Outrageous Pro-Kiev Op-Ed

Outrageous Pro-Kiev Op-Ed

by Stephen Lendman

Haaretz editors published it. They know better. They shame their US counterparts. They feature writers excluded from their pages.

Western ones substitute propagandists. They're illegitimate. They lack credibility. They masquerade as journalists. US media feature them prominently. Readers are systematically lied to.

Hennadi Nadolenko is Kiev's ambassador to Israel. He represents illegitimate fascist putschists.

Haaretz editors gave him feature op-space. Doing so was shamelessly irresponsible.

Nadolenko took full advantage. He headlined "Nobody wants a war, but Ukraine is fighting back."

"Russia thinks it has found foolproof methods, but a lie is a lie and aggression is aggression. The evidence is everywhere."

None whatever exists. Lies, damn lies and misinformation substitute. More on what Nadolenko said below. A stiff antacid dose would help before reading it.

On June 29, 2010, ousted President Viktor Yanukovych appointed Nadolenko Ukraine's ambassador to Israel.

He betrayed his country disgracefully. He supports illegitimate fascist putschists. He's a longtime foreign service officer.

From 2007 - 2010, he was Embassy of Ukraine to the USA trade and economic mission head.

From 2006 - 2007, he was Secretariat of the President of Ukraine information strategies/information service department head.

From 2005 - 2006, he was Secretariat of the President of Ukraine deputy information service head.

From 2004 - 2005, he was Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) department of information technologies acting head counsellor.

From 2003 - 2004, he was MFA information technologies head counsellor.

From 1998 - 2003, he was Embassy of Ukraine to the USA second first secretary.

Earlier in 1998, he was MFA department of international organizations third secretary.

From 1996 - 1998, he had other MFA Diplomatic Academy of Ukraine duties.

In 1996, he was MFA department of European and American countries third secretary.

From 1994 - 1996, he was MFA department of European and American countries division of the USA and Canada attache.

Lies infested his Haaretz op-ed. "I would like to share with you the Ukrainian position," he said.

"After the 'Anschluss of Crimea,' the Kremlin went over to a second stage of the war on Ukraine by starting a covert operation in the country's east."

"Russia is sticking to the same routine as in Crimea. First, it is deploying professional military and mercenaries on Ukrainian territory."

"Second, it is paying local radicals and criminals to pose as 'pro-Russian forces.' Third, it is trying to make the events look like turmoil stoked by ordinary people."

"But it doesn't look like that at all. Unlike the December-February Euromaidan protest movement in Kiev, this is not a domestic uprising but full-blown foreign aggression against Ukraine."

"There is valid proof that special-operations groups are being deployed on the ground. These are not Ukrainians. They are professional Russian mercenaries waging a war on Ukrainian territory."

"Saboteurs with Russian citizenship are being apprehended throughout Ukraine. This and other evidence, including intercepted radio traffic, confirm that these are foreigners, invaders.

Fact check:

Crimean reunification with Russia was no "Anschluss." Crimeans voted overwhelmingly for it. Nearly 97% did so. Turnout was 83%.

So-called Kremlin Eastern Ukrainian overt or covert operations don't exist. No evidence suggests otherwise. Claiming it changes nothing.

Radicalized elements arrived from Kiev. Putschists deployed them. They did so to incite violence. No Russian forces are involved.

Claiming Euromaidan protests were legitimate doesn't wash. Ousting democratically elected President Viktor Yanukovych was the most brazen overt coup since Mussolini's 1922 march on Rome.

Nadolenko supports it. He's conspiratorially involved. Claiming Eastern Ukrainian activists have no legitimacy denies their freedom-fighting rights.

Calling them "(s)aboteurs with Russian citizenship" doesn't wash. Nor claiming they're being "apprehended throughout Ukraine."

It bears repeating. So-called evidence doesn't exist. Big Lies substitute. They infested Nadolenko's op-ed. Haaretz editors disturbingly published them. Due diligence was noticeably absent.

Ukraine isn't "fighting back." It's waging war on freedom. It wants illegitimate fascist rule institutionalized. It wants ordinary Ukrainians exploited.

It wants state enterprises handed to Western corporations at fire sale prices. He wants them free to loot state resources. It's cracking down hard on resisters.

Police states operate this way. State terrorism reflects official Kiev policy. So-called "anti-terrorist operations" target freedom-loving Ukrainians.

"We hope the multilateral agreement in Geneva on April 17 between Ukraine, Russia, the United States and the European Union will promote the stabilization of the situation in Ukraine," said Nadolenko.

"We are eager to find a peaceful solution through diplomatic dialogue to ease the tension between Ukraine and Russia."

Kiev putschists violated Geneva agreed on terms straightaway. They unleashed violence. They reject resolving things diplomatically.

They lied claiming otherwise. They enjoy full US support. One fascist regime backs another. They're partners in crime.

Don't expect Nadolenko to explain. Or Haaretz editors for publishing his rubbish. It doesn't pass the smell test and then some. It's polar opposite truth.

It ignores what begs to be explained. Not least is virulent anti-Semitism. Haaretz editors owe their readers an explanation. It's sorely lacking.

Nazi anti-Semitism raged. Neo-Nazis operate the same way. They infest Kiev. They hold real power.

Illegitimate president Olexander Turchynov's Fatherland chairmanship reveals his hate-mongering agenda. Self-appointed prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk is a Fatherland party leader.

Other neo-Nazis include parliamentary members. So do ones controlling powerful ministries.

Neo-Nazi Andriy Parubiy co-founded Ukraine's Social National party. He did so with neo-Nazi Oleh Tyahnybok. It's now called Svoboda.

Both figures wield enormous influence. Parubiy heads Kiev's powerful National Security and Defense Council.

Tyahnybok heads Svoboda. He chose no portfolio after putschists seized power. Perhaps he has greater aspirations in mind.

Other neo-Nazis dominate policymaking. Obama's new friends are ideological extremists. They represent mob rule. They tolerate no opposition. They're militantly anti-Semitic.

Coverup and denial can't hide it. Eastern Ukrainians highlight it. Putschists target Ukrainian Jews repressively. They number around 200,000.

Most live in Kiev. They include family members of holocaust survivors. Nightmarish conditions could return. History has a disturbing way of repeating.

Many fear for their safety for good reason. Some plan leaving. Threats were made. Synagogues were torched. Jewish shops were vandalized.

Israel remains silent. Haaretz turns a blind eye. So do other Israeli media. US ones are worst of all. AIPAC ignores what's happening altogether.

Obama administration officials turn truth on its head. They wrongfully blame Eastern Ukrainians for virulent Kiev anti-Semitism.

Hate-mongering is official putschist neo-Nazi policy. US and other Western supporters pretend it doesn't exist. Kiev Jews know better.

If past is prologue, ongoing disturbing incidents may be harbingers of pogroms to follow. According to one Kiev Jew:

"The greatest concern is what happens if a mob is suddenly incited to attack a synagogue or a Jewish school" or entire community.

"Will police (intervene) to stop them?" Will they be allowed to rampage freely? Will they be encouraged to do so?

Kiev Rabbi Reuven Stamov is justifiably worried. "We have seen many unpleasant things from Svoboda members," he said.

"The authorities haven't done enough to find who is behind (hate-mongering) attacks." Failure to act encourages more of the same.

Things began this way in Nazi Germany. Incidents started slowly. They escalated out-of-control. Mass extermination followed.

George Santayana's warning goes unheeded. "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it," he said.

Edmond Burke said much the same thing: "Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it."

Ukrainian Jews have just cause to worry. Especially Kiev ones. Neo-Nazi hate-mongering threatens them.

Official silence whitewashes what demands highlighting. Haaretz editors share blame.

They owe their readers an apology. Publishing Nadolenko's propaganda shamed them. Their regulars deserve much better. Failure to do so betrays them.
