Putin Says Israel Is A ‘Russian-Speaking’ Country, As Kremlin Looks To Peel Off Another American Ally

Barack Hussein Obama famously despised The Jewish State and its leader Benjamin Netanyahu. The former American president was caught on hot mic saying as much in Europe. Obama attempted to give Iran the bomb, did everything he could do harm the Israeli-American relationship and block Israeli land-use policy in favor of Arab neighbors. The Democratic Party, a third of the country, is as we speak demonizing Israel and calling for divestitures, boycotts, et cetera, et cetera.

This reality has been heard loud and clear in Jerusalem. Hence, Israel is continuing to hedge its bets for its security by looking for friends elsewhere. The Trump administration just recently pushed Israel to block a planned port acquisition by a Chinese firm in Haifa.

Russia would like nothing better than to fill the void the Obama administration opened wide. Netanyahu has flown to Moscow multiple times to meet with Russian President Putin to hammer out military deconfliction in Syria.

Putin recently made comments on Israel politics during a meeting between the two leaders in Sochi, Russia.

“We always considered them our people, compatriots. And, of course, we are not indifferent to what kind of people will come into the Israeli parliament,” Putin said, reported RFERL.

Today President Putin made further comments joining the cultures of the Russian Federation and Israel.

“We consider Israel a Russian-speaking country,” Putin said Tuesday at the Keren Hayesod foundation’s annual conference in Moscow, reported The Moscow Times.

“Russians and Israelis have ties of family and friendship,” he said. “Our nations are united by common and often tragic pages in history.

“The positions of Russia and Israel, the peoples of our countries, coincide. We consider any attempt to revise the outcome of the war, to distort the truth and justify fascism and its lapdogs, completely unacceptable.”

Israel is home to the world’s largest population of Russian Jews, a large portion of whom emigrated there from the former Soviet Union in the 1990s. About 17% of Israel’s population is Russian-speaking, added The Moscow Times.

With such a large former-Soviet population, Israeli foreign policy may not be so intertwined with American’s goals in the future. The damage Obama manifested was great.

“Putin Says Israel Is A ‘Russian-Speaking’ Country…”

There’s a lot of truth in that comment. Many refugees to Israel have come from Russia or the surrounding Russian speaking territories. True, they speak Russian, but they think Israeli. I don’t think that will have much impact upon the friendship between Israel and the US.

While it may sometimes seem as if Israel is friendly to Russia, it’s nothing more than a diplomatic platitude.
the reality is more of a cold stand-off.
I’m a Russian speaking jew living in Israel and despise Putin and Russian geopolitics.
as do most of my Russian speaking friends.

Israelis remember very well that:
1. it was the Russians that built the Iranian nuclear reactors.
and supplied them with S-300
2. it’s the Russians/Soviets who always were and remain the arms suppliers to our worst enemies including for example Saddam’s Iraq and Egypt
3. it was soviet pilots flying Egyptian MIG planes that attacked Israel in ’73
4. Russia is today one of the main enablers of the deranged Mullahs.
5. It’s under Russian protection that Syria has been overrun by Hezbollah and Iran
6. It was Russian supplied Kornets and other missiles to Hezbollah that made the 2006 war bloody.

So no need to worry, Russian speaking Israelis know very well who their friends are, and it’s definitely not the corrupt kremlin.
I hope for the sake of normal Russians that the corrupt Putin regime is brought down and Russia becomes a normal sane state.
