In the message, Gadahn acknowledges his Jewish anscestry, saying "Your speaker has Jews in his ancestry, the last of whom was his grandfather. My grandfather was a Zionist, and a zealous supporter of the usurper entity, and a prominent member of a number of Zionist hate organizations."
He points out that he is eligible for Israeli citizenship, but rejects it, saying "Isn’t it embarrassing and shameful enough for a person to carry thhe citizenship of Amerrica?"
