6. Lenin
J.K. ,   Brooklyn USA   (05.24.11)
even if the monster had some Jewish blood in his veins,it means nothing,the personality of people is shaped by the enviroment and upbringing,a palestinian terrorist whose mother is jewish turned against Israel because he was raised as a muslim,in another case a Jewish woman had a son by a muslim father,while the son served in the IDF the muslim father tried to sneak into Israel for work from the west bank,i don't have a high opinion on both mothers,or on Lenin's grand father.
7. Tom , Tsures ?
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (05.24.11)
Lenin a Jew ? The grand son of a converted Jew , yes , but Jewish ? The Christians made their Jesus out of a Jewish person , but he was , and remained Jewish .

Reuven Brauner ,   Raanana, Israel   (05.24.11)

9. Correction
G ben Yoseph ,   Montreal, Canada   (05.24.11)
This statement is not correct: "For the first time ever, ordinary Russians can now see documents that appear to confirm long-standing rumors that Vladimir Lenin had Jewish heritage" The truth about Lenin's grandpa was widely published and discussed in the USSR in the ead of 1980x. Please avoid unhealthy sensetionalizm.

18. More non Jewish heritage than anything.
JO   (05.25.11)
One maternal grandparent makes you a Jew in Judaism only if your female ( I know it is absurd) but speaking logically, one maternal or paternal grandparent as Jewish does not a Jew make. What about all his non Jewish family, greater in some.
19. Ahmadinejad got Jewish roots too...
vendaval ,   Victoria, BC, Canada   (05.25.11)
... his real name is Sabourjian (cloth weaver), according to the British "Telegraph" (Oct.3, 2009).
20. His mothere was born in a Jewish family - he is a Jew.

Appostate but Jewish. Many died at his hands. He did not set a shinning example of how to behave.

It depends of whom do you're and what do you represent - I can give you many examples of Jews tagged as commies when it was convenient to deny their identity and even more successful ones dragged out of the closet despite they never identified themselves as Jews ,...
26. To all Commentators
Harold ,   USA   (05.25.11)
Why all of you are surprized. All Christians were Jews before baptizm. Whether it was Jesus, Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Eichmann, Mendela, and Mosolini were Jews before Baptism.
27. One in the woodpile, eh?
