Let My People Go!

By Gldmeier @gldmeier

The Jerusalem post is reporting that the Russian government has ordered the Jewish Agency to cease all activity and operations within Russia. There are concerns that this will affect thousands of Russians who are waiting to make aliya.
Some are dredging up history and suggesting this might be the start of another Iron Curtain situation coming into effect in Russia. Anonymous sources from within the Jewish community talk about arrests and that people in the community fear for their lives. There is no word yet the Jewish activity within Russia is being curtailed, but locking the gates is a bad start.
All I can say is that I hope this is an exaggeration. even if Putin is over-reacting and has gone perhaps a bit crazy due to the ongoing war with Ukraine, I hope he wont be crazy enough to bring us back to the days of Soviet Russia and the Iron Curtain.
