There’s an old saying that ‘politics makes for strange bedfellows’ …..
Could this be the case of a strange connection between Woody Allen and Vladamir Putin?
One is on the list of nominees for the Nobel Peace Prize … where he obviously wants to stay, while the other is a long standing member of the infamous S H I T List which he seems not too happy about.
*
Putin wants to stay on the list he’s on …. but he must gain support from zion to win the Prize …. at the same time possibly even try to get support from Russia’s LGBT Community for his archaic positions against them.

Here’s what’s happening in Russia;

Russian Jewish Region’s ‘Gay’ Flag Is Kosher!

By Anne Cohen

The Kremlin’s self-styled flag experts have declared that the flag of Russia’s Jewish Autonomous Region —which bears an uncanny resemblance to the rainbow gay pride symbol — is in fact 100% kosher, Buzzfeed World reported.

The flag, designed in 1996 for the Birobidzhan region, boasts colorful stripes on a white background. It was under review for its possible violation of Russia’s ban on LGBT propaganda.

“Regarding the similarity of this flag with the symbol of the gay movement, we explain that not every rainbow image is linked to sexual orientation,” Georgy Vilinbakhov, a Kremlin advisor, wrote in a letter published by local website EAOMedia.ru.

“Obviously, the above described flag, the flag of the Jewish Autonomous Region, whose foundation is a white cloth, has nothing to do with that,” he wrote. “This flag does not contradict the current law of the Russian Federation and so there is no basis to cancel or change it.”

The Jewish Autonomous Oblast, or region, was designated by Stalinist Soviet authorities in 1934 as a “Jewish socialist republic.”

Interviewed by the same local outlet, the flag’s creator, Alexander Valyaev defended his design. “On its flag the gay movement uses seven stripes, not six,” he pointed out. “The rainbow is a divine symbol, taken from the Bible. God threw the rainbow from the sky into the wilderness of the desert as a symbol of hope.”

Woody Allen on Israel Criticism, Anti-Semitism

The filmmaker drops some knowledge in an interview with Channel 2 Israel

While promoting his latest film Blue Jasmine in France, Woody Allen was interviewed by Israel’s Channel Two. As the Times of Israel reported, when the conversation turned to life in America and anti-Semitism, Allen had some noteworthy remarks. Specifically, he was asked whether it’s difficult to be a Jew in America today, an especially curious query coming from an Israeli media outlet on assignment in France, two places dealing heavily with the issue.

“No, I don’t think so. By the low standards of tolerance for Jews all over the world, America’s been a very tolerant country.”

He added:

“I do feel there are many people that disguise their negative feelings toward Jews, disguise it as anti-Israel criticism, political criticism, when in fact what they really mean is that they don’t like Jews.”

We’ve come a long way from Alvy Singer in Annie Hall.
