Russia: Neutral Re Israel Vs Hamas. That’s Good. DONT Read U.S. Press About Russia
I am reading all over the net how Russia is going to ‘get involved’ in the Israel versus Hamas terrorist issue. You have to remember who our press is influenced by: Communists, Marxists, Leninists, Stalinists, Islamic Jihadists, “BLM”, etc. Our “Press” is going even so far as claiming Russia will enter a war against Israel. Nothing of the sort is being said from the Moscow press.
Putin last spoke with Netanyahu on May 7, which was before the conflict escalated in Gaza, but after several weeks of clashes in East Jerusalem. During their conversation, Putin did not even refer to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Instead, he sought common ground on how the two countries view World War II. He also discussed bilateral trade and economic relations and the situation in Syria.
A week later:
“I would like to ask our colleagues to speak about the situation in the Middle East”, he said, “namely, about the aggravation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which is taking place in close proximity to our borders and directly concerns our security interests. ” Opinion in the Editorial: Clearly, Moscow does not want to have to choose between its two allies in the region.
Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov:
Said that Putin would speak with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “if necessary”.
Opinion in the Editorial: Russia takes an emphatically neutral position on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, while insisting on addressing the root causes of the conflict. In other words, as worthwhile and necessary as a cease-fire is, what would come next? Another escalation of hostilities? Russia also advocates direct negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis.
