Did Money Seal Israeli-Saudi Alliance?

Israel and Saudi Arabia secret dealings behind the Arab and Muslim World
Israel and Saudi Arabia secret dealings behind the Arab and Muslim World

Special Report: The odd-couple relationship between Saudi Arabia and Israel may have been sealed with more than a mutual desire to kiss-off Iran. According to an intelligence source, there was a dowry involved, too, with the Saudis reportedly giving Israel some $16 billion, writes Robert Parry.

For more than half a century, Saudi Arabia has tried to use its vast oil wealth to build a lobby in the United States that could rival the imposing Israel Lobby. At top dollar, the Saudis hired law firms and PR specialists – and exploited personal connections to powerful families like the Bushes – but the Saudis never could build the kind of grassroots political organization that has given Israel and its American backers such extraordinary clout.

Indeed, Americans who did take Saudi money – including academic institutions and non-governmental organizations – were often pilloried as tools of the Arabs, with the Israel Lobby and its propagandists raising the political cost of accepting Saudi largesse so high that many people and institutions shied away.  Read the rest of the story here:

  1. So, Saudi Arabia tried to build up a similar powerful lobby in the US as Turkey already has and above all, Israel. Without any information like this from Mr. Parry I would have logically guessed that Israel woudn’t offer military and logistic support in the this attac on Yemen to the Saudi’s, if it would not gain directly. No surprise here in general, but in special over the huge amount of bribery money.

    This again tells me a lot about the real Saudi Arabia. It’s in its last and most dangerous fight and it will loose. This “state” is such an anachronism from ground up and right from the beginning, that sometimes I wonder how it could exist that long.

    One thought I would mention, call it a question: Could it be, that what we see is a mere military exersize for a later really big attac on Iran? Could it be that Russia’s voting in the security council of the UN had something to do with this? The Saudi’s were very thankful for this russian gift and already said so. We live in strange times.

  2. Mr. Duff,

     The Zionists will kill their mothers for money, let alone 16 Billion.
     To Mess-Up Iran Deal, so our Troops Fight their War with their Imaginary Enemy Iran &
    Destroy USA in the process___ Israel will do that for FREE!

  3. It is a gay patriarchal marriage made in heaven. Unlimited funds controlled by a few linked with a religion based in blood and exclusivity. Examine the differences between a skull cap and feathers. Test the product.

    • That’s one product I definitely don’t want to test! I hope America doesn’t shed the blood of it’s youth… or more blood of it’s youth for the evil Zio-Con campaign for global domination which will inevitably destroy America.
      I’d also suggest that the Saudi’s and Zionists have been working together for a long time already on the financial and business side of things, who do you think the Saudi’s invest their petrol-dollars through and with? (and no the US doesn’t have Hawala stock exchanges or merchant bankers) – Murdoch’s Newscorp even has Saudi’s on the board of directors.
