PLO's Saeb Erekat says talks have ground to a halt due to Israel's rejection of Palestinian requests to resume full security duties in Area A.15:16 03.05.16 | 0 comments
Russia itself may not be a Moslem country but their circle of influence. (i.e.-the old USSR), had at least 50% or 150M Moslems within its territory. Moscow has always aligned itself the Moslems but has warmed considerably towards Israel over the last 20 years. This sale may work to draw Israel in tighter with them, since as its influence in the area increases Russia will get more attention from Israel, at a time when the US is spurning its longtime ally. Smart to show the Israelis that influence with Moscow would be beneficial.
