Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that Syria was "very actively" cooperating with chemical weapons inspectors and suggested that Indonesia join international peace talks on the crisis.

"Doubts about whether the Syrian leadership would adequately respond to the decision taken on chemical weapons – these doubts did not bear out," Russian news agencies quoted Putin as telling reporters at a regional summit in Indonesia.

"The Syrian leadership has very actively joined this work and is acting in a transparent manner, helping international agencies," Putin said. "I hope that this work will continue at the same pace, in the same spirit."

Putin added that Moscow would welcome large Muslim nations such as Indonesia joining Syria peace talks that the United States and Russia hope will take place in Geneva in mid-November.

"We believe it is possible to expand the number of (conference) participants by including such big Muslim states like Indonesia," Putin said. "In my opinion, it would be quite natural and we'd welcome it."

Putin said he had discussed the progress of Syria's disarmament with US Secretary of State John Kerry, who was standing in at the Indonesian summit for President Barack Obama, who was grappling with a budget crisis in Washington.

The UN Security Council endorsed a Russian-US disarmament plan for Syria last month, after a chemical weapons attack near Damascus on August 21, in which hundreds died.

Putin stressed that Russia and the United States were largely in agreement over how to deal with Syria.

"Our disagreements about Syria were mostly technical in nature," Putin said. "We generally have the same goals aimed at stabilizing the situation, achieving democracy, creating peaceful conditions for civilians.

And the Zionists are furious. They are seeing their entire world fall apart. The US no longer jumps on their orders. The entire world holds them in disdain. Zionism is having a complete nervous breakdown.

The BDS ( boycott, divest, sanction) movement is gaining momentum quickly ... Israel is increasingly isolated and despised.

The Zionist Ashkenazis have been shown to be Turcic (Not Semitic) from the area around Kurdistan through genetic mapping. New books detail the mass conversion of the country of Khazar in eastern Europe.

So they are lashing out in any way possible. More violence against Palestinians including what can only be called biological warfare as they spray Palestinian streets with sewage.

They are rounding up the Bedouin tribes of the Negev stealing lands that were theirs for millennia. They are deporting people of dark skin, even Jews, to Africa for arms.

For the first time Palestinians outnumber Jews in Greater Palestine. The numbers will only get worse for the Zionists despite their efforts to import Jews and they know it.

Israel is in a complete psychic breakdown. They are more dangerous than ever. Riots within and their beloved narrative of the return to the Land of King David, that they can not find, shattered.

The conversion to Judaism of the Kingdom of the Khazars:
