WikiLeaks' Julian Assange 'blames Jewish conspiracy'

    According to Private Eye magazine, the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has claimed that there is a “Jewish conspiracy” out to get him.

    The editor of Private Eye says Assange told him that an Eye article about WikiLeaks’ Russian associate, alleged Holocaust denier and antisemite Israel Shamir, was “an obvious attempt to deprive him and his organisation of Jewish support and donations”.

    In the same interview Mr Assange allegedly added that the magazine was “part of a conspiracy” led by “Jewish” writers.

    Mr Assange apparently accused the Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger of being part of the conspiracy, despite the fact that neither he or the other writers mentioned are not Jewish.

    According to Private Eye, when informed of this “Assange insisted that [Rusbridger] was “sort of Jewish” because he was related to [Guardian journalist] David Leigh”.

    The bizarre interview comes a week after a court ruled that Mr Assange should be extradited to Sweden to face an investigation into an alleged sexual assault.
