President Putin: I Support Israel

 


Support for Operation Protective Edge, Israel's military effort to stop Hamas' incessant rocket attacks against Israel's civilians, is coming directly from the Kremlin.

"I am closely tracking what is happening in Israel," Russian President Vladimir Putin remarked in a meeting on Wednesday with a delegation of Chief Rabbis and representatives of the Rabbinical Center of Europe.

The purpose of the meeting, according to the Kremlin, was to discuss joint efforts to prevent the rewriting of history, the fight against neo-Nazism and neo-fascism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism.

"It is important to discuss the subject of the Holocaust of the World War II era. There are Holocaust survivors among the rabbis, they have their personal, dramatic stories," Rabbi Alexander Boroda, President of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia, told.

According a news report, Putin replied by asking Rabbi Yosef to pass along a message to Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Russia is a true friend of Israel and of the Prime Minister.

"I support Israel's battle that is intended to keep its citizens protected," he said about the Israel Defense Forces' operation to restore quiet to the region and stop Hamas terrorism.

"I also heard about the shocking murder of the three teenagers," Putin added about the kidnapping and murder of Naftali Fraenkel, Eyal Yifrach and Gilad Shaar, three Yeshiva students in Israel. "This is an unconscionable act and I ask that you bring my condolences to the families."
