Ex-Mossad Head: Russia Decided Trump Was Their Best Candidate, and Ran Him for President. There have been similar stories around for some time, like Could Donald Trump really be spying for Vladimir Putin? from the Irish Times. Or the Theory of Trump Kompromat at the New Yorker.
This sort of question is certainly out of my pay grade but it would explain a lot. Much has been made of Trump throwing the Kurds under the bus with the recent withdrawal from Syria but Israel is in the crosshairs too, they never saw the withdrawal coming. Trump was their new best friend, remember? But his attachment to Putin is somehow stronger.
Russia came down on the Israelis with a strong condemnation today. The Russians and Iranians are gearing up to divide the country and the Turks plan on eradicating a lifelong nemesis in the Kurds. Netanyahu thought he was such good pals with Trump but Donald was not about to cross his Russian masters.
I blame the Israeli Prime Minister for many things, not the least of which was putting his faith in another man who could not be trusted.
