    My sentiments exactly to the above comment and I could not have stated it better. The russians do not care at all about Israel and frankly speaking may be the most hostile nation of all to the Jewish State. Anyway, Lavrov’s brain must be filled with vodka because the issue is not simply whether Iran will use its nuclear power against Isfael but whether they will be able to use it to upset the balance of deterrence in the Middle East and whether its acquisition of nuclear weapons will set off an arms race in the region.

  • Lavrov’s statement about Iran not attacking Israel with an atom bomb is as reliable as that of Vyacheslav Molotov in June 1941 “Only a fool would attack us” as quoted in Hitler and Stalin : Parallel Lives (1993) by Alan Bullock, p. 715. Only a few days after that statement, on June 22, 1941, Hitler attacked.

    Lavrov need to read Matthias Küntzel – Antisemitism, Messianism and the Cult of Sacrifice:The Iranian Holy War
