Donetsk (Ukraine) (AFP) - Ukraine's pro-Russian rebel chief on Monday branded the country's leaders "miserable" Jews in an apparent anti-Semitic jibe.





Alexander Zakharchenko, leader of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, claimed that Kiev's pro-Western leaders were "miserable representatives of the great Jewish people".

"I can't remember a time when Cossacks were led by people who have never held a sword in their hands," Zakharchenko told a press conference in the eastern rebel stronghold of Donetsk, in a reference to Ukraine's nationalist forebears, the Cossacks.

Zakharchenko said that the country's historical nationalists "would turn in their graves if they could see who is running Ukraine."

Anti-Semitic sentiment remains widespread in Ukraine, where leaders are commonly labelled as Jewish by those seeking to discredit them.

The comments by Zakharchenko, who was flanked by the leader of the neighbouring rebel-held region of Lugansk, Igor Plotnitsky, were carried live by Russian news channel Rossiya-24.

The rebels leaders on Monday announced a mass call-up, aimed at bolstering their forces to 100,000 troops.

Fighting between Ukrainian forces and the pro-Russian rebels, which has claimed 5,100 lives since April, has surged in recent weeks after the collapse of a tenuous ceasefire deal.

How fortunate that NATO and the US are lining up to fight this monster.

The $64,000 dollar question is, will this increase or decrease the DNR and LPR's recruitment forces? If increase, then you know what time it is.

What's with calling jews a great people? Putin uses a similar tactic when he calls the Americans his partners. Could be a naive attempt to split jew factions (like splitting a funky mud puddle).

He's pushing buttons in Kiev.

This comment says Poroshenko is Jewish.

The comments in the article are interesting.

The context of Alexander Zakharchenko's comment, as clarified in the second paragraph of this article, that Kiev's pro-Western leaders were "miserable representatives of the great Jewish people" appears incongruous with the opening paragraph which gives the impression of a definitive anti-Semitic slur. Therefore, I see not flagrant antisemitism, just rabble-rousing on the part of this AFP report.

However, truth be known: Petro Poroshenko, the chocolate billion won election to Ukraine Presidency, in part, misusing his mother's maiden name Poroshenko (Yevgenya Poroshenko) instead of his father's proper Jewish name Alexei Valtsman (or Waltsman). Petro Poroshenko's official spokewoman made an request to Forbes magazine to remove Poroshenko's name from a list of the World's wealthiest Jews. A chief Rabbi in Ukraine, Moshe Azman, asked Poroshenko about his name and reported that Poroshenko denied this and denied that he is even Jewish.

Why does Poroshenko hide from his Jewish ancestry? What is the problem here with name duplicity? Could he not have won the election with a Jewish identity? It appears Poroshencko, himself, stokes the flames of ethnic polarity.

In any case, wishing the freedom fighters in the Donetsk People's Republic all the success in the world to repel Ukraine oppression. It is not a lot to ask for to simple want a representative government, something east Ukraine did not get from Kiev.

In the KKK's 1920's heyday the uniforms were a very big moneymaker (did some Jewish rag trader get the big contract?). There were millions of members who had to buy the official costume which IIRC cost ~$20 back then--what's today's equivalent cost? $300? & uber Jew-toady Prez Wilson gave 20's-era KKK huge boosts.

Ukraine has so many expats suddenly put into major positions that it's reported that gov't meetings ironically have to be conducted in Russian since the int'l technocrat types often can't speak Ukrainian.
