Jews Accused of Enacting Genocide Against Russians?

First impression upon reading this breaking story from the Jewish Telegraphic Agency: someone decided to re-release an excerpt from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, translating into Russian, and changing some key facts.
But lamentably, this is no macabre attempt at humor, this is an official statement from a Russian legislator:

Jews are attempting to commit genocide against ethnic Russians, a Russian lawmaker claims in a recent article.
Nikolai Kolomiytsev, a former State Parliament deputy and member of the Russian Communist Party’s Central Committee, wrote the article, which was posted on the party’s Web site, according to a Jan. 18 report on
The article accuses Jews of causing unemployment and promulgating drug addiction and alcoholism in an attempt to undermine the naturally “collectivist” nature of Slavic peoples, thus hastening their extinction.

Promulgating drug addiction and alcoholism? Jews bringing down Gentile morality? This isn’t even original!
The Russian Communist Party, besides being notoriously anti-Semitic, is attempting to re-unify the former Soviet Union under a socialist banner. The party’s head, Gennady Zyuganov, plans to run for president of Russia in 2008. They got 16.75% of the vote in Moscow in 2005 — and in the arctic district of Nenetsia, they received 27% of the vote and beat Putin’s United Russia party.
They received 13.7% of the popular vote in the election which saw Vladimir Putin become the new president.
When an official party’s lawmaker says such things about Jews — and this party is getting parliamentary seats in various regions (Georgia’s region of Abhkazia also enlisted their support for its Communist Party) — and 51 out of 450 national parliamentary seats in 2003 — one can not help but notice.

  1. How about before they accuse the Jews of trying to ruin Russians, how about we talk about their arms deals with Iran and Syria. About how they sold Iran anti-aircraft weapons, wonder who those would be intended for? Or we could discuss their giving information to Hezbollah about IDF movements. Are they crazy? The Russians are still living the cold war with all these arms deals and radioactive assassinations. If they’re smart they will put some polonium in our matzah and say that everyone died next pesach because we put too much christian baby blood in.
    Bah, the russians hardly need Jewish help to drink, they’ve got that covered. Not even the Irish can take them on.

  2. I’m proud that on Jewschool we can counter Russian antisemitism with our own ethnic slurs about Russians. Clearly we are taking the moral high ground.

  3. What’s really funny, is that the far right is promoting the view that the Russian Revolution of 1917 was actually, in part, a case of Jewish led genocide against Russians, Ukrainians, and Christians. Just look at the last names of the leaders of the Bolsheviks at the time (lots of Jews) and the numbers of alleged victims (tens of millions) and there you have it….
    Viewed this way, the Holocaust is viewed as a regrettable counter measure.
    I don’t buy this; but it’s interested to compare and contrast the two anti-semitic narratives.

  4. Just wanted to mention that Protocols of Elders of Zion were actually written and compiled in Russia by the Tzar’s secret service “okhranka”. So that’s nothing new. Second, such claims are the very policy of major russian psedo-communist and pseudo-left parties, who, according to western political standards tend to be ultra-right wing (i.e. neonazi). The only difference is that they adopted red flags with hammer and a sickle instead of NSDP’s swastika.
    There’s stron public opinion that jews
    1)sold russia
    2)are the the source of alchoholism
    That’s because jews (in beleives of simple folk) are affliated with russian liberal and democratic parties and figures, and with “democratic” reforms and privatisation of early 90s. So, keep cool, it’s not a story, it’s everyday practice. We just don’t care and are packing our belongings 😉
    Ok, Le shana aba ba Yerushalaim!
