"I think Israel was at war with Russia for 50 years."

"No one can dispute the obvious: the USSR 'orchestrated' that war. (Six Day War) The USSR was prepared for an invasion of Israel. The confessions of our own officers prove this."

In 1973 Yom Kippur War the Arab forces were largely dependent on Russian weaponry. Another try "for an invasion of Israel" was uncovered by IDF in Saida, Lebanon in 1982. No wonder the Jews have become wary of the doings of the Russians.
