Oh oh....

Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk where pro-Russian militants have taken over government buildings were told they have to "register" with the Ukrainians who are trying to make the city become part of Russia, according to Ukrainian and Israeli media.

Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city's Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee "or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated," reported Ynet News, Israel's largest news website.

Uh......

You might want to pretend that stuff like this doesn't happen in the world any more. The sad fact is that it appears that it does, and now the difficulty is determining whether this is some sort of hoax or whether it is in fact part of the so-called "separatist" people who are trying to take over part of eastern Ukraine.

If the latter then some very difficult decisions need to be made, particularly in light of what Putin has used as justification for what amounts to an invasion of Crimea.

That would make the situation, on balance, a bit dicey folks......
