Chief Rabbi of Russia Berl Lazar criticized statements by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov , who suggested that Jews were the worst anti-Semites and that Adolf Hitler had Jewish roots.

Lazar called Lavrov’s statements “shocking” and said he would like Lavrov to apologize. Such a comment is unusual in Russia, where other clergy support the war in Ukraine and where dissent is largely illegal, writes the Jewish Telegraphic Association . 

“I don’t feel entitled to give advice to the head of Russian diplomacy – but it would be nice if he apologized to the Jews and simply admitted his mistake,” Lazar wrote in response to a request for comment.

“I think then it would be possible to consider the incident settled and turn the page,” added Lazar.

Recall that Zelensky responded to Russia’s accusations about “mercenaries from Israel.”

  1. “I don’t feel entitled to give advice to the head of Russian diplomacy – but it would be nice if he apologized to the Jews and simply admitted his mistake,” ….

    It certainly would be. But this Lazar seems to suffer from a common Russian condition: a willingness to turn a blind eye to the planned, systematic genocide of innocent Ukrainians.
    One assumes also that Lazar would not have been offended if fuhrer putler’s planned murder of the Jewish president of Ukraine and his wife had been successful? Even if it had been done by Chechen head-choppers, which was what had been intended?
