Russian Defense Minister To Visit Israel Amid Growing U.S.-Iran Tensions

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu will arrive Israel on Monday for talks with the country’s defense and prime ministers.

This will be the first visit of the Russian defense minister since he occupied this position in 2012.

The visit will take place following an announcement of the new Iran strategy by US President Donald Trump. The US also imposed additional sanctions on the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

The Israeli media is directly linking the visit with the conflict in Syria where the Syrian-Iranian-Russian alliance playes a key role.

Earlier this year, Tel Aviv made mutliple attempts to get Moscow’s support in its attempts to reduce the Iranian influence in Syria. However, it seems no results in this goal have been achieved so far.

The upcoming talks will likely be another step in the ongoing diplomatic standoff over the conflict. Israel sees the growing Iranian influence in Syria as a direct threat to its position in the region.

Right now, Israel is likely seeking to get a place around the negotiation table used by Russia, the US, Iran and Turkey to find a final solution of the conflict. Nonetheless, it looks that Tel Aviv has little to suggest to Moscow for this.

Furthermore, even if Russia has some will to negotiate Syria-related issues with Israel, it will be very complicated to implement some Russia-Israel solution on the ground. Israel, Russia, Iran, Syria, the US and Turkey are deeply involved in the conflict and any large-scale Russia-Israel cooperation could undermine the military and diplomatic successes achieved by Moscow since its direct intervention in Syria in 2015.

    Israel’s UN membership should be revoked and their evil pedophile rape cult outlawed. After 100 UN and other international law resolutions against their flagrant and chronic scoff law crime state, and the mass rape of 1,000 Jew cult children a week, taking their virginity, infecting them with venereal disease, brain damaging and killing them. I think that it’s reasonable to outlaw Judaism to create a better Jew free future for our planet:

    “As a result, several groups have been made into recognized criminal organizations. This is not a common designation, but it has occurred on occasion, typically after a cult group has been involved with a criminal enterprise. These cults have generally been involved with activities like murder, abduction, statutory rape, or other serious crimes. Often, they hold an illegal activity to be a primary focus of their religious teachings, making adherence to the group’s beliefs a virtual guarantee of grossly illegal activity directly harming others.”

      hm, last year lot of russian ambassadors died due to heart attack :-O

      • AMHants

        I wonder why?

        What was it Mike Murrell said, about lessons learnt?
        What was it John Kirby, State Department US, said about Russians coming back in body bags and air disasters?
        What was it Nikki Haley, in the UN said, about things that happen, if you do not back the US line?

        Then all these incidents happened?

            “The Vatican revealed Tuesday that over the past decade, it has defrocked 848 priests who raped or molested children and sanctioned another 2,572 with lesser penalties, providing the first ever breakdown of how it handled the more than 3,400 cases of abuse reported to the Holy See since 2004.”

            It is something I seriously have no desire to get my head around. How people can be so deprived and the media just appears to be feeding and encouraging the beasts. Another reason I cannot vote or bother with anything Hollywood and offshoots come out with. My first thought, right or wrong, easily coerced or blackmailed, and that includes political performing artists.

          • RichardD

            If you want to get the problem corrected, you need to get your head around it.

          • AMHants

            I am so not going there, I do not need to see the images. You can still be vocal and fully argue against it, but, that does not mean you need to want anything to do with viewing the images. Personally, I find that a form of conding and encouraging those images to be created and those children to be abused, by those that claim they are against it. It might be your way, but, seriously it is not mine.

          • RichardD

            It’s evidence of a crime that needs to be prosecuted. It’s used in public civil and criminal court every day.

          • AMHants

            I am all for the prosecution, with full force of the law, but, have no interest seeing the images.

          • RichardD

            That’s your problem not mine. I’m trying to get the problem corrected and people seeing it for what it is is part of that. You don’t get convictions without evidence, and the evidence that I’m providing is prima facia, and is sufficient to obtain felony convictions.

          • AMHants

            I have not made any accusations against you. Just stated why I refuse to look at the images. Also, I am not anti-semetic as there are good and bad in all sections of society.

          • RichardD

            “I find that a form of conding and encouraging those images to be created and those children to be abused, by those that claim they are against it.”

            The problem needs to be exposed to correct it. That’s what I’m doing.
            The problem is Jews, the solution is to get rid of them. That’s what outlawing their evil cult does, it creates a Jew free future. I’ve covered the whys and hows, now the do’s need to be implemented for the final solution to humanity’s Jew problem, which is legal, moral, and ethical eradication of their evil cult for the crimes and evil that they’re guilty of.

            The Jew pedophile rape cult belongs in the trash can of human history with castration and slavery to create a better future free of these crimes. It’s two faced, and I run into a lot from people who condemn Jew pedophile rape, but don’t want to outlaw it like any other cult guilty of the same crimes.

            Jews aren’t special, they’re not God’s chosen people, they’re criminals who need the exemptions that they have in law extinguished in jurisdictions where they have them. And to be arrested and prosecuted for their crimes. And to have their evil cult which has pedophile rape as a primary part of it’s practices outlawed.

            It’s pretty clear from their history, actions and words that they have no intention of stopping oral suction circumcision. When a law was passed in NYC requiring consent forms, one was filed in the years that the law was active, and 99.9% of the circumcisions were performed without following the consent law:

            “The Bloomberg administration required the consents after several outbreaks of herpes in the Orthodox community.

            But health officials said that they had received only one consent form from a mohel since the policy began, and feared that further regulation would drive the practice underground.”

            Pedophilia is a human problem, not necessarily related with some specific group of people. What happen is that people consider that since such a person is a Rabin or Pastor or Priest they are above any (ab)normal human behavior, but this is totally wrong. In fact, religion places (judaic, catholic, protestant, islamic) are the most danger places for children because of this people attitude toward religion, and some religions are more danger for children than others (catholic and judaic). Many times the same offended people try to cover up this bad behavior since they believe that religion must be presented always as good thing, it does not matter what. That is the problem. I heard about a New York Rabin who committed this crime for more than 40 years, and all jew community knew about this, but they pretend that nothing happen because he was the most representative of the jew religion. And one can find examples also in catholic and protestant religions as well.

          • RichardD

            The Catholic church knows that it has a problem and is trying to stamp it out. Pedophile rape is a primary Jew ritual which is why Judaism should be outlawed.

          • Clive Hurston

            The Catholic church was long ago infiltrated by Zionists. That’s how they operate strategically; they work their way in with subtlety, then destroy from within. They explained their plans for this in their grand formula for world control, The Protocols . .

          • RichardD

            They’re a parasitical disease.

          • Free man

            You’re one sick person.

          • RichardD

            It’s called truth moron. Something that Jew pedophile rape cultists hate because it exposes all of their crime and evil.

            The first step in correcting a problem is identifying it, and Jews are the problem.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            i blocked this animal.

          • RichardD

            You’re the lying Jew pedophile rape cult supporter, not me. You deny that they rape their children, when it’s indisputable that they do. Miscreants like you are part of the problem.

          • John Whitehot

            dude, seriously.

          • RichardD

            What’s your point?

        • Solomon Krupacek

          boy, look for people, who execute with polonium230. those killed also these ambassadors.

          • AMHants

            Now how does one die from polonium 230 poisoning, poured from a teapot, by a a waiter? Don’t you find it strange that nobody else, that came into contact with the tea pot and contents were affected?

            Do double agents, trying to sell very potent toxins, ever mishandle their goods?

          • Solomon Krupacek

            polonium230 is so expensive, that nobody can pay on black marjet. only russia and usa have large amounts.

          • AMHants

            Are you saying you cannot get it on the black market, if you deal in that type of trade?

            Anyway, if I wanted to post comments on Litvinenko I would find a forum and that focuses on that story.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            no chance to buy.

            litvinenko was killed by fsb. clear story. post soviet countries like poisomns. also yushchenko was poisoned. in austria rescued his life.

          • AMHants

            Not buying it. Accept mishandled what he was selling.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            blabla

          • BMWA1

            Why not private Russian oligarch in chaotic 90s??

          • Solomon Krupacek

            firstly, the radioactive materials are strictly controlled. this is not calcium or iodine.
            secondly, they had no interest. litvinenko was deserteur, sold information, therefore died. it is OK, but killing with polonium …

          • John Whitehot

            one wonders why he didn’t get a bullet like every other poor bastard

          • gustavo

            Wrong, you do not need large amount of this substance to kill a person, as I mentioned before, one microgram is more than enough (Araffat), and you will not have trace of this substance after few years (look up french analysis of Arafat body).

          • gustavo

            The radioactive substance must be inside your body to cause the fatal damage. You can handle with your hand and nothing will happen to you.

          • AMHants

            I do not actually care. So many enemies one makes when playing one side off against another, when you decide to be a double agent. At the end of the day, who had the most to lose and it was not Russia?

          • John Whitehot

            there’s a better molecule than poplonium230.

            it’s called lead.

          • gustavo

            Nop, polonium230 kill you with just one microgram and leave not trace at all after few years (Araffat, example).

        • RichardD

          Yes, Jewmerica is a huge problem for humanity:

          Yes, and some of them work for the Russian security services.

          • Free man

            There is no need. Relations between Russia and Israel are great.
            Russians understand each other great.

          • RichardD

            They are, then why are they diametrically opposed in Syria and elsewhere?

          • Free man

            You do not really understand international diplomacy.
            If you had the ability to examine in depth the positions of these two countries on a variety of issues, you would understand how close they are.
            But you’d better focus on what you’re good at – displaying pedophile images.

          • RichardD

            That’s a lie. Israel and the Jews are responsible for the war in Syria and much of the conflict in the middle east. Russia is opposed to what Israel is doing and is defeating the criminally insane Jew world order on the battlefield and in the court of world public opinion.

            The relation between jew russians and jews of Israel is great, just to be clearer.

          • Free man

            The Russian defense minister is a Christian and he gets along well with Israel’s Jewish / Russian defense minister.
            It hurts you to see it, but it’s reality.

        • gustavo

          Jew russians is not the same as russians, and the same can be said of any nation.

          • Free man

            The defense ministers of these two countries look very similar.
            You will be happy to hear that their cooperation will continue to flourish.
            And hopefully Russia will continue to purchase advanced weapons from Israel.

          • Free man

            They look very similar to me and neither of them really likes Arabs.

      • RichardD

        I’m sure that that’s part of the agenda.

  • Melotte 22

    Well Zion minister publicly stated that Israel preferred ISIS to current Syrian Government, in order to prevent Iran’s growing influence in the Middle East.
    Israel lost. All they are doing now is pushing idiots in Washington to attack Iran and that is what this visit is all about. To give an ultimatum to Iran through Russia, ‘leave Syria’ or face Dotard and psychopats in Washington.

  • Thegr8rambino

    i hope he is there to tell satanyahoo, “if you or your US buddies try anything stupid against iran, it will be the last thing you ever do” something like that

    • goingbrokes

      Not necessary. US has no teeth to bully Iran militarily – unless the US troops want to make the ultimate sacrifice en masse – trust me they do not want to do that. Neither does Israel. My guess this is a serious attempt to corrupt Sergei Shoigu, so that he will be manipulable later on. They will try to find what his pet vice is and then provide that vice for him and film him secretly. That’s how they nab powerful politicians all the time. They want information from him. They want to tap him over the years for critical military information. So watch out Sergei. Don’t let them get to you.

      • Thegr8rambino

        So did Israel invite him? Or shoigu wanted to go?

        • goingbrokes

          Usually the head honchos are invited – but I don’t have any specific info on that. But who knows, maybe the Russians have something in mind. If that’s the case no doubt it will be something very ingenious.
