In my latest piece for Responsible Statecraft, I look at Israel’s reluctance to condemn Russia for its invasion of Ukraine. I look at its excuses for doing so and find they don’t stack up at all. In the end, Israel is making a cold calculation: although they have exponentially more invested in the United States and Europe, those two entities have steadfastly refused to respond to even the gravest insult, while Russia might react strongly to even the merest slight.

It’s the worst kind of political cowardice and demonstrates once again how unreliable an ally Israel, how selfish, how amoral Israel really is. I back the case up in this piece.
