Russian MPs seek ban on Jewish groups
By Arkady Ostrovsky
Published: January 25 2005 02:00 | Last updated: January 25 2005 02:00

A group of nationalist Russian parliament members yesterday wrote to the prosecutor-general asking him to ban all religious and ethnic Jewish organisations as "extremists" in the latest sign of growing anti-Semitism and chauvinism in the country.


As world leaders prepare to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp in Poland, some 500 nationalists, including 19 members of the Russian Duma, the lower house of parliament, wrote that the hatred of Jews was justified. They argued that most criminal cases of ethnic hatred were started by Jews while "Russian patriots" were simply acting in self-defence when promoting their nationalistic slogans.

"Let us assure you, Mr Prosecutor-General, that there are a large number of well-established facts which lead to the indisputable conclusion: the negative assessment by Russian patriots of typical Jewish qualities and [their] actions against non-Jews are based on true facts and what is more these actions are not accidental, but prescribed by Judaism and have been practised over the past 2000 years," the letter said. "Therefore, statements and publications against Jews are self-defence, which may not be stylistically correct, but justified in its essence."

The letter, signed by 15 members of the nationalist Rodina (Motherland) party and four members of the Communist party, is the latest signal of growing chauvinism and xenophobia which over the past few years has spilled into mainstream Russian politics.

"A few years ago nationalistic statements were considered unacceptable. Now they are entering the main-stream of Russian politics," said Galina Kozhevnikova, the author of a recent report on radical nationalism in Russia.

She says that while it would be wrong to say that President Vladimir Putin - who is due to attend the Auschwitz memorial - provokes xenophobia, "he does little to prevent it either".

The letter comes less than two weeks after two Rabbis were attacked in a Moscow subway by a group of youths.

Alexander Lakshin, a US citizen and one of the victims of the attack, said he and his friend with two teenage brothers-in-law were on their way home when they were chased by a group of young people. "We told the kids to run for their lives. But they could not run fast enough, so we took their hands and dragged them through the underpass," Mr Lakshin said.

Mr Lakshin managed to protect the children, but was kicked to the ground and beaten. "They shouted the usual 'kill the Yids' and smashed a bottle on my head." Bleeding, he managed to escape to a 24-hour grocery store. "There were two security guards there and we asked them to call the police. But all they said was: 'Please leave - you will stain our shop with your blood'."

According to Global Forum Against Anti-Semitism, an Israeli government body, the number of violent anti-Semitic incidents in Russia rose from four to 55 in the past year. Another report on global anti-Semitism released by the US State Department says the number of skinheads who have committed most of these crimes has increased from few dozen in 1992 to more than 50,000 in 2004.

Attacks by skinheads and neo-Nazis in Russia are not limited to Jews. People from the Caucasus, Muslims and Africans are regularly subjected to ethnic crimes.

According to recent opinion polls, 53 per cent of Russia's population subscribe to the idea of "Russia for the Russians", 48 per cent think that the influence of Jews in politics and business should be restricted and 43 per cent say there should be restrictions on natives of the Caucasus living in Russia. Two nationalistic parties gained 20 per cent in the last parliamentary elections.

Xenophobia is the main election platform of the Rodina party, which was brought to life by Kremlin spin-doctors before last year's parliamentary elections to take votes from the Communists and guarantee a majority for the pro-Kremlin United Russia party.

However, over the past year, Rodina's nationalistic ideas appear to have gained their own momentum. "We have historic experience of this. This is how fascism started in Germany in 1933," said Mr Lakshin.

Russian lawmakers: Ban Jewish groups

Source:Russia
http://www.turkishweekly.net/news.php?id=2635

Associated Press via THE JERUSALEM POST
25 January 2005

A group of nationalist lawmakers is calling for an investigation aimed
at
outlawing all Jewish organizations in Russia, accusing Jews of inciting
ethnic
hatred and provoking anti-Semitism.

In a letter dated January 13, about 20 members of the lower parliament
house,
the State Duma, asked Prosecutor General Vladimir Ustinov to
investigate
their claims and, if they are confirmed, to launch proceedings "on the
prohibition
in our country of all religious and ethnic Jewish organizations as
extremist."

Arguing that Jews were to blame for anti-Semitism, the authors of the
letter
want Jewish groups outlawed based on legislation against extremism and
fomenting ethnic discord.

"The negative assessments by Russian patriots of the qualities and
actions
against non-Jews that are typical of Jews correspond to the truth,
indeed these
actions are not random but prescribed in Judaism and have been
practiced for
two centuries," says the letter, faxed in part to The Associated Press
by the
office of lawmaker Alexander Krutov.

"Thus," it says, "the statements and publications against Jews that
have
incriminated patriots are self-defense, which is not always
stylistically correct
but is justified in essence".

The stunning call to ban all Jewish groups comes amid concerns of
persistent
anti-Semitism that continues to plague Russia. Jewish leaders have
praised
President Vladimir Putin's government for encouraging religious
tolerance, but
rights groups accuse the authorities of failing to adequately prosecute
the
perpetrators of anti-Semitic and racial violence.

Russia's chief rabbi, Berel Lazar, said the lawmakers were either
insane or
"quite sane but limitlessly cynical" and were hoping to win support "by
playing
the anti-Semitic card."

Speaking with Israel Radio, Lazar called on Russia's chief prosecutor
to move
to expel the legislators from the parliament since, he said, they were
acting
against all religions and were harming Russia.

"Everyone who read this letter surely understood that something
irregular had
taken place. It is a known fact that there are those in parliament who
posses
these views. However, it has been a while since an anti-Jewish theme
has been
raised, and suddenly everyone is talking about it", Lazar told the
radio.

According to the rabbi, "The timing was not coincidental and was made
on the
same day in which the UN commemorated 60 years since the liberation of
Nazi
death camps. President Putin is slated to visit Auschwitz in the near
future and
they probably wanted to express their objection to the upcoming visit
by
sending this letter."

With Putin planning to join events this week commemorating the
liberation of
Auschwitz by Soviet troops, Russia's Holocaust Foundation head Alla
Gerber
said it was "horrible that as we're marking the 60th anniversary of
this tragic
and great day ... we can speak of the danger of fascism in the
countries that
defeated fascism."

She said that while the Russian state itself is no longer anti-Semitic,
there
are "anti-Semitic campaigns that are led by all sorts of
organizations."

"The economic situation is ripe for this, an enemy is needed, and the
enemy
is well-known, traditional," Gerber said.

Responding to the lawmakers' letter, Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom
said on
Israel Radio that the Israeli government "will act on every level to
combat
this. We do not let any group or country live peacefully with phenomena
like
these."

"There is a large international call to arms against anti-Semitic
incidents
anywhere in the world. To my great sorrow, these incidents have been
happening
a lot lately, but we have to fight anti-Semitism anywhere it is."

Echoing anti-Semitic tracts of the Czarist era, the letter's authors
accuse
Jews of working against the interests of the countries where they live
and of
monopolizing power worldwide. They say the United States "has become an
instrument for achieving the global aims of Judaism."

"It is possible to say that the entire democratic world today is under
the
monetary and political control of international Judaism, which
high-profile
bankers are openly proud of," the letter says.

Along with outlawing Jewish organizations, the lawmakers call for the
prosecution of "individuals responsible for providing these groups with
state and
municipal property, privileges and state financing."

The prosecutor general's office could not immediately be reached for
comment
on the letter, which the Interfax news agency said was signed by
lawmakers
from the nationalist Rodina and Liberal Democratic parties as well as
the
Communist Party.

Domestic

Letter by Russian nationalist on Jewish extremism


Jewish good fortune, Russian tears.

Representatives of Russian society demand from the Procurator General of the Russian Federation the suppression of illegal propagation of Jewish national and religious extremism.

Dear Mr. Procurator General:
On 18 December 2003 the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir V. Putin, brought up the following statistics in the course of a televised address: in 1999 there were four convictions under article 282 of the Russian Federation Criminal Code on inciting inter-ethnic hatred. In 2000 there were 10. And in 2003 “more than 60 criminal investigations were made into cases of inciting inter-ethnic discord. Of these, 20 cases went to court and guilty verdicts were handed down in 17-20 cases.” (President's live television dialogue with the Russian people, 18 December 2003, excerpts available at: http://president.kremlin.ru/eng/speeches/2003/12/18/1200_57480.shtml).

Who is shouting “stop, thief!”?

The overwhelming majority of these cases are initiated by Jewish activists or organizations, who charge their defendants with the “anti-Semitism.”
But the overwhelming majority of those accused and convicted are Russian patriots.
Now they have been joined by the well-known independent politician and pamphleteer, the former head of Goskompechat’ (the State Publishing Commission) B. S. Mironov.

We recognize that the statements of Russian patriots regarding Jews frequently have a sharply negative and excessively emotional character, unacceptable in public discussion, and constitute what the law regards as extremism.
None of the above-mentioned trials, however, ever examined the reason for this sharpness, the original source of this extremism in the given inter-ethnic conflict.

Indeed the chief problem that must be elucidated in investigations and trials is: do the sharply negative assessments of the Jews by Russian patriots correspond in essence to the truth about the Jews (against whom they are directed) or do they not?
If they do not correspond to the truth about the Jews, then the discussion can deal with the defamation of Jews and with the incitement of religious and inter-ethnic discord.
But if they do correspond to the truth, then such assessments, apart from and independent of their emotionalism, cannot be qualified as defamatory, as incitement to discord, and the like. (For example, to say a decent person is a criminal is defamatory to him; but to name someone who has committed a crime a criminal - this is a truthful statement of facts.)

Furthermore, since there are two sides in this inter-ethnic conflict (the accuser and the accused), it follows that one must clear up: which of the sides actually started this conflict in the first place and was responsible for it, and whether the actions of the accused might not be acts of self-defense in response to acts of aggression by the accusing side?

We ask you to verify, Mr. Procurator General, that on these matters there is a large quantity of universally recognized facts and sources from around the world, on the basis of which it is possible to draw the indisputable conclusion that: the Russian patriots’ negative assessments of typical Jewish qualities and actions with respect to non-Jews correspond to truth; it being known that these actions are not chance occurrences, but are prescribed in Judaism and have been practiced for two millenia. Thus, the incriminating statements and publications made by patriots against the Jews constitute self-defense, which may not always be correct in terms of style, but remains nevertheless justified in essence.

The Morality of Jewish Fascism

To corroborate this, we draw your attention to the book Kitsur Shulkhan Arukh officially published in Moscow in 2001 by the Congress of Jewish Religious Organizations and Associations in Russia (KEROOR).
This is a condensed version of the Jewish law code, the Sulkhan Arukh, compiled several centuries ago on the basis of the Talmud and required in practice to this day.
In the introduction to the book the head of KEROOR, Rabbi Zinoviy Kogan makes the frank acknowledgement (the italics are ours) that:

“The editorial council of KEROOR considered it necessary in this translation to omit some instructions of the halakha [Jewish law] . . . whose inclusion in the publication in the Russian language would be perceived by the population of Russia, which does not adhere to Judaism, as an unprovoked insult.
The reader who wishes to read the Kitsur Shulkhan Arukh in the ideally complete volume, is invited to come to a yeshiva in order to study this and many other holy books in the original.”

That is, one of the leaders of Russian Jewry himself recognized that some regulations of the Judaic code of behavior were insulting to the non-Jewish population of Russia, but considers it possible to invite his fellow tribesmen to yeshivas – the Jewish schools, which are financed from the state and local budgets – to study these insults. Yet, even in this expurgated publication we find the following provisions:

- In the “Laws about the idolatry” it is stated that “it is forbidden to use the figure of two crossed sticks, which they worship.”
That is to say, Christianity is considered a variety of idolatry and all regulations regarding relations with idolaters (“akum”) imply in Russia (a country where the Orthodox religion predominates), first of all, the orthodox Christians (page. 389).

- The instruction on seeing a “house of idolatry” (i.e., place of worship) is to pronounce this curse upon it: “G-d will uproot the house of the proud,” and at the sight of a destroyed temple one is to exclaim: “The G-d of retribution has appeared!” Moreover, this opinion on the instruction is also advanced: “some maintain that this pertains to the houses of the non-Jews, who live in the world, calm and wealthy” (pp. 389-390).

- Non-Jews are equated with excrement. (pp. 47 and 48).

- It is prohibited to train non-Jews in a craft. (p. 390).

- “The Jewess ought not to help non-Jews with childbirth.” (p. 390).

- “If a man took a loan from a non-Jew who then died, the man has the right to refuse to pay back the loan to the deceased's son, who does not know accurately whether or not this Jew was in debt to his father.” (p. 405).

- In money calculations “If a non-Jew made a mistake against himself, it is permitted to use his error.” (p. 406).

- “It is forbidden to betray Jew into the hands of a non-Jew, whether the matter has to do with the Jew's life or his property; and it does not matter whether this is done by some action or by words; and it is forbidden to report him or to point out the places where he has hidden his property.” (p. 408) - we imperatively request that it be noted that this concerns the behavior prescribed for Jews in the context of investigations and trials.

Of course, among the thirteen major principles of Judaism is the requirement that they must await a Jewish world ruler who will appoint Jews to rule above other peoples of the world: “Unconditionally do I believe in the arrival of the mashiakh [messiah], and, although his coming may be delayed, nevertheless each day I will await him.” (p. 485).

– In the teachings of the Orthodox Church this expected ruler of the world is identified with the antichrist, about whom Jesus Christ warned (John 5:43), as did the Apostle Paul (2 Thess. 2), and the holy fathers of the Church. This is an important and integral part of Orthodox teachings.

In the introduction to this book the head of KEROOR writes that “the Talmud is the unsurpassed monument of Jewish genius,” and this distillation of its morality, “the Kitsur Sulkhan Arukh is the anthology of the Jewish civilization of our time. . . . This book is completely necessary for you. You can act in the manner that it prescribes and be confident that you have carried out the will of the Ex-lted.”

And the Chief Rabbi of Russia, Adolf Shayevich, notes in the preface: “Interest in this book exceeded our most daring expectations. A huge quantity of grateful responses from the most different people has continued all this time to come in to our address. An even larger quantity of letters contain imperative requests for help in acquiring this publication.”

We would suppose that already on the basis of this one official Jewish publication the law-enforcement agencies should, in accordance with article 282 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, suppress the propagation of a religion that kindles hatred among the Jews for the rest of the “population of Russia.”
All the more, if we take a glance at “the ideally complete volume of the unsurpassed monument of Judaic morals” – the Shulkhan Arukh, that is studied in the yeshivas.

We will use translations of it from the Amsterdam Judaic publication, made by a judicial expert, the Hebrew scholar Dr. K. Ecker, for the court trial in Germany in 1883 (Dr. K Ecker. Der “Judenspiegel” im Lichte der Wahrheit, eine wissentschaftliche Untersuchung. Paderborn. 1884; Russian translation: Dr. K. Ekker. Yevreyskoe zertsalo v svete istiny. Nauchnoe issledovanie. Moskva, 1906).

This legal case was brought to court by Jews who were upset because one of their tribesmen, Justus Brieman, converted to Christianity and published the anti-human laws of the Shulkhan Arukh and of the Talmud.
The law court ruled that the man who published the work was in the right, after finding that his translation corresponded to the original text.
Dr. Ekker only corrected small inaccuracies.
We will cite below characteristic extracts from the text as corrected by him, together with the references to specific Jewish sources (drawing confidence from both the qualifications of the German Hebrew scholar and the authority of the German law court).

- “His [the non-Jew's] seed is considered like the seed of cattle” (Tosefta – an addition to the Talmud. Ketubot, 3 b). “For [dead] servants and maids . . . words of comfort should not be said to their relatives, but it is necessary to say to him [the Jewish master]: ‘may God compensate you for your loss’, just as one says to a man whose bull or donkey has died.” (Iore de'a 377-1).

- “It is forbidden to save them [non-Jews, akums] when they are close to death. For example, when you see that one of them has fallen into the sea, do not rescue him, even if he wants to pay. . . . It is permitted to test medicine on an akum to see whether or not it is effective.” (Iore de'a 158-1).

- “The money of akums is essentially like goods with no owner, and the one who arrives first may take possession of them.” “With respect to an akum there is no fraud.” (Khoshen ha-mishpat 156-5, Khaga; 227-26; 348-2, Khaga).

- “When a Jew has robbed an akum and they force him [the Jew] to take an oath., then he must in his heart proclaim his oath invalid, because he has been forced to take it.” (Iore de'a 329-1, Khaga). Note: this again concerns the behavior of Jews during investigations and trials!

- “When it has been established about someone that he has betrayed a Jew or his money three times to an akum, then it is necessary to seek out ways and means to squeeze him out of the world.” “As to expenditures needed for squeezing a traitor from the world, all the inhabitants of a locality are obliged to contribute.” (Khoshen ha-mishpat 388-15 and -16).

- “It is permitted to kill a traitor in any place, even in our time. It is permissible to kill him early, before he manages to make a denunciation [powerful enough to cause ‘bodily or monetary loss, no matter how small’] . . . and everyone who is the first to kill acquires merit.” (Khoshen ha-mishpat 388-10).

- “The Jew-free-thinker, i.e., he who carries out the divine service of akums . . . to kill all such people is a good deed. When there is authority to kill them publicly by the sword, then let this be carried out; but if there is not, then they must be entangled in every way possible in order to cause to them death. For example, when you see that one of them has fallen into a well and in the well there is a ladder, then hurry to take out it, saying: ‘I have a major concern; I need to get my son down from the roof, and I will bring it right back to you,’ or something like that.” (Khoshen ha-mishpat 425-5).

Provocateurs and Haters of Humanity

It should be noted that even the last prescriptions for killing – are to this day is not only theory, but also practice.
Thus, the former chairman of Kharkov Jewish community E. Khodos published proofs ("An Axe above Orthodoxy, or who killed my father.” Kharkov, 1999) showing that members of the Jewish Chabad movement carried out the 1990 murder of priest-Jew Father Aleksandr Men’ (who “carried out the divine service of the Akums” and dreamed about the creation of a “Jewish Orthodox Church,” something that is considered a criminal offense according to the laws of the state of Israel).
But the authorities in the Russian Federation have not been interested in such evidence.
Criminals are supposed to be sought only among “Russian anti-Semites”.

We would like to emphasize that the majority of anti-Jewish actions throughout the world are constantly arranged by Jews themselves with the purpose of provoking punitive measures against patriots.
The best-known case in Russia is that of Arkady Norinsky, who in 1988 sent out anti-Semitic leaflets in the name of the organization “Pamyat’” in order to impel authorities to suppress it.
In this he had the help of his fellow tribesman, the editor in chief of the journal Znamya, G. Baklanov, who published the leaflet in a print run of several millions.
It was only after this that the provocation was uncovered. (“Znamya” No. 10, 1988; “Pravda”, 19 November1988; “Komsomol'skaya Pravda”, 24 November1988; “Ogonyok” No. 9, 1989).

From recent cases it is possible to mention a strange series of reports of vandalism that took place in 1998 and 1999. On the night of 13 May 1998, an explosion occurred at a synagogue in the Mar'inaya grove in Moscow damaging a wall.
During the same day “a burning canister of gasoline” was placed not far from the synagogue in Otradny.
In Irkutsk “a Jewish cemetery was desecrated” – of course the uproar in the international media was loud and all of them put the blame, without any evidence, on some sort of Russian Nazis (“Nezavisimaya Gazeta,” 15 May 1998).

But when shortly after that, in 1999, a synagogue in Birobidzhan was destroyed, it was established in court that the Jews themselves hired a man to do this. (“Radonezh”, 1999, No. 15-16), but the democratic mass media were silent about this.

On the basis of the rules and practices of Jewish behavior that have been cited above, it is not difficult to understand why a constant companion of Jews among all peoples has been notorious “anti-Semitism”, i.e., the non-acceptance of Judaic morality.
For this very reason Jews did not have an equality of rights in the Christian states and attained it only as a result of anti-monarchist bourgeois revolutions.

Thus in the Russian Empire, the Jews, after unsuccessful attempts by the Tsarist government to give them the status “of everybody else,” lost their equality in the 19th Century, not because they were Jewish by blood – since the empire was multinational; nor because they were not Christian – since the Muslims and Buddhists and others were not Christians either; but because the Jewish religion is anti-Christian and misanthropic to the point of ritual murder.

Many examples of this ritual extremism were documented in courts. (For example, see the study of the well-known scholar V. I. Dal’, Rozyskanie o ubinenii yevreyami khristianskikh mladentsev i upotreblenii krovi ikh [“Criminal investigation into the murder by Jews of Christian infants and the use of their blood.”] St. Petersburg, 1884).

To all this it is possible also to add the words of the Prayer of Shefokh, in which the Jews on the eve of their Passover issue a call their “god” “to exterminate from the universe” all other peoples.

Jewish Agressiveness as a Form of Satanism

The spiritual reason for this hatred of humanity is explained in the Gospels in the words of Christ regarding the Jewish spiritual leaders who rejected the Son of the God: “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning . . .” (John 8:19-44).

This elucidation of Judaic aggressiveness as a form of Satanism is generally accepted in Orthodoxy.
Well-known philosopher-intellectuals who cannot be suspected of anti-Semitism expressed it.
For example, A.F. Losev (in “Istochnik” Moscow, 1996, No. 4. pp. 117-122), Father Pavel Florensky (in the book “Sakharna”, by V. V. Rozanov. Moscow. Izdatel'stvo “Respublika”, 1998, p. 360), and Father Sergiy Bulgakov: “the Jews who were rejecting Christ became the “laboratory for all sorts of spiritual diseases, poisoning the world and particularly Christian humanity.” (“Vestnik RKhD”, Paris, 1973 No. 108-110. p. 72).

Even the Judeo-Christian Father Aleksandr Men’, who was struggling against “anti-Semitism”, asserted that the Jew who rejects Christianity, “betrays himself and easily falls under the power of dark forces.” (the journal “Yevrei v SSSR”, 1975, No. 11).

This, unfortunately is what happened with the larger part of the Jewish people (in contrast to its smaller part, which accepted Christianity).
But they do not want to recognize this and believe that that statement of the truth by Christ and after him by Orthodox Christians is “insulting” to the Jews.

Jewish plaintiffs frequently direct their charge of “anti-Semitism” against this essential part of Orthodox doctrine itself, demanding that it actually be banned (as in the case with the textbook “Osnov pravoslavnoy kul'tury” [“Bases of Orthodox Culture”]).

But we cannot agree with banning the Orthodox doctrine about the idea of history as the struggle of the forces of good (on the side of the Church) against the forces of evil (the side opposed to religion, that prepares for the reign of the antichrist).
Following the precepts of the Orthodox Fathers of the Church, we also cannot follow the false understanding that is spreading according to which tolerance is humbleness before the sin, evil, heresies, and in this case Satanism.

The Christian must precisely from the respect for the image of God placed in each person, and for the sake of saving his soul, frankly indicate to Jews their dangerous deviation from the truth into Satanism.
It is in this that, from a Christian point of view, the manifestation of authentic love for people consists.

“Tolerant” indulgence of heresies and Satanism only contributes to their spiritual loss – and under their strong pressure – to that of their many victims.

One should immediately answer also the possible objection that the Russian patriots, who level charges at the Jews, do not always distinguish between religious and non-religious Jews, particularly since the majority of Jews do not consider themselves believers in Judaism and do not study the “Shulkhan Arukh.”

But many generations of the self-contained life of Jews among other peoples (in this context there developed the idea of the Jewish kahal as a “state within a state” - see the books by Jewish authors: “Antisemitizm v drevnem mire” [“Antisemitism in the ancient world”] by S. Lur'e and the “Kniga Kagala” [“The Book of the Kahal”] by Yakov Brafman) led to the situation where the morality of the “Shulkhan Arukh” became a part of Jewish national self-consciousness even in its secular form. This conclusion was drawn by the well-known Jewish writer and sociologist Hannah Arendt:

“Precisely in the process of secularization was borne completely real Jewish chauvinism. . . . The idea of the chosenness of the Jews became . . . the idea that Jews supposedly were the salt of the earth. From now on, the old religious concept of chosenness was no longer the essence of Judaism; it became instead the essence of Jewishness.”

(“Antisemitism”//”Sintaksis"Paris, No. 26, 1989) [English readers see Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism, New York: Schocken, 2004. p. 99.]

This “real Jewish chauvinism” and the unceremonious spirit of the “Shulkhan Arukh” were clearly visible in the course of the destruction the USSR and the post-communistic reforms in our country and were expressed in the illegal appropriation of state property as “goods with no owner,” and also in the composition of the new ruling stratum.
“The government is full of Jews,” acknowledged the Rabbi Adolf Shayevich ("NH- Figury i litsa”, 1998, No. 16.).
Thus, their corresponding influence on the life of the country proved to be completely disproportionate to their numbers (0,16 % according to the data of last census) to the detriment of the interests of all the other peoples of the country and especially the Russian people who formed the country.

The Jewish Revolution

The well-known Jewish publicist L. Radzikhovsky calls this a ‘democratic-capitalist revolution’ and says: “The Jewish and Jewish-oriented intelligentsia, which constitutes in Russia one of the chief carriers of western-liberal ideology, became the ideologist of this revolution.’

Therefore ‘Jews have a larger specific weight in Russian politics and business than in the politics and business of any other Christian country.”

This he calls the “good luck of the Jews” which was also the title of his article (“Yevreyskoe schast'e” in “Novoe Russkoe Slovo,” 17 January 1996.)”

The Jewish oligarchs themselves frankly described on Israeli television (2nd program, 3 October 1996) the sources of their “good luck” in the revolution that they perfected (the italics are ours):

“The degree of corruption in Russia completely corresponds to the degree of transformations in Russia. I do not think that in the hands of the officials of Israel . . . there is the possibility to redistribute wealth worth tens, hundreds of millions and billions . . . this was – no one's, this was – the state's, this was everyone's!
So here, an official had the capability to determine by drawing up a list: this belongs to you, or to someone else. . . . A good fight, which led to the result that we have today.” (Boris Berezovsky).

“Incomes like this and profits like this, which could be earned in Russia, could not be earned anywhere else. . . . A big share of capital there, 50 percent, belongs to Jewish business.” (Vitaly Malkin, now a member of the presidium of Russian Jewish Congress).

Vladimir Gusinsky, the first chairman of Russian Jewish Congress, in that broadcast said that one of the reasons for Jewish luck is their “ferocity.”
“It is not so much the rules; it is more the rule of force, it is more the rule of aggression.”
“For the first time in thousands years, since the moment the Jews settled in Russia, we have obtained real authority in this country,” states another Jewish writer, E. Topol’, in an “Open letter to Berezovsky, Gusinsky, Smolensky, Khodorkovsky and the rest of the oligarchs” (“Otkrytoe pis'mo Berezovskomu, Gusinskomu, Smolenskomu, Khodorkovskomu i ostal'nym oligarkham,” in “Argumenty i Fakty”, 1998, No 38).

In this connection, Topol’ and other sensitive Jews (for example, Yu. Nudel'man in "Sovyetskaya Rossiya", 20 June 2002) emphasize that the destructive and self-interested policy of Jewish oligarchs, which degrades the Russian people, provokes the hostility of the Russian people to the Jews.

This obvious fact was noted even by the ambassador of the Kingdom of Belgium to the Russian Federation, André Mernier, in his final report on his work, sent out to all foreign embassies and to his colleagues in the diplomatic corps in September 2004, before his departure from Moscow.

We request that the Procurator General's office regard this opinion of Topol’ and Nudel'man as an acknowledgement that it is the accusing (Jewish) side that is responsible for the contemporary aggravation of the Russo-Jewish conflict.

This is especially true, given the fact that in order to keep their authority and their illegally seized “un-owned” state property, this ruling stratum conducts a policy designed to bring about the decay of the people's morals and the removal of spiritual values, attempting to turn the people into an animal mass without faith and tradition – the more easily to govern them and the more easily to suppress their resistance.

In particular, it was precisely the Jews who put up furious resistance to teaching “Osnov pravoslavnoy kyl'tury” [“The Bases of Orthodox Culture”] in the schools, and it is precisely on the initiative of Jews that we, the Russian people who formed the country, are forbidden to indicate our nationality in our passports.
The Chef Rabbi of the Russian Federation, Adolf Shayevich, in an interview with the “Los Angeles Times” (1 October 1997) confirmed that precisely the Jews insisted on the eliminating the entry for “nationality” [in passports], and he explained the reason for this by citing the fact that “Jews have taken high posts in the administration.”

That is, even they themselves realize what kind of idea non-Jews have formed about their nationality, and therefore they attempt to hide their nationality.
This also says a lot.

Among the other numerous examples of the removal of spiritual values we cannot but draw your attention, Mr. Procurator General, to the policy of the Minister of Culture Mikhail Shvydkoy (who now leads a government agency for the matters of culture) and its television program “Kul'turnaya revolyutsiya” [“Cultural Revolution”], in which Russian patriotism and Orthodox traditions regularly are degraded.

It propagandizes obscenity and the idea that sex is the engine of culture” (7 March 2002).

All protests of the Russian community against the scandalous and, in essence, provocative activity of this “chief man of culture in the country” have proven futile.

Moreover Shvydkoy and his associates have the central channels of Russian television at their disposal for their attacks, while the Orthodox patriot defendants have the tiny print runs [of publications], for which they are investigated and brought to trial.
This inequality of opportunity can also lead them involuntarily to the excessive emotionalism, especially when they the rebuff the blasphemous and insolent anti-Russian actions of persons of Jewish origin.

But this emotionalism of defendants driven into a corner should not be mixed up with aggressive, offensive emotionalism.
The Orthodox person is not allowed to be aggressive, but he is called on to protect its people and their sacred things.

The example of this was given by Christ Himself, who by the whip was banished from the temple by the merchants who had profaned it.

What is permissible to whom?

In comparison with the statements of the accused Russian patriots, much more aggressive statements by Jews regarding non-Jews are printed in Jewish newspapers published in the Russian Federation.

For example, in the organ of the Russian Jewish Congress, ‘Yevreyskie novosti’ (2002, No. 16, page 9) the Knesset deputy A. Lieberman called for the forcible expulsion of the Palestinians from Israel.
Accordingly the Palestinians – in violation of UN Security Council resolutions! – are not only thrown out of their homeland (4 million refugees), but their activists are murdered along with their families.
Thus does the Shulkhan Arukh show up in the state policy of Israel.

And the Jews of the Russian Federation support it.
The Russian Jewish Congress states that one of its aims is “to conduct actions of solidarity with the people of Israel, carrying out political lobbying for the interests of Israel” (Yevreyskie novosti, 2002 No. 15, p. 5).
The same goal is also pursued by the state Institute for the Study of Israel and the Near East, the leader of which, Yevgeny Satanovsky, simultaneously headed the Russian Jewish Congress.

Jewish communities all over the world carry out similar “political lobbying” for the interests of international Jewry to the detriment of the interests of the countries in which they live, and particularly in the USA.
That state has become an instrument for the attainment of the global aims of Jewry.
And they try to mask the racism of their Shulkhan Arukh by slapping the charge of anti-Semitism (i.e., allegedly racial hatred) on all those who do not agree with their morality, their activities, their wars.

But such a reversal of concepts is a crude forgery, as should be clear to any impartial judge.

One can say that the whole democratic world today has fallen under the financial and political control of international Jewry, of which eminent bankers (Jacques Attali and others) are openly proud.

And we do not see it as desirable that our Russia, against whose revival a permanent preventive war without rules is being conducted, should wind up among such unfree countries.

Therefore we, both in order to protect our fatherland and for personal self-defense, are forced to turn to you, Mr. Procurator General, with the imperative request that within the shortest period you verify the scandalous facts presented above and, if they are confirmed, on the basis of the corresponding articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation's Law “on opposing extremist activity” (2002) and article 13 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation (“the creation and activity of public associations, the aim of which is directed towards kindling social, racial, national, and religious discord are prohibited”) to officially institute proceedings for the prohibition in our country of all religious and national Jewish associations as extremist.

We also request that persons responsible for assigning to these associations state and municipal property, privileges, and state financing, be called to account regardless of the posts they occupy.

V. M. Klykov, people's artist of Russia,
A. N. Krutov, Deputy to the State Duma, editor in chief of the magazine Russkiy Dom,

Letter by Russian nationalist on Jewish extremism
http://www.davesdiatribe.com/editorials/russian_letter.htmÂ

Jewish good fortune, Russian tears.

Representatives of Russian society demand from the Procurator General
of the
Russian Federation the suppression of illegal propagation of Jewish
national
and religious extremism.

Dear Mr. Procurator General:

On 18 December 2003 the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir
V.
Putin, brought up the following statistics in the course of a televised
address:
in 1999 there were four convictions under article 282 of the Russian
Federation
Criminal Code on inciting inter-ethnic hatred. In 2000 there were 10.
And in
2003 “more than 60 criminal investigations were made into cases of
inciting
inter-ethnic discord. Of these, 20 cases went to court and guilty
verdicts were
handed down in 17-20 cases.” (President’s live television dialogue
with the
Russian people, 18 December 2003, excerpts available at:
http://president.kremlin.ru/eng/speeches/2003/12/18/1200_57480.shtml).

Who is shouting “stop, thief!”?

The overwhelming majority of these cases are initiated by Jewish
activists or
organizations, who charge their defendants with the
“anti-Semitism.” But the
overwhelming majority of those accused and convicted are Russian
patriots.
Now they have been joined by the well-known independent politician and
pamphleteer, the former head of Goskompechat’ (the State Publishing
Commission) B. S.
Mironov.

We recognize that the statements of Russian patriots regarding Jews
frequently have a sharply negative and excessively emotional character,
unacceptable in
public discussion, and constitute what the law regards as extremism.
None of
the above-mentioned trials, however, ever examined the reason for this
sharpness, the original source of this extremism in the given
inter-ethnic conflict.

Indeed the chief problem that must be elucidated in investigations and
trials
is: do the sharply negative assessments of the Jews by Russian patriots
correspond in essence to the truth about the Jews (against whom they
are directed)
or do they not? If they do not correspond to the truth about the Jews,
then
the discussion can deal with the defamation of Jews and with the
incitement of
religious and inter-ethnic discord. But if they do correspond to the
truth,
then such assessments, apart from and independent of their
emotionalism, cannot
be qualified as defamatory, as incitement to discord, and the like.
(For
example, to say a decent person is a criminal is defamatory to him; but
to name
someone who has committed a crime a criminal - this is a truthful
statement of
facts.)

Furthermore, since there are two sides in this inter-ethnic conflict
(the
accuser and the accused), it follows that one must clear up: which of
the sides
actually started this conflict in the first place and was responsible
for it,
and whether the actions of the accused might not be acts of
self-defense in
response to acts of aggression by the accusing side?

We ask you to verify, Mr. Procurator General, that on these matters
there is
a large quantity of universally recognized facts and sources from
around the
world, on the basis of which it is possible to draw the indisputable
conclusion
that: the Russian patriots’ negative assessments of typical Jewish
qualities
and actions with respect to non-Jews correspond to truth; it being
known that
these actions are not chance occurrences, but are prescribed in Judaism
and
have been practiced for two millenia. Thus, the incriminating
statements and
publications made by patriots against the Jews constitute self-defense,
which may
not always be correct in terms of style, but remains nevertheless
justified
in essence.

The Morality of Jewish Fascism

To corroborate this, we draw your attention to the book Kitsur Shulkhan
Arukh
officially published in Moscow in 2001 by the Congress of Jewish
Religious
Organizations and Associations in Russia (KEROOR). This is a condensed
version
of the Jewish law code, the Sulkhan Arukh, compiled several centuries
ago on
the basis of the Talmud and required in practice to this day. In the
introduction to the book the head of KEROOR, Rabbi Zinoviy Kogan makes
the frank
acknowledgement (the italics are ours) that:

“The editorial council of KEROOR considered it necessary in this
translation
to omit some instructions of the halakha [Jewish law] . . . whose
inclusion in
the publication in the Russian language would be perceived by the
population
of Russia, which does not adhere to Judaism, as an unprovoked insult.
The
reader who wishes to read the Kitsur Shulkhan Arukh in the ideally
complete
volume, is invited to come to a yeshiva in order to study this and many
other holy
books in the original.”

That is, one of the leaders of Russian Jewry himself recognized that
some
regulations of the Judaic code of behavior were insulting to the
non-Jewish
population of Russia, but considers it possible to invite his fellow
tribesmen to
yeshivas – the Jewish schools, which are financed from the state and
local
budgets – to study these insults. Yet, even in this expurgated
publication we find
the following provisions:

- In the “Laws about the idolatry” it is stated that “it is
forbidden to use
the figure of two crossed sticks, which they worship.” That is to
say,
Christianity is considered a variety of idolatry and all regulations
regarding
relations with idolaters (“akum”) imply in Russia (a country where
the Orthodox
religion predominates), first of all, the orthodox Christians (page.
389).

- The instruction on seeing a “house of idolatry” (i.e., place of
worship)
is to pronounce this curse upon it: “G-d will uproot the house of the
proud,”
and at the sight of a destroyed temple one is to exclaim: “The G-d of
retribution has appeared!” Moreover, this opinion on the instruction
is also advanced:
“some maintain that this pertains to the houses of the non-Jews, who
live in
the world, calm and wealthy” (pp. 389-390).

- Non-Jews are equated with excrement. (pp. 47 and 48).

- It is prohibited to train non-Jews in a craft. (p. 390).

- “The Jewess ought not to help non-Jews with childbirth.” (p.
390).

- “If a man took a loan from a non-Jew who then died, the man has the
right
to refuse to pay back the loan to the deceased’s son, who does not
know
accurately whether or not this Jew was in debt to his father.” (p.
405).

- In money calculations “If a non-Jew made a mistake against himself,
it is
permitted to use his error.” (p. 406).

- “It is forbidden to betray Jew into the hands of a non-Jew, whether
the
matter has to do with the Jew’s life or his property; and it does not
matter
whether this is done by some action or by words; and it is forbidden to
report him
or to point out the places where he has hidden his property.” (p.
408) - we
imperatively request that it be noted that this concerns the behavior
prescribed for Jews in the context of investigations and trials.

Of course, among the thirteen major principles of Judaism is the
requirement
that they must await a Jewish world ruler who will appoint Jews to rule
above
other peoples of the world: “Unconditionally do I believe in the
arrival of
the mashiakh [messiah], and, although his coming may be delayed,
nevertheless
each day I will await him.” (p. 485).

– In the teachings of the Orthodox Church this expected ruler of the
world is
identified with the antichrist, about whom Jesus Christ warned (John
5:43),
as did the Apostle Paul (2 Thess. 2), and the holy fathers of the
Church. This
is an important and integral part of Orthodox teachings.

In the introduction to this book the head of KEROOR writes that “the
Talmud
is the unsurpassed monument of Jewish genius,” and this distillation
of its
morality, “the Kitsur Sulkhan Arukh is the anthology of the Jewish
civilization
of our time. . . . This book is completely necessary for you. You can
act in
the manner that it prescribes and be confident that you have carried
out the
will of the Ex-lted.”

And the Chief Rabbi of Russia, Adolf Shayevich, notes in the preface:
“Interest in this book exceeded our most daring expectations. A huge
quantity of
grateful responses from the most different people has continued all
this time to
come in to our address. An even larger quantity of letters contain
imperative
requests for help in acquiring this publication.”

We would suppose that already on the basis of this one official Jewish
publication the law-enforcement agencies should, in accordance with
article 282 of
the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, suppress the propagation
of a
religion that kindles hatred among the Jews for the rest of the
“population of
Russia.” All the more, if we take a glance at “the ideally complete
volume of
the unsurpassed monument of Judaic morals” – the Shulkhan Arukh,
that is
studied in the yeshivas.

We will use translations of it from the Amsterdam Judaic publication,
made by
a judicial expert, the Hebrew scholar Dr. K. Ecker, for the court trial
in
Germany in 1883 (Dr. K Ecker. Der “Judenspiegel” im Lichte der
Wahrheit, eine
wissentschaftliche Untersuchung. Paderborn. 1884; Russian translation:
Dr. K.
Ekker. Yevreyskoe zertsalo v svete istiny. Nauchnoe issledovanie.
Moskva,
1906).

This legal case was brought to court by Jews who were upset because one
of
their tribesmen, Justus Brieman, converted to Christianity and
published the
anti-human laws of the Shulkhan Arukh and of the Talmud. The law court
ruled that
the man who published the work was in the right, after finding that his
translation corresponded to the original text. Dr. Ekker only corrected
small
inaccuracies. We will cite below characteristic extracts from the text
as corrected
by him, together with the references to specific Jewish sources
(drawing
confidence from both the qualifications of the German Hebrew scholar
and the
authority of the German law court).

- “His [the non-Jew’s] seed is considered like the seed of
cattle” (Tosefta
– an addition to the Talmud. Ketubot, 3 b). “For [dead] servants
and maids . .
. words of comfort should not be said to their relatives, but it is
necessary
to say to him [the Jewish master]: ‘may God compensate you for your
loss’,
just as one says to a man whose bull or donkey has died.” (Iore
de’a 377-1).

- “It is forbidden to save them [non-Jews, akums] when they are close
to
death. For example, when you see that one of them has fallen into the
sea, do not
rescue him, even if he wants to pay. . . . It is permitted to test
medicine on
an akum to see whether or not it is effective.” (Iore de’a 158-1).

- “The money of akums is essentially like goods with no owner, and
the one
who arrives first may take possession of them.” “With respect to an
akum there
is no fraud.” (Khoshen ha-mishpat 156-5, Khaga; 227-26; 348-2,
Khaga).

- “When a Jew has robbed an akum and they force him [the Jew] to take
an
oath., then he must in his heart proclaim his oath invalid, because he
has been
forced to take it.” (Iore de’a 329-1, Khaga). Note: this again
concerns the
behavior of Jews during investigations and trials!

- “When it has been established about someone that he has betrayed a
Jew or
his money three times to an akum, then it is necessary to seek out ways
and
means to squeeze him out of the world.” “As to expenditures needed
for squeezing
a traitor from the world, all the inhabitants of a locality are obliged
to
contribute.” (Khoshen ha-mishpat 388-15 and -16).

- “It is permitted to kill a traitor in any place, even in our time.
It is
permissible to kill him early, before he manages to make a denunciation
[powe
rful enough to cause ‘bodily or monetary loss, no matter how
small’] . . . and
everyone who is the first to kill acquires merit.” (Khoshen
ha-mishpat 388-10).

- “The Jew-free-thinker, i.e., he who carries out the divine service
of akums
. . . to kill all such people is a good deed. When there is authority
to kill
them publicly by the sword, then let this be carried out; but if there
is
not, then they must be entangled in every way possible in order to
cause to them
death. For example, when you see that one of them has fallen into a
well and
in the well there is a ladder, then hurry to take out it, saying: ‘I
have a
major concern; I need to get my son down from the roof, and I will
bring it right
back to you,’ or something like that.” (Khoshen ha-mishpat 425-5).

Provocateurs and Haters of Humanity

It should be noted that even the last prescriptions for killing – are
to this
day is not only theory, but also practice. Thus, the former chairman of
Kharkov Jewish community E. Khodos published proofs ("An Axe above
Orthodoxy, or
who killed my father.” Kharkov, 1999) showing that members of the
Jewish Chabad
movement carried out the 1990 murder of priest-Jew Father Aleksandr
Men’ (who
“carried out the divine service of the Akums” and dreamed about the
creation
of a “Jewish Orthodox Church,” something that is considered a
criminal offense
according to the laws of the state of Israel). But the authorities in
the
Russian Federation have not been interested in such evidence. Criminals
are
supposed to be sought only among “Russian anti-Semites”.

We would like to emphasize that the majority of anti-Jewish actions
throughout the world are constantly arranged by Jews themselves with
the purpose of
provoking punitive measures against patriots. The best-known case in
Russia is
that of Arkady Norinsky, who in 1988 sent out anti-Semitic leaflets in
the name
of the organization “Pamyat’” in order to impel authorities to
suppress it.
In this he had the help of his fellow tribesman, the editor in chief of
the
journal Znamya, G. Baklanov, who published the leaflet in a print run
of several
millions. It was only after this that the provocation was uncovered.
(“Znamya” No. 10, 1988; “Pravda”, 19 November1988;
“Komsomol’skaya Pravda”, 24
November1988; “Ogonyok” No. 9, 1989).

From recent cases it is possible to mention a strange series of reports
of
vandalism that took place in 1998 and 1999. On the night of 13 May
1998, an
explosion occurred at a synagogue in the Mar’inaya grove in Moscow
damaging a
wall. During the same day “a burning canister of gasoline” was
placed not far
from the synagogue in Otradny. In Irkutsk “a Jewish cemetery was
desecrated” –
of course the uproar in the international media was loud and all of
them put
the blame, without any evidence, on some sort of Russian Nazis
(“Nezavisimaya
Gazeta,” 15 May 1998).

But when shortly after that, in 1999, a synagogue in Birobidzhan was
destroyed, it was established in court that the Jews themselves hired a
man to do
this. (“Radonezh”, 1999, No. 15-16), but the democratic mass media
were silent
about this.
On the basis of the rules and practices of Jewish behavior that have
been
cited above, it is not difficult to understand why a constant companion
of Jews
among all peoples has been notorious “anti-Semitism”, i.e., the
non-acceptance
of Judaic morality. For this very reason Jews did not have an equality
of
rights in the Christian states and attained it only as a result of
anti-monarchist bourgeois revolutions.

Thus in the Russian Empire, the Jews, after unsuccessful attempts by
the
Tsarist government to give them the status “of everybody else,”
lost their
equality in the 19th Century, not because they were Jewish by blood –
since the
empire was multinational; nor because they were not Christian – since
the Muslims
and Buddhists and others were not Christians either; but because the
Jewish
religion is anti-Christian and misanthropic to the point of ritual
murder. Many
examples of this ritual extremism were documented in courts. (For
example, see
the study of the well-known scholar V. I. Dal’, Rozyskanie o ubinenii
yevreyami khristianskikh mladentsev i upotreblenii krovi ikh
[“Criminal investigation
into the murder by Jews of Christian infants and the use of their
blood.”]
St. Petersburg, 1884).

To all this it is possible also to add the words of the Prayer of
Shefokh, in
which the Jews on the eve of their Passover issue a call their
“god” “to
exterminate from the universe” all other peoples.

Jewish Agressiveness as a Form of Satanism

The spiritual reason for this hatred of humanity is explained in the
Gospels
in the words of Christ regarding the Jewish spiritual leaders who
rejected the
Son of the God: “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of
your
father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning . . .” (John
8:19-44).

This elucidation of Judaic aggressiveness as a form of Satanism is
generally
accepted in Orthodoxy. Well-known philosopher-intellectuals who cannot
be
suspected of anti-Semitism expressed it. For example, A.F. Losev (in
“Istochnik”
Moscow, 1996, No. 4. pp. 117-122), Father Pavel Florensky (in the book
“Sakharna”, by V. V. Rozanov. Moscow. Izdatel’stvo
“Respublika”, 1998, p. 360), and
Father Sergiy Bulgakov: “the Jews who were rejecting Christ became
the
“laboratory for all sorts of spiritual diseases, poisoning the world
and
particularly Christian humanity.” (“Vestnik RKhD”, Paris, 1973
No. 108-110. p. 72).
Even the Judeo-Christian Father Aleksandr Men’, who was struggling
against
“anti-Semitism”, asserted that the Jew who rejects Christianity,
“betrays himself
and easily falls under the power of dark forces.” (the journal
“Yevrei v
SSSR”, 1975, No. 11).
This, unfortunately is what happened with the larger part of the Jewish
people (in contrast to its smaller part, which accepted Christianity).
But they do
not want to recognize this and believe that that statement of the truth
by
Christ and after him by Orthodox Christians is “insulting” to the
Jews. Jewish
plaintiffs frequently direct their charge of “anti-Semitism”
against this
essential part of Orthodox doctrine itself, demanding that it actually
be banned
(as in the case with the textbook “Osnov pravoslavnoy kul’tury”
[“Bases of
Orthodox Culture”]).

But we cannot agree with banning the Orthodox doctrine about the idea
of
history as the struggle of the forces of good (on the side of the
Church) against
the forces of evil (the side opposed to religion, that prepares for the
reign
of the antichrist).
Following the precepts of the Orthodox Fathers of the Church, we also
cannot
follow the false understanding that is spreading according to which
tolerance
is humbleness before the sin, evil, heresies, and in this case
Satanism. The
Christian must precisely from the respect for the image of God placed
in each
person, and for the sake of saving his soul, frankly indicate to Jews
their
dangerous deviation from the truth into Satanism. It is in this that,
from a
Christian point of view, the manifestation of authentic love for people
consists.
“Tolerant” indulgence of heresies and Satanism only contributes to
their
spiritual loss – and under their strong pressure – to that of their
many victims.

One should immediately answer also the possible objection that the
Russian
patriots, who level charges at the Jews, do not always distinguish
between
religious and non-religious Jews, particularly since the majority of
Jews do not
consider themselves believers in Judaism and do not study the
“Shulkhan Arukh.”
But many generations of the self-contained life of Jews among other
peoples
(in this context there developed the idea of the Jewish kahal as a
“state
within a state” - see the books by Jewish authors: “Antisemitizm v
drevnem mire”
[“Antisemitism in the ancient world”] by S. Lur’e and the
“Kniga Kagala”
[“The Book of the Kahal”] by Yakov Brafman) led to the situation
where the
morality of the “Shulkhan Arukh” became a part of Jewish national
self-consciousness
even in its secular form. This conclusion was drawn by the well-known
Jewish
writer and sociologist Hannah Arendt:

“Precisely in the process of secularization was borne completely real
Jewish
chauvinism. . . . The idea of the chosenness of the Jews became . . .
the idea
that Jews supposedly were the salt of the earth. From now on, the old
religious concept of chosenness was no longer the essence of Judaism;
it became
instead the essence of Jewishness.”

(“Antisemitism”//”Sintaksis”Paris, No. 26, 1989) [English
readers see
Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism, New York: Schocken, 2004. p.
99.]

This “real Jewish chauvinism” and the unceremonious spirit of the
“Shulkhan
Arukh” were clearly visible in the course of the destruction the USSR
and the
post-communistic reforms in our country and were expressed in the
illegal
appropriation of state property as “goods with no owner,” and also
in the
composition of the new ruling stratum. “The government is full of
Jews,”
acknowledged the Rabbi Adolf Shayevich ("NH- Figury i litsa”, 1998,
No. 16.). Thus, their
corresponding influence on the life of the country proved to be
completely
disproportionate to their numbers (0,16 % according to the data of last
census)
to the detriment of the interests of all the other peoples of the
country and
especially the Russian people who formed the country.

The Jewish Revolution

The well-known Jewish publicist L. Radzikhovsky calls this a
‘democratic-capitalist revolution’ and says: “The Jewish and
Jewish-oriented intelligentsia,
which constitutes in Russia one of the chief carriers of
western-liberal
ideology, became the ideologist of this revolution.’ Therefore
‘Jews have a larger
specific weight in Russian politics and business than in the politics
and
business of any other Christian country.” This he calls the “good
luck of the
Jews” which was also the title of his article (“Yevreyskoe
schast’e” in “Novoe
Russkoe Slovo,” 17 January 1996.)”

The Jewish oligarchs themselves frankly described on Israeli television
(2nd
program, 3 October 1996) the sources of their “good luck” in the
revolution
that they perfected (the italics are ours):

“The degree of corruption in Russia completely corresponds to the
degree of
transformations in Russia. I do not think that in the hands of the
officials of
Israel . . . there is the possibility to redistribute wealth worth
tens,
hundreds of millions and billions . . . this was – no one’s, this
was – the
state’s, this was everyone’s! So here, an official had the
capability to determine
by drawing up a list: this belongs to you, or to someone else. . . . A
good
fight, which led to the result that we have today.” (Boris
Berezovsky).

“Incomes like this and profits like this, which could be earned in
Russia,
could not be earned anywhere else. . . . A big share of capital there,
50
percent, belongs to Jewish business.” (Vitaly Malkin, now a member of
the presidium
of Russian Jewish Congress).

Vladimir Gusinsky, the first chairman of Russian Jewish Congress, in
that
broadcast said that one of the reasons for Jewish luck is their
“ferocity.” “It
is not so much the rules; it is more the rule of force, it is more the
rule of
aggression.”
“For the first time in thousands years, since the moment the Jews
settled in
Russia, we have obtained real authority in this country,” states
another
Jewish writer, E. Topol’, in an “Open letter to Berezovsky,
Gusinsky, Smolensky,
Khodorkovsky and the rest of the oligarchs” (“Otkrytoe pis’mo
Berezovskomu,
Gusinskomu, Smolenskomu, Khodorkovskomu i ostal’nym oligarkham,” in
“Argumenty
i Fakty”, 1998, No 38). In this connection, Topol’ and other
sensitive Jews
(for example, Yu. Nudel'man in "Sovyetskaya Rossiya", 20 June 2002)
emphasize
that the destructive and self-interested policy of Jewish oligarchs,
which
degrades the Russian people, provokes the hostility of the Russian
people to the
Jews. This obvious fact was noted even by the ambassador of the Kingdom
of
Belgium to the Russian Federation, André Mernier, in his final report
on his work,
sent out to all foreign embassies and to his colleagues in the
diplomatic
corps in September 2004, before his departure from Moscow.

We request that the Procurator General’s office regard this opinion
of
Topol’ and Nudel’man as an acknowledgement that it is the accusing
(Jewish) side
that is responsible for the contemporary aggravation of the
Russo-Jewish
conflict.
This is especially true, given the fact that in order to keep their
authority
and their illegally seized “un-owned” state property, this ruling
stratum
conducts a policy designed to bring about the decay of the people’s
morals and
the removal of spiritual values, attempting to turn the people into an
animal
mass without faith and tradition – the more easily to govern them and
the more
easily to suppress their resistance.

In particular, it was precisely the Jews who put up furious resistance
to
teaching “Osnov pravoslavnoy kyl’tury” [“The Bases of Orthodox
Culture”] in the
schools, and it is precisely on the initiative of Jews that we, the
Russian
people who formed the country, are forbidden to indicate our
nationality in our
passports. The Chef Rabbi of the Russian Federation, Adolf Shayevich,
in an
interview with the “Los Angeles Times” (1 October 1997) confirmed
that
precisely the Jews insisted on the eliminating the entry for
“nationality” [in
passports], and he explained the reason for this by citing the fact
that “Jews have
taken high posts in the administration.” That is, even they
themselves
realize what kind of idea non-Jews have formed about their nationality,
and
therefore they attempt to hide their nationality. This also says a lot.

Among the other numerous examples of the removal of spiritual values we
cannot but draw your attention, Mr. Procurator General, to the policy
of the
Minister of Culture Mikhail Shvydkoy (who now leads a government agency
for the
matters of culture) and its television program “Kul’turnaya
revolyutsiya”
[“Cultural Revolution”], in which Russian patriotism and Orthodox
traditions
regularly are degraded. It propagandizes obscenity and the idea that
sex is the
engine of culture” (7 March 2002). All protests of the Russian
community against the
scandalous and, in essence, provocative activity of this “chief man
of
culture in the country” have proven futile.

Moreover Shvydkoy and his associates have the central channels of
Russian
television at their disposal for their attacks, while the Orthodox
patriot
defendants have the tiny print runs [of publications], for which they
are
investigated and brought to trial. This inequality of opportunity can
also lead them
involuntarily to the excessive emotionalism, especially when they the
rebuff the
blasphemous and insolent anti-Russian actions of persons of Jewish
origin.

But this emotionalism of defendants driven into a corner should not be
mixed
up with aggressive, offensive emotionalism. The Orthodox person is not
allowed
to be aggressive, but he is called on to protect its people and their
sacred
things. The example of this was given by Christ Himself, who by the
whip was
banished from the temple by the merchants who had profaned it.

What is permissible to whom?

In comparison with the statements of the accused Russian patriots, much
more
aggressive statements by Jews regarding non-Jews are printed in Jewish
newspapers published in the Russian Federation. For example, in the
organ of the
Russian Jewish Congress, ‘Yevreyskie novosti’ (2002, No. 16, page
9) the Knesset
deputy A. Lieberman called for the forcible expulsion of the
Palestinians from
Israel. Accordingly the Palestinians – in violation of UN Security
Council
resolutions! – are not only thrown out of their homeland (4 million
refugees),
but their activists are murdered along with their families. Thus does
the
Shulkhan Arukh show up in the state policy of Israel.

And the Jews of the Russian Federation support it. The Russian Jewish
Congress states that one of its aims is “to conduct actions of
solidarity with the
people of Israel, carrying out political lobbying for the interests of
Israel”
(Yevreyskie novosti, 2002 No. 15, p. 5). The same goal is also pursued
by the
state Institute for the Study of Israel and the Near East, the leader
of which,
Yevgeny Satanovsky, simultaneously headed the Russian Jewish Congress.

Jewish communities all over the world carry out similar “political
lobbying”
for the interests of international Jewry to the detriment of the
interests of
the countries in which they live, and particularly in the USA. That
state has
become an instrument for the attainment of the global aims of Jewry.
And they
try to mask the racism of their Shulkhan Arukh by slapping the charge
of
anti-Semitism (i.e., allegedly racial hatred) on all those who do not
agree with
their morality, their activities, their wars.
But such a reversal of concepts is a crude forgery, as should be clear
to any
impartial judge. One can say that the whole democratic world today has
fallen
under the financial and political control of international Jewry, of
which
eminent bankers (Jacques Attali and others) are openly proud. And we do
not see
it as desirable that our Russia, against whose revival a permanent
preventive
war without rules is being conducted, should wind up among such unfree
countries.

Therefore we, both in order to protect our fatherland and for personal
self-defense, are forced to turn to you, Mr. Procurator General, with
the imperative
request that within the shortest period you verify the scandalous facts
presented above and, if they are confirmed, on the basis of the
corresponding
articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation’s Law “on
opposing
extremist activity” (2002) and article 13 of the Constitution of the
Russian
Federation (“the creation and activity of public associations, the
aim of which is
directed towards kindling social, racial, national, and religious
discord are
prohibited”) to officially institute proceedings for the prohibition
in our
country of all religious and national Jewish associations as extremist.
We also
request that persons responsible for assigning to these associations
state and
municipal property, privileges, and state financing, be called to
account
regardless of the posts they occupy.

Russian State Television Denounces World Jewry

Moscow, Russia — A February 3rd broadcast on Russian state-owned NTV by Communist legislator Albert Makashov has the Jewish hate-community calling for legal action and denouncing "rising anti-Semitism".
Makashov, in a debate with Alexei Leonov, a Soviet cosmonaut, said outright that Jewish oligarchs had robbed Russia of its wealth, were exerting "total control" over the Russian economy, and needed to be driven out of the country. In response, the formal head of Russia's organized Jewish community called for Makashov to be arrested.

The fact that the Jewish "leader" responded by demanding the arrest of someone for disagreeing with him politically did not strike world Jewry as "anti-democratic".

While the judges of the debate show, hosted by Jew Vladimir Solovyev, voted in favor of Leonid's argument, 53% of the call-in voters to the show declared Makashov the winner, and many of the callers who came on air also made anti- Jewish comments, and called for the extermination of Russia's Jews.

Internationally, Jewish groups used the show to call on countries like the US, Britain and Germany to give them more money, nominally for "saving Russia's Jews".

Russian Jewish leaders urged that Jews in Russia think of emigrating to Jew- friendly contries like the states. Tankred Golenpolsky, a Jewish journalist in Russia, made the public statement, “This show is a signal to the Jews, including those who had never thought about leaving their native country. It's time to take our kids out of here."

Jews, most of them from America, Britain and Germany, came to Russia in 1917 to launch the Bolshevik revolution. Jews like Trotsky, Zinoviev, and Lenin (1/4 Jewish) dominated Soviet Russia until the rise of Stalin, and continued to man its bureaucracy until the late days of the Soviet Union. When the US pawn Boris Yeltsin came to power, Jews were restored to prominence through the looting of Russia's main industries. Under Putin, Jewish power has been breaking, with the arrests of many prominent Jewish robber-barons, known in Russia as the "oligarchs".

Recently, a group of 20 Russian lawmakers signed a letter to Putin calling for a ban on all Jewish organizations, claiming that the Jews are "extremist" and that they are involved in "financing terrorism".

Ukraine - Yushchenko Reveals Why Israel Backed Him

Zionists Already Put In Charge Of Media And Defense. New Prime Minister
Is Also
A Zionist

BBC News 2-5-5

http://www.rense.com/general62/iuk.htm

The new President of Ukraine, Viktor Yushchenko, has appointed
multi-millionaire
"dual citizen" Yevgeny Chervonenko communications minister. The
45-year-old
holds an Israeli passport and is vice president of the All-Ukraine
Jewish
Congress. As communications minister he will exercise complete control
over the
development of Ukraine's media. His department will issue all
operational and
frequency licenses for radio, television, Internet and satellite
communications.

After privatization, Chervonenko gained control of a variety of
businesses,
including two large bottling plants, supermarket chains and a
pharmaceutical
firm. In 2004, in an interview with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, he
complained
of "anti-Semites" in the opposition coalition, noting that he accosted
one of
them, Vassily Chervoni, in a washroom in the Parliament building.
Chervonenko
said, "I put his head in the sink and told him, 'One more bad word
about Israel
and I'll really mess you up.' " (Chervonenko was head of candidate
Yushchenko's
security detail, and bragged to the AP that he personally tasted all of
Yushchenko's food when asked about the alleged poisoning. He blamed the
poisoning on the "anti-Semitic" opposition who fed his man during a
private
government meeting to which he did not have access.)

Media mogul Pyotr Poroshenko, also a Jew, has been appointed secretary
of
National Security and Defense, despite having no experience whatsoever.
Not even
Ukraine's heavily Jewish Communist Party can believe it. After hearing
of
Poroshenko's appointment, they issued this statement: "When national
security
and the activities of law-enforcement are entrusted to a businessman
whose
actions have often contradicted the law, and who has been caught
falsifying
State budgets, one can hardly believe in pre-election promises that all
the
criminals would be jailed." Oligarch Poroshenko owns Channel 5, the
television
channel that during the "Orange Revolution" turned from a relatively
objective
news source into a fountain of opposition propaganda.

Billionaire Jew Julia Timoshenko, 44, has been appointed Prime
Minister, the
nation's second most powerful position, despite an international arrest
warrant.
Timoshenko is under criminal indictment in Russia for fraud and bribing
government officials. In 1996-97 Timoshenko sucked billions from the
Ukrainian
economy through the re-sale of gas under the protection of her
robber-baron
patron, former prime minister Pavel Lazarenko. (Pavel Lazarenko is
serving a
prison sentence in California after being convicted of extortion, money
laundering, conspiracy, fraud and the transportation of stolen
property.
Lazarenko was also convicted of money laundering in Switzerland and is
wanted
for murder in Ukraine. His American criminal defense lawyer is
well-known
television legal commentator Daniel Horowitz. During his San Francisco
trial,
Horowitz introduced secret recordings of former Ukrainian President
Leonid
Kuchma that include anti-Semitic cursing and rants against Lazarenko.
The idea
was to convince the jury that Lazarenko was the victim of an
anti-Semitic
political vendetta by Kuchma. It didn't work.)

The new prime minister's native language is Russian, not Ukrainian.
Timoshenko
admits she only learned the Ukrainian language in 1999. She has
absolutely
refused to provide a biography, and even her maiden name is a mystery.
However,
local Jews have repeatedly boasted of her Jewish ancestry.

White House Invites Wanted Jewish Oligarchs for Breakfast with Bush
http://www.moscowtimes.ru/stories/2005/02/04/043.html

4th February 2005

TWO wanted Jewish oligarchs will enjoy "prayer breakfast" with Bush.
Most
likely, they will pray that they never end up in the hands of the
Russians

Two of Russia's most wanted fugitives were invited to Washington for a
'prayer
breakfast' with President George Bush in defiance of international
arrest
warrants. The two Jewish oligarchs were promised by US officials that
they would
not be extradited to Russia. After being assured that they would not
face
Russian justice, Mikhail Brudon and Vladimir Dubov flew in from Israel
on
Wednesday.

Over a year ago, the two fled to Israel. They were wanted by Russian
prosecutors
for charges similar to those against Yukos CEO Mikhail Khodorkovsy, who
was sent
to prison in October 2003. Brudon and Dubov are both major shareholders
in the
company. Both oligarchs have been granted citizenship by Israel. They
were
invited to Washington by Republican Representative Tom Lantos, who is a
major
Russophobe in the capital.

Upset that Khodorkovsky couldn't make the breakfast due to 'prior
arrangements,'
Lantos decided that two lesser Jewish oligarchs could take the place of
Russia's
richest Jewish oligarch. Lenoid Nevzlin, another wanted Yukos
shareholder, was
also invited. Nevzlin, Brudno, and Dubov fled Russia after seeing the
writing on
the wall with Khodorkovsky's arrest.

Dubov and Brudno only agreed to bless President Bush with their
presence after
being assured that the US government would ignore the Interpol warrant
for their
arrests. When asked what he is going to do next, Brudno said that he
will return
'home' to Israel.

Other criminals wanted by Russia the 'West' refuses to hand over are
Vladimir
Gusinsky, Boris Berezovsky, and Chechen terrorist spokesman Akhmed
Zakyaev. All
three have been granted amnesty in order to protect them from Russian
justice.

(3) Ex-Congressman Paul Findley with "Great Balls of Fire"

Date: Mon, 7 Feb 2005 19:18:06 EST From:

They Dare To Speak Out

Author: Paul Findley ©1985 Publisher: Lawrence Hill & Co. ISBN No.
0-88208-179-9

Book excerpts from a courageous United States Congressman, Paul
Findley, who
served from 1960-1982:

Page 1 -- Early Naivete

I had already begun to doubt the wisdom of United States policy in the
Middle
East when I first joined the subcommittee. For the most part, I kept
these
doubts private, but not because I feared the political consequences. In
fact I
naively assumed I could question our policy anywhere without getting
into
trouble. I did not realize how deeply the roots of Israeli interests
had
penetrated U.S. institutions.

Page 17 -- Personal Friend Could Not Ignore the Lobby

No event, before or since, disclosed to me so forcefully the hidden
leverage of
the Israeli lobby on the U.S. political scene. This great, kind,
generous Jewish
elder statesman, a personal friend for twenty years, could not ignore
the lobby
and say a public good word for my candidacy. I report this episode
because, when
a great man like Arthur Burns feels he must keep his views private,
lesser men
and women who would speak out face an enormous challenge.

Page 19 -- Bob Hope Backs Out

The "panic" even spread to Hollywood. Bob Hope, who never wavered under
enemy
fire on war fronts in World War II and Korea and withstood heavy
criticism for
his support of President Nixon's Vietnam policies, encountered a new
and more
devastating line of fire when he agreed to appear at a fund-raising
event for me
in Springfield. ...

... Coast-to-coast pressure quickly brought a change. Don Norton
recalls an
urgent telephone message he received from Hope's manager:

Grant told me that Hope was getting tremendous pressure from Jews and
non-Jews
all over the country. He said it's gone to the point where Hope's
lawyer of 35
years, who is Jewish, has threatened to quit. The pressure was beyond
belief,
like nothing they had ever experienced before, and Bob Hope just
couldn't come.

Page 20 -- Lobby Pressures Gerald Ford

Lobby pressure also intruded when former President Gerald R. Ford
agreed to
appear in my behalf, this time in Alton, Illinois.

The first sign of trouble was a call From Palm Springs in which Ford's
secretary
reported that the former president had to cancel his date because his
staff had
mistakenly booked him to speak at a meeting of the Michigan Bar
Association the
same day. There was no other time that Ford could help me, the caller
said,
before election day. To determine if some accommodation was possible,
my
assistant, Bob Wichser, called the Michigan Bar Association, only to
learn there
was no conflict - no event was scheduled.

Page 21 -- Emotion Drives Israel's American Supporters

When election time came around again two years later, I was unopposed
in the
primary, but a strong Democratic opponent, Richard Durbin, emerged in
the
general election. More experienced and popular, he quickly picked up
the
resources Robinson had amassed, including Robinson's list of nationwide
contributors. The Associated Press reported that: "Israel's American
supporters
again are pouring money into an emotional drive to unseat Central
Illinois
Representative Paul Findley.

Page 22 -- Puzzlement At Attitude of Pro-Israel Activists

After my twenty-two years in Congress, losing was, of course, a
disappointment.
But my main reaction was wonderment. I was puzzled by the behavior of
the
Pro-Israel activists. Why did they go to such trouble to eliminate me
from
Congress? Why did people from all over the country who did not know me
personally and very likely knew little of my record dig so deeply in
their own
pockets - many of them contributing $1,000 to my opponents? What
sustained this
commitment for a four-year period?

Page 23 -- Make an Example

... Surely they realized that I posed no serious threat. Could Israel's
supporters not tolerate even one lonely voice of dissent?

Or was the lobby's purpose to make an example of me in the Elizabethan
manner?
(According to legend, Queen Elizabeth occasionally hanged an admiral,
just as an
example to the others.) Was I chosen for a trip to the political
gallows to
discourage other Congressmen from speaking out?

Page 25 -- AIPAC the Preeminent Power in Washington Lobbying

Washington is a city of acronyms, and today one of the best-known in
Congress is
AIPAC. The mere mention of it brings a sober, if not furtive look, to
the face
of anyone on Capitol Hill who deals with Middle East policy. AIPAC -
the
American Israel Public Affairs Committee - is now the preeminent power
in
Washington lobbying.

Pages 25, 26 -- AIPAC Means Power

Almost without exception, House and Senate members do its bidding,
because most
of them consider AIPAC to be the direct Capitol Hill representative of
a
political force that can make or break their chances at election time.

Whether based on fact or fancy, the perception is what counts: AIPAC
mean power
- raw, intimidating power. Its promotional literature regularly cites a
tribute
published in the New York Times: "The most powerful, best-run and
effective
foreign policy interest group in Washington." A former Congressman,
Paul N.
"Pete" McCloskey puts it more directly: Congress is "terrorized" by
AIPAC. Other
Congressmen have not been so candid on the public record, but many
House and
Senate members privately agree.

Page 26, 27 -- Lobby Group 'Extension of Israeli Government'

In practice, the lobby groups function as an informal extension of the
Israeli
government. This was illustrated when AIPAC helped draft the official
statement
defending Israel's 1981 bombing of the Iraqi nuclear reactor, then
issued it the
same hour as Israel's embassy.

No major Jewish organization ever publicly takes issue with positions
and
policies adopted by Israel. Thomas A. Dine, executive director of
AIPAC, spoke
warmly of President Reagan's peace plan when it was announced in
September 1982,
but as soon as Israel rejected the plan, Dine fell silent.

Page 27 -- Even the President Turns to AIPAC

Over the years the pro-Israel lobby has thoroughly penetrated this
nation's
governmental system, and the organization that has made the deepest
impact is
AIPAC, to whom even the president of the United States turns when he
has a
vexing political problem related to the Arab-Israeli dispute.

Page 35 -- AIPAC Publishes 'Enemies List'

AIPAC's outreach program is buttressed by a steady stream of
publications. In
addition to "Action Alerts" and the weekly Near East Report, it issues
position
papers and monographs designed to answer, or often discredit, critics,
and
advance Israel's objectives.

The most controversial publication of all is an "enemies list" issued
as a
"first edition" in the spring of 1983. A handsomely printed 154-page
paperback
entitled The Campaign to Discredit Israel, it provides a "directory of
the
actors": 21 organizations and 39 individuals AIPAC identified as
inimical to
Israeli interests.

Included are such distinguished public servants as former
Undersecretary of
State George W. Ball, retired ambassadors Talcott Seelye, Andrew
Kilgore, John
C. West and James Atkins, and former Senator James Abourezk. There are
also five
Jewish dissenters and several scholars on the list.

Seemingly unaware of the AIPAC project, the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai
B'rith almost simultaneously issued its own "enemies list": Pro-Arab
Propaganda
in America: Vehicles and Voices. It too is identified as a "first
edition," and
lists 31 organizations and 34 individuals. These books are nothing more
than
blacklists, reminiscent of the worst tactics of the McCarthy era.

A similar "enemies list" is employed in AIPAC's extensive program at
colleges
and universities.

Page 36 -- Effectiveness of AIPAC

Paul Weyrich, who worked as a Senate aide before becoming a political
analyst,
details the effectiveness of AIPAC:

It's a remarkable system they have. If you vote with them, or make a
public
statement they like, they get the word out fast through their own
publications
and through editors around the country who are sympathetic to their
cause.

Of course it works in reverse as well. if you say something they don't
like, you
can be denounced or censured through the same network. That kind of
pressure is
bound to affect Senators' thinking, especially if they are wavering or
need
support.

Page 37 -- 'Our Access is Amazing'

... Encountered in a Capitol corridor one day, an AIPAC lobbyist said,
"Tomorrow
I will try to see five members of the House. I called this morning and
confirmed
every appointment, and I have no doubt I will get in promptly." Two
days later,
even he seemed somewhat awed by AIPAC's clout. He reported, "I made all
five. I
went right in to see each of them. There was no waiting. Our access is
amazing."

Page 43 -- NatPAC

The largest pro-Israel PAC is the national Political Action Committee
(NatPAC),
headquartered in New York with Marvin Josephson, head of a theatrical
and

Page 49 AIPAC Relentless

An Ohio Congressman speaks of AIPAC with both awe and concern:

AIPAC is the most influential lobby on Capitol Hill. They are
relentless. They
know what they're doing. They have the people for financial resources.
They've
got a lot going for them. Their basic underlying cause is one that most
Americans sympathize with.

But what distresses me is the inability of American policy-makers,
because of
the influence of AIPAC, to distinguish between our national interest
and
Israel's national interest. When these converge - wonderful! But they
don't
always converge.

Page 54 -- B'nai B'rith Published Report 'A Complete Fabrication'

An article in the B'nai B'rith Messenger charged that McCloskey had
proposed
that all rabbis be required to register as foreign agents, declaring
that he had
made the proposal in a meeting with the editors of the Los Angeles
Times. The
author assured his readers that the tidbit came from a "very reliable
source,"
and the charge was published nationally. The charge was a complete
fabrication,
and the Times editor Tony Day was quick to back up McCloskey's denial.

The Messenger published a retraction a month later, but the accusation
lingered
on. Even the Washington office of the Israeli lobby did not get the
retraction
message. In an interview about McCloskey two years later, Douglas
Bloomfield,
legislative director for AIPAC, apparently unaware of the retraction,
repeated
the accusation as fact.

A tracking system initiated by the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith
assured that McCloskey would have no peace, even as a private citizen.
the group
distributed a memorandum containing details of his actions and speeches
to its
chapters around the country. According to the memo, it was designed to
"assist"
local ADL groups with "counteraction guidance" whenever McCloskey
appeared in
public.

Page 70, 71 Congressmen's Reaction to Israeli Pressure Groups

A veteran Ohio Congressman observes:

When [Stephen] Solarz and others press for more money for Israel,
nobody wants
to say "No." You don't need many examples of intimidation for
politicians to
realize what the potential is. The Jewish lobby is terrific. Anything
it wants,
it gets. Jews are educated, often have a lot of money, and vote on the
basis of
a single issue - Israel. They are unique in that respect. For example,
anti-abortion supporters are numerous but not that well educated, and
don't have
that much money. The Jewish lobbyists have it all, and they are
political
activists on top of it.

This Congressman divides his colleagues into four groups:

For the first group, it's rah, rah, give Israel anything it wants. The
second
group includes those with some misgivings, but they don't dare step out
of line;
they don't say anything. In the third group are Congressmen who have
deep
misgivings but who won't do more than try quietly to slow down the aid
to
Israel. Lee Hamilton is an example. The fourth groups consists of those
who
openly question U.S. policy in the Middle East and challenge what
Israel is
doing. Since Findley and McCloskey left, this group really doesn't
exist
anymore.

He puts himself in the third group: "I may vote against the bill
authorizing
foreign aid this year for the first time. If I do, I will not state my
reason."
Solarz has never wavered in his commitment to Israel.

Page 77 -- Many Jews Mistake Criticism of Israel for Anti-Semitism

"What is tragic is that so many Jewish people misconstrue criticism of
Israel as
anti-Jewish or anti-Semitic." He speaks admiringly of the open
criticism of
Israeli policy that often occurs within Israel itself: "It is easier to
criticize Israel in the Knesset [the Israeli parliament] than it is in
the U.S.
Congress, here in this land of free speech."

Pages 78, 79 -- AIPAC Caught Napping -- Fail To Detect Rebellion in
Congress

For once, both the House Democratic leadership and AIPAC were caught
napping.
Usually in complete control of all legislative activities which relate
to
Israel, AIPAC failed to detect the brewing rebellion. Concern over the
budget
deficit and controversial provisions in the bill for Central America
led these
freshman democrats to oppose their own leadership. unable to offer
amendments,
they quietly agreed among themselves to oppose the whole package.

When the roll was called the big electric board over the Speaker's desk
showed
defeat - the resolution was rejected, 206 to 203. Twenty-four
first-term
Democrats had deserted the leadership and voted no. Voting no did not
mean they
opposed Israeli aid. Some of them, concerned over the federal deficit,
viewed it
as a demand to the leadership to schedule a bill raising taxes. For
others, it
was simply a protest. But for Israel it was serious.

"The Jewish community went crazy," a Capitol Hill veteran recalls.
AIPAC's
professionals went to work. Placing calls from their offices just four
blocks
away, they activated key people in the districts of a selected list of
the
errant freshmen. They arranged for "quality calls" to individuals who
had played
a major role in the recent Congressional election. Each was to place an
urgent
call to his or her Congressman, insist on getting through personally
and use
this message:

Approval of the continuing resolution is very important. Without it,
Israel will
suffer. I am not criticizing your vote against it the first time. I am
su re you
had reasons. However, I have learned that the same question will come
up for
vote again, probably tomorrow. I speak for many of your friends and
supporters
in asking that you change your vote when the question comes up again.

... The urgent telephone messages from home carried the day. When the
roll was
called, 14 of the freshmen - a bit sheepishly - changed their votes.

... To give the freshmen an excuse they could use in explaining their
embarrassing shift, the leadership promised to bring up a tax bill.
Everyone
knew it was just a ploy: the tax bill had no chance to become law. But
the
excuse was helpful, and the resolution was approved, 224 to 189. the
flow of aid
to Israel continued without interruption.

Page 95 -- 'Israel Controls the Senate': Fullbright

Appearing on CBS television's "Face the Nation" in 1973, [Senator
William J.]
Fullbright declared that the Senate was "subservient to Israeli
policies which
were inimical to American interests. He said the United States bears "a
very
great share of the responsibility" for the continuation of Middle East
violence.
"It's quite obvious [that] without the all-out support by the United
States in
money and weapons and so on, the Israeli couldn't do what they've been
doing."

Fullbright said the United States failed to pressure Israel for a
negotiated
settlement because

The great majority of the Senate of the United States - somewhere
around 80
percent - are completely in support of Israel, anything Israel wants.
This has
been demonstrated time and time again, and this has made it difficult
for our
government.

The Senator claimed that "Israel controls the Senate," and warned, "We
should be
more concerned about the United States' interests."

Page 101 -- President Ford backs Down Under Pressure

... It was a historic proposal, the first time since Eisenhower that a
United
States president even hinted publicly that he might suspend aid to
Israel.

Israel's response came, not from its own capital, but from the United
States
Senate. Instead of relying on a direct protest to the White House,
Jerusalem
activated its lobby in the United States, which, in turn, signed up as
supporters of Israel's position more than three-fourths of the members
of the
United States Senate.

A more devastating - and intimidating - response could scarcely be
conceived.
The seventy-six signatures effectively told Ford he could not carry out
his
threatened "reappraisal." Israel's loyalists in the Senate - Democrats
and
republicans alike - were sufficient in number to reject any legislative
proposal
hostile to Israel that Ford might make, and perhaps even enact a
pro-Israeli
piece of legislation over a presidential veto.

The letter was a demonstration of impressive clout. Crafted and
circulated by
AIPAC, it had been endorsed overnight by a majority of the Senate
membership.
Several Senators who at first had said "No" quickly changed their
positions.
Senator John Culver admitted candidly, "The pressure was too great. I
caved." So
did President Ford. He backed down and never again challenged the
lobby.

Page 102 -- TV's 'Holocaust' Series 'Simplifies Lobbying'

The Israeli lobby pulled out all the stops. It coordinated a nationwide
public
relations campaign which revived, as never before, memories of the
genocidal
Nazi campaign against European Jews during World War II. In the wake of
the
highly publicized television series, "Holocaust," Capitol Hill was
flooded with
complimentary copies of the novel on which the TV series was based. The
books
were accompanied by a letter from AIPAC saying, "This chilling account
of the
extermination of six million Jews underscores Israel's concerns during
the
current negotiations for security without reliance on outside
guarantees."
Concerning the book distribution, AIPAC's Aaron Rosenbaum told the
Washington
Post: "We think, frankly, that it will affect a few votes here and
there, and
simplify lobbying."

Page 102, 103 -- AIPAC 'Demands 100 Percent' Loyalty

[William] Hathaway was one of the forty-four who stuck with AIPAC, but
this was
not sufficient when election time rolled around. AIPAC wanted a Senator
whose
signature - and vote - it could always count on. Searching for
unswerving
loyalty, the lobby switched to Cohen. Its decision came at the very
time
Hathaway was resisting pressures on the Saudi issue. The staff at the
Democratic
Senatorial Campaign Committee was outraged. One of them declared to a
visitor:
"AIPAC demands 100 percent. If a fine Senator like Hathaway fails to
cooperate
just once, they are ready to trade in his career." A staff member of a
Senate
committee declared: "To please AIPAC, you have to be more pure than
Ivory soap
â*" 99.44 percent purity is not good enough." Lacking the purity AIPAC
demanded,
Hathaway was defeated in 1978.

Page 106 -- Israeli Lobby Exerts 'More Constant Pressure'

[Charles] Mathias cited the Israeli lobby as the most powerful ethnic
pressuer
group, noting that it differs from others in that it focuses on vital
national
security interests and exerts "more constant pressure." Other lobbying
groups
"show up in a crisis and then disappear" and tend to deal with domestic
matters.
Mathias continued:

With the exception of the Eisenhower administration, which virtually
compelled
Israel's withdrawal from the Sinai after the 1956 war, American
presidents, and
to an even greater degree Senators and representatives, have been
subjected to
recurrent pressures from what has come to be known as the Israel lobby.

Page 114 -- JFK 'Insulted' by Jewish Offer

The night before, Kennedy had gone to dinner with a small group of
wealthy and
prominent Jews in New York. An episode of the evening had troubled him
deeply.
Describing it to Bartlett as an "amazing experience," he said one of
those at
the dinner party - he did not identify him by name - told him he knew
his
campaign was in financial difficulty and, speaking for the group,
offered "to
help and help significantly" if Kennedy as president "would allow them
to set
the course of Middle East policy over the next four years." It was an
astounding
proposition.

Kennedy told Bartlett he reacted less as a presidential candidate than
as a
citizen. "He said he felt insulted," Bartlett recalls, "that anybody
would make
that offer, particularly to a man who even had a slim chance to be
president.
..."

Page 119 -- No Protestant Support 'All We Get Is A Battering From the
Jews'

A determined president [Eisenhower] took his case to the American
people in a
televised address in the spring of 1957:

Should a nation which attacks and occupies foreign territory in the
face of the
United Nations disapproval be allowed to impose conditions on its own
withdrawal? If we agreed that armed attack can properly achieve the
purposes of
the assailant, then I fear we will have turned back the clock of
international
order.

Letters and telegrams poured into the White House, but almost all of
the
communications came from Jews, 90 percent supporting Israel's position.
Dulles
complained, "It is impossible to hold the line because we get no
support from
the Protestant elements in the country. All we get is a battering from
the
Jews."

Page 127 -- Power From Willingness to Make Use of Charge of
Anti-Semitism

[George W.] Ball believes the lobby's instrument of greatest power is
its
willingness to make broad use of the charge of anti-Semitism. "They've
got one
great thing going for them. Most people are terribly concerned not to
be accused
of being anti-Semitic, and the lobby so often equates criticism of
Israel with
anti-Semitism. They keep pounding away at that theme, and people are
deterred
from speaking out."

In Ball's view, many Americans feel a "sense of guilt" over the
extermination of
Jews by Nazi Germany. The result of this guilt is that the fear of
being called
anti-Semitic is "much more effective in silencing candidates and public
officials than threats about campaign money or votes."

Page 180-- Making It 'Hot Enough' on Campus

In 1979 AIPAC established its Political Leadership Development Program,
which
trains student activists on how to increase pro-Israeli influence on
campus.
Coordinator Jonathan Kessler recently reported that in just four years
"AIPAC's
program has affiliated over 5,000 students on 350 campuses in all 50
states.

They are systematically monitoring and comprehensively responding to
anti-Israeli groups on campus. They are involved in pro-Israel
legislative
efforts, in electoral campaign politics as well.

Page 239 -- Christian Affinity to Israel

Virtually all Christians approach the Middle East with at least a
subtle
affinity to Israel and an inclination to oppose or mistrust any
suggestion that
questions Israeli policy. The lobby has drawn widely upon this support
in
pressing its national programs. More important, fresh perspectives
which
challenge shibboleths and established prejudices regarding the Middle
East are
often denounced by both the lobby and many of its Christian allies as
politically extremist, anti-Semitic or even anti-Christian.

The religious convictions of many Americans have made them susceptible
to the
appeals of the Israeli lobby, with the result that free speech
concerning the
Middle East and U.S. policy in the region is frequently restricted
before it
begins. The combination of religious tradition and overt lobby activity
tends to
confine legitimate discussion within artificially narrow bounds.

Page 239 -- Conservative Christians Rally to the Cause

Fundamentalist and evangelical groups have been active in this campaign
to
narrow the bounds of free speech. Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson
proselytize
tirelessly for ever-increasing U.S. backing of Israel, citing
scriptural
passages as the basis for their arguments. As the membership of
conservative
Protestant churches and organizations has expanded over the last
decade, this
"Christian Zionist" approach to the Middle East has been espoused from
an
increasing variety of "pulpits": local churches, the broadcast media
and even
the halls of Congress.

Page 240 -- Jerry Falwell Embodies Christian-Zionist Connection

Jerry Falwell, leader of the Moral majority, and a personal friend of
Menachem
Begin and Yitzhak Shamir, has been described by The Economist of London
as "the
silk-voiced ayatollah of Christian revivalism." Acclaimed in a
Conservative
Digest annual poll as the most-admired conservative outside of Congress
(with
President Reagan the runner-up). Falwell embodies the growing
Christian-Zionist
connection. He has declared: "I don't think America could turn its back
on the
people of Israel and survive. God deals with nations in relation to how
those
nations deal with the Jew." He has testified before Congressional
committees in
favor of moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Falwell is
perhaps
the best known of the pro-Israel fundamentalist spokesmen, but he is by
no means
the only one.

Page 241 -- Televangelists Proclaim 'Sanctity of Israel'

Radio and television broadcasts by Jim Bakker, Kenneth Copeland,
Roberts,
Swaggart and others routinely proclaim the sanctity of Israel through
scriptural
quotations, usually from the Old Testament, and then reinforce it with
political
and strategic arguments supplied by the broadcaster.

Page 263 -- Catholic Nun Smeared by Jewish Publication

Sister Miriam Ward, a professor of humanities at Trinity College in
Vermont and
a Catholic nun, has a long record of humanitarian concern for
Palestinian
refugees. By her own description, her role in LaGrange II wasmodest. "I
had
doubts about whether i could justify the expense of going," she
recently
recalled. Sister Miriam moderated a panel discussion and received an
award for
her humanitarian endeavors. Like Mr. Wagner, she knew from experience
the price
of speaking out on Palestinian questions. Her activities had also
attracted hate
mail and personal innuendoes. Still, she was not prepared for the smear
which
resulted from her participation at LaGrange.

Sister Miriam was singled out for a personal attack in The Jewish
Week-American
Examiner, a prominent New York City Jewish publication. The June 21,
1981, issue
gave prominent coverage to a scheme to disrupt Israeli policy on the
occupied
West Bank which Sister Miriam had supposedly advanced at the
conference. The
article claimed that she had urged that "churches finance a project
with staff
in the U.S. and fieldworkers in Israel and the West Bank for the
purpose of
'spying on the Israelis.' " She was reported saying, "By the time the
Israelis
caught on to what was going on and expelled a fieldworker, they
[presumably
Sister Miriam and her co-conspirators] would have a replacement ready."
The
Jewish Week article added that "the proposal was accepted without
dissent, and
ways of obtaining church funds for it were discussed."

The report was a complete fabrication. No one at the LaGrange
Conference had
suggested such a plan, least of all Sister Miriam, and she was stunned
when
Wagner telephoned from Chicago informing her of the printed
allegations.

Page 265 -- American Jews Made to Feel Guilty

In its efforts to quell criticism of Israel, the pro-Israel community's
first
goal is to still Jewish critics. In this quest it receives strong
support from
the Israeli government. Every government of Israel gives high priority
to
maintaining unity among U.S. Jews. This unity is regarded as a main
line of
Israel's defense - second in importance only to the Israeli army - and
essential
to retaining the support Israel must have from the United States
government.

American Jews are made to feel guilty about enjoying safety and the
good life in
the United States while their fellow Jews in Israel hold the ramparts,
pay high
taxes, and fight wars.

Page 269 -- Noam Chomsky One of Few Able to Criticize Israel

In my 22 years in Congress, I can recall no entry in Congressional
Record
disclosing a speech critical of Israeli policy by a Jewish member of
the House
or Senate. Jewish members may voice discontent in private conversation
but never
on the public record. Only a few Jewish academicians, like Noam
Chomsky, a
distinguished linguist, have spoken out. Most, like Chomsky, are
protected in
their careers by tenure and thus are able to become controversial
without
jeopardizing their positions.

Page 284 -- 'One Word of Sympathy' Can Bring Jewish Hate Mail

Those who speak up pay a price, says Stone, noting that journalists
with long
records of championing Israeli causes are flooded with "Jewish hate
mail,
accusing them of anti-Semitism" if they dare express "one word of
sympathy for
Palestinian Arab refugees."

Page 287 -- Lobby Tentacles Reach Even to 'Main Street'

Efforts by the pro-Israel lobby to influence American opinion and
policy most
often focus on national institutions, particularly the federal
government. yet
the lobby in its various forms branches out widely into American life
beyond the
seat of government on the Potomac River. Local political leaders,
businesses,
organizations and private individuals in many fields experience unfair
criticism
and intimidation for becoming involved in the debate over Middle East
issues.
Many on "Main Street" have pad a price for speaking out. Particularly
distressing are instances of discrimination against Americans of Arab
ancestry.

Page 295, 296 -- Possible Accusation of Anti-Semitism Keeps Journalists
in Line

The Israeli lobby works diligently to keep journalists from rowing
against the
tide of pro-Israel orthodoxy. This mission is accomplished in part
through
carefully arranged, "spontaneous" public outcries designed to
intimidate.
Columnist Rowland Evans writes: "When we write what is perceived to be
an
anti-Israeli column, we get mail from all over the country with the
same points
and phrasing. there is a consistent pattern."

The ubiquitous cry of "anti-Semitism" is brought to bear on short
notice, and it
is this charge which has been most responsible for compelling
journalists to
give Israel better than equal treatment in coverage of Middle East
events.

Page 296 -- American Media 'Overwhelmed' by Lobby Pressure

Journalist Harold R. Piety observes that "the ugly cry of anti-Semitism
is the
bludgeon used by the Zionists to bully non-Jews into accepting the
Zionist view
of world events, or to keep silent." In late 1978, Piety, withholding
his
identity in order not to irritate his employer, wrote an article on
"Zionism and
the American Press" for Middle East International in which he decried
"the
inaccuracies , distortions and - perhaps worstâ*" inexcusable omission
of
significant news and background material by the American media in its
treatment
of the Arab-Israeli conflict."

Piety traces the deficiency of U.S. media in reporting on the Middle
East to
largely successful efforts by the pro-Israel lobby to "overwhelm the
American
media with a highly professional public relations campaign, to
intimidate the
media through various means and, finally, to impose censorship when the
media
are compliant and craven." He lists threats to editors and advertising
departments, orchestrated boycotts, sanders, campaigns of character
assassination, and personal vendettas among the weapons employed
against
balanced journalism.

Page 301 -- Radio Producer 'Terminated' For Trying to Balance Coverage

On a Saturday morning in 1977 producer Debbie Gage encountered peril of
a
different sort when she put on a one-hour program of interviews with
local
people of Palestinian origin on Minneapolis Public Radio. The station's
switchboard was promptly swamped with calls demanding equal time for
the Israeli
viewpoint. Gage demurred, responding that she had decided to do her
program
because of the heavy coverage being given to the Israeli view in the
local
press. She saw her broadcast as "simply a small attempt to redress that
imbalance."

The following Monday news director Gary Eichten informed Gage that her
job would
be terminated in three weeks and that a program devoted to pro-Israelt
views
would be aired the following Saturday. Eichten denied that he was
pressured into
doing the follow-up program, but, as station intern Yvonne Pearson
observes, "If
dozens of angry phone calls aren't pressure, I don't know what is."

Page 303 -- 'Army of Workers' Swamp Congressmen, Editors

Major national media have not escaped these pressures. Organized letter
campaigns are a favored tactic of pro-Israel groups. Lawrence Mosher, a
staff
correspondent for the National Journal, observes that such groups have
a
seemingly indefatigable army of workers who will generate hundreds or
thousands
of letters to Congressmen, to newspaper editors, etc., whenever the
occasion
seems to warrant it.

. . . Editors are sometimes weighed down by it in advance and inhibited
from
doing things they would normally do if they didn't know that an
onslaught of
letters, cables and telephone calls would follow if they write or show
such and
such.

Page 311, 312 -- Holocaust Museum Director Berenbaum (Former Lobbyist)
in the
Newsroom

Fairness in reporting Middle East events has been a special concern of
the
Washington Post over the last several years. Complaints from pro-Israel
groups
about its coverage of Lebanon - especially the nassacres at Sabra and
Shatila
â*" led to the unprecedented placement of a representative from a
pro-Israel
group as an observer in the Post newsroom.

The idea arose when Michael Berenbaum, executive director of the Jewish
Community Council of Greater Washington, council president Nathan
Lewin, and
Hyman Bookbinder, area representative of the American Jewish Committee,
met with
Post editors to inform them that the paper had "a Jewish problem." The
meeting
followed substantial correspondence between the Washington Post and
Jewish
community leaders. As an accommodation, executive editor Benjamin C.
Bradlee
agreed to have Berenbaum observe Post news operations for one week,
provided he
not lobby or "interfere with the editorial process in any way."

Page 313 -- Pressure to 'Stop the Ads'

Direct pressure to reject paid advertising unsympathetic to Israeli
interests
was applied beginning in late 1982 against major media in Maryland,
Pennsylvania
and the District of Columbia. The National Association of Arab
Americans (NAAA),
a Washington-based private membership organization, purchased radio air
time in
these areas for commercials questioning the U.S. government's decision
to
increase aid to Israel.

Typical of the messages was this one aired in Pennsylvania:

While there are more than 12 million Americans unemployed, with over
half a
million from Pennsylvania alone, Congress decided to give Israel two
billion,
485 million of your tax dollars. Senator Arlen Specter [D-PA] is on the
Senate
Appropriations Committee that wanted to give Israel even more. Is
funding for
Israel more important than funding for Pennsylvania? Call your senators
and ask
them if they voted to give your tax dollars to Israel."

Thirteen Pennsylvania stations contracted to carry the NAAA message,
but four of
these canceled the ads after only three days of an agreed-upon five-day
run.
Mike Kirtner, an ad salesman representing two stations in Allentown,
informed
the NAAA that its ads were being taken off the air because "they were
getting a
lot of calls, hate calls. and a lot of pressure was coming down on the
station
to stop the ads." Station management refused to comment on who was
pressuring
the station to take the ads off the air.

Mike George, salesman for an Erie station which canceled the ads, was
more
frank. He informed the NAAA that the station owner had been called by
"a group
of Jewish businessmen who told him that if he did not cancel the ads
immediately, they were going to cause his radio and television stations
to lose
hundreds of thousands of dollars."
