Novosti Claims Russia Already
Baking--and S elling!--Matzot

'Please don't let us


WASHINGTON The informa-
tion department of the Soviet Em-
bassy informs The Jewish News
that the Moscow Jewish commu-
nity already is baking—and selling!
—matzot !
The USSR official notice sent
The Jewish News is based on an
official Soviet release, quoting
Novosti Press Agency, and reads
as follows:
"On Jan. 7 the Moscow main
synagogue began selling matzot.
It is baked at 34 Kropotkin Street,
in the heart of the city. The bakery
occupies a house rented by the
community from the local author-
ities. A man authorized by the
community sees to it that the rules

of matzo baking are observed.
Up to 3 tons of matzot roll off the
conveyor every day.
"Unlike past years, this time
we began baking matzot fairly
early—three and a half months be-
fore the Passover. This will allow
us to supply matzot not only to
community members but to all
those wishing to receive it," Mik-
hail Mikhailovich, head of the Jew-
ish community told an APN corre-
"On the first day matzot was
bought by hundreds of persons,
both believers and non-believers.
"Other Soviet Jewish commun-
ities began preparaing for matzot

LONDON—Trofim Kychko is a
member of the Ukrainian Academy
of Science and the court philoso-
pher of the anti-Semites all over
Russia. They are unsung and un-
heralded. The Soviet Constitution
bans them. But they exist, and their
virulent anti-Semitism finds outlets
within the anti-Israel campaign,
which is still raging in the Soviet
Union. Kychko puts it all in "scho-
larly" terms, so that the revelant
paragraphs of the constitution are
not openly violated. At one time.
some two years ago, Kychko was
admonished by the official author-
ities. lie had - gone a little too far
with a Streicher-like article about
the Tora and the destiny of the
Jewish peoe,,,e-. That piece was so
utterly reptpive and so disgusting-
ly sickening that it made even
avowed ant:Semites wince. Kychko
had to be silenced for a while.
Now it seems he was one of the
beneficiaries of the June war in the
Middle East. They took him out of
the mothballs because they needed
him. And here are some gems from
an article of his in "Komsomols-
koye Znamya," the journal of the
Komsomol (the Young Commun-
ists) in Kiev. This is the stuff on
which young Communists are being
reared 50 years after the Revolu-
"There is convincing evidence,"
says Kychko, "which testifies to the
fact that there exists an unbreak-
able bond between Zionism and the
reactionary forces of contemporary
imperialism. It is precisely the
anti-Communism of the interna-
tional Zionist Orgonization of busi-
nessmen—some of them specializ-
ing ih politics and finance, others
in religion and commerce—that has
helped Jewish bourgeois national-
ism to grow stronger and to be-
come a tool of the policies and
strategy of contemporary imperial.
ism . . ."
Here is another of Kychko's as-
sertions: "American bankers, to-
gether with their Anglo - French and
German partners, have all consid-


ered Palestine to be a good launch-
ing pad for the creation of military,
naval and air force bases in their
struggle against the forces of prog-
ress ..." He also tells a story about
the Rockefellers and how they tried
to seize the Negev.
Kychko then turns his attention
to Israel as it is today: "Out of
2.600,000 inhabitants of Israel,
some 500,000 are doomed to semi-
starvation. Even more helpless is
the situation of Israeli immigrants,
who have been caught in the nets
of Zionist bankers , "
As to the June war: "Israelis
-narched over the corpses of Arab
women and children, driven by the
'ia'hological obsession with the idea
of extermination of the Arabs."
tine final quotation: "The inter-
"FiS of Israel and her will are ex-
^ressed by the Communists of Is-
rael . . ."
The last passage shows a tend-
ency to leave the door open, not to
write Israel off.
It is true, incidentally, that a
number of Jewish scientists and
scholars have recently been nom-
inated to the various Soviet acad-
emies. Soviet Russia is not a ra-
cist state, of course. But there is
as much anti-Semitism in the Soviet
Union as here is in most countries
where Jews live—and it is just now
much more virulent. More impor-
tant, Soviet anti - Semites write and
talk with government approval,
and no answer by Soviet Jews is

leadership" and "his steadfast pursuit of peace and his championship
of American-Israel friendship."
