New Anti-Semitism in Russia?

DEBKAfile has the following note this morning:
Some 500 Russian nationalists including 19 parliamentarians demand ban on Jewish groups. They declare Jews are anti-Christian and anti-human and hatred of them is justified. Their fierce published diatribe recalls old Anti-Semitic symbols including blood libel.

This is disturbing news. I haven't been able to find any other information on this story; if anyone knows more, please get in touch.


More information at AP and the BBC (hat tip -- OJ).

I suppose you could get 500 KKK members to march in NYC with the same manifesto.

Yeah, but how many members of Congress would sign on? Besides Byrd, I mean... ;)
