The situation for Jews in Russia is “shocking” and “extremely worrying” given the images of Russians at Dagestan airport literally hunting down Jews. “It was like a pogrom. “Thank God the authorities prevented it in the end,” said Herzog.
He warned that Islamist groups such as Hamas and ISIS pose a threat not only to the State of Israel, but also beyond. “I tell everyone: People, you have to understand: If Israel is not there, Europe is next. They will scour Europe. That is what they are after. And then the United States.” It is a lesson of history: ” It starts with the Jews. It never ends with them.”
