Putin and Obama both ignored Israel's conflict with Palestine in their speeches to the UN General Assembly, Israeli political figure Avigdor Eskin told Radio Sputnik.
"Now everyone in Israel can notice that Russian President Putin and US President Obama, not one of them even said a word about the Israeli local conflict with Palestinians," Eskin said.
Eskin added that this could be because the refugee crisis has eclipsed the Israel-Palestine conflict, as the refugee crisis and the conflict in Syria has overtaken that issue in scale. Putin has also become "number one" in Israeli media, according to Eskin, because of his speech.
"If Russia takes this part under control, then we can expect good developments because at the end of the day, most of Israeli experts and politicians, and also military and intelligence people agree that we should be rather happy that Assad stays in power," Eskin added.
Eskin also said that it look like Americans would interfere less and less in the Middle East as well as Ukraine, adding praise for US Republican Party presidential nomination candidate Donald Trump.
