Stalin deliberately targeted the Kulaks of Russia . The Ukranian Kulaks were independent and SUCCESSFUL farmers( which meant that they produced large volumes of FOOD ).But, because they were successful , they were defined as class enemies of the state and the Soviet jackboot set out to crush and slaughter them by the millions.. This was genocide by ANY definition of the word. Official recognition of this genocide by Israel would NOT diminish the atrocity of the Holocaust in any way. On the contrary...if Israel in fact does not recognize Stalin's slaughter of millions of innocent Ukranians...this would greatly diminish ISRAEL.
