Russia USA Israel Iran and Syria: a continuous struggle to trigger or avoid war

The Syrian defence system shot down by mistake a Russian Ilyushin IL-20M 90924 surveillance plane in Syria with 15 servicemen on board on Monday evening, the day after an Israeli F-16 destroyed an Iranian military cargo plane on the Damascus airport runway killing the second pilot. Simultaneously with the downing of the Russian plane, four Israeli F-16s attacked Syrian and Iranian military targets around the northern city of Latakia. The Syrian air defence system responded against the incoming missiles and hit the Russian plane while in landing position over the Hamymeen military airport. This took place only hours after the signing of a deal between presidents Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan to halt the battle of Idlib and defuse the possibility of seeing Syrian army barracks and military airports destroyed. Who is pushing for a wider war and why are Russia and Iran refraining from responding to the many provocations in Syria?

Israel | A new shameful crime: apartheid voted as the Basic Constitutional Law of Israel

by Savas Michael Matsas

Today, July 19, 2018, early morning, the Israeli Knesset, the Parliament of the Zionist State controlled by the ruling far right coalition under Benjamin Netanyahu, passed by 62 votes against 55 and one abstention its apartheid “Nation-State of the Jewish People” Basic Law, abolishing even the “democratic” façade of the 1948 “Declaration of Independence of Israel”. Not only Arabic ceases to be an “official language” but a destructive blow is given to all the extremely restricted rights of the Palestinian Arab citizens of the occupied country. Segregation according to ethnicity and religion is established and “Jewish settlements” are praised and inaugurated as the State’s highest “national value”. But also the rights of the Israeli Jewish citizens, who do not conform to the so called “ultra-orthodox” distorted version of Judaism ordered by the corrupt rabbis supporting Netanyahu, are under immediate attack.

Putin – Netanyahu meeting in Moscow

by Elijah J Magnier

Much speculation and many “positive outcome” comments were released about a “secret deal” alleged to have taken place during the meeting between the Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week in Moscow. The Israeli media described it as “successful”, like the last visits (three in the last six months). However, Russian sources say the opposite, despite the hints of positiveness Putin mentioned. These hints were exaggerated and interpreted by Netanyahu as “an achievement”.
