Hysteria among Breslav Chassidim

Breslav Chassids petitioned Ukrainian president over the fate of Rabbi Nahman’s grave in the Ukrainian town of Uman. Simple-minded chassids gave power of attorney to a Jewish crook who signed a contract with Ukrainian crook for development of the place. Now the Ukrainian crook, a minor businessman and an insignificant member of the Ukrainian parliament, blackmails the chassids by threatening to build over the grave.
Chassidim are notoriously brave when combating the nice Israeli government, but tremble before the Ukrainian anti-Semites. Tens of thousands of chassidim visit Uman every year, but they are unable even to guard their sanctuary against the Ukrainian barbarians.
It eludes chassidim that Ukrainian law positively prohibits building over the recognized historical monuments, such as Rabbi Nahman’s grave, and so the entire blackmail is moot.
