The Jewish community written complaint Rogozin

June 23 2005

Today the chairman of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia (FJC) Alexander Beard and executive director Valery Engel held a press conference. Ea theme was the filing party Rodina applications to join the Socialist International, the European left-liberal alliance, rooted in the history of the international communist movement of the twentieth century.

"Ladies and gentlemen! Appeal to you we are forced to disturbing facts in the activities of Russia's Rodina party, positioning itself as a "social-patriotic opposition" and stated his desire to join the Socialist International, "- says the official handling the Russian Jewish community to the leadership of the Socialist International. - In our country, this newly formed party "famous" primarily to the fact that a number of its prominent members openly trying to play antesemitskuyu card to suit their personal and political ambitions of the group - said on the complaint. - The most notable political act "Homeland" - is the infamous "Letter 19, and" the Prosecutor General, calling for a ban on all Jewish organizations. Of the signatory and 19 deputies of the Russian parliament in 1914 belong to a faction of the Rodina.

Recall "letter" came to light in winter, one of its main sponsors was the publicist Mikhail Nazarov. He has recently once again become famous, suggesting that the Krasnoyarsk students whose charred bodies were found in the heating, fell victim of Jewish ritual murder. Well, PR requires sacrifice, that's just like a man, declaring its strictly inchurched, had the conscience to speculate on such facts? ..

But back to the "Letters". Work of its authors are not left unattended. On the "Letter" with a hint of bitterness in his voice referred to President Putin, speaking at a large European summit. "The conceptual separation" of the document gave a well-known in conservative circles and church worker of the Moscow Patriarchate, Vladimir Semenko, speaking on web-page of the Orthodox radio Radonezh that under the most difficult to catch the imagination to be sympathetic to Jews and Judaism.

And today, entitled "Letters" developed at a press conference at the Moscow Jewish community center leaders of Jewish Communities in Russia.

They were saying things from the Jews to hear the familiar. That in periods of large-scale national disasters anti-Semitism is a proven way to attract "humiliated and insulted" under his banner. That people who practice such things are the political profiteers. That anti-Semitism is not confined to Russia. And so on.

Much more interesting was to listen to what feelings Jewish leaders have for the party fraction "Motherland" and specifically its leader, Dmitry Rogozin. They feel puzzled. I understand from their remarks, personal Rogozin from Jewish leaders fear and dislike does not cause. Their anxiety caused by the fact that the rhetoric of "homeland" is present "vector" in the direction of xenophobia and antisemitism, as evidenced by the "Letter-19. Jewish leaders are impressed by the position of the presidential administration, condemned the "Letter". And it is not clear why the same did not Rogozin, formally responsible for the words and actions of subordinates. In correspondence with Rabbi Berel Lazar Rogozin, according to the guidelines FJC, left on the answer to a clear and simple question: how he personally relates to the "Letters" and its authors.

st the leadership of FJC and questions to the leaders of the Socialist International, is currently considering an application Rodina party to join the ranks of the international left-liberal organizations, is a member of Israel (and the Vice-Chairman - Vice-Premier Shimon Peres).

With claims of Jewish organizations in Russia to the Socialist International's hard to disagree. In fact, the West is left are the most consistent and emotional defenders of minorities - sexual, racial, religious, national, among whom the Jews take pride of place.

With regard to Rogozin, it is something just is not hard to understand. He, of course, want to get the support of influential international organization. And yet to win over the Russian nationalist electorate - who refuse extra votes in the election? Even to attract those votes must reluctantly agree with the party comrades that accidents Krasnoyarsk boys ritually slain Siberian Jews. But attempts to sit on two chairs often ends with the trickster sits strictly between them. And gets slightly injured soft places.
