    Lol. Well that may explain it
    Fascinating. This is an interesting psychological phenomenon that can occur where people turn vehemently against their heritage in a way to gain acceptance by the mainstream. Their negativity turns into obsessive hatred.

    If anything this just goes to show how much our media cherry picks lines without the reasoning for the line being said. Maybe Mr. "Amndijahammmab" doesn't hate Jews and was simply responding the wiping the sovereignty of Israel off the world map if Israel attacks for no reason.

    Sabourjian - From what I understand, sabor denotes a "thread painter" in Farsi and is connected to the carpet-weaving industry. In addition, jian denotes a "worker" in Turkish. There is a significant Turkoman minority in Iran.

    Ahmadinejad - The familiar surname Ahmadinejad is actually an English language contrivance. Translated properly into English from Farsi/Urdu the name would be rendered as two words - Ahmadi Nejad. This roughly translates as "Son of the Most High". Some say that the surname Ahmadinejad was chosen after the family converted to Islam. But converted from what?

    I do know that the family surname was changed from Sabourjian to Ahmadinejad. I do not know why or understand precisely what each name means linguistically. I personally tend to doubt that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has a Jewish heritage.

    This Ahmadinejad speculation reminds me somewhat of Reinhard Heydrich. Heydrich was second only to Himmler in the SS and co-shares responsibility with Himmler for the death camps. As Heydrich was ascending in rank, there were rumors in Germany and within the German military that he had some Jewish blood. It is speculated that Heydrich responded (overcompensated) to these rumors via the extreme ruthlessness and viciousness towards the Jewish populations that fell under his control.

    Not comparing Ahmadinejad himself to Heydrich, only the possible parallels of Jewish heritage and recompense in their respective lineage.

    You think Bobby Fischer was trying to gain acceptance by the mainstream? The guy was crazy and I'm guessing much of his anti this and anti that behavior stemmed more from a combination of him being more than slightly nuts and various governments giving him a hard time vs any ploy to win public favor. I don't think that guy cared about being popular in the least.

    You have a point there. Mr Fischer most likely had mother hatred as a cause for his anti-Semitic obsessions, combined with declining mental health.
