Netanyahu guest of honor at Russian Victory March


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was President Vladimir Putin’s guest of honor at the Victory March taking place in Moscow Wednesday on the anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany. They walked together past the guard of honor, watched the march-past of different Russian army units, and together laid their wreaths at the monuments to the unknown soldier, as the military band played Israel’s national anthem, Hatikva, after the Russian anthem. Putin said the ceremony also commemorated the victims of the Nazi Holocaust. The two leaders will sit together to watch the main part of the event that showcases the military prowess of the Russian army and its heavy weaponry.

    Putin could rehabilitate himself by removing the SA-300 systems from Fascist Iran.

    Why does Russia ALWAYS be a spoiler, even when it’s to their own self interests – (Chechyn Musllims bombing Moscow)

    Some 550,000 Soviet Jews fought the Germans. Largest Jewish army ever. Some 100,000 t0 150,000 never returned. Those captured were immediately executed. Some 500,000 American Jews participated in the War with just 10,000 casualties. Without the Soviets enormous efforts, including 30 million casualties, what would have happened to the remaining Soviet Jews. We Jews owe the Soviets a lasting appreciation for their War efforts. As well as providing crucially need arms in 1948 without which Israel might never have been launched. Israelis don’t view the Russians as their enemy. American Jews ought follow suit. Without the Soviet efforts all the European Jews would have disappeared.
