Russia. People, who deny the Holocaust, and representatives of other anti-Semitic organizations met at a conference in Moscow. As the Union of Committees for the Former USSR Jews Protection informed, the conference was attended by anti-Semites from Russia, several European countries and the USA.
The conference was organized by a Russian Oleg Platov and an American Willis Carto, founder of the Freedom Lobby.
Hungary. Hungarian radicals and anti-Semites held an "anti-socialist" demonstration in Budapest on February 24. Supporters of the Party of Hungarian Justice and Life, which is a part of the State Assembly, gathered on the square where the socialist headquarters is situated. Socialists are the main opposition power in the country. Ishtvan Churka, the radicals' leader, known for his xenophobia and anti-Jewish views, declared at the meeting that "today Hungary does not fully belong to Hungarians". At the same time he is confident that if his party has success on the following spring elections, the situation will change, and "the country will be under total control of its native people".
Russia. The trial of Oleg Kitter, director of the security agency "Alex" and editor of the newspaper "Alex-Inform", finally finished in Samara. It continued for almost two years. Kitter was charged for "inflaming national, racial, and religious hatred" (Article No 282 of the Russian Criminal Code). The action was brought by the Office of Public Prosecutor of Samara city after a statement of the local Jewish national and cultural autonomy.
At his press-conferences Kitter many times talked about the necessity of destroying synagogues and driving rabbis away from Russia. Every issue of his newspaper publishes anti-Semitic forgeries like "Protocols of the Zion wise men", "Catechism of Jews in USSR", insults to Samara Jewish community and local Jewish officials of the oblast administration, anti-Semitic caricatures and slogans. The final sessions of the regional Samara court lasted for three days. Kitter always came in a white festive suit with a suite of barkashov followers and communists. As a result, judge Morgunkov closed the case in the absence of corpus delicti. Now Kitter got total freedom for realization of his goals.
France. Anti-Semites drew the David Star and the word "Zhyd" on the window of a kosher butcher's shop in Toulouse. Arye Bensemkhaun, representative of the local Jewish community, commenting on this incident said that "assault, death threats, and spits happen almost every day, and they are directed at pupils of Jewish schools, rabbis, and any person who looks like a Jew".
The Toulouse Jewish population makes up 20-25 thousand Jews.
Russia. A new political association - the People's Patriotic Party of Russia - was established on February 26. People's patriots decided to unite efforts in the struggle against "mason Zionism", "demofascism" and telepuziks. The congress was held in the studies center of the trade union of APK workers. The delegates were treated very strictly there. They had to show their documents for five times before they were allowed to enter the hall - at every turn in the corridor, on the stairs, before the door and so on. But all difficulties were overcome and 187 delegates from 67 regions established a new party. The party was established according to the new law on political parties. However, the words national-patriots said at the congress can easily conflict with the law.
Igor Rodionov, army general, former Minister of Defense, became the chief party's ideologist. His one-hour long report was dedicated not to the party formation, but to expose "inside and outside Zionism", which wages a "mean and high-paid" war against Russia.
According to Rodionov's words, Jews hold key posts and control 70% of industries and most of the mass media.
In view of these scandalous matters the new party is going to "make the Jewish people condemn Zionism and return all the stolen loot in Russia". And, in the first place, the party wants Jews to "confess to the Russian people for the crimes committed by Jewish terrorists and extremists".
