The following video is very instructive. It was taken at a side meeting of the COP21 conference in Paris, when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu consulted with Russian President Vladimir Putin about topics of mutual interest, mostly involving the situation in Syria. Mr. Netanyahu says that he has established good working coordination with Russia, so that no inadvertent “incidents” between Russia and Israel will happen in Syria.
I’d love to have been a fly on the wall during their private conversations.
Israel and Russia definitely have mutual interests. The United States has thrown Israel to the Islamic wolves, so PM Netanyahu has finally decided to find an alternative partnership.
We have discarded and betrayed our allies one by one. All we have left now are Turkey and the
Islamic terrorists moderate rebels. And the Turkish alliance is a one-way street: we help the Turks, and they do nothing for us — unless you consider supplying and protecting our pet jihadist groups in Syria an important strategic contribution.
2016 is shaping up to be an interesting year.
