Russia's Chabad Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar, the personal Court Jew of Vladamir Putin has once again lept to his patron's defense, criticizing the US State Department Report On Global Antisemitism.
The rabbi said hooligans who had attempted to destroy a Jewish community center in Ulyanovsk were recently arrested …
Here is what the State Department report actually says about that attack:
On April 22, eight skinheads stormed the Ulyanovsk Jewish Center screaming, "don't pollute our land," smashing windows, and tearing down Jewish symbols as Jewish women and children hid inside. No one was injured, but police failed to respond quickly, arriving 40 minutes after they were called. A member of the extremist National Bolshevik Party later was arrested in connection with the attack. The investigation was ongoing at year's end, but it was suspected that both events were prompted by the anniversary of Hitler's birthday.
