Russia: Jewish Leader Urges University Textbook Pulled

IN RUSSIA, a Jewish leader urged the head of Moscow State University to take steps to drop a history textbook considered by many to be anti-Semitic.

Alexander Boroda (pictured), president of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia, sent a letter Monday to Viktor Sadovnichy urging the Moscow State leader to act upon a history textbook written by university professors Alexander Vdovin and Alexander Barsenkov.

Many experts have perceived the textbook, which deals with Russian history between 1917 and 2004, as extremist and anti-Semitics [sic]. It provides the percentage of Jews in former Soviet governments and similarly treats many historic events….

“The stance of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia is the same as of the public and of the expert community who called the textbook an example of extremist literature,” Boroda said in his letter, describing some of the authors’ descriptions as “sounding Nazi.”

Boroda also asked Sadovnichy to hold an internal investigation into the textbook and to put an end to any anti-Semitic activities at the university.

“We wouldn’t like to go as far as to a court trial,” Boroda said, “but the degree of heat of public discussion makes us think about this.”

There was a clip on You Tube where President Putin addresses a council of Rabbis and states the leadership of the USSR was “80% Jewish” and the entire room is silent as a mouse. This video was censored from You Tube many times. I cannot find it but I’m sure it’s there somewhere. Truth Seekers are constantly creating new accounts and posting them again. Of course that was before they started demanding phone numbers. And of course next it will be copies of your drivers licenses and passports as a condition of posting content. One of the things that perplexes me is why there is no competitor for You Tube and why these controlled internet media outlets are not targeted by Trump under the Sherman Anti-Trust Act.

If they are concerned about the degree of heated public discussion – this would seem to indicate the Talmudic Jews DO NOT have media control in Russia to the extent needed to narrate, taint, neutralize the discussion with the typical panel of cherry picked and paid “experts” who pretend to “disagree” with each other while they all come to the same conclusions.

This is good news yes ?
