After Jews Leave Russia is Dying

By Bernie on 24 Nov 2012

In response to my article Are There Enough Jews in Russia?, an anti-Semite and Russian apologist reader left this comment:

Russia is not getting worse, nowadays Russia is doing well because of the oil and gas prices, but of course they would be better if they didn't have their corrupt jewish government. As you said most of the Israel scientific advances are attributed to the stealing of researches made in ex-communist countries, the people of Russia are only guilty of being dreamers who thought that jewish Utopia coul[d] be made, they were just peasants whose minds were weak. But I like to think that Russia will be the next super power maybe with China and India, the globalmarket is turning into this region.

Another delusional idiot. As I wrote, "Most Russians are so stupid that they blame their country's high unemployment and horrible living conditions on the Jews when in actual fact, if their logic were correct, the economy of Russian should have improved now that there are millions of fewer Jews living there."

Here are the facts. If it were not for Jews, Russia would have had far fewer intellectual achievements. For example, more than half of all Russian Nobel Laureates are Jews. More than half of all the greatest Russian chess players are Jews. Garry Kasparov, the greatest chess player of all time is a Jew (1).

In the decade following the fall of the Berlin Wall, more than 40% of Russia's Jews left (2). The result? Russia is dying.

Capital is in flight, retail sales are abysmal, major industries are being nationalized, crops are failing, and two-thirds of Russians have no personal savings at all (3). This is what happens when the best and brightest of a country leave.

Life expectancy is dropping, the fertility rate is below replacement levels, the country is filled with alcoholics, the population is hurtling toward zero (4).

This is what happens when Jews leave a country.

Don't believe me? How about listening to Nicholas Eberstadt, who holds the Henry Wendt Chair in Political Economy at the American Enterprise Institute and is a Senior Adviser at the National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR). Here is a PDF documenting the present collapse of post-soviet Russia.



Listverse, 6 Sep 2009, Top 10 Greatest Chess Players in History

There is no doubt that throughout the history of chess there have been many superb players who have reshaped and redefined the way the game is played. This list is an attempt to examine and categorize the greatest of those. No doubt there are many worthy names that could be added, but here is the Top 10 who I believe have rightly earned their places as the greats. The criterion used is based upon a number of factors including dominance over contemporaries, length of career at the top, contributions to chess and individual flair and brilliance.

Garry Kasparov
Russia (1963-)

No other player has dominated as long or as strong as Garry Kasparov. His name is synonymous with chess. He became the youngest ever undisputed World Champion in 1985 at only 22, which he held until 1993 when a dispute with FIDE led him to set up his own organisation (PCA) and technically lost him the World Title, though most chess enthusiasts still considered him the unofficial World Champion during this period.


Israel National News, 25 Oct 2010, Russia's Jewish Population Fading Away?

Between 1989 and 2002 – the year of the most recent census survey -- some 40 percent of the Jewish population left Russia in a mass emigration, some of whom moved to Israel. However, according to Russian Chief Rabbi and Chabad emissary Rabbi Berel Lazar, many are now returning to Russia, in particular those Jews who had moved to Germany in the 1990s.

Nevertheless, by the 2002 census, there were only 233,000 Jews left in Russia, compared with 875,000 Jews who lived in the country in 1959, when the first census was taken following World War II.


Dying Russia Blog, 21 Nov 2012, Putinomics Continues to Grind Russia into Pulp

in russia even the dogs are poorThe Putin economy continues its slide into oblivion.

Last year Russia set a horrifying new record for capital flight. Well over $80 billion fled Russia for foreign shores. Amazingly, in the first three-quarters of this year Russian capital flight is $1 billion more than it was during the same period last year.

Retail spending is also rapidly declining in Russia, and with it GDP has begun to drop as well. Poor agricultural performance has led to soaring food prices, so Russians can’t afford as much consumer spending, and brutal new Kremlin taxes have begun to undermine their disposable income as well. Automobile sales are dropping faster than expected, and polls show that two-thirds of Russians have no personal savings at all, so they are helpless in the face of economic crisis.


the Telegraph, 23 Nov 2009, Let's face it: Russia is dying

The BBC reports that Mr Bill Browder, head of a company called Hermitage Capital and once the largest foreign investor in Russia, has now described that large and empty country as “essentially a criminal state”.


But can one simply give up on such a large and powerful country? The answer is that we may have to. It’s dying. The population is falling steadily; male life expectancy is already well below 60 (and considerably lower than that for anyone getting on the wrong side of the regime). The place is even more sodden with vodka than a British town centre on a Saturday morning.
