On Tuesday, the Russian Federation of Jewish Communities (Israel Lobby) accused the Deputy Speaker of Russian Parliament (Duma) Pyotr Tolstoy of spreading hatred toward Russian Jews and called on Vladimir Putin to expel him from the Duma.
Tolstoy, a member of Putin’s ruling United Russia party, said on Monday at a press conference that “the people who are the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of those who pulled down our churches, and jumped out from the Jewish Pale of Settlement to the revolver in 1917, and today are working in very respectable places – on the radio, in the legislatures, continue the work of their grandfathers and great-grandfathers.”
“We usually hear such statements from irresponsible instigators of antisemitic campaigns. But when we hear this from the mouth of the State Duma deputy Speaker at an official press conference, it directly undermine inter-ethnic peace in the country and stir up religious tension,” said Alexander Boroda, president FJC in a statement. He also accused Tolstoy of uttering the “same old, antismitic myths.”
Tolstoy responded to Boroda’s whining on social network, saying: “Only people with a sick imagination, who do not know the history of this country, can see in his statement, the signs of hatred toward Jews. Someone obviously likes to label people antisemites in a bid to cause national rift.”
Pyotr Tolstoy is great-great grandson of the Russian philosopher Count Leo Tolstoy (d. 1910). He was the author of book, Rule of Prophet Muhammad, War and Peace, and The Cossacks: A Tale of the Caucasus in 1852. Leo studied Arabic language and Holy Qur’an.
“After I have read the Qur’an, I realized that all what humanity needs is this heavenly law. The legislation of Qur’an will spread all over the world, because it agrees with the mind, logic and wisdom,” wrote Leo Tolstoy.
On February 6, 2014, MP Oleg Bolychev, member of Vladimir Putin’s ruling United Russia party at the regional parliament in Kaliningrad accused Russian Jews for destroying Russia twice: “They destroyed our country in 1917, and then destroyed our country in 1991.”
On June 17, 2013, Russian president Vladimir Putin told a Jewish gathering at Moscow Jewish Museum that 80 to 85 % of the first Soviet government members were Jewish.
In January 2016, Putin Accused Lenin of murdering last Tsar along with his family and servants.
The Christian majority Russia was systematically destroyed by four Jews – Karl Marx (d. 1883), Friedrich Engels (d. 1895), Vladimir Lenin (d. 1928), and Leon Trotsky (d. 1940) by replacing Orthodox Christian monarchy with atheist Communism, during which 66 million Russian Christians were put to death in the gulags run by the Cheka Jews.
