        That post pertains to Jewish soldiers.......

        The memorial in discussion pertains to the Red Army.........meaning the USSR.

        Where are the monuments dedicated the other countries not Jewish soldiers amidst their ranks that contributed to the defeat of Nazi Germany?

          I tried googling but there's no list.

          From the top of my mind I can place just one, for ANZAC troops, just because it's not too far from one of the Gaza strip bases in which I served.

          I remember at least 1 other for U.S troops but can't remember its location.
          I'm sure there are more.

          The are also other forms of perpetuation like the soccer team named Beitar Nes Tubruk F.C ("the Tubruk miracle")-

            Is that what makes this monument noteworthy? That Israel has embraced the contribution of the western allies to the defeat of Nazi Germany, but has been rather lukewarm in celebrating in a similar manner the contribution of the Red Army. The fact it has taken seventy years to build a monument to them would indicate a certain reluctance on the part of the Israeli state to recognise it formally.

              I don't think so.

              This is a small, while noteworthy, event that got blown out of proportions

              Natanya, the place were the monument will be erected, is one of the largest concentrations of Russian emigrants in Israel, it is also home to a lot of Red Army veterans, that's it.
