Gaddafi Jewish too now? Oh boy...

The ink on the latest "revelations" about Mahmoud the Mad's Jewish roots has barely dried and evaporated (after all it was a canard, created, most probably, by his political rivals). And here we are on the brink of another scandal: the Maariv article (in Hebrew) tells a story about the Jewish mom who produced Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi, that unique, albeit a bit deranged, offspring.

Maariv received a corroboration by one of the female relatives that Qadaffi's mother's name was Rosella (Rosalla?) Tamas. When Rosella was 18, she acquainted and married a Muslim man. One of the offsprings of the marriage was Muammar.
The article goes into further details of the genealogy of Tamas family. Suffice to say that, according to it, Muammar has quite a few close relatives in Ramat Gan, where he will be warmly received, no doubt.

Well, I am not sure the King of Kings is considering repatriation at the moment, but the story clears up at least one of the question marks: the uncertainty about his name: Gaddafi, Qadaffi, Gadhaffi, etc. etc.

And, of course, Elders have lost a valuable agent, once his true identity was revealed, but his usefulness was in doubt lately anyway...

Jet lag my foot...
