"Jews jewed by Jew"

Given all the animosity directed towards Wall St. of late, one can imagine that the title phrase, or some variation of it, has been uttered in many an anti-Semitic barroom soliloquy, in reference to Bernie Madoff's 50 billion dollar ponzi scheme, counting among its victims foundations attached to prominent names like Spielberg and Elie Wiesel. Indeed, many Jews have wondered aloud about the implications... Does Madoff fall into that rare but recurring phenomenon of the anti-Semetic Jew? (For a good cinematic study, see The Believer, being loosely based on the case of Francis Collin)

As you can see, however, many gullible goyim were sucked up in the scam as well: Madoff Victims Lists
