Leaflet tells Jews to register in East Ukraine


World leaders and Jewish groups condemned a leaflet handed out in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk in which Jews were told to "register" with the pro-Russian militants who have taken over a government office in an attempt to make Ukraine part of Russia, according to Ukrainian and Israeli media.

Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city's Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee "or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated," reported Ynet News, Israel's largest news website, and Ukraine's Donbass news agency.

Secretary of State John Kerry said the language of the leaflets "is beyond unacceptable" and condemned whomever is responsible.
...
The leaflet begins "Dear Ukraine citizens of Jewish nationality" and states that all people of Jewish descent over 16 years old must report to the Commissioner for Nationalities in the Donetsk Regional Administration building and "register."

It says the reason is because the leaders of the Jewish community of Ukraine supported Bendery Junta, a reference to Stepan Bandera, the leader of the Ukrainian nationalist movement that fought for Ukrainian independence at the end of World War II, "and oppose the pro-Slavic People's Republic of Donetsk," a name adopted by the militant leadership.

The leaflet then described which documents Jews should provide: "ID and passport are required to register your Jewish religion, religious documents of family members, as well as documents establishing the rights to all real estate property that belongs to you, including vehicles."

Consequences for non-compliance will result in citizenship being revoked "and you will be forced outside the country with a confiscation of property," it said. A registration fee of $50 would be required, it said.

Pro-Russian official denies involvement in notice telling Jews to register, aide says
A spokesman for a pro-Russian official whose name was on flyers telling Jews in one restive Ukrainian city to register denied that their organization had any role in the leaflets -- and accused pro-Ukrainian groups of orchestrating the controversy.
...
The reports have caught the attention of U.S. diplomats. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday called the notices "grotesque."

An Israeli official also told Fox News that the issue was brought to the attention of the Israeli embassy and foreign ministry, though they also presume the leaflets were handed out by local militia members as a kind of provocation. The official said the notices were distributed by masked men.
...
Kerry earlier addressed the flyer reports during a press conference in Geneva, where he and other diplomats are meeting on the crisis in Ukraine.

"Just in the last couple of days, notices were sent to Jews in one city indicating that they have to identify themselves as Jews," he said. "In the year 2014, after all of the miles traveled and all of the journey of history, this is not just intolerable -- it's grotesque. It is beyond unacceptable."

Kerry said if anyone engages in these kinds of activities on either side, "there is no place for that."

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said U.S. officials are trying to gather more information.


It appears it really happened, but who's behind it is unclear.

I heard something about this story earlier. They're Jews, they know the routine.

Kidding aside. I don't understand the isolation of Judaism. I also don't understand the concern for Israel. I don't want the persecution of anyone. I also don't understand why we need to worry about other Israel. It has mild strategic usefulness. No oil. Is always under scrutiny. The Jews say this is their promised land. I get that. How can any Christian support their concern? They say Jesus wasn't the 2nd coming of God and are awaiting theirs. That is a slap in the face.

Plus I think all religions are a culling of the masses from wrong doing. In the time Islam becomes as old as Christianity, they'll be nearly as "docile" as Christians think they are now.

Israel is becoming a significant regional player in NG (natural gas) with their relatively recent new discoveries, onshore and offshore.

Israel has only "mild" strategic usefulness? Like Kosovo, when its Muslims were being trampled upon by the Serbian majority in Yugoslavia during the Clinton presidency? Does someone expect U.S. foreign policy to be completely Machiavellian, and based only on immediate and tangible interests; restricted to terms of nothing beyond commercial trade considerations and the balance of natural resources among various nations? There's a sizable list of inventions and technologies that have come to the U.S. from Israel. Of course, we support Israel with an extraordinary commercial and security-related aid package, but that post sounds as if someone is looking at only one side of the balance sheet.

As far as that sentence about Jesus, the Second Coming and a "slap in the face", what's that about? Is someone suggesting that U.S. foreign policy be conducted according to the dictates or preferences of a Christian theocracy?
