Saudis Cozying Up to Israeli Regime, Official Ties Imminent

Saudis Cozying Up to Israeli Regime, Official Ties Imminent

Alwaght- The Saudi Foreign Minister has once again hinted at rapprochement between Arabs and Israel echoing remarks by the regime’s premier Benjamin Netanyahu.

In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday, Saudi foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir pointed to the so-called Palestinian-Israeli conflict, describing it as “the most protracted conflict in our region" of which "nothing can justify continuation”.

The cozying up of Saudi Arabia to the Israeli regime comes amid reports that Saudi-ally Bahrain could officially establish relations with the Israeli regime by next year.

According to said Doha and Tel Aviv are already working to set up exchange visits of businessmen and religious figures, and even of ministers.

Earlier this week, Israeli newspapers quoted a prominent rabbi who met with Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa as saying that the king told him he opposed the Arab states’ boycott of Israel and intended to allow citizens from his kingdom to visit occupied Palestinian territories.

Speaking earlier this year, Israeli regime’s transportation minister called on Saudi Arabia's King Salman to invite Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Riyadh to establish full diplomatic relations.

Speaking at the Herzliya conference, Yisrael Katz also asked King Salman to send newly appointed crown prince Mohammed bin Salman to Tel Aviv after describing shared interest in countering Iran.

In other remarks earlier this month, Netanyahu said that cooperation between Israel and the Arab states had never been closer.

Al-Jubeir’s visit to Tel Aviv and AIPAC ties

Last year, there were reports of Saudi foreign minister’s secret visit to Tel Aviv to meet accompanied by a senior Saudi intelligence official.

Al-Jubeir, who served as the Saudi Ambassador to the US from 2007 to 2015, reportedly established close ties with infamous US-based Zionist lobby organization (AIPAC) which he still maintains.

In what appears to be a follow up of al-Jubeir’s visit, Zionist media outlets reported early this month that, an unidentified Saudi prince conducted a secret visit to Israel in a bid to reportedly restart the stalled Arab-Israeli peace process..

“A prince of the Saudi Royal Court paid a secret visit to the country in recent days to discuss ideas for advancing regional peace with senior Israeli officials,” the Israeli Radio reported.

Egypt and Jordan, both Saudi allies, with whom the Israeli regime signed agreements in 1979 and 1994 respectively, are currently the only two Arab states to have official relations with the Tel Aviv regime.

Bahrain testing the waters for official Saudi-Israeli ties

The decision by Bahrain, a Saudi protégé, establish official ties with the Israeli regime is certainly being done with close coordination and approval of Riyadh. The Saudi are using Bahrain to gauge public opinion on ties with the Israeli regime and project the move as normal before Riyadh also formally makes such a move.

The establishment of ties between Israeli regime and Persian Gulf monarchies is a policy being pushed by US President Donald Trump and his visit to Riyadh and then straight flight to Tel Aviv in May this year was within actualizing that approach.

Bin Salman wants to change anti-Israeli mindset

Meanwhile, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman is working to “westernize” the Kingdom and change people’s mindsets when it comes to Israel, Twitter whistleblower Mujtahidd reported last week.

The account, which is believed to be reporting from inside the ruling family in Saudi Arabia, wrote: “Arrangement among the UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain is wider than our expectations. Israel and American bodies linked to Trump are involved.”

“The plan is complete. It is based on unifying the bases of security, media, culture and education, including religion, in Egypt and all the Persian Gulf States except Oman.”

The plan, according to Mujtahid, was drawn in Egypt which is the “supplier of cadres who will deal with the issues of media, security, Islamic movements, education syllabuses and religious institutions.”

According to Mujtahidd, it aims to “distance any political, cultural, educational, financial, religious effect on the people of Egypt and the Persian Gulf States in order to reach a state of full and eternal normalization with Israel.”

Arab states and especially Saudi Arabia is warming up to the Israeli regime at the expense of Palestinians who are struggling to liberate their lands, particularly the al-Aqsa Mosque-the third holiest site in Islam, currently under the occupation of the Israelis.
