AMSHINOV- no quarter asked,no quarter given

Think of me as perpetual Shil'shel Peh

Thursday, January 12, 2006


MOSCOW -- A knife-wielding man shouting ''I will kill Jews!'' attacked a synagogue in downtown Moscow on Wednesday, slashing and stabbing at least eight men before the son of a rabbi wrestled him to the ground.
Witnesses said the attacker yelled ''Heil Hitler! as he aimed at victims' necks, heads or torsos.
The attack at the Chabad Bronnaya synagogue came amid an increase in racist crimes and hate-group activity in Russia. Jewish leaders said it should send a message to Russian authorities and the public to fight prejudice.
Chief Moscow prosecutor Anatoly Zuyev said the suspect, a Muscovite identified as Alexander Koptsev, born in 1985, was in custody. AP

    You'll forgive me if I wonder what the "Kids today," reference means. This story speaks about a knife-wielding man who decides to kill Jews for no understandable reason; simply with the desire to "kill Jews" and salute Hitler. He was wrestled to the ground by the son of a Rabbi. Where do you see kids involved in this at all?

    On the other hand- agree wholly with your "nothing ever changes" reference, amshinover. There are strange extremists in every religion, cult or country on the planet. The only question is how extreme...

    The most striking thing about the incident is that no one from the position of authority - DA, the Mayor, etc. commented on the incident. Hmm, sure gets you thinking, doesn't it!

    It took centuries to breed this anti-semitism in Russia, and unfortunately it will take centuries, if ever, to eradicate it. Luckily, many, many Jews took the opportunity to leave russia in the 70s, 80s, and 90s.

    When I went (back) to the Ukraine about 4 years ago, I happened upon a nice size demonstration in the center of Kiev (the capital). They were chanting "Let's drown the Russians in the blood of the Jews". Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose.

    I am really tired of the uneducated or undereducated thinking they understand how things are. People like our knife-welder really . . . make me even more paranoid. It also makes me want to hurt someone. (Preferably them, something painful and linger comes to mind.)

    Is Jew-hatred a genetic trait in that part of the world?
