How “The Enemy Of My Enemy Is My Friend” Makes For Strange Bed-fellows

It never ceases to amaze me how the saying “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” has made for strange bed-fellows in the Islamic world. And, how the main stream media, and many “pundits” in the United States, and the West in general, simply do not understand this concept and phenomenon. In the most recent example of this doctrine, it was reported in today’s Timesonline, from England, that Saudi Arabia has informed Israel (and the United States), that they would open up a corridor across Saudi Arabia to allow Israel to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities.

“The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way,” said a US defence source in the area. “They have already done tests to make sure their own jets aren’t scrambled and no one gets shot down. This has all been done with the agreement of the [US] State Department.”

Sources in Saudi Arabia say it is common knowledge within defence circles in the kingdom that an arrangement is in place if Israel decides to launch the raid. Despite the tension between the two governments, they share a mutual loathing of the regime in Tehran and a common fear of Iran’s nuclear ambitions. “We all know this. We will let them [the Israelis] through and see nothing,” said one.

Of course, this is not new news. I reported on April 10, 2010, that Saudi Arabia had given the “green light” to Israel to attack Iran. The problem, then, was that the Obama administration had blocked the delivery of various precision guided weapons to Israel. Rather than allow them to be delivered to Israel, as promised, those weapons were diverted to Diego Garcia. This misstep by the Obama administration would, essentially, force Israel to use nuclear weapons against the highly fortified Iranian facilities, possibly launched from their fleet of nuclear weapons capable submarines, which they recently purchased from Germany. However, in the last few weeks, these weapons were delivered to Israel according to a report in DebkaFile.

The amazing thing about Saudi Arabia apparently giving Israel permission to overfly the country to attack Iran is that Saudi Arabia does not allow Israeli airlines to overfly the country, because they are afraid that the airlines would “contaminate” the country. (Apparently Jewishness is a disease in the mind of the Saudis.)

But, Saudi Arabia and most of the other Arab, Muslim nations in the Middle East, are afraid of Iran and it’s nuclear weapons, because they know full well that Shite Iran intends to take over control of the Middle East. Of course, now they have a little competition from Turkey, whose Islamist leader Recip Erdogan wants to bring back the Caliphate which Ataturk so wisely disbanded, for the good of the Muslims of the world, in 1924. But, without nuclear weapons, Turkey could only play second fiddle to a nuclear armed Iran.

The next few weeks, or at most, the next few months, will be interesting. And, of course, we are all awaiting the release of 260,000 classified communications between our people in the Middle East and Washington by Wikileaks. These documents will, almost certainly, shed more light on the US involvement in the Middle East than any previously known sources. (And, judging by the urgency with which the Pentagon is trying to block this release, the information may be as damning to Middle East policy and the “war on terror” as the leaked “Climategate” documents were, ultimately exposing the total fraud of “global warming”.
