Good job, Hillary!

At least the Administration isn't trying to interfere with reality entirely...or at least they've kept quiet.

Nice! That probably will keep the Mullahs awake at night more than any sanctions.

Saudi Prince Turki bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud has warned the country’s royal family to step down and flee before a military coup or a popular uprising overthrows the kingdom.

In a letter published by Wagze news agency on Tuesday, the Cairo-based prince warned Saudi Arabia’s ruling family of a fate similar to that of Iraq’s executed dictator Saddam Hussein and the ousted Iranian Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, calling on them to escape before people “cut off our heads in streets.”

Wow,
I guess that would save Israel having to deal with Jordan or Iraq for fly over permission. They just have a very narrow window near Elat where they would get close to Jordan, but other than that, smooth flying to Iran.

There are people who actually believe this story?

That the Saudis, even if they were with this scheme, would allow it to be leaked?

Nope, this is a preemptive story to prevent the Saudis, and anyone else, from even thinking about helping Israel to snuff out the threat to the Saudis from a different faction of Islam in Iran.

Good News.

The Saudis are doing something for Israel that neither the Obama or Bush Administrations would permit and that is to grant fly over rights of Iraq to the Israelis.

Exactly. I think I read a story some time ago that Bush Sr had a deal with the Saudi’s in the lead-up to the first gulf war but the deal was contingent on the Bush administration not letting the cat out of the bag until after the invasion.

Not to sound stupid but isn’t this like getting Canada’s approval to use their air space so we can bomb Venezuela?

Wouldn’t flying to Saudi on the way to Iran be, like, flying the wrong way?

More likely a Shite vs Sunni situation ... as in the Iraq vs Iran war (about 15 years ago) and numerous other Shite/Sunni skirmishes over preceding centuries.

Hmm... reminds me of the old quote from Prince Bandar: "We are the only country in the world where the government is avant garde and the people are more conservative."

Not anymore, Prince.

Nevertheless this permission should have been kept SECRET because now the whole world will condemn Saudis for war mongering.

Saudi Arabia is scared to death of Iran and has been preparing for decades for a worst case scenario.

Incorrect. The Saudis have been in contact with Israel on this subject since about 1980.

Either that... or, now Iran is breathing a sigh of relief, since their pre-emptive making public a false story of Saudi help for Israel effectively makes it impossible.

The Saudi royal family has been very skilled at playing the game for a long time, and individual stories like this are just parts of it all. If the time comes, that’s when any real decision will be made...they always keep their options open.

Israel and SA just voted on the new sanctions. I guess they don’t have much faith in them.

Perhaps Israel had an arrangement with Turkey that was chucked under the Flotilla.

Saudi Arabia would be the obvious choice after Jordan.
