According to the text, obtained by daily newspaper Maariv and published today on its front page, Che Guevaràs mother, Celia de la Serna, was "in fact" a Russian Jew, who escaped the pogrom. Her name was Scheinerman and she was the younger sister of Shmuel Scheinerman, the father of Sharon who immigrated in Palestine in the early 20th century to work as a farmer. Maariv quotes the controversial text reading that in 1965 Celia told 'Che' on her deathbed that he was related to General Sharon. Guevara then visited Israel under fake identity and, according to the text, met Sharon and attended lectures in a rabbi college in Jerusalem. The implicit conclusions of the text are that as a "son of a Jewish mother", 'Che' Guevara should be considered Jewish.
