Why doesn't Russia defend Syria against Israeli fighter jets?

The image taken from social media shows the site of a reported Israeli strike in Masyaf, Hama Province, Syria, September 7, 2017.

This was a question asked on Quora and some had different answers, many talking in favor of #Israel with a lot of wishful thinking for the #Zionist apartheid Israel. Here’s my reply which covers some of the reasons.
Israel is a rogue borderless ‘entity’ living on land foreign imported immigrants stole from Palestinians using terrorism as the main method then waging horrific wars against its neighbors. Israelis couldn’t live a single day without complete funding from the USA, France, Germany and even from Russians but through a different way. US Aid to Israel – Try not to be shocked!
Here’s how the Political Zionism movement took control of all the Western countries: Political Zionism in the United States of America – Astounding Facts!
About 1 million Russians, many of them Jews, migrated to occupied Palestine aka Israel. They are a main source of income and trade and a profound system for money laundering, a much needed method to get investments move worldwide. Don’t take my words for it, just search online for the top criminal organizations in the world and it has to lead you to Israel.
Why Russia doesn’t stop Israeli planes? There are several reasons:

  • Putin trying to engage Israel positively to be able to keep the 1 million unwanted Russian citizens in there and thus doesn’t like to see a major war in the region.
  • When Hezbollah threatened to retaliate by targeting offshore oil fields against Israeli bombing of bridges, hospitals and schools, even schools under the UN during the latest 2 aggressions on Lebanon, western oil companies running the business in ‘Israel’ ran away and Russian companies came in to run these offshore gas and oil fields. Again, another reason he wouldn’t like a regional war that would destroy his investments there.
  • Israel is in reality the face of NATO on the ground, engaging directly in a conflict with it means a war with the whole NATO plus whatever Israel has. That’s one main reason why Syria couldn’t attack back at will, but eventually will do.
  • Israel now unveiled the enormous financial support it was getting from its peers in the region mainly Al Saudi and Qatar. All run by the same British created cults: Wahhabism = Zionism, just like what ISIS was created to do. So fighting back Israel means a war with these filthy rich regimes who control the outflow of oil and gas in the world, and can harm Russia by increasing their production to lower the prices of these main commodities, Russia’s main exports.

However, if Israel crosses the red line and attacks directly strategic Syrian bases, then Russia couldn’t do much to stop Syria and its allies to retaliate, and it would be doomsday. That’s why we see Israel attacking in a hit and run style and only targeting low level targets mainly storage houses said to have weapons headed to Hezbollah, as they claim.
If you might have noticed, if you do follow the Syrian crisis closely, only 2 units of the Syrian Arab Army are chasing terrorists all over the country: The 4th Mechanical Division of the Republican Guards and the Tiger Forces from the Special Forces Units. All of the SAA is being spared to defend the country from sudden invasion or aggression from the south or north. This also explains the loud voices of 80 plus countries including the USA and UK, without actually doing anything near what they did with Iraq or Libya or elsewhere.
Don’t hold your breath long, the latest Saudi stunt by kidnapping the Lebanese prime minister and forcing him to resign Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri Resigns his Post from Saudi from Riyadh on a Saudi TV channel was only to set the stage for the most awaited regional war: Saudi Puppet Hariri’s Resignation to Fuel War in Syria and Beyond.
It is always better to wait until your enemies are tired while you strengthen your position before going to war directly. Better always to choose the time of war not to retaliate at the time convenient to your enemy. #Syria works like that, which is better to stage a regional war: when Syria was invaded by over 350,000 anti-Islamic Wahhabi Suicide terrorists taking much of the land and stealing and controlling huge resources or when you clean the country from this filth?
Better for Russia to face-off all of #NATO plus Israel plus the Gulfies or wait until the dollar loses more of its value with more countries starting to trade in bilateral currencies (currencies of the two countries) bypassing the US dollar. While also waiting for these same actors on the US side to be worn out in conflicts worldwide they ignited.

I really enjoy off-guardian articles and I am a huge supporter of arab culture and I would be very negative towards the colonisation of Palestine, but I really am surprised that you have deemed to print this rubbish. I don’t think any of the arguments used here stand up to any scrutiny. Why doesn’t Russia defend Syria? The question is a very complex one and deserves a very complex answer. Russia’s interests in Syria are strategic. They support Assad only as far as they do not want the country to fall to Western sphere of influence. They will only get involved if the fight is existential for Syria, Lebanon or Iraq – otherwise they see it as local politics. Conflict with Israel would automatically incur conflict with USA. Both Russia and USA have a set of stand off agreements and Israel would be mentioned many times in those agreements! Israel can only make occasional individual strikes that can be described as territorial defence (whether you agree or disagree with this – there is a lot of room for argument about what defines ‘territorial’).

This is an interesting article. But it fails to mention that there is a third possibility in addition to Russia either shooting down Israeli jets or doing nothing: namely, having the Russians give Syria their new S-400 anti-missile, anti-aircraft system. Why not? They’ve already sold it to Turkey, Iran, and Saudi Arabia? If it were the Syrians defending their own territory, it would surely give Russia plausible deniability.

Thanks. #PESCO has the latest on EU military unification. It’s highly unstable…politically, economically and militarily. The US/EU and their allies in the Middle East are the danger…the ruling class. Organised labour in the West has been in retreat since the ’70’s, although there’s been some build up again since the invasion of Iraq and the bank crash. In the UK Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party shows something of a labour movement in response to the crisis. But they have posed little threat to the upper echelons of the ruling class, so far. The politics in the US is largely a shambles with the EU not far behind. That leaves the BRICS and their support for a balance of powers in the Middle East.


Unfortunately the US is already suffering blowback from its enslavement to Zionist controlled Western foreign polcies. Constant references to possible terrorist attacks are a direct result of a violent and imperial American foreign policy! Think of that thenext time you cheer for supporting the troops, while they unfortunately create life long new enemies for the US.


Reblogged this on Worldtruth and commented:
An interesting perspective.


Waiting for US$ to crash is a fool’s game.


Petro-Yuan ! The US$ will just morph into the Yuan. Money has no nationality.

Most US military engagements in this century is for direct defence of the US dollar. Russia and China know it’s a worthless currency that the US Federal Reserve just creates at will with no counter party for the creation.
Hussein knew this, Qaddafi knew this, heck, Europe knows this. It won’t crash, it will just become worthless over night at some point. It will be at the end of several military engagements that the United States will lose.
As long as the United States controls trade and forces trade in the dollar, it creates the illusion of worth with these coupons. To keep other leaders compliant it, it either bribes them, or uses threats like murder and war – threats they carry out, to keep them in line.
The United States has a weak military, a joke for a navy that has twice run into cargo ships due to pure incompetence, a bloated air force. It can’t win a war decisively in a 3rd world nation, it has no chance against direct conflict against Iran or North Korea, and certainly not against China and Russia. That’s the only thing propping up the US dollar. I give it a couple decades at most. Even Europe will eventually leave it.


Many of us hoping your prediction comes to fruition Richard!
