Betreff: Re: [Cz-L] Revolution 8
Dear all,

I´m sorry - but Zissels interview is naiv! And -not like Christian wrote- Zissel do not deny anti-Semitism on maidan. He just mentions, that they made roleplays and were not attacked and Jews are not the primary target of Svoboda - just number six or seven.??? Normally fascists would say something like that: no panic - you are just the sixth person i´m gonna kick out of social life - so relax! There are enough photos from the entrance of Kiev´s city hall: everything is staffed with pictures of Stepan Bandera (who is reliable for the pogroms of Lemberg and Wolhynien), Swastika, SS-Runes...

I don´t know, where Josef Zissels is living - but obviously not in Ukraine. Because otherwise he should know, that there´s a gap between police files and real actions. If you walk through Ukrainian streets you can see fascistic and anti-Semitic graffitis all over. But it seems, that Zissels is overlooking big parts of right wing "politics" in Ukraine: Patriot Ukrajina, UNA-UNSO, SNA, SBB, SS... Beside he reduces, what he calls Neo-Antisemitism, just on the Israel-Conflict.
