Krauthammer's Law, Revisited

In 2006, Charles Krauthammer expounded his Law, everyone who is anyone is Jewish until proven otherwise. But even Charlie himself must be astounded by this one: according to the Telegraph, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, the despot of Iran and would-be scourge of Israel, was born to Jewish parents.
A close-up of the document reveals he was previously known as Sabourjian – a Jewish name meaning cloth weaver... 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.
Well, stranger things have been alleged.

Hat tip to James Taranto (who is, of course, Jewish).
