The question is: Was the leaflet posted by an idiot, or is it an official act of the Russian seperatist government in Donetsk? It does not really matter if there were more antismeitic acts. Yes, there have probably been more.
The same question stands: Are these antisemitic acts represanative of the Russian seperatists as a whole- is it their official policy? Or, are these antisemitic acts being performed by any one of the groups of armed idiots on the Russian side?
As the report said they leaflet may well have been a "splinter group", I am going with the "idiots" theory.
The purpose of registration is identification, and when it's mandatory it is mandatory identification.
First I don't give a **** about your "opinion" on this issue, but in what universe does privacy go out the window when once embraces their civil liberties?
Maybe we should start registering protestors with the government next -- because "you never know."
You're messing with a slippery slope here and the end result will be mandatory government inspections of your home...... It's only a matter if time through "progress" that that will happen.
It only took a few years before the Patriot Act was shifted from terrorists to US citizens....
Registration leads to confiscation - that is the intent. Just like mandatory registration of Jews in Germany lead to their holocaust.
This has NOTHING to do with crime and everything to do with a government that is authoritarian and tyrannical - a government that doesn't like what they cannot control.
What you fail to realize is that all these ideas are nothing more than IDEAS, weather or not it's religion or politics - registration is nothing more than a means to identify an individual, segregate and individual or cull an individual....

My brother was at least as conservative as you, and he was SO sure that "an armed society is a peaceful society". I mentioned Japan and asked him what he thought the homicide rate in Japan was, since guns are scarce as hen's teeth there. His reply was, "I don't know, at least as much as ours!" And the argument went downhill from there. The ignorance - willful ignorance - simply astounds.
But you go on ahead with your rant - I won't reply further.

At the same time, the syntax of the leaflet suggested somebody with a low education wrote it. Perhaps the source is wrong as to who authorized it and it was just an idiot group, or perhaps this does not say much about the intellects of the Russian seperatist leadership?
- "Slavic Republic of Donetsk"? Urkainians are slavs to. Thus, Donestsk is going to be "slavic" whether it is Russian or Ukrainian. Transdinistra dispute involves non slavic Romanians.
- Registering with Ukrainians? Do friendly, anti western Ukrainiains still register? Who exactly is a Ukrainian vs a russifed Ukrainian?
- Dont forget to bring your fifty bucks in cash! Yeah, I am sure that is going right into the Donetsk treasury.
