  1. In the reality of geo-politics, Israel is one of a few countries to have avoided diplomatic scuffles with Russia while practically all of Europe – Serbia excepted with one or two others, have withdrawn embassy officials and staff. Aleksandar Vučić, President of Serbia (at 34,000 sq. miles, three times the size of Israel with equal populations around 7-8 Millions) was the only European politician at the May 9 celebrations in Moscow. Netan-ya-hure was there from the Middle East representing the ultra MKs of the Likud Zionist party.

    It is a small price to pay for peace in Syria if Iran and Hezbollah are steered from the Syrian Golan where terrorist holdouts are hunkered down awaiting what is sure to be a defining push by “Tiger” forces to oust and rout them. When I say Iran I refer of course to the military adivisers embedded with the SAA. There are no Iranian forces in Syria, per se. The Israelis are feeling a tad rankled at seeing their darling proxy forces decimated and destroyed. Iran and Hezbollah are to be commended and then some, for the anti-terrorist campaign they waged on behalf of President Assad. Putin is more than aware of Israel’s complicity with the US and the so-called Western allies and no friendship however established can dismiss the brutal facts. Remember, Iran not Israel holds to key to defending a huge chunk of the southern Russian borders.

  2. A greater threat to Syria, demanding Russian attention, is the unwanted and illegal presence of US troops east of the Euphrates and those US troops staging in Jordan near the border with Syria from which a coordinated attack on Damascus could be launched, when “needs be”. Yet, the Russians choose to focus on Israel’s concerns about Hezbollah or Iran, two groups which are fighting the terrorists backed by Israel and the United States. Clearly, Israel’s influence over Russia compares favorably with Israel’s ability manipulate US policy.

  3. Contrary to popular believe about Russia and its role. Latest events showing that Russia is under control of same forces controllers USA. Russians latest U-turn surprised many many. Soon or later Russia Will betray Iran and Syria. They stopped negotiations of 3-300 to Syria. The main host of Russian on 9 may was Bibi Butcher. Russia is compeletely Silent about Israeli attackes in Syria or massaker in Gaza, not even a word.
    There is already a riff between Iran and Russia due to Russias betrayal of Iran. Do people know that a criticisim of Israel and Zios can cost you your job in Russia??
    Historically Russia is the one of the biggest back stabber in the world.

  4. Can’t wait to see the Palestinensians filling the gap and settle in south Syria as well as Sinai, forced by military Israeli harassment of Ghaza as a whole. I guess, The UN already knows its marching order into south Syria, after the old Syria is successfully carved up into pieces – under a new President of course.

    The coming double or triple Nobel peace prices are already eagerly awaited.

  5. There goes Russia again. Thinking the US and, Israel can be trusted. So what next? Do we all sit by as the “coalition” crushes Syria. This ain’t going to end well.
