Belarus is not doing enough to fight anti-Semitism, a group that monitors anti-Semitism charged. The Union of Councils for Jews in the Former Soviet Union cited vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, the open sale of anti-Semitic literature and a new law restricting religious freedom as reasons for the charge. “The Jewish population is not safe,” said the group’s Leonid Stonov. “Authorities could very easily decrease the level of xenophobia and anti-Semitism if only they were willing to do so.”
