Julian Assange: The Jews are out to get me!

And not just any Jews, but Jews who are reporters in London.

His remarks appeared in the magazine Private Eye, in an article by its editor, Ian Hislop, who outlined a rambling phone call that Mr. Assange made on Feb. 16 to complain about the coverage of WikiLeaks.

He was especially angry about a Private Eye report that Israel Shamir, an Assange associate in Russia, was a Holocaust denier. Mr. Assange complained that the article was part of a campaign by Jewish reporters in London to smear WikiLeaks.

Of all the groups in all the world who might have some reason to get Julian Assange, “Jewish reporters in London” would have to be one of the least threatening.
