1. The Background
Ukraine and Russia
UKRAINIAN BACKGROUND. What is Happening?
The Ukraine borders Russia. It was once part of Russia. Part of the Ukraine are populated by people who identify as Russian. Two regions of the Ukraine bordering Russia have seceded and wish to unite with Russia. The Ukraine is seeking to tighten its ties with the west including joining NATO.
On 22 February 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered military forces to enter the breakaway Ukrainian republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, calling the act a "peacekeeping mission". Putin also officially recognized Donetsk and Luhansk as sovereign states, fully independent from the Ukrainian government. In the early hours of 24 February 2022, Putin announced what he called a "special military operation" to "demilitarise and de-Nazify" Ukraine, launching a large-scale invasion of the country.
The alleged Nazi character of the Ukraine is often referred to by the Russians. They have declared that a desire to de-Nazify the Ukraine is one of the reasons they have invaded the country.
There is a Ukrainian Army Unit that does have Nazi ties. Relatively speaking it may not be that large and the Nazis within it may not be that influential but it does exist. It has has a degree of official sanction.

(b) The Facts on 'De-Nazifying' Ukraine
Ukrainian nationalists and national heroes in the past had a habit of attacking Jews.
The Cossack leader Bohdan Zynoviy Mykhailovych Khmelnytsky (c. 1595 - 1657) was responsible for the "Khmelnytsky Uprising" that led to the deaths of an estimated 18,000 -100,000 Jews. Many of the victims were buried alive, cut to pieces or forced to kill one another.
Today Khmelnytsky is a Ukrainian national hero. Statues are raised to him in public places and his image appears on money bills. A government award for public service is named after him, "The Order of Bohdan Khmelnytsky."
Later events repeated the pattern of periodic attacked on Jews, e.g.
an estimated 31,071 Jews were killed between 1918 and 1920. During the establishment of the Ukrainian People's Republic (1917-21), pogroms were perpetrated on Ukrainian territory. In Ukraine, the number of civilian Jews killed during the period was estimated at between 35,000 and 50,000.
The Ukrainian PM,
Volodymyr Zelenskyy, b. 1978, was born to Jewish parents. He has defended the adulation of Khmelnytsky saying it is important to Ukrainian nationalism. His wife is a Christian. Zelensky has said he considers religion to be a private affair and has christened his children in the Greek Orthodox tradition, according to Ukrainian media.
The Russians for their part are also at times anti-Jewish. Nevertheless, under Putin this has been restrained. Russian claims against the Nazi-type elements in Ukrainian official and social life are not without foundation.
2. The Remarks of Russian FM Sergey Lavrov.
The Russian Foreign Minister recently spoke of the Ukrainian Nazi connections. He mentioned the possibility the Hitler himself had Jewish blood.
May 1, 2022
Sergey Viktorovich Lavrov (born 1950), has served as the Foreign Minister of Russia since 2004.
He was born to an Armenian father from Tbilisi, Georgian SSR, and a Russian mother from Noginsk.
On 1 May 2022, in an interview with the Italian television broadcaster Rete 4, after being asked why Russia claimed it needed to "denazify" Ukraine if its president was Jewish, Lavrov responded by suggesting that Adolf Hitler, like Volodymyr Zelenskyy, had Jewish heritage, saying:
# 'So when they say "How can Nazification exist if we're Jewish?" In my opinion, Hitler also had Jewish origins, so it doesn't mean absolutely anything. For some time we have heard from the Jewish people that the biggest antisemites were Jewish,' #
Israeli prime minister Naftali Bennett condemned Lavrov's comments and said that "using the Holocaust of the Jewish people as a political tool must cease immediately".
Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said that Russia's envoy had been subjected to a 'tough conversation' after being summoned to the Foreign Ministry on Monday, 'since it is unforgivable, unforgivable to blame Jews for their own Holocaust.
'Hitler was not Jewish and Jews did not murder my grandfather in Mauthausen,' he said. 'The Nazis did it, and all of these comparisons to the Nazis are unforgivable and infuriating.'
Lapid added that Russia 'needs to apologize to the Jews, to the memory of those who were killed.' He suggested that Lavrov 'read a history book' instead of spreading false 'antisemitic rumors.'
Lapid himself heads a political party that incites against Hareidi Jews in Israel. His father Yosef "Tommy" Lapid was an Israeli radio and television presenter, playwright, journalist, politician and government minister who "fiercely opposed the ultra-Orthodox political parties and actively sought to exclude any religious observance from the legal structure of the Israeli State."
Some things may run in the family!
3. Was Lavrov Correct?
Many Leading anti-Semites in History have been at least partly Jewish.
Thomas of Torquemada, was a Castilian Dominican friar and first Grand Inquisitor in the late 1400. he used torture to extract confessions, and advocated that those deemed guilty be burned at the stake. Torquemada's name has become synonymous with cruelty, religious intolerance and fanaticism. Many of his victims were Anusim i.e. people of Jewish descent believed to still keep Jewish practices in secret. He is believed to have been of Jewish descent.
Members of the Yevsektsiya. This was a Jewish section of the Soviet Communist Party. These sections were established in fall of 1918 with consent of Vladimir Lenin to carry communist revolution to the Jewish masses. They forced Jews in Russia to stop practising Judaism. Rabbis were exiled to Siberia or killed. Synagogues were converted to clubs or Communist centers.
4. Was Hitler Partly Jewish?
Was research ever done to reveal if Adolf Hitler was Jewish?
Julius Streicher (1885-1946) was a good friend of Adolf Hitler. Hitler said that the newspaper of Streicher was the only one he read from one end to the other. Streicher was a pedophile, a sadistic torturer, and a rapist who boasted about it. Hitler protected him. The Allies hanged Streicher at Nuremburg in 1946.
Julius Streicher is quoted as saying:
"You have to have a good dose of Jewish blood in your veins to hate that race properly," Source: Randall L. Bytwerk, "Julius Streicher, The man who persuaded a nation to hate Jews," USA, 1983, p.48.
The name Adolf Hitler inscribed in Hebrew characters was reportedly found in a Jewish cemetery in Bucharest, Rumania. The London Daily Mirror in 1933 published a picture of the gravestone.
#... this picture sufficiently worried Hitler that he had the Nazi law defining Jewishness written to exclude Jesus Christ and himself. # Is this correct? See: Was Hitler Jewish?
A study of male relatives of Hitler showed a predominance of YHaplogroup E1b1b1. This is quite common among Jews (from ca. 20% in Ashkenazim and up to 40% in Sephardi communities) but also frequent in North African Berbers, Greeks, and other peoples.
Haplogroup E1b1b (Y-DNA) # E1b1b is found at high frequencies in Morocco (over 80%), Somalia (80%), Ethiopia (40% to 80%), Tunisia (70%), Algeria (60%), Egypt (40%), Jordan (25%), Palestine (20%), and Lebanon (17.5%). On the European continent it has the highest concentration in Kosovo (over 45%), Albania and Montenegro (both 27%), Bulgaria (23%), Macedonia and Greece (both 21%), Cyprus (20%), Sicily (20%), South Italy (18.5%), Serbia (18%) and Romania (15%). Ashkenazi Jews have approximately 20% of E1b1b, which falls mostly under specific clades of E-M123. #
The father of Adolf, Alois Hitler, was born to an unknown father in 1837. The mother of Alois was Maria Schicklgruber. The possibility that Maria may have been impregnated by a Jew was examined by Hans Frank.
Like many early Nazis, Frank was a former member of the esoteric Thule Society. Frank had been associated with Hitler almost from the beginning. Hans Frank (1900-1946) acted as the personal lawyer of Adolf Hitler. At one stage he was Minister of Justice for Bavaria. Later he became the Nazi Governor of part of Poland and was responsible for the murder of 100s of thousands of Poles and Jews. Before he died Frank expressed remorse for what he had done and returned to Roman Catholicism.
According to Frank in 1930 he had been told by Hitler that his nephew William Patrick Hitler (the son of his half-brother) was trying to blackmail him. William Patrick claimed to have evidence that the father of Alois (father of Adolf) was a Jew. Hitler asked Frank to investigate the matter. Frank found out that Leopold Frankenberger, the young son of the employer of Maria Schicklgruber (the grandmother of Adolf), may have fathered Alois. The family of Leopold Frankenberger was Jewish. This affair occurred in the town of Graz in the Austrian Province of Styria. Styria is in the southeast of Austria bordering Slovenia. Alois was born in Strone near Dollersheim in northern Austria. When the Germans took over Austria all inhabitants of Dollersheim and Strone were evacuated. The site by order of Hitler was used for military training virtually ensuring its devastation. Could it be that Adolf was afraid of something? Frank told Hitler that Frankenburger could not be the father of Alois but that Maria and the man she later married pretended he was. Consequently they received regular payments from the Frankenburger family to support the child. Frank found correspondence confirming this.
The account of Frank in general is doubted but there is probably something to it. It was objected in the past that what Frank said could not be true since Jews had been expelled from Styria since the 1400s and had not returned. This has since been shown to be incorrect. Some Jews were in the area at the time in question. Remember that to be Jewish in the eyes of Hitler and Frank does not mean that the Jews had to attend the local synagogue. They could have been Christians of Jewish descent. It could be that a group of Converted Jews had settled in the area. These Jews may have belonged to the Frankist sect found by Jacob Frank. Possible Jewish antecedents (if they ever existed) of Hitler and some of his cronies should perhaps be sought among descendants of followers of Shabtai Zvi and Jacob Frank. The subject has not been examined in depth. Jews are not eager to reveal that Hitler may have been related to them. Germans in their heart of hearts often still admire Hitler and prefer to remeber him as entirely "Aryan." Many Gentiles in Europe share this sentiment. Hitler was responsible for the Holocaust. Without him it might not have gone into effect. Nevertheless in doing what he did concerning the Jews he gave expression to a centuries old national goal of the German People.
The names Frank, and Frankenburger and the connections with the Thule Society and they with the Baktashi of Turkey and of the early Nazis suggest some kind of Link to the Jewish false Messiah, Shabtai Zvi, and the person who claimed to be his re-incarantion, Jacob Frank.
5. Who Were Shabtai Zvi and Jacob Frank?
Shabtai Zevi (1626-1676) claimed to be the Messiah. As a child his testicles had been damaged and he suffered from epileptic fits. He held that in order to hasten the Redemption one needed to commit sin but at first this aspect of his teachings was not widely known. At one stage he had many followers throughout the Jewish Diaspora. Most of them were not aware at first of his teachings advocating the doing of evil. Eventually in Turkey Shabtai converted to Islam along with some of his adherents. The Ottoman Muslims however whose protection he had sought found him still associating with Religious Jews so they banished him. He had followers who remained among the Turks as Muslims but secretly practiced aspects of their religion which was not Jewish but an invention of their own. They still exist and are known as the "Donmeh." [Similar antinominian groups existed among the Turkish "Baktashi" sects with whom the Donmeh intermixed. The Baktashi appear to be continuatio of the old pagan mysterious relgions that once prevailed in their area. They received an Islamic veneer but continued the old doctrines!] Even after the apostasy of Shabtai Zvi he still retained some followers among Conventional Jews. There were different groups of Shabtaians some, but not necessarily all, of which were anti-nominian i.e. they deliberately committed transgressions. [Gershom Scholem (1897-1982) authored famous studies of Shbtai Zvi and his offshoots.] Jacob Frank was to continue where Shabtai left off.
Jacob Joseph Frank (probably originally known as Jakub Lejbowicz, 1726 - 1791) was born in West Ukraine when it was part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. He had been born into a wealthy family that followed Shabtai Zvi. He presented himself as the reincarnation of the false messiah Shabtai Zvi. Frank was active in the southern Ukrainian provinces of Podolia and Galicia. Frank traveled through Ottoman Turkish territories, made contact with members of the Donmeh and learned from them. In the Ukraine, Frank was active among others of like persuasion. The local Rabbis took action against Frank and his followers excommunicating and ostracizing them. Frank he sought the protection of the Catholic Bishop of Kamieniec Podolski, Poland. He conducted an incitement against Religious Jews leading to the officials burning 10,000 volumes of the Talmud. The Frankists claimed that Religious Jews killed Gentile children. This false calumny, was to be repeated by the Nazis and anti-Semites elsewhere. It placed the whole of the Jewish People in danger. Most of the Frankists converted to Christianity especially Catholicism. After being imprisoned by the Church for 15 years on charges of heresy Frank was released. He moved to Vienna, Austria, with his daughter Eve. From there they moved to Offenbach (near Frankfort) in southern Germany. The Frankists under Frank and his daughter had been in contact with the royalties of Austro-Hungary, Prussia, and Russia. When Frank died his daughter took over leadership of the movement. Eventually Eva Frank fled from her creditors. She and her followers disappeared among the Gentile populations of Europe. Other Frankists remained among the Jews and according to Gershom Scholem helped create the Jewish Reform movement.
Was Hitler descended from the Frankists?
We have no real proof that Hitler was related to Jacob Frank other than the involvement of Hans Frank and the name Frankenberger. Jacob Frank and his followers were last seen in the general area of Southern Germany and Austria. They sought the destruction of the Jewish People (apart from themselves) and they believed in doing evil for its own sake. Hans Frank, the friend and lawyer of Hitler, himself had come from approximately the same general area that Jacob Frank had ended his life in and he bore the same name.
Hans Frank had been a member of the Thule Society. This was a secret organization with links to groups in Turkey that may also have been influenced by Shabtai Zvi and Jacob Frank. Members of the Thule Society founded the Nazi Party. Its founder, Rudolf von Sebottendorff (1875-1945) claimed to have received his instructions in Turkey from a Baktashi holy man. The Baktashi are beleived to have influenced Shabtai Zvi and followers of Zvi (after becoming nominally Muslims) tended to a degree to intermarry with them. The Nazi elite were in effect offshoots of the Baktashi with the additional overlay of pseudo-Scientific Aryan supremacy! Himmler openly worshipped Lucifer! They were all devil-worshippers in one form or other!
6. The Question of Klara
Another possibility concerns Klara the mother of Adolf. Alois, the father of Adolf, at the age of 36 had married a 50 year old invalid widow. He began an affair with a maid, "Franzeska." Alois at that time had many such liaisons. Alois separated from the widow and Franzeska moved in. After that the young Klara Potzl in her turn was also hired as a maid to serve in the house of Alois and Franzeska. Franzeska was jealous. Klara was sent away and at the age of 17 went to Vienna. Meanwhile the widow died so Alois was able to marry Franzeska. After the marriage Franzeska became sick so Klara (having returned) moved in to look after her. Franzeska likewise died so Alois married Klara who was three months pregnant at the time. Alois apparently was in the habit of beating his wife and his children and of bullying his neighbors.
Klara, the mother of Hitler had therefore spent an unchaperoned year in Vienna at the age of 17. She may have had some kind of liaison with a Jew. Later this connection may have intermittently continued. Hitler believed that when an Aryan women had concourse with a Jew the following offspring would also be impaired even if their progenitor was a pure Aryan. This was accepted science in his time and a similar phenomenon is mentioned by Darwin (see Leon Poliakov, "The Aryan Myth," London, 1974, p. 370, n.100). Adolf always kept a picture of Klara with him, either in his pocket or in his room. Hitler openly reminisced over the time he spent in bed with Klara his mother while his father was at work.
7. Hitler the Conjurer.
Adolf Hitler in Vienna as a young man paid for tuition to learn conjuring. Conjurers distract attention from what they wish not to be noticed by creating a distraction elsewhere. Adolf may have done the same. Perhaps he had deliberately drawn attention to Alois in order to deflect it from Klara?
Brit-Am/Hebrew Awarness is a Movement that researches the presence of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel among Western Peoples. it uses different Criteria to determine which countries most likely are descedned from Israel and which are not .
The Criteria include:
1. Blessings: Economic and Physical Blessings as promised to Israel in Scripture.
2. Additional Indications of Scripture.
3. Groundwork: Historical, Archaeological, and Related Proofs showing paths of migration.
4. Judah: Affinity with the Jews.
5. Originality: Innovation and Intellect.
6. A Civilizing Influence.
7. Empathy: The Doing of Social Justice.
8. Israelite Self-Identification.
9. Family Connection.
10. Tribal Affiliation.
No. 4, Judah: Affinity with the Jews finds that a lower degree of anti-Semitism often indicates Israelite Origins. There are however exceptions. Sometimes many of them. Even among Jews from good Jewish families who are aware of their ancestry we find aberrations. This Ground for Exception obviously applies even more so concerning Gentiles whose last contact with whatever Israelite sources they may have had disappeared hundreds, or even thousands, of years ago.
