A disturbing article by Dr. Mark Geller of University College, London, on anti-semitic accusations against him and Shaul Shaked made by the director of research of the Iraq Museum in Baghdad, Donny George. Both Geller and Shaked are well-respected researchers of the Babylonian magical bowls, many of which remain in the Iraq Museum, where Jewish researchers cannot get access to them, even though in many cases they provide invaluable information about Jewish life in Babylonia in late antiquity.
