WTF, Just who's side is Putin on?

Putin is concerned about “Nazi” ideas, and declares his support for Israel

Putin met with influential rabbis:
“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. [...]
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.

Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef in the quoted text is the son of the deceased Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, former Chief Sephardic Rabbi of Israel, spiritual founder of the Israeli Shas party and a friend of President Peres, who said that “Goyim exist only to serve Jews”. When he passed away, hundreds of thousands of Israelis mourned him, including Netanyahu, who reportedly expressed “profound grief”. This is the sort of people Putin is associating with and declaring his support for.

Putin’s government recently made it illegal to question the “Holocaust” and Putin himself signed a bill outlawing “incitement” and “extremism”.
