Zelenskyy to Knesset
By Micah Halpern
On Sunday Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed the Israeli Knesset.
In the course of the presentation, as the Ukrainian president was speaking, the Knesset was forced to repel computer attack after computer attacks.
Almost certainly, the attacks on the Knesset were an attempt to prevent the Ukrainian presidentís speech. The cyberattacks could have resulted in disaster - but the Israeli cyber defense system was alert and did their job and the speech went on.
The attackers were, most probably, Russian.
In his speech, Zelenskyy referenced the Holocaust, a decision that was met with serious critique. The general feeling of Knesset members was that the Ukrainian presidentís Holocaust related material bordered on Holocaust denial. Most specifically, his use of historical comparisons and the exaggerations he employed when comparing the murder of Jews by Nazis to the Russian invasion of his country, Ukraine.
The Holocaust was perpetrated under the guise of war. It was a program to murder every single Jew and to that end, murder factories were created. The end result was the murder of 6 million Jews.
Israeli lawmakers and Holocaust experts contend that that is not what is happening in Ukraine.
Never the less, almost every member of Israelís Knesset agreed to support Ukraine against an aggressive Russia.
