The Brute, Anti-Semitic, Killer Slav on WABC's "Religion on the Line"
Bieganski the Blog exists to further explore the themes of the book Bieganski the Brute Polak Stereotype, Its Role in Polish-Jewish Relations and American Popular Culture.
These themes include the false and damaging stereotype of Poles as brutes who are uniquely hateful and responsible for atrocity, and this stereotype's use in distorting WW II history and all accounts of atrocity.
This blog welcomes comments from readers that address those themes. Off-topic and anti-Semitic posts are likely to be deleted.

All good points. However, this can be worse. I have heard respectable Jews blame the Chmielnicki/Khmelnitsky massacres of Jews on the Poles.ReplyDelete
Well doesn't this just take the cake? What a total jerk? One would hope that this rabbi gets a scolding from his superiors? I can't imagine a local priest flapping his lips like this without immediate Bishop level push back.ReplyDelete

Rabbi Shmuel Kaminezki, spiritual leader of the Jewish community in Dnipropetrovsk, praised Mr Kolomoisky and denied Russian claims that extremists out to persecute Russians and other minorities had taken over power in Ukraine.ReplyDelete
“The Jewish community is very proud of his decision to leave his comfort zone and really devote himself...to protect the homeland and develop the region,” the Rabbi said.
“What the Russians, with their propaganda on television and in their statements, are doing is trying to show that Ukraine is anti-Semitic, which is not true. It is very safe here for the Jews. This new Ukrainian leadership is not a fascist leadership, they are patriots,” he added.
