Skip to comments.The Unholy Trinity: How Sex, Organized Crime, And Espionage Intersect In The Israel-Russia-Ukraine Triangle

Russian-Israeli relations are rapidly deteriorating as both countries engage in a tit for tat on visitor screening
The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics had 15 republics and countless autonomous regions, but really only two republics mattered: the Russian Federation and Ukraine. The rest were window dressing. The USSR had only three capital cities that mattered, Moscow, Leningrad (St. Petersburg today), and Kiev. The rest were provinces.
After the fall of the USSR in 1990 and the free for all that followed, Soviet Jews, those who have not emigrated to Israel or America in the 1970s like my family had done, did what Jews always do: split into parts. One part stood in long lines at the consulates of countries that represented Israeli interests in the now defunct USSR, which had no diplomatic ties with Israel since 1967 and begged to be allowed to immigrate to Israel under the auspices of the Law of Return. The other part became busy appropriating anything of value that could be appropriated.
Enterprising mid-level managers in major industrial corporations, many of them Jews, suddenly became owners of said corporations, overnight billionaires in dollar terms. All it took was guts and small startup capital to hire enough bodyguards to avoid being killed by rival claimants to the loot. So was born the disproportionately Jewish oligarch class of Russia and Ukraine.
The oligarchs, never to be ones to put all their eggs in one basket, did not neglect to get their Israeli passports just like their less enterprising Jewish comrades had done, though their physical presence in Israel was not required and was often unwanted.
Israel, awash in American technology improved by Israels own contributions as well as indigenously developed top-notch military tech has always been a target for Russian espionage, but now there was a truly golden opportunity to infiltrate Israel with hundreds if not thousands intelligence operatives. After all, Israels founding mission was to provide a home for all Jews and the impact of a million repatriates, many with engineering degrees, on a country in dire need of more Jews and more engineers could not be overstated. They all got in and nobody was vetted.
One of the less advertised aspects of Israeli culture is its pervasive addiction to sex
Both countries want the best and closest relations possible. Leaving aside all the sex speculation, both leaders respect each other and there are shared science, technology, business, cultural, and tourism interests. Perhaps the occasional bump in the road is inevitable - especially when countries aspire to open borders.
Surely, these are Gods Chosen People!
Yes. They still are.
Gods People are those who follow Him.
This article looks like something a Ukrainian Nazi might have written.
The Creator is not finished with the children of Israel yet.
“21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:
23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their childrens children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.
26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.”
It is interesting, and telling, that you would choose to use the term “Nazi” in describing the author of this article.
This article was written by a Jew, Baruch Pletner.
Excerpt from Bio:
Baruch Pletner is an entrepreneur, a scientist, an inventor, and a private pilot. He is passionate about education, the outdoors, and the war on globalism.
Baruch holds a PhD degree from the Technion in Haifa, Israel and an MBA from Northeastern University in Boston.
Born in Kiev to Zionist parents, Baruch spent the first ten years of his life in the Soviet Union getting an education in the evils of communism.
Though both of his grandfathers were killed defending the USSR against Nazi invaders, Baruch was a victim of rampant anti-Semitism from as long as he can remember, making his departure for Israel in 1973 a very welcome event.
In Israel, Baruch served in the Air Force as a Fire Control Officer in a HAWK surface to air missile battery and took part in the First Lebanon War.
It actually all comes down to power and money, does it not?
I know who he is. But the idea is that the Jews robbed the East Europe blind is a sort of that is peddled by a certain political group.
Thats another way of saying it. Yes
I do not understand.
It seems as though you imply here that a Jew, the author of this article, is a Nazi.
Please correct any inaccurate impressions.
I argue the idea that the Jews took over the post Soviet economies and corrupted it. It is red-brown propaganda and it is sad to see a Jewish author repeating it.
You argue that Jews took over and are responsible for post-Soviet economic corruption? Why do you say this?
The USSR was broke twice over in 1989 and could not even feed its own people. It could hardly have been more corrupt.
To blame the faulty transition from Communism on Jews is anti-Semitic. A number of individuals many of them of Jewish heritage are to blame but to say it a Jews’ fault is not right.
Perhaps I have been unclear. I posted this article to illustrate a “perfect storm”.
I did attempt to post the entire article in sections. This was removed by the moderator. I assume it was a copyright issue, but have not checked.
Please read this excerpt for support of my point:
“. . And so it came to be that the lawlessness of the FSU states combined with the Israeli need to give refuge to ex-Soviet Jewry without first inquiring who was a genuine repatriate and who wasnt to make Israel the perfect hub for FSU and specifically Russian and Ukrainian criminal and espionage activities.
Today, three decades after the initial big bang, the acrid heartburn of those events is finally making itself felt. The West has stopped basking in the glow of its Cold War victory and is beginning to view Russia again as its primary rival.
Reckless American adventurism in the Middle East has thrown the region into turmoil and allowed Russia a foothold in it, making the Russian threat to Western interests that much more severe.”
After having re-read the article, I do not see anti-semitism by the author. I see analysis of a political situation.
Is an error in perception here by either of us a possibility?
