While at Moscow’s Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center on Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stressed the importance of facing murderous ideologies in time. Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin visited the museum before sitting down for an official meeting during which they discussed the Israeli-Russian security cooperation and the growing Iranian presence in Syria.

“I really appreciate this invitation and your personal attendance at this place and on this day, which reflects our joint struggle against the greatest evil that humanity has ever known,” Netanyahu added. “I think the main lesson that can be taken from the rise of the Nazis and their consequent fall is that we need to take a stand against murderous ideologies before it is too late and with power.”

“This is our mission also today and I want to talk to you about this- about our joint efforts to advance the security and stability in our region and of course also about the mutual cooperation between us, between Russia and Israel,” Netanyahu continued.

Earlier today, JOL reported that Netanyahu spoke to reporters before boarding the plane headed to Moscow. He said that he occasionally meets with Putin to discuss the military coordination between the IDF and Russia’s armed forces in Syria. He also explained that these arrangements have succeeded and stressed the importance of continuing their success.
