Putin tells Netanyahu, "Russia would not tolerate further Israeli attacks on Damascus and would respond"

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, while in Shanghai, was given a sharp dressing-down by Russian President Vladimir Putin, a warning that Russia would not tolerate further Israeli attacks on Damascus and would respond.

Putin did not say how, but he did announce he had ordered the acceleration of highly advanced Russian weapons supplies to Syria.

Israeli Debkafile's military sources disclosed that the Russian leader was referring to S-300 anti-air systems and the nuclear-capable 9K720 Iskander (NATO named SS-26 Stone) surface missiles, which are precise enough to hit a target within a 5-7 meter radius at a distance of 280 kilometers.

It really is time to stop thinking that

one side is versing the other.
Geopolitics is all about Good Cop verses Bad Cop.
The reality is that Israel, the European Union, The USA, Russia, and anyone else you care to name are all working towards the same end.
Division is the way to conquer. Don't be fooled.



I doubt this story is true...

There's not much, if any, corroboration available from reliable sources. Also, it seems a little strange that Putin would make a phone call to Netanyahu in China. I would like to believe it, because such a warning from Russia is long overdue. But I have serious doubts.

Debkafile's sources

Are for the most part from Israel, Lebanon and Egypt.

You'd be more likely to find corroboration for this story in an Israeli daily such as Haaretz or the JP.

I'm with you. I looked for this story in RT News and I could not find it - weird.

Russia: BUSTED Pending Sale of Missles to Syria


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Israel warned the United States in recent days that Russia plans to sell advanced ground-to-air missile systems to Syria despite Western pressure on Moscow to hold off on such a move, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.

The newspaper said U.S. officials had confirmed they were analyzing the Israeli reports but would not comment on whether they believed the sale of S-300 missile batteries was near.

No comment was immediately available from officials at the Pentagon or U.S. State Department.

The government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has been seeking to purchase the advanced S-300 missile batteries, which can intercept both manned aircraft and guided missiles, from Moscow for many years.

I say good. Why shouldn't

I say good. Why shouldn't Syria be able to defend themselves?

Apparently Syria can't

And isn't that the BIG difference here, Israel CAN.

I hope we don't entangle ourselves any further.

What Israel does it up to Israel, and that is how I support Israel as a friend, unlike most who want to be her dictator.

United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act 2012

Granger, the only reason "Israel CAN" is because it has the full backing of the U.S. "What Israel does is up to Israel" but has grave consequences for the US in the form of billions of U.S.taxpayer dollars and blowback due to U.S. supporting their actions.

United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act 2012

HR4133 “is another piece of one-sided and counter-productive foreign policy legislation.”

“This bill's real intent seems to be more saber-rattling against Iran and Syria,” “and it undermines US diplomatic efforts by making clear that the US is not an honest broker seeking peace for the Middle East.”

“The bill calls for the United States to significantly increase our provision of sophisticated weaponry to Israel, and states that it is to be US policy to ‘help Israel preserve its qualitative military edge’ in the region,”

“While I absolutely believe that Israel – and any other nation – should be free to determine for itself what is necessary for its national security, I do not believe that those decisions should be underwritten by US taxpayers and backed up by the US military.”

“This bill states that it is the policy of the United States to ‘reaffirm the enduring commitment of the United States to the security of the State of Israel as a Jewish state,’”

>>> Especially note the following statement:

“However, according to our Constitution the policy of the United States government should be to protect the security of the United States, not to guarantee the religious, ethnic, or cultural composition of a foreign country. In fact, our own Constitution prohibits the establishment of any particular religion in the US.”

“This bill will not help the United States, it will not help Israel, and it will not help the Middle East,”

“It will implicitly authorize much more US interventionism in the region at a time when we cannot afford the foreign commitments we already have. It more likely will lead to war against Syria, Iran, or both.”

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

The USA NWO needs Israel

That is why we have these agreements. Israel produces rocket scientists and we produce welfare reciptients.

Israel is very much like the USA, SECULAR NWO central banking leaders representing millions who do not agree at all.

I am not here saying I support the actions of the USA when it comes to Israel.. I completely agree with Ron Paul.. we should not be entangled.. it is our own weakness..

But blaming Israeli or Americans for their leaders (knowing we have stolen elections) would be incorrect.

egapele's picture

Because with help from the Russians,

vis a vis China, that would mean World War Three.

Bad for us, correct?

As an aside, North Korea is the only thing separating the United States from invading China.

US invading China? We can't

US invading China? We can't even take over Iraq and Afghanistan and you think we want to invade China? We do not have the money to do it. And just exactly how is North Korea stopping the US? It is not bad for us as long as we mind our own business.

Since when did money matter?

And "as long as we mind our own business" ... have you read headlines lately?

Try having a gay pride parade

Try having a gay pride parade in Russia. Good luck.

Try having a gay pride parade in Israel, no problem.

Many of us here say, "I may not agree with your speech but I will fight and die to protect it."

I'm gay. Do people have the right to picket the funerals of gay service members? Absolutely. Everyone has the right to act like an ignorant slob in America, and that's a good thing not a bad thing.

There is a FINE LINE that separates the West from the East. Why do so many famous musicians reject playing in Russia or China? Why did the Chinese government tell the Rolling Stones they were not allowed to play, "Brown Sugar," live?

Why is Putin still in power? 2 term limits don't exist in Russia, or China.

"RT, also known as Russia Today, is an international multilingual Russian-based television network. It is registered as an autonomous non-profit organization funded by the federal budget of Russia through the Federal Agency on Press and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation."


I stand with Rand. I stand with the WEST.

Russia's not good. China's not good.

Stalin and Mao make the Uncle Sam look like a choir boy.

Israel is literally the Western Wall that divides us from them.

Israel was established by the West after WW2 for 2 very good reasons...Russia and China.

They think much differently than we do. "My nightly jam session," would most definitely not exist today if Russia and China had their way. Art, music, speech, critical thinking, and constructive criticism of the government would not exist. Hollywood wouldn't exist. The Daily Paul wouldn't exist. Freedom wouldn't exist.

Together we stand, or divided we will fall, "like ripe fruit."

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Evidently you've never been to Israel zooamerica

You may notice women are forced to ride on the back of the bus, and are forced to clothe 'appropriately', as in appropriately for the right wing religious extremists.

The Russians have the Chechnya problem, the Israelis have the Palestinian problem.

A lot of the Israeli politicos are actually only recently come to Israel from..........Russia! Including Avigdor Lieberman - a far better leader than that idiot Netanyahu they have in there now.

The Israeli government(Likud) also has media mouthpiece funded by Newt Gingrich's old pal.........Shel Adelson!

Many famous musicians reject playing in Israel as well.

Your argument makes no sense.

who cares what type of parade

who cares what type of parade you can have in either of those countries. Someones perversion is much less important when it comes to people being killed. gees... gay pride parade... I won't even say it.

You are on the oppressing and anti-liberty team. Do not play the victim card. This is not civil rights issue - ask TMOT or Alan Keyes or any decent black pastor.

If you want to read the mainstream propaganda you can go to CNN. GEEZ I really think that the sarin gas being used in Siria is a more important issue than your victim status.

This gay man does not think a

This gay man does not think a gay rights parade is so important that we must do Israel's bidding in our foreign policy. Aren't you tired of fighting wars for Israel? And stop pinkwashing apartheid Israel. Sure gays are treated well there, but Palestinians still aren't. Occupied and colonized since 1967 = outrageous!

There are no GOOD or BAD laws.

Laws are either JUST or UNJUST.

For or against whom? Individuals, and their rights.

Laws or governments do NOT grant rights. We are born with rights, very few of them, but very powerful: life, property, free will and speech, self defense.

I don't have the "right" to be heterosexual. No more than others have the "right" to be gay.

It is only WHO we are. Deny that, and it's injustice, plunder, slavery, you name it.

Governments cannot be "better" than others.

Government is FORCE. Pure force the people tolerate to have the law with force, too.

What is the History lesson?

Big government INVARIABLY LEADS to the Law Perverted.

The UNJUST law.

When Law ceases to be about justice and seeks for something else, behind the veil.

When Law becomes A TOOL for force against individuals or minorities.

The Law ought to be JUSTICE. Exclusively justice. NOTHING else.

Not planning. Not social. Not welfare. Not morality. Not education. No ... Nothing.

Yes, as shocking as it sounds : we are all "immoral", somehow, to someone else's morality.

And so what? As long as the only legitimate defining authority for morality is... yourself, in and for your family.

The only morality of the just laws is found in protecting the rights enumerated above. And only those.

Beyond that, man IS BUT A REED, feeble, imperfect, but man is a THINKING reed : we can talk to each other, understand each other, forgive, etc.

Our grandeur is in striving to think WELL, with Justice.

Thank you, Pascal. Thank you, Bastiat. Thank you, founding fathers.


But WHAT is JUSTICE, Cyril?

Very simple:

Punish he or she who uses force to deny or ignore someone else's right(s).

Punish he or she who steals, harms, kills, or subjects others.

Q.E.D. for recognizing the JUST Law.

Back to the point in context:

Having Putin, the Russian government, and RT with an agenda denouncing the infamy of ObaMARX or the Israhellish govt does not make them "better".

They are useful, maybe, to the cause of liberty, but this cause STILL requires understanding the dire need to return to small government and just laws.

Not to trade one form of big government and influence for yet another.

Question - Why is this piece

Question - Why is this piece of news not in RT News?

God Bless

Orthodox Russia! One of the truly last places on earth that will fight on the side of the ultimate truth. First of all, Israel did this illegal act of war on Orthodox Holy Pascha (Easter), which is an insult.

Putin is by far a better man than Obomber; no matter what you say Putin hasn't illegally invaded any countries without provocation, ever. The Russian Orthodox Church will never let Russia be taken over by western snakes and demons. My Orthodox priest once told me, that when he studied on Mt. Athos in Greece, the elder Paisios, a very spiritually gifted man, stated that the last country to defend the world against the Antichrist would be Russia. I believe this in full. Look at every way the west and it's minions try to ruin Russia, once you see all the connections you will begin to see the light as well. I also recommend every DPer to get some news from RT.com, as it will expand your world knowledge spectrum by 1000 percent over what the west feeds the masses.

So even though Russia is interested

In keeping current regime (which is pretty bad), to further russian interests, you think god should bless them? Russia has pretty big time corruption, I know we have our problems but Russia is actually a whole lot worse. Just strikes me how you can support them so readily over the action they say they'll take on one issue.


First of all, Israel did this illegal act of war on Orthodox Holy Pascha (Easter), which is an insult.

Is the Christian population in Syria eastern Orthodox I wonder?

"In his phone call to Netanyahu, the Russian leader

advised the Israeli prime minister to make sure to keep this in mind.

Moscow is retaliating not just for Israel's air operations against Syria but in anticipation of the Obama administration's impending decision to send the first US arms shipments to the Syrian rebels.

Intelligence agencies in Moscow and the Middle-East take it for granted that by the time Washington goes public on this decision, some of the Syrian rebel factions will already be armed with American weapons.

That the measure was in the works was signified by the introduction Monday by chairman of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee Bob Menendez of legislation allowing the US to provide arms and military training to the Syrian rebels." http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.php?nn=9107168122

Russia has contributed more Jews to Israel than any nation

Putin has got an arms deal with Syria and Israel is blowing it, and since so many people are former Russian in Israel, Putin thinks he can threaten them and that they give a damn about what he says? Ron and Rand would both agree that the USA go after Russia if Putin messes with Israel.

"go against Russia" I could

"go against Russia" I could cite Catholic teaching against war if you wanted from a very authoritative source.

If your morality and religion is just about how you "feel" against certain issues you cannot claim a Christian religion to be on your side + you lose credibility.

we have a few issues here

1. I don't come to DP seeking credibility. I have no credibilty. I have opinions, and I share them on DP. Sometimes I'm right, and sometimes I'm wrong, and when I'm wrong, I try to get a lesson out of it, understand my wrong and make it right.

I'm not for war. I am for self defense.

I am an American, not an Israeli, don't have duel citizenship, not interested in having duel citizenship.. I'm interested in America disentabling itself with Israel because Israel is our friend and we are not helping the situation in the ME.

There would be no Muslim or Catholic or Christian religion if it were not for Judaism, and for that reason, Israel should have the Temple Mount. Apparently the Musloms want to fight over it, because Israel occupies it, and rightfully so.

As far as this god is on someone's side, that is not how I see God.

I was not talking about religion in the former post and find it interesting you would bring it up, but since you did

Who do you believe should occupy the temple mount and why?
