The saying is really true, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Never has that been more evident that the Saudi’s and Israel. Such is the case with Saudi Arabia who has cleared the way to allow Israel to use it’s air space if necessary to attack Iran’s nuclear sites.
Saudi Arabia has conducted tests to stand down its air defences to enable Israeli jets to make a bombing raid on Iran’s nuclear facilities, The Times can reveal.
In the week that the UN Security Council imposed a new round of sanctions on Tehran, defence sources in the Gulf say that Riyadh has agreed to allow Israel to use a narrow corridor of its airspace in the north of the country to shorten the distance for a bombing run on Iran.
To ensure the Israeli bombers pass unmolested, Riyadh has carried out tests to make certain its own jets are not scrambled and missile defence systems not activated. Once the Israelis are through, the kingdom’s air defences will return to full alert.
“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.”
Weasel Zippers asks the all important question, “… but how will they get around the Anti-Semite in Chief?” Because we all know that Iran only uses it’s nuclear capabilities for energy production and the Obama Administration is only interested in further weak UN sanctions against Iran that furthers to enable them as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad laughs himself silly as he called the sanctions “worthless” and said they belonged “in a trash bin.”
