A leader of the Jewish community in the former Soviet republic of Belarus is planning to sue the publishing house Orthodox Initiative for “fomenting ethnic hatred,” according to Radio Free Europe. Leonid Levin launched the suit after the publisher recently put out “The War According to the Laws of Meanness,” which consists of anti-Semitic articles published in the Russian and Belarusian press in the 1990s as well as in pre-1917 Russia.
