New York - the blog gawker.com uploaded onto the site a flyer that has lately been distributed in the mail, which displays front pages of leading magazines in the United States on which prominent Jews from the financial sector star and on which was written “The Wall Street Jews.”
The blog uploaded the picture under the heading: ”What is going on with this flyer about the Wall Street Jews?” In the posting Gawker raised for discussion the question: “What is the message here, about all these Jews in Wall Street? And wondered: “who has the patience, and the persistence necessary for designing, copying and distributing so many letters to so many people?
The posting raised a fierce discussion, mainly between most of the responders and one man who argued that all the big frauds were committed by Jews, and that maybe there was something in the Jewish culture that causes it. “I find there a strong component of ‘they versus us’ in the Jewish culture, which enables the Jews to justify negative behavior towards others, as long as those others are not Jews”. That writer argued again and again that he is not antisemitic, but simply examines the facts in a rational manner.
