On Wednesday, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Russian president Vladimir Putin in Russian occupied Muslim city of Sochi. This is Netanyahu sixth meeting with Putin in Russia and three outside Russia during the last two years. Like the previous meetings, Netanyahu’s discussions circled around Iran, Iran, Iran.
Netanyahu who is known for irking some of world’s leaders, is under immense pressure as result of defeat of Israel’s terrorist allies in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon at the hands of Syrian army supported by Iran, Hizbullah, Russia and Iraqi Shi’ite militia.
“Iran is already well on its way to controlling Iraq, Yemen and to a large extent is already in practice in control of Lebanon,” Netanyahu told Putin.
Netanyahu who was hoping for a sympathetic response from Putin, was left disappointed as Putin refused to address his claims.
But later in the day, Russian Ambassador to the UN Vasily Nebenzya dismissed the Israeli prime minister’s claims.
“We know Israel’s position on Iran, but we believe that Iran plays a very constructive role in Syria. We have been working closely with Iran to bring an end to the conflict in Syria as soon as possible,” he said.
It seems, Israeli Mossad chief Yossi Cohen and Meir Ben-Shabbat, newly appointed head of the National Security Council who accompanied Netanyahu, failed to convince Russian president of Netanyahu’s lies about Iran.
Before visiting Russia, both Zionist dudes held a close-door meeting with Trump’s national security adviser Gen. H.R. McMaster in Washington. McMaster is now accused of being pro-Iran by the Jewish Lobby over his firing of anti-Iran Ezra Cohen-Watnick, former senior director for intelligence at the White House.
On August 23, Israeli journalist Tzippe Barrow admitted that Israeli delegation was disappointed with Russian refusal to pressure Iran into withdrawing its troops from Syria rather than expanding its military footprint there.
The Zionist regime is critical of Iran-Russia-Turkey efforts to end the ISIS terror in Syria and Iraq – fearing it would ultimately cement Iran’s position as a powerful regional player and benefit Islamic resistance movements such as Lebanon’s Hizbullah and Hamas in Gaza.
“Netanyahu’s watchers may have a sense of deja vu here, as this rhetoric sounds so similar to the one used by him in the years and months prior to the Iran nuclear deal. The wolf cry syndrome may be in place here, and that may not serve Netanyahu well with a tough guy like Putin. Netanyahu indicates Israel’s readiness to go it alone against Iranian actual take over of South Syria, but the question is who believes it, and the answer may be not the one that Netanyahu wants to hear. There is no American readiness to support Israel in such a case, and Putin surely would not like to see any one risking his vested interests in Syria, after all his investment there. He will be nice to Netanyahu, he will promise to take note of Israel’s worries, and on top of all that, he will try to gain time. He needs more time to consolidate his gains in Syria, and so will say to the Israeli leader whatever has to be said, which will serve his agenda,” whined Israeli professor Josef Olmert at HuffPost on August 23, 2017.
