Israel warns Moscow about ‘consequences’ amid Jewish Agency row

Samizdat | July 24, 2022

The anticipated closure of The Jewish Agency in Russia will have a serious impact on Russia-Israel relations, Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid warned on Sunday. The quasi-governmental organization, which promotes the repatriation of Jews to Israel, has been targeted by Russia’s Justice ministry over alleged violations of local law.

“Prime Minister Lapid said in the meeting that ties with Russia are important to Israel. The Jewish community in Russia is large and important and comes up in every diplomatic discussion with the administration in Moscow,” the PM’s office said in a statement.

“Closing the Jewish Agency’s offices would be a grave event, which will have consequences on those ties.”

Earlier this week, a Moscow court said it had received a formal request from the Justice Ministry to liquidate the Russian branch of the agency.

While the exact nature of the allegations the agency faces has not been made public, Israeli media reported the organization had earlier this month received a warning from the ministry over a breach of laws related to data storage and protection. The pretrial hearing on the case, which may result in a ban on the agency, is scheduled for Thursday.

Responding to the situation around the organization, Israel expressed readiness to immediately dispatch a diplomatic delegation to Russia to “to ensure the continuation” of the group’s activities in the country. The readiness for talks was reiterated on Sunday, with the PM’s office confirming the delegation would be ready to set out for Moscow as soon as “it receives Russian approval for the talks.”

The Jewish Agency, founded in late 1920, first assisted in “repatriating” Jews to Palestinian lands, and to the state of Israel later on. In Russia, the organization maintains a large network, with its officers and partners operating in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other major cities across the country.

  1. The Bolsheviks ride again! A strike force readies for take off!

    Due any hour, now, to land in Moscow, to consist of Pollard, of Jeffrey Epstein (he’s not really dead, you see), of Ghislane Maxwell (that’s a double in the jail cell, you see), of Roman Polanski (he didn’t do it, you see), of the dancing art students. Maybe Ehud Barak, to keep it all well funded.

    The plane will be loaded with money. Billions of it. Their most formidable weapon. But it will be counterfeit, so by way of deception no loss to Israel, since the Russkies don’t know לְחַרְבֵּן, it’ll all be charged to the Kremlin.
