Sheryl followed a link from Pajamas Media this morning, which lead to a comment posted on Beautiful Atrocities, which lead to the astonishing revelation that Moammar Qadaffi had a Jewish Mother, at least according to this biography: Qaddafi was the youngest child from a nomadic Bedouin peasant family in the desert region of Sirte. His mother was a Jew who converted to Islam at age nine. This technically makes Qaddafi Jewish according to Judaism.
Is this true? I have no idea (but I imagine there are those who do). It does provide some insight into some of Qadaffi’s strange behaviour, but I don’t really want to go there. (One of his sons is apparently dating an Israeli actress.)
