Number of Antisemitic Articles Up 74% in Ukraine
UCSJ ^ | January 23, 2006

Posted on 01/24/2006 1:25:22 AM PST by jb6

The number of antisemitic articles published in the Ukrainian press increased by 74% from 2004 to 2005, according to a report by the secular Jewish umbrella group VAAD, cited in a January 23, 2006 article by the AEN news service. Antisemitic articles increased from 379 in 2004 to 661 last year and appeared in major publications like the Socialist Party press organ “Silski Visti” and more marginal papers like “The Idealist.” The report links the rise in antisemitic publishing with the sharp increase in antisemitic violence, most notably the attack on yeshiva student Mordechai Molozhenov, which left him in a coma from which he only recently emerged, and an attack on JTA's Ukraine correspondent Vladimir Matveev.

Funny how everyone seemed to think he was such a wonderful guy, and blamed Russia for his skin disorder.

Russia's Jews To Ask For Extra Police Near Synagogues

The reaction in Russia is perfectly normal to an solated insident:
Russia's Jews To Ask For Extra Police Near Synagogues

A Russian Jew at Moscow's Hasid Synagogue, site of an attack on worshippers on 11 January
(TASS)
12 January 2006 - Russia's Federation of Jewish Communities (FEOR) says it will ask the Russian authorities to reinforce security near the country's synagogues.

Speaking the day after a man inflicted knife injuries on an least eight worshippers at a Moscow synagogue, FEOR spokesman Borukh Gorin said that Jewish communities need state support.

Russia's chief rabbi, Berl Lazar, said that the victims of the 11 January attack were still in a state of shock but "they will feel better soon."

"The most important thing for us is what will happen tomorrow, that this should not happen again, that law-enforcement bodies should really take this situation under control and understand that there is a real threat in Russia now, not only for Jews," Lazar said.

Police initially said they had no reason to believe that the attacker -- identified as 20-year-old Moscow resident Aleksandr Koptsev – was linked to any extremist group. However, prosecutor Anatoly Zuyev said on 12 January that investigators had found Nazi literature and regalia in his apartment.

The Russian Foreign Ministry, the Moscow Patriarchate, and the head of Russia’s Roman Catholic community have all condemned the attack.

Save your propaganda Lukasz lest someone link to sites that claim the same about Poland:

http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/669810.html
http://warsaw.usembassy.gov/poland/antisemitism_eng.html
http://www.tau.ac.il/Anti-Semitism/asw2004/poland.htm

And that's with only 5,000–10,000 Jews in Poland out of a total population of close to 40 million.

Oh this bad Poland, they are building Jewish Museum, indeed what a anti-Semitic act! You are psoting some outdated and irrelevant links, cause you cannot nothing serious in the internet.

And that's with only 5,000–10,000 Jews in Poland out of a total population of close to 40 million.

The rest was brutally murdered by Russians in the concentration camps, don’t you know? ROTFL

Let me see if I have this straight. Someone posts an article that claims x about Ukraine, somebody else posts a link to an article from the same website that claims x about Russia, and you arrive to inform the second person that you might post something that claims x about Poland?

Not surprised at all by these stastics, and wouldn't be surprised to learn there are solid statistics from many other regions of Russia regarding substantiated anti-Semitism. Every Americanized Russian I've ever talked to, (and eventually, most Greeks, Armenians, etc.) reveals an apparently ineradicable strain of Anti=Semitism. I am no longer surprised to find it among people who seem otherwise intelligent.

From my experience, Russianized Americans are generally more anti-Semitic than Americanized Russians.

Silly - and Russia has the same type of memorials. How about agreeing that anti-Semitism is bad wherever it is encountered (Russia, Ukraine, Poland, US, Germany, FreeRepublic - we have a member [spanalot] who uses materials from "Zavtra" newspaper).

Of course I agree. It is jb6 who post about anti-semitism in Ukraine over and over. Strangly he fails to find anything anti-semitic in Russia, so I decided to help him a bit. Note that normally I didn't posted even a single article about anti-semitism in Russia, Ukraine etc.

Next we'll be hearing of his Ukrainification plan, to eliminate all non-Ukraine culture from Ukraine.

I don't think jb6 has defended anti-semitism in Russia. Usually when he posts the Urkainian information, in my opinion, it's in response to some claims made by Ukrainian nationalists who have somehow found there way to FR.

Let's examine that assertion.

For example, let's see what jb6 had to say about a post concerning anti-semitism in Russia.

"I love how it's always mentioned, oops, never mentioned, that the MPs who submitted this made up 4.4% of the Duma. Oh that's right, if you mention that, then the whole hit piece falls apart from lack of credibility. But if you don't mention the 450 and 4.4% fact then you have something to attack with." - 6 posted on 01/27/2005 10:33:54 AM CST by jb6

So in other words, 4.4 percent of the duma means nothing, but one guy in Ukraine means everything.

jb6 doesn't like it when people think Russians antisemitic, but he wants to put the same exact smear on the Ukrainians. He wants people to hate Ukrainains at least as much as he thinks we all hate Russians. He is the lowest of hypocrites.

Yeah one guy who was a bigtime leader in the current Presidents Party and invited David Duke to Ukraine.

Is that how you got caught up in this? Reading Duke's web site you decided it was high time you support anti-semitism in Ukraine through you're trusted freind Soros?

In case you don't know, it's Yulia Timoshenko (the oligarch you recently developed a fondness for) who is aligned with the neo-nazis in Ukraine- the UNA-UNSO.

But lttle RussiaFirst lunatics like you will side even with nazis, muslims and oligarchs to attack the hated Yushchenko, agent of the CIA.

I don't know what you mean by Russianized Americans( Americans still living in America who have exposed themselves actively to Russian influence through Russian friends,study,etc., or Americans who have gone to Russia to live? or what? I think both of these are a lot rarer phenomenon than Russians from Russia who have come to live permanently or semipermanently in America. There are a lot of them, and they are very sensitive to anti-semitism as it exists in America, even as marginal as it is compared to their own native land.

David Duke is racist, which is why Yushchenko's Nazi freinds invited him to Ukraine.

You already defend Soros though so it hardly surprises me that you defend racism and anti-semitism.

Jb6’s amounts of threads about Ukraine is much larger than other Freepers together. If any Ukrainians post in this forum, this is only because of him and his Goobbels's style propaganda. And btw they are Ukrainain nationalists in the same way as you are Russian nationalist...

What's even sicker is this stupidity we keep pushing on Israel and in the middle east...now we have Hamas winning the elections, or didn't anyone ever think that that would happen?

In Russia the Police come and help patrol the synogogues, Jews return to live, the Mayor of the Capital is a Jew and the PM is half Jewish. In your EU socialist Ukraine, Nazi UNA-UNSO marches in the streets, Jews are beaten the cops don't do a thing and the half the winning Oranges were flat out fascists. But you take more to the Ukrainian model from your comments of flat out support for them.

David Duke is racist

That must be why he lived in Russia for so many years. he wanted to get vibes from the country that brought the world the Protocols of Zion.

I defend President Bush when little commie punks like you call him a nazi racist too.

David Duke was against the war in Iraq, just like Putin was. He supported Saddam because he hates jews, just like Putin supports the Ayatollahs who've sworn to wipe Israel from the map.

It's funny that you accuse other of supporting nazis when you actually support Yulia Timoshenko whose party is allied with the neo-nazi UNA-UNSO. You even called her a "real Ukrainian" as opposed to Yushchenko and Yanukovych. Well Ukraine for "real" Ukrainians, after all.

You do know that Timoshenko took money from Boris Berezovsky during the election don't you. That's another oligarch gangster in your corner. You don't like how oligarchs looted Russia, but it's just fine with you if they loot the Ukrainians you hate.
