    As a Western European Jew living in Vilnius this is my opinion : Arad should have taken Lithuanian prosecutor to his words and offered to appear before a court in Vilnius. Lithuanians still have work to do to deal with the Holocaust. This could have been an opportunity. Wictor and Zmogus on this forum gave the average opinion of educated Lithuanians on what happened during the war. It is not antisemitism, but the impossibility to speak for themselves without being accused of antisemitism is a problem for some Lithuanians, and nourishes local antisemitism. I must say antisemitism is maybe more open in Lithuanian society than in France or England (leaving apart arabic antisemitism) but not more common. This article smells a lot like soviet propaganda : soviets like to say we should let them occupy Baltic countries because they are "nazis". But nowadays pogroms take place in Russia or Ukraine, not Lithuania. Let s react by thinking not emotionnaly.
