Ukraine neo-Nazi party goes on to win large number of seats in parliament

Hillary Clinton UkraineA political party in Ukraine, well known for attacking Jews and foreigners, has managed to achieve a foothold in that country after receiving support from U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and now Jewish leaders are calling on President Obama and Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu to intervene, according to an article published in “Breitbart.”

In the “Breibart” article, Ben Shapiro writes:

“Israel has expressed ‘deep concern’ at a political breakthrough by an extremist party in Ukraine that is well known for its attacks on Jews and foreigners, and which managed to win a large number of parliamentary seats for the first time on Sunday thanks to an election pact with controversial opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko’s Fatherland Party. The opposition was also boosted by the tacit support of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton last week penned an op-ed in ‘The New York Times’ praising Mrs. Tymoshenko, who in turn joined forces with the anti-Semitic Svoboda Party.”

According to ‘Breitbart,’ Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman wrote on October 27, “Israel is concerned by the recently signed coalition agreement between the ‘Batkyvshchyna’ party and the extremist ‘Svoboda’ party in Ukraine. Antisemitic insults by ‘Svoboda’ have caused outrage on number of occasions both in Ukraine and in Israel. The ‘Svoboda’ leader has praised the fight ‘against kikes and dirty Russians.’”

“Breitbart” quotes a prominent Jewish leader, who asked not to be identified, who says that Hillary Clinton’s “New York Times” op-ed ripping the current Ukrainian administration has “created a neo-Nazi Frankenstein by issuing a de facto endorsement of Mrs. Tymoshenko and her choices.”

Shapiro says the following about the Svoboda Party and the politics in Ukraine:

“The Svoboda Party is led by Oleg Tyagnibok, who has suggested that Ukraine is occupied by ‘Yids and Russians,’ as well as making statements about ‘kikes.’ An activist of Svoboda and a candidate for mayor of Lviv in the 2010 elections, Yuri Mikhalchishin, last year called on supporters to use the methods of Hamas. He also called the Holocaust as a ‘bright period’ in the history of Europe and declared the state of Israel ‘illegitimate.’

On Sunday Tymoshenko’s opposition party ran in an election alliance with the extremist Svoboda Party, which for the first time broke through the 5% minimum vote barrier, achieving dozens of seats; all in all, Svoboda received around 11% of the national vote according to exit polls.”

The “Breitbart” article says ”top Jewish leaders are calling on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to pressure Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for a retraction of her support for Tymoshenko.”

Both President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu have denounced anti-Semitism and non-tolerance.
