The May Regulations were designed to protect Russians, especially the poor against Jews. They are one reason why the Jews turned nasty and brought us the Bolshevik Revolution. The Wiki puts a position. You should read what Professor MacDonald has to say in 200 Years Together before taking the Wikipedia's article at face value.
May Laws - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaRegulations
Temporary regulations regarding the Jews (also known as May Laws) were proposed by minister of internal affairs Nikolai Ignatyev and enacted on May 15 (May 3 O.S.), 1882, by Tsar Alexander III of Russia. Originally, regulations of May 1882 were intended only as temporary measures until the revision of the laws concerning the Jews, but remained in effect for more than thirty years.
They read as follows
"As a temporary measure, and until a general revision is made of their legal status, it is decreed that the Jews be forbidden to settle anew outside, of towns and boroughs, exceptions being admitted only in the case of existing Jewish agricultural colonies."
"Temporarily forbidden are the issuing of mortgages and other deeds to Jews, as well as the registration of Jews as lessees of real property situated outside of towns and boroughs; and also the issuing to Jews of powers of attorney to manage and dispose of such real property."
"Jews are forbidden to transact business on Sundays and on the principal Christian holy days; the existing regulations concerning the closing of places of business belonging to Christians on such days to apply to Jews also."
"The measures laid down in paragraphs 1, 2, and 3 shall apply only to the governments within the Pale of Jewish Settlement."
The Wiki was set up by Jews. It is fairly dependable until the agenda cuts in. This is just such a case. Notice that it claims that Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn is alleged to have argued that........ It falls short of calling him a liar and stating outright that he is wrong but it is tendentious.
Chapter 5 - After the Murder of Alexander II by Professor MacDonald
[ Alexandr ] Solzhenitsyn’s Chapter 5 (“After the Murder of Alexander II”) recounts the important period after the assassination of Tsar Alexandar II in 1881. (See here.)......... The agitators were motivated by Jewish economic domination. A well-known leaflet from 1881 read:
Who seized the land, forests, and taverns?—The Yid—From whom, muzhik (peasant), do you have to ask for access to your land, at times hiding tears?...From yids.—Wherever you look, wherever you ask—the yids are everywhere. The Yid insults people and cheats them; drinks their blood”…and it concludes with the appeal: “Honest working people! Free yourselves!
Another leaflet explained that the pogroms were “not against the Jews as Jews, but against Yids; that is, exploiter peoples.” Rather than simply rejecting this explanation, Solzhenitsyn presents a sympathetic portrayal of I. S. Aksakov, a contemporary defender of the pogromists, who ascribed their actions as stemming from “a kind of simple-hearted conviction in the justness of their actions”; the question is “not about Jews enjoying equal rights with Christians, but about the equal rights of Christians with Jews, about abolishing factual inequality of the Russian population in the face of the Jews.”
This is an excellent encapsulation of the traits of Jewish groups in traditional societies: Tribal exclusivity, religious fanaticism, and group cohesion (ethnic networking) resulting in economic domination, especially over the poorer classes and often in collusion with elites. Together these traits amount to a group evolutionary strategy. In this case, however, the Russian government refused to ally itself with the Jews and attempted "to protect the population from that harmful activity of the Jews." Hence the conflict between the Russian government and the international Jewish community from 1881 to 1917.
Are Jews vicious? Alexandr gives us evidence. Did they try to destroy the Russian empire? Alexandr gives us evidence. Do Jews hate Alexandr? Yes because he told the truth about them. Professor MacDonald's article is worth reading in full.
