1. pure exaggeration

putin has been ok for israe. Bear in mind that he has sold all kinds of weapons to iran, syria and indirectly hezbollah. What russia is hitting in syria is not exactly clear but he is certainly more decisive than obama. He also has to worry about isis/ related coming back to russia. Bibi has very little brawn, he is quite weak and hanegbi is his stooge and water carrier as ramon was olmert's. Don't exaggerate yaalon's as you say slip. but he called a spade a spade which is OK.
2. In politics,no friends,only interests

3. Israel USA alliance is central
Avi L.   (12.12.15)
Israel USA alliance is central to both of us. Russia isn't Israel's friend, Putin is nobody's friend. USSR/Russia constant strategic goal has been to separate the US from its allies. The muslim world has the same strategic goal. Not being buddy buddy with Putin's Russia doesn't mean to put it on the same level as Iran or ISIS, please let's not use this kind of rethorics, please ...
4. Russia ALWAYS armed Israels mortal enemies,

is this enough ?!
5. at the moment Russia is the savior......
Calabi ,   Sydney Aust   (12.14.15)
Russia is doing right and is the savior for the defenseless Christian, Yasidi and non muslim that do not have any part of the politics against anyone. Like the Israeli who just wanted to live peacefully in her fatherland of Abraham. The dynamics could change very quickly..............1948 UN Russia Eastern block vote Israel in as an independent nation. Ironically in 1953 Russia fall in love with halal and against Israel. S300 and S400 is for Iran to against Saudi Mecca and Turkey or against Israel? Putin must be very very careful to support Iran and also to defend Israel at the same time. Is very dangerous and may be no room for 1953 and Russia may make room for 1967 and 1973 in one go! Let see and hope Putin read this! God bless Israel & Jerusalem
6. Russia is not a friend
C   (12.14.15)
at most, russia is a temporary ally. however, putin is unpredictable. israel has another difficult year before there is a new american president--preferably not h. clinton.
