Answers to Quora Questions by Yair Davidiy
Does the nation of Israel have any true friends that would assist in an existential threat?
Based on past histories and present day attitudes, etc, Israel has no allies it can absolutely rely upon. Every single one of its friends is liable to turn against her.
Â Nevertheless, there are some nations that in a theoretical life or death situation might come to the aid of the Jewish State.
Â These are:
The USA. America is a true friend of Israel but there are also anti-Israeli forces present. The chances are however that the USA would not let Israel go under. Neither would Britain.
The UK. Britain is critical of Israel and its Media is prejudiced verging on being anti-Jewish, malicious, and mendacious. Nevertheless, the UK could well intervene on either side but most likely on that of Israel.
Australia and Canada could assist the USA or UK.
France. This is an anti-Semitic nation but it has had moments of empathy with the Jewish people in the past. It could surprise everyone in one direction or other.
Czechia might come out on the side of Israel.
Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland, etc, all could be sympathetic and possibly helpful. On the other hand they might also be hostile. So too, for Portugal and Ireland (unlikely but you never know with them).
Germany is unlikely to help (on the contrary) UNLESS it is politically beneficial for her. The same goes for India.
None of the other nations is likely to help Israel apart from a few small island-nations who have been influenced by American evangelicals. All the other nations are more likely to be against Israel than for her.
The above list is reliable. In my opinion the powers that be in the Jewish world should take note of it. A businessman invests in enterprises where profit is greater and more certain. So too, Israeli "Hasbara" (Explaining i.e. Positive Imparting of Information) should be concentrated where it is more probable to reap benefit in hour of need.
Antagonistic nations that are sometimes mistakenly considered friendly but could be virulently against us include Japan, China, Austria, Turkey, Argentina, Armenia, the Vatican, and others.
