Without prejudice to Russian-born Israelis (many made distinguished contributions to early Israel), I would feel very wary of people from the ex-Soviet Union playing extremist politics with an electoral base raised in a country with no historical understanding of democratic institutions, whose history missed out on the Renaissance, the Reformation, and the Enlightenment, as Ernest Gellner, a great Jewish thinker once said. p.s. 'process of intentions' (procès d'intention) is best put as 'put someone in the dock on a mere assumption/supposition of their wrong-doing. Excuse the correction. I do not otherwise write French as well as you do English.
