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.”
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.”
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.”
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, 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.
