Check out what I just found in my mailbox:
Uh? Am I suffering from Déjà vu?!
I though that this was Madeleine Albright’s story… Quick check – yes it was! Second check – wow, its true for Kerry too. Again?! WTF?!
Don’t these top officials undergo a very extensive FBI clearance process before being nomination for that kind of top positions? How could they not know something as basic has their family origins?
Or did they know? If they did – why did they hide it?
Or are they making up a Jewish heritage to brown-nose the Israel Lobby just a little deeper?
You tell me:
It was only recently that Albright, who turns 75 next month, said she had the time and courage to explore her own complicated past. An Episcopalian who was raised Catholic, she discovered at age 59 — via reporting by a Washington Post journalist and during the vetting process to serve in President Bill Clinton’s administration — that she was born to Jewish parents. She also found out that more than a dozen of her family members died in the Holocaust, including three grandparents in concentration camps. Her father, a former Czech diplomat, and her mother never told her the family secret.
Kerry first found out about his Jewish ancestry in 2004, when he was running for president against George W. Bush. Both his father’s parents were born Jews and converted to Christianity because of anti-Semitism, and they changed their name from Cohen to Kerry when they immigrated to the United States.
Oy vey! Looks like these guys are true martyrs!!
Too much, LOL! I wonder how many Americans believe this bullshit :-)
