How the Ukrainian Crisis Impacts the Middle East – Herb Keinon
(Daily Alert)

Israel will try as best it can to stay out of the Ukrainian crisis. Israel has a good and cordial relationship with Moscow, and does not want to unnecessarily irritate Putin. Putin can, if he would want, make things much more difficult for Israel. That explains Jerusalem’s total radio silence regarding the crisis.

    Jerusalem’s concern is not only the possibility that the Ukrainian crisis could trigger a full-blown war, but also that a revival of a Cold War-like rivalry between the U.S. and Russia would harm Israel’s interests. It is critical – from Israel’s vantage point – for the U.S. and Russia to work together on Iran, and to be on the same page regarding the diplomatic process with the Palestinians. (Jerusalem Post)
