"Though on opposing sides of the Syrian conflict, Netanyahu and Putin agree on a lot."
Vladimir Putin expressed Russia's strong support for the Syrian army against ISIS at the UN General Assembly this week as Israel launched three missiles at the outposts of that very same army. Israel is definitely not intimidated by Russia's military presence in Syria. However, the emergency meeting between Putin and Israel's Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, has "put Israeli minds at ease" since Russia has agreed not to jeopardize Israeli's strategic interests in Russia, and Israel has agreed to not help those who try to jeopardize Russia-Syria relations.
Israel is largely benefitting from its agreement to not sell arms to either of Putin's neighboring Rivals, Ukraine and Georgia, as well as the drone technology they have supplied Russia with. Although Russia has continued supplying Israel's enemies with weapons, they haven't supplied Iran advanced systems, much to Israel's satisfaction.
Israel has been diversifying its alliances, which includes Putin as well as leaders of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, India, and Japan. Although Netanyahu has a shaky relationship with Obama, America's decreasing influence over the middle east is going to benefit Israel anyway.
