      Jewish sect criticized
      ORDINARY ANTISEMITISM
      by V. Baranov
      Ekspress khronika
      27 December 1997

      UMAN. Cherkassk region. On 22 December more than 100 local residents
      appealed to deputies of the Supreme Soviet of Ukraine requesting the
      representatives of the world Jewish movement of hasids be denied entry
      to Ukraine. "Hasids making the annual pilgrimage to Uman, where the
      founder of their movement once lived, turn our city into a Jewish
      hostle," the authors of the appeal asserted. They are displeased that
      the Ukrainian government finances the hasids' action and the police
      protect them while they are making their pilgrimage.

      Supreme Soviet of Ukraine deputy Sergei Smirnov declared that in the
      eighteenth century the hasids took part in the murder of the Ukrainian
      national hero Oleksa Dovbush. Besides, hasids are advocated of radical
      Zionism and are struggling to achieve world domination by Jews. The
      deputy suggested that the Ukrainian parliament publish a decree
      forbidding hasids from entering the country's territory. Alexander
      Moroz, speaker of the Ukrainian parliament, said that this question
      needed careful study. (tr. by PDS)
