Putin and the Jews

One of the first thoughts that came to me when I heard the news about Israel’s assassination of Hezbollah commander Samir Kuntar is what happened to Russian control over Syrian airspace? And what response, if any, would Russia offer to this blatant infringement?

I think these were questions going through a lot of peoples’ minds. Israel has been violating Syrian airspace with impunity for a number of years now, and it was hoped, when the country finally gained an ally as powerful as Russia, that Syria had maybe seen the last of it. Apparently not so. And it has a lot of people wondering why.

The Saker has posted a commentary attempting to answer that question. The blogger believes Putin struck a deal with Netanyahu: Israel wouldn’t interfere in Russian operations in support of the Syrians if Russia agreed not to hamper Israeli operations against Hezbollah. Moreover, he says, the relationship between Putin and Israel is a “complex and multi-layered” one, and he adds that although Putin enjoys the support of 90 percent of the Russian public, he does have enemies inside the Russian government who actively seek to undermine him.

You may not agree with everything The Saker has to say on this subject, but it’s definitely an article worth reading from someone who has demonstrated considerable familiarity with Russian politics. Below is an excerpt from his piece:

Putin inherited a system created by and for the AngloZionist Empire. He was a compromise candidate between two radically opposed parties and it took him years to first get rid of most of the the Russian (Jewish) oligarchs and then, very gradually, begin cleanup process in which slowly, step by step, the Zionists were booted out of their positions of power. According to Mikhail Khazin, the balance between these two groups has only recently reached a 50/50 point of (unstable) equilibrium. That also means that the “Putin people” need to watch their back every day the Good Lord makes because they know that their so-called “colleagues” are willing to stab them in a blink of an eye as soon as they get an opportunity.

  1. Or Putin agreed to not interfere with Israel operating in a line South from Damascus and then East to Jordan.
    That was the opinion of one writer, since forgotten.

    So those Israeli Golan field hospitals that are helping wounded ISIS terrorists will be allowed to stay open and the terrorists coming up from Jordan that have been trained by the CIA will be allowed to make it to the battle lines w/o fear of being bombed.
    And the Syrian oil stolen will also be allowed to enter Israel w/o fear of getting bombed by Russia.

    Pretty good deal… for Israel.

  2. it’s a grotesque but uncomplicated situation. Putin can go so far and no further: he can attack Isramerica’s pet Sunni terrorists in Syria, but he cannot touch Israel….because it would bring America storming to the defense of its Zionist master. On a related matter, the Turks have closed the Straits. No Russian warship or supply vessel has gotten through since 13 December. Pretty soon, Putin is going to have to make a choice with Large Consequences

    • Putin’s strategy against the West seems to be to bide his time. Prepare for war, but try to postpone the war long enough for Russia to build up its defenses. That’s one of the main points I took away from Saker’s article. And that would explain why we’re seeing almost endless patience from Putin in the face of constant provocations from the West. The West is anxious to egg the war on because they know that the longer they wait the stronger Russia is going to get.

  3. And there is this:

    The rift between Turkey and Russia became a fact. Its main beneficiaries were the US – and Israel. For the last five years, the relations between Israel and Turkey were hostile, since Israeli commandos massacred nine peace activists on board the Turkish vessel Mavi Marmara. In face of the Russian threat, the Turks agreed to make peace with Israel.

    Israel is involved in the conflict more than it admits. The Russians has published their evidence of Daesh oil being smuggled to Turkey by Turkish companies. This caused a lot of indignation in Russia and elsewhere. How do they dare to buy stolen oil and finance the terrorists!

    The Russians forgot to mention that the smuggled oil goes to Israel. Israel is the main buyer of oil produced by the Kurds and by Daesh. This was reported and corroborated by the FT and by Al Araby al Jadeed. The Russian media avoided the topic, as Putin cherishes his good relations with Netanyahu.
    Last week, Israelis attacked suburbs of Damascus and killed some Russian allies, Hezbollah fighters. Again, Russians took it quietly. None of indignation caused by downing of the bomber seeped into the Russian media…

    Israel supports al-Nusra, declared a terrorist organisation by the UN. This is not a secret: recently the Daily Mail published a report glorifying Israeli soldiers saving lives of the Islamist fighters. Thousands of wounded guerrillas received medical assistance in Israeli hospitals and went back to fight Bashar.

    Israel has a good working relations with Daesh, too. I was told that Daesh troops entered the Palestinian camp al Yarmuk being equipped with long lists of Palestinian activists. They were assembled and publicly executed. The Palestinians think that Daesh received the names from Israeli secret service and acted upon their request. Moreover, Daesh never ever attacked a Zionist target.

    Daesh is another (less offensive) name for ISIS. It’s a real chess game being played and we can’t really be sure of any of the player. – H

    • It’s an interesting article, Helvena, for sure. I thought this was especially amusing:

      “The rude Mr. Trump seems to be the candidate least likely to push the button for nuclear suicide of mankind. Much less likely than nice Mrs Clinton who could nuke Russia because Russians do not celebrate gay marriages.”

      Shamir has written some good ones over the years.
