Bernie Madoff Cost The Jews A Lot More Than $50 Billion!
True to form the Madoff scandal has not only cost individuals and charitable organizations billions, but it has brought the specter of anti-semitism that normally bubbles just underneath the surface out into the light of day.
I'm sure this article will receive comments that fall on both sides, but the fact of the matter is that there are people in the world that do not feel any sorrow for the people that lost their money in this scandal. To the contrary they use the scandal to proliferate the stereotypes that exist.
These hatemongers will also use the internet as the vehicle for the comments, because you are basically free to say whatever you want and do so anonymously.
So where in history will Bernie Madoff fall. On the side as one of the worlds greatest thief's, a conduit for a rise in the level of anti-semitism around the world, or both? Both would seem the most likely.

One Jew thief robs another bunch of Jew thieves - I suppose that's what you'd call a victimless crime. I suppose if he'd not scre*ed his fellow Jews - and robbed us poor gentiles it would've been absolutely kosher, eh?" - post by "XDFXDFXDF" on nymag.com.
