Israel showed the world that it’s been able to cultivate a lot more indirect international support for its claim to Jerusalem as its capital than might have initially been expected.
As conventional wisdom goes, “desperate people do desperate things”, and this is more apt than ever when it comes to Israel after it’s convinced itself that last weekend’s democratic elections in Lebanon were hijacked by an Iranian “terrorist” proxy, as it’s difficult to think of why else it would imply that civilians might be punished for voting an anti-Israeli political party into power.
A turning point might therefore have finally been reached after Victory Day 2018 sobered up the minds of many in the Alt-Media Community and revealed to them that the dogma that some outlets and figures had indoctrinated them with for years about Russia and Israel turned out to be a complete lie.
Here’s what President Putin really thinks about Israel in his own words, which is sure to surprise a lot of people and hopefully broaden the reader’s understanding of the complex “balancing” strategy that Russia envisions itself playing in the world.
Russia’s de-escalatory role will therefore be pivotal in determining the future of the proxy war between the West and Iran over Syria, but Moscow might ultimately have to “lean on” Damascus and “convince” it to make some “compromises” on Iran and Hezbollah’s post-Daesh military presence in the country.
There is no way that Russia’s expanded military-energy presence in Lebanon is against Israel’s interests, but is actually to its regional advantage in the sense that it seeks to replace Saudi Arabia’s recently declining role in the country and therefore “counterbalance” Iranian influence.
The country’s supposedly “controversial” draft legislation is designed to protect the Polish Nation from defamation through the weaponized inference that so-called “Polish death camps” whitewash Nazi atrocities and revise history in order to solely blame Poles.
Instead of asking why there aren’t thousands of Tamimis, people are satisfied that there was at least one who was brave enough to slap an Israeli soldier on camera.

Turkey, Iran, Indonesia and Pakistan, Islamic nations with formidable militaries and a collective population of over 600 million strongly voice their opposition designating Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Modi and Netanyahu are set to elevate India-Israel relationship to the level of a ‘strategic alliance’- which ought to benefit both countries.
The foregoing discussions of Kurdistan and of Palestine owe a great deal (at least in spirit, if not to their precise details) to Hayek, rather than to any more Quixotian thinker.
