UK: Former Racial Equality Chairman says Jews are twice as wealthy as others

Via Campaign Against Antisemitism UK:
In a series of radio and television interviews, Trevor Phillips, former Chairman of the Commission for Racial Equality, has been repeatedly claiming that “Jewish households are twice as wealthy as the rest”. This statement clearly plays on the racist stereotype of the wealthy, miserly Jew, at a time when antisemitism is at alarmingly high levels.

Phillips is apparently trying to suggest that not all racial or religious stereotypes are wrong, but his statement about Jewish people is incendiary and wholly irresponsible; we can reveal that it is based on a survey which only 98 Jewish people responded to.
