Anti-Semitism, Monty Python-style

Transnistria, an obscure country bordering the Ukraine doesn’t even officially exist. But it’s a hot bed of drugs, crime and anti-Semitism.

There are not many borders in Europe where the cops sell ecstasy. There are also not many countries in Europe currently boasting one hundred per-cent employment. In Transnistria it seems they have it all sorted. The only problem is the country doesn't officially exist. And they hate you Jews.
Also, you don't get to keep the pills. It's a clever recycling initiative. Anyone clueless enough to purchase drugs from the man with the gun in the uniform, will subsequently be greeted by another man with a gun in a uniform about ten miles down the road. The ecstasy is found, the bribe is paid, and the merchandise whisked back to the border for the next clown's misfortune.
It's highly symbolic as the outsiders entrance into this murky, but fascinating, little anti-Semetic corner of Europe.
