Switzerland - Anti-Semitic Poster Shocks Geneva Jews
Switzerland - A poster showing a Jewish figure shot by an arrow is spurring outrage in Geneva.
The ad for a Swiss national day party planned for Aug. 1 by the extremist group GNC shows a doll wearing a skullcap and an Israeli flag with an arrow in its forehead, evoking the legend of William Tell, with the slogan, “Save Switzerland: Shoot Straight!” in French.
“This is a call for the murder of Jews,” Jonah Gurfinkel said.
A GNC member said the ad was directed against the Israeli government, not Jews.
Jewish groups say they are considering a lawsuit.
