to the Attorney General of the RF Mr. V. V. Ustinov
concerning the increasing use against Russian Patriots
of Article 282 of the RF Criminal Code:
“Incitement to ethnic strife” with regard to Jews
103793 Moscow, B. Dmitrovka St., 15A
Office of the RF Attorney General
Mr. V. V. Ustinov
Dear Mr. Attorney General:
We must appeal to you because of the very unfavorable state of affairs
in our country which exhibits the signs of a hidden genocide against the
Russian people and its traditional culture. The specific legal part of our
Petition to be implemented is presented in its latter paragraphs (items 1-4).
However, since the issues we are talking about are under a strong taboo,
we feel it necessary not to limit ourselves to matter-of-fact, dry legalistic
forms, but to preface them with an explanatory description of the essence
of the problem at hand and to show the justifiable reasons for our concerns.
On Dec. 18, 2003, president V. V. Putin, during his TV address to the people,
cited the following statistics, demonstrating the government's “fight against
extremism:” in 1999, on the basis of Article 282 of the RF Criminal Code,
“incitement to ethnic strife,” four persons were convicted; in 2000 – 10,
in 2003 “there were opened over 60 cases, about 20 were brought before judges.
And there were about 17-20 convictions (V. Putin: a chat with Russia on Dec.
18, 2003. M., 2003. Page 53). We have reasons to believe that the established
trend is continuing.
The overwhelming majority of these cases were initiated by Jewish activists
or organizations who accuse their respondents of “anti-Semitism.” The overwhelming
majority of accused and convicted consider themselves to be Russian patriots.
Now among the accused we find a well-known politician and a publicist, the
former head of the State Committee for the Media, Mr. B. S. Mironov.
We admit that statements by Russian patriots about Jews are often sharply
negative, excessively emotional, and unacceptable for public discussions,
and this is interpreted by the courts as extremism. However, at the above
mentioned trials, there has never been an investigation of the reasons for
such a sharp hostility and for the primary source of such extremism in this
Indeed, the main issue that investigators and courts must establish is
the following – do the negative assessments about Jewry by Russian patriots
correspond to the truth of the matter concerning the negative assessments?
If there is no truth to it, then yes one can say that the Jews are being
humiliated and that there is incitement to religious and ethnic strife. If
there is truth to it, however, then such (negative) assessments are justified
and, regardless of their emotionality, they cannot be considered as humiliating,
inciting to (ethnic) strife, etc. (For instance, calling a decent person
a criminal – is humiliating for him; but, calling a convicted felon a criminal
– is a true statement of fact.)
Moreover, since in the ethnic conflict at hand there are two parties (the
accusers and the accused), one must establish: Which side began this conflict
first and is responsible for it, and is it possible that actions on the part
of the accused are a self-defense against the aggressive acts of the accusing
We take the liberty to assure you, Mr. Attorney General, that, concerning
this issue, there exists throughout the whole world a large amount of widely
recognized facts and sources, on the basis of which one can draw the following
conclusion: Negative assessments by Russian patriots about acts, typical
for the Jews, against non-Jews are based on truth. Furthermore, these acts
do not happen by chance, but are prescribed by the Judaic Talmud and have
been practiced for two thousand years. Consequently, statements and publications
against the Jews attributed to patriots, in the majority of cases constitute
self-defense which may not always be stylistically proper, but is justified
in its essence.
To prove this point, we wish to bring to your attention a book entitled
“Kitsur Shulhan Aruh”, officially published in Moscow by the Congress of
Jewish Religious Organizations and Associations in Russia (“CJROAR), which
was printed more than once. This is a shortened edition of the code of laws
known as “Shulhan Aruh,” compiled several centuries ago on the basis of “the
Talmud”, and whose prescriptions must be still obeyed today. In the preface
to the 1999 and 2000 editions, the head of the CJROAR Executive Committee,
Rabbi Zinovii Kogan, makes a candid admission (italics added):
“The Editorial Board of the CJROAR deemed it necessary to omit in this
translation certain Halachic directives…, the inclusion of which in a Russian-language
edition could be perceived by the inhabitants of Russia who do not observe
Judaism as unprovoked insults. A reader, who wishes to read the full text
of “Kitsur Shulhan Aruh” is invited to come to a yeshiva to study this and
many other holy books in their original form”.
In other words, one of the leaders of the Russian Jewry views as insulting
for non-Jewish population of Russia certain provisions of this Jewish code
of behavior, yet feels it appropriate to invite his tribesmen to study these
insults in yeshivas – Jewish schools financed to some extent from federal
and local budgets. But even in this censored version we find the following
• In the “Laws about idolatry,” it is stated that a “figure made from two
crossed sticks that is used to worship is banned for usage” – i.e. Christianity
is viewed as idolatry and all provisions defining relations with idolaters
(“acums”) imply in Russia (a country with the majority confessing Orthodoxy)
by and large Orthodox Christians (p. 389).
• A directive for one who comes upon a heathen temple (e.g. a church) to say a
curse: “The house of arrogant will be destroyed by G-d.” When one sees a demolished
church, one should exclaim: “G-d of retribution has acted!” Moreover, there is
another interpretation of this provision: “Some feel that this should be understood
as houses of non-Jews living in peace, calm and wealth (pp. 389-390).
• Equating non-Jews with excrements (pp. 47, 48).
• Prohibition of instructing non-Jews in trades (p. 390).
• “A Jewess should not aid a non-Jewess during birth giving”, except in cases when
this would serve “not to provoke animosity toward us… and strictly for pay” (p.
• “If a person borrows from a non-Jew, who subsequently passes away, he has the
right to refuse payment to his son who is not sure whether or not his father loaned
money to this Jew” (p. 405).
• In money matters, if a non-Jew made an error, it is permitted to profit by the
error” (p. 406).
• “It is forbidden to hand over a Jew into the hands of a non-Jew, regardless whether
or not the life of the Jew is involved or his property; and it is immaterial if
this is done by some act or word; and it is forbidden to denounce him or point
out places where his property is hidden” (p. 408) – we emphatically ask that a
special note is made of this: this pertains to the prescribed behavior for Jews
during an investigation and in a court of law.
• Of course, among the 13 main principles of Judaism is the expectation the Jewish
world leader who will install the Jews to rule over other nations of the world:
“I unconditionally believe in the coming of Moshiakh and, while he is being delayed,
I will nevertheless continue to expect him every day” (p. 485). In the teachings
of the Orthodox Church, this expected world ruler is equated with Antichrist about
whom we have been warned by Jesus Christ (John 5:43), Apostle Paul (Thess. 2:8),
and holy fathers of the Church. This is an important and inseparable part of the
Orthodox teaching of the end of the world.
In the introduction to this book, the head of the Executive Committee of
CJROAR, Kogan, writes that “Talmud is the unsurpassed memorial of Jewish
genius” and that this extract from its morals, “Kitsur Shulhan Aruh” – “is
the reading book of Jewish civilization of our times… This book is absolutely
necessary for you. You may act as prescribed in it and be certain that you
fulfilled the will of the M-st High.”
In addition, the head rabbi of Russia A. Shaevich remarks in the introduction:
“Interest in this book surpassed our wildest expectations. A huge number
of thankful responses from completely different individuals come to us all
the time. Even more letters contain emphatic requests to help in acquiring
Consequently, this is not a historical memorial, but a guide for action.
We would hope that on the basis of this one official Jewish book alone
law enforcement agencies would have to, according to Article 282 of the RF
Criminal Code, suppress the proliferation of a religion that incites hatred
among Jewry toward all others in Russia. Particularly if one peruses the
“ideally complete memorial to the Jewish morals” – “Shulhan Aruh” that is
being studied in yeshivas.
Let us utilize some of its translations from the Hebrew Amsterdam edition
prepared by a court expert, a scientist of Hebrew, Dr. K. Ecker, for a trial
in Germany in 1893 (Dr. K. Ecker. Der “Judenspeigel” im Lichte der Wahrheit,
-- eine wisentschafliche Untersuchung. Paderborn. 1884; a Russian version:
Dr. K. Ecker. “The Jewish mirror” in the light of truth. A scientific study.
Moscow., 1906). These court proceedings were initiated by Jews because one
of their tribesmen who converted to Christianity (Ustus-Briman) published
inhuman laws of “Shulhan Aruh” and Talmud. However, the court acquitted the
publisher since it determined that the translation corresponded to the original.
Dr. Ecker corrected some minor errors – we will cite some examples corrected
by him below in typical excerpts with precise references to Jewish sources
(being confident in the qualifications of the German expert in Hebrew and
the German court).
• “His (a non-Jew's) semen is viewed as semen of an animal” (Tosefta --
a supplement to the Talmud Ketubot, 3b). “When a male or female servant passes
away… one should not offer condolences to those who remain, but one should
say to him (the Jew-owner): ‘Let G-d compensate your loss,' exactly what
one would say to a person whose ox or a donkey died (Iore de'a 377-1).
• “It is forbidden to save them (non-Jews-acums) when they are near death. For
instance, if you see that one of them fell into the sea, don't attempt to rescue
him, even if he is willing to pay… It is permitted to test drugs on an acum to
find out if it works?” (Iore de'a 158-1)
• “An acum's money is ownerless property and anyone who comes first, may take possession.”
“In relation to an acum, there is no such thing as deceit” (Hoshen ga-mishpat 165-5,
Haga; 227-26; 348-2, Haga).
• “When a Jew robs an acum and he (the Jew) is being forced to take oath,… he should
in his heart pronounce the oath invalid because he is being forced to take it (Iore
de'a 329-1, Haga). – Attention: this again relates to behavior of Jews during investigations
• “When it is established about someone that he thrice handed over a Jew or his
money to an acum, then ways and means must be found to cause his death.” “Expenses
incurred while causing death of a traitor must be born by all members of the community”
(Hoshen ga-mishpat 388-15 and -16).
• “A traitor must be killed anywhere, even in our times. It is permitted to kill
him before he submits his report (that can cause a loss ‘either bodily or financial,
even if the sum is not large')… and the first one who kills him earns a merit”
(Hoshen ga-mishpat 388-10).
• “A free-thinker Jew, i.e. he who conducts religious services of acums… murdering
such – is a good deed. When it is possible to kill them publicly by a sword, so
be it; if not, they must be trapped in every way possible to cause their death.
For instance, if you see that one of them fell into a well and in the well there
is a ladder, hurry to pull the ladder up while saying: ‘I have a problem – I need
to take my son off a roof, I'll bring the ladder back right away' and so forth.”
(Hoshen ga-mishpat 425-5).
All these statements whose accuracy has been proven (which is important!)
in a German court, are corroborated by a group of modern-day rabbis and yeshiva
students who protest this racist morality. For instance, an Israeli writer,
I. Shamir, has published in the journal “Nash sovremennik” (“Our contemporary”),
2004, No. 11, the following currently valid provisions against which these
conscientious Jews are protesting (also see the web site http://www.talkreason.org/articles/gentiles.cfm):
• “The Jews are fully-fledged, perfect beings; non-Jews, on the other hand,
while are human, are neither full-fledged not perfect. The difference between
the Jews and other peoples is similar to a difference between a body and
soul or the difference between humans and animals… The difference between
the soul of a Jew and that of a non-Jew is greater, deeper, and more significant
than the difference between a soul of an animal and a human.”
• “The prohibition to feel hate toward another human being refers exclusively to
Jews… The Jewish law allows vindictiveness and rancor toward non-Jews.”
• “Every idolater (both Jew and non-Jew)
To all this one might add the words from the prayer Shefokh in which the Jews before
the feast of Passover call upon their “god” to “exterminate from the universe”
all other nations.
We greatly appreciate the fact that in our rejection of this Judaic hatred
of mankind we stand together with most honest representatives of the Jewish
nation. Such as citizens of Israel Israel Shahak from the Jerusalem University
and Israel Shamir, who denounce the morality of “Shulhan Aruh” both in the
Talmudic theory and in the government practice of Jewish administration in
relation to the Palestinians (also see I. Shamir's publication in the journal
“Nash sovremennik,” 2003, No. 10).
Let us note that the murderous provisions cited above – are not theoretical
to this day, but an accepted practice. Thus, former chairman of the Jewish
community in Charkov E. Hodos published a proof (An ax over Orthodoxy, or
Who killed Fr. Men',” Charkov, 1999) that blames members of Jewish movement
Habad in the 1990 murder of a Jew-priest Alexander Men' (who “conducted religious
services of acums” and dreamed about the establishment of a “Jewish Orthodox
church” which is considered a crime according to the laws of Israel). RF
leaders, however, disregarded this evidence: They were looking for the guilty
strictly among “Russian anti-Semites.”
Upholders of the “Shulhan Aruh” morality are not surprised by the fact
that numerous anti-Jewish acts throughout the world are staged by Jews themselves
as provocations – to create a reason for the persecution against patriots.
The best known incident in Russia is the Norinsky case who in 1988 mailed
threats to Jews in the name of the “Pamiat'” organization, so that the government
would initiate some repressions against it; he was aided in this by editor-in-chief
of journal “Znamia” G. Baklanov, a tribesman of his, who published 500,000
copies of this flyer. Only after this the provocation was exposed (“Znamia”
No. 10, 1988; “Pravda,” 11.19.88; “Komsomol'skaia Pravda,” 11.24.88; “Ogonek”
No. 9, 1989). Among the most recent events one can mention a strange series
of acts of vandalism in 1998-1999: on May 13, 1998, there was an explosion
in the synagogue in the Mar'ina roshcha (a wall was damaged); on the same
day, not far from a synagogue in Otradnoe, a “burning gasoline can was found,”
while in Irkutsk a “Jewish cemetery was vandalized.” As to be expected, there
was a loud noise in the world's media, and everything was – without proof
-- blamed on some “Russian nationalists” (“Independent newspaper,” 5.15.98).
But when, soon after this, in 1999, there was a synagogue devastated in Birobidzhan,
and a court established that it was done by a person hired by the Jews themselves
(“Radonezh,” 1999, Nos. 15-16) – the democratic media ignored the event.
On the basis of the cited rules and practice of Jewish behavior, it is
not difficult to understand why a constant companion of Jewry among all nations
has been the notorious “anti-Semitism” – e.g. the non-acceptance of the Judaic
morality. Precisely for this reason the Jews had no equal rights in Christian
countries and gained them only after bourgeois revolutions that overthrew
traditional authority. The same took place in the Russian Empire where the
Jews, after unsuccessful attempts of the tsarist government to make them
“the same as everybody else,” lost equal rights in the XIX century. Not because
they were Jews by blood (the empire was a multiethnic country); and not because
they were non-Christian (there were other non-Christians – Moslems, Buddhists
etc,); but because Jewish religion is anti-Christian and man-hating, extending
to ritual murders among their extremely zealous adepts. Numerous cases of
such ritual extremism were also proven in a court of law (see, for instance,
a study conducted by the pre-revolutionary Ministry of Internal Affairs:
V. I. Dal'. “An investigation concerning murders of Christian babies by the
Jews and the usage of their blood,” St.-Petersburg, 1844).
The spiritual cause of this man-hatred is explained in the New Testament
by Christ speaking about Jewish spiritual leaders who rejected God Father
and therefore rejected and crucified God's Son: “Ye are of your father the
devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do; he was a murderer from the
beginning” (John 8:19, 44). This is the widely accepted by the Orthodox explanation
of Judaic aggressiveness as a form of Satanism. It was used by well-known
philosopher members of intelligentsia who could not possibly be suspect of
anti-Semitism. For instance, A. F. Losev (Istochnik. M.? 1196, No. 4. p.
117-122), Fr. Paul Florensky (see in the book: V. V. Rozanov. “Sakharna,”
M., published by “Respublika,” 1998, p. 360) and Fr. Segiy Bulgakov: Jewry,
which rejected Chrict, became a “laboratory of all kinds of spiritual perversions,
poisoning the world and particularly the Christian mankind” (“Vestnik RKhD”.
Paris. 1973, No. 108-110, p. 72). Even a Judeo-Christian Fr. Alexander Men',
who fought against “anti-Semitism,” maintained that a Jew, who rejects Christianity,
“betrays himself and easily finds himself under the power of forces of darkness”
(journal “Evrei in USSR,” 1975, No. 11).
This, unfortunately, happened with the majority of the Jewish people (as
opposed by its lesser part who converted to Christianity). But overall, they
don't want to admit this and feel that statement of truth by Christ and,
after Him, by Orthodox Christians, is “insulting” to the Jews. Jewish plaintiffs
frequently direct their accusations in “anti-Semitism” against this essential
part of the Orthodox teachings, demanding that it be banned (as in the case
with the textbook “The bases of the Orthodox Culture).
However, we cannot accept a ban on Orthodox knowledge of the meaning of
history as a struggle of Good (on the side of Church) and Evil (on the side
of the opposing religion, that readies the rule of Antichrist).
Following behests of Orthodox Church Fathers, neither can we follow the
disseminating false understanding of tolerance as humility before sin, evil,
lies and, in this case, a struggle against God. A Christian must, precisely
because of the likeness of God implanted into every human being, and for
the sake of saving one's soul, point out to the Jews their dangerous deviation
from the truth. In this, from a Christian point of view, is the expression
of true love to men, because only the conversion into true Christian faith
can save a Jew. A “tolerant” indulgence for the Jews and Satanism will only
enhance their spiritual ruin. And due to their onslaught – many of their
One should immediately respond to a possible objection that Russian patriots
blaming the Jews, not always distinguish between religious and non-religious
Jews, while the majority of them do not view themselves as believing Jews
and don't study “ Shulhan Aruh.” However, many generations of isolated existence
of Jewry among other nations (here lies the meaning of Jewish kagal as “a
state within state” – see books by Jewish authors: “Anti-Semitism in the
Ancient world” by S. Lour'e and “The book of kagal” by Ia. Brafman) resulted
in a situation where the moral of “Shulkhan Aruh” became a part of the Jewish
national self conscience even in its secular form. The following conclusion
was made by a known Jewish writer-sociologist X. Arendt:
“Fully realistic Jewish chauvinism was born precisely in the process of
secularization… The vision of the supremacy of the Jews transformed… into
a vision that the Jews are the salt of Earth. From this time on, the old
religious concept of the supremacy ceases to be the essence of Judaism and
becomes the essence of the Jewry” (“Anti-Semitism//Syntaxes,” Paris, No.
This “realistic Jewish chauvinism” and unceremonious attitude in the spirit
of “Shulkhan Aruh” clearly expressed themselves during the terrible genocide
against the Russian orthodox people during the 1920-1930s (which suggests
that the Jews should be particularly restrained in their accusations against
Russian patriots), as well as during the downfall of the Soviet Union and
the post-Communist reforms in our country that brought about an unlawful
appropriations of state property as “ownerless” and in the makeup of the
new ruling class: “ there are numerous Jews in the government” – proudly
proclaims rabbi A. Shaevich (“Independent gazette,” “Figures and faces,”
1998, No. 16). Consequently, their corresponding influence upon the nation's
life turned out to be completely out of proportion to their numbers (0.16%
according to the latest census) which is detrimental to the interests of
all other people of the land, particularly the Russians who are the main
stay of the country.
A known Jewish journalist, L. Radzikhovsky, calls this a “democratic-capitalistic
revolution… Jewish and near-Jewish intelligentsia in Russia, that has been
one of the main carriers of western-liberal ideology, became the ideologue
of this revolution.” Therefore, “the Jews have a greater specific gravity
in Russian politics and business than in politics and business in any other
Christian country.” Radzikhovsky calls this “Luck of the Jews” and this is
the headline of his article (“Novoye Russkoye Slovo,” 1.17.96).
Jewish oligarchs themselves openly explained on an Israel TV (2nd program,
10.3.96) about the sources of this “luck” in the revolution that they staged
(italic emphasis added):
“The degree of corruption in Russia entirely corresponds to the degree
of transformations in Russia. I don't think that Israel official… have such
opportunity to redistribute wealth costing tens, hundreds millions and billions…
all this was ownerless, all this belonged to the state, all this belonged
to everyone! A government official could decide with a stroke of a pen whether
or not this belongs to you or someone else… A good fight which produced the
result we have today” (Berezovsky). “Such income and such profits that could
be earned in Russia could not be earned anywhere else… The greater part of
capital there, 50%, belongs to the Jewish business” (Malkin, today a member
of the Presidium of the Russian Jewish Congress). Gusinsky, the first chairman
of the Russian Jewish Congress (RJC), during that TV program listed among
the reasons for such Jewish luck the following – “toughness,” “fewer rules,
more rules of force, more rules of aggression.”
Let us also not forget that Gusinsky, while heading the RJC, was accused
of financial crimes, after which he disappeared with the stolen moneys to
Israel. His successor in this position, Nevzlin, went into hiding to the
same place, after he was accused of complicity in murdering his competitors.
And these people were chosen by the Jewry to be their leaders, while the
international Jewry protected them from a trial in every way by crying about
“state anti-Semitism!” Think how many similar criminals are continuing their
“good fight” -- for power in Russia, in the final analysis.
“For the first time in thousand years from the time of settlement of Jews
in Russia we obtained real power in this country,” states another Jewish
journalist, E. Topol', in his “Open letter to Berezovsky, Gusinsky, Smolensky,
Khodorkovsky and other oligarchs” (Argumenty I Fakty,” 1998, No. 38). Here
Topol' and other sensitive Jews (for instance, Iu. Nudel'man – see “Sovetskaia
Rossia,” 6.20.02) underscore that destructive and selfish polity of Jewish
oligarchs, humiliating the Russian people, provokes animosity of the Russian
people to the Jews.
We are asking the office of Attorney General to take into account this
opinion of Topol' and Nudel'man as the admission of responsibility by the
Jewish side for today's heightening of the Russian-Jewish conflict.
Furthermore, in order to retain unlawfully appropriated “ownerless” state
property and their power, this ruling class is conducting a purposeful policy
of degradation of people's morals and the destruction of spiritual values,
aiming to convert the people into an animal mass without faith and traditions
– this to make it easier to rule over it and to suppress it's resistance.
In this, one can see obvious signs of spiritual genocide of our nation.
Case in point: It was precisely the Jews who staged a fierce resistance
to the teaching in schools of “The bases of Orthodox culture,” and precisely
due to the Jewish initiative we, the state-forming Russian people, are forbidden
to indicate our nationality in a passport. The head RF rabbi Shaevich, in
an interview to “The Los-Angeles Times,” confirmed that it was the Jews who
insisted that the line for indicating nationality in a passport be removed.
As the reason for this position, he stated that the “Jews have taken over
high posts within the administration (www.portal-credo.ru/site/print.php?act=rating&id=21).
In other words, they themselves realize what impression about their nationality
people have and therefore are trying to hide it – this speaks for itself.
Among other numerous examples of destroying spiritual values we would like
to turn your attention, Mr. Attorney General, to the policy of the minister
of culture, Shvydky, (he is now in charge of the state committee for cultural
affairs) and particularly at his TV program “The cultural revolution.” In
this program, the Russian patriotism and Orthodox traditions are regularly
humiliated, promoted are four-letter words and the idea that “Sex is the
engine of culture” (3.7.02). All protests of the Russian community against
this disgraceful, essentially provocative activity of this “head of the culture
of the land” remain unsuccessful.
Furthermore, Shvydky and his colleagues have at their disposal major channels
of the Russian TV, while Russian Orthodox patriots who are trying to defend
themselves have only newspapers with negligible circulations for which they
are being persecuted and tried – this inequality in means also involuntarily
may lead to excessive emotionality, particularly in cases when they are trying
to beat back blasphemous and insolent acts of persons of Jewish origin. However,
such emotionality of cornered defending side should not be confused with
the aggressive emotionality of the attacking side. For an Orthodox person,
aggression is unthinkable, however he is called upon to fight for his people
and his sacred objects – an example for this was set by Christ Himself when
he chased disrespectful sellers from the Temple with a horsewhip.
Statements by the Jews directed at non-Jews that are published in Jewish
newspapers printed in the RF are considerably more aggressive than statements
of accused Russian patriots. For instance, in the official newspaper of the
Russian Jewish Congress titled “Evreiskie novosti” (Jewish news, 2002, No.
16, p. 9) Knesset deputy A. Liberman proposed forced removal of Palestinians
from Israel. Note that the Palestinians – in disregard of resolution of the
UN's Security Council – are not simply being evicted from their homeland
(4 million refugees), but their activists and their families are being murdered,
and homes of their relatives are demolished; this is how “Shulhan Aruh” is
implemented in the state policy of Israel. Yet the RF Jewry supports it:
The Russian Jewish Congress, in a list of their goals, announced that it
“conducts acts of solidarity with the people of Israel and political lobbying
of Israel's interests” (Jewish news, 2002, No. 15, p. 5). This goal is also
being pursued by the State Institute for Israel and Near-East Studies whose
leader, Satanovsky, simultaneously heads the Russian Jewish Congress.
Jewish communities in all countries are engaged in “political lobbying”
of interests of the international Jewry at the expense of interests of countries
where they live, especially the United States – this nation became an instrument
for achieving global goals of Jewry, which was openly recognized by A. Sharon
in Knesset in 2001. The Jews even managed to use the U.S. Army in Israel's
interests to destroy an entire country – Iraq. Yet they are trying to camouflage
racism of their “Shulhan Aruh” by preventive accusations in “anti-Semitism”
(e.g., supposedly racial hatred) of all those who do not agree with their
morality, their acts, their wars. Such substitution of concepts is grossly
fraudulent which should be obvious to any objective judge. For instance,
the “Moscow Bureau for Human Rights,” led by A. Brod, overwhelmed the Attorney
General's office with such “anti-Semitic” complaints, essentially blocking
the work of law enforcement agencies and demonstrating, in the process, that
they understand the term “human rights” as primarily rights of the Jews.
It can be said, that the entire democratic world today finds itself under
the financial and political control of the international Jewry, which serves
as a source of open pride to some influential bankers (J. Attali and others).
And we don't want to see our Russia, against the rebirth of which there is
being waged an ongoing permanent preventive war without rules, among these
nations with no freedom.
Accordingly, we, both in the interests of protection of our Fatherland,
as well as for the sake of personal self-defense, wish to submit to you,
Mr. Attorney General, the following specific (items 1-4), based upon RF laws,
requests aimed at suppressing both the theory and practice of this kind of
1. To investigate the fact of official printing in Moscow, in Russian,
by the Congress of Jewish Religious Organizations and Associations in Russia
(business address: 101000 Moscow, B. Spasoglinishchevsky per., 10, str. 1)
a Judaic set of rules of conduct “Kitsur Shulhan Aruh” that contains in its
1999 and 2001 editions directions for hating non-Jews. Please note, that
this is not simply an ancient historical text, but rather a guide for action
in our times, which is underscored by the head of the Executive Committee
the CJROAR rabbi Z. Kogan in the book's preface, while the head rabbi for
Russia A. Shaevich testifies in the same preface about the large popularity
of this book among today's Russian Jewry. In Moscow this book was distributed
in numerous Jewish book stores (for instance, at the School of Journalism
of Moscow State University) and, of course, in synagogues. Quite recently,
in 2004, it was on sale at the book store of a synagogue at the CJROAR's
address given above.
If the book becomes identified as extremist, it will help expose and isolate
one of the major sources of primary extremism in Russia that sometimes gives
rise to responsive extremism. This, however, should be only the first step.
For eradicating this type of extremism, one must eliminate its deeper causes.
2. To this end, we are asking that you investigate the fact of written
admission by rabbi Z. Kogan in the book's preface that its more extreme directions,
taken out for the sake of conspiracy and characterized by Kogan himself as
insulting for non-Jews, are being taught in Jewish educational institutions
– yeshivas. Rabbi Kogan openly invites his tribesmen to visit yeshivas for
studying the insults. For an investigation, it should be sufficient to analyze
educational materials in known Moscow yeshivas, including those belonging
to the Federation of Jewish Organizations of Russia of rabbi Berl Lazar,
which is considered extremist by rabbis Kogan and Shaevich themselves, “imitating
actions of criminal structures” (Mezhdunarodnaia evreiskaia gazeta, 2005,
Nos. 7-8, p. 1). We are asking that the check of yeshivas' educational materials
is done with the participation of experts, independent interpreters specializing
in Hebrew (non-Jews), using the excerpts from the mentioned texts of “Talmud”
and “Shulhan Aruh” that were cited earlier within Dr. K. Ecker's translation
for a [German] trial.
If the check corroborates the admission by rabbi Kogan and such educational
materials be banned for usage – this will be the second important step in
overcoming the primary source of extremism. However, it should be taken into
account, that these texts constitute the foundation and essence of Judaism,
which the Jews will not denounce, even if they make additional deletions
in these books, simply transforming their cult of hatred into a verbal form
(as they have been doing this for a long time in Christian states). Therefore,
for the eradication of this source of extremism, we feel necessary the following
step – obvious measures for similarly strict observance of Russian laws,
which are applied to other extremist organizations.
3. More specifically, on the basis of Article 282 of the RF Criminal Code,
the law for “counteracting extremist activity” (2002) and Article 13-5 of
the RF Constitution (a “ban on establishment and operation of public associations
whose goals are aimed at rousing social, racial, ethnic and religious dissension”)
we request that a process be officially initiated for banning in our country
all religious and ethnic associations based on the morality of “Shulhan Aruh”
as extremist. We are also asking that individuals, responsible for providing
these associations with state and municipal property, privileges, and state
financing, be brought to justice regardless of their positions. We are also
asking to examine a question whether or not it is permissible for adherents
to such morality, after their complicity to such extremist associations has
been proven, to occupy positions of influence within the government service
and the media (“the fourth government”).
4. We are asking that the results of these verifications be taken into
account not only in current trials involving Russian patriots accused of
“anti-Semitism,” but in a review of all analogous prior sentences that were
instigated by the Jewish side to ascertain to what extent they were justified
in the light of the above statements.
Should you, Mr. Attorney General, feel that our Petition cannot be accepted
for consideration due to the fact that we did not adhere to some unknown
to us at this time formal provisions or we made some formal omissions – we
stand ready to remove these obstacles. All the signers of the Petition authorize
us, who submitted the Petition to you, to do so. But this should not serve
as a reason for rejecting our Petition as far as its subject matter is concerned.
Please reply to the address of those who submitted the Petition.
A copy of the Petition is being sent to the State Duma, asking them to
submit a deputy inquiry concerning items 1-4 presented above.
March 7/20, 2005
The Triumph of Orthodoxy
A necessary postscript
A preliminary version of our Petition, for the purpose of discussing it
and collecting signatures, was posted on Dec. 15, 2004 at several web sites
(in some cases modified by their editors) and soon was endorsed by 20 deputies
of the State Duma (for which we are thankful to them in spite of certain
misunderstandings that followed). After one month after its first publication,
in January 2005, an artificially associated with the anniversary of Osventsim
world-wide (literally!) campaign against signers of the Petition as “Nazi-provocateurs”
has been unleashed with demands that WE be punished for “the incitement of
ethnic strife,” rather than publishers and teachers of “Shulhan Aruh.” The
Moscow Bureau for Human Rights and the Russian Jewish Congress filed corresponding
complaints to the Attorney General's office. Our Petition was not published
in the media – there were only unsubstantiated accusations in “anti-Semitism”
and “provocation,” while interviews with signers would be distorted. Under
the pressure of this campaign we were judged guilty without any substantiation
and numerous representatives of the RF government exerted some pressure as
well. Some signers were subjected to a pressure from certain government offices
– and all this without any investigation or court examination and even without
an analysis of the Petition by the Attorney General's office! We view these
assaults as slander and actions by the authorities as unlawful.
We can thank all these Jewish forces and those under their control, since
they graphically demonstrated dishonesty of their method of accusations in
“anti-Semitism” – with the obvious intent to camouflage the essence of the
problem, just as we pointed out in our Petition. This reaction once again
confirms our warning about the huge influence of international Jewry within
the mass media and power structures in our country, which is unacceptable
to the sense of our civil duty and our conscience.
Also worthy of note is the fact that during these weeks Mr. Shvydkoy and
M. Gelman with impunity demonstrated another sample of mockery by bearers
of this morality about Russian Culture and Orthodoxy – organized by them
at government's expense exhibit titled “Russia-2” that included a number
of blasphemous “works of art” (ask a sample from the TV program “Russky vzgliad”,
2.27.05). We join the protests of the Russian community demanding a full
investigation of this anti-Russian extremism and, finally, bring the highly-placed
blasphemers to justice!
We were not striving to maximize the number of signatures under the Petition,
because their amount is not what matters. Nevertheless, we suppose that millions
of our countrymen, including not only Russians and Orthodox, but representatives
of other ethnic groups and confessions, would add their signatures to ours
if they had the opportunity (this became obvious, for instance, by voting
during the TV program “K bar'eru”, NTV, Feb. 3, 2005). We are aware that
many sent letters to the Attorney General's office in support of the Petition.
In some cities ad-hoc groups submitted similar Petitions to local law enforcement
agencies concerning the activities of local organizations based upon the
morality of “Shulhan Aruh.” We are hoping that these spreading protests will
also be accepted by the Attorney General for processing and will enhance
the self-organization of our people for defense.
Accordingly, we feel that the first objective of our Petition has been
achieved: The issue concerning the self-incriminating, man-hating morality
of “Shulhan Aruh” is no longer under a taboo, and there is an opportunity
for publicly discussing it. The attitude toward this issue on the part of
various authorities, politicians, public and religious activists clearly
defines the front line in the present battle waged against Russia: Who stands
up for the interests of our people and who is ready to betray them because
of “the fear of the Jews.” We are hoping that in law enforcement structures
there are honest individuals who are capable to perform their civic duty
and will take up a position for which they will not be ashamed before their
people and God.
