"If for each dead dignitary certain number of intelligent Jews, by lot, ie, at the direction of God`s Fingers, will be shot, and property Kagan in a certain amount will be confiscated - terror itself stops ". On the inevitable accusations of inhumanity of such a measure, he said, that "blood will be shed much less for intelligent Jews who are bred in our revolution will tremble for their own head."
