Dear Dr. David Duke, I’m an Aryan Jew

“Is the true beauty of a European child, or mother, or adult, any less important to preserve than an elephant, or a whale?”

David Duke said that.

I wish I could respond to him in person:

Ha, Ha Ha!

“True beauty?

“What does that even mean?

Oooh, I know what YOU mean, DOCTOR David Duke. You mean the ‘true European beauty’ of blonde hair, blue eyes and white skin.

Am I right?

I thought so.

Well, Dr. Duke, let me tell you a little bit about myself:

My name is Anat Ghelber.

By DNA, I’m ethnically Jewish.

A recent DNA test, however, revealed that while I’m mostly Ashkenazi Jewish, I’m also partly Sephardic, (by the way, Abba..Ima, if you are reading this, we’re also Sephardic Jews, just so you know.)

But, back to the point….

My looks are that of a Hitler fantasy, basically, especially when I was a little girl.

I had blonde hair, blue eyes, and an oval shaped face.

In fact if YOU saw me as a little girl, without knowing my ethnic heritage, you would probably tell yourself, “What a shame this beautiful white girl has to grow up in a world where Jews are controlling it.”

Ha. Ha. Ha.

Little would you know that this so-called “white child,” this little, white, Aryan-looking girl, is Jewish.

Yes. Jewish.

And not just Jewish, Jewish from both sides of the family.

Would you like proof?

Consider my DNA. Now, perhaps…according to you…I  would deserve to be sent to a concentration camp.  But, that’s only if you knew my exact ethnic background. The truth is, there are many Aryan-looking Jews out there just like me with blonde hair, blue eyes and freckles on their silky, white skin.

If you saw any of them on the street, you would probably want to recruit them into your white supremacist group…but the joke would be on you.

And again, Ha! Ha! Ha!

(Seriously, as I’m writing this…I’m laughing my tuchus off.)

I would like to challenge you, Mr…I mean DOCTOR Duke, in front of the whole entire world to prove that you’re really “white.”

Are you really white?

If so, how do you know?

I mean, just because you have blonde hair, blue eyes, and white skin, like me doesn’t make you “white.”

Oh I know that you, Dr. Duke, are considered a “white activist leader”, for the so-called “small percentage” of the European white race.

But how do we KNOW that you are actually “white?”

I challenge you to take a DNA test and prove it!

It may surprise you, it certainly did me.

I used to think I was one hundred percent Ashkenazi.

But, after the DNA test, there I was, surprised to find out that I also have some Sephardic in me.

So, I want to make a bet with you, and I’m sure I’ll win:

I bet that you are NOT one hundred percent “European White.”

Yes, you.

Mr. white-supremacist, racist, activist, champion of the “European races”….you, yourself…even though you speak with such passion about the European race…I bet you have some African or Asian or even *gasp* Jewish blood in you.

Oy vey!

Wouldn’t that that be a shame?

Oy, your Jewish great-grandmother would be SO disappointed in you,

Mr. Duke.

They definitely wouldn’t approve of the way that you speak about the Jewish people.

(Okay, maybe I’m over-exaggerating a little, but maybe not.)

So, are you “white?”

If you are, prove it.

Take the DNA test, and then we’ll see if you’re really fit to be a “white European activist.”

What do you say?
