If it makes anyone feel better, that Jew registering letter is looking more and more like a sham, possibly a scam by people hoping to grab quick registration fees:

quote:

But even if it looked like the start of some racist purge, the flier was more likely part of an ill-conceived extortion plot or a propaganda ploy against the separatists. For one thing, the sign-off at the bottom of the flier — “Yours, the People’s Governor of Donetsk, Denis Pushilin” — seemed off. This was a reference to the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic, which was formed a week and a half ago by a group of armed separatists who seized the headquarters of the regional government. Theirs is perhaps the smallest breakaway republic in the world, as its territory is confined to that one building and a small patch of the plaza around it. Since April 7, they have barricaded themselves inside with a cache of weapons and demanded a referendum on secession from Ukraine. At the bottom of the flier was a reproduction of the stamp these separatists use on the press badges they have issued to journalists.

Denis Pushilin, however, is not the man who calls himself the “People’s Governor” of this pseudo-state. That would be Pavel Gubarev, who bestowed that title on himself in early March, during a separatist rally in the center of Donetsk. Three days later, he was arrested on charges of separatism and taken to jail in Kiev, where he remains. The alleged author of the anti-Semitic flier, Pushilin, is his ally and comrade-in-arms. But he has never gone by the title of “People’s Governor.” (His preferred title is the “co-chairman of the temporary coalition government” that he and his allies declared inside that building.) For his part, Pushilin denied on Thursday that he or his organization had anything to do with these fliers. “In reality this is a fake, and a pretty unsuccessful one,” Pushilin told the news network Russia Today. “It was all done with Photoshop.”

I'm quite surprised at the way several things in that article are worded, especially some that are direct quotes:

Polish defense minister Tomasz Siemoniak posted:

Poland will play a leading regional role, “under U.S. patronage”

Polish defense minister Tomasz Siemoniak posted:

“The idea until recently was that there were no more threats in Europe and no need for a U.S. presence in Europe any more[.] Events show that what is needed is a re-pivot, and that Europe was safe and secure because America was in Europe.”

the article posted:

The strongest impetus, he said, is not even Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea, but President Vladimir Putin’s bald lies about Russian actions there and his exposition of a new doctrine allowing Russia to intervene in any country where Russian-speaking populations are, in Russia’s judgment, under threat. This poses a potential danger to the Baltic nations, which are members of NATO, and even more to Moldova, Belarus and central Asian nations that are not, he said.

The Poles have always been extremely US-friendly and (shockingly) a little distrustful of the major West Euro powers. They've talked about NATO as if the US were the only relevant entity for some time now.

Also Putin's use of 'Novorossiya' to describe Ukraine implies he's hearkening back to Moscovy, which leads to Kievan Rus, which includes chunks of modern-day Poland. Here is a good summary if (like me) your knowledge of East Euro political history comes mostly from Crusader Kings II:

Not surprising that Poland distrusts the major Western Euro powers.
Poland has a long-rear end history of being dicked over by Western Euro powers. And then double-dicked over by territory-adjustments & war.

Ok I'll bite. There is a point there.

Wiktionary posted:

Terrorism (usually uncountable, plural terrorisms)
- The deliberate commission of an act of violence to create an emotional response through the suffering of the victims in the furtherance of a political or social agenda.
- Violence against civilians to achieve military or political objectives.
- A form of psychological manipulation through warfare to the purpose of political or religious gains, by means of deliberately creating a climate of fear amongst the inhabitants of a specific geographical region.

The general rule used to divide 'terrorists' from otherwise 'rebels' or 'freedom fighters' is whether they attack civilian targets. You can debate whether 'civilian' more broadly means 'non-state' or if it more specifically means 'non-military', but it's worth pointing out that distinction only really matters in a handful of Westernized states like the US with a no-poo poo non-military police force, and is irrelevant in places like, say, Egypt, where the 'police' are just an army more focused on internal use.

I'm not going to read into that D&D thread to figure out who they're talking about and whether they're actually 'terrorists' or not. But using the word to somehow cover OBL, whoever the hell is in East Ukraine, and the loving Bundy Ranch means it's been stretched to meaninglessness. Much like 'fascist', which also gets thrown around with wild abandon.
