The Saker: “Russia, Israel and the Values of “Western Civilization” – Where Is the Truth?”

Donate

Written by The Saker; Originally appeared at The Unz Review

First, what’s the deal with this obsession about bombing entire nations back into the “stone age”?

Very interesting article in RT today: “IDF chief turned PM candidate touts body count & bombing Gaza into ‘stone age’ in campaign ad” (please read the full thing – it is short and very enlightening).  When I saw that, I immediately had a flash back to a (truly brilliant, if evil) US diplomat, James Baker, who promised Iraqi Prime Minister Tarik Aziz (whom the Empire kept in jail until his death in spite of the fact that 79 year old man suffered from depression, diabetes, heart disease, and ulcers) that the Empire would “bring it back to the stone age“.

The Saker: "Russia, Israel and the Values of “Western Civilization” – Where Is the Truth?"

Benny Gantz – the new face of “Western civilization”?

Now, Benny Gantz is your typical Israeli Zionazi nutcase with all that entails, but this can hardly be said of James Baker who was one of the most educated and brilliant diplomats the USA ever produced.  So what’s this thing about bringing those who dare defy the AngloZionist Empire back to the “stone age”.  Coincidence?  You tell me!

I sure don’t think so.

The Israeli butchery in Gaza enjoyed the massive support of the Israeli people who even organized special “viewing locations” for the joy of seeing Palestinian civilians (the vast majority of the people the Israelis murdered in Gaza) massacred.  Which is not very different from the way the US Americans (and their European vassals) organized “viewing locations” in their TV sets for the joy of seeing Iraqi civilians (the vast majority of the people the USA and its vassals murdered in Iraq) massacred.  The difference is only in numbers: in Gaza the Israelis only murdered “only” about 1500 Palestinianswhereas the USA can pride itself on having massacred well over a million Iraqis.

Still not convinced?

Then how about Mr MAGA promising to “devastate” the DPRK? or, even better, to make Iran “SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE” (all in caps as in the original).

Now if this was a schoolyard or, say, a Harley-Davidson biker meeting, I would say that this is just the kind of empty talk of insecure males trying to compensate for their insecurities by clumsily affirming their manhood with roaring macho threats.

After all, in the real world, both the US and Israel got thoroughly whooped each time they took on an enemy which was not defenseless (the best example being, of course, the “Divine Victory” of Hezbollah against Israel (and the US, of course, which had promised a “new Middle East” just before the Israeli attack) in 2006.

But our planet is not a schoolyard and thousands and even millions died as a result of that kind of mindset.  And a President who thinks in “tweets” worthy of a 7th grade pimply 13-year old is outright frightening (or, at least, ought to be).

Now it is rather unsurprising that the western Zionazi press would 1) blame it all on the Palestinians and their supporters 2) turn away its prudish eyes from such language and massacres 3) go back to blaming Russia for everything imaginable (and even unimaginable).

What is more interesting is all the self-declared anti-Zionists who actually blame *Russia* for not doing enough to protect Syria, or Iran, or [fill in the blank].  I already thoroughly debunked the flawed logic and arguments of that group in my article “Why is Putin “allowing” Israel to bomb Syria” so I won’t repeat it all here and will assume that the reader will have read that.

And yet, after the latest Israeli air strikes in Syria (which also follow a pattern I predicted here) I am, again, getting panicked emails about Putin/Russia “betrayed/gave up” Syria or how the S-300s/Pantsirs are “not working”, Putin is a “Zionist agent”, etc.  Sigh, rolleyes…

[Sidebar: for one thing, that kind of nonsense shows an amazing level of illiteracy in military affairs.  Why?  Because all these Israeli attacks on (alleged) pro-Iranian or even Iranian positions were small, even if annoying, pinpricks, especially when  compared to the very real losses suffered by Iranian and pro-Iranian forces in combat (real combat, not the pretend-combat for Hollywood the Israelis and their US vassals have mostly performed in the past decades).  Just because each such pinprick results in hours of Israeli (and pro-Israeli) chest-thumping does not mean that it was in any way effective in deterring Iran or its allies.  The truth is that Iran and its allies are all over Syria (they mostly came after the AngloZionist decided to trigger a revolution against Assad – bravo AngloZionist geniuses!!) and that they ain’t leaving].

In Russian this type of behavior, which is really a political manipulation tactic, is called “перевести стрелки” or, roughly, “change focus”, or simply “obfuscate” (again, for a detailed discussion of this, please see my article “Why is Putin “allowing” Israel to bomb Syria“).  So let’s bring the focus right back to where it belongs: Israel and the total support the so-called “West” has given it for decades.

By the way, Russia is also guilty, at least in my opinion, of overlooking the plight of the Palestinians (I made my own distress about the Russian position very clear in my piece “It All Depends On Your Values“).  And yes, there is most definitely a powerful pro-Israel lobby in Russia too, including, alas, in the Russian White House and even in the Kremlin.  But the difference between Russia’s stance towards the issue of Israel and it’s murderous policies and the stance of the West could not be more different anyway.  Simply put:

  • Russia does condemn Israel when the latter acts in violation of international law and norms of civilized behavior and Russia does offer support, both political and military, to “resistance” countries such as Syria.
  • The West supports Israel no matter what and finances and arms it to the teeth and supports its genocidal policies to the hilt.

Most importantly, Russians never say that Israel stands for “Russian values” or is the “only democracy in the Middle-East”.  So while Russia does not, to my immense regret and shame, take a truly principle-driven position like Iran, she does not obsequiously use every opportunity to show her total and unconditional love for Israel and everything Israel does.

The difference here is not only one of quantity, but also one of quality or, if you prefer, a quantitative change which eventually leads to a qualitative shift.  There is a difference between first looking out for your own self-interest and being a prostitute, is there not?

Blurring or otherwise obfuscating such crucial and profound distinctions is a clever form of deception.

You might ask “but what *are* Russian values then?

What’s the deal with Holy Russia then?!

Fair enough.  Right now Russia is still in search of herself.  She is a project, a moving target, a nation desperately trying to re-gain her true and full sovereignty and to (finally!) get rid of a powerful 5th columnist gang inside the ruling and wealthy elites who simply want to make more money while aping the West.  And yet, even that somewhat confused nation which is looking for her true roots and identity (which might take a very long time, Solzhenitsyn predicted that 200 years would be needed for Russia to truly recover) did not lose the very core of her true civilizational values.

The Saker: "Russia, Israel and the Values of “Western Civilization” – Where Is the Truth?"

Saint Alexander Nevsky

In the distant 13th century the Russian Prince and Saint Alexander Nevsky famously declared “Не в силе Бог, а в правде” which can be translated as “God is not in force/power, but in truth/justice“.

Many centuries later, in a year 2000 movie (the year Putin came to power) called “Brother 2” a very different kind of Russian hero, Danila Bagrov, has a (now famous) monologue with an American and rhetorically asks him “tell me American, where is strength/power found?  In money?” and proceeds to answer himself and say “I think that strength/power is in the truth/justice, he who has the truth/justice is stronger“.

[Sidebar: I am translating the word “pravda” (yes, yes, that same word “pravda” as in the Soviet newspaper) as “truth/justice” as depending on the context it can have either one, or even both, of these meanings.  And even more complex Slavic concept of truth would be “istina” which Father Pavel Florensky discussed in this famous book “The Pillar and Ground of the Truth: An Essay in Orthodox Theodicy in Twelve Letters” of which I posted a translated crucial passage here and which I *highly* recommend as a “must read” to anybody interested in understanding the Russian civilization, culture and history]

So one 13th Russian said that God is in Truth and another 20th said that strength is in Truth.  And both were facing a threat from the West when they made their statements; seven centuries later, and so little has changed…  amazing, no?

Not a coincidence if you ask me.

The Saker: "Russia, Israel and the Values of “Western Civilization” – Where Is the Truth?"

Sergei Bodrov as “Danila Bagrov” in the movie Brother-2

I already hear the reply of those lobotomized by western materialism who will, no doubt, say something along the lines of “oh please! don’t give us this propaganda about “Holy Russia” again!  One quick look at Russian history immediately shows that Russia was never so holy and that, in fact, amazing levels of evil, depravity, corruption and even pathological sadism could be found throughout her long and bloody history and also in our times!“.

And I can only admit that there is, alas, much truth to that statement.  And there is still much evil, pathology and corruption in today’s Russia, no argument here!

But there is also much this statement is completely missing.

First, right next to an amazing degree of evil and depravity, Russian history is also filled with no less amazing cases of true holiness, from Saint Boris and Saint Gleb to the millions of saints and New Martyrs and Confessors of the 20th century.

But that is not even the main issue here.  The main issue here is that the concept of “Holy Russia” is not primarily descriptive, but *prescriptive*.  It is a call, an ideal, something which modern people with the crude consumerism and generally materialism-suppressed noussimply cannot understand or even imagine, but which inspired many generations over the 1000 years+ of Russian history to live a life maybe still in the world, but not “of this world” (John 15:19)!

This is why, in spite of three centuries of rule by foreign elites and 70+ years of materialism run amok, an otherwise very modern suspense movie hero like Danila Bagrov can still speak of what the truth is and where it can be found and why the Russian audience “gets it”, even the atheists.

Check out this dialog in this short, English subtitled, excerpt:

Notice something important here: Danila does not think that only the American is a money-worshiping and clueless idiot, he says “even my brother believes [that the truth] is in money“.  So yes, there are plenty of nous-suppressed people in Russia too.  And I won’t even go into what most Russians who live in the West think as so many of them need to justify their own voluntary exile from Russia by either advocating that Russians resume aping westerners or by declaring that Russia is really no different from any other western country.  These are the folks who have rejected any form of true spirituality for a rather bizarre form of worship of consumerism.  And yeah, a lot of them are Russian, at least by birth or by language (if not by culture or spirit).

[Sidebar:  there was a time when the West was no different from the East in terms of spirituality, ethos, values and even holiness.  But that all came to a gradual full stop with each passing century following the breakaway of the Frank-occupied Rome from the rest of the Christian world.  Now all is left is either a post-modern wasteland à la Conchita Wurst (see “it” “pray” with Latin officials here – amazing sight to behold indeed!) or a rather nasty nationalist and even racist blow-back to this postmodernism degeneracy à la Alt-Right.  What a crying shame after 1000 years of real western Christianity!  There have been many western saints and martyrs like SS Boris and Gleb, but there is no “Danila Bagrov” on western TV screens today.  All that is left of the once Christian West are thousands of holy relics of western saints nobody cares about, least of all the Pope and his minions at the Vatican…]

Back to our original topic:

And finally, what’s the deal with the “only democracy in the Middle-East“?

What is “Israel” really?  It is a democracy only in the modern Russian sense of the word, meaning that “democracy is the power of the democrats“.  In this case, these “democrats” happen to be racist nutcases who have a religious belief (literally, see here) in their racist uniqueness and their God-given right to massacre the semi-human goyim(again: literally, see here) and who don’t give a damn about “western values” (well, other than impunity, consumerism and violence). It is most certainly the country which is the only and last *official* racist state on the planet (see herehere, and here).

And contrary to the fantasies of various Jew-haters, this has absolutely nothing to do with “the Jews” or being Jewish, and everything to do with an exceptionally toxic interpretation of the Old Testament by Pharisaic rabbis who developed a God- and man-hating religion in response to the galut (the exile from Palestine of those Jews who rejected Christ) and to the tremendous success of Christianity.  As for modern Zionism, it is nothing more than a transposition of the very same racist assumptions and implications of Pharisaic Judaism to a materialistic milieu, that’s all.

Does that make Israeli a part of the “western civilization”?

You tell me!

But if your reply is “yes”, don’t come whining when I point that out to you! And if your reply is “no” – then, tell me: how is it that no western politician can agree with you without risking his career and reputation?

Anyway, I think that it is high time for those who find the mote in Russia’s “eye” to look at the huge and densely populated forest of their own civilization’s “eye” and maybe try to imitate the beautiful example of those westerners who sailed for Gaza and still do all they can to help the oppressed Palestinians, no?  And how about showing some gratitude to Iran for being pretty much the only country on the planet not only to support the Palestinians, but actually accept the sacrifice of a lot of lives (and resources) to help them?!  Don’t they deserve our gratitude and admiration for their courage?

You really don’t like Putin?  Fine.  But rather than place your trust and hopes in the lies of Mr MAGA or the Clinton gang, maybe you ought to make Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei your true hero, no?  Or, at least, “al-Sayyid Hassan” (Nasrallah)!

If the West persists on it’s current path, it will die like the “sad old man” in Roger Water’s superb title “Dogs

You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder
You know it’s going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you get older
And in the end you’ll pack up and fly down south
Hide your head in the sand,
Just another sad old man
All alone and dying of cancer
And when you loose control, you’ll reap the harvest you have sown
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
And it’s too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw around
So have a good drown, as you go down, all alone
Dragged down by the stone

Time will tell, of course, but my own belief is that both Russia and the West can only be truly saved by a return to the values of repentance and self-limitation which Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote about while still in the Soviet Union in the distant year 1973 (full text in PDF format here).  The same Alexander Solzhenitsyn, already in the West a full decade later, also warned us that only a return to true spirituality and God could save the world.  Again, I can only agree with him no matter how ridiculous this may sound to western (and Russian!) materialists, “cultural Christians”, or any other nous-suppressed person nowadays.

But that’s only one simple guy’s opinion.

So you, tell me!  Where do you think strength comes from?  Israel?

    On Saker’s positions on Russia vs. Israel I can not agree more.
    I have no words how much I am disgusted with all forum mad haters of Jews (neo-NAZI and other) who want to stick all the blame on Russia for not being in service of their, Iranian, Hezbollah even Syrian personal revenge on Jews!

    If in Putin’s place I would do EXACTLY the SAME thinking about RUSSIAN INTEREST only!

    Why the hell would Russia assist Iran in their private Jihad on Israel?!
    Or even Assad ?
    As far as I remember well the only objective for Russia is to liberate Syria from terrorists.
    That was only reason why they got involved that is the only thing they AGREED with Assad!

        They expect that Russia shooting down Jew jets from the sky just to protect private Iranian Jihad against Jews when attacked in Damascus region
        Yet Iranian PUSSIES don’t get involved themselves by attacking Israel as revenge with their FUCKING “thousands of missiles” !
        They are butt hurt and COMPLAIN that Russia didn’t defend them in the last attack !

        I say FUCK THEM !
        They are not in Syria to liberate country they are too busy in piling up missiles for annihilation of Israel !

      I have no words how much I am disgusted with all forum mad haters of Jews (neo-NAZI and other) who want to stick all the blame on Russia for not being in service of their, Iranian, Hezbollah even Syrian personal revenge on Jews!

      Strangely enough, it’s none other than the Israelis that are assisting actual neonazis in the Ukraine to wage war on ethnic Russians in the Donbass, but I digress…

      Why the hell would Russia assist Iran in their private Jihad on Israel?!
      Or even Assad ?

      What private Jihad? What attack has Assad, Hezbollah & Iran launched at Israel preemptively? It’s always been in response to Israeli aggression, provocations and annexations going back to the 70’s & 80’s.

      As far as I remember well the only objective for Russia is to liberate Syria from terrorists. That was only reason why they got involved that is the only thing they AGREED with Assad before arriving in Syria!

      Interesting, that’s also Iran & Hezbollah’s only objective too. After all, they were invited into Syria by the legitimate President of Syria. By the way, who created, funded, armed, trained, chauffeured and even gave medical treatment to the terrorists operating in Syria? (Here’s a hint, it’s not Iran)

      I’m glad you’ve outed yourself though, jako. Good day, Zionist Sympathizer.

        Until March 2014, (I think) Israel had eyes on Crimea, to resurrect the 1918 Bolshevik idea, luckily shelved, to declare that region also a Jewish state.

          Very disappointing comment I have honestly considered you to be very inteligent

          • BMWA1

            Crimea had a special fate in store for it, there would be a use of Tartars to pry off the region in its Semi-Autonomous status, plus US military bases would put it gradually out of control of Kiev. Turkey also eyed this area, and the 1918 plan is simply a matter of historical documentation. See 1923-1926 period in Crimean history and Jewish resettlement plans.

            I am not saying that you were not saying the truth.
            All I am saying that by making wrong comment in the wrong moment you are just supporting false narrative (of this hidden NEO-NAZI, Islamist forum) that Jews are major enemy of everybody including Russia !

            And they parroting that simply because they want Russia to take down Israeli warplanes and destroy Israel for their own personal motives!
            Where have you been don’t you read what majority of the comments is saying?
            They keep permanently accusing Russia for being to soft against Jews all the time!
            They want to fight against Jews to the last Russian!
            And that is all what all this is about !

            I couldn’t care less if Iran destroys whole Israel but I do care when they pushing Russia to do that !
            Russia has much bigger enemies to think about like US & NATO !
            Not to do favors to Iran against Israel for Iranian personal interests and ambitions!

          • BMWA1

            No, WW3 does not pay. Israel in effect directs much of US policy in Near East and elsewhere), so it is an escalation target. It is important to separate Syria and Russia responses here for that reason. Best policy is to continue war IN Syria and not try to extend it beyond its borders. This limited war stance was also practiced by Soviets, in Korea for example, where air forces had a restricted role.

            Despite AIPAC’s efforts to get him un-elected he was re-elected Congress anyhow, unlike the great and fearless American Hero former US Representative Cynthia McKinney, a true American Patriot who tells the truth, the whole truth.
            Representative McKinney refused to sign this AIPAC Loyalty Oath to put Israel first even over America, which of course would be a direct violation of the Oath of Office any Member of Congress takes upon being seated.
            Why is it such a serious matter to get these signers of the AIPAC Loyalty Oath out of Congress? The reason is obvious, without these Traitors who are sellouts to AIPAC and Israel, America could not have been transformed into a virtual province of Israel.

            Nor could America have been transformed into an Israeli slave-state, provider and war-fighter for Israel with an endless supply of American Soldiers to use as Israeli cannon-fodder in their quest to expand and create “greater Israel”.

            Very few Americans know of this treasonous betrayal by all but one Member of Congress. This betrayal is a very serious, grievous violation of their Oath of Office and also American espionage laws and it constitutes Treason. Why do we know for certain this signing the AIPAC Loyalty Oath is Treason?
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImFMcbF2MYY
            We know this for certain because Treason is the capital offense of betraying one’s country and aiding or abetting an enemy of one’s own country, people and one’s government. Yes, but isn’t Israel an important ally of America?

            The only reason the average American does not yet know this is because the Major Mass Media is controlled by six media moguls who answer to run Israeli linked large American investment house that works through Switzerland. Together these six media mogul who are all traitors have essentially created an illegal New Monopoly, a true News Cartel that does little more than feed the American public a continuing stream of USG propaganda, USG big lies and USG false-narratives.

            It is our job at Veterans Today and the rest of the Alternative media of the Internet to get the truth out to everyone and expose this USG propaganda, these big USG lies and USG false-narratives. Soon unless stopped the Internet, which is the World’s New Gutenberg Press, will bust the Controlled Major Mass media (CMMM) and this truth will dissipate to every America. This will bring an end to the espionage done against America in America by AIPAC, the ADL, the SPLC and other Israeli-linked foreign espionage fronts.

            Right now the traitors inside the beltway are meeting frequently and desperately trying to come up with a sneaky way to censor and restrict the Alternative media of the Internet. It is unlikely that the American people will allow this and such a move could result in a new American revolution fought in the street of America by millions or armed Americans against the USG and its stooges and Traitors.

            But there is another good reason to immediately suspend all aid, monetary and military to Israel. That is the fact that we know with 100% certainty the Israel has a large nuclear bomb arsenal and that such is a violation of American law and international agreements to support any nation that HAS NOT signed the nuclear Non-Proliferation Agreement, which Israel HAS NOT signed.

By Max Blumenthal The Grayzone Project has released scenes from an investigative Al Jazeera undercover documentary, “The Lobby – USA,” whose publication was blocked by the government of Qatar under Israel lobby pressure.

            The footage reveals how Emergency Committee on Israel Executive Director Noah Pollak and the right-wing Hoover Institution organized an astroturfed a protest aimed at disrupting the 2016 Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) national conference. According to one Hoover Institution campus fellow, “This is the first foot soldier activity that I think we’ve been forced to do.” A Hoover fellow who identified himself as “Marshall,” explained the background of the protest: “It was basically like Noah Pollak coming in and being like, ‘Look, there are these jihadis who basically support suicide bombing, and they’re on a campus and you have to stop them.’” “It’s a chance to shout at Arabs,” another fellow interjected. Marshall, who is African American, divulged his fear that some media outlet might publish “a photo of Deon [another Hoover Institute fellow] and me together, and we’re just like clearly identifiable. They’re like, “Oh, who are these traitors who sold out to the Jewish conspiracy for money?’” He then joked: “I’m like, ‘We did! We cost $50,000 plus benefits.” Later, as the bus neared the SJP event, Marshall aired more doubts about the staged protest: “No, no, no — this is astroturfing… It’s when you set up fake protests.” “It’s not that astroturfing is wrong, it’s just that your astroturf has to be, like, committed,” he lamented. Months before Al Jazeera’s investigative unit went undercover in the Israel lobby, it interviewed me about the way the lobby operates. In the footage presented in this clip, I can be seen explaining that its outfits in Washington have been “manufacturing the image of a grassroots movement by taking corporate money and basically paying people to appear as activists.” The astroturfed protest organized by Israel lobbyist Noah Pollak, seen to the center-right with a sign apparently referring to Russian and Iranian military efforts in Syria A censorship campaign to conceal Israel lobby dirt Pollak’s Emergency Committee for Israel is part of a coalition of right-wing and Israel lobbying organizations that have devoted increasing resources to undermining the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, or BDS. Al Jazeera’s censored “The Lobby” documentary exposes intensive collaboration between these US-based cut-outs, the Israeli military-intelligence apparatus, and pro-Israel oligarchs like Sheldon Adelson and Adam Milstein. For that reason, Israel lobby forces enacted a pressure campaign that appears to have succeeded in suppressing Al Jazeera’s release of “The Lobby.” The campaign consisted of visits by high profile Israel lobbyists Alan Dershowitz and Morton Klein to Doha, as well as threats from Congress to force Al Jazeera to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act if it aired the documentary. Qatar has since donated $250,000 to Klein’s Zionist Organization of America and other hardline Israel lobby outfits. Electronic Intifada reported in June that Qatar decided to nix “The Lobby” over “national security concerns.” According to reporters Asa Winstanley and Ali Abunimah, there were concerns in Qatari governing circles that release of the documentary could even prompt the US to pull its Al Udeid Airbase from the Gulf country at a time when it was under embargo from Saudi Arabia and UAE, both close allies of Israel and the US. Despite the ban, pieces of the documentary have begun to trickle out. This August 27, Electronic Intifada released footage identifying Adam Milstein as a moving force behind the malicious anti-Palestinian blacklisting operation known as Canary Mission. The report came on the heels of a Grayzone exclusive naming pro-Israel lawyer Howard David Sterling as the owner of Canary Mission’s web domain. The footage revealed here by the Grayzone shows in vivid detail how the Israel lobby has compensated for its lack of grassroots influence by essentially paying for protesters. Xenophobic diatribes and terrorism charges “just to provoke everyone” When the Hoover Institute conservative campus cadres arrived at their protest destination, they were herded into a room to receive their marching orders from Pollak and Yael Lerman Mazar, the director of legal affairs for the Israel lobbying outfit, Standwithus. Lerman urged the protesters to use “peaceful, good language.” At the same time, she instructed them to “stay on message” with reporters by emphasizing that “SJP is a hate group” and that “SJP endorses violence, terrorism, things like that.” Among the outlets that covered the staged protest was the Free Beacon, a neoconservative website whose publisher, Michael Goldfarb, has also served as an advisor to Pollak’s Emergency Committee. When the protesters finally assembled to confront SJP members, they unveiled provocative banners and barked inflammatory taunts. “Hey SJP, what do you think of this? Resistance? Child suicide bombers?” Pollak shouted at the student activists. Israel lobbyist Noah Pollak taunts SJP student activists “Real baby killers, these terrorists. They kill women, they kill children, they don’t care about anything,” a Hoover fellow exclaimed. “They rape women too, all the time,” remarked another. During a private conversation with “Tony,” the Al Jazeera undercover reporter who filmed the documentary with a hidden camera, Pollak explained his smash-mouth strategy: “The activism has to be very provocative and, like, attention getting and, like, total no-fucks-given. We’re going to be more pro-Israel than you can even imagine. Just to, like, provoke everyone.” In arguing that his tactics were more likely to find an audience in the US than in the home country of “Tony,” the Israel lobbyist unleashed a xenophobic diatribe. “The majority of Americans are pro-Israel,” Pollak said. “Whereas, if you take a poll of Israel in the UK, it’s just pure hatred of Israel. You’re country, like, basically let half of fucking Pakistan move in. So you have a different problem than we do here.” Max Blumenthal Max Blumenthal is an award-winning journalist and the author of books including best-selling Republican Gomorrah: Inside the Movement That Shattered the Party, Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel, The Fifty One Day War: Ruin and Resistance in Gaza, and The Management of Savagery, which will be published later this year by Verso.

            Censored by Qatar
            The film was suppressed after the government of Qatar came under intense pressure not to release it – ironically from the very same lobby whose influence and antics the film exposes.
            Clayton Swisher, Al Jazeera’s head of investigations, revealed in an article for The Forward in March that Al Jazeera had sent more than 70 letters to individuals and organizations who appear in or are discussed in the film, providing them with an opportunity to respond.
            Only three did so. Instead, pro-Israel groups have endeavored to suppress the film that exposes the lobby’s activities.
            In April, Al Jazeera’s management was forced to deny a claim by the hard-right Zionist Organization of America that the film had been canceled altogether.
            In June, The Electronic Intifada learned that a high level source in Doha had said the film’s indefinite delay was due to “national security” concerns of the Qatari government.
            Covert action
            As revealed in a clip published by The Electronic Intifada earlier this week, the film shows Julia Reifkind – then an Israeli embassy employee – describing her typical work day as “mainly gathering intel, reporting back to Israel … to report back to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Strategic Affairs.”
            She discusses the Israeli government “giving our support” to front groups “in that behind-the-scenes way.”
            Reifkind also admits to using fake Facebook profiles to infiltrate the circles of Palestine solidarity activists on campus.
            The film also reveals that US-based groups coordinate their efforts directly with the Israeli government, particularly its Ministry of Strategic Affairs.
            Run by a former military intelligence officer, the ministry is in charge of Israel’s global campaign of covert sabotage targeting the BDS movement.
            The film shows footage of the very same ex-military intelligence officer, Sima Vaknin-Gil, claiming to have mapped Palestinian rights activism “globally. Not just the United States, not just campuses, but campuses and intersectionality and labor unions and churches.”
            She promises to use this data for “offense activity” against Palestine activists.
            Jacob Baime, executive director of the Israel on Campus Coalition, claims in the undercover footage that his organization uses “corporate level, enterprise-grade social media intelligence software” to gather lists of Palestine-related student events on campus, “generally within about 30 seconds or less” of them being posted online.
            Baime also admits on hidden camera that his group “coordinates” with the Israeli Ministry of Strategic Affairs.
            Baime states that his researchers “issue early warning alerts to our partners” – including Israeli ministries.
            Baime’s colleague Ian Hersh admits in the film to adding Israel’s “Ministry of Strategic Affairs to our operations and intelligence brief.”
            “Psychological warfare”
            Baime describes how his group has used anonymous websites to target activists.
            “With the anti-Israel people, what’s most effective, what we’ve found at least in the last year, is you do the opposition research, put up some anonymous website, and then put up targeted Facebook ads,” Baime explains in part three of the film.
            “Canary Mission is a good example,” he states. “It’s psychological warfare.”
            The film names, for the first time, convicted tax evader Adam Milstein as the multimillionaire funder and mastermind of Canary Mission – an anonymous smear site targeting student activists.
            The Electronic Intifada revealed this in a clip in August.
            Eric Gallagher, then fundraising director for The Israel Project, is seen in the undercover footage admitting that “Adam Milstein, he’s the guy who funds” Canary Mission.
            Milstein also funds The Israel Project, Gallagher states.
            Gallagher says that when he was working for AIPAC, Washington’s most powerful Israel lobby group, “I was literally emailing back and forth with [Adam Milstein] while he was in jail.”
            Despite not replying to Al Jazeera’s request for comment, Milstein denied that he and his family foundation “are funders of Canary Mission” on the same day The Electronic Intifada published the clip.
            Since then, Josh Nathan-Kazis of The Forward has identified several other groups in the USwho fund Canary Mission.

            Suppressed film
            In March, The Electronic Intifada published the first details of what is in the film.
            We reported that it showed Sima Vaknin-Gil claiming to have leading neoconservative think tank the Foundation for Defense of Democracies working for her ministry.
            The undercover footage shows Vaknin-Gil claiming that “We have FDD. We have others working on” projects including “data gathering, information analysis, working on activist organizations, money trail. This is something that only a country, with its resources, can do the best.”
            As noted in part one of the documentary, the existence of the film and the identity of the undercover reporter became known after footage he had shot for it was used in Al Jazeera’s The Lobby – about Israel’s covert influence campaign in the UK – aired in early 2017.
            Since then, Israel lobbyists have heavily pressured Qatar to prevent the US film from airing.
            “Foreign agent”
            Clayton Swisher, Al Jazeera’s head of investigations, first confirmed in October 2017 that the network had run an undercover reporter in the US Israel lobby at the same time as in the UK.
            Swisher promised the film would be released “very soon,” but it never came out.
            Multiple Israel lobby sources told Israel’s Haaretz newspaper in February that they had received assurances from Qatari leaders late last year that the documentary would not be aired.
            Qatar denied this, but the paper stood by its story.
            Swisher’s op-ed in The Forward was his first public comment on the matter since he had announced the documentary.
            In it, he refutes Israel lobby allegations about the film and expresses frustration that Al Jazeera had not aired it, apparently due to outside pressure.
            Several pro-Israel lawmakers in Washington have piled on more pressure by pushing the Department of Justice to force Al Jazeera to register as a “foreign agent” under a counterespionage law dating from the 1930s.
            The Israel lobby goes to Doha
            While the film was delayed, a wave of prominent pro-Israel figures visited Qatar at the invitation of its ruler, Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.
            They have included some of the most right-wing and extreme figures among Israel’s defenders in the US, such as Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz and Morton Klein, the head of the Zionist Organization of America.
            Swisher wrote in The Forward that he ran into Dershowitz at a Doha restaurant during one of these visits, and invited the professor to a private viewing of the film.
            “I have no problem with any of the secret filming,” Swisher says Dershowitz told him afterwards. “And I can even see this being broadcast on PBS” – the US public broadcaster.
            Yet it appears that Israel lobby efforts to quash the film were successful – until now.

            And based on WHAT would Iran have right to ask for any favor from Russia?!
            Iran doesn’t do that because they KNOW that they are not allay to Russia !
            They never helped Russia in anything didn’t recognize Abkhazi or Ossetia didn’t retaliate on Turkey shooting down of Russian SU-24 and WHY would they do that they are NOT allays!
            Russia and Iran only have same enemies so they are informal allays of convenience !

            First, the most obvious and obvious: the concept of “Judeo-Christian”, “Judeo-Christianity”, is an invention whose fundamental purpose is to de-Christianize Christianity. The approach between the two worlds, which takes place through a true “Judaization” of Christianity and begins to operate with the advent of modernity, has historically proved to be a mythical tool of neo-conservative and liberal-conservative forces to elevate Israel and the Jewish people in prejudice of Christianity, of Christians in general, of Europeans, etc.
            So the mention of a “Judeo-Christian civilization” must activate our mechanisms for perceiving danger. NR has already issued an important note demystifying this concept. Judeo-Christianity is, for all intents and purposes, anti-Christianity. It is a modern invention. A corruption, a perverse construct, a subversive infiltration of certain parasitic forces.

            The world is completely lunatic and hate boiling up to the skies. Those who hate feel that their base is foul, that it can not supply them any longer and their feet are dangling in the air. Now they want to strangel some culprits’ throats…

            However, I cannot stop caring. I am a woman and mother: I have children, nephews, nieces and teach every day other people’s children of various national backgrounds. I want people to use their brains and start some empathy. I cannot accept that we are all straightly marching towards in the open furnace of desaster. And that is what we are indeed doing. The haters, out of brain, as they want it – the others are pushed forwards by masses and try in vain to cry for reason.

            Despite AIPAC’s efforts to get him un-elected he was re-elected Congress anyhow, unlike the great and fearless American Hero former US Representative Cynthia McKinney, a true American Patriot who tells the truth, the whole truth.
            Representative McKinney refused to sign this AIPAC Loyalty Oath to put Israel first even over America, which of course would be a direct violation of the Oath of Office any Member of Congress takes upon being seated.
            Why is it such a serious matter to get these signers of the AIPAC Loyalty Oath out of Congress? The reason is obvious, without these Traitors who are sellouts to AIPAC and Israel, America could not have been transformed into a virtual province of Israel.

            Very few Americans know of this treasonous betrayal by all but one Member of Congress. This betrayal is a very serious, grievous violation of their Oath of Office and also American espionage laws and it constitutes Treason. Why do we know for certain this signing the AIPAC Loyalty Oath is Treason?
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImFMcbF2MYY
            We know this for certain because Treason is the capital offense of betraying one’s country and aiding or abetting an enemy of one’s own country, people and one’s government. Yes, but isn’t Israel an important ally of America?

This will bring an end to the espionage done against America in America by AIPAC, the ADL, the SPLC and other Israeli-linked foreign espionage fronts.

            The footage reveals how Emergency Committee on Israel Executive Director Noah Pollak and the right-wing Hoover Institution organized an astroturfed a protest aimed at disrupting the 2016 Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) national conference. According to one Hoover Institution campus fellow, “This is the first foot soldier activity that I think we’ve been forced to do.” A Hoover fellow who identified himself as “Marshall,” explained the background of the protest: “It was basically like Noah Pollak coming in and being like, ‘Look, there are these jihadis who basically support suicide bombing, and they’re on a campus and you have to stop them.’” “It’s a chance to shout at Arabs,” another fellow interjected. Marshall, who is African American, divulged his fear that some media outlet might publish “a photo of Deon [another Hoover Institute fellow] and me together, and we’re just like clearly identifiable. They’re like, “Oh, who are these traitors who sold out to the Jewish conspiracy for money?’” He then joked: “I’m like, ‘We did! We cost $50,000 plus benefits.” Later, as the bus neared the SJP event, Marshall aired more doubts about the staged protest: “No, no, no — this is astroturfing… It’s when you set up fake protests.” “It’s not that astroturfing is wrong, it’s just that your astroturf has to be, like, committed,” he lamented. Months before Al Jazeera’s investigative unit went undercover in the Israel lobby, it interviewed me about the way the lobby operates. In the footage presented in this clip, I can be seen explaining that its outfits in Washington have been “manufacturing the image of a grassroots movement by taking corporate money and basically paying people to appear as activists.” The astroturfed protest organized by Israel lobbyist Noah Pollak, seen to the center-right with a sign apparently referring to Russian and Iranian military efforts in Syria A censorship campaign to conceal Israel lobby dirt Pollak’s Emergency Committee for Israel is part of a coalition of right-wing and Israel lobbying organizations that have devoted increasing resources to undermining the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, or BDS. Al Jazeera’s censored “The Lobby” documentary exposes intensive collaboration between these US-based cut-outs, the Israeli military-intelligence apparatus, and pro-Israel oligarchs like Sheldon Adelson and Adam Milstein. For that reason, Israel lobby forces enacted a pressure campaign that appears to have succeeded in suppressing Al Jazeera’s release of “The Lobby.” The campaign consisted of visits by high profile Israel lobbyists Alan Dershowitz and Morton Klein to Doha, as well as threats from Congress to force Al Jazeera to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act if it aired the documentary. Qatar has since donated $250,000 to Klein’s Zionist Organization of America and other hardline Israel lobby outfits. Electronic Intifada reported in June that Qatar decided to nix “The Lobby” over “national security concerns.” According to reporters Asa Winstanley and Ali Abunimah, there were concerns in Qatari governing circles that release of the documentary could even prompt the US to pull its Al Udeid Airbase from the Gulf country at a time when it was under embargo from Saudi Arabia and UAE, both close allies of Israel and the US. Despite the ban, pieces of the documentary have begun to trickle out.

            Part 7
            The film was made by Al Jazeera during 2016 and was completed in October 2017.
            But it was censored after Qatar, the gas-rich Gulf emirate that funds Al Jazeera, came under intense Israel lobby pressure not to air the film.
            Although Al Jazeera’s director-general claimed last month that there were outstanding legal issues with the film, his assertions have been flatly contradicted by his own journalists.
            In March, The Electronic Intifada was the first to report on any of the film’s specific content. We followed this in August by publishing the first extract of the film, and shortly after Max Blumenthal at the Grayzone Project released others.
            Since then, The Electronic Intifada has released three other extracts, and several other journalists have watched the entire film and written about it – including Alain Gresh and Antony Loewenstein.
            Now The Electronic Intifada can reveal for the first time that it has obtained all four parts of the film.
            You can watch the first two parts in the video embeds above and below.
            To get unprecedented access to the Israel lobby’s inner workings, undercover reporter “Tony” posed as a pro-Israel volunteer in Washington.
            The resulting film exposes the efforts of Israel and its lobbyists to spy on, smear and intimidate US citizens who support Palestinian human rights, especially BDS – the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.
            It shows that Israel’s semi-covert black-ops government agency, the Ministry of Strategic Affairs, is operating this effort in collusion with an extensive network of US-based organizations.
            These include the Israel on Campus Coalition, The Israel Project and the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

            Suppressed film
            In March, The Electronic Intifada published the first details of what is in the film.
            We reported that it showed Sima Vaknin-Gil claiming to have leading neoconservative think tank the Foundation for Defense of Democracies working for her ministry.
            The undercover footage shows Vaknin-Gil claiming that “We have FDD. We have others working on” projects including “data gathering, information analysis, working on activist organizations, money trail. This is something that only a country, with its resources, can do the best.”
            As noted in part one of the documentary, the existence of the film and the identity of the undercover reporter became known after footage he had shot for it was used in Al Jazeera’s The Lobby – about Israel’s covert influence campaign in the UK – aired in early 2017.
            Since then, Israel lobbyists have heavily pressured Qatar to prevent the US film from airing.
            “Foreign agent”
            Clayton Swisher, Al Jazeera’s head of investigations, first confirmed in October 2017 that the network had run an undercover reporter in the US Israel lobby at the same time as in the UK.
            Swisher promised the film would be released “very soon,” but it never came out.
            Multiple Israel lobby sources told Israel’s Haaretz newspaper in February that they had received assurances from Qatari leaders late last year that the documentary would not be aired.
            Qatar denied this, but the paper stood by its story.
            Swisher’s op-ed in The Forward was his first public comment on the matter since he had announced the documentary.
            In it, he refutes Israel lobby allegations about the film and expresses frustration that Al Jazeera had not aired it, apparently due to outside pressure.
            Several pro-Israel lawmakers in Washington have piled on more pressure by pushing the Department of Justice to force Al Jazeera to register as a “foreign agent” under a counterespionage law dating from the 1930s.
            The Israel lobby goes to Doha
            While the film was delayed, a wave of prominent pro-Israel figures visited Qatar at the invitation of its ruler, Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.
            They have included some of the most right-wing and extreme figures among Israel’s defenders in the US, such as Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz and Morton Klein, the head of the Zionist Organization of America.
            Swisher wrote in The Forward that he ran into Dershowitz at a Doha restaurant during one of these visits, and invited the professor to a private viewing of the film.
            “I have no problem with any of the secret filming,” Swisher says Dershowitz told him afterwards. “And I can even see this being broadcast on PBS” – the US public broadcaster.
            Yet it appears that Israel lobby efforts to quash the film were successful – until now.

        “What private Jihad? What attack has Assad, Hezbollah & Iran launched at Israel preemptively?”
        ———————–
        I have WRITTEN IRAN preparing Jihad destruction of Israel not “Assad, Hezbollah & Iran” are you having reading problems?!!?
        Syria, Hezbollah are minor players and are just assisting in that game
        So you probably think they have been storing candy bars in those attacked objects?
        WHY Iranians wouldn’t store SHORT range missiles and send them to Hezbollah too, when it is 1000 times cheaper to hit Israel from SHORT distance with few thousands short range missiles than with 100 LONG range ballistic missiles from Iran?!!?
        If I was Iranian leader I know I would do the SAME !
        I would do exactly the same!
        So all those dead Iranian “advisers” in last attack were NEAR Damascus airport while Syrian war ‘(where they should be) is VERY far away from that place…what coincidence!
        And YES Iran has PRIVATE Jihad on Israel – commander of Iranian air forces have declared few days ago something on TOTAL destruction of Israel (again) !
        Read the news!

        “that’s also Iran & Hezbollah’s only objective too”
        —-

        No shit and you expect me to believe such bull?
        I can’t do that sorry…..that would be insult to my intelligence.
        Iranian and Hezbollah’s interests are not identical to Syrian interests.
        They want more than removing SUNNI terrorist


        After all, they were invited into Syria by the legitimate President of Syria
        —-
        Is there echo on the Internet…you are repeating my own words?!?
        In different context though..
        Russia was not INVITED but ASKED FOR HELP to liberate Syria from TERRORIST ONLY !
        Not to start the war against Turkey
        Not to start the war against Israel
        Not to start the war against US
        Not to start the war against NATO or anti Assad Arabs!
        They were asked to HELP to liberate Syria from TERRORIST ONLY !

        And why?
        Because great super powers Iran and Hezbollah couldn’t do it !
        They couldn’t help Syria enough to get positive result !
        And now when Russia have turned tide of war they COMPLAIN that Russia doesn’t baby sit them enough in their SHODDY revenge Jihad on Israel !

        I just hope that Russia will stay like that… indifferent on their private wars

          To mention Zionism and Israel, yet somehow exclude the beyond-crucial role that Jews (aka Fake Semites, as Ashkenazis have not one drop of Semetic blood in them) have played in the creation and maintenance of both, to overlook the over-representation of Ashkenazi Jews in all spheres of life in the Anglo/Western world from Banking to Geopolitics, is most ludicrous and fallacious assumption anyone could ever make, period.
          To separate Judaism from Zionism and pretend like they’re completely apart from each other when one (Zionism) would literally not exist at all if it weren’t for the other is as preposterous as it gets.
          Fact of the matter is, there is everything Jewish about Zionism.

      Iran is comrade in arms against the terrorists …

      Assad could have been an ally of western powers .. what do you think Russia’s position both in the ME and its oil exports to EU countries would be like?

        Well, I have just read that and agree with you both. I have finished and in my mind, their is nothing about this article except confused chatter and a deep feeling of being insulted and annoyed.

        The authors summation is OK, but already known to me for 40 years.

      WOW how “deep” thoughts.
      So they have disappointed you personally?!
      Yeah that is great “pity” !
      That must be huge minus for them and in their lives !
      They will lose much sleep over that I am sure!

      But you just might forgive them one day because you are so nice !

    “And contrary to the fantasies of various Jew-haters, this has absolutely nothing to do with “the Jews” or being Jewish, and everything to do with an exceptionally toxic interpretation of the Old Testament by Pharisaic rabbis who developed a God- and man-hating religion in response to the galut (the exile from Palestine of those Jews who rejected Christ) and to the tremendous success of Christianity. As for modern Zionism, it is nothing more than a transposition of the very same racist assumptions and implications of Pharisaic Judaism to a materialistic milieu, that’s all.”

    This wouldn’t be my interpretation of Judaism. The Talmud existed long before Christ and was contradicting and subverting old testament teachings from it’s inception. Which according to Jew sources the Talmud existed as anti scripture from the inception of scripture itself. The old testament is full of stories about the Jew’s demon worshiping and rejection of scripture. This doesn’t mean that every Jew embraced evil then, or that every Jew does today. That’s not the issue. The issue is Judaism, not cafeteria Jews, like cafeteria Catholics who pick and choose what they want to believe or practice.

    Judaism is an evil pedophile mass rape cult that rapes 1,000 children worldwide every week with their depraved blood sucking oral suction circumcision ritual, infects some of them with venereal disease in the process, brain damages and murders them. It needs to be outlawed and Palestine needs to be dejudified, unified and admitted to the UN to replace Israel so that Israel, Jews and Judaism go extinct. To create a much better Jew free world for humanity.

      “the Oral Torah or Oral Law (Hebrew: תורה שבעל פה‬, Torah she-be-`al peh, lit. “Torah that is on the mouth”) represents those laws, statutes, and legal interpretations that were not recorded in the Five Books of Moses, the “Written Torah” (Hebrew: תורה שבכתב‬, Torah she-bi-khtav, lit. “Torah that is in writing”), but nonetheless are regarded by Orthodox Jews as prescriptive and co-given. …

      According to Jewish tradition, the Oral Torah was passed down orally in an unbroken chain from generation to generation until its contents were finally committed to writing following the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE, when Jewish civilization was faced with an existential threat. …

      The major repositories of the Oral Torah are the Mishnah, compiled between 200–220 CE by Rabbi Yehudah haNasi, and the Gemara, a series of running commentaries and debates concerning the Mishnah, which together are the Talmud”

        The problem is that the oral “traditions” that made their way into the Talmud are often at odds with the written Torah. Jesus pointed out this fact to them 2000 years ago. They were blind then and will remain blind until he returns and opens their eyes.

    “And yet, after the latest Israeli air strikes in Syria (which also follow a pattern I predicted here) I am, again, getting panicked emails about Putin/Russia “betrayed/gave up” Syria or how the S-300s/Pantsirs are “not working”, Putin is a “Zionist agent”, etc. Sigh, rolleyes…

    [Sidebar: for one thing, that kind of nonsense shows an amazing level of illiteracy in military affairs. Why? Because all these Israeli attacks on (alleged) pro-Iranian or even Iranian positions were small, even if annoying, pinpricks, especially when compared to the very real losses suffered by Iranian and pro-Iranian forces in combat (real combat, not the pretend-combat for Hollywood the Israelis and their US vassals have mostly performed in the past decades). Just because each such pinprick results in hours of Israeli (and pro-Israeli) chest-thumping does not mean that it was in any way effective in deterring Iran or its allies. The truth is that Iran and its allies are all over Syria (they mostly came after the AngloZionist decided to trigger a revolution against Assad – bravo AngloZionist geniuses!!) and that they ain’t leaving].

    In Russian this type of behavior, which is really a political manipulation tactic, is called “перевести стрелки” or, roughly, “change focus”, or simply “obfuscate” (again, for a detailed discussion of this, please see my article “Why is Putin “allowing” Israel to bomb Syria“).”

    • RichardD

      The point that is material here is that things changed after the IL-20 downing and the deaths of 15 Russian airmen. Prior to that Syria didn’t have the SADF upgrades in place to deter IAF airstrikes with the S-300/400s, EW &ECM capabilities that they now have. In theory their fleet of modernized Mig-29s and possibly according to some reports Mig-31s were capable of engaging IAF fighters. But that would have been a losing war of attrition because the IAF is much larger and better funded. And it also risked escalation that the SAA wasn’t in a position to manage.

      That changed with the post IL-20 shoot down SADF upgrades. The SADF is now, at least on paper, vastly superior to comparable IDF air defense capabilities. This evens up the playing field considerably. Assuming that the S-300/400, EW & ECM capabilities work to design specification against modern NATO equipment.

      Assuming, and at this stage it’s a big assumption because the S-300/400s aren’t combat proven, that they do work to specification and are capable of destroying the IAF fleet of NATO fighters in the air and on the ground and that the Jews have no defense against this short of nukes or direct NATO military intervention. Then the only thing preventing the SADF from taking down Jew war crime fighters, is escalation management.

      The last IAF, IDF? attacks purportedly included dozens of cruise missiles, more than would normally be launched by air strikes alone. If that’s the case, then the nature of the Jew attacks is changing, and they’re cutting back on the use of their air force and are transitioning to their ground and possibly naval forces as well. Which changes the dynamic of escalation management. And requires taking out not only aerial platforms like fighters, and possibly their support bases, but surface platforms and possibly their support bases as well. In theory the SADF S-300/400s are capable of doing all of that, because they can hit ground targets as well as air targets without interdiction because their speed, depending on the missiles used, is beyond what the Jew’s anti missile systems are capable of interdicting.

  • Tommy Jensen

    Its actually quite simple.

    Russia delayed signed pre-paid contracts for supply of S-300 to Syria and Iran in 9 years, while Russia jumped and danced to sell S-400 to Turkey, Saudi, Qatar, India and China under the best conditions.

    All because Kremlin wanted to please Israel and our “equal partners”, at the cost of thousands SAA lives, hundreds of Russians and Iranians and Hezbollah lives, who were doing the hard job against the thugs on the ground in Syria.

    Stop the hypocrisy and admit the facts. Neither US nor Israel keep any deal anyway, so it was waste of lives, money and time.

    • RichardD

      There was a big difference in escalation management when Syria controlled 10% of it’s land in 2015 and when it controls 60% of it’s land and the US is withdrawing in 2019. In 2015 up to clearing the Damascus area and Golan border last year. The SAA wasn’t in a position to manage escalation by the Jews. It’s uncertain if they can now. But for most of the war up until recently. Even if the SADF had S-300s, they wouldn’t have used them outside of Syrian airspace. And there was no need to use them inside of Syrian airspace because the IAF had already been backed out of Syrian airspace without S-300s being deployed.

      The SADF has had the ability to target IAF fighters for the entire war with it’s Mig-29s and S-200s. And prior to clearing the Damascus area and Golan the reports of targeting IAF fighters outside of Syrian airspace were very limited at best. Because the SAA wasn’t in the position to manage escalation contingencies.

        Well said . .

        All right. You sign a contract and buy a car (S300) from a Supplier because you need it.

        Your Supplier (Russia) fool around in 9 years, telling you that you are not prepared, that you need something else than you requested, that you are too busy and cannot use the car in the prevailing situation.
        After 9 years your supplier tells you, you need a training period but you are too stupid to understand to drive the car, while he will drive it for you.

        In the same period of 9 years your supplier has visited all your competitors (Saudi, Qatar, Turkey) and secured they can have a better car (S400) than the one you requested and still not have got.

        On top of it, your Supplier refuse to cancel the contract and return your pre-payment so you can buy elsewhere (Iran). When another Supplier (Iran) try to deliver the car you needed, your Supplier get one of your competitors (Israel) to destroy the car delivery you need.

        If you and Saker and co cannot see this is ugly bugly, you guys are full of bs.

        • RichardD

          That’s a stupid analogy that ignores the most basic facts. Like Syria wouldn’t have used them even if they had them. And if they did, it would invite escalation that they were unprepared to handle. Plus they got these ones for free, they’re the latest and best models, they got a lot of them, and they’re part of an extensively upgraded air defense system second in the region to only Russia itself.

  • Chris Saunders

    Well written article by The Saker. It has been said by a few that one of the main reasons the JWO hates Russia so much is because of its Orthodox Christian heritage. They even intimated in their playbook (Protocols) that Christianity was possibly the biggest threat to their nefarious global agenda. They very skilfully managed to persuade the evangelicals that they were still God’s very own chosen race and the churches that were too smart to fall for that trick, they managed to destroy either their reputations, or their pocket books . .

    Materialism is debasing. God is good and everywhere and materialism is idol worship. As mankind becomes addicted to consumerism and the medium of the trade is money and money is made through labor at tasks many steps removed from fundamental connection to Earth (removed from Eden), man becomes alienated, from others, from self and from God.

    Solzhenitsyn got it right.

    Unfortunately, the return may not be available through revival but may have to rise from the ashes.

    Russia has played its interest well. An enunciated ethic of standing with the wretched of the earth serves to secure a moral standard around which to rally.

    But Saker you go too far in declaring that the Mullahs hold a moral high ground Russia should emulate. You know this to be a falsehood. While you may seek to shore up the mirage of Iranian Turkish Russian cooperation, the fundamental interests will prevail. Turkey isn’t leaving Syria. It’s expanding its holdings. Iran seeks hegemony amongst the Islamic ME players which requires the land bridge through Syria to Hezbollah Lebanon. Russia already has what it wants: airbase and naval base in the Levant.

    Russia has every strategic reason to maintain at least tacit support of Israel. It will leave Israel a free hand in dealing with Iranian ambitions adverse to the existence of Israel. The human capital of Israel and its huge Russian population make Israel and Russia permanent bed fellows.
