Have the Saudi’s ever directly or indirectly indicated they want to ‘wipe Israel off the map’?
You of all people should know that the Saudis keep their friends close and their enemies even closer.
They probably have. But it was certainly a wink and a nod thing to pander to their street and to preempt criticism from their more radical neighbors. Just like Jordan used to do.
The Saudi royals are businessmen first and foremost. As long as Israel leaves them alone they’ll leave Israel alone. Doing anything else would be bad for business.
As would allowing Iran to have a Persian Gulf Muslim monopoly on nukes. Iran may hate Israel, but it covets the Saudis oil wealth.
Great question! I was just wondering what Israel thought of this since the US Gov. (ObaMao) doesn’t seem to mind. If it is indeed muzzies killing muzzies, then it only helps protect our troops.
