Ukraine's 'Jew Register' Either a Hoax or a Crude Extortion Scheme

If you saw the article earlier today or yesterday regarding, please spread this around. The outrage to the original thing was understandable, but people do need to know what is going on. 

Good to finally know the source. People weren’t sure of the source of the fliers to begin with, but Time’s claim that “the Jews of eastern Ukraine are in little danger” is bullshit considering:

Several anti-Semitic attacks, including a stabbing and the attempted torching of a synagogue, have occurred in Ukraine since the eruption in November of a revolution over the perceived pro-Russian policies of former President Viktor Yanukvych. He was ousted from power in February. [source]

and these are just some selected antisemitic hate crimes in the Ukraine that have happened within the last few months:

  • March 13, 2014 - Kiev - A rabbi was physically assaulted and taunted with anti-Semitic slurs by two unidentified individuals.
  • February 28, 2014 – Simferopol – Vandals spray painted “Death to the Jews” and swastikas on the outside of the Ner Tamid Reform Synagogue in the capital of Ukraine’s Crimean republic.  
  • February 24, 2014 – Zaporozhye – Molotov cocktails were thrown at the Giymat Rosa synagogue and community center.  No one was hurt in the nighttime attack, although the building suffered exterior cosmetic damage.  
  • January 26. 2014 – Kiev – A Jewish man returning from synagogue was assaulted by an unknown attacker. The attack was the third such incident within two weeks.

  • January 17, 2014 - Kiev - A 28 year-old Yeshiva student was beaten and stabbed by three youths as he was walking home from synagogue services. He managed to return to the synagogue where he collapsed. He was taken to the hospital and underwent emergency surgery on his foot.

  • January 11, 2014 - Kiev - An Israeli-born Hebrew teacher was followed home from synagogue services and beaten by four men. [source]

It’s also important to understand how incredibly antisemitic this act was, even if it was a form of political bullshit - the ADL basically said that it was just that awhile ago, but there was a lot of confusion around the source of the fliers and that doesn’t change how incredibly antisemitic this act was.

Basically, even though others and I stressed we weren’t sure of the sources of the flyers but that it’s an act of terrorism and violence even it came from a small group of bigots, I know that goyim are going to try to silence discussions of antisemitism in Europe and Ukraine because it turned out to not be the government. We said early on we weren’t sure as we spread information, but it’s never enough. People are going to find reason to discredit us and silence discussion of the escalating threats of antisemitism happening around the world like they always do.

The burgeoning ‘no big deal!’ response is so similar to what happened with the Kansas shootings. The message is: No Jews were actually hurt! Therefore you’re the Jew who cried wolf! …as if the intent behind/enabling the events is irrelevant. As if this shouldn’t be seen as a portent, the same trajectory that literally burst into flame 75-69 years ago.

I wonder if they think we’ve forgotten.

Forgotten or simply easily quieted.

On another note it’s just so depressing how these things go in cycles. I was only born in America because my great-great and great grandparents left Ukraine because of pogroms.

"Little immediate danger" is a hell of a frickin’ stretch, given the visceral terror that this flier was intended to cause.

Protip: This is a really bad question to ask when visiting the National Mall. We have 8 buildings surrounding the Mall, and a total of 19 museums, 9 research centers and the National Zoo. A S.H.I.E.L.D agent should know better! 

(We think she means the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in this case.)  

I love that this is on the Smithsonian’s tumblr
