Obama nominates part-Jew Kerry for secretary of state

President Obama nominated Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) as secretary of state.

Apparently John Kerry has Jewish roots:

Senator John Kerry, with his mother’s New England patrician pedigree and his Irish last name actually has a grandfather who was born a Jew in the former Austro-Hungarian Empire.

The news was a revelation to Kerry himself, who only found out about his Jewish roots while running in the 2004 presidential election.

His paternal grandfather Frederick A. Kerry, was born Fritz Kohn in a town in what today is the Czech Republic before changing his name ahead of his immigration to the United States a century ago.
