Globes believes that Israel can live with Russia in Syria, and contends that while Russia is exploiting Western weakness to strengthen its position in the Mediterranean, Israeli interests are not necessarily threatened. The author adds: “Israel is still the strongest military force in the region and the Russians know it. They have no obvious reason to challenge the Israeli position and many reasons to accommodate it. Putin is a rational actor and makes his decisions based on strategic calculations. So is Netanyahu.”
