PRE-YOM Kip­pur pen­i­tence from the Tele­graph after the pa­per made a bizarre ref­er­ence to Roth­schild banks in a light-hearted on­line travel ar­ti­cle.

The quirky piece listed coun­tries without air­ports, rail­ways, trees, beaches and world her­itage sites.

It also in­cluded a “no banks” cat­e­gory, say­ing “only three coun­tries on the planet don’t have a cen­tral bank owned or con­trolled by the Roth­schilds. Cuba, North Korea, Iran.”

The no­tion of the Roth­schild bank­ing fam­ily con­trol­ling in­ter­na­tional fi­nance has long been an an­ti­semitic ca­nard.

After reader protests, the pa­per deleted the bank­ing item, say­ing the ref­er­ence had been “in­cluded in er­ror, which was re­moved as soon as it was brought to our at­ten­tion. We apol­o­gise for any dis­tress caused.”
