at the London School of Economics has been canceled by threats of rioting:
`Jewish gene` banker`s LSE talk cancelledThe Jewish Chronicle OnlineBy Robyn Rosen, February 15, 2011A lecture by a German banker who has referred to a "Jewish gene" due to be held at the London School of Economics last night was cancelled at the last minute due to security concerns.Thilo Sarrazin was due to speak in a debate organised by the university`s German Society last night.
