AN­AR­CHY IN THE UK

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment&analysis -

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.
