Anti-Semitism in Pakistan—hate on a sliding scale

Right in the middle of Karachi stands one of the most recognized symbols of Judaism: the Star of David. It adorns Merewether Tower, one of the city's best-known landmarks. Nadeem Ahmed, a broker at the Karachi Stock Exchange located just across the street, points to some old graffiti at the base of the tower that reads "Israel na manzoor" (Israel is not acceptable). "These marks show the anger of some fanatics for the brutality of Israelis against the Muslims of Palestine and Lebanon," he says. "Frankly speaking, I'm neither happy nor sad about the Jews who were killed in Mumbai."
