    "This is a Jewish town, and Jews do not look after the cities in which they live. Take Israel for example, I was there and I saw it myself," -Lukashenko To be sure, the landscapes of TA, Haifa slums, and the disastrous state of things in preserving the collapsing Bauhaus monuments - the first historical artifacts of the modern and modernist Israel - will cheer up only someone who'd like to see Israel bomb-levelled. The Town Planning munic. mechanisms and implementation have been merely side issue of state policies since 1922. As for Bobruisk, for it's deplorable state are accountable Soviet municipal policies, and not Jewish population. In short, Lukashenka's observation is correct but his comparison is false (and to certain degree anti-Semitic) in attributing the ruins in Israel and Bobruisk to some common cultural/innate "Jewish" quality. Ironically, the overall state of things in Israeli cities is many heads above that of that in Belarus. No innate quality in that fact either.
