Skip to comments.Russia, feeling its oats, turns on Israel: At the U.N., which focused on Israel regardless of events in Ukraine, Russia went on the attack

The United Nations is a completely corrupt organization that gives cover to tyrants and pedophiles, and that has made destroying Israel its primary focus. On Wednesday, even as Russian troops were massed on Ukraine's border, the U.N. Security Council found time to hold a debate on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Just to show how farcical the United Nations is, despite Russia being poised to attack Ukraine, the U.N. Security Council nevertheless followed its usual leadership rotation, making Vladimir Putin the Security Council chairman. Thus, Russia helmed the meeting regarding the U.N.'s obsession: Israel.
The meeting occurred just a few hours after Israel announced its support for Ukraine. Predictably, Dmitry Polyanskiy, the deputy ambassador to the U.N., announced that "Russia doesn't recognize Israel's sovereignty over Golan Heights that are part of #Syria."
Of course, since 1967, when Russia determined that the Arabs were better Cold War allies than the tiny socialist nation it once supported, Russia has had Syria's back. Although Israel annexed the Golan Heights in 1981, the Israel-hating nations around the world, including the Soviet Union and the Russians, have refused to recognize it.

In 1980, I spent a couple of days at a Moshav (a cooperative community of farmers, unlike a kibbutz, which is a true collective), in the shadow of the Golan Heights. Bombs fell before I arrived there and after I left. I was too young and stupid to realize that I was in danger. It was only later that I understood how vulnerable I was and, by extension, how vulnerable every Israeli was in the shadow of the Golan.

So what? The USA has turned on Israel too.
U.S. out of the corrupt and dangerous U.N. U.N. out of the U.S.
Are there or are there not Russian forces still in Syria? They should bee worried. I wouldn’t mess with Israel.
The Israeli heartland is extremely vulnerable if the Golan Heights were in the possession of a technologically sophisticated, hostile opponent. Abba Eban used to state in almost every speech that Israel must have “geographically defensible borders”. Israel’s leaders know this very well and will never voluntarily cede Golan. They also realize in this technologically sophisticated era defense is increasingly difficult regardless of borders.
As regards to Russia, the enormity of the disaster and consequences that Putin’s monumentally stupid invasion of Ukraine has left Russian leaders themselves bewildered and stressed. They are lashing out at Israel exercising their always present and sometimes latent age old Russian anti-Semitism to vent their rage.
Yes, the UN dislikes Israel
Good, keep spreading yourself thinner, Pooty Poot.
Israel didn’t foolish give away their Sampson option.
Biblical prophesy predicts that Russia will move on Israel along with other regional powers.
RE: As regards to Russia, the enormity of the disaster and consequences that Putin’s monumentally stupid invasion of Ukraine has left Russian leaders themselves bewildered and stressed.
I think Putin is calculating. He wants Ukraine because of what he CAN CONTROL and he reckons a few tens of thousands deaths are worth the risk.
1st in Europe in proven recoverable reserves of uranium ores;
2nd place in Europe and 10th place in the world in terms of titanium ore reserves;
2nd place in the world in terms of explored reserves of manganese ores (2.3 billion tons, or 12% of the world’s reserves);
2nd largest iron ore reserves in the world (30 billion tons);
2nd place in Europe in terms of mercury ore reserves;
3rd place in Europe (13th place in the world) in shale gas reserves (22 trillion cubic meters)
4th in the world by the total value of natural resources;
7th place in the world in coal reserves (33.9 billion tons)
Ukraine is an important agricultural country:
1st in Europe in terms of arable land area;
3rd place in the world by the area of black soil (25% of world’s volume);
1st place in the world in exports of sunflower and sunflower oil;
2nd place in the world in barley production and 4th place in barley exports;
3rd largest producer and 4th largest exporter of corn in the world;
4th largest producer of potatoes in the world;
5th largest rye producer in the world;
5th place in the world in bee production (75,000 tons);
8th place in the world in wheat exports;
9th place in the world in the production of chicken eggs;
16th place in the world in cheese exports.
Ukraine can meet the food needs of 600 million people.
Ukraine is an important industrialized country:
1st in Europe in ammonia production;
Europe’s 2nd’s and the world’s 4th largest natural gas pipeline system;
3rd largest in Europe and 8th largest in the world in terms of installed capacity of nuclear power plants;
3rd place in Europe and 11th in the world in terms of rail network length (21,700 km);
3rd place in the world (after the U.S. and France) in production of locators and locating equipment;
3rd largest iron exporter in the world
4th largest exporter of turbines for nuclear power plants in the world;
4th world’s largest manufacturer of rocket launchers;
4th place in the world in clay exports
4th place in the world in titanium exports
8th place in the world in exports of ores and concentrates;
9th place in the world in exports of defense industry products;
10th largest steel producer in the world (32.4 million tons).
THAT is what Putin wants — CONTROL of these resources.
[[Israel’s leaders know this very well and will never voluntarily cede Golan]]
I wonder though if they will if they are offered 7 years peace? In the end times, they inexplicably accept a “piece deal” with someone, a group, who promises to protect them. Unbelievably, israel accept (even knowing what the Bible says about the end times)
In the end times, God will miraculously protect them, though times will still be awful.
Correct. Biden killed the very pipeline that would have eased Europe's dependence on russia.
Israel just needs to focus on its economy due to Covid. Militarily, for the time being nothing is going to happen however I would check any cargo ships docking in Egypt or any other Arab states which can funnel weapons to the Palis.
Yes, there are permanent Russian forces in Syria, propping up Assad, and securing ports on the Mediterranean.
Israel has many business partnerships with Russia, but Russia considers Syria a much closer military ally, and would side with them if/when forced to choose.
Golan Heights is the most likely flash point between the two.
My understandings of a complex area.
It sounds like typical tit-for-tat pissing match.
It looks like Russia's guy is drawing an analogy, of their occupation of Ukraine to Israel's of the Golan. The latter is a strategic necessity.
And now it gets REALLY interesting…
“Biblical prophesy predicts that Russia will move on Israel along with other regional powers.“
Check out the Ukraine on a map. Look directly south..
Oh yeah.. and there’s OIL to be had there too!..
Where does it predict that?
Magog will meet the G_d of Israel and be utterly destroyed. Gog is servant of antichrist.
