This post has been cross-posted to DovBear: Rubashkin’s Lawyer On Claims of Anti-Semitism
If you read the frum papers you have been told that Rubashkin was singled out for being a Jew. We call this anti-Semitism.
I have gone on record saying that I don’t see the anti-Semitism here. (Is the Rubashkin Saga / Trial Anti-Semitic? and Are the goyim out to get Sholom Rubashkin?: Why he isn’t a victim of anti-Semitism).
I have been chastised by commenters on this blog and on DovBear. They maintain that Rubashkin is a victim of a modern-day blood libel and my post was irresponsible and erroneous.
What does Rubashkin’s attorney say?
Defense lawyers dismissed any notion that anti-Semitism underpinned the case. “Nobody responsible has made that allegation,” Lewin said.
