Smart. When the Russian government can no longer prop up the economy, it'll crash hard.
Then the (((globalist bankers))) will be scapegoats for Putin's stupidity.

I have wondered about a certain autonomous region in the east for a while now.
And when they blow up  a Jewish community / cultural center in a major city , it's time to gtfo.

Is this a repeat from 1905?

If things turn revolutionary in Russia, you can count on at least one group scapegoating Jews for the whole thing.
There is already a LOT of xenophobia and the Orthodox Church in Russia always seems willing to
exploit it to go after their rivals too.  They've done it before successfully several times in the past,
and it sure wouldn't be a surprise to see it come around again..

FWIW there are now significantly more Jews in Manhattan than all of Russia.

Seems like the lives of Jews in Russia are in as precarious a spot as a fiddler on a roof.

Manhattan is good to avoid jackbooted thugs, Israel if you want to try on some jackboots for yourself. There are options

The only difficulty is immigration time to the states.

Israel has the right of return, making it the go-to for Jewish people getting the fark out rather than simply moving elsewhere.

Man, if a Rabbi thinks that Hungary is less Nazi than Russia, then Russia really has gone full fascist.

The players on the board will be rearranged and it will be just as bad or worse and I'm not looking forward to it.

I'm hopeful the Nat-C's stay out of office and their party falls apart.

This will just give most Russians another reason for supporting the war against Ukraine. But, if the Jews leave, who will the Russians blame the ills of their society on.  Up next, Muslims.

You think that's gonna last? Once russia loses this current war the government is gonna scapegoat the jews there so hard in order to redirect the rage of their populace to something other than themselves. As is tradition.

Fleeing might be a problem now that Estonia has shut down entry for Russian citizens, which was one of the few remaining ways for Russians to get to the EU, although they claim they'll be making exceptions for those seeking asylum, so that might work for Jews.

I still have a copy of his book "It's all very simple" that I found at an estate sale. Cover shows a little Black child servilely lighting a white cop's cigarette which tells you all about the book.

The chances of us being on the right side of history on this one keep dropping since we are one SCROTUS decision away from becoming a permanent one-Party fascist State where Republican legislatures get to throw out all the votes and choose the winners from State Auditor to POTUS.

Doing terrible things to Jews is how Czars let the serfs vent a little rage at a mostly helpless enemy, crank up the fear of Them, get the Church involved and generally be Russian.
