639 ADL to Ukraine: Don't Link YOUR Holocaust with OURS

ADL to Ukraine: Don't Link YOUR Holocaust with OURS

Newsletter published on 10 January 2014

Peter Myers, January 10, 2014

When Viktor Yushchenko was President of Ukraine, he sought to move it 
away from Russia and towards the United States.

He proclaimed the Holodomor (Ukraine Famine) a genocide, and sought 
assistance from the Anti-Defamation League in achieving closer relations 
with the US Government.

Perhaps he did not know that the Orange Revolution (which brought him to 
power) had been secretly orchestrated by Gene Sharp, the State 
Department and foundations such as the National Endowment for Democracy 

The ADL being a leading part of the Jewish lobby in the US, Yushchenko's 
approach suggested that he believed that it was close to the seat of power.

Yushchenko depicted the Holodomor as a genocide perpetrated by Russians. 
Yet it was only in the Soviet era that such an event happened - not in 
the centuries of the Tsarist Russian Empire.

The Bolshevik Revolution had been led by atheistic Jews, and even though 
Stalin overthrew them, they were still greatly influential during the 
1930s. The Collectivization of Agriculture, as part of an 
Industrialization drive, was one of Trotsky's policies, which Stalin had 
opposed (instead supporting Bukharin's pro-peasant line).

Trotsky, although exiled, was agenda-setting from the sidelines. His 
hardline approach may be gauged by his earlier proposal for the 
"militarization of labor", ie forced labour on a large scale. Lenin had 
rejected that, but Stalin lated adopted his similar proposal in the 
Collectivization drive.

Bolshevik Jews, from Kaganovich down, played a large role in the 
suppression of Ukrainians. Yuri Slezkine, a Jewish author, calls them 
"Stalin's Willing Executioners" (The Jewish Century, p. 103). 

Michael Hudson, an Economics Professor whose father was the American 
Trotskyist leader Carlos Hudson, visited the ADL, and reported, "These 
were old Schachtmanites who had become ultra-rightists." Schachtmanites 
are a faction of Trotskyist.

Yet Yushchenko approached the very same forces for assistance, all the 
while blaming the Russians.

Leaders of the ADL visited Ukraine and met with Yushchenko's chief 
adviser. No doubt, observing the success of the ADL in promoting 
Holocaust-awareness, Yushchenko was hoping to enlist their support to 
make the Holodomor equally prominent.

But rather than co-operate with this venture, ADL leaders warned 
Yushchenko not to invade their turf - not to create a RIVAL Holocaust in 
the public mind.

Parts of the meeting are recorded in a Youtube video. It shows Abe 
Foxman (head of the ADL) saying:

"But one thing that you need to be sensitive about is not to link it 
{the Holodomor} with the Holocaust. Be careful that it not be linked as 
your genocide and our genocide, because that would be counter-productive."

Yushchenko, Ukraine’s only president to recognize the Holodomor as 
genocide – bullied by the ADL not to compare with Holocaust

February 18th, 2010 Andrew

I tweeted about this earlier today and posted a clip from the 2009 
documentary Defamation in which an Israeli-Jew discusses the 
politicization of the Holocaust and Anti-Semitism in modern times.

Abe Foxman the head of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the world’s 
largest advocate for Israel and fighting Anti-Semitism meets with 
Yushchenko’s advisors and warns them not to compare the two genocides – 
the Holodomor and the Holocaust:

Abe Foxman (head of the ADL): But one thing that you need to be 
sensitive about is not to link it (the Holodomor) with the Holocaust. Be 
careful that it not be linked as ‘your genocide’ and ‘our genocide’, 
because that would be counter-productive.

Israel has still yet to recognize the Holodomor as genocide.
