Rice appoints advisor on anti-Semitism
By RON KAMPEAS / JTA

The US State Department just added a set of teeth to its fledgling office monitoring anti-Semitism.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Wednesday named Gregg Rickman, a dogged investigator who has tracked the Swiss banks’ role in the Holocaust, as the first special envoy for monitoring and combating anti-Semitism.

Jewish leaders unanimously agreed that the appointment would push the office monitoring anti-Semitism, in existence barely 18 months, to the department’s front burner.
