There are none so blind as those who refuse to learn from history.

3. Putin? I'm listening with hopeful heart
ASTRONAUT ,   SC, USA   (07.12.14)
To PS inTulsa and Tom in Tel Aviv: I too, am surprised by this news item, but as France and England are overrun with islamic zealots shrieking for Israel's demise, perhaps [and I am speaking as a VERY Conservative Hebrew woman] Putin is coming to understand and appreciate the vast contributions made to society by educated Jewish citizens, and by Am Yisrael. Shabbat Shalom.
4. Putin is not anti-Semitic.
Doctor ,   USA   (07.12.14)
You can rightfully criticize Putin for his domestic and foreign policies but you've got to give him a credit. He's not anti-Semitic. His high school teacher lives in Israel now and during his official visit to Israel he found time to meet her. He also gave her the gift. He bought her apartment in Israel. His judo coach was Jewish. They two were close. Few years ago Putin attended his funeral in Saint Petersburg.
5. @2 why don't you educate us...

6. Russian press had a bit different report
Miron ,   USA   (07.13.14)
they spoke of a friendly discussion in which European ravvins bitterly complained about rising Anti - Semitism in the West an were discussion coordinating campaign against rising neo - nazism, particularly in Ukrain and Britain.
7. Idiot @ 2 ,...

Read '200 years together' by A. Solzhenitsyn, he did. There were 109 major expulsions and pogroms since 250 AD, there must be something in the air you bread that wherever you settled you got your ass kicked out after the natives figured out your peculiar life style and mind set ,... Blame the air or diet ;) ,...
8. Neo-Zionism, Neo-Hebrews, root cause of Muslim global terror
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (07.12.14)
Antisemitism is real, a backlash against Jews abusing their host countries, politically, economically, for the sole benefit of Jews, the Jewish Nation, and now Israel.
9. A bone under the table for useful idiots and ignorants ,...
split ,   US   (07.13.14)
Good boys, marvelous, here's a pad on the back, suckers, thanks for the photo opportunity, looking good myself, yes sir very good as a matter of fact ... now I want to see any dude calling me an anti ,... The same Putin that not so long ago reminded the same punks that 85% of the first Soviet commie regime was made of Jews - Someone who's from there knows that it wasn't a compliment, no sir, what he said between the lines that not so ignorant Russian six-pack-Joe could read ... political/ethnic purges, gulags, pre-planned, mass starvation of tens of millions, by the most murderous regime and political system ever created ,...
10. #3No doubt that Vlad, just like most of antisemites, suffers
tom ,   tel aviv   (07.13.14)
from "penis-envy" ( Yiddishe-Kopf envy). He may be smart enough to acknowledge that "investing" in Jews may bring some sorely needed prosperity & enlightenment to his backward Empire of the Vodka. I would trust him just as much as I would trust a Muslim proclaiming brotherly feelings towards all of humanity...
11. really?
nadav ,   tlv   (07.13.14)
Why not start by NOT defending Iran and its nuclear weapons program, the sole purpose of which is to perpetrate another holocaust against the Jews?! What a two faced liar!
12. @7 at least some start to boot... so. Masada was in 250AD?
Miron ,   USA   (07.14.14)
I guess Solzhenitizin forgot to write for you that there are facts, besides his fiction literature. Two facts to start from. But what about creation of state of Israel in 1948 and recognition of Jewish state... I think this is where you begin dreaming we were talking in Russian. English side of the story doesn't sound too pretty. But where is English speaking Solzhenitizin to talk sense in your brethren... I guess 400 years later you will get one. When your pension fund won't suffer too much from what you have to write down.
