The Ultimate Self-Hating Jew?

London's Daily Telegraph says Iran's stridently anti-Semitic President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was born Jewish and that his family changed its name and religion when he was four.

I have no idea how accurate the story is, but it sure makes for an interesting read.

We Are in Trouble

Michael Yon has spent more time in Iraq and Afghanistan than any other journalist. I pay serious attention to what he writes because, unlike some journalists, he describes the same reality I see when I'm in the same place at the same time. So when he says we're in serious trouble in Afghanistan, I strongly suggest you take him seriously.
