With all due respect af_vet_1981,
Russia has a greater influx of Muslim migrants than Germany (albeit from different parts of the Muslim world) and far stronger Islamic holdouts such as Chechnya, led by Ramzan Kadyrov who is heavily propped by Putin, and is home to numerous homegrown terrorists. Russia allows Muslim migrants to enter visa free from former Soviet holdouts because ethnic-Russia is in demographic free-fall and there is a shortage of labor.
Moscow is second only to Paris in terms of sheer size of Islamic presence in a major European city.
Both Germany and Russia support the Iran Nuclear Deal with Russia being FAR more the ally not just economically but militarily. Both Germany and Russia voted AGAINST declaring Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. With Russia going out of their way to reach out to Palestinians in paving the way for a 2-state solution.
Syria’s Bashar Al-Assad HATES Israel.
And it’s only because of Trump’s staunch support strategic approach to the Middle East that Russia has to answer to Israel (and not the other way around as it was before.)
Not to mention the large presence of Jews from Russia/Ukraine/greater USSR who make up the population of Israel. So there’s only so much of a button you can push.
