Each week SJ editor Leslie Bunder looks at some of the stories that the print Jewish media are reporting by delving into their front pages, news sections and features.
The Jewish News reports that the leader of the Liberal Democrats in Europe Chris Davies has resigned following a report in which it revealed that he had sent abusive anti-semitic emails to one of its readers. He told the reader he told the reader that he hoped she enjoyed wallowing in her own filth and decried the influence of the 'Jewish lobby' over foreign governments following ongoing emails between the two. "I deeply regret the offence his remarks have caused to the Jewish community," said Lib Dem leader Sir Menzies Campbell.
The Jewish News writes that a secretary at Deutsche Bank is suing for £1million saying she was bullied by a group of female managers about her Judaism. "It started from day one. I was told by other people not to worry, it happens to everyone. I was told they would move on. I felt they were targeting me but they had done it with other people," she said.
The Jewish Chronicle reports of a racist attack on pupils from the JFS. The children aged 12 were in their school uniforms travelling on the top deck of the 340 bus between Edgware and Stanmore when a group of older youths slapped and made anti-semitic comments about them.
The Jewish Chronicle writes that former Liverpool player and England manager Kevin Keegan has turned down the opportunity to manage Betar Jerusalem in Israel. He said he did not consider them "a serious European team.".
