As reported in Haaretz
That this was a hoax has been already pointed out. Far worse is that the Media still has his writers blog about it as if it were the truth. When The Telegraph did it yesterday, comments were closed after only three had been posted. Why?
Perhaps because of this, from Novosti Donbass:
“Yesterday, April 15, three unidentified men in balaclava with the flag of the Russian Federation pasted near the synagogue Donetsk anti-Semitic leaflets. Information reported by members of the Jewish community of Donetsk. They believe that in this way they tried to provoke a conflict, then to blame the attack on separatists.”
It says clearly that the members of the Jewish community found this leaflet, reported it, and reported that they thought the three men who put it up were provocateurs, trying to blame the separatists.
That is what the Jews there said – that is what the newspaper reported – but oh no, our hack pack knows better than the people right there who handed that leaflet in!
One final point: just because so many of us are sick of the blatant hypocrisy in the reports and opinion pieces by our hack pack does not mean that we are ‘Putin lovers’. I hope we’re not going back to the times when no arguments were allowed, when there were Reds under every bed and if one disagreed, one should go to Russia – but it certainly is starting to feel that way.
Just a pity then, isn’t it, that we can now gather information which is available on the internet and thus available to you lot – only, the media don’t do proper research any longer. One wonders why …
And reported in infowars
Hours after the Israeli media, dutifully echoed by USA Today, reported on leaflets demanding the registration of Jews in Ukraine – harking back to similar moves during the Nazi era – deputy director of the National Conference Supporting Jews (NCSJ), responsible for efforts in Russia, Ukraine, and the Baltic States, pronounced the leaflet bogus.
“It’s a fake flyer,” the deputy director, Lesley Weiss, told The Daily Dot. “It’s not true that they have to register or be deported,” he said after talking with Denis Pushilin, chairman of the pro-Russian Donetsk People’s Government.
The corporate media in the United States had insinuated the leaflets were distributed by pro-Russians in Donetsk, this feeding into hysterical propaganda warning of an imminent invasion by Russia of eastern Ukraine. The specter of anti-Semitism conjured the appropriate Nazi imagery ofKristallnacht and gas chambers at Auschwitz. It would have dovetailed nicely with the media campaign portraying Russian leader Vladimir Putin as Adolf Hitler.
Weiss said the flyers were designed to create anxiety among the city’s Jewish population that would be subsequently exploited in the West to portray pro-Russians as anti-Semitic. The Jewish community has dismissed the operation as a provocation, although it is uncertain who is responsible.
“You can image the anxiety it’s causing,” she said, noting that the tactic is reminiscent of the Nazis.
Secretary of State John Kerry and the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine – a fellow pro-coup collaborator, along with Victoria Nuland of the State Department – Geoffrey Pyatt wasted no time denouncing the leaflets, which fed into the propaganda campaign waged by the establishment media.
Before the incident fades away entirely as new events arise in Ukraine, we should ask cui bono – who benefits from such a brazen stunt. It certainly is not Ukrainians mistrustful of the junta in Kyiv, dominated as it is by fascists and others who celebrate the Banderivtsi, supporters of ultra-nationalist Stepan Bandera who declared war in Jewry in Ukraine following the Second World War. Following the coup instigated by the State Department, there were widespread fears when anti-Semites from the Right Sector and Svoboda commanded high posts in the junta government.
The russophobe junta in Kyiv and the United States, both interested in exacerbating the conflict with Russia, are the only two parties that would have benefited from the ruse, had it been successful. The false flag would have portrayed Russian-speaking Ukrainians as anti-Semitic, a characteristic that carries plenty of sensationalistic weight in a politically correct media – unless, of course, the anti-Semites are working for the United States and attempting to overthrow yet another democratically elected leader targeted for elimination.
