Four congressmen want the FBI to explain why it has not hired Sephardi Jews applying for Arabic translator jobs. Reps. Anthony Weiner of New York, Peter Deutsch of Florida, and Frank Pallone and Robert Andrews of New Jersey, all Democrats, submitted a list in November of 59 New York-area Jews of Syrian origin who applied for translation jobs with the FBI in the months after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
