Colin Powell Speaks Yiddish???

Now this is bizarre. Did you know that Colin Powell speaks fluent Yiddish??
"In 1993 Mr. Powell visited the Holy Land. Upon meeting Yitzhak Shamir in Jerusalem, he greeted the Prime Minister with the words "Men kent reden Yiddish" (We can speak Yiddish). As Shamir, stunned, tried to pull himself together, Powell continued chatting in his second-favorite language. Colin Powell had never forgotten his early days in the Bronx."
Actually, he does look a little Jewish...

Extra bonus weirdness: Barack Obama
speaks Indonesian.
