On January 8, the Jerusalem Post published a joint op-ed by Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi and his Lithuanian counterpart Gabrielijus Landsbergis, about the current relations between the two countries and the bright future awaiting both countries as the good relations between us continue to flourish. Of course, there was no mention of the rampant Holocaust distortion in Lithuania, and the fact that Lithuania has played a major role in encouraging this phenomenon all over post-Communist Eastern Europe.
Below is my response to that op-ed and an accompanying news story about my protest against Israel’s reluctance to oppose the false Holocaust narrative being promoted and taught in Lithuania.
Comments and reactions all welcome.
