Awesome: Russian Backed Separatists Said to be fighting Ukrainian "Fascism & Antisemetism" Requiring Jews to Register

The tragic irony here is that despite this report, my friends in Russia will continue to believe that the "fascists" behind the "junta" in Ukraine are also "antisemitic" nationalists. When in fact it is their own government that is fascist. They honestly think they have a free media because they can watch music videos and late night TV runs softcore porn. Porn and MTV: the bread and circus of the New Rome:

Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk where pro-Russian militants have taken over government buildings were told they have to "register" with the Ukrainians who are trying to make the city become part of Russia, according to Israeli media.

Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city's Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee "or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated," reported Ynet News, Israel's largest news website...

Consequences for non-compliance will result in citizenship bein g revoked "and you will be forced outside the country with a confiscation of property." A registration fee of $50 would be required, it said.

I use "the new Rome" here intentionally. I do not think Putin wishes to resurrect the Soviet Union, as some commentators are suggesting. Putin hates communism and hates the old notion of the "Soviet man". No, his lamentations on the collapse of the Soviet Union are because the Soviet Union was nothing more than the communist version of the Russian Empire. His real beef is that Russia has lost it's imperial greatness.

And you know what they call the Emperor in Russia? The Tsar. Which is just Russian for "Caesar". No, it's not a coincidence. They named themselves Caesar on purpose.

It's also the reason that the old Imperial Flag had the double headed Eagle. It represents Russia as the legitimate heir of Rome, both the Eastern empire in Constantinople (the eagle facing right) and the Western Empire in Rome (the eagle facing left).

Putin fancies himself Caesar of a new Holy Russian Empire. Or, at least, this is what he aspires to.
