Riga - Following the activity carried out by the Israeli Embassy in Riga against the rude antisemitic incitement heard during the "Ancestors Era" radio show broadcast by the NABA state radio station (which brought about the suspension of that program), an especially rude antisemitic email was received, directed against the Israeli ambassador.
The title of the email, written by Leonards Inkins, the operator of an Internet portal named "The Popular Tribunal of Latvia", was: "The insolence of the Israeli embassy in Latvia" and its contents were also published on the portal as an open letter to the Israeli ambassador.
According to the email author, that email was written following the ambassador's letter sent to the Latvian Broadcasting Authority, concerning the "Ancestors Era" radio show. In this email he expresses blunt antisemitic opinions such as "the Latvians experienced the atrocities, the Jews' deeds", "The State of Israel was illegally established by means of murder and expulsion of the local residents".
The email author further writes - "Your Excellency, the selection is not between humans but between animals, since you are more beastly than the animals".
