TEHRAN – An American scholar and political commentator said Russia might defend Iran if Israel launched a military attack against the Islamic Republic over its support for Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement.
Russia cannot afford to have Syria fall to Saudi Arabia and Israel , which is the ultimate game plan. If Israel uses Iranian support of Hezbollah as a pretext for attacking Iran , then Russia becomes the decisive player, with the ability to destroy Israeli missiles launched against Iran , which Russia can destroy in flight or even redirect against the nation that fired them.
This scenario could rapidly escalate to a world war in which Israel itself is turned into a gigantic sheet of glass,” James Henry Fetzer told Tasnim.
