Saakashvili wants to be a goy2011-01-28 14:48
Georgian president is like a chameleon: he knows his way in any situation and adapts himself to new conditions very quickly. In TV project "President Answers People's Questions" Mikheil Saakashvili touched upon a very interesting topic by calling refugees to follow example of Jews and use the slogan "Next year in Jerusalem" adding a small correction. The name of the sacred city of three religions is supposed to be changed for Sukhum from where the most organic part of population was expelled, as it turns out.
Remarkably, before Georgian president held this talk with potential electorate the Labor Party of Georgia accused Saakashvili of anti-Semitism with Georgi Gugava, the Labor party political secretary comparing Mikheil Nikolozovich with German fascists.
Mr. Saakashvili has been long used to comparisons like this and most probably this is his special pride. But summarizing all "coincidences" that involve Semites in the territory of Georgia it becomes quite clear that the Labor party's accusations are not ungrounded. For example, three years ago an opposition businessman, Jewish by birth, Badri Patarkatsishvili died under unclear circumstances and Georgian leaders illegally took possession of his property.
Gugava also reminds of an incident that took place last year when Georgian authorities invited two businessmen from Israel - Rony Fuks and Ziava Frenkel - to a meeting with Georgian finance minister Avtandil Kharaidze. As a result, the businessmen were caught red-handed on a corrupt deal and arrested. Naturally, they are subject to trial for Georgia is famous for its democracy and favorable business conditions. To replenish the state budget it is enough to rob those who want to pay taxes voluntarily. But taxes in the republic are among the lowest in Europe, so legally any chick is out of question.
One way or another, today the world's most democratic president will have to wash off accusations of anti-Semitism. Still, he finds it normal to use historic allusions connected with Jews in his pathetic speeches.
