It was the second day of Pesach celebrations on Tuesday and over 100 Jewish believers at the Donetsk synagogue had just finished praying. Several stayed to visit a bit longer; some shared a community meal, others just chatted with friends. A few community members were smoking outside when a car pulled up, five men in masks got out, and handed them pieces of paper. Witnesses said that on reading the text of the leaflets a few elderly Jewish women burst into tears.
The flyers were addressed to "Jews of Donetsk" from the "Independent Donetsk Republic" and ordered Jewish residents of the city to pay the new pro-Russian revolutionary authorities $50 apiece for individual registration, otherwise "the guilty ones would be deprived of their citizenship and deported outside the republic; their property would be confiscated."
The leaflet was stamped by the Donetsk People's Republic and signed: "Your People's Governor Denis Pushilin."
Pushilin publicily and very vehemently denied that he had ever signed such a letter.
Identical leaflets appeared under the windshield wipers of cars parked on Artur Avenue in the middle of town on Wednesday night. The threat left many of the 15,000 Jews of Donetsk "shocked and hysterical."
Sources from the local Jewish community said that the flyers were an attempt by the Kiev government to provoke a conflict and blame the attack on the Russians.
Speaking to the Jerusalem Post by phone from Kiev, Eduard Dolinsky of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee said that the flyers appeared to be a provocation by the new Kiev government (in other words, a FALSE FLAG operation). [Please see our article, "Kiev Protests: Another CIA Coordinated Color Revolution In Progress."]
Rabbi Pinchas Vyshetsky, a resident of Donetsk, also called the flyers a provocation by the Kiev government. If Pushilin and his supporters were responsible, he added, it flies in the face of "everything they did until now."
The text of the leaflet read like an accusation against Ukrainian Jews for their supposed support of the "Bandera Junta" in Kiev. THE IRONY, OF COURSE, IS THAT BANDERA WAS A NAZI COLLABORATOR. The stupidity of this claim defies belief.
The Jewish community sent people to the address given for registration to check into the matter but "THERE WAS NOBODY THERE" ...
Dr. Efraim Zuroff of the Simon Wiesenthal Center said.
What's even more ironic is that Aleksander Kriakov, a spokesman for the Kiev government in Donetsk is – according to Rabbi Vyshedski - "the most famous anti-Semite in the region."
Vyshedski wondered how supporters for the Kiev government who are trying to position themselves as "anti-fascist" could pick Kriakov as their spokesman.
One is left breathless by the callous way the American government is trying to "pull the wool" over the eyes of Americans - especially American Christians.
God help us all!!!
God bless all of you,
IN ADDITION, WE URGE YOU TO DOWNLOAD THE NEW ANTIPAS PAPERS, PRINT THEM OUT YOURSELF, AND STUDY THEM CAREFULLY; SHARE THEM WITH YOUR FRIENDS.
FINALLY, WE URGE YOU TO DOWNLOAD AND PRINT OUT THE FLYER WE SENT TO YOU RECENTLY.
Then make copies and take these copies out to the campuses where you live; pass them out; OR if that seems too "daring" for you right now, post them on telephone poles, the sides of buildings, on campus bulletin boards; post them in union halls, in the neighborhoods of the poor and downtrodden, near employment offices, wherever you can.
