APARTHEID COMES TO RUSSIA

It looks like I jumped the gun two months ago when I applauded the Russian government for endorsing the creation of a Palestinian state. I said It was not surprising that Russia joined the growing number of nations recognising the State of Palestine. They too had their share of oppression and first hand experiences with nazism.

The post that was taken from can be read by clicking on the following …. MOTHER RUSSIA KNOWS THE MEANING OF FASCISM AND OPPRESSION

But, today dear ‘Mother Russia’ showed its true colours …. by welcoming the King of Israeli Apartheid’s plans to expand his operations to the heart of Moscow;

It looks like money talks louder than any commitment to the people of Palestine. It’s not as if Leviev’s activities are not known, even UNICEF has refused to accept donations from him; UNICEF does discriminate when it comes to where they accept funds from to carry out their work…. they do not want blood money!

The UN children’s fund UNICEF has severed ties with an Israeli billionaire and financial backer due to his suspected involvement in building settlements in the West Bank, UNICEF said on Friday. Lev Leviev, a real estate and diamond mogul who is one of the richest men in Israel, has supported UNICEF with direct contributions and indirectly by sponsoring at least one UNICEF fund-raiser. 

He is chairman of Africa Israel Investments, a conglomerate whose units include Danya Cebus, which the Arab rights advocacy group Adalah-NY charges has carried out settlement construction, considered illegal by the United Nations.

UNICEF decided to review its relationship with Leviev after a campaign by Adalah-NY and found “at least a reasonable grounds for suspecting” that Leviev companies were building settlements in Palestinian territory, a UNICEF official said.

So, welcome ‘Mother Russia’ to the list of countries that says one thing but continues to do the opposite.
