Reports: Jews In Eastern Ukraine Told To Register

(Donetsk, Ukraine) There are numerous reports Jews Donetsk, in the eastern Ukraine, are being told to “register” with Ukrainians who want the area to become part of Russia.

A flyer orders Jews 16 and older to register or be deported, stripped of their citizenship and have their belongings seized.

There are concerns this is reminiscent of what happened in Nazi Germany.

There are also those who are suspicious because Russia has been saying the area has been taken over by fascists and neo-Nazis and arguing that’s why it should take over the area.

The question is whether the flyer is real or Kremlin propaganda.

When they register, they are told to pay a $50 fee and list all property they own and vehicles they own.

“In the year 2014, after all of the miles travelled and all of the journey of history, this is not just intolerable, it’s grotesque. It is beyond unacceptable,” US Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters after crisis talks in Geneva on Ukraine.

The flyer has the seal of the self-proclaimed People’s Republic of Donetsk according to the International Business Times though the leader of that groups denies involvement.

USA Today reported, “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.”

    Hmmmm, another lie from your US Government? How is this so different than Obmacare and the IRS spying? Obamacare, you WILL buy insurance and if you don’t you WILL be fined. The IRS knows how much money you have in the banks because they can access your account and take funds out without your authorization.

      Yes, of course, because is run by the US Government… Groan. This is just a bunch of junk put out by some guy with a printer and a ream of paper who wants to agitate with agitprop and guess what, he got you.

      IRS Spying? What? I don’t have insurance and IRS can put the $90 fine right on my bill next year. IRS has been able to seize your funds and put liens on your property and garnish your wages for decades, can’t blame Obama for that.

        It’s not a Government product I can’t call up the Government and buy health insurance. It’s a land grab by insurance companies to continue to be propped up now under the force of law. Like I said the IRS can go ahead and fine me. It would cost me about $250 a month to get insurance at the cheapest route I can find, versus about $90 IRS penalty next year. Guess which one I’m picking.

        If we had real government based health care like Canada or UK or Finland or Sweden that would be a huge sight better than what we got. Not sure why all the conservatives fought Obamacare tooth and nail. It’s a direct funnel of money from private citizens to big business, that’s usually what republicans are all about. If Reagan had proposed it they would have called it Reagancare and worshiped it.

        If you ever do need Medical care in a Hospital you do know the IRS will tap into your bank account and recover whatever funds necessary to recover the cost of your care. The Hospitals are no longer on the hook these days. They’re the collection agencies for the Government.

    You know why Ukraine can’t defend itself, because they gave up thier weapons. They deserve to be taken over. Goggle; ‘Trilateral Statement’

    • MikeBarret

      Ukraine agreed to surrender its nukes and those were the only weapons they agreed to give up. If you think they should right now be defending themselves with nuclear weapons, well, I would argue against that!

      • Bill

        Mike, true statement. Let’s give up our Nukes and see what happens. When the Ukraine gave them up they left nothing to deter an invasion but bullets. they’ve lost it now.

    To all of the people who are against Obama Care, if a person chooses not to buy health care, then they should have to pay a fee up front when they go to the emergency room. I will give you an example. My son use to work at a job where they did not offer health insurance. When he went to the doctor he had to pay $400.00 up front. After he was seen by the doctor, they refunded part of the money back to him. I think that when a person goes to the emergency room They need to pay a fee up front.
