I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

This is not what we do here, but it is important enough that I am posting it.

Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk where pro-Russian militants have taken over government buildings were told they have to “register” with the Ukrainians who are trying to make the city become part of Russia, according to Ukrainian and Israeli media.

Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city’s Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee “or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated,” reported Ynet News, Israel’s largest news website.

Donetsk is the site of an “anti-terrorist” operation by the Ukraine government, which has moved military columns into the region to force out militants who are demanding a referendum be held on joining Russia. The news was carried first by the Ukraine’s Donbass news agency.

The leaflets bore the name of Denis Pushilin, who identified himself as chairman of “Donetsk’s temporary government,” and were distributed near the Donetsk synagogue and other areas, according to the reports.

I can only hope this is some sort of hoax, would like to believe so, but that several major news outlets are said to be covering it only horrifyingly lends to its credibility.

If you have a voice, you have an obligation to not let something like this happen again.

    It would be interesting if they started wearing black armbands as a sign of defiance.

    Thanks for posting this Henry. I’m hoping this is a hoax.

  • It has been in the news quite a bit today. The events are confirmed to have occurred, but no one is taking credit. Locals are said to have not taken it very seriously as the Jewish community has been embraced in the area.

    I suspect it was an attempt to discredit the Russian sympathizers. Both sides are calling the other facists.

  • bjarthur

    it´s a hoax and propaganda according to danish press.

  • thatguy

    The irony of a ‘sceptic’ site, jumped off topic to post a hoax. A shitty hoax debunked before it was picked up by ‘media’. And left it there. Not very sceptic.

  • It was widely reported in the press, picked up by Israeli media and others. I heard it on NPR. It is still my understanding that the pamphlets were distributed, but were distributed as a hoax to bring negative attention to the party it was claimed distributed them. Which is what I said in comments below, at the time the article was written. I even said so in the article. Did you bother to read all the way to the end, or just the headline?
