Chabad-Lubavitch Slams Silence of Lithuanian Jews

The Chabad-Lubavitch movement has issued a rare condemnation, slamming the Jewish leadership of Lithuania for its silence in the face of media anti-Semitism.

The fiery statement came in the wake of a report published by a  Lithuanian tabloid newspaper targeting the country’s Chabad-Lubavitch emissary in a misleading attack article on paying one’s taxes.

The newspaper, Vakaro Zionios, ran a front page photo of Rabbi Sholom Ber Krinsky in its December 21, 2011 edition with the headline “The Jews,” adding in a subhead, in smaller letters, “see no need to pay their social security taxes.”

Placed for maximum effect, the image and headline conveyed the impression that a visibly religious Jew — Rabbi Krinsky — is the worst offender in this regard, noted the Brooklyn, New York-based Lubavitch World Headquarters in a pointed statement about the article.
