WHO WE ARE
The Ukrainian Jewish Encounter (UJE) is a privately organized,
multinational initiative launched in 2008 as a collaborative project
involving Ukrainians of Jewish and Christian heritages and others, in
Ukraine and Israel as well as in the diasporas. Its work engages
scholars, civic leaders, artists, governments and the broader public in
an effort to promote stronger and deeper relations between the two

[You will note that Temerty's Advisory Board includes charter
members of the Holocaust Industry -- Rabbi Bleich, Irwin Cotler, Abe
Foxman, Alti Rodal, etc. How did decent people like Raynell Andreychuk
and John Turner get roped into this crowd?
Internet searches reveal interesting information:
- Adrian Karatnycky supports Victor Yanukovych and is in the
pay of the Party of Regions.
- Rabbi Bleich defamed Ukrainians in the 23Oct1994 documentary
"The ugly face of freedom"
- Irwin Cotler was instrumental in initiating the Deschenes
Commission, screamed that he would pursue John Demjanjuk to the ends of
the earth when the Israeli courts finally released him in September
1993, openly admitted that he supports the d&d process to keep
the memory of the Holocaust alive. A collection of his writings can be
found in the Cotler Files at
- Alti Rodal wrote a 560-page + appendices report for Jules
Deschenes in September 1986. [Would Mr. Temerty like a copy of the
Are these the best people that James Temerty could find to
advise him for his UJE project? Why did he not include Yurij Scherbak,
who is only a stone's throw from his office in Kyiv?
Mr. Temerty claims that the UJE has already made progress
concerning Khmelnitsky and Simon Petlura. I will believe him, when
Netanyahu gets up in the Knesset and proclaims that Petlura was one of
the best friends that the Jews ever had, rather than currying favour
with Russia to delegitimize Ukraine's independence. Why did over 90% of
the people in Israel empowered to vote in Ukraine's presidential
elections support Yanukovych?
Was it just a coincidence that the UJE project was
initiated in 2008, just before John Demjanjuk's extradition to Germany
in May 2009? And before Victor Yanukovych came to power in February
UCC is initiating a campaign to raise funds -- asking people
to pledge annual donations for five years. James Temerty pledged
$50,000.00 annually, several $20,000.00, Paul Grod $10,000.00,
following the announcement several people pledged $1,000.00 annually.
Mr. Temerty is also chairman of the UCC Advisory Committee.
I really wish James Temerty full success for his pet project,
although my suspicious paranoid self has doubts. If history is a guide,
the Holocaust Industry will play Mr. Temerity along for a while until
he is no longer useful and then dump him. In the meantime, Ukrainians
will be expected to support Israel and refrain from criticising Israeli
genocidal policies past, present and future. Will Ukrainians become
complicit in supporting war crimes?
And in Ukraine, will UCC dare criticize Pinchuk, Kolomoisky,
Poroshenko, etc.? Is this a ploy to paralyze the Ukrainian community?
Will Ukrainian Canadians be expected to support the oligarchs?
Perhaps some more research and discussion of the UJE project
would be in order.
