Foreign Minister Avigdor Libeberman, met with Putin on December 7, 2011. During that meeting. Avigdor Lieberman is a Russian Jew and speaks Russian. He discussed with Putin the serious crisis with Iran and Syria. In the meeting, he said to the Russian leader: "You have the power to resolve the entire crisis in Syria and in Iran. China has agreed, behind the scenes, that if Russia takes the lead, it will follow suit."
This means that Iran cannot survive without the support of China and Russia. That support could end simply by Putin stepping on the world stage, and as Avigdor Lieberman said, "Being the savior of the world at this present moment." I don't like the comparison.
Putin despises both President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton has done everything to try to undermine and embarrass the Russian leader. On the other hand, Mr. Lieberman has done everything possible to build bridges with Putin—not because he agrees with him, but because he realizes the seriousness of the situation.
The fact that President Putin is flying to Israel is extremely significant in view of the intelligence information. If Putin takes the bait, then both the Syrian crisis and the Iranian crisis could end. If the Russian president can get the credit for it, a multitude of lives will be spared.
