Today on Israeli Army Radio, the Israeli government admitted a deep dark secret which many of us have suspected:
From Haaretz today:
Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Sunday that Israel has had covert contacts with Saudi Arabia amid common concerns over Iran, a first disclosure by a senior Israeli official of such contacts.
In an interview on Army Radio, Steinitz was asked why Israel was hiding its ties with Saudi Arabia, which does not have diplomatic ties with Israel.
Steinitz replied: ”We have ties that are indeed partly covert with many Muslim and Arab countries, and usually (we are) the party that is not ashamed.
“It’s the other side that is interested in keeping the ties quiet. With us, usually, there is no problem, but we respect the other side’s wish, when ties are developing, whether it’s with Saudi Arabia or with other Arab countries or other Muslim countries, and there is much more … (but) we keep it secret.”
Excuse me? So the so-called conspiracy theorists (of which I have been accused of being a member of) are now validated when we see Israel betraying its population to engage in activities which have NOTHING to do with its national security in order to enhance “their” version of Middle East stability?
Why is this important?
In southwestern Syria earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army, a highly fragmented but now more stable force than four years ago, succeeded in an offensive maneuver to remove elements of Al-Qaeda and/or ISIS terrorist forces from the Golan Heights region bordering Israel Defense Force controlled territory. Their reward for killing actual terrorists?
From Al-Masdar and numerous other news sources in the region:
BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Israeli military once again targeted the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near the occupied Golan Heights.
According to a report from the Syrian military, an Israeli tank fired two rounds towards the army’s positions in the Qasr Al-Naqr area.
The report added that the tank rounds hit an empty area.
This latest attack by the Israeli military marks the second time this month that their forces have targeted the Syrian Arab Army in the Al-Quneitra Governorate.
In other words, today is an expansion on the attacks on the SAA (Syrian Arab Army) when they engage actual terrorists which are involved and engaged to create a conflict between the Syrian government and Israel. Why is this important?
Israel has to be acting as an agent for Saudi Arabia which has neither the military resources nor alliances (aka, Jordan) which will engage Syria or Russia to invade Lebanon to eject pro-Iranian forces currently in control. Henceforth this sadly expands and validates a “theory” into becoming fact that the United States either supports or ignores actions which are designed to support or defend ISIS and Al Qaeda fighters in Syria for Saudi and our own globalist purposes.
The Syrian government, nor Hezbollah is no match for Israel hence the question has to be asked:
Why is Israel acting on the behest of the Gulf States, especially Saudi Arabia, unless there is a promise to guarantee a steady supply of Israeli natural gas from the Mediterranean to Europe in cooperation with the Saudi plans for a pipeline from the Gulf region?
The answer is obvious.
I am a strong supporter of the state of Israel. However, when they engage as mercenaries on the behest of the Saudi Kingdom, as America has done (and still does), I wonder if their nation has fallen into the Kissinger Trap, which entangles all major powers into a globalist cabal which destabilizes, rather than enhances regional security.
