In deepening Russia-Israel breach, Putin declines to meet Netanyahu

Russian sources reported Wednesday that no meeting would take place between President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in Paris next Sunday. Israel tried repeatedly during October to set up a meeting on the sidelines of a gathering of world leaders for ceremonies marking the centenary of WWI’s end.

DEBKAfile:  On Wednesday, Russian media headlined Israeli minister Ze’ev Elkin’s assertions to their correspondents that Israel will strike back at the Syrian-based S-300 air defense systems if they hit Israeli jets, even if they are manned by Russian teams. He said those systems were a destabilizing factor and Moscow was mistaken in shipping them to Syria. See DEBKAfile report on Elkin’s briefing.

    Unfortunately Russia has sacrificed morality and materialism for antisemitism and Iranian oil, money, and evil! Those who bless Israel will be Blessed and those who curs Israel will be cursed! Russia may be tough but not tougher than The G-D of Israel and will suffer for every hair they cause to be hurt G-d forbid of The People of Israel! Russia must turn back from their sponsoring and supporting evil!

    Unfortunately this issue with the S-300 can and should not be driven to an openly convenient and mutually advantageous closure by meetings and handshakes. But a mutually advantageous closure is feasible and handy. Not to mention that Russia has already the more expensive system S-400 in production, and the newest and truly exceptionally expensive S-500 in development.

    russia has sold itself to persian money. iran is pulling russia’s strings- iran is setting up bases in syria to attack israel, all under the protection and allowance of russia. russia knows this is an act of war against israel- this is why it let israel attack iranian targets in syria for a while. after israel showed how good it is at this taking out 50 iranian targets, it seems to me that russia engineered the downing of its ilyushin prop aircraft killing its own men- knowing the syrians who shoot like wild children with missiles will do this. russia used this as a pretext to bring dozens of s-300 systems to syria linked to its own s-400 system in syria. only the developing s-500 is better. this is an act of war by russia backed by iran/iraq/syria/lebanon/hezbollah against israel. the kgb-led soviet union with its communism and backward outlook is back for sure- putin is a snake and is never to be trusted. israel deserves a strong leader not this netanyahu- who will take out these menacing s-300s who threaten israeli aircraft military and civilian all over israel: if russian men manning it are hit ah shame, that is what happens in a war and russia has declared war on israel- the short sighted bully that russia is and always has been, anti west and only thing they good at is spying and building weapons and taking drugs in sports events. not much else russia is good at- so they go around the world causing violence death injury and instability to make themselves feel better. basically they’re jealous of the west. and jealousy makes you nasty, that sums up russia.

    This may prove a hidden blessing; 2018 is a great result for Trump as it guarantees 2 terms , with a House keen on his Trade Agenda.. That will bring China in tow sooner than later . Possible to hit Russia with Regan’s methodology and break Putin’s back. UK breaks from EU gives US more depth and authority .. Putin loses an important Trump influencer in Netanyahu ..

    One of the pillars of antisemitism is that “Jews are particularly intelligent”. The comments here surely debunk that myth. I don’t want to associate with antisemits, but clearly you have dust in your eyes. Syria is a sovereign state, member of UN (unlike Taiwan e.g.). Israel conveniently didn’t sign any armistice and bombs it. Full stop. The rest is purely your biased assessment of Russia’s foreign policy and also illustrates how much you’re being brainwashed by the neocon press. When one begins to believe its own lies it is really time to ask questions.

    Bernard- Syria was falling to pieces- Assad the dictator’s time was over. That is when Syria “invited” in Russia and with pure violence and murder they re-established Assad’s murderous rule over Syria incl using chem weapons. Evil BS is what this all is. Now- Russia/Assad allows Iran to set up bases in Syria with the stated aim to attack Israel. In self defence Israel has every right to preemptively attack these bases. Iran has tried to attack Israel from these bases with drones etc and has sent advanced weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon. You are able to be a Russian supporter but honestly- you and Putin can go to hell.

    This S-300 situation reminds me of the highly electrified emotional moments when Kind Saul and Israelites stood confused against Goliath. Then David showed up. It seems a repeat of history. With this Ze’ev Elkin’s statement, I think David has showed up again! We all know how the story always end.

      dear anon. There were several times the “story” did not end well; for example 720 bce and 586, and 70ce. I just wish people could tone down the rhetoric, and get back to the bible hour. People need to consider if the bravado and bluster is contributing to the ongoing redemption, or setting up for another exile.

    This break with Russia was already predicted years ago ever since the Obama nuclear deal had billions released to Iran so that Iran ran in late 2015 to pay Russia to save Assad in Syria. Obama also failed to directly punish Assad when he used chemical weapons in 2013 in Ghouta. He was afraid of offending the Iranians due to the nuclear negotiations. Also, the Iranians influenced during the Obama nuclear agreement that the U.S. only focus and directly deal with ISIS in both Iraq and Syria because they were the biggest threat to Iran and its Shiite allies there. All in all, it is too bad that Bibi didn’t realize that Russia was in bed with Iran and its money. The hot air that Bibi was giving Putin did not compare with the money Iran is paying.

    Joe you are right my man. Obama was and is an evil force in the world especially for the West. He is responsible for the rise of Russia in part and in Russia’s dominance and violence in Syria. A disgusting man that Obama.

    Ask Poison Putins EX- Wife Lyudmilce Shkrebneva who was so scared of him and thought he might Poison and Kill her? ( She might be too scared to talk about it.?) After that she had to Divorce this Psycopathic Poisoner/Killer and escaped from him in Divorce in 2013/2014.

    Putin the Poisoner Killer is now a MUSLIM JIHADY out to KILL JEWS in Israel/USA with the help of his great best friends, Hisbolla,Iran,Syria,hamas,Islamic Jihad plus of course Poison Putin Child like Boy Soldiers dying for nothing to fight along side Muslim Poison Putins Islamic Terrorists Network.
    Poison Putin Best Mates were Mr Saddam Hussain/Mr Gaddaffi and now Mr Assad who all just like Mr Assad still continues to use Chemical Weapons on his Innocent Population so as I see it Mr Poison Putin and his Boy Like Russian Troops should be a Legitimate Target now.
    Dont EVER be WEAK or SCARED of Poison Putin because BULLIES are COWARDS like Muslim Poison Putin.
    Why would anyone want to meet up with a Muslim Poisoner like Putin that Hates JEWS like Ex- usa President Osama Obama does….Facts not Fiction.

    Israel will never be the same. Israel was doing what ever she/he wanted in Syria. No more. From now on you will loose all your powers and Golan Hights for a start. With number of people knowing that Israel was involved in 911 you will be faced with world antisemitism. The number of people knowing Mossad terrorism like 7/7 in London Bali in Indonesia and so on you will have no country in the world to hide. You spend rest of your life behind the walls you build unable lo leave Israel for ever.

    Listen you can hear the chicken’s flight as they come home to roost. Well the IDF were going to do this and they were going to do ‘that’ to the Russkies. Now they have their chance. By the way I really wouldn’t count on not being engaged by S 400’s over Syria. Go on send that flying Gold Brick the F 35 to show the Syrians whats what.

    Under all regimes after 1991, Russia had supported Israeli enemies politically, morally, economically and provided them with weapons, and voted for every anti Israel Resolution in the UN. In the the Russian General Staff and former KGB, there are alot of people who are not mere antisemites, but strongly convinced persons that Israel is the US puppet, and there is no gain for Russia in good relations with Israel. Putin who personally likes Jews unwittingly, for his own internal political reasons had started to fan Russian Imperialism and Chauvinism. Now all these people among military establishment clamouring for old glory of the Mother Russia, are trying to effect break with Israel, and Putin has no choice but to support them. Israel would be better served if Netanyahu and Lieberman would have understood that times had changed and Israel once again is dealing with Russia of the USSR of 1972 type.

      Russia has their own version of Israel and it’s called Birobidzhan. Thus, there is a conflict of interest. It wants Birobidzhan to succeed. See http://www.eao.ru/en/

    Putin won’t stay much longer in Syria. He was hoping for an international reconstruction effort that would bring juicy contracts to russian companies. Unfortunately for him, it won’t happen. The US, Saudis, Europeans won’t throw a dime. At one point next year, his army will leave Syria, except for a narrow coastal area.
    It will probably happen when another conflict will start closer to Russian borders.
    Also the Iranians will leave Syria sooner than they think, for the same reason: the return of sanctions will degenerate in sea battles in the Gulf area.

    Josephus identified Magog with the Scythians, located partly in Eastern Ukraine.
    Looks like Putin wishes to confirm the prediction – big mistake, fatal in fact.

    Bibi should have studies his nations own history particularly 1968-1973 when the russians did almost the exact same thing along both the suez canel and the golan. Gave protection to the egyptians and syrians as they ramped up their moves towards the yom kipper war. You want to stop the iranains you are going to have to knock out the russian systems and kill some commies

    Isis-rael = terrorist.
    All of you guys are so filled with hatred and retardition i just cant believe how much you are brainwashed to believe in so much stupid shit.
    Theres no need to discuss politics with you wayyyyy to much of retardition.
    Also israel is satan. The hexagram is 6 triangles with 6 points with 6 sides. 666 is israel. Star of david which is sigil of solomon is a evil symbol used by stupid magician to do useless stupid shit. Symbol was given by rotschild, has nothing to do with jewry like the lion of judea or the menorah or the lulav. Hex translated to german means curse, like the yiddish fake jews from nazi germany, like today the israeli-nazi scum which is absolutely disgusting. Hope yeshua fucks you. Retarded fucks with fake country fake god fake everything. Even your holocaust is fake. There was never 6million. If you read a book you will know how 6 million is a big disgusting lie. Like your colony.
