Russia's slippery slope

AP reports:

A group of nationalist Russian lawmakers called Monday for a sweeping investigation aimed at outlawing all Jewish organizations and punishing officials who support them, accusing Jews of fomenting ethnic hatred and saying they provoke anti-Semitism.

In a letter dated Jan. 13, about 20 members of the lower house of parliament, the State Duma, asked Prosecutor General Vladimir Ustinov to investigate their claims and to launch proceedings "on the prohibition in our country of all religious and ethnic Jewish organizations as extremist."

How do you like that logic: "Russia has Jews. Russians are anti-Semetic. Anti-Semitism is bad. Let's get rid of all the Jews so there won't be anymore anti-Semitism."


Only in these modern times, where truth is relative, could an elected official spew their hatred while blaming the target of their loathing for breeding the very racism they project. Europe and Russia have been so poisoned by their own anti-Semitism that they have abandoned even the most basic logic in their campaign to erradicate the Jews.

In other news today, Jews are fleeing French anti-Semitism by emigrating to Isreal. AFP reports:

Unofficial figures put the number of immigrants to Israel from France at about 2,500 in 2004. Aliya Day was attended by some 4,350 people, the highest figure ever, according to David Roche, director of the Jewish Agency in France. [...]

A report from the French interior ministry in December said racist violence including anti-Semitism had increased by over 70 percent in 2004, with 194 reported acts and 711 threats, compared to 112 acts and 418 threats over the same period in 2003.

Maybe this is part of a new Franco-Russian alliance. After all, the French have made dirtier little friendships in the past.
