Monument to Menachem Begin unveiled in Brest
Monument to Menachem Begin unveiled in Brest
31.10.2013

The monument to Menachem Begin, Nobel Peace Prize winner, seventh Prime Minister of Israel, was unveiled in his hometown of Brest on 31 October.

The monument has been built in the Brest historic downtown near the house that used to be the school which Menachem Begin attended. It has the inscription in Hebrew, Belarusian and English: "Menachem Begin. Novel Prize Winner. Born in Brest. Leader of Israel”.

“We pay tribute to the people who made a contribution to history and who have glorified our city. Menachem Begin is certainly among such people. Here he grew up. Here his political views formed. This monument was erected on the initiative of the Jewish community, with the support of the local authorities and with the consent of the head of state. We could say that in such a way Menachem Begin, or rather the memory of him returns to the city where he was born,” said Chairman of the Brest City Council Alexander Palyshenkov.

The erection of the monument to Menachem Begin in his homeland is a unique event, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Israel to Belarus Yosef Shagal said. This is the first monument to an Israeli politician in a post-Soviet country. "The man's name has gone down in the history of the State of Israel in golden letters. Menachem Begin managed to accomplish what seemed impossible. In 1979, thanks to his efforts, Israel and Egypt reached a peace agreement, known as Camp David Accords, for which he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize,” Yosef Shagal said.

The diplomat read out a welcome letter from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in which the Prime Minister thanked the Belarusian people and leadership for the respect to the memory of Menachem Begin as one of the outstanding representatives of the Jewish people. Yosef Shagal also expressed confidence that this will contribute to further rapprochement and strengthening of ties between the two countries.

And naive me thought they had other problems over there than erecting monuments to celebrate Jewish terrorists.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

Why not, the money for the monument were given by the ZOG, and not by the state anyway.

Erecting monuments to bourgeois nationalists is generally a good thing. It's a bit abnormal that such a good trend began with a Jewish nationalist, though.

Shame they missed out Yiddish, which his family would actually have spoken there. I suppose the bit in bold would be some variant of 'Fuehrer', though... LOL

How many of the buggers have you got left there, by the way, WR? Did they all piss off to the Саюзная дзяржава of the USA and Israel, or have some stuck around to piss you off for the hell of it?

Some did: 12,926 according to census 2009, but the number is falling quickly. The Jewish community isn't noticeable. The prominent ones I can think of are Eduard Khanok, unpleasant person and sh*tty composer, and Pavel Yakubovich, the editor of Sovietskaya Byelorussia, the main state newspaper.

A couple of years ago Luka mentioned somewhere that 'Jews can't keep clean places where they live' or something. After that Yakubovich was sent to Israel to say sorry and that Luka had not really meant that. LOL

I rememeber, yeah! Big Grin I think he was just chatting in his conversational off-guard way - so endearing after decades of listening to PR trained Western politicians! - and happened to recall something offhand like 'Heh, but do you remember what a mess it used to be on XXX street, when they were still living there?' You lads don't know how lucky you are, in Luka. ;)

My father used to tell me that when he was out in Palestine in 1945, Begin was the one they were looking for.

Quote:Belarus president pans Minsk governor for not taking Jews ‘under control’

Leader of Eastern European country makes remarks in reference to Jewish director of popular online publication who has criticized President Lukashenko's policies.

MINSK - Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko criticized on Wednesday a Jewish regional governor in Belarus for not taking the country's Jewish population "under control" as he had ordered.

In a state-of-the-nation address, Lukashenko expressed annoyance that a popular online publication, which has a Jewish director, had criticized his decree imposing a tax on people who worked fewer than 183 days a year.

Addressing the Minsk region governor Semyon Shapiro by name, Lukashenko said the head of the tut.by website, Yuri Zisser, was “not behaving correctly”.

“I told you a year ago to take all the Jews of Belarus under control,” said the president, a leader who often ruffles feathers with his impromptu comments.

A 2009 census said Jews made up 0.14 percent of Belarus's 9.5 million population.

Having admonished Shapiro, Lukashenko, who has ruled the small ex-Soviet country with an iron fist since 1994, then poked fun at him, crediting his religious fervor with producing a favorable rainfall in the region.

“Shapiro prayed in the synagogue. There was rain only in Minsk region. Semyon Borisovich (Shapiro) is a good guy,” Lukashenko said.

Returning to the theme at the end of a three-hour summary of the economy and Belarus's international standing, he praised the Jewish population for its role in resistance to Nazi occupation during World War Two, when an estimated 800,000 local Jews died.

He went on to describe the Jews as being “white boned” meaning they did not like to do menial work. “They don't like to get their hands dirty or fight, but they did get their hands dirty with us!”

Zisser, whose online information outlet is the most powerful in Belarus, said he was puzzled by Lukashenko's remarks.

“Officials often express various opinions to us, often offensive ones. ... But we can not distort information to suit somebody's wishes,” he told Reuters.

The head of a Belarussian Jewish association, Borys Herzen, played down the importance of Lukashenko's comments.

“Lukashenko is an emotional person and often does not express himself very elegantly ... In fact we do not see here in Belarus signs of any anti-Semitism,” Herzen told Reuters.

Lukashenko caused a stir in 2007 when he said that Jews had turned the city of Bobruisk “into a pigsty”. He subsequently sent a delegation to Israel on a damage-limitation trip.

I think it's good. We need more tributes to successful fascistoid leaders who built enduring, thriving ethnostates for their people. All Europeans should come and learn. ;)

But Israel is neither thriving nor an ethnostate, no matter how many walls the Zionists will put around them. Sure, they tried, but as the Jewish academicians did not want to do menial jobs the Arab reconquista is only a question of time.
