This is another bone-head decision by Barak (and no doubt supported by the greed of the defense industry). There is no clear quid pro quo evident in the deal, no parallel restrictions on Russian sales to Israel's enemies. And these drones will be used against some of Israel's friends (Georgia, for example). But any claim that Russia won't use these drones to leap-frog the state of their own drone technology is contradicted by the fact that they will all be assembled in RUSSIA. Unless Israel is delivering kits they'll learn everything they need to know, from material fabrication to control systems.
