Israel is ready to share intelligence on Iran with Saudi Arabia – IDF chief


The chief of staff of Israel’s military (IDF) told Saudi Alaf newspaper in an unprecedented interview that his country is ready to share intelligence on Iran with Riyadh.

With President Donald Trump, there is an opportunity for a new international alliance in the region and a major strategic plan to stop the Iranian threat,” Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, chief of staff of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) told the paper. “We are ready to exchange experiences with moderate Arab countries and exchange intelligence to confront Iran.” 

When asked whether Israel has recently share intelligence with Saudi Arabia, Eisenkot responded by saying: “We are ready to share information if necessary. There are many common interests between us…”

He also said that Iran is the “biggest threat to the region,” Haaretz reported. He said that Tel Aviv and Riyadh are in full agreement about Iran’s intentions, noting that Israel and Saudi Arabia have never fought each other.

Eisenkot also said that Israel’s security situation has never been better than it is today, claiming that is why “we are highly regarded by the moderate countries in the region.” He went on to accuse Tehran of trying to destabilize the region by building weapons factories and supplying advanced arms to terrorist groups throughout the Middle East.

Iran seeks to take control of the Middle East, creating a Shi’ite crescent from Lebanon to Iran, and then from the Gulf to the Red Sea,” Eisenkot said, when asked about Iran’s intended goal. “We must prevent this from happening.”

The IDF chief also stressed that Israel has no intention of launching an attack on Hezbollah in Lebanon. “We see Iranian attempts at bringing about an escalation, but I don’t see a high chance for this at the moment,” he said.

Eisenkot’s interview marks the first time that an Israeli chief of staff has been interviewed by a media outlet in Saudi Arabia. The two countries do not have diplomatic ties with one another. Eisenkot’s remarks come despite the IDF chief saying in August 2015 that Iran was not the biggest threat to Israel. Instead, he said that Hezbollah and Hamas were the most immediate threats to Israeli security.

  1. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is described by the head of IDF Intelligence as a “Moderate” country. Where does that put israel on the scale of “Moderation”? Does this mean that the KSA just moderately carries out mass torture and beheadings, instead of indiscriminately bombing whole suburbs and residential housing containing families or shooting down stone throwing children in the streets? No, I forgot that the KSA bombs Innocents in Yemen but, in Moderation, at least they are apparently not nuclear armed and with a Samson Plan, so far.

    This immediately calls to mind the “Moderate Opposition” that was financed by the USA to the tune of hundreds of millions of USA taxpayer dollars. A US General appeared at a Congressional Hearing to state that SIX of that Moderate Opposition HAD NOT defected to the so-called ISIS – popularly known as the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service.

    The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Israel are both Creatures of MI6, which is in turn traditionally beholden to the City of London. AIPAC runs the USA through a combination of Jewish Money Power and the Oxmoronically Named Judeo-Christianity. I don’t know how many heads that the creature of the Apocalypse has, but this lot are in line for the job and they have it well in hand so far. They have form and the Nihilistic Philosophy to guide them is well entrenched.

  2. Mecca, Rome, and Jerusalem are triplets with 3 different fathers , but one mother. The Saudi’s have been useful rentals for covert ops for many decades. How’s that Catholic money for 9/11 truth coming ?
    Shyster, Shady, and Shadow, ….and the 3 bedroom house built of straw.

  3. Two plus decades over this one scam, these two love birds are so deserving of each other. Iran and it’s allies can get a buy get one deal.

  4. Israel and Saudi Arabia are the world’s most degenerate abomiNations and nobody should care what they say, because they’re proven psychopaths. It should surprise no one that these are Murica’s only friends in the Middle East, because America’s elite are equally psychotic. Israel is worried about failing in its endeavour to subjugate the land between the Nile and Euphrates, while Saudi Arabia is afraid to lose it’s terrible influence. Murcia decides what it does based on who pays the most. Since the Israel Lobby sponsors (bribes) the congress and the president, the USG will send US soldiers to die in Israel’s wars and US taxpayers will foot the bill, which is owed to the Israeli dual citizen owned and operated federal reserve. Iran poses no threat to America, but neither did Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, etc, etc..So again, Israel will cook up lies, the American government will support and perpetuate these lies, which will be used as a pretext to do israels dirty work.
