Israel's regional 'gun-boat' diplomacy works as long as there are no bigger gun-boats involved. A confrontation with 'gun-boat' Russia is out of Israel's league and Russia knows how to play brinkmanship with the US. This chapter may not end well for Israel. But then again that might be good for Israel in the long term, as it recognises its proper destiny as a peaceful role model for regional leadership. The vast majority of its neighbours' populations aspire to Israel's open and prosperous society. But it is dificult for people on the ground to support you when you are blowing them up. Maybe Russia's current open involvement will do good. Hopefully, they no longer draw red lines.
