Russia will always have good relations with Iran, and this makes it difficult to build a strategic dialogue with Israel, said philosopher, analyst, and leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan on the air of the Conversation with a Sage program on Radio Zvezda, broadcasted on the YouTube channel on January 27.
Kurginyan stressed that Israel is keen to have good relations with Russia. But the Israelis are worried about Russia’s friendship with Iran because they have a great fear of Iran, which has become a neurosis.
“Iran in the Ahmadinejad era has done everything to say that the Zionist enemy will be destroyed… They fear it, they believe it. From my point of view, Israel’s fear of Iran is greatly exaggerated and turned into some kind of neurosis, but it is there,” the political scientist said.
At the same time, Kurginyan noted that Russia will always have good relations with Iran, and it cannot be otherwise. In his opinion, this is conditioned historically, territorially, geopolitically.
“It is impossible for these relations to be bad. It is so foreseen by destiny, territory and all the rest. We need the Caspian Sea, we need a lot of things,” the expert stressed.
The political scientist noticed that this causes anxiety in Israel and consequently causes difficulties in building Russian-Israeli relations on strategic level. However, according to him, Israelis should be more worried about the attitude of the “big brother” – the United States – to their state.
“There is a misunderstanding inside Israel regarding how easily America will trade the Israeli card, and then Israel turns from a motorboat that goes in the fairway of American politics into a boat that is dragged in tow by the American rope,” Kurginyan explained.
The political analyst added that Israelis need to understand that the “big brother” is not at all concerned about their existence. Until this understanding arises in Israel, it will be very difficult for Russia to conduct a strategic dialogue with Israel.
