Russia: Journalist accuses Crimea of committing 'Zionist crimes'

Via Izrus:

Mustafa Jemilev, the elder statesman of the Crimean Tatar community, was banned from Russia and his homeland of Crimea.

Russian journalist Maxim Shevchenko used the opportunity to write a long antisemitic screed on his blog on the Echo of Russia radio website.  Shevchenko says that Armenia and Israel (the anti-Turkish front) are involved in what's happening in Crimea and have an interest in ruining the Turkish-Russian relationship.

Shevchenko, who recently said that the Palestinians are waging Jihad against World Evil, then goes on to accuse the Crimean authorities of using Zionist repressive policies.  Palestinians are barred from their homeland while natives of Soviet and European cities (ie, the Jews), who came there using military force, call Palestine their 'historical homeland', and even deny the real owners the right to call it by its real name of "Palestine".

I'm not going to repeat it all, but Shevchenko accuses Israelis of Islamophobia, racism, apartheid and killing Palestinians with impunity.
