We’re in Israel and we were all of a sudden stopped and we asked why and they told us Putin was coming and we saw TONS of security and motorcycles and three scars for those people and there were these two guys getting on motorcycles in black and they were peering around…. They looked like they were Mafia or agents or something! It was really cool!

Hmmm I wish I went to the Kotel the day b4 instead of the day after. 🙂 AT least I saw the escort. 🙂

Dont know him well but in yeshiva he was the quietest
Most aidel Chasidische Bachur. Now, putting aside the government of Isreal he is arguably the most influential
Jew in the world and it hasn’t changed him.
He is a Chasid and a manhig Yisroel . B”H

DASVEDENYA MR PRESIDENT, WE LOVE YOU

The only reason Putin is staring up, is to protect his own butt. At any split second, some Arab standing on the Temple Mount area, can fire a bullet. It’s a highly volatile area.

Putin

He is more tough and calculating than anybody we could possible know.
He is also one of the few people in the world you don’t want to mess with, take a look at his enemies, not to many of them alive….

A treacherous snake

If he wants the “Temple” to be rebuilt (and BTW I am sure this whole story was either staged or exaggerated) let him stop selling arms to Mad Mahmoud and the Mullahs.

Today
June 27, 2012 10:12 am

The temple must be built today, this is a miracle beyond belief.
I must do tsuva.

i leave in ukraine

you should now that putin is the richest person in the world

A dose of Geula reality
June 27, 2012 7:51 am

NO, it’s not that Putin isn’t helping the Arabs. THAT Is what makes this so special and so potentially good. Count the American Presidents who went to Jerusalem (as President). Count the number of American heads of state who have refused to recognize Yerushalayim as center and capital of Israel.
Call it what you may, but in the world of gestures, hand shakes and smiles this is a ‘kodak’ moment. Whether there is any ‘meaning’ from it, hard to know yet, have to see how all plays out.

respect for the makom

They have them wear a yarmulke/ kippa out of respect for the site. It’s better they they show respect.
As far as the Rebbe’s books, they’ve been trying for close to 20 years now , good luck .

Incredible

Putin’s statement– “That’s exactly the reason I came here – to pray for the Temple to be built again” — is truly amazing! Especially in the days immediately following Gimmel Tammuz! I’m blown away, actually!

totally agree with your comments- how can we trust such a chractor?hes backing those arab countries as well as the biggest threat to Israel =Iran.As Jews we must always keep our eyes to whats going on not only on the front but behind the scenes as well.Who knows really what was the purpose of this visit?

Amazing! Another sign!!!
June 26, 2012 11:23 pm

Mashiach times!

Interesting!
June 26, 2012 11:18 pm

hopefully he will look differently at the Jewish nation for the better. he might have set up this encounter. and i hope he will be more comfortable with the Jewish people.

no way
June 26, 2012 9:09 pm

putin is tyrant and should not be wearing a yarmulkah

Don't trust this guy.
June 26, 2012 8:21 pm

This is the guy that stands behind Iran and Syria. You are an idiot if you believe that he has Israel’s best interests in mind.

He does, however, protect Jews when it is in a non-political manner.

Thank God for Rabbi Berel Lazar
June 26, 2012 7:15 pm

Thank God that Rabbi Lazar has built a close, trusting relationship with the President Putin. If they continue on this way, the new Russia will be stronger and stronger and will gain more brochas with each passing year.

Notice how Purin stares upwards...

He is fascinated and awed by the fact that The Israeli army is able to keep the evil Arabs at bay, just over that mighty Herod Wall. He is mesmerized at the beautiful, holy, ancient site of the World’s Number One Ground Zero as I call it. It’s a spectacle of bright lights beaming down on the wall and the shiny floor and you can feel the happy vibration of a jewish nation gathered nightly there.

Don't Trust Him
June 26, 2012 6:32 pm

He;s 2 faced. I wouldn’t trust him as far as I can throw him.

Its really amazing!
June 26, 2012 6:12 pm

I love how all these goyim, communists are wearing Yarmulkahs! How ironic. My Grandfather got beat up for wearing a yarmulkah in moscow…and now the president and all his body guards are wearing one…

rebbe's books
June 26, 2012 5:40 pm

maybe the frum jew’s conversation will have an influance on president putin and he will give the rebbes books back!!!!!
