Anonymous asked: Seems like you and the rest of the US media are a bit behind. The story about Jews having to register in Ukraine was discredited days ago as hoax.

please feel free to read my other/subsequent posts on the topic before you troll me anonymously.

I just accidentally spammed 1200 people with LinkedIn invitations. Oh dear God, no. No no no no. Twelve. Hundred. The horror.

negationprocess asked: Since you're a journalist who cares about objectivity, would you mind posting a link that expresses the other side's view about supposed anti-Semitism in Donetsk? There is a piece at New Republic by Julia Ioffe. Thank you for considering this message.

Here you go, homie.

Anonymous asked: So you're a journalist yet it didn't occur to you that the Israeli media may be biased in order to protect their interests and/or those of their government possibly as a means of nurturing Israel's relationship with the UK and US by being anti-Russia

So you’re an anonymous person criticizing me anonymously on the Internet. Go, you. Look, it was probably a provocation, but a hair-raising one nonetheless. (Donetsk Rabbi Vishedsky said as much.) And there’s not a lot of dispute that it happened. Anyway. I’m not interested in a flame war. 

From the Guardian (bold is theirs):  

"The parties agreed today that all sides must refrain from the use of violence," [Secretary of State John] Kerry says. 

"We strongly condemned and rejected all expressions of racism.. and religious intolerance."

Kerry singles out an incident in which a letter was left at a synagogue in Donetsk demanding that Jewish people identify themselves.

"Notices were sent to Jews in one city indicating that they had to identify themselves as Jews," Kerry says. "In the year of 2014… this is not just intolerable, it is grotesque. It is beyond unacceptable.”

"Every party joined in its condemnation in that kind of behavior."
