Wow is this really how far we have moved backwards?
Per USA Today, Jews are being asked to register in Donetsk, Eastern Ukraine:
Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk where pro-Russian militants have taken over government buildings were told they have to “register” with the Ukrainians who are trying to make the city become part of Russia, according to Israeli media.
Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city’s Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee “or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated,” reported Ynet News, Israel’s largest news website.
Donetsk is the site of an “anti-terrorist” operation by the Ukraine government, which has moved military columns into the region to force out militants who are demanding a referendum be held on joining Russia.
Ah, the all-purpose terrorism-prevention excuse that History has taught us to know and love.
The details sound eerily familiar… we have seen this movie before!!:
The leaflet begins, “Dear Ukraine citizens of Jewish nationality,” and states that all people of Jewish descent over 16 years old must report to the Commissioner for Nationalities in the Donetsk Regional Administration building and “register.”
It says 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.
The leaflet then described which documents Jews should provide: “ID and passport are required to register your Jewish religion, religious documents of family members, as well as documents establishing the rights to all real estate property that belongs to you, including vehicles.”
Consequences for non-compliance will result in citizenship being revoked “and you will be forced outside the country with a confiscation of property.” A registration fee of $50 would be required, it said.
There’s no word yet on whether armbands will also be required.
I have written many times on how I actively spoke anywhere I could, but especially at Senior Centers, educating people about what was in the ObamaCare bill, including death panels, before and during the cram-down period.
After one of my talks, a little old lady, Ruth, was waiting for me at the back of the room. As people were leaving and I approached her, she grabbed my hands as she thanked me with tears in her eyes. She then rolled up her sleeves pointing at the somewhat faded concentration camp number tattooed on her arm. She said again, “Thank you!!… And please keep fighting, because it is happening again!” She added, “I don’t know how people can’t see it… especially people my age, especially Jews?!? Obama is evil and the evil he is directed by is just a continuation of what caused this!”, as she pointed to her concentration camp number, “ObamaCare is part of it and if people don’t wake up it will happen again, here in the United States and around the globe! Why don’t they see it?”
Every once in awhile I get weary; feeling I am not making a difference, not reaching or changing the minds of enough people. I feel like quitting! And then I remember Ruth and I am reenergized!!
I am half German and half Austrian. My parents were children and lived through the rise of Hitler, were drafted into service and their families were part of the underground. My mother was a Red Cross nurse and my father was the head of an infantry medical unit, on the German side. They Met and married in an American prisoner or war camp after the war. I grew up with the tales of their childhoods, the war, the Nazis, the corruption of Fascism, and the courage of those who stood up.
We all owe it to ourselves, our children and grandchildren and most of all to all the Ruths, who lived and died, under Hitler and Stalin, to prevent anything like that from ever happening again and to fight for the freedom given us here in the United States.
Fascism = Communism = Marxism = Progressivism = Socialism… ObamaCare is Socialized Medicine and registering Jews in the Ukraine is Fascism/Marxism all over again.
Get-Involved, Educate Yourself and Stand-up!!
