There have been some people who assumed that Zelensky is Jewish and therefore he cannot possibly be a Neo-Nazi. Many in Israel are deeply disturbed by his claims to be Jewish when he married a non-Jew and his children are baptized in the Russian Orthodox Church he wants now banned. Zelensky before the war would not comment about being Jewish for he was certainly not a practicing Jew. He would not comment on being a Jew before his election.
Many are comparing Zelensky to George Soros who is also a non-practicing Jew who even helped the Nazis seize Jews, send them to the death camps, and confiscated their property. He also admitted he did not believe in God. Soros has been behind funding Zelensky who played a TV role of a comedian becoming president and they put money behind him to turn that role into reality. Those who think Zelensky cannot possibly be a Neo-Nazi fail to look at the facts and assume the Nazis were only exterminating Jews.
Since the war, Zelensky has been playing the Jewish card to get money from Israel and to try to pretend he is not a Neo-Nazi which means a “new” version of Nazism that believes still in ethnic cleansing, but their targets are Russians, not Jews. When it comes to the total number of deaths one person is responsible for, Hitler actually comes third after Stalin and Mao, but if we include revolutions, then Karl Marx is responsible for over 200 million. This seems to be the goal of the World Economic Forum to rise to the top of the list to also reduce the population so Bill Gates can sleep at night.
The Jewish community of Mariupol in Ukraine dates to the mid-19th century. The roughly 10,000 Jews were living in the city in 1941 and were nearly exterminated by the Ukrainian Nazis. Many of the Ukrainian Jews who did not move to Israel, moved to the Donbas where Russians were never part of the Holocaust. Zelensky’s civil war against the Donbas has led to at least 1.4 million Donbas residents being displaced, and at least 75,000 fled to Russia (2019-05-UNHCR-UKRAINE-Operational-Update-FINAL). Zelensky will say anything for money. He addressed the Israeli government and pretended that Ukraine is fighting for its life comparing it to the Holocaust. Many have found this to be a real disgrace.
First of all, making such a statement that Zelensky cannot be a Neo-Nazi demonstrates that they really have listened only to the propaganda about Hitler and the Jews. Hitler was engaged in eugenics and that was NOT confined to the Jews. While the overwhelming account of the Nazis was their extermination of the Jews, they were not the only people targeted. The German Nazis also engaged in the genocide of European Roma (Gypsies). He also dragged invalid World War I soldiers from their beds and exterminated them for they were a burden on the state to support.
The Ukrainian Nazis were on board with the German Nazis and were also engaged in this ethnic cleansing but they targeted Jews, Polish, and Russians. I strongly urge you to watch Oliver Stone’s documentary Ukraine on Fire which covers the Ukrainian Nazi movement. The US never prosecuted the Ukrainian Nazis for the slaughter of countless Jews, Polish, and Russians because they were also killing Russians. Hence, in the old story, their enemy is my friend. Only the Germans were prosecuted for their acts against the Jews at Nuremberg – no Ukrainians.
The Bottomline is that I believe Zelensky is a FRAUD and rejected being a Jew but uses that for-profit now. Zelensky is playing the Jewish card for the money and to pretend he is somehow not a Neo-Nazi yet today the Ukrainian Neo-Nazis are not about killing Jews – only Russians and if they happen to be Jewish that is no exception. In 1959 Ukraine had 840,000 Jews, a decrease of almost 70% from 1941 totals (within Ukraine’s current borders). Post-1991 and the collapse of the Soviet Union, the majority of the Jews who remained in Ukraine in 1989 left the country migrating to Israel but Zelensky abandoned Judaism and remained. Antisemitic graffiti and violence against Jews had remained a problem in Ukraine. It is no wonder why he abandoned being a Jew, married a non-Jew, and baptized his children. Now he is a Jew to the pretend he is not a Neo-Nazi out to hate Russians?
Jesse Edberg in an article titled ‘Zelensky is Not a Jewish Hero’ in the Times of Israel wrote:
It seems like Jewish organizations cannot bend over backward fast enough to praise Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who happens to be Jewish, as the Jewish hero of our time. While there is surely something admirable in leading a country through a staling invasion by an economic third-world country, I don’t see Zelenskyy as this generation’s Jewish hero, or any Jewish hero at all.
I don’t see the Jewish heroism in serving a foreign power and foreign interests. I don’t see the Jewish heroism in intermarrying. I don’t see the Jewish heroism in Baptizing one’s children. I don’t see the Jewish heroism in consistently voting against Israel in openly antisemitic, targeted UN resolutions. I don’t see the Jewish heroism in allyship with neo-Nazis. I don’t see the Jewish heroism in Holocaust trivialization, distortion, and denial.
Yes, Volodymyr Zelenskyy does not behave in the way one would expect a Jewish hero to behave. He married a non-Jewish woman named Olena in 2003 and Baptized their children in a Russian Orthodox Church. He openly celebrates such holidays as “the Day of Christianization of Kievan Rus-Ukraine,” a holiday marking the establishment of Christianity as the official region of Kievan Rus in 987, and, by all accounts, religiously identifies as a Christian, not a Jew.
Since taking office in 2019, Zelenskyy has maintained a firm anti-Israel stance, specifically on the UN floor. In 2020 alone, Ukraine voted for several UNRWA-affirming UN resolutions, voted in favor of condemning Israeli “occupation” of Judea and Samaria, Israeli “occupation” of Jerusalem, and Israeli “occupation” of “the occupied Syrian Golan.” For the resolution to launch a formal UN investigation into suggested Israeli “human rights abuses,” suggesting Israel as an apartheid, perhaps even a genocidal power, Zelenskyy’s Ukraine was kind enough to abstain.
The way Zelenskyy entered the office is equally disqualifying towards his proposed status as a Jewish hero. In Ukraine, a country rife with antisemitism historically and today, Zelenskyy needed all the help he could get to get elected. He got this help largely from Ukrainian neo-Nazis and their allies, like political kingmaker Arsten Avakov, willing to compromise to present a united front against Russia. Even today, Zelenskyy continues to pay homage to his coalition, donning the Nazi Iron Cross in interviews and speeches and praise of Ukrainian Nazi and Holocaust collaborator Stepan Bandera.
