The Battle Lines Have Been Drawn

It has become clear that behind the mutual arming between Iran and Russia is a new Molotov-Ribbentrop pact. Russia gets the entire Europe and Iran gets the entire Arab world, including Israel. Putin’s decision of course is not motivated by hostility against Israel, it is simply realpolitik. It makes sense to tie up American forces on a second southern front so as to weaken the northern front in Europe. This is simply a military strategy, plain and simple. The very same logic makes sense for Khomeinist Iran but in reverse. This does not mean of course that Israel will fight Russia in Europe or that Russia will fight Israel in the Middle East, but as battle lines are drawn there are no more reasons left for Israel not to arm Ukraine. After all, if Moscow arms Tehran, then why should Jerusalem not arm Kyiv? As we gear up for WWIII we know exactly who is in which camp. There is no more room for ambiguity. On the contrary, it is absolutely in Israel’s interest to prevent WWIII by making sure that Ukraine prevails against Russia.
