I think I know the answer.. the stronger.
Israel`s best ally: America or Russia?
It is always dangerous to rely on a protecting empire: Jews tried that with Assyria, Rome, and Persia.
Fortunately, Israel need not rely on anyone: her arsenal of nuclear bombs, if wielded wildly enough, would force everyone from Tehran to Washington to behave in our region to our liking (Beware Americans! Don't intimidate the little jewish state )
. No one would like the mad Jews to nuke the oilfields
, and no one can do anything to prevent us from doing so. To be mad is easy and feasible: reduce the army to the level clearly insufficient for a conventional war and pass a law which mandates automatic nuclear strike over the enemyâ€™s attack, mobilization, or nuclearization.
In terms of alliances, the American one is empty. Our earthly protector gives Egypt and Palestine more aid than us, supplies Arabs more weapons than us, and pushes us around diplomatically. Russia is better ( )
: it never
pushed a client to suicidal peace
with its enemies. Russia, if aligned with Israel, would be interested in our expansion
rather than shrinking into the eight-mile-wide borders. Being a normal rather than professedly moral state, Russia would want its client to win rather than capitulate to the defeated enemies. Russia would love to lure the proverbial American client and in a brink of eye establish control over the Middle East. (aha)
Russia cannot give us as much aid as America in nominal dollar
terms, but can match it in purchasing power parity terms because Russian weapons
cost three to ten times lower than the comparable American systems; Russian weapons are not perfect, but good enough against Arabs. More importantly, Russian military support would be unwavering: the Soviet Union has been arming Egypt for years and free before the US started meager deliveries to Israel at high prices. During the Yom Kippur war, Russia launched airlift to Egypt on the day one and brought nuclear missiles to its clientâ€™s defense, while the US Administration procrastinated until Israel decided the war with available weapons. (So it's a weapons-vs-money argument. Shylock must be rolling in his grave )
Israel the American client invokes no fear because everyone knows that Americans are slow to react. Itâ€™s totally different with Russia which has no money to bribe its enemies and therefore choose to fight
, or otherwise uproot
them (same tactics)
. Russia arouses the kind of raw-power respect among Arabs, and they would not dream of attacking Israel a Russian associate. Palestinian and Lebanese terrorists, Syria and Iran would suddenly become nice to Israel. It is not nice to join thugs, but if you canâ€™t beat â€˜emâ€¦ Maccabees were more practical: they had no qualms switching from the progressive Syro-Grecians to the relatively barbarous Roman thugs.(Why am I not surprised?)
True, Russians are anti-Semitic, but so were the Romans and so are the Americans (Really? Someone should research why )
. It was a joint Anglo-American-Russian decision to refuse ransoming a million Jews from Germany. All the Allies refused announcing the ongoing Holocaust during their radio broadcasts onto the occupied territories, so that Jews may know and flee. America, Europe, and Russia condemned Israeli attack on Osiraq. Jews have no friends (the poor things.. I wonder why )
, but our allies should better be mad. (Birds of a feather..)
