Targeted By Anti-Semitic

Jewish organizations around the world are furious with the Ukrainian government ... after a Ukrainian politician used an Anti-Semitic slur in a Facebook rant about Mila Kunis.

The man who set off the controversy is lawmaker Igor Miroshnichenko -- who had written that Mila (a Jew who was born in the Ukraine) is not a true Ukrainian because she's a "zhydovka" ... a word that has been used as a slur against Jewish people since the Holocaust.

After protests by Ukrainian Jews, the Ukrainian government announced the word was OK to use because it appears in the Ukrainian dictionary as a term for a Jew that isn't necessarily a slur.

Now, the famous Simon Wiesenthal Center in L.A. is getting involved -- firing off a letter to the Prime Minister of the Ukraine to "express our outrage and indignation against the slanders of the Svoboda Party directed against the Jewish community in the Ukraine."

In the letter, Rabbi Marvin Hier explains ... the term "zhydovka" translates to "dirty Jewess" ... and was used as an "insidious slur invoked by the Nazis and their collaborators as they rounded up the Jews to murder them at Babi Yar and in the death camps."

The org. has called on the Prime Minister to "publically condemn this attack and to take measures to defeat the xenophobic forces that threaten your democracy."

We reached out to Kunis for comment -- so far, no word back.

F-all    

The only people on the planet who are classed as a people and a religion. The only group of people who call anyone who disagrees with their views an anti semite. Every country from England to Africa pays the jews money for what a fascist did decades ago. Jews who control and own the media, enterntainment, the law offices, financial institutions, rule the world by false media reports...fox tv, shotty entertainment to shrink wrap minds...evry chuck lorre sitcom, jerry bruckheimer show and movie, then sell guns and violence to eccentric youth and dumb hillibillies based on the entertainment sold to them, then blame every other race of people for the downslide of humanity while making a cheap buck and selling this crap back to people while stealing land, raising rents, and basically turning everyone who is not jewish into a slave to the economy they get rich from to create their jewish state...always crying about things being stolen from them when they are every bit the thief!
