Haaretz: Putin says Israel’s freedom to attack Assad is over


Dear Putin, why can’t you let me take Assad out of the political game?

…by Jonas E. Alexis


The Israeli newspaper Haaretz has recently released an interesting article entitled, “Syrian UN Envoy: Putin Sent Message to Israel That Its Freedom to Act in Syria Is Over.” The newspaper reported:

“Russia has sent a clear message to Israel that the rules of the game have changed in Syria and its freedom to act in Syrian skies is over, Syria’s ambassador to the United Nations said on Sunday night.

“‘Putin sent a clear message,’ said Bashar Jaafari, speaking on Syrian television. ‘The fact is that the Israeli ambassador [to Russia] was summoned for a conversation only a day after he submitted his credentials [to the Russian Foreign Ministry last Thursday], and was told categorically that this game is over.’

“Syria’s use of anti-aircraft fire against Israel last Thursday night has changed the rules of the game, too, Jaafari said, adding that Syria will not stand idly by in the face of an Israeli threat.”[1]

Haaretz, which called Russia’s move in Syria “murderous,” has admitted elsewhere that Vladimir Putin changed the political game in the region. In fact, they declared that “Putin is the Middle East’s new boss.”[2]

Obviously Putin doesn’t want to get into a military conflict with the Israeli regime, since he perceives that it would lead to World War III. But the war in Syria clearly shows that Russia and the Israeli regime are operating on a different political platform.

Putin wants to preserve sovereign nations in the Middle East, but Netanyahu wants total destruction. Putin wants peace with nations like Iran, but Netanyahu wants the entire world to revolt against Iran. Putin obviously sees that perpetual wars in the Middle East can never lead to perpetual peace, but Netanyahu sees that chaos and destruction, as he said right after the 9/11 attack, “swung American public opinion in our favor.”[3]

Netanyahu seems to be aware that the situation in Syria is quite different from the debacles in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. Much of the world was quite naïve back then. Thanks to alternative media, much of the world is quickly realizing that the Israeli regime is projecting an immoral code onto the entire universe.

The world has seen the detrimental effect of Netanyahu’s immoral code in places like Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. We can certainly say that Netanyahu is working with an essentially Talmudic premise,[4] but that premise is consistent with Darwinism. If we are going to condemn Netanyahu, then perhaps we all need to condemn Darwin’s “survival of the fittest” as well. After all, Darwin’s Origin of Species had an interesting subtitle: The Preservation of the Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.

Some of his main interests include the history of Christianity, U.S. foreign policy, the history of the Israel/Palestine conflict, and the history of ideas.

Alexis welcomes comments, letters, and queries in order to advance, explain, and expound rational and logical discussion on issues such as the Israel/Palestine conflict, the history of Christianity, and the history of ideas.

In the interest of maintaining a civil forum, Alexis asks that all queries be appropriately respectful and maintain a level of civility. As the saying goes, “iron sharpens iron,” and the best way to sharpen one’s mind is through constructive criticism, good and bad.

However, Alexis has no patience with name-calling and ad hominem attack. He has deliberately ignored many queries and irrational individuals in the past for this specific reason—and he will continue to abide by this policy.

  1. Love and compassion will put an end to all hostility. Many Israelis want to break free from their Orwellian bondage, but what alternative do they have when they read belligerent comments from the outside world.

  2. The scenario the Israelis fear most is a group like Hizbullah or Hashd opening the door and an endless stream of militias rushing in. This is why they fear Iran. They are defenceless against this scenario — Imagine millions of experienced fighters with Kalashnikovs and Kornets on every street corner inside Israel — none of them in uniform. Asking the US for help will only result in their “settlements” looking like an American army has passed through.

    The war in the Middle East will end on the streets of Israel. Whether the Israelis stand and fight or run away to save their precious sons and daughters, will determine whether they end up with a compromise as in South Africa or a capitulation like in Zimbabwe. If they choose to disregard Putin, he will ensure that the inevitable endgame happens sooner rather than later.

  3. Russia and Israel take orders from their Zionist masters in the Uk just like usa controlled threw printing by Private central banks , its just biasness as usual with a bit of Genocide thrown in .

  4. The story is what Syrian government interpreted Russia calling Israeli ambassador to mean.
    In reality Putin didn’t say that, as Netanyahu said the other day in China that he told Putin he would keep attacking Syria and went to Russia to talk about coordinating attacks against Syria without posing danger to Russians in Syria.

  5. Putin likely has billions of dollars invested in Syria. He isn’t going to flush it all down the toilet for a thug outlaw country Israel. I knew he would lay down the law with these jerks.

  6. We have to wonder if a major war is imminent given the recent escalation and apparently new stance of Russia and Assad regarding Israeli air strikes over Syria? As long as Netanyahu believes Trump has back, he’s likely as ever, to tempt fate and launch new strikes against Syrian army positions. We hope Russia reacts appropiately–come hell or high water.

  7. Based on my limited information, I have more confidence in world countries as russia, syria, Iran, China, Japan and possibly even N Korea than the thugs running the U.S or Israel or Saudi Arabia. Isn’t an UN occupying force for the outlaw nations US, Israel, turkey and saudi arabia long overdue?
