ANARCHY IN THE UK
In his desperate attempt to deny the radicalism of East End Jews, David Cesarani ( JC October 23) uses the fact that anarchist leader Rudolph Rocker was not Jewish to boost his case.
However, the fact that Rocker felt it necessary to learn Yiddish suggests the Jewish anarchist movement was more influential than Cesarani is prepared to admit. But he is right to point out that the wealthy Jewish “leaders” opposed the radicals as part of their aim to ingratiate themselves with Britain’s Conservative establishment. It seems nothing has changed. Joseph Finlay Staverton Road, London NW2 Please note that individual letters cannot be acknowledged. Letters may be edited.
