian president is in fact one of their tribe, then they will despise him even more than they already do.
There is no limit to their hatred, most especially for Judaics who turn against the Talmud, Kabbalah, "eretz Israel" or "klal Israel."

IS OF JUDAIC DESCENT

On the Contrary
Editor's caveat: considering the source, these allegations may be disinformation. We publish this article for your scrutiny. However, even if the Iranian president is indeed of Judaic descent, the psychological baggage appended to his public statements on controversial subjects is certainly suspect. Ahmadinejad's views on gas chambers and Israeli genocide could simply be a case of perceiving and articulating inconvenient truths.
The psychoanalysis of his enemies is tiresome in its claims to omniscience. He is not necessarily over-compensating for alleged "Jewish" descent. Some people speak the truth for a simple reason, because it is true. This may be difficult for Zionists and media dorks to appreciate.
revealed to have Jewish past
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's vitriolic attacks on the Jewish world hide an astonishing secret, evidence uncovered by The Daily Telegraph (UK) shows.

A photograph of the Iranian president holding up his identity card during elections in March 2008 clearly shows his family has Jewish roots. A close-up of the document reveals he was previously known as Sabourjian ~ a Jewish name meaning cloth weaver.
The short note scrawled on the card suggests his family changed its name to Ahmadinejad when they converted to embrace Islam after his birth.
The Sabourjians traditionally hail from Aradan, Mr Ahmadinejad's birthplace, and the name derives from "weaver of the Sabour", the name for the Jewish Tallit shawl in Persia. The name is even on the list of reserved names for Iranian Jews compiled by Iran's Ministry of the Interior.
Experts last night suggested Mr Ahmadinejad's track record for hate-filled attacks on Jews could be an overcompensation to hide his past.
Ali Nourizadeh, of the Centre for Arab and Iranian Studies, said: "This aspect of Mr Ahmadinejad's background explains a lot about him.
"Every family that converts into a different religion takes a new identity by condemning their old faith.
"By making anti-Israeli statements he is trying to shed any suspicions about his Jewish connections. He feels vulnerable in a radical Shia society."
A London-based expert on Iranian Jewry said that "jian" ending to the name specifically showed the family had been practising Jews.
"He has changed his name for religious reasons, or at least his parents had," said the Iranian-born Jew living in London. "Sabourjian is well known Jewish name in Iran."
A spokesman for the Israeli embassy in London said it would not be drawn on Mr Ahmadinejad's background. "It's not something we'd talk about," said Ron Gidor, a spokesman.
The Iranian leader has not denied his name was changed when his family moved to Tehran in the 1950s. But he has never revealed what it was change from or directly addressed the reason for the switch.
Relatives have previously said a mixture of religious reasons and economic pressures forced his blacksmith father Ahmad to change when Mr Ahmadinejad was aged four.
The Iranian president grew up to be a qualified engineer with a doctorate in traffic management. He served in the Revolutionary Guards militia before going on to make his name in hardline politics in the capital.
During this year's presidential debate on television he was goaded to admit that his name had changed but he ignored the jibe.
Mr Ahmadinejad has regularly leveled bitter criticism at Israel, questioned its right to exist and denied the Holocaust. British diplomats walked out of a UN meeting last month after the Iranian president denounced Israel's 'genocide, barbarism and racism.'
Benjamin Netanyahu made an impassioned denunciation of the Iranian leader at the same UN summit. "Yesterday, the man who calls the Holocaust a lie spoke from this podium," he said. "A mere six decades after the Holocaust, you give legitimacy to a man who denies the murder of six million Jews while promising to wipe out the State of Israel, the State of the Jews. What a disgrace. What a mockery of the charter of the United Nations."
Mr Ahmadinejad has been consistently outspoken about the Nazi attempt to wipe out the Jewish race. "They have created a myth today that they call the massacre of Jews and they consider it a principle above God, religions and the prophets," he declared at a conference on the holocaust staged in Tehran in 2006.
