Argentinian ‘Platform for Hate’ Puts Jewish Community at Risk

The Simon Wiesenthal Center denounced “the repeated use of Holocaust-language” on the Contexto magazine website, based in the Argentine province of Tucuman, saying such terminology amounts to ethnic and religious slurs.

In a letter to Contexto Magazine Director Tomás Luciani, Director for International Relations of the Wiesenthal Center, Shimon Samuels and the Center’s Latin American Director, Sergio Widder, charged that, “the repeated use of Holocaust-language to describe the administration of Governor José Alperovich and his wife, Senator Beatriz Rojkes de Alperovich – both Jewish – was an ethnic/religious slur.”

The Center pointed to comparisons between the Governor and Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, which include libelous characterizations of greed and obsession with money and gold.

Aside from the articles produced by the website itself, there are countless anti-Semitic comments by readers, which remain uncontrolled by the website’s editor.
