Biden asks Israeli authorities to increase military aid to Ukraine

36

During a visit to Jerusalem, US President Joe Biden raised the issue of increasing Israeli military assistance to Ukraine. The head of the White House asked Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid about this.


Recently, the issue of supply weapons to Ukraine has become one of the main contradictions in relations between the United States and Israel. Unlike most of Washington's European allies, Israel is in no hurry to increase aid to Ukraine. This is due to a number of factors.

Thus, Israel has long developed a special relationship with Russia, based on the observance of mutually beneficial interests. A large number of immigrants from Russia live in Israel, including ethnic Russians - these are the spouses of Jews who left for historical homeland and other relatives.

Finally, Israel has no ideological basis for helping the Kyiv regime, whose militias openly profess Nazi ideology. If Poland or Latvia, for well-known reasons, swastikas on the chevrons of Ukrainian militants do not jar at all, then in Israel it will not work to look at it indifferently anyway.

However, Israel is under pressure from the United States, on which the country is highly dependent for military and financial support. Under pressure from Washington, Israel was forced to change its policy towards the Ukrainian conflict and take a more pro-Kiev position than before. But until recently, Israel did not supply modern weapons to Ukraine. Biden wants to correct this unfortunate oversight, from Washington's point of view.

The Ukrainian authorities have repeatedly turned to Israel with a request to supply countermeasure systems for unmanned aerial vehicles. Israel regularly rejected these requests from Kyiv. But two weeks ago, Yair Lapid took over as acting prime minister of Israel. He takes a tougher stance on Russia.

Shortly before Biden's arrival in Israel, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz authorized the delivery of "additional equipment" to Ukraine. The list of this equipment includes 1500 helmets, 1500 body armor, 1000 gas masks, protective suits for demining. As you can see, there are no weapons yet, but there is a lot of useful ammunition that can be used by no means civilian organizations. The United States supported the decision to allocate such assistance, but recalled that Ukraine also has some "special needs", which the Israeli side in Washington is very much counting on the implementation of.

In addition to the Ukrainian conflict, the “Iranian problem” is also a topic for discussion between Biden and Lapid. Yesterday, Biden openly stated that the United States could influence Iran by military means if the Islamic Republic does not abandon its plans to create its own nuclear weapons.

Also, Biden's visit to Israel, after which the US president will go to Saudi Arabia, is also aimed at normalizing Israeli-Saudi relations. Earlier, Israel has already restored ties with the UAE, now Saudi Arabia is next in line. Tel Aviv and Riyadh have a common strategic adversary - Iran, therefore, despite the traditional Arab-Jewish contradictions, neither Israel nor Saudi Arabia can escape from cooperation against Iran. The United States in this case plays the role of patron, which develops ties between its junior regional partners.

    Biden asks Israeli authorities to increase military aid to Ukraine
    And they need it, help ... pay your money, then ...

      Twenty percent of Israeli citizens support Russia's special operation in Ukraine - the result of independent polls of the population, at least three! Gantz does not want to be smart, because if he supports Ukraine, he will lose the support of almost two million voters. And secondly, Israel wants not yours, not ours, and to milk two cows at the same time, both the United States and Russia. Thirdly, Syria and Iran. Russia protests against the shelling of Syria but does nothing, with Iran the opposite is true. Therefore, the most beneficial time for the Israeli economy and the bubble is to stand aside and collect foam from possible incomes and acquisitions in a muddy environment and dust, where a bear and an American donkey are fighting with an elephant. Fourth, Israel hopes to be a mediator in resolving the final stage of the conflict. I would like to remind you that the author of the article forgot to mention the Israeli mercenaries who openly admitted their participation in hostilities against Russian troops, and whose actions were supported by the chief rabbi of the Ukroreich, brought himself, placed himself, brought them together with the right people. And blessed on the video. Now I understand why in the synagogue of Dnepropetrovsk in Soviet times a sports hall was set up for practicing power wrestling for the children of the city. And also a prayer house for Jews. Good luck on the roads. Fifthly, the neutrality of the Arab environment, while Russia is not up to the Middle East.

    is the "Iranian problem".

    as soon as Israel activates arms supplies to Ukraine, Russia will step up military assistance to Iran. The United States is on the sidelines, the rest are in the ass.

      When delivering weapons to Ukraine by Israel, it is urgent to make deliveries of missiles and weapons to Hezbollah. And a lot. Let them then disentangle what they want. And we have normal relations with Hezbollah.

        This means that these are the first candidates for receiving captured MANPADS from the LDNR and from the RF Armed Forces. And then all sorts of gods chosen by God unknown and why flew over the Arab land!

      Any US PROXY war is a means of enrichment for the US itself. The US State Department does not even hide this. And also a means for the dominance of the United States over the worlds in the guise of a world colonial hegemon.
      At the same time, the lower the cost of the PROXI war organized by Washington for a set of other countries, the greater the US profit from their PROXY war.
      For the United States, their PROXY wars around the world are nothing but their most profitable American business - the colonial business on the blood of their parasitic existence.

      Mattresses in one face have not done anything for a long time. Their strategy is to bind as many participants as possible with mutual responsibility and blood, so that the responsibility for all crimes against humanity would not be personal, but collective. It seems that this time the American skunk made a mistake because he chose the wrong victim, and therefore will be responsible for what he did.

    There is a problem: Ben Salman personally returned to Israel 21 of his officers from our captivity ... hook-nosed lads were recorded under the video and immediately after that Israel merged even in the supply of armor. To go over agreements with Putin and get a video at the UN about the participation of Jews on the side of the Nazis and Bandera - this is the scrapping of the legend of the Holocaust ... but do they need it?

        The opposition press in Israel is not an official source, and Israel did not officially confirm nuclear weapons either ... and Ben Salman brought his officers from our captivity to Erdogan on a private plane, the whole visit Erdogan had such a puke expression on his face! But the Turk himself messed up with the participation of his military experts in Marik, along with other NATO officers ... therefore, Putin humiliated Erdogan, handing over the prisoners to him through the most hated intermediary for Erdogan - Ben Salman, making it clear that we know about Erdogan's participation in Ukraine against us and are not going to discuss his cant. Ben Salman was already shining all over - after all, such an intermediary participation emphasizes his role in world politics by all three parties (we, Jews and Turks), and he is not yet a king, but everyone treats him with respect (some - with forced), in the East Putin's step towards Ben Salman was appreciated!

        Yes, the Jews, and so everyone, to put it mildly, dislikes. And if they also take the side of the Nazis, then ... It will not work out at all that the Jews staged a Nazi coup and a war. Then it will be possible to openly hate them, and fairy tales about the Holocaust will no longer fail.

          What are the image losses? For them to be, you first need the actual image. And God's chosen ones don't have it! But their love for the Bandera people who killed them is boundless!

      Yes, Lapid is not Benya Netanhu. This pots will give Biden in the rear with ease. But I still think to be afraid that Russia will arm Iran with something serious to give Ukraine. For Israel, first of all, the balance of parities with Iran is important. The country of Israel is too small, 120 by 500 km, there will be nowhere to retreat in the event of a big war. And in a war with Iran, a nuclear bomb will be indispensable. It is unlikely that, apart from helmets and first aid kits, they will help Ukraine in any way.

    Thus, Israel has long developed a special relationship with Russia, based on the observance of mutually beneficial interests.

    And Russian wives! Israel does not supply weapons to the Ukronats, and Russia does not supply Iran. Putin is flying to Tehran just the other day. The new prime minister needs to think 33 times. Biden will leave, but the ayatollahs will remain.

    Are they trying to assemble an anti-Iranian coalition? The fact is that they themselves will not "wet" Iran, if anything.

    The cunning Israelis will now again find fault with the words of Lavrov or someone else, they will make an offended face and with the words: "You are to blame" will begin to fulfill the wishes of the evil grandfather. They have long since learned to sell their Holocaust. The paths are already trodden and filled. The pain of the nation is to the left, the shekels are to the right.

    Yair Lapid takes over as acting prime minister of Israel. He takes a tougher stance on Russia
    Isn't it too much divorced with a "tough position" in relation to Russia? How "beautiful" Biden looked in a yarmulke (yarmulke) with a stupid expression on his face. There was a feeling that he did not understand where he was, that he was pulled on the top of his head. Well, after a lengthy speech about Semitism-anti-Semitism, the "honor of the Holocaust" it became clear that the batteries were running low.

    And why did Israel stop "help" (that is, its participation in a dirty business - aggression against the Russian Federation)?
    There is an opinion that some Jews (Israelis, Jews ....) were caught red-handed and extradited to their "historical homeland".

    But this already really looks like evidence of the degradation of the US political elites. Even Machiavelli forbade the establishment of friendly relations between his vassals, giving examples of compliance and non-compliance with the rule "Divide and Conquer". Well, so much the worse for them.
