In the New ME, the US and Israel are the losers

By Ted Belman

With Condileezza Rice focusing the world’s attention on the Arab-Israel conflict and whether to finance an Hamas dominated PA, real change is taking place.

DEBKA reports

Mottaki (Iran) breezed around the Arab delegations hard-selling the notion of a mutual defense treaty between Iran and the Arabs on the lines of the Tehran-Damascus pact. Mottaki argued that a treaty of this kind would allay Arab fears of an Iranian nuclear threat, put a stop to a Middle East nuclear arms race, provide the Arabs with a protective umbrella against Israeli aggression and set up an Arab-Islamic front against US and other foreign intervention in the region.

There is much more in this informative report.

Saturday, March 31, Iran’s chief of staff Gen. Hassan Fayrouz Abadi, prodded the Arabs again; he urged them to hurry up and join Iran in a defense treaty because, he claimed, Israel threatened a war offensive in summer, two months hence. According to the Iranian general, Israel was bent on a “suicide assault” against a number of Arab states to save the Americans from having to pull their troops out of Iraq.

I have argued this many times in the past. The only way for the US to win the war is to expand the war. Similarly for Israel, if they want to be a winner they must go on the offensive and annex Judea and Samaria. Retreat is not an option.

The Saudis and the Iranians have already come to terms over Lebanon and “Palestine”.

The Arabs and Iran are giving notice to the US and Israel that they are strong enough militarily and financially to run the ME and want the US and Israel out. The ball is in the US court. How are they going to maintain their interests? Its a lot more then stabilizing Iraq now. Its how not to be made irrelevant.

The Kurds have also made peace with Iran.

Over the years they have armed the Saudis and the Egyptians to the teeth. They have made themselves irrelevant and the Arabs now feel strong enough to defend their own interests. They have decided to reconcile with Iran for the betterment of all.

The US and Israel are the losers.

Saudi Arabia could nationalize the oil companies even more and what could the US do. Besides the US owes trillions to the Saudis.

My guess is that the United Islamic Front is saying to the US, if you want to be our friends, sacrifice Israel. They don’t need the US, the US needs them.

  1. Don’t believe anything you read and only half of what you see. God is watching very closely, America is being dealt with along with Israel. Economic collapse may be the only thing that will get Americas attention, and God wants to get our attention.
    As for Israel, all eyes are on her now, when she is surrounded by enemies and America can no longer come to her aid militarily then God will act.
    Watch for something big to hit the Dome of the Rock. Gotta get the domolition work done so the Temple can be rebuilt. Gotta do it soon. How about this summer?
    The irony in this is that on the one hand I am instructed to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. On the other hand I find myself shouting, Attack, Attack, don’t wait. But shouting will avail nothing, God will move and when he moves it will be to checkmate.
    Have faith and hope, we have read the book and seen the end of the story. Our side wins and a new era comes to planet earth.

  2. Russia must have an expanded role to play if she is to be coaxed down out of the uttermost parts of the north to take a spoil.
    She will then, make a move against Israel with the whole of the middle east following in her wake and there upon the hills and mountains of Israel she will be destroyed as a nation never to rise again. It must happen. It will happen.
    And America is slow to get in line with the economic plan and take part in the one world government movement. We have too many check writers here and the drive is toward the cashless society. America must be brought down and the simplest way to do it is as our friend LGB has said.

    All these players could easily team up and deal a serious blow to the US, at least a financial blow. They could simply say that they will only accept payment for oil in euros instead of dollars. Central banks all over the world would dump US dollars. Your bank account would be devastated. In fact I think this is coming soon.

    My guess is that the House of Saud received information about the impending US attack on Iran and protection guarantees from Putin on his tour of the area last month. Shortly thereafter Ahmadinejad spent the day in Riyadh. The Russian engineers leave Bushehr. Then the Mecca Accord. The Saudis reclaim Hamas and the Palestinians. Now the British kidnappings. The Saudis cancelling state dinners. Jordan as well. Alliances are changing rapidly. Moscow in; Washington out.

    America is truly over a barrel.

    The only political possibility that gives me short-term hope is that the Muslims can’t agree on anything (except hating Israel) and fight each other constantly. They don’t honor agreements between themselves, certainly not between Shia and Sunni.

    Otherwise, I think Shia and Sunni are in a race to see which can claim Jerusalem for Islam. Neither the Saudis nor the Iranians can allow the other to deliver Jerusalem to Islam. Primacy in Islam is at stake. This is important to the Iranians who have had the Sunni foot on their throat for centuries. On the other hand, the House of Saud just wants to maintain their status quo. They have their paradise on earth with as many houries as they want. Allah’s paradise would have to be pretty spectacular to top what they have in the here-and-now.

    If the ME parties just BELIEVE the Russian report of US attack on Iran to be credible (with only a probability or even possibility), their offensive and defensive measures could spark unintended or inconceivable consequences and ignite an uncontrolled escalation to apocalyptic proportions.

  4. Every generation — and every president it seems — has to learn the hard way about Arab-Muslim perfidy and intransigence. For Bush, who has invested so much in the Bush-Saud personal relationship, it must be an especially bitter pill to swallow. Over the last six years, Bush has done his utmost to accommodate the Saudis by 1) whisking away members of the royal family unfortunate enough to be in the US at the moment the WTC was destroyed, thus rescuing them from almost certain arrest and prosecution — if not lynching; 2) shielding the royal family from public disclosure of their terrorist funding activities by censoring relevant portions of the 9/11 report; 3) consenting to one of his closest advisors acting as defense counsel to the Saudis in the 9/11 lawsuit; 4) turning a blind eye to the funding and operation of the Saudi’s propaganda arm in the US — CAIR; 5) turning a blind eye to the Saudi funding and operation of mosques and madrassas in the US which incite hatred and violence against Jews and Christians; 6) facilitating the entry of Saudi Arabia into the WTO despite their refusal to abandon a boycott against another WTO member — Israel; 7) remitting US taxpayer monies to the Saudis in the form of foreign aid as a reward for — wait for it — their efforts to combat terrorism; 8) ignoring the State Department’s prohibitions on US funding for governments cited as violators of human rights; 9) rubberstamping a visa program to bring 10,000 Saudi students to the US; and 10) accepting the Saudi 2002 eradication plan for Israel.

    Bush has been a perfect lackey and dhimmi for the Saudis and now that they no longer need him, he is being neatly disposed with.
