By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - Today Okke Ornstein writes the following about his personal lawyer and candidate for the mayorship of Panama City, Miguel Antonio Bernal; "All across Latin America antisemitism is common, also among the left. I remember walking back from lunch with some lawyers from Bernal's office. We entered a department store on Via España to look for some office supplies or something, and when we didn't find them we tried to leave on the other side, the other street. The security goon wouldn't let us, saying that we couldn't just cut our walk by going through that store if we didn't buy something. A discussion with that idiot solved nothing, and my suggestion to break through the blockade anyway was voted down. Anyway, once outside again, one of these lawyers started what can only be described as an antisemitic rant about the Jews, whom, I learned, owned that store. It went on all the way until we reached the office. Nobody objected." I guess it's politically prudent to surround yourself with anti semitic lawyers in Panama? I have a couple of questions; - Who was that lawyer and is he still working for the Bernal campaign? And "nobody objected?" Even Ornstein?
