The Hamas-Russia connection: Only Russia could have provided the cyber-weapons that made the Oct. 7 massacre possible. – JOSEPH FRAGER

The Oct. 7 Hamas massacre will never be forgotten. It has been forever seared on to the heart and soul of every Jew. It is a source of anguish and a guide for generations to come.

There has been little comment, however, on the fact that, just like the Yom Kippur War in 1973 had heavy Russian involvement, so did the slaughter on Oct. 7.

On July 20, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin flew to Iran to strengthen ties between the two countries. On Aug. 16 of this year, Putin held a Zoom conference with Iranian officials to “reaffirm support for further developing bilateral ties in trade, transport, logistics and energy,” as reported by Russian news agency TASS.

One doesn’t have to read between the lines to see that Russia is fully allied with Iran on all fronts. Iran supplies Russia with drones, missiles and oil. Russia shares technology with Iran and gives it military assistance.

The Oct. 7 attack was planned for at least two years. It is not a coincidence that Hamas attacked 50 years after the Yom Kippur War almost to the day. Arab terrorists like to wreak havoc on anniversaries. This has always been their calling card. They chose another Jewish holiday to do their depraved deed.

There will be many conspiracy theories about how Israel was caught flat-footed. Israel will do a very thorough analysis. There are many questions that need to be answered. For example, how did Hamas obtain maps of IDF bases? Where was the IDF for so many hours after the assault began? What were the intelligence failures that led to the infiltration?

I believe Hamas coordinated the Times Square rally held on Oct. 8 knowing full well that they were going to attack on Oct. 7. This is consistent with the fact that reporters from Reuters and AP accompanied the Hamas terrorists on Oct. 7. Hamas coordinated the attack with the disinformation campaign and rallies in the United States and around the world that followed.

The New York Post’s report on American-born tech entrepreneur Neville Roy Singham, who has shelled out over $20 million to the People’s Forum, which organized the Oct. 8th rally, is a strong indication that Hamas was behind it.

Singham is a Marxist who lives in China. He is connected to at least four propaganda news sites that support the Chinese Communist Party. According to The New York Times and quoted in The New York Post, the People’s Forum is calling for “more marches, walkouts, sit-ins and other forms of direct action directed at the political offices, businesses and workplaces that fund, invest and collaborate” with Israel.

The Russian connection to Oct. 7 took the form of the cyber-warfare technology given to the Iranians and Hamas. Hamas’s “blinding plan” to take down Israel’s high tech “iron wall,” neutralizing long-range cameras, sophisticated sensors, multiple alarm systems and remote-control weapons was almost certainly aided by Russia’s cyber expertise. Having spoken to cyber experts, I believe only Russia could have made it happen.

Clearly, we have entered a new age in which cyber is the new tank on the battlefield and the new fighter jet in the sky. Unless America and Israel are one step ahead of the new Axis of Evil in the cyber-warfare sphere, no one is safe.

A week after Azerbaijan seized Nagorno-Karabakh, residents in Armenia exclaves worry whether their hometowns will face a similar fate. Armenia and Azerbaijan have fought two wars over Nagorno-Karabakh, in the nineties and in 2020.

This year, after Azerbaijan’s lightning offensive, Baku took total control of the region that lies within its borders. Up until a few months ago, it was dominated by ethnic Armenians. Now, most residents have fled to Armenia. After the second Karabakh War, which ended with an agreement facilitated by Russia, Armenia agreed to allow a land connection between Azerbaijan and Nakhichevan.

While Azerbaijan and Russia claim that the road was meant to be outside of Armenia’s control, overseen by the Russian Federal Security Service, or FSB, Armenia rejects this interpretation. In Yerevan’s view, the agreement was made at the time when Azerbaijan was blocking Armenia’s only land connection to Nagorno-Karabakh and was meant as part of mutual concessions. But as Azerbaijan began a nine-month blockade of the area in December 2022, effectively cutting ethnic Armenians off the outside world, and eventually recapturing the area, Armenia does not feel obliged to meet its part of the agreement.

That is despite Azerbaijan’s claim that it can only benefit from the deal. “Armenia will be able to benefit from the developing trade in the region and all trade projects that are likely to be realised in the future,” Kanan Heydarov, a political analyst from Azerbaijan said.

“It will be able to make great economic gains. As it is known, Armenia has not been able to benefit from many big trade projects developed in the region so far.” In recent years, Azerbaijan’s president, Ilham Aliyev, began to refer to Armenia as “Western Azerbaijan”. He also started calling for the creation of the “Zangezur Corridor”, a highway linking Azerbaijan with Nakhichevan along the former Soviet rail track. “The Zangezur Corridor is a historical necessity,” Aliyev said last January adding that it will be created whether Armenia wants it or not.

Earlier, in 2021, the President threatened to establish it by force. Following Azerbaijan’s victory over Nagorno-Karabakh, which led to an almost full exodus of its Armenian population, locals—and some experts—fear that Azerbaijan might bring its plan to life by force.
