This collection of facts ranging from those connected to Jewish complicity in the Holocaust to Israel’s political support of Neo-Nazis in Kiev confirms the veracity of Lavrov’s worldview that one’s ethno-religious identity at birth doesn’t predetermine their political views later in life.
Russia isn’t retreating from Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s worldview that he shared in a recent interview where he explained that one’s ethno-religious identity at birth doesn’t predetermine their political views. He controversially referenced Adolf Hitler’s allegedly Jewish ancestry to make his factually true point that contradicts that fascist monster’s false conspiracy theory that ethno-religious identity at birth does indeed predetermine political views and is therefore a reason to genocide entire people. Israel immediately condemned Lavrov, but in doing so, its officials who represent Holocaust survivors and their descendants inadvertently extended credence to Hitler’s antisemitic views.
Moscow is standing strong though and isn’t stepping back a single inch from what its top diplomat said. To the contrary, it’s doubling down and pushing back against Tel Aviv’s vicious attacks against Lavrov. In a detailed statement released on Tuesday (available here in Russian but it can easily be Google Translated), its Foreign Ministry wrote that Israel’s “anti-historical statements…largely explain why the current Israeli government supports the Neo-Nazi regime in Kiev.” It then proceeded to share objectively existing and easily verifiable facts concerning Jewish complicity in the Holocaust before segueing into sharing similarly existing and verifiable facts regarding Neo-Nazism in contemporary Ukraine.
It certainly deserves to be read in full since the media is only selectively quoting excerpts from this lengthy statement in order to deter the public from reading its full contents due to the “politically incorrect” facts shared therein. Israel’s support of Ukraine’s genuinely Neo-Nazi government which exists in spite of President Volodymyr Zelensky being Jewish is evidenced by its decision to twice condemn Russia at the UN for its ongoing special military operation in Ukraine: first in early March and then in early April when it voted to suspend Russia from the Human Rights Council. Footage of Neo-Nazis using jointly Israeli produced anti-tank missiles has fueled speculation of military support too.
Despite being led by Jews and representing Holocaust survivors as well as their descendants, Israeli officials support Neo-Nazi Kiev for self-interested political reasons that have nothing to do with their ethno-religious identity and actually contradict expectations of Israeli Jews’ attitudes towards Ukrainian fascists. This fact, which cannot be denied due to Tel Aviv’s votes in Kiev’s support against Moscow at the UN that are matters of public record, confirms the veracity of Lavrov’s worldview that one’s ethno-religious identity at birth doesn’t predetermine their political views. The socio-cultural and economic environment in which they were raised do, which in turn shape their views towards political issues.
Nevertheless, socio-cultural and economic influences aren’t the sole determinants of one’s political views since it ultimately comes down to their personal beliefs, influenced as they might be by those preexisting structural factors. Their genome, however, has absolutely nothing to do with their political views. Those born with an ethno-religious identity as Israeli Jews are not predetermined to oppose Neo-Nazis in Ukraine as proven by Tel Aviv’s political support of those Ukrainian fascists whose ideological ancestors were the same monsters that carried out the Holocaust. Their motivation is to side with their Western allies against Russia in spite of cultivating close ties with Moscow in recent years.
This collection of facts ranging from those connected to Jewish complicity in the Holocaust to Israel’s political support of Neo-Nazis in Kiev confirms the veracity of Lavrov’s worldview that one’s ethno-religious identity at birth doesn’t predetermine their political views later in life. There’s no middle ground between his and Hitler’s worldviews, the latter of whom claimed that ethno-religious identity at birth does indeed predetermine one’s political views later in life and that entire people like the Jews therefore deserved to be genocided because of it. The more that Israel denies the veracity of Lavrov’s worldview, the more that it inadvertently extends credence to Hitler’s antisemitic one.
