Russian Jews urge Israel to continue murdering, stealing and pillaging

If you thought that American or European Zionists were bad enough, then pause and take a look at their Russian counterparts. These exhibit the standard obnoxiousness of Zionists everywhere – supremacism, racism, exceptionalism – but with an added flavour that is characteristic of most Jews of the former Soviet Union: brutishness, crudeness and lack of human empathy.

On 9 April, 100 Russian Jewish notables wrote to the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, urging him to ignore a recent plea by US Jews to the Israeli government to pursue a peaceful solution to the conflict with the Palestinians.

The plea they were objecting to had been made a week earlier by a New-York-based liberal Zionist organization, the Israel Policy Forum, which works for a negotiated two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

In its plea to Netanyahu, the US’s Israel Policy Forum said:

We believe that this is a compelling moment for you and your new government to respond to President Obama’s call for peace by taking concrete confidence-building steps designed to demonstrate Israel’s commitment to a “two-states for two peoples” solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We urge you, in particular, to work closely with Secretary of State John Kerry to devise pragmatic initiatives, consistent with Israel’s security needs, which would represent Israel’s readiness to make painful territorial sacrifices for the sake of peace.

But weak and half-hearted as this was, it was too much for the former Soviet Jews, who included the president of the Russian Jewish Congress, Yuri Kanner, businessman Mikhail Fridman, one of the organization’s founders, and Pinchas Goldschmidt, a chief rabbi of Moscow and president of the Conference of European Rabbis.

In their letter to Netanyahu, Stalin’s Zionist sons said:

We, the Russian Jews … believe that the decisions of the head of the government of Israel on critical issues should be taken for the sake of [the] people of Israel only, based exclusively on Israel’s assessment of the situation. Decisions on national security issues must not be made under external pressure, regardless of its origins: world public opinion, US leaders or even influential American Jews.

They might as well have said:

We, the Chosen People, are superior to any other and shall murder, steal and pillage as we like, irrespective of the pain and harm we inflict on others. After all, did not the Old Testament say:

  • You will chase your enemies, and they shall fall by the sword before you. Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; your enemies shall fall by the sword before you. (Leviticus, 26:7–8)
  • When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations … you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy. (Deuteronomy 7:1–2)
  • Do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them … as the Lord your God has commanded you … (Deuteronomy 20:16)

It is time the world woke up to the reality of Jewish politics and the Zionist lobbies that have infested the body politic not just of Western countries, but also of Russia and all the former Soviet republics.

If most decent humans stood as one against Nazism and Apartheid South Africa, then why make an exception for the racist Zionists?
