For those Jews enamored with Zelensky because he is Jewish, perhaps a dose of reality about Zelensky is in order “Zelensky Emerges as Jewish Hero in Ukraine”.

Just this month, Zelensky gave a group of Ukrainian officials an award named for Bohdan Khmelnitsky (1595-1657), one of most notorious antisemites in history.

He was responsible for the murder of 100,000 Jews, and the obliteration of 300 Jewish communities. Amelia M. Glasser in “Stories of Khmelnitsky, “writes” Jews have likened Khmelnitsky as the hetman under whom thousands of Jews were massacred to Haman and Hitler.” Yet Zelensky gives awards in Khmelnitsky’s name.

Further Zelensky consistently opposes the Jewish people of Israel at the United Nations:
1. The Ukraine voted in favor of the UNRWA resolutions.
2. The Ukraine abstained from the viciously anti-Israel “Report of the Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People and Other Arabs of the occupied Territories.”
3. The Ukraine voted in favor of the “Israeli Settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and the Syrian Golan” resolution which condemns Jews living in Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem.

With friends like Zelensky, the Jewish people do not need enemies.
