UK: Racism against Jews not as bad “because Jews are rich”

"Anti-Semitism isn’t really thought of as racism. People genuinely don’t think of Jews as deserving of the same protections as other ethnic minorities.”

He recalls “a very famous friend” telling him that racism against Jews wasn’t as bad “because Jews are rich”.

Recently, after an appearance on Newsnight , he got into a Twitter row with David Icke, who believes that the world is run by secret lizards. “Somehow or other, everyone he identifies as a lizard happens to be Jewish,” observes Baddiel.
