Lazar: Not Coincidence Town of Lubavitch in Russia

from Interfax:

Chief Rabbi of Russia Berel Lazar highly praised the Russian people in an article published on Thursday by the Izvestia daily, a national paper. “A Russian person in his culture is oriented on love, kindness, openness,” Lazar wrote.

He reminded that the word “Chassid” comes from the word “chesed,” which means “mercy, kindness.”

The rabbi noted that it is not by chance that the town where the Jewish movement Chabad Lubavitch was founded comes from the word “love.”

“And probably it is not accidental that Lubavitchi is located in Russia,” Lazar said.

Sharing his impressions from the International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Emissaries in New York, he said that participants in the forum mentioned the situation in Russia as an example of positive settlement of national and religious problems, when “tough position of authorities against anti-Semitism and aggressive nationalism gives its fruit.”

      Putin Vs Obama, I would take Putin
      Russia Vs USA, I would take USA

      I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to understand this.

      But at the end of the day Eretz Yisroel is the place to be – May we all merit it NOW!

    from your logic it is obviously clear u are no rocket scientist. so you would rather have Putin as President of USA than Obamer?
    Are u a communist or just plain freedom and liberty challenged?
    (btw u are free to move to Eretz Yisroel now if u so desire)
