Stalinists. I hate those guys.

I don’t mean to be a poster of only bad news, but when I sent a link to my previous post, I was told by a rather well informed reader that he had seen nothing in the US press about the SPD walkout during the Holocaust memorial.

Yesterday I read this story from Google’s list of sources, few of which were US press based. (This may have changed by the time you read this. Here’s hoping.)

A few choice quotes:

…some 20 members of the Russian parliament from the Motherland and Communist parties, demanded that Jewish organisations be banned throughout Russia on the grounds that they are extremist in nature, hostile to the Russian populace and implicated in ritual child murder.

… the MPs suggested that Jews themselves engineered anti-Semitic attacks against themselves …

…the whole democratic world is today under the financial and political control of international Jewry…

What year is it, anyway? 1939?

I do like this response, quoted in Ha’Aretz:

“I’m not a psychiatrist, and I can’t help them if they’re crazy,” said Russia’s co-chief rabbi, Berel Lazar.
