From the Jewish news weekly
A campaign financing scandal in which two of the principal players are Jewish is dealing a heavy blow to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s already weakened administration.
The involvement of two Jews at the center of the very public scandal is also making many British Jews uncomfortable, but Jewish community leaders say it has not caused any alarming anti-Jewish media coverage or anti-Semitic fallout.
“You can’t escape from the fact that the main dramatis personae in this saga are Jews,” said Antony Lerman, the executive director of the London-based Institute for Jewish Policy Research. “Not only are they Jewish, they are committed Jews.”
But Lerman said “the media’s coverage on this issue has been fair.”
As might be expected, those under scrutiny have links with an Israeli advocacy organization — fueling the cadre of anti-Israeli conspiracy theorists.
