Belgium rabbi: UNESCO promotes incitement and racism – Belgium’s Rabbi Avraham Gigi blasts UNESCO for supporting carnival where anti-Semitic puppets were displayed. | Israel National News
Belgium Chief Rabbi Avraham Gigi, who serves as a member of the Conference of European Rabbis, slammed the anti-Semitic puppets displayed at the Aalst carnival.
The puppets depicted religious Jews, holding rats and money bags.
„These are horrific pictures and they remind us of very dark days in Europe’s history,“ Rabbi Gigi said. „The worst part of this issue is the fact that this embarrassing carnival is funded by UNESCO. Instead of an international organization such as this promoting tolerance and respect, they promote ideas of anti-Semitic hatred, incitement, and racism.“
