Dear David,

My Demographic curiously was not a part of my argument; I did not intend to use your Origin as a part of my argument. In Elections, for example, Demographics are important, if you are running for office. So I cannot even use you for a projection of your views. The other day, by the way, i met an American Jew who told me that most Russian Israelis are not really Jews, that their heart really isn't for Israel, they just what to escape the Soviet Union. I am curious what you think about that, and what you think about the current effort to reform Israeli's Conversion Law?

Regarding President Trump, I completely disagree with your analysis, but I don't think I can persuade you to change your mind. All I can say, that may be useful, is that Dr. Daniel Pipes completely changed his mind about Trump - when he realised how Co0nservative and Pro-Israel Trump was; however, I thing Dr. Pipes still doesn't like Trump on a personal level, regarding Trumps way of Speaking.

I am sorry if I offended you by appearing that I was using an Ad Hominum Argument against you.

However, I am curious what kind of Russian Israeli you are. Are Secular? Are you now one of the Extended Jews defined by the latest law or rule for Statistics? Don't worry, I will not dislike you even if you are 100%. By the way, I think it is very good for Israel that Putin is in Syria because he is competing with Iran for a say over (quasi) Shia Syrian government and Minority; also, by having Russian support in Shia controlled Syria, Putin is making Sunni Arabs and Muslims move closer to Israel. Furthermore, Put expressed his belief publicly (how true it is I don't wish to discuss) that 1,000,000 Israelis are Russians! That means that Israeli Jews like yourself can quite easily do Business with Russia and bring Russia closer to the West through Business and Entrepreneurship. Putin is not going to live forever. And just as Stalin was not succeeded by anyone as Autocratic as he was, I hypothesize that "Christian" Russia wil change for the better after Putin. By the way, I read recently that Russia's is about the size of that of (small) New York State, even though Russia spans 11 Time Zones, etc. So Russian Israelis, within Start-Up Israel are in a great position to benefit Israel, Russia, and the EU. Are there Israeli Entrepreneurs doing significant Business with Russian Oligarch Close to Putin? Don't you see a Golden Opportunity here? Can someone like you encourage Palestinians to resettle in (Greater) Syria and help Re-Build it to the benefit of Syria, Russia, and Israel, and therefore the West?

Have you not heard about Color Revolutions? These do bring change, but not immediate Democracy. Put is afraid of them; but he cannot stop them; some time, maybe after Putin, there may even be a successful Color Revolution in Russia. I am, by the way, a follower of (Russian) Pussy Riot; what do you thi9nk of this Russian Feminist group? What do you thing of one of its leaders, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova?
