    Not only rebranding a product is in play in Israel . Israel rebrands the process as well. Israel engages in the re-application of blackmailing as the cornerstone of the diplomacy .Then it valorizes and celebrates those sordid saga Before,It sells it opens a market with contacts and insider information. Be it US ,be it Russia .
    What is happening in Ukraine is the devious attempts by Neocons to create a rift between Russia and Obama over Syria and over Iran and drag EU further in an inescapable situation . This is not new. It has done it before.
    Here is Jerusalem Post- —

    “Media reports indicate that Iran has long sought to purchase the S-300 from Russia but has faced pressure from the US and Israel against the sale.

    Russian officials told Amos Gilad in 2009, then head of the political-military bureau in the Defense Ministry, that the missiles to Iran would not be delivered for political reasons.

    In the end, Russia scrapped the sale in 2010, and in what may have been a quid pro quo, Israel agreed to sell Russia surveillance drones that would narrow its technological military gap with Georgia.” Jerusalem
    . Jost fails to inform that Georgian crisis was not a sudden development. Neocons who had only the interest of Israel had their fingerprints all over that fiasco.To corner Russia ,they would engage in a process ,that they would repeat in 2013 – 2014 the same stupidities . Rebranding is at work here again . It is about democracy.
    But the ” technological gap” ? Did Russia need it ? Or was the need reinvented and imposed on Russia ?
    Israel used to supply materials and training to both Tamilfighters and Sri Lanka. It was exposed by Telegraph selling weapons to Pakistan, it is not supposed to sell as per Indian understanding.
    Supplying both sides are its hallmark . But creating a fissure between two countries ,to force them to support a war for Israel that neither wants is also a rebranding of its own image as protector of the west . Rebranding happens down in future .
    The preemptive attack on Osiris Reactor in Iraq was rebranded after almost 20 yrs . The rebranding went well in sales of new wars in Middle East from 2003.
    Israel rebrands does not stop anywhere . There is no moral post that signals it to do so. This is why it ‘s sales pitch in 1900 to Britain and to Europe as a wall against third world countries or as a vehicle to preserve European interest are rebranded by Zionist as a fight against western colonialism since the new customers of its perfidy in the east would understand that logo better.
