This deserves wider publicity

From http://iafrica.com/news/worldnews/406177.htm:

Russia’s nationalist lawmakers have asked the prosecutor general to ban all Jewish organisations because of their “extremist” behaviour in a call that coincided with ceremonies marking the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz.
[…] “The whole democratic world today is under the financial and political control of the Jews. […] We cannot follow the false idea of tolerance which is imposed on us, such as that of the acceptance of sin, of evil, of heresy, and in the present case, of nothing less than satanism,” said the document.

We Jews are sometimes accused of having a persecution complex.  Well, as the old saying goes, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.  Anti-semitism is one of the most stubborn and pernicious of memes, and, if anything, is on the rise.

  1. Yeah…i read that on GlennBeck.com (evil conservative industry site).

    Anyways, I am hoping it’s just a small group making big noise and will be thoroughly rejected. *finger’s crossed*

    Paranoia has kept many a hunted man safe from harm…

  2. Hey, the Russian government is doing that to us as well. The Orthodox Church is a very strong power over there, ya know.

      By “us”, you mean…?

        Jehovah’s Witnesses, remember?

        They had also had a huge resistance force against us in the Republic of Georgia where the Orthodox Church used to lead raids against those at the meeting, beat them, imprison them…they’ve just not gotten the rights to practice freely without persecution.
        But in Russian, we’re still banned.

          Ah, I had forgotten.

          Thanks for pointing that out, I was not aware of it.

          Actually in Russia all christian religions except for the orthodox church are banned. No church that wasn’t established before 1928 is allowed to be there, which eliminates any church but the Russian Orthodox church.

  3. Fuckers..

    Vladimir Zhirinovsky is such an asshole…

    However.. I can at least add that this is not necessarily a new thing.. Zhirinovsky has been spouting such things for at least a decade.. He first got notice in 1991 when he came in 3rd in the first presidential election in Russia, and his party got 23% of the seats in the Duma (which would be 103 seats compared to the mere 20 seats that the current article notes..)… However.. ever since then, he has thankfully been in decline (even if Anti-semitism hasn’t been..).

    Also.. one might note that russia has never been particularly friendly to the Jewish faith.. which is so fucking idiotic… because I’d be willing to make a bet that if you tried to make a correlation between the friendliness to Jews of a nation.. and it’s long term strategic success.. it would be rather high.. đŸ˜‰
