Got to be kidding, the rivalry between Turkey and Russia- Ukraine, Crimea, Libya, Syria Armenia..is going to do what in its proposals for 2 state policy, Syrian interests..? Its worse then. Mr. Mecouris, Turkey is wild, we have no idea of what it will do next, continue in Nato, S4000 or S35s ….Putin including Turkey in brief statement is testamony of Russia abandonment of diplomatic process and attempt to manipulate the schematical. We all better start learning vodoo. Marshall.

It did make me laugh about the 2 Presidents agreeing ( 22:44 ) ” a dual state solution for the Palestinian/Israeli conflict based on the universally recognised norms of International Law.”
Did the reunification of Russia and the Crimea conform to the universally recognised norms of International Law. Apparently not.
Did the Turkish massacre and forcible expulsion of Armenians and Anatolian Greeks conform to International Law. Certainly on the former, the Turks are losing heavily.
When politicians invoke “International Law”, it’s never a clever idea. It can easily turned against you.

Very disappointing commentary by Alex on this topic. What he has done is to simply para-phrase what the American ongoing stance is on this conflict with no changes what so ever in their devious foreign policies.

Agreed. What was Hamas supposed to do when the zionist war machine started with its customary massacre of Palestinians in Gaza – turn the other cheek perhaps? Of course it hit back and it had every right to do so. I think when the final figures come out that will be overwhelmingly show that Palestinians died in a 10 to 1 ratio.

Please see operations Cast Lead and Protective Edge. Deaths among Palestinians are usually cited by Zionist warlords and officials as ‘mowing the grass.’

I noticed that your golden retriever previously laying peacefully on the floor, immediately had to stand up and change room at the very moment you started reading the trabscript of the phone call between Biden and Netanyahu….

Good boy! Porbably not willing to hear stupidities…

I noticed at other times he heard very interested from the sofa your whole analysis on other issues….

Well, as the commenters complain, I must recall the wartning by Alexander Mercouris at the first minutes of his video stating “he has to be very carefull with the wording”, as he is probably aware the ongoing censorship campaign on anyone trying to tell the facts in Gaza right now, as the wiping out of the tower hosting AP and Al Jazeera so clearly shows and the deleting by Facebook of any comments favorable to the Plaestinian side, plus the immediate wiping out of any comment related on sites previously somehow let´s say “neutral” on the Isaeli-Palestinian issue like former… Read more »
