VILNIUS- The Lithuanian Jewish Community has recently noticed an increased threat of anti-Semitism in Lithuania, some members going so far as to worry that another holocaust may happen.

Simonas Aperavicius, chairman of the Lithuanian Jewish Community said that the media is one of the primary platforms of anti-semitism.  

"I can see that there is threat here. Some newspapers and especially internet pages raise worries, there some persons are inviting to repeat holocaust, that Jewish people should be eliminated," Alperavicius told reporters.

Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius said he too noticed these occurrences and said that such publications should not be tolerated.

"I notice in some press some conscious or unconsciously irresponsible publications and I do not think that it should be tolerated easily," said Kubilius.
