You tell me that all the pogroms in Central Asia came out of nowhere, I say the feelings of hostility existed before. You rely on the word of your relatives, and I tell you they aren't objective.

I am talking about soviet times. You are talking about after the collapse of USSR. I've known many Jews who lived in Russia and would never go to live in Central Asia. They have their own community in Russia.

Right, because you tend to stay in the environment you are used to. My friend is from Uzbekistan, and he is not a Buherian Jew, he is Ashkenazi like me. He said that they had a Jew in the main hospital in Tashkent giving circumcision to those who wanted them, in the open.

Take the news about the crash of a Novosibirsk-bound flight. There are regular flights that are getting filled with people who shuttle between Israel and Novosibirsk. Just because your picture of the world is limited, doesn't mean that you are right.

What does this have to do with anything? I have an aunt in Bryansk, so? You are trying to shock me with the fact that there are still some Jews left in Russia?

Right, everything magically changed aftter the collapse, and people learned to hate, LOL!

I should ask all the Jews I've known in Russia, whether they are circumsized and HOW they managed to get that. LOL!

There wouldn't be a regular flight from Israel to Bryansk, would there be? Since you are being slow, there is a large Jewish community in Novosibirsk and it's not "still left", there is a regular flight, get it?

Ask those Jews in Novosibirsk, what they think about the idea of living in Tashkent.
