Mila Kunis

Targeted By Anti-Semitic

Ukrainian Politician

Exclusive Details

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.

Are we really surprised? this is the county where their parliament has descended into physical brawls several time in the last few weeks.

They're not the most sofisiticaed of politicians.

And lets not forget the whole government being conned into announcing a deal worth billions to build an gas terminal (on live tv) by a fraudster.

Unquestionably, yet another regime in another part of world, wages a veiled, cowardly-attack against Judaism.

The House of David 20Twelve Victory, is HERE:

Hebrews Twelve;28-28 is HERE,
Daniel Twelve;1 is HERE,
Proverbs Twelve;7 is NOW,
Zechariah Twelve;8 is NOW,
St. Mark Twelve;36 is NOW,
Psalm 2;012 is NOW:
The Most Blessed Christ King Yeshua reigns!
ALL, for The Greater Glory of The True and Living Yahweh!

@Amanda's Weed Pipe: Although I'm actually quite surprised, you're comment is spot-on. In the U.S. alone, a cunning, sinister, shadow-war has long been
waged against Judeo-Christian beliefs in "America". Still, recall the well-earned fate's
of Pharaohs and Fascists, throughout History:

Geesh, louise enough with the racial slurs already. What in the world did the woman from That 70's Show do to HIM??? Nothing. I guess just being born a Jewish Ukranian makes you a horrible persons so says the politician. I love the Simon Weisanthal Center, they call out people on their crap and take no prisoners. I guess he learned absolutely no lesson from Hitler and his ilk. That's how it starts. And I bet you that the dude who said it was an old whit

"Can't we all just get along" Really the Jews are that upset with what one idiot 1/2 way across the world says. By making a big deal more people are going to use that word now. Choose your battles who cares about Kunis.

I'm used to this even as a half Jew esp from my Russian friends and never knew why growing up bc I was non practicing... It's more what than who ab what he said. And to put it out there yourself is moronic.
