Gulf States fear Iran, buildup arms, wink at Israel
The US is arming the Gulf States, particularly Saudi Arabia, to the teeth. Reassurance.
Some interesting notes here:
- “The Times has reported that Saudi Arabia has tested the ability to stand down their air defenses to allow an Israeli strike on Iran to pass through their airspace.Both nations have denied this.” I don’t think this is very likely. Saudi Arabia would likely bare the brunt of the Iranian response. Although, Israel would like to make Iran think an attack could originate from SA.
- “In 2011, Israel approved a German sale of 200 Leopard tanks to Saudi Arabia.” Israel apparently not worried these arms won’t be turned upon them at some point. SA is a Psalm 83 player but to what extent we do not know.
While Iran has launched a “charm offensive” in an attempt to restore contacts with the West, Israel and Saudi Arabia, who don’t have diplomatic relations, are rumored to be creating an alliance, which may well become the region’s new “super power.”
There is nothing in the Bible about Israel entering into an alliance with anybody. As far as prophecy goes, Israel is alone. You can argue the US, but certainly not any Muslim state. This is probably Israeli disinformation. The article actually mentions that “Israel brings to the party excellent propaganda skills”.
