  • Where Was the Fallout When Russia Recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital? – Eyal Zisser
    Russia announced in April that Jerusalem and not Tel Aviv is the capital of Israel. Yet Arab leaders, from the presidents of Syria and Egypt to the king of Saudi Arabia, make pilgrimages to the Kremlin to meet with Putin. Just a few weeks ago, Putin hosted a summit in Sochi with the presidents of Iran and Turkey. None of these leaders remonstrated with Putin’s declaration that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, and the matter did nothing to weaken Russia’s standing in the region. The writer, vice rector at Tel Aviv University, is former director of its Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies. (Israel Hayom)
