Antisemitic Reading of Russophobia

For a while I have practiced this intellectual exercise, whenever I see an inane Russophobic comment I do a rereading of the comment by inserting the place of Russia, and Russians, Israel and Jews. So for instance, recent comment by Anthony Blinken:

“I think one lesson in recent history is that once Russians are in your house, it’s sometimes very difficult to get them to leave,”

Magic want working

“I think one lesson in recent history is that once Jews are in your house, it’s sometimes very difficult to get them to leave,”

Does the second statement sound ignorant and hateful? That’s because Blinken’s statement was ignorant and hateful.

In another instance, I see Russophobic comments saying that Russia is surrounded by countries that hate it. This is somehow meant to show Russia to be hostile and criminal. But Russia was always surrounded by hostile enemies. Expansionist Westerners and opportunistic nomads in the East. Israel is also surrounded by countries that hate it, and East Europeans that live in Russophobic countries are the Arabs. How about some missile strike, wretches?

The Arabs are actually smarter than the East Europeans, at least the Jordanians, and the Egyptians are cool with Israel, and slowly but surely, East Europeans will hopefully be cool with Russia.

Antisemitic Christmas Offer

While in the West, Jon Stewart finds Jews in the goblins of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter universe, in Ukraine you can get genuine antisemitic literature in online shops…

In his recent video, Anatoly Shariy mentions that the owner of the shop above, “Epicentr” is certain Galina Gerega, one of the richest people in Ukraine, who is very close to president, Zelensky.

You can get these three titles shipped for a price of 1499 HRN, with a discount of 500 HRN. The International Jew by Henry Ford, Mein Kampf of Adolf Hitler, and a book by Orey Volost called the Rat People. Orey Volost is a pseudonym of an anonymous author, the author likely hails from the Slavic neopagan, and neonazi scene judging by the ancient Slavic sounding pseudonym. The rat people are of course, the Jews.

What I find funny is that none of the titles featured are written in Ukrainian. Distribution of such material may be breaking several Ukrainian laws. As you can see, the people in Ukraine wipe their ass with the laws.

Attacks on Jews in Uman

The other day, a pogrom on the Jewish community of Uman happened, four people ended in hospital.

On Friday in Uman a group of local hooligans, around 30 people, attacked the Jews near the grave of Rebbe Nachman and beat them up. As a result of the pogrom 4 Jews ended up in hospital. The witnesses say the hooligans were armed with sticks and knives. Because of many incidents and the inaction of the police, the Jews in Uman began organising a special defence group to protect themselves from hooligans.

The fight broke out after a small altercation between one Ukrainian and the Jews, after which he called his friends to beat up the Jews.

This is not the first time something like this has happened.

In 2016, two hooligans began spraying blood in the tomb of Rebbe Nachman, and dropped a pig’s head with a swastika etched into it. And there was also a grenade attack on the tomb.
