Thailand's Jewish problem

By Simon Round, June 6, 2008

JC reader Howard Cowan was browsing the website, which translates Thai words to English and English words to Thai. So he keyed in the word “Jew”.

He discovered that the Thai word for Jew is Yiw — which the web-site defined as “stingy, miserly and cheap”.

Can the Thai ambassador tell us please if this is official policy?
