Headlines when Ahmed-de-Jinn visited New York in 2007, to declare that Iran had no homosexuals. At all.

Mahmoud Saborjhian the son of a blacksmith, was born near Garmsar in the village of Aradanon October 28, 1956. In the 1950s, Ahmadinejad and his family moved from Aradan to Tehran in search of more economic prosperity It was during this time period that the Saborjhian family changed its name to Ahmadinejad.

About name Sabourjhian information can not be seen in wikipedia in Danish or Farsi, just in English french and German. this is important because Saborjhian is a Jewish family name, in fact the jhian is used just by non Muslim and mostly by Jews, for example there are two ric Jewish family in iran with jhian in the end of their name, they are Badamjhian and Zorofjhian.

Mohsen Rezaei is a very prominent figure in Iran, ex chif commander of the Revolutionary Guard and currently a member of the Supreme Council, He is the first to mention Ahmadinejad’s Jewish background in a public statement. which caused a shut down of the internet in Iran, Iraq and part of Pakistan for many hours until the article that was writen in farsi and in his website was taken away, so internet was back again!

Original inquiries into the subject were spurred by Persian blogger Dr. Mehdi Khazali, who secondly raised the issue of the president’s heritage during Iran’s June presidential elections. (The blog has since been deleted by the Iranian government and he was even arrested The president was asked to identify his name during a debate. Challenged by his opponent, “My full name is Mehdi Karroubi. What is your full name?” Ahmadinejad responded, but without including Sabourjian as one of his surnames.

Ahmadinejad has admitted that his family changed its name when he was young, but has provided few details. According to Iranian government documents and family members, his original family name was Sabourjian or “cloth-weavers.” That name, although present among Muslim Iranians, often indicates a minority background. Despite the official position, another former family name alleged by Ahmadinejad watchers has been Sabaghian, or “cloth-dyers.” It doesn’t matter much which name it was, given the similarity of the jobs they describe: Traditionally in Iran, both the coloring and weaving of cloth were professions left to non-Muslims as religiously unclean activities.


Iran’s Jewish president. No wonder he is so eager to return to the homeland.

A photograph of the Iranian president holding up his identity card during elections in March 2008 clearly shows his family has Jewish roots because the 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 suggested Mr Ahmadinejad’s track record for hate-filled attacks on Jews could be an over compensation 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.” 

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. 

After the revelation of this thing A spokesman of 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. 


Many Iranians who support Ahmedinejad, like Mahmoud Sabourjhian, has said:

“As Ahmadinejad claims to be from a multi-generational Shiite family, the name change in the 1950’s was unusual. It is true that, as Ahmadinejad’s relatives have noted, there was steady migration from villages to Tehran during the late 19th and 20th centuries. But urbanizing families did not tend to change their names so radically — not even to conceal humble backgrounds.

If Ahmadinejad is indeed of Jewish descent, his family’s story represents a classic pattern for religious converts: Adopt Islam, leave the hometown where people might know you as a Jew, move to a new location where blending into the Muslim population is easier, take up different occupations, and, just in case anyone were to question their confessional fidelity, demonstrate zeal for Islam by attacking their former religion and other minority faiths”
