Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to let Israeli aircrafts fly freely in Syrian and Lebanese skies, Arab48.com reported on Tuesday.

The Israeli Minister of Jerusalem Affairs Ze’ev Elkin, who was Netanyahu’s translator and attended a Tuesday meeting, said that Netanyahu and Putin have a “credible” relationship, noting that Netanyahu is “using” it.

Elkin said that there is “no contradiction” between Netanyahu’s relations with Putin and his relations with the US President Barak Obama.

Regarding the security cooperation between the Russian and Israeli armies, Elkin said that Russia runs the forces in Syria, not the United States.

He said: “Therefore, if we wanted free aviation for our aerial forces in Lebanon and Syria and if we wanted to maintain the security and political interests of Israeli citizens, the Russians are our target.”

Netanyahu started a three-day visit to Moscow on Monday. It is his fourth and longest visit to the capital since the start of 2016.

    Oh to be a fly on the wall at this Netanyahoo Putin meeting. A ‘political corpse’ talking to the ‘BIG DOG.’ Sad. So sad. Dead man walking.

    Putin: Permission to fly combat aircraft over Syrian territory? Nyet. Now ask me a tough one.

  • eenymac

    So let me get this straight. Nutty-yahoo asks the permission of the Russian leader to fly his combat aircraft over the sovereign territories of Syria and Lebanon? Never mind the issue of asking permission from Putin in the first place, isn’t that actually simple aggression on Israels part and the sort of thing we are meant to criticize others for?
    After all, dictator Erdogan had his forces shoot down a Russian plane for (allegedly) breaching Turkey’s airspace for 17 seconds, and that was all fine and dandy. Any Israeli aircraft overflying it’s neighbours without the permission of the leadership of those nations should be fired upon, no questions, no warnings.

    Israel bombed the air defense school in Syria. Looks like Putin has come to heel for the Israeli’s.

  • Zaphod Braden

    Israel has 300+ NUKES — REFUSES inspections —- REFUSES to sign Non-ProliferationTreaty.
    Israel HATES Christianity & GENTILES and denies the Spiritual and Human EQUALITY of NONJews to Jews.
    Israel thinks GREATER ISRAEL should rule the World. “Greater Israel” is all land between the Nile and the Euphrates rivers, Syria, Jordan, most of Saudi Arabia. Greater Israel” requires the breaking up of the existing Arab states into small states. You can find maps they have drawn online. http://www.globalresearch.ca/g… Did you know what the two blue bands on their flag stand for? The Nile and the Euphrates. Israel (using the Gentile USA) is spreading chaos and fracturing all Civilization in the Peoples immediately around it in order to facilitate a land grab for “greater israel”.
    Israel has “DUAL-citizens”(sayanim) whose true loyalty is to Israel, embedded throughout American government/society. According to the Zionist creed, Israel is the state of the Jews, all the Jews. Every Jew in the world belongs to Israel, even if temporarily residing somewhere else
    If Israel could provoke nuclear apocalypse between America&Russia …..and China ….. BY WAY OF DECEPTION…. Israel would be the ONLY NUCLEAR ARMED SUPERPOWER left………
    Especially if it SNEAK nuked many of It’s HATED/HISTORICAL “enemies” While they are bombing each other.(Germany, Poland, England, Egypt, Iraq, basically ALL gentiles should “bear the YOKE of Israel”)Noted Israeli military historian Martin Van Creveld stated that Israel could find itself one day forced to exterminate the European continent using all kinds of weapons including its nuclear arsenal if it felt its demise neared, stressing that Israel also considers Europe a hostile target.
    Does Israel have nuclear missiles aimed at the main world capitals?? — You bet.
    Israel BRAGS about doing similar in Persia/Iran (75,000dead), Jews even CELEBRATE with Purim [slaughter of enemies] and Egypt(all the FIRST BORN CHILDREN)
    David Ben-Gurion, one of the father founders of Israel, described Zionist aims in 1948: “A Christian state should be established [in Lebanon], with its southern border on the Litani river. We will make an alliance with it. When we smash the Arab Legion’s strength and bomb Amman, we will eliminate Transjordan too, and then Syria will fall. If Egypt still dares to fight on, we shall bomb Port Said, Alexandria and Cairo… And in this fashion, we will end the war and settle our forefathers’ account with Egypt, Assyria, and Aram………….. read that again
    “and settle our forefathers’ account with Egypt, Assyria, and Aram”
    They are STILL HATING and planning deadly attacks after 3,500+ YEARS .
    How do you think they feel about JESUS CHRIST whom they HATE most of ALL.
    Israel’s MOTTOES:
    (1) NEVER forgive & NEVER forget.
    (2) By Way of Deception you will Do War.
    (3) Their “god” is a WAR god

      they are not afraid of US since they control every facets of USG now either Nutty is Warning Russia or asking nicely for violating and disrespecting a sovereignty of Syria and do business as usual with no consequences if Putin yields to pressure he loses respect on worldwide level

      • Dolores

        Mr. Putin is no fool, he plays a long game.

    • Dolores

      Sorry, I could only give 1 thumbs up!

      Israel will not be using launched nuclear weapons against Europe. Their nuclear devices are very likely already installed in all major and secondary centers in Europe waiting for their self pity to reach climax at our refusal to bow as slaves to them.

      • Zaphod Braden

        They really hope to see Russia(China) and America launch all their nukes at each other ……. leaving the GOYIM destroyed, unarmed, and at THEIR mercy.

  • Tim Veater

    What dirty deal is he up to this time?

    • Dolores

      And remembering he uses the Kol Nidre oath that forgives all oaths, promises, afermations to the goy!

  • Black Swan

    Maybe the S300 and S400 are not able to perform as advertised.

  • RoHa

    The plural of aircraft is the same as the singular. “Aircrafts” is wrong. But, grammar notwithstanding, the Russians should shoot down any and all Israeli military aircraft that enter Syrian or Lebanese airspace.

  • Dolores

    When these Israelis leave, please Mr. Putin check your pockets and your valuables!

    • Brian Crossland

      Well said I have pointed this out numerous times, it is so powerful, the prayer of psychopaths that excuses everything, I believe it accounts (along with other unique practises) for the murderous duplicity, chutzpah and bloodthirsty behaviour of these elitist racist thugs.
