    Rattling the Board: Lord Wallace

    The JC's Middle East correspondent, Anshel Pfeffer, has been awarded the prestigious B'nai B'rith award for journalism.

    Mr Pfeffer, 36, has worked for the paper for three years. He reported from Mumbai in the aftermath of the terror attacks and covered Operation Cast Lead, the Jerusalem riots and the Israeli elections.

    He also covered the Israeli angle on universal jurisdiction in the UK after a warrant was issued in London for the arrest of Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni.

    A regular analyst for the JC on Israeli politics and the military, he is also a columnist for the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz.
