Russian Ambassador Accuses Israel Of Being Responsible For Middle East Political Turmoil

Israelis steady annexation of Palestinian territories and frictions between Israel-Iran, Israel-Palistine, and Israel-Hezbollah have created a volatile environment in the Middle East. Anatoly Viktorov, Russian Ambassador to Israel recently accused Israel of being responsible for the political turmoil in the Middle East. Viktorov blamed Israel for its constant actions against the Hezbollah group and Iranian assets in Syria and other countries.

The accusation against Israel came during an interview with an Israeli newspaper, Jerusalem Post last Tuesday. Israel’s noncompliance with U.N. resolutions in the Israel-Arab and Israel-Palestinian conflict was a huge point of contention. Newsweek reporters spoke to Israeli and Hezbollah officials as tensions between the two parties ran high. Both Israel and Hezbollah expressed readiness for possible conflict . Viktorov said “Israel is attacking Hezbollah, Hezbollah is not attacking Israel” Viktorov comtinued “There is no way that we are approving any Israeli strikes on Syria, never in the past and never in the future.”

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov was critical of the U.S. involvement in Syria. He sighted U.S. double standards of “denying help to Syria, even when humanitarian issues are raised”. Lavrov blamed the Trump administration for unilateral departure from the Iranian Nuclear Agreement in 2015. Russia strongly condemned it as “a terrorist act clearly aimed to destabilize the situation and escalate conflict.”

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, in a 2019 press conference in Tehran, warned President Trump about initiating a conflict with Iran thru Israel. The Minister said “If the trigger of war in the Middle East is pulled by you using your surrogates at the insistence of Israel, then the war will trigger another kind of war which will bring China, Russia, all the nations into a war”. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan also said addressing Trump. “The war will end America as you know it”.
