Saudi gave the green light

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on June 12, 2010

Saudi Arabia has practiced standing down its anti-aircraft systems to allow Israeli warplanes passage on their way to attack Iran’s nuclear installations, a British newspaper reported on Saturday.

“The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way,” the Times quoted an unnamed U.S. defense source in the area as saying. “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 U.S. State Department.”

Once the Israelis had passed, the kingdom’s air defenses would return to full alert, the Times said.

Despite tensions between them, Israel and Saudi Arabia share a mutual hostility to Iran.

“We all know this. We will let them [the Israelis] through and see nothing,” the Times quoted a Saudi government source as saying.

Netanyahu’s predecessor, Ehud Olmert, is believed to have held secret meetings with high-ranking Saudi officials over Iran.

According to the report, the four main targets for an Israeli raid on Iran would be uranium enrichment facilities at Natanz and Qom, a gas storage development at Isfahan and a heavy-water reactor at Arak.

Iran will unveil a new advance in its nuclear program in the coming months; the head of its Atomic Energy Organization was quoted as saying on Saturday, in comments that showed defiance in the face of new U.N. sanctions.

“In the next few months Iran will announce a new nuclear achievement in connection to the production of fuel for its Tehran research reactor,” Ali Akbar Salehi was quoted as saying in the Resalat daily. He gave no details.

Today we’re much closer to Armageddon than any day, I believe. Anyhow finally the moment reached that Arab countries find their mutual interest to co-operate with Israel on Iran Issue.

Not for the first time, Ahmadinejad reserved his harshest rhetoric for Israel.

“It is clear the United States is not against nuclear bombs because they have a Zionist regime with nuclear bombs in the region,” he said.

“They are trying to save the Zionist regime, but the Zionist regime will not survive. It is doomed.”
