    "The president of Belarus has been called "anti-Semitic" after he reportedly blamed Jews for turning a town into a "pigsty". . Belarusian Jewish groups have warned of growing anti-Semitism in the country. They are alarmed at what they call the open publication of anti-Semitic brochures and books, desecration of Jewish cemeteries and closure of the republic's only Jewish university." - BBC One wonders how Lukashenko could be sure of Jewish habits. The Jewish community of Bobruysk was destroyed by the Nazis and the city itself was left in ruins and rebuilt after the war. How could the Jews be blamed for its reduced state? The blame probably goes to the Communist regime. It seems that stereotypes of Jews are still alive in Belarus. Jewish towns might well have been relative "pigsties", but the situation is different today and rapidly improving. Perhaps Israel should invite him for another free tour of the country, but only after he takes care of the growing anti-Semitism at home.
