Ukrainian party seeks Israel boycott


A nationalistic party in Ukraine called for a boycott of Israeli and kosher goods.

The National and Labor Party of Ukraine in a news release said that “buying them helps the Jews and Israelis conquer and destroy Ukraine’s economy.”

The radical party, which recently registered in Ukraine, calls on Ukrainians not to purchase any products marked kosher because they are affiliated with “Zionists” and would be used against the Ukrainian people.

An anti-Semitic caricature and anti-Semitic slogans are displayed on the party’s Web site.
