One Response to “”

  1. Scott Sherris Says:

    Hi, I received a bizarre bit of antisemitic email today from family that was disguised as a Jewish pride piece. After doing some research, I learned how insidious it really was. After doing a search on the internet, I found it reproduced on your blog.

    The email I got talks in part about the number of famous people that we never knew were Jewish. It included Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Josef Stalin, and Winston Churchill. These falsehoods have been promoted through anti-semitic sources to “prove” there was a Jewish cabal orchestrating World War Two against the poor, innocent Germans. Through this email, reposted by dozens of proud Jews, they can now point to our websites as “proof” of their made up facts.

    Roosevelt’s great-great-great-great-great grandfather *was* named Claes Rosenwelt. But while names with “Rosen” are commonly Jewish today, there’s no indication that he was Jewish. His last name means “Rose field”. While it is entirely possible that Claes was Jewish, there are virtually no records about his life. FDR used to joke that Claes was probably a horse thief, since his family knew nothing of his past life.

    FDR’s mother, Sara (not the more Jewish spelling Sarah) was not Jewish or Sephardic. She came from a long line of French Huguenots. Her ancestry is traced through Phillipe de Lannoy who arived in the Americas in 1621 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delano_family)

    Eisenhower’s parents were Pennsylvania Dutch. They had biblical names (his father was David Jacob, his grandfather Jacob, his grandmother Rachel), typical of the Amish residents of Lancaster, PA where he was born. There is nothing in his history to indicate any kind of Jewish background, other than his name. See his ancestry here: http://www.eisenhower.archives.gov/idadavid.htm
    Again, it’s possible that some Eisenhauer 500 years ago was Jewish, but certainly not his father.

    The idea that Stalin was Jewish is the worst. His birth name, Dzugashvili, despite the way it sounds, is unrelatred to the word “Jew” and does not mean “Son of a Jew” in Russian. Is is derived from the Georgian town name of Jugaani, where his family is from. His grandparents were known to be Orthodox Christian. (The surname ending “-vich” means son of, by the way)

    Little is known of his first wife, Ekaterina Svanidze. However, her brother did marry a Jewish opera singer.

    If you do a Google search on any of these people (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=eisenhower+Jewish), (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=Roosevelt+Jewish), (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=Stalin+Jewish), you will find, almost exclusively, vicious anti-semitic websites.

    We love to be proud of people who are Jewish, but the idea that these three were Jewish was cooked up to “prove” that a Jewish cabal ruled the world. How delicious for them if Jewish president Roosevelt sent Jewish general Eisenhower to fight along with Jewish dictator Stalin against the poor, misunderstood Germans?

    Also, please note that Winston Churchill’s mother was NOT Jewish. Her name was, indeed, Jennie Jerome. The Jerome family (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonard_Jerome) was descended from French Huguenots. Her ancestor was Timothy Jerome, a member of the Protestant Reformed Church of France – the Calvinists)

    I urge you to please take down the portion of your website that mentions any of the above. The email I refer to may have also mentioned Geraldo Rivera, Fiorello Laguardia, Cary Grant, Peter Sellers, or David Bowie. Some of these people legitimately had Jewish ancestry (Geraldo, Laguardia, Sellers), but the facts are incorrect.
    * Geraldo’s father was Allen Rivera, not Cruz. But his mother was Jewish.
    * Cary Grant’s mother, Elsie was not Jewish. There is (was?) a rumor that his *real* mother, a seamstress in a factory in which his father worked was Jewish. It’s unlikely that Elsie is not his real mother, and in any event, he was raised Christian. (http://www.adherents.com/people/pg/Cary_Grant.html)
    * Peter Sellers’ mother was Agnes (Peg), not Margaret Marks. But she was Jewish.
    * David Bowie’s mother was not Jewish, but possibly had Jewish ancestry

    Thank you for your attention to this very important matter. Please feel free to contact me at scottsherris@gmail.com with any questions.
