IT IS a shame that you printed Gerald Kaufman's article without editing the bit about Jews regarding being in debt "not as humiliation, but as an opportunity". Mr Kaufman uses this "fact" to back up his argument against Mr Netanyahu. So, according to Kaufman, the 2000-year-old image of the Jew as a Christ-killing, back-stabbing, money-lending, shameless opportunist is true. Mr Kaufman is racist and offensive. An apology from the man with many books would not be out of place.
