Putin Reveals His Hand, Orders Jews to Register in East Ukraine

Wednesday, April 17, 2014

Russian president Vladamir Putin revealed his hand and ordered Jews to register with the government.

According to USA Today:

Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city’s Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee “or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated,” reported Ynet News, Israel’s largest news website.

The leaflet begins, “Dear Ukraine citizens of Jewish nationality,” and states that all people of Jewish descent over 16 years old must report to the Commissioner for Nationalities in the Donetsk Regional Administration building and “register.”

The leaflet orders Jews to provide: “ID and passport are required to register your Jewish religion, religious documents of family members, as well as documents establishing the rights to all real estate property that belongs to you, including vehicles.”

Failure to comply will result in citizenship being revoked “and you will be forced outside the country with a confiscation of property.”

The leaflets bore the name of Denis Pushilin, who identified himself as chairman of “Donetsk’s temporary government,” and were distributed near the Donetsk synagogue and other areas, according to the reports.

Comparisons to anti-Semitic policies in Europe during World War II resulting in the Holocaust is undeniable.

Morton Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America, the oldest pro-Israel group in the USA, said the leaflets should be seen in the context of a rising tide of anti-Semitism across Europe and the world, and that it should prompt a strong response from the White House.

    Next up, gay and lesbian Ukrainians will be required to “register”.

    I’m curious?

    Where is President Obama today? Can he manage to squeeze in 3 minutes to comment on this shocking development in Ukraine?

  3. feminazi says:

    And it begins again …..

  4. Christopher says:

    Stephen Iversonn,

    Good question. Where is President Obama and why hasn’t he weighed in on this?

    My guess is the president is busy with another fundraiser. Raising money is about all he does these days.

  5. Jim In Texas says:

    I usually prefer that my Presidents stop and think before shooting off their mouth on serious geopolitical matters. For one thing, let’s make sure that this is real first rather than fake propaganda. If it is true, then the President will comment on it soon enough. (Though we can already guess that Putin is going to say “Not me; I didn’t issue that.”

  6. Rachel says:

    I heard President Obama speak this afternoon and it was the same old gibberish. Lots of empty threats of sanctions against Russia. Obama isn’t particularly concerned about Israel or the Jewish people but the rise of Russian nationalism is no different from the rise of German nationalism in the 1930’s. It ended badly for the Jews then and the can end badly for the Jews in Ukraine. I think what should be clear to everyone is Obama’s lone focus now is the glories of the Affordable Care Act — his singular accomplishment. The world should be looking to the European Union for leadership and ways to help Ukrainian Jews.

    Today, Jews in Russia, tomorrow 99 percenter’s in good ole US of effen A!

  8. Rachamim1967 says:

    During the days of the Tsar autocracy, Jewish children from Ukraine at about the age of 13 would be kidnapped and forced into the Tzar’s army.

    This is one reason so many Jews fled to Moldova and Romania.

    While Russia never exterminated Jews — Ukrainians did. Chmielnicki: 100,000, Petlyura: 50,000, Bandera: 45,000. Hundreds of thousands under the auspices of the SS.

    The leaflets released in Donetsk in eastern Ukraine are a clear provocation. Jews in Donetsk must prepare and arm themselves for coming ethnic war. The USA will not protect them.

    Won’t be long until the tin foil hat crowd says it’s a CIA plot. 3,2,1….

  10. Randy Arroyo says:

    It’s time for Europe to step in. NATO exists for a reason. Flex your muscle, NATO. Stop the rising tide of fascism before it’s too late.

  11. Joe in Colorado says:

    During WWII, Russia didn’t kill Jews. In fact, Russian provided safe harbor to thousands of Jews escaping Hitler’s SS. If the current leaflet is real and not the work of the CIA, then it signifies a dangerous new direction in the war in seeping into eastern Ukraine. Such a leaflet only further destabilize the country and makes it more likely NATO, Israel and the US will become involved. Call “tin foil hat” all you want but such a stunt smells of CIA to me.

  12. Scott Dancer says:

    I am not surprised to read Jews have been instructed to register in Ukraine. Ukraine has a terrible history of anti-Semitism and it looks like little has changed.

    In the 10 years of Nazi occupation, 70 per cent of Ukrainian Jews had been murdered. Over a million people and in the ensuing decades Jews numbers continue to decline. Today there are only about 65,000 Jews left in Ukraine. Down from 2,700,000 in the 1920s.

    President Putin’s state-sponsored anti-Semitism and ultra-nationalist anti-Semitic groups continue to flourish, aided by Putin’s state security services. TV and radio broadcasters regularly feature anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists. Blame the Jews. It never changes.

  13. Pechanga says:

    How depressing to think the ugly face of anti-Semitism still exists in the 21st century.

    Nike Shox R3 Running Shoe White Golden Black during the 3 combinations of colours,Nike identified since the allegations in opposition to Mr. The most striking feature of this model is that the band and bracelet both have silver polished stainless steel adding to the shimmering look. Therefore, treadmill running requires a specific type of shoes that can support the foot-especially the heels-during the workout.
