Perhaps I have been unclear. I posted this article to illustrate a “perfect storm”.

I did attempt to post the entire article in sections. This was removed by the moderator. I assume it was a copyright issue, but have not checked.

Please read this excerpt for support of my point:

“. . And so it came to be that the lawlessness of the FSU states combined with the Israeli need to give refuge to ex-Soviet Jewry without first inquiring who was a genuine repatriate and who wasn’t to make Israel the perfect hub for FSU and specifically Russian and Ukrainian criminal and espionage activities.

Today, three decades after the initial big bang, the acrid heartburn of those events is finally making itself felt. The West has stopped basking in the glow of its Cold War victory and is beginning to view Russia again as its primary rival.

Reckless American adventurism in the Middle East has thrown the region into turmoil and allowed Russia a foothold in it, making the Russian threat to Western interests that much more severe.”

I do not believe the author or myself to denigrate Jews: I follow Genesis 12:3 “ And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

After having re-read the article, I do not see anti-semitism by the author. I see analysis of a political situation.

Is an error in perception here by either of us a possibility?

If the point is that a third of Israel’s population being of Soviet origin creates an espionage risk it is well-founded.
It is a huge risk for both sides.
As sure existential security risks I think just the opposite is the case.
With every over Israel’s citizen having multiple relatives in Russia and vice versa I think the risk of war is actually lower.
