Today Russian @mfa_Russia has officially replied on its telegram channel to @yairlapid statement that you see below and this reply deserves to be translated and posted in full. A long thread with full translation below, link to the source in the end 👇🏼
We paid attention to the anti-historical statements of Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, which largely explain the course of the current Israeli government to support the neo-Nazi regime in Kyiv. The Israeli minister said literally the following: “The Jews did not destroy 1/
themselves during the Holocaust. Blaming Jews for antisemitism is a blatant level of racism against Jews”. For some reason, the Western press (and some of our liberals) still argue about whether there are neo-Nazis in Ukraine. The Jewish origin of Vladimir @ZelenskyyUa is 2/
given, as one of the "reinforced concrete" arguments. The argument is not only untenable, but also crafty. History, unfortunately, knows tragic examples of cooperation between Jews and the Nazis. In Poland and other countries of Eastern Europe, the Germans appointed Jewish 3/
industrialists as heads of ghettos and Jewish councils (“Judenrats”), some of whom are remembered for absolutely monstrous deeds. Jakub Leikin in Warsaw conducted surveillance of the Jews and reported everything to the German occupation administration, dooming his compatriots 4/
to certain, and sometimes painful death, and Chaim Rumkowski generally offered the Jews of Lodz to give their children to the Nazis in exchange for saving the lives of adult residents of the ghetto, there are many evidence of his words. It only remains to agree with H. Dreyfus 5/
a professor of history at Tel Aviv University, that the complicity of Jews in the Holocaust is a “marginal phenomenon” (but not a taboo and is the subject of research). At the same time, the historical tragedy lies in the fact that if during the Second World War some Jews 6/
were forced to participate in crimes, then V. Zelensky, who speculates on his roots, does this quite consciously and quite voluntarily. He hides behind the origin himself and covers them with natural neo-Nazis, spiritual and blood heirs of the executioners of his people. The 7/
Jewish origin of the president is not a guarantee of protection from rampant neo-Nazism in the country. Ukraine, by the way, is not the only one like this now. The President of Latvia @valstsgriba, also has Jewish roots. And he also “successfully” covers up the rehabilitation 8/
of the Waffen SS in his country. Lapid and his cabinet don’t see this? Just as cynically they ignore the epidemic of destruction and desecration of monuments to the real righteous people of the world - the soldiers of the Red Army who stopped the Holocaust and saved the Jewish 9/
world. How many times did the Israeli Foreign Ministry call for the delivery of sharp protests on this occasion from the ambassadors of Poland, Bulgaria, the Baltic countries, the same Ukraine? Lapid and his cabinet do not see that Zelensky is simply “completing” the scenario 10/
described by the German pastor M. Niemoller. First, in Ukraine in 2014, they came for the communists, then for the socialists, then, the entire "civilized" world was silent when the Russians were "abolished" in Ukraine. Is there not enough imagination to understand which 11/
“non-indigenous” people will go “on the knives*” and “to the gilyak**” after moskals***?
*Russian/Ukrainian idiom meaning to be stabbed or cut
**Ukranian idiom meaning to be killed (gilyak is a colloquial form of guillotine)
***Ukranian word for Russians, someone from Moscow. 12/
[Here is the] clue. That's what really exists in Ukraine, even if we leave out the frenzied Russophobia and the fight against everything Russian, it's the most extreme antisemitism and Romophobia, even thinking about which not so long ago was unthinkable. Nationalist parties 13/
began to promote their antisemitic agenda immediately after the collapse of the USSR, but have become especially active in recent years. The Svoboda party of Oleg Tyagnibok was included in the list of neo-Nazi organizations by the Jewish World Congress, which did not prevent 14/
it from becoming the fourth party in the country in 2012. Since the coup in 2014, antisemitism has flourished in Ukraine. The report of the Minister for Relations with the Diaspora of Israel, @naftalibennett (PM now), indicates that in 2017 the number of antisemitic incidents 15/
including dozens of acts of vandalism in museums, synagogues and memorials, increased manifold in Ukraine. Ukraine has become the leader among all the countries of the former USSR in terms of the number of antisemitic incidents, and some publications indicate that Ukraine 16/
generally surpasses all the countries of the former USSR combined in their number. One of the prominent representatives of the Jewish movement in Ukraine, Eduard Dolinsky, recently feared the termination of the activities of his organization (“Ukrainian Jewish Committee”). 17/
Torchlight processions with portraits of Stepan Bandera through the streets of Kyiv with the slogans “Get out, the Jude!”, as well as the inscriptions of vandals on the synagogues (“death to the kikes*”) speak for themselves.
*Used word “жид” which is Russian equivalent of it 18/
Last year, on Hanukkah, neo-Nazis desecrated the menorah in Kyiv, and in Nikolaev, anti-Semites cut the garland on Hanukkah. So far - only a garland. It is not only Jews who suffer. Gypsies (@mfa_Russia uses this word instead of word Roma) are also often persecuted for their 19/
ethnic origin. Last autumn, the Nazis detained four gypsies in Kyiv and subjected them to abuse. Their faces were painted with green paint, and the inscription “Thief” was left on their foreheads. An equally egregious incident also occurred in the very center of the Ukrainian 20/
capital. An unidentified person met gypsies on the street, and using profanity, ordered the representatives of the community to leave Independence Square. Such cases are reported constantly, another thing is that they all are treated by Ukraine at best as “petty hooliganism”. 21/
Despite the existence of the law “On Preventing and Combating Anti-Semitism in Ukraine”, which Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed in 2020, its provisions do not apply. Everyday and political antisemitism and Nazism are not suppressed, on the contrary, they are nurtured. The 22/
authorities and law enforcement agencies are calm about the Judeophobic cries at the "Bandera" marches, all because the current Kyiv regime is confident in its infallibility. Such “state building” is especially immoral for a country that lost 1.5 million Jews during the 23/
Holocaust, and in whose capital there is a memorial to those who died in Babi Yar. The end. 24/24

This is where we are, @mfa_Russia tells Jews what is antisemitism and calls Lapid and Bennet government enablers of neo-Nazis… no words

I have translated and added subtitles to the latest video speech by Vladimir Putin from two hours ago. Please don’t let it go in vain - I want everyone to see what a speech of true fascism looks like.

No further comment needed, it’s all here, in his speech
For clarification if anyone is not familiar with the term, here is what “Fifth column mean”:
For those asking:
The original clip on Rossiya24 had 2 minutes with last 10 seconds removed, so I used RBC channel to find the clip and to add these 10 seconds
Both links with both clips are here:……

Since people do not understand how awful and misleading @Mastercard and @Visa decisions are, I want to expose them and show that they are not helping the Putin’s regime, but inadvertently (I hope so) helping it. A thread (please spread): 0/11…
First - a disclaimer. I have a bank account in Russia from when I worked there more than 14 years ago, but I’m not using it and it has about 300 dollars, I have bank accounts in other countries and they are all fine and working, so I am not directly affected by this measure.
Now let’s have a closer look on what both companies did (see screenshots with the excerpt from their statements, links to them in the last tweet): the companies now prohibit to use Visa & Mastercard issued in Russia abroad, and prohibit cards from abroad to be used in Russia 2/11 ImageImage

I had to see this thread by myself to believe it’s real. It is.
There are several important legal matters this thread raises:
1. Does CAIR has an authority to decide if embassy moving is legal or not per American law? If so, from which legal document this authority stems? 1/
2. According to your thread you believe mentioning “Islamism” aka “Islamic fundamentalism” - a political ideology that in some branched like Wahhabism or Qutbism calls for violence - is islamophobia. Is it your official position? Do you support Islamism officially? 2/
3. Smearing implies making up false claims. There is a video of @ZahraBilloo full speech. Does her video have anything to do with selfie of @JGreenblattADL? Do you think video proof is not sufficient?
4. “Israeli snipers were killing protesters & medics” - is a verifiable lie. 3/

Let’s clarify something. Kerry indeed leaked sensitive intelligence to Iran when he was not authorized to do it as he was not in the office anymore. This information was not in a public domain when Kerry revealed it. Let’s examine the sequence of events. A short thread: 👇🏼
Kerry met with Zarif around April 20, 2018 and held other “shadow diplomacy” meetings with senior Iranian officials. According to a recently leaked recording of Javad Zarif, it is when the information about 200 strikes was mentioned to him by Kerry.…
On September 04, 2018, half a year later, when it became apparent that someone has already leaked it (not sure who did it was known to Israelis, but they may have learned it already), the information about 200 strikes was confirmed publicly by Yisrael Katz…

Check out the article below. It outlines few current issues Jews face, when #IHRA definition of antisemitism, the most profound one, is applied. Critics bring straw arguments like “it doesn’t allow to criticize Israel without being called antisemitic” which is simply not true. 1/
Jews are told they cannot define hate against them, because, you know, modern activists claim modern Jews do not have any empirical experience in surviving antisemitism, xenophobia, or racism since those are matters of the past and today Jews live privileged lives. Ridiculous? 2/
Yes, it is. The other reason why we cannot define the hate against us, because Israel is considered a huge obstacle to Jewish oppression. It simply doesn’t allow Jews to be oppressed as they used to be before in MENA, Europe, USSR, Africa & Asia. So Jews were reappointed to be 3/
