The Noose Tightens: Russia Teams Up With Egypt

by David Mark

Despite the assumption that Egypt is a solid America ally, the Russian Ministry of Defense recently released a video showing a joint exercise between Egyptian and Russian navies in the Mediterranean Sea.

The impact of the joint exercise should not be underestimated as a blow to not only American dominance in the region, but a serious threat to Israel’s security. Already Russian “observers” are stationed on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights. If Russia continues to work wit Egypt, Israel’s southern frontier will be exposed.

America has been supplying Egypt with weapons since the 1979 Camp David Accords. The loss of such a strategic “ally” cannot not be ignored. The reason given for the joint exercise between Russia and Egypt is to enable them to work together to thwart Houthi attacks. This should sound vacuous since if Russia wanted they could tell Iran to simply have the Houthis stop attacking Western vessels. The Houthi provocations are merely a great excuse to push Egypt further away from America.

The world is changing and changing fast. The USA is on a fast retreat from regions that no one ever assumed it would pull back from. Israel can no longer rely on the USA and must build its own weapons. More than that Israel cannot assume that Egypt and Jordan will abide by their peace treaties and be prepared to retake regions like the Sinai, if Egypt decides to invade Israel.

The current conflict is fast transforming into a far wider war with existential implications for the Jewish State. The faster Israel’s leaders take all of this seriously the more prepared Israel will be to stave off defeat.

RE: “Israel can no longer rely on the USA and must build its own weapons.” Yes, yours is a correct assessment. Israel must diversify its relationships with other nations. Tragically, the impending catastrophic NATO-Russia War will create a new world “disorder.” Finally, Israel will persevere with G-d’s help and ingenuity. עַם יִשְׂרָאֵל חַי
