Saudi-Israeli cooperation 2: the great coming out

A few weeks ago we published an article about the secret alliance between Saudi Arabia and Israel, based on which the two countries that otherwise refuse to officially recognize each other seamlessly cooperate in destabilizing the Middle East. The formerly secret cooperation has been unveiled since then: at a symposium organized by the ultraliberal research institute Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in Washington on 4th June, certain distinguished speakers revealed some long-suspected facts. Although the root causes and the circumstances of immigration are discussed in the Hungarian press on a daily basis, Saudi Arabia's and Israel's admission that they are ready to trigger some further conflicts has not been newsworthy enough for our domestic media. The purpose of this article is to fill in those gaps.

A few weeks ago, a highly powerful duo held a presentation at a CFR event. The speakers were Anvar Eshki, a retired general of the Saudi army; ex-adviser to the prince in charge of the Saudi secret service and owner of a Jidda-based strategic think-tank as well as Dore Gold, a former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, who has close relations with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and who is slotted to be the next director-general of Israel's foreign ministry. They talked about how they wish to show down with Iran and Turkey in the Middle East.

They refuse to recognize each other, yet they have a common agenda

Although Saudi Arabia is one of the world's most fundamentalist states based on hard-line religious dogma, which refuses to officially recognize Israel's right to exist, it has an excellent cooperation with it: as Gold put it after the speech, they are "both allies of the US." This fact seems to overrule a lot of things.
Since the beginning of 2014, representatives from Israel and Saudi Arabia have had five secret meetings in different countries to discuss their common goals. As a result, they formulated a seven-point plan, which even includes the creation of a new state!

Great Kurdistan in the making?

The Saudi-Israeli plan could hardly be called moderate since it includes such moves as creating a new state (what about the principle of unalterable borders?) and regime change as well. Not in their own countries, of course.

The seven points are as follows: achieve an Arab-Israeli peace, change the regime in Iran, establish a joint Arab army, create an independent Kurdistan on a territory cut out from Turkey, Iran and Iraq, join the efforts of Gulf states, achieve peace in Yemen and promote democratic movements in the Arab world.

Those following the news of recent years may suspect what the implementation of these plans would actually entail. It is obvious that an Arab-Israeli peace cannot be currently achieved without the betrayal of the Palestinian cause as Israel keeps Palestinian territories occupied.

The idea of toying with other nations' lands is not quite far from the minds that conceived of this plan. Even though several European communities continue to live in countries that are strange for them as the borders are supposed to be unchangeable, Israel and Saudi Arabia, driven by their fear of Ankara and Tehran, would be ready to redraw Turkey's and Iran's borders in order to establish Kurdistan, a vassal state to their liking.

The "democratic movements" to be supported by Riyadh and Tel-Aviv have proven their value several times over. These movements led to Syria's and Libya's decline into a pile of ruins and the playground for ISIS, driving millions of refugees to Europe. The fact that these are not just random consequences is clearly demonstrated by the case of Egypt, where the democratic movements, instead of reducing the country to chaos, happened to lead to the rise of a new government Israel and Saudi Arabia did not like. The event was soon followed by a coup, and the democratically elected Islamist leader was sentenced to death. Let me note that if they are so fond of democracy, Saudi Arabia might as well try it for once...

Newsworthy everywhere except Hungary

Although not in the headlines, but the Washington meeting of June 4 was covered by numerous media outlets. Articles were published in the New York Times, Russia Today, and such acclaimed Turkish papers as Sabah, for example. However, Hungarian mainstream media failed to take notice, even though it is an extremely hot issue: if these two countries, driven by their fear of Iran, trigger an even greater conflict, millions of refugees and perhaps some more terrorist organizations will be released into Europe. You have been warned...
