An American al-Qaeda member and militant spokesman told on an internet video, of his descent from a Jewish background.Why does Iran's media consider this newsworthy? Because it knows that its readers will make this natural "logical"leap:
On Saturday, the American-born al-Qaeda operative, Adam Yahiye Gadahn, said he had "Jews in his ancestry, the last of whom was his grandfather," confirming the genealogy for the first time, CNN reported.
He made the remarks in a video posted on Saturday on the website of al-Qaeda's media wing al-Sahab. He has appeared in such postings before voicing threats of terrorist attacks on the United States.
For some reason, PressTV didn't bother to quote this paragraph from CNN:
"Let me here tell you something about myself and my biography, in which there is a benefit and a lesson," Gadahn says, as he elicits support from his fellow Muslims for "our weapons, funds and Jihad against the Jews and their allies everywhere."
