Anti-semitism in Two Peruvian Papers

Rabbi Morton M. Rosenthal, director of the Latin American Affairs Department of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, reported today that editors of two Peruvian newspapers. “Expreso” and “Extra” continue to publish anti-Semitic cartoons and articles which attack Jews and Israel, despite repeated protests by Jewish community leaders in Lima to the newspaper publishers as well as government officials. “Expreso” was one of the five newspapers nationalized in August by the Peruvian government.
