Ads Anti-Semitic

I wrote to The Independent‘s publisher, Randy Campbell, when the antiÂ-Semitic ads on pages 24 and 26 first came out [May 15] and have not as yet received any response.

That is a great disappointment, since the ads are blatantly anti-Semitic and should not have been allowed to run. I sincerely hope that your ongoing policy will be to reject this sort of distortion.
