“Harry Potter” accused of anti-Semitism

The author of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, was accused of using anti-Semitic stereotypes in his works.

Popular American TV presenter John Stewart said that the images of goblins ruling by Gringotts match the descriptions of Jews in the anti-Semitic book The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

“I'm just showing a cartoon. And people are like, “ Oh look at this, this is from Harry Potter! '' And I was like, “No, this is a caricature of a Jew from an anti-Semitic work.” And J.K. Rowling looks at all this and asks, “Can we get these guys to run our bank?” – commented Stewart during the podcast.

According to him, in the universe of Harry Potter; people “ can ride dragons, and someone can have a “ house owl. ''

& ldquo; But who should run the bank? Jews, ”he added.
