MOSCOW - Edward Topol's novels have been read by audiences all over the
world. Now a letter that the Russian Jewish emigre has published in a newspaper
here has outraged Russian Jews.
The full-page letter, which was printed last month in the Moscow weekly
Argumenty i Fakty, called on Russian Jewish bankers not to
throw Russia into a "chaos of poverty and wars." Topol, who
emigrated to the United States 20 years ago and now lives in New
York, also urged Jewish tycoons to "chip in a billion or two"
to help Russia's economy.
The weekly's popularity - it has a print run of more than 3 million copies
and is especially popular in Russia's provinces - has prompted worries
about how the letter will be interpreted by the paper's readers. Many
Jews said the letter implied that a Jewish conspiracy exists in Russia, and
they are worried that it could therefore trigger an outbreak of anti-Semitism.
"The article made me feel very uneasy," said Lydia Tseitlina, an
accountant. "All my Jewish friends were
"Those Jews who are active in business and politics act not as Jews but as
Russians. Topol's letter provocatively alludes to the existence of some
Jewish plan, and that is why it is very dangerous," said Mikhail
Chlenov, president of the Va'ad, the Jewish Federation of Russia.
In the letter, Topol implied that a small group of Jewish
business magnates exert an enormous control over the Kremlin. The
59-year-old author also claimed that the Jewish prominence in Russia could lead
to Jewish pogroms and even to a new Holocaust.
Oh noooooooooooo just like Maraka
One Jewish leader said he did not expect a Jewish author to write such a letter.
"I would rather expect such an article from Anpilov or from Zhirinovsky,"
said Moscow Chief Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt, (Chabad
Loobervischer) referring to Viktor Anpilov, the leader of the leftist
group Working Russia, who is known for his anti-Semitism, and to Vladimir
Zhirinovsky, the head of the ultranationalist Liberal Democratic Party.
During the Soviet regime, Topol's books were banned, but he gained international
fame for a novel he published that focused on Soviet corruption. After the fall
of communism, he became famous throughout Russia. Some 15 of his novels have
been published here.
Many of Topol's novels have Jewish characters. Among the villains in his 1997
novel, "China Lane," is a character based on Boris Berezovsky, a
Jewish media and oil tycoon who is influential in Russian politics. Berezovsky -
along with Vladimir Goussinsky, a media baron and
president of the Russian Jewish Congress, and other top Jewish bankers -
was among the people to whom Topol addressed his letter.
"It is true that the number of Jews in the business
and financial spheres are higher than their proportion in the population," said
Goldschmidt. "But to say that all the banks are controlled by Jews is

Topol said this week that he only wanted to mobilize Jewish tycoons for the
"sake of saving Russia."

Jan 16 (Reuters) - Russia on Tuesday said it had received information from
foreign sources (Talmudic Joos) which suggested terrorists were planning
to strike a Russian public transport system.
News agencies quoted the boss of Russia's FSB spy service and head of the
government's anti-terror committee, Nikolai Patrushev, telling all citizens
and officials to be on high alert.
"The Federal Anti-Terrorist Committee (Der
Homeladt Saykurity branch) has received information from foreign
partners, which is now being checked, on a possible terrorist attack on
transport systems and the metro," Patrushev said through Russian news
He said he had ordered search operations and preventative action.
Chechen separatists have fought two wars against Russia since 1994. In the
past few years, they have attacked Moscow's metro and concert venues and taken
hundreds of prisoners in a theatre siege in the centre of Russia's capital and
at a school in Beslan, in the southern Russian republic of North Ossetia.

Russian Jewish banker charged in murder
A Russian Jewish banker was charged for his alleged role in the murder of the
Russian Central Bank’s deputy governor.
Alexei Frenkel, head of VIP Bank, was detained Jan. 11.
A Moscow court formally approved his arrest Monday and denied bail.
Investigators said Frenkel had a motive to order the death of Andrei Kozlov,
who reportedly presided over revoking licenses from several banks in which
Frenkel had an interest.
Some observers questioned the arrest, saying Frenkel had no more motive than
the heads of many other Russian banks whose licenses had been revoked in recent
Kozlov, who led a crusade against money laundering in Russia’s secretive
banking system, was shot in Moscow in September.

Students listen to a lecture
given through the Nefesh Yehudi program in Vienna.
Making an offer they
College kids paid to study Judaism
January 16, 2007
VIENNA, Jan. 16 (JTA) — Every Sunday and Monday evening, some 90 Jewish
university students in Vienna get paid to learn about Judaism from the Orthodox
At first glance the Nefesh Yehudi, literally Jewish soul, program launched by
Rabbi Nechemia Rotenberg sounds suspiciously like a bribe.
Paying students to attend religious classes? Is that kosher?
Running around his office trailed by several Chasidim helping him with
Chanukah party preparations, a smiling Rotenberg is at ease with such questions.
“Most students need to do some part-time work to get through university,”
said Rotenberg, 30, a Jerusalem native who is fervently Orthodox, or haredi, but
not affiliated with any group. “So say you give them a small stipend to
replace that work? That gives them time to discover or
rediscover what being Jewish is all about.”
After attending Nefesh Yehudi lectures for four weeks, students qualify for
the $120 monthly stipend.
“Of course we know they come for the money at first, but then they keep
coming because they like the program,” Rotenberg explained.
Nefesh Yehudi was started several years ago in Israel by Orthodox Rabbi
Eliahu Ilani, according to Rotenberg.
In 2004, Ilani and philanthropist Aaron Wolfsohn of
Lawrenceville, N.Y., asked Rotenberg to start a similar program in
Rotenberg launched Nefesh Yehudi in Paris and several other French cities
before coming to Austria, his wife’s native country. He began Nefesh Yehudi
Vienna in October and, with the help of various rabbis, has brought the concept
to Budapest. Rotenberg plans to launch a program in Amsterdam this year.
In Vienna, Rotenberg receives additional financial support from the Jewish
community and Brazilian Jewish donor Elia Horn.
Nefesh Yehudi lectures and seminars are held in small but cozy premises in
the Second District, the pre-World War II heart of Jewish Vienna. Experts on
Jewish religion, culture and history present talks in English, a language all
the students understand.
On Chanukah, for instance, the principal of the Vienna Jewish community
school offered a humorous lecture on why people choose to keep kosher, poking
fun at the many scientific explanations some Jews have come up with to explain
He was followed by Austrian Chief Rabbi Paul Chaim Eisenberg, who entertained
a crowd of about 200 with his best rock-star renditions of popular Chanukah
The students then ignored instructions to clear out and wait for the buffet,
instead attacking whatever food was already on the table behind them. Perhaps
they were inspired by the kosher food lecture.
In between eating potato pancakes and brownies, students expressed enthusiasm
for more than just their stipend.
“I am from Moscow and my parents were not religious,” said 17-year-old
Evgenia Veselova, a student at Lauder Business School. “Coming here, I get to
learn about my own culture that I didn’t get at home.”
Ilena Schadler, 22, is a Viennese Jew who attended a Christian high school
because of its superior academic reputation. She now attends the University of
Vienna and has become more interested in her roots.
“I really have no Jewish education, so learning about the life of religious
Jews is very interesting for me even thought it’s never the way I would
choose,” she said.
Following the lectures, the students are separated into groups for
discussions with rabbis in Hebrew, Russian and German. At the lectures the young
men and women sit together, but in the breakout groups they are separated by
gender. Topics might include the role of women in Judaism, Talmudic lore or the
many meanings of Shabbat.
Some of the students learned of Nefesh Yehudi through an advertisement in the
Vienna Jewish community magazine, De Gemeinde.
Among the 90 students who show up regularly, 30 are native Austrians. The
rest are primarily students from Israel, Eastern Europe and the former Soviet
Union who attend the Lauder Business School. Most of the students at the Lauder
School, which is funded by philanthropist businessman Ronald Lauder, are Jewish
and can take courses in Judaism along with their business studies. Food at the
school is kosher, but men and women are not separated.
“We are now figuring out ways to getting more students from Vienna
involved,” said Tamar Ehlers, a student who acts as the Nefesh Yehudi
Rotenberg said 10,000 students are enrolled in Nefesh Yehudi worldwide, “but
the donors have money for 100,000,” he added enthusiastically.
He also runs a program for adults called Identity that he started in Vienna
Rotenberg holds three-day seminars at hotels, at discounted prices, where
mostly nonreligious Jews and their families are exposed to Orthodox views on
what it means to be Jewish.
“Plus we have magicians for the kids,” he said. “It’s fun. About 200
people are active so far.”
sounds like an Amarakan Judeo-Churchinsanity apostate
In his office Rotenberg showed off pictures of seminar attendees, many of
whom looked relaxed in shorts and T-shirts.
If all this outreach sounds like the turf of Chabad, the Jewish sect most
renowned for its work in that arena, Rotenberg says there are important
“I have no political ambitions. Chabad comes and wants to start new things;
we just want to complement what exists,” he said in a veiled reference to what
some see as Chabad competing with established Jewish communities in Europe.
“Also, I think Chabad is very good at teaching the basics. But I think we
try to go deeper,” he said.
Eisenberg’s wife attends Identity classes, and the Vienna community is
trying to have Rotenberg teach at its community school. The Zwi Perez Chajes
School, which serves from kindergarten to high school, provides a secular
education but also teaches some Judaism.
Eisenberg also has been sending Rotenberg students to prepare for bar
“We hold Identity in
high regard, they have a good approach, particularly to young people,” said
Raimund Fastenbauer, general secretary of Jewish affairs for the Jewish
Community of Vienna. “This is vital as we are trying to attract more Jewish
immigrants to Vienna and keep our youth from leaving.”
Rotenberg’s friendly, nonjudgmental approach appeals to even the most
secular Jews, according to several students who attend Nefesh Yehudi.
Rotenberg does have one distinct disadvantage in Vienna: He speaks neither
German nor English. He relies on assistants to get some of his points across.
Nonetheless, Rotenberg has succeeded in drawing together Vienna’s
Ashkenazim and Sephardim, a relatively unusual phenomenon.
About one third of the 7,500 Jews registered as belonging to the Vienna
Jewish Community are Sephardi, with roots in former Soviet republics such as
Georgia, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
At the lively Chanukah party, socializing was as important for the students
as listening to the lecture.
Albert and Betty Kluanjiev, brother and sister, are ethnically Russian
Israelis who say Nefesh Yehudi is the one youth event in town that is not
segregated according to ethnic lines.
“We come here to meet Jewish students from all the world,” Albert said.
Betty chimed in, “And I don’t know any place in Vienna where there is
such mix of people our age.”
SCOTT PELLEY: Do you think you owe the Iraqi people an apology for not
doing a better job?
BUSH: That we didn't do a better job or they didn't do a better job?
PELLEY: Well, that the United States did not do a better job in providing
security after the invasion.
BUSH: Not at all. I am proud of the efforts we did. We liberated that
country from a tyrant. I think the Iraqi people owe the American people a
huge debt of gratitude, and I believe most Iraqis express that. I mean,
the people understand that we've endured great sacrifice to help them.
That's the problem here in America. They wonder whether or not there is a
gratitude level that's significant enough in Iraq.
Washington -- Iraq is in the throes of the largest refugee crisis in the Middle
East since the Palestinian exodus from Israel in 1948, a mass flight out of and
within the country that is ravaging basic services and commerce, swamping
neighboring nations with nearly 2 million refugees and building intense pressure
for emigration to Europe and the United States, according to the United Nations
and refugee experts.
The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, which appealed for $60 million in
emergency aid last week, believes 1.7 million Iraqis are displaced inside Iraq,
whose prewar population was 21 million. About 50,000 Iraqis are fleeing inside
Iraq each month, the United Nations said, and 500,000 have been displaced since
last February's bombing of a Shiite shrine in Samarra. These figures are as of
The Bush administration and the governments of Jordan and
Syria, the nations that accept the bulk of the refugees, have been reluctant to
acknowledge the humanitarian crisis, experts said.
"I think everyone at this point is in denial about the human consequences
of the war," said Kathleen Newland, director of the Migration Policy
Institute, who is familiar with the State Department's views.
Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., has scheduled a hearing today to push for more aid
and more U.S. admissions of refugees, especially those facing death threats for
working for the U.S. military.
At Kennedy's hearing, the State Department is expected to call for a slight
increase in Iraqi admissions to the United States. Just 220 Iraqis were admitted
last year, most of them not from the war. The Department of Homeland Security
worries that it would be difficult to screen out terrorists.
"I would suspect that the Department of Homeland Security would regard it
as a complete security nightmare," Newland said.
Kristele Younes, an advocate at Refugees International, said the refugee problem
is growing rapidly.
Satanic HOLYCOST of the Fourth Reich
"At the moment, we're seeing up to 80,000 to 100,000 that are being
displaced every month," inside and outside the country, she said. "In
Syria alone, there are estimations that there's about 40,000 Iraqis that are
coming every month."
Roughly 40 percent of Iraq's middle class is believed to
have fled, the U.N. said. Most are fleeing systematic persecution and have no
desire to return.
All kinds of people, from university professors to bakers, have been targeted by
militias, insurgents and criminals. An estimated 331 school teachers were slain
in the first four months of last year, according to Human Rights Watch, and at
least 2,000 Iraqi doctors have been killed and 250 kidnapped since the 2003 U.S.
invasion. Business owners are especially prone to extortion.
YOU OWE US, gaaaawwwwwwdddd bliss Maraka
The flight has undermined basic services such as water and sanitation and
disrupted commerce, making it increasingly difficult for Iraqi society to
function, officials said.
Iraqi Christians were an
early target after the 2003 invasion;
Keel all em dirty Arabs cries the
"Filthy Clean" Haggeites of Judeo-Churchinsanity
after the February
bombing, Shiite militias began taking revenge on Sunnis. Violence is rising in
southern Iraq between rival Shiite factions. Refugees International said many
people are targeted for "un-Islamic" dress or behavior.
Iraqis who work for the U.S. government or any Western group, such as
nongovernmental organizations and the news media, are especially vulnerable.
"People are targeted in extremely direct ways -- kidnapping, killings,
rapes," Younes said. "Every single family we interviewed had gone
through such an ordeal, and the tribal system in Iraq is such that revenge is
carried out generation to generation, so they feel ... return to Iraq would be
tantamount to a death sentence."
While the Bush administration is hastily devising new reconstruction plans for

Iraq March 17, 2003
refugee advocates say the
country most needs emergency humanitarian aid for the most vulnerable, including
orphans and women.
U.S. officials have "wanted to keep the impression
that they were being successful and that there were Iraqis who were
committed to building
said Bill Frelick, refugee policy director at Human Rights Watch and author of
an extensive report on the situation. "As it turns
out, many of the people who are fleeing are fleeing because of their
associations with the United States."
Syria and Jordan, for their part, may want to avoid being formally saddled with
refugees who have special international status.
Newland said Syria and Jordan consider the refugees tourists or illegal
immigrants, "which sort of implies that the problem will go away or that
they would be perfectly within their rights to kick people out."
a U.S. ally, has long accepted Arab refugees, and so has Syria's pan-Arabist
dictatorship. The fear now is that both may close their borders. Pressure on
Jordan, a country of just 6 million, is intense, with Iraqi refugees now
accounting for 10 percent of its population -- the equivalent of 30 million
landing on U.S. shores. Jordan began restricting entry after Iraqis bombed three
hotels in Amman in 2005.
Many Iraqis are also living in Egypt and Lebanon. Iran, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait
have barred Iraqis.
"There's just no way a small country like Jordan can, unaided, absorb
hundreds of thousands of Iraqi refugees," Newland said.
Despite terrorism concerns, some predict the United States eventually will admit
several hundred thousand Iraqi refugees, as it has after most military
"Is it going to be one of the unintended consequences of our invasion and
occupation of Iraq that we may end up taking hundreds of thousands of Iraqi
refugees in this country?" said James Hollifield, an expert in
international migration and director of the Tower Center for Political Studies
at Southern Methodist University. "I think there's a high probability of
that, which is what we saw after Vietnam."
When the South Vietnamese government collapsed, the United States initially
accepted 130,000 Vietnamese, including 65,000 fearing their lives because of
their collaboration with Americans. Many conferences later, 1.4 million
Vietnamese, Cambodians and Laotians had been admitted, according to U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Services.
Smaller admissions of refugees and those claiming asylum followed the conflict
in Nicaragua in the 1980s, two Cuban crises in the 1960s and 1980s, the 1979
Iranian Revolution, the Gulf War in the 1990s and the failed 1956 Hungarian
Revolution. The United States is the largest refugee host in the world,
admitting 2.66 million since 1976.
"The reality is that refugee flows are really tied to foreign policy,"
said David Reimers, a historian emeritus at New York University. "It's
perfectly possible that we could wind up with a couple hundred thousand Iraqi
"The parallel to me would be after Vietnam War," Reimers said.
"There was a frantic number of Vietnamese who wanted to get out, and we
were caught unawares; 130,000 or so climbed aircraft and helicopters," some
on their own, some evacuated by the U.S. military. Many more followed, and
Thailand was soon swamped. Thailand said it could not handle the flows and was
not responsible for them. The initial U.S. evacuation soon became, said
Citizenship and Immigration Services, "one of the longest running migration
and refugee resettlement programs in the modern era."
"Whether it was guilt feelings or a moral imperative, we began to resettle
them," Reimers said.
U.S. refugee policy has long been an ad hoc affair, Hollifield said.
"We sort of make it up as we go along ... The fact is, refugee
policy is a function of foreign policy, but also a function of our humanitarian
instincts. It is in fact a very messy business."
Most Iraqi refugees are determined to be resettled to Europe or North America,
advocates say. Life in the host countries has become more difficult, they
report. Resentment is growing, and most Iraqis are not legally permitted to
Resettlement abroad is considered a last resort on humanitarian and foreign
policy grounds. Countries in conflict eventually need their people to take part
in their own national struggles, some believe. "If we take all the most
educated and bright people from Haiti, Haiti's going to sink into the
abyss," Hollifield said the thinking goes.
For now, refugee organizations are calling for increased U.S. aid to Jordan and
even, through back channels, to Syria.

"Islamophobia may be too strong a word, but there is suspicion at least of
Muslims from the Middle East, and at this stage -- though this could change -- I
think people in this country don't see the United States as being the main cause
of the refugee flows," Newland said. "I would guess they see it more
as result of Iraqi-on-Iraqi violence."
and thus...Ishmael is pitted against the West, like cornered wolves, what do you

Despite anti-war sentiment, Newland said, "we have
not seen as much of an outpouring of sympathy for the innocent victims of this
war from Americans, as we did in the aftermath of that terrible
photograph of the little girl on fire with napalm (in Vietnam.) Nothing seems to
have quite seized the imagination of the American public about Iraqi civilian

Parents who lost their sons
in second Lebanon war, and have been operating ever since to get leaders to take
responsibility, say 'Olmert and Peretz
no moral authority to select new chief of staff'
The forum of bereaved parents who lost their sons in
Lebanon war met Wednesday evening following IDF Chief of Staff Dan
Halutz 's resignation and promised to continue their struggle until the
prime minister also resigns.
Let's guess, Hassidic RED Settlers of Chabad in the
In the meeting held in the home of Moshe and Riva Muskal, who lost
their son Rafanel, in the central town of Mazkeret Batya, the parents discussed
their next steps as part of the campaign they launched in light of the Lebanon
Being they did not slay enough Lebanese
The parents decided that now, after Halutz took responsibility and announced
that he was leaving his post, they should would focus on the political echelon
and on the moves that will lead to the resignation of Prime
Minister Ehud Olmert .
(Aholibah, secular zion to make way for the whited
spulchers....Sanhedrin of Dan)
David Einhorn, Yehonatan's father, suggested that the forum asks for a
meeting with Olmert in which they would demand that he follows in Halutz's
footsteps and resigns.
Contrary to the policy regarding Olmert, the forum
members (lowestroom forum and Sanhedrin Forum)
decided that there was no need to also focus on Defense
Minister Amir Peretz , and some of the parents said they assume he will
anyway resign in the near future.
During the meeting, the parents addressed the round of meetings held by
Peretz with the candidates to replace Halutz as chief of staff, claiming that
"the defense minister and the prime minister have no moral authorization to
select a new chief of staff" following the recent war's failures.
Moshe Muskal added, "The government must declare new elections, and only
the new leadership will be the one to choose the next chief of
Einhorn said that "we are not only talking about Dan Halutz. Every
person who took part in the war cannot be chief of staff."

The forum members stressed that the resignation of State leaders was
not their main goal, but a tool to make the army improve.
To slay mush better to the Red Hassidim design, however
they should have depended upon the Lord Jesus who is Christ the KING the life
"This is a tool for establishing a proper military leadership,
which will lead the army to its future tasks," they said.
More War and MURDER and Bloodshed
'Olmert should also be courageous and resign'
Oh But he will not
Moshe Nissan, the father of Yinon who was killed on the last day of the war,
also called for the resignation of the prime minister and defense minister.
"Yinon's birthday is on February 1, and as time goes by and nears this
date, the hole in my heart becomes bigger. Today I heard the prime minister
saying the chief of staff is a courageous man. I suggest to the prime minister
to also be courageous and to simply draw the conclusions and resign."
Another bereaved parent who took part in the meeting was Sergio Sheinbrum
from Moshav Mei Ami, whose son Yaniv was killed in the war. He also demanded
that all those responsible for the failures take responsibility and resign.
sounds like a Bushwhacker Adress to the Nation
Until now, he explains, he was not active in the campaign and had recently
returned from a trip to South America. The father toured the places which his
son visited during a one-year trip from which he returned in order to take part
in the war.
That right, son gets slain, heck, take a trip
Most of the participants feel that they are not operating on behalf of
themselves only but on behalf of the entire Israeli nation.

"We are doing this purely out of a feeling of mission," said David
Einhorn. "It would have been much easier for us without the protest, but I
feel that in his death my son let me continue living and the question is what
kind of lives we want to lead."
Hey....wake up Maraka and feel their pain

Legal analysis / Not the
first PM to face the fire
The Basic Law on Government attaches special
importance to the decision to open a criminal investigation against a prime
minister, by stipulating that such a probe can only be launched "with the
attorney general's consent." The attorney general does not have to make the
decision, but he does have to approve it. Thus State Prosecutor Eran Shendar's
decision to investigate Ehud Olmert over the sale of Bank Leumi should, by law,
have received Menachem Mazuz's approval.
Shendar's decision was based on the existence of an "evidentiary
infrastructure" that, to his mind, justified an investigation. This
evidence is not yet enough to warrant an indictment, but the decision is
nevertheless significant, as it was made following preliminary police inquiries.
The Basic Law does not discuss what happens if a
prime minister is under investigation, and formally, such a probe does not
affect the premier's standing. Only if he were indicted would he be expected to
resign, in line with the High Court of Justice's ruling
that any minister indicted on serious charges must resign. That ruling
did not relate to the prime minister, but would presumably apply to him as well.
The court has also ruled that under certain extreme circumstances, even
the opening of an investigation could require a minister to suspend himself.
However, the Israeli "tradition" in the case of prime ministers is
that they continue to serve while under investigation. That is what happened
during the probes of Ehud Barak, Benjamin Netanyahu and Ariel Sharon - none of
which resulted in indictments.
The prime minister is, of course, entitled to leave office of his own accord.
According to the Basic Law, he can transfer his responsibilities to another
minister for a maximum of 100 days by declaring himself "temporarily"
unable to fulfill his duties, and can resume them upon declaring that this
"incapacity" has ended.
Helping a friend
The crime of breach of trust, which carries a maximum sentence of three years,
includes cases where an office holder helped a friend to obtain unwarranted
benefits. Shimon Sheves, a former director general of the Prime Minister's
Office, was convicted of breach of trust in 2004 for that reason; in that case,
a nine-justice panel of the Supreme Court decided to convict due to the
"extremely severe conflict" between the public interest and Sheves's
private interests. Former chief justice Aharon Barak wrote in the ruling that
"the criminal prohibition against breach of trust is a key tool in
society's struggle to maintain the purity of the [public] service and ensure the
public's faith in public servants."
