I don't know how much Israel gives to Russia every year for oil, but it will be something. The trouble is: Some goods are not purchased just for fun or life style improvement, but because there is need for them. Firms like Siemens may also have some power on prize politics, making it more difficult to avoid them. I don't know how the Israeli budget situation is, but there seemingly is considerable poverty among big parts of the population. It could actually be interesting to ask Israeli macroeconomists to give an assessment of the situation, about needs and wishes, compromises etc. A big problem that I perceive when I read Haaretz is actually the overwhelming discourse concerning foreign politics, culture and security, and lacking consideration for social concerns - at least as I see it on the international edition.
