A senior member of Israel’s ruling Likud Party appeared on the Russian government’s English-language mouthpiece RT (formerly Russia Today) and threatened Moscow over its support for Hamas and the enemies of the Jewish state.
Amir Weitmann is the head of the Likud’s libertarian caucus and reportedly a close confidante of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
In his interview on RT, Weitmann did not mince words.
“I understand you are on the Russian payroll and that this is Russian propaganda, but you have to be very careful,” Weitmann began. “Because let me tell you, we are going to finish this war. We are going to win because we are strong. And after this, Russia will pay the price. Believe me, Russia will pay.”
The incredulous anchor shot back: “Russia will pay?!”
Weitmann went on to explain why and how:
“Russia is supporting the enemies of Israel. Russia is supporting Nazi people who want to commit genocide on us and Russia will pay the price. We’re gonna win this war. Afterwards, we’re not forgetting what you’re doing, we’re not forgetting, we will come, we will make sure Ukraine wins. We will make sure that you pay the price for what you have done, you as Russia.”
