While President Obama uses his remaining time in office campaigning for Hillary Clinton, and possibly violating the Hatch Act, Vice President Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry have been busy trying to mend bridges with Israel. After the discovery of the Tamar and Leviathan natural gas reserves under the Mediterranean Sea, Israel now has the potential to become a player in the world energy markets. As Russian oil is being cut off from energy-hungry Europe via the battles over Ukrainian and Syrian pipelines, the Globalists want Israeli gas to fill the void in the market.

But the division between the US and Israel has only widened since the passage of the Iran nuclear deal, which the Israelis were violently opposed to, even threatening to bomb Iranian nuclear facilities. Washington has offered European energy markets in exchange for Israeli support for toppling Assad, but Israel has fashioned its own deal with – you guessed it – Putin.
“Imagine the horror then on John Kerry’s ashen stone face when he learned of another development involving Turkey and Israel. Erdogan, reportedly on Israeli urging, extended a public apology to Russia for the November, 2015 shoot-down of the Russian jet, and agreed to pay compensation to the Russian state and the family of the murdered pilot. Erdogan did the unexpected. He publicly apologized and met all Russian preconditions for restoring diplomatic relations. There is an old New York expression, ‘The fly in the soup,’ indicating some detail that ruins the broth. For Kerry, Washington and the oligarchs who run them, Putin has just become the huge Russian Brown Bear in the US Middle East soup.”
After Erdogan restored relations with Russia, Netanyahu welcomed Russian financial assistance and investment with the Leviathan and Tamar ventures. Now, Russia has replaced the US as the deal maker, and may have found a way to circumvent the West’s barriers to the European market. What’s more, Russia has also taken over Syrian air space with their S-series missile systems, so any attempt by Washington to interfere with the pipelines would precipitate a war. In order for Israel, Turkey, and Russia to fully benefit from this arrangement, the war in Syria must end, and joining with the US in their five year quagmire against Assad is antithetical to Israeli goals for the region. Since Turkey sits on the doorstep of Europe, how can this arrangement actually penetrate into the EU?
The loss of Britain from the EU means that the only remaining economic counterweight to the German powerhouse is Italy. As it turns out, Italy has suffered severely under the Russian sanctions over Crimea as well as the Syrian refugee crisis, and now Italian, French, and German politicians have discussed and met with their Russian counterparts to put an end to the sanctions. Part of that effort may involve the deals already being made by Israel and Turkey, and Italy could be a part of that deal as it lies between Europe and the Middle East.
And there are some very, very tenuous clues that Italy is wandering off of the reservation. If you read the previous article concerning Obama’s executive order on space weather, I speculated that both the Globalists in Washington as well as the Russians have sparingly used covert tectonic weaponry as a means to overcome the nuclear deterrent. If, and it’s a very big if, this type of covert warfare has extended into Europe, then it might explain why Italy has been ravaged by four destructive earthquakes in just three months. And if Italy has been attacked covertly, it probably wouldn’t have been at the behest of the Russians.
