    Jewish leader backs Carr in peace prize row

    One of Sydney's Jewish leaders has joined New South Wales Premier Bob Carr in criticising the conduct of people trying to stop the Sydney Peace Prize from being awarded to Palestinian activist Hanan Ashwari.

    The president of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, Stephen Rothman, says these people have done a disservice to his community.

    The selection of Dr Ashwari for the peace prize and Premier Bob Carr's decision to present it has upset sections of the Jewish community.

    Mr Rothman says he would prefer if the Premier did not take part in the ceremony but believes Mr Carr's judgement should be respected.

    "There's been methods of approach by one or two people, who are not part of the leadership of the community, that probably have not done the community much good," he said.
