An article in The Jerusalem Post:
Netanyahu, Putin speak for close to an hour amid cold Russia-Israel ties
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin for close to an hour on Sunday.T
In terms of politics, the only important thing is that the discussion took place. It shows ongoing connection and communication despite the obvious differences of opinions and stances. Israel has to carefully maneuver between the greatest powers of the world, and Netanyahu does that very well.
The rest is the usual and necessary posturing to the global audiences, and also, it is how journalists interpret what “ was said according to sources.”
More important is what reportedly Netanyahu said: “I think that in this fight, justice is on our side and unity as well. When we are united as a people and a state, no force can prevent us from doing the right thing,”
This is what we have to focus on — regardless of who is saying it.
As long as Jews in and outside of Israel are united and can keep this unity regardless of the states and conditions we find ourselves in, we remain strong and “virtually invincible.”
Through our unique unity and mutual guarantee — which we have to foster and keep above and against the inherently selfish, egocentric, and individualistic human nature — we also become similar to nature’s fully and mutually integrated system. This similarity gives us the ability to draw and harness nature’s developing forces that are stronger than any force humans can create or generate.
Through our sustained unity we have to become a pathway for these positive and constructive forces towards everybody else. When we do so, even our enemies change their stance against Jews and Israel.
