Jewish leaders slam allege anti-Semitic attack on Mila Kunis


UPI News Service, 12/22/2012 

Jewish leaders Saturday demanded a Ukrainian politician take back what they said was an anti-Semitic slur against actress Mila Kunis.

A member of the Ukraine parliament posted a message on his Facebook page this week stating the actress was not truly a Ukrainian and then referred to her by a derogatory term used against Jews during the Holocaust.

The seemingly unprovoked attack against Kunis, who starred in "The Black Swan," brought a sharp retort from Ukraine's Jewish community, the New York Post reported. The head of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee called on the government to make the offensive term illegal.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles sent a letter to Prime Minister Mykola Azarov saying Kunis' family fled Ukraine to escape anti-Semitism, and called on Azarov to condemn the statements publicly.
