Mr Putin and the Auschwitz Pilgrimage


by Israel Shamir

(from the Unz Review)

The edifice of the post-1991 world order is collapsing right before our eyes. President Putin’s decision to give a miss to the Auschwitz pilgrimage, right after his absence in Paris at Charlie festival, gave it the last shove. It was good clean fun to troll Russia, as long as she stayed the course. Not anymore. Russia broke the rules.
Until now, Russia, like a country bumpkin in Eton, tried to belong. It attended the gathering of the grandees where it was shunned, paid its dues to European bodies that condemned it, patiently suffered ceaseless hectoring of the great powers and irritating baiting of the East European small-timers alike. But something broke there. The lad does not want to belong anymore; he picked up his stuff and went home. Just when they needed him to kneel in Auschwitz.
The Auschwitz gathering is an annual Canossa of the Western leaders where they bewail their failure to protect the Jews and swear their perennial obedience to them. This is a more important religious rite in our days, the One Ring to rule them all, established in 2001, when the Judeo-American empire reached the pinnacle of its power. The Russian leader duly attended the events. This year, they will have to do without him. Israeli ministers already have expressed their deep dissatisfaction for this although it was Russia’s Red Army that saved the Jews in Auschwitz. Absence of Russia turns the Holocaust memorial day into a parochial, West-only, event. Worse, Russia’s place will be taken by Ukraine, with its Nazi-glorifying regime.
This comes after the French Charlie demo, also spurned by Russia. The West hinted that Russia’s sins would be forgiven, up to a point, if she joined, first the demo, and later, the planned anti-terrorist coalition, but Russia did not take the bait. This was a visible change, for previously, Russian leaders eagerly participated in such events and voted for West-sponsored resolutions. In 2001, Putin fully supported George Bush’s War on Terrorism in the UN and on the ground. As recently as 2011, Russia agreed with sanctions against North Korea and Iran. As for coming to a demonstration, the Russians could always be relied upon. This time, the Russians did not come, excepting the token presence of the foreign minister Mr. Lavrov. This indomitable successor of Mr. Nyet had left the event almost immediately and went – to pray in the Russian church, in a counter-demonstration, of sorts, against Charlie. By going to the church, he declared that he is not Charlie.

An interesting article, and one that at first reading contains a lot of truth, however, I'm very cautious and somewhat suspicious of anything that Shamir writes. He is too smooth and plausible by half!
Getting back to Putin, his actions appear quite sensible given that Russia is a separate civilizational entity. The big question for us is this; is Putin a friend of 'traditional' or just temporarily miffed that he not at the top table with all the other traitors and apparatchiks of the NWO.

Not a huge fan of Putin, but it is about time that prominent people stop genuflecting to Jews.
Since incessant whining is in the DNA of that race, the outcry will go on and on.
Perhaps Putin is realizing the role that the gold hoarders have had in the downturn in the Russian economy.
Do not think for a minute that they have not been involved. Perfidious.

I don't tolerate Anti-Semitism in any shape or form ,and some of your correspondents here appear to believe the protocols of Zion, however I am also of the opinion that Israel needs to stop double dealing .Notice no response by Israel to IS but they will bomb Assad's Syria.

Oh and how convenient for western powers/ media to lambast Putin and Russia whilst sleeping on the job and allowing IS to develop

Show me where the "Protocols" have not foretold what has happened and is happening.

This is not the place to get into an argument, as we are guests on this blog, however I must say all the available 'evidence' points to IS terrorist as being financed and controlled by a joint Washington-Tel Aviv operation.
The Protocols of Zion have a very long history. Henry Ford gave a copy with every model-T,and when challenged he said; "the authenticity of these documents is in dispute, all I can say is they provide a remarkably accurate description of what is happening today". He made that profound statement in the mid 1920's. The program of destruction as detailed in 'The Protocols' is drawing to its final conclusion. Is more evidence required?
