'No one makes alliances with the weak,' says Prime Minister shortly after meeting Putin.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu offered a glimpse into his strategic aspirations Thursday at a Jewish New Year's reception at Mossad headquarters, which also marked 65 years since the intelligence arm's founding.

"We cannot solve the basic problems of the Middle East," he said. "They are revealing themselves in their full force, and today our enemy is a double enemy: it is radical Shi'ite Islam that is led by Iran and its proxies, and the Sunni one, currently led by ISIS (Islamic State)."

Comment: These statements are meant for public consumption. Mossad is already on board. The government of Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah have been made to become enemies because of Israel's covert and overt aggression in the middle east. And funny how ISIS has not made any movements into Israel, ain't it? That's because, for all intents and purposes, ISIS has been created, maneuvered and manipulated into doing Israel's bidding in Syria and Iraq.

"They fight each other, but they agree that we have no place in this Muslim region, as they see it. The alliances change, they rise and fall and rise again and send arms in various directions, including ours."

"There is one certain rule," Netanyahu intoned: "No one strikes an alliance with the weak. Our true defense in the years of the state's existence and the 65 years that the Mossad is marking now, is the strength of the state of Israel. It is this strength that we maintain."

Comment: 'By way of deception,' 'the ends justify the means,' and 'might makes right' in the psychopathic logic of Netanyahu and his ilk.

"In the face of this changing world, Israel must be a power. Not just a regional power, but in some spheres, a world power."

Three days ago, Netanyahu met Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss regional arrangements.

Netanyahu said he was determined to stop arms deliveries to the Hezbollah terrorist group that has been aiding Assad forces, and accused Syria's army and Iran of trying to create a "second front" against Israel. Iran has deployed hundreds of additional soldiers from its Revolutionary Guards Force in an effort to prevent flagging pro-Assad forces crumbling in the face of concerted rebel offensives on their western heartlands.

Comment: Here, Iran and Hezbollah's helping to defend Syria against and the ISIS hordes of hell, and their own national interests and security is equated with trying to create a "second front" against Israel. A somewhat revealing if unwitting admission of who Israel really stands with.

Putin for his part said Russia's actions in the Middle East "always were and will be very responsible," and downplayed the threat by Syrian forces to Israel.

"We know and understand that the Syrian army and Syria in general is in such a state that it isn't up to opening a second front - it is trying to maintain its own statehood," he said in comments broadcast on Russian television.
