Old news: as described in recent historical non fiction books, when Putin came to power, he made a lot of personnel changes within the Ru gov & within Ru influential institutions. One such change was the removal of the existing leader(s) of Russian Jewry/Judaism at the time. 1/
Pre-Putin Jewry has been depicted in the literature as closer to American Jewry w different levels of religiosity, from secular to orthodox. Although, the picture is not certain. What has certainly been reported is that along with the removal of existing leader(s) came the 2/
appointment of new leader(s) of Russian Jewry/Judaism. Along with new leadership came a redefinition of Ru Jewry to a practice similar to what is known in America -particularly Brooklyn$Jersey -as ultra Orthodox Judaism. Putin anointed a peculiar ultra orthodox sect, the Chabad /
to be the figural &practical leader of Ru Jewry. While ultra orthodox trends in America seem to gain traction there are distinctions from the Chabad but many ultra orthodox are also Chabad.
Y did Putin put the Chabad in power in Ru &depose of existing practices?What is Chabad?4/
Well here is one tid bit. You know your from New York when - as a child -you’ve been accosted by religious Jews near Columbia University wearing top hats who ask forcefully “are you Jewish?” If like me, you are Jewish, you might answer yes. New York Jews know well what happens 5/
next. Your arm & head will be promptly wrapped with some black leather strap, blocks will be involved, & at least one other man in a top heat will likely begin to circle you & both will chant. Lasting only a few minutes, at the age of 11, it can feel quite a bit longer. 6/
When the black leather wrapping block ritual is completed, the man will inevitably hand you a business card. For the Messiah. A business card soliciting you to buy into the eternal magic powers of some Rando rabbi described as the Messiah. Then you are free to go. Needless to 7/
say, it is wise to ignore or say no when asked by a man with a beard in a top hat holding black leather straps and blocks if you are Jewish. Ok so what does this have to do with Putin & organized crime? 8/
Well, to start, the crew with the Messiah business cards & the mental stability 🙄 to aggressively & intimidatingly question strangers, particularly children, who appear to look Jewish are what is known as members of the Chabad or Chabadic Jews. This is the small extreme 8/
Unsettling sect that Putin put in place as the face of Ru Jewry. Now the vast majority of practicing Ru Jews are Chabad. As a new unknown mysterious yet diehard religious fanatic group,the Chabad was a strategically genius move by Putin as it consolidated his power &corruption10/
Chabad follows only strict Torah law so money laundering bribery threading slander etc are not forbidden by any means. They have been the perfect vehicle for Putin to spread far right authoritarianism as well as provide him a links to America & Israel. Their power also lies in11/
their connection to the wealthiest individuals in the world both evangelical and ultra orthodox, from the Wilkes Brothers to Sheldon Adelson & their circles of wealthy religiously duped friends. It is concerning that Chabadic rabbis are taking over synagogues in Asia & Israel 12/
As it is now firmly established folklore among the power player influencer oligarch Jewish families in Asia & Israel that “Putin always loved the Jews” in the context of some story involving an “old woman.” From the mouths of Chabadic rabbis to the ears of the masses, Putin 13/
has assured himself a long period of die hard support from Israel & Adelson et al., something which trickles down (or rains) into America & across the globe as can be seen by the rise of right wing authoritarianism & corruption w wealth in the hands of a small connected few 14/
The spread can be heard in the tropes of Ben Shapiro, in the calls to curtail women’s rights, the push for ethnocentrism & isolationism, as well as, the vilification & scapegoating of Muslims & dehumanization of Palestinians. End/
