    • Larisa of Moscow to Kate of London (111)
    • 20.12.05 | 23:39 (IST)

    Kate of London wrote: "Now, to more practical matters. How do you intend delivering your message to Vladimir Putin?" ----------------- I think our Pres. is OK. Slim, handsome, married to ex-stewardess, former KGB man, he delivered speech 5 years ago in Jewish Community of Moscow. Quotes? "Judaism is an integral part of Russian civilisation" "When I see women with strollers and babies here in this Synagogue, I know, I'm confident: Russia has future..." "We used to persecute these people (Habad). I myself was interrogating them. Do we need to persecute them? We need to learn from them a lesson of life!" "Who could live in this country?" Putin ordered Ivan the Terrible's Kremlin kitchen made kosher under supervision of his Chief Rabbi B. Lazar. Real repentance! Did A. Sharon or British PM ever utter such pearls of repentance to their constituencies? Respectfully, Larisa of Moscow
