The Helsinki summit’s reverse impact on three leaders: Putin bolstered. Trump & Netanyahu lessened

The Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki on July 16 boosted the Russian president’s international standing – mainly because he managed to pull Donald Trump and Binyamin Netanyahu over to his court. While Putin basks in the afterglow of the summit and the successful World Cup, both Trump and Netanyahu must face the music at home.
The coming DEBKA Weekly out on Friday, July 20, analyses this dynamic, while also tracking the Helsinki summit’s after-effects on US foreign policy for North Korea and Iran, and describing how Netanyahu is being pushed into launching a major military offensive in the Gaza Strip.

    The press conference was controversial, but at an interview Putin acknowledged that terrorists are using civilians as human shields and therefore are the only ones who are to blame for their deaths. Indeed it is a widespread tactic of terrorists and f.e. also extensively used by Hamas in Gaza. I hope the international community will finally recognize this and stop to blame Israel for it and start to condemn the terrorists who are the real culprits.

      @S. Bach………Agree, but the Washington-New York-European Elites that think they run the World with Hysteria Media will not Prevail over Leadership that uses Common Sense Cool Decision Making.

      Most Attempts To Turn Foes Into Friends In A Competitive Global World that is changing faster through Innovations is showing that Current Political Elites Structures of Government cannot keep up change within Them Selves seeing they have been the problem for a long time.

      The Vast Majority of Frantic, Panic-Stricken and Rabid Rage of Previous Administrations Experts, Mainstream Media War Mongers, and DC Political Complex of Two Parties shall, will, and are being ignored by the People knowing that an Europe-American-Russia-China-India-Middle East Emerging World of Cooperation is requiring Changes as well.

      Iran, Iraq, Hamas, Hezbollah and Yemen Shiia need to Change to Save Them Selves and not Blame West and Israel. America, Russia, and Israel that won’t use Nukes on others and won’t allow Robes in Iran have them either until they Iran become Persia in Cooperation with Middle East Nations.

      Iran Regime shall be changed and until they do, they will slowly be drained of all resources until the Persian People rise up and do it with help from the outside world.

      There Is No Upside In Talking Down But There Is No Gain Without Change!

    “Anyone who thinks the U.S. government will save them ought to ask an American Indian.”

    To which we might add:

    “Anyone who thinks the Russian government will save them ought to ask a Ukrainian.”

      Agree, Nations that want Peace, Prosperity, and Progress do not need saved, they just live for Today and for better Tomorrow. America is doing what it is suppose to do look out for its future. The same as China, Russia, India, and Israel. Iran won’t save anyone either as it continues on its own Road to Perdition. Whereby, a state of Eternal Punishment and Damnation of Blaming Others into which Sinful and Unpenitent
      People Passes after Meaningless Death while looking for a Savior. Israel, Ireland, and America if need be will stand alone to guide its own People because they are the People.

      It is the Misguided that Misbehaved, and become Victims of those that use Machinations to Point Fingers Towards Others due to their own Mismanagement of Them Selves and then Blame Others. This is why Iran Robes Regime will eventually fail along with its Proxy Surrogates of Gaza’s Hamas, Lebanaon’s Hezbollah, and Yemen Houtis unless they Change from Within and Begin by Changing One Heart to Heart by reaching out turning Enemies into Friends.

      The North, Central and South American Tribal Indians did not learn this simple Truth. All fought each other and looked to European Imperialists Kings of Spain, Queens of England, and Emperors of France to save them from their own Native American Adversaries within their Regions. The Aztec Triple Alliance, Iroquois League Confederacy, Inca Empire, Mayan’s Chiefdom that often ruled over them. The same thing happen in Asia, Africa and Middle East where Tribal Rule caused Chaos and still does Today.

      The Palestinians elected Hamas in Gaza to save them because they share Hamas Values and Convictions for its Pledge to Govern in accordance with Shariia Law. now they are crying out Save Us from Israel when they need to save Them Selves from Hamas supported by Iran?

      Advance Civilizations of Nations Will Always Assimilate Weaker Civilizations Nations Based Upon Tyrants Of Death Making Excuses So They Can Rule Instead Of Promoting Education, Charity, and Individual Freedom Among All Their People, Religions, Cultures, and Tribes.

      People Of Inspiration and Perspiration Save Them Selves From The Devastation Of The Deceitful That Refuse To See The Truthful Means of Super Serviceability, Suitability, And Survival-Ability. These Values Practiced by Shiia In Iran, Iraq, Gaza, and Yemen will just lead to their own Purposeless Process of Their Own Societal Suicidal until they Change or Pass Away.

      Super Nuclear Weapons Of Mass Destruction Won’t Save Iran Or Anyone Either Just Leave Atomic Ashes!

        ”People Of Inspiration and Perspiration Save Them Selves”

        Tehillim – Psalms – Chapter 127

        1A song of ascents about Solomon. If the Lord will not build a house, its builders have toiled at it in vain; if the Lord will not guard a city, [its] watcher keeps his vigil in vain. אשִׁ֥יר הַֽמַּֽעֲל֗וֹת לִשְׁלֹ֫מֹ֥ה אִם־יְהֹוָ֚ה | לֹֽא־יִבְנֶ֬ה בַ֗יִת שָׁ֚וְא | עָֽמְל֣וּ בוֹנָ֣יו בּ֑וֹ אִם־יְהֹוָ֥ה לֹֽא־יִשְׁמָר־עִ֜֗יר שָׁ֚וְא | שָׁקַ֬ד שׁוֹמֵֽר:

        A song of ascents about Solomon: This song David recited about his son, Solomon, for he saw through the holy spirit that he [Solomon] was destined to build the Temple, and on that very day, Solomon would marry Pharaoh’s daughter, and concerning this was said (Jer. 32:31): “For this city has aroused My anger and My wrath since the day they built it.” Therefore, he recited this song. My son, why should you build a house and turn away from following the Omnipresent? Since He does not desire it, its workers have toiled at it in vain.
        [its] watcher keeps his vigil in vain: The watchman watches it in vain.

        2It is futile for you who arise early, who sit late, who eat the bread of toil, so will the Lord give to one who banishes sleep from himself. בשָׁ֚וְא לָכֶ֨ם | מַשְׁכִּ֪ימֵי ק֡וּם מְאַֽחֲרֵי־שֶׁ֗בֶת אֹֽ֖כְלֵי לֶ֣חֶם הָֽעֲצָבִ֑ים כֵּ֚ן יִתֵּ֖ן לִֽידִיד֣וֹ שֵׁנָֽא:

        It is futile for you: The craftsmen, who rise early and stay late at their work and sustain themselves with toil and labor, with bread of toil, [i.e.,] of the toil of work.
        so will the Lord give: The Holy One, blessed be He, [will give] sustenance to him who banishes his sleep from his eyes in order to engage in the Torah.
        to one who banishes sleep: Heb. לידידו שנא. to one who banishes (מנדד) sleep from his eyes.
        3Behold, the heritage of the Lord is sons, the reward is the fruit of the innards. גהִנֵּ֚ה נַֽחֲלַ֣ת יְהֹוָ֣ה בָּנִ֑ים שָֹ֜כָ֗ר פְּרִ֣י הַבָּֽטֶן:
        Behold, the heritage of the Lord: for that man [who banishes sleep from his eyes].
        sons: These are the disciples whom he sets up, who are to him like sons.
        the reward is the fruit of the innards: The reward is the fruit of the Torah that is in his heart as it is said (Prov. 22:18): “For it is pleasant that you guard them in your innards.”

      shall we also ask a Syrian?

      ‘anyone who thinks that a neo-imperial territorial national idolatry, with a false historiographic narrative, a stamp a banknote and a flag will save them, ought to ask the English.

    when the trolls are posting “comments” that are many times as long as the actual article, maybe it’s time to close the comments.
