A bunch of Kyiv skinheads beat up a yeshiva student yesterday night - in an underground pass near the relatively fancy and relatively new mall, Mandarin Plaza, three minutes away from the synagogue and as close to my Bessarabka home.
The Jewish guy is in critical condition.
When I read about stuff like this, I can't help thinking of the 9-year-old Tajik girl killed by skinheads around the corner from where we lived in St. Pete, back in 2004. I still can't get over it.
I hate them so much.
The Haaretz reports that our police do not think the attack was motivated by anti-Semitism - and this, too, reminds me so much of Russia. The irony, of course, is that we Ukrainians like to believe that we are so different, so incomparably better than the Russians... Right.
In the Haaretz Talkback section, someone calls the Israelis to boycott Chicken Kiev.
Another guy doesn't have the brains to read past the headline and accuses the Haaretz of being anti-Semitic:
Your heading to this attack in the Ukraine is a joke - yes?????? If not anti semitism than what do you bright sparks at Haaretz call it - I would really like to know. Your paper gets more and more unbelievable. Your hatred of your fellow Jew is so rotten, and you go on and on and on ....................................
The headline, of course, reflects the view of our glorious police, not that of the newspaper (Ukraine: Attack on yeshiva men not motivated by anti-Semitism).
Finally, at least one person over there seems to think that the drunk skinhead jerks have been following the news of the disengagement drama:
These skinheads are just following Sharons example.
If Jews expel Jews from their homes why can`t we?
If Jews can destroy Jewish synagogues why can`t we?
If Jews can remove Jewish graves why can`t we graffiti them?
If Jews can arrest 13 year old girls for months without charges, why can`t we beat them?
These are questions we must think about before blaming the Ukranians.
I don't know why I'm reading this trash...
