Saudi Prince: ‘..threat is from (Iran), not.. Israel’

“The Sunnis will love it (Israeli strike on Iran). The Sunni Muslim is very much anti-Shiite, and very much anti-, anti-, anti-Iran… Publicly, they (Arab states) would be against it. Privately, they would love it.” – Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal

Alwaleed bin Talal: Not happy with Obama.

Alwaleed bin Talal: Not happy with Obama.

The Saudis are worried; they’re worried about Barack Obama’s sanctions strategy with Iran. This is reflected in the words of Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who sat down with Bloomberg’s Jeffrey Goldberg this week:

“There’s no confidence in the Obama administration doing the right thing with Iran,” he told me, with a directness that would make Benjamin Netanyahu blush. “We’re really concerned — Israel, Saudi Arabia, the Middle East countries — about this.”

It is quite something for a Saudi royal to state baldly that his country is part of a tacit alliance with Israel, but Saudi leaders, like Israel’s leaders, are frantic with worry that an overeager Obama will accede to Iran’s desire to become a threshold state, one whose nuclear program is so advanced that it would only need several weeks to assemble a deliverable weapon. Alwaleed, like Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, believes that Iran, in its ongoing negotiations with the world’s major powers, will pocket whatever sanctions relief it gets without committing to ending its nuclear program. “Why are they offering relief?” he asked. “Keep the pressure on. Sanctions are what brought about the negotiations to begin with! Why not keep the pressure up?”

Obama, Alwaleed says, is a man who is in desperate political straits and needs a victory — any victory — to right his presidency. “Obama is in so much of a rush to have a deal with Iran,” he said. “He wants anything. He’s so wounded. It’s very scary. Look, the 2014 elections are going to begin. Within two months they’re going to start campaigning. Thirty-nine members of his own party in the House have already moved away from him on Obamacare. That’s scary for him.” {emphasis ours}

The Saudis, who broke off diplomatic ties with the U.S. in the wake of the Obama administration’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood over al-Sisi in Egypt as well as the decision not to attack Syria, are likely more concerned about Obama’s policy with Iran than his support for the Brotherhood in Egypt or restraint in Syria. As Goldberg points out, Alwaleed may not be part of the Saudi Government but he is respected enough by the Royal family to practically speak on its behalf.

Alwaleed also said something to Goldberg that has been obvious to us here for quite a while:

“Look, Iran is a huge threat, historically speaking,” he said. “The Persian empire was always against the Muslim Arab empire, especially against the Sunnis. The threat is from Persia, not from Israel. This was a great empire ruling the whole neighborhood. I’ll tell you something — they are in Bahrain, they are in Iraq, they are in Syria, they are with Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas, which is Sunni, in Gaza. They are intruding into these areas. King Abdullah of Jordan had a good statement on this — he said that a Shiite crescent begins from Iran, through Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and goes down to Palestine, to Hamas.”

It’s important to remember that at the end of the day, the Muslim Brotherhood seeks the removal of the House of Saud. There is great contempt for the Saudis on the part of the Brotherhood despite the latter being the beneficiary of ungodly amounts of Saudi money. That does not mean the Brotherhood won’t turn on the source of that money; it will. The Saudis have funded the Brotherhood for at least two reasons.

  1. It allows the spread of Islam in non-Muslim lands.
  2. It keeps the Brotherhood occupied in areas outside Saudi Arabia (like throwing red meat to a tiger).

Now ask yourselves a question: Of all Muslims who have infiltrated the U.S. Government, which group has acquired the greatest amount of power and influence within the political system? Answer: The Muslim Brotherhood. It’s members are all through the U.S. Government. Saudis are not. They may have provided the Brotherhood with the means but make no mistake; the Brotherhood is anything but loyal to the Saudis.

As we wrote previously, every Obama administration policy as supported the Muslim Brotherhood. In Egypt, the decision not to support al-Sisi after Mursi’s overthrow is beyond transparent. In Syria, the decision not to attack Assad likely had more to do with the overwhelming public opinion against such an attack. It’s true that Obama has demonstrated little to no regard for the will of the people but the opposition to a strike in Syria was such that it would have made a lopsided poll blush.

Now, with Obama choosing not to act in Syria, which is a government supported by Iran, coupled with his warming up to Iran via lifting sanctions, how can this all be perceived as a pro-Muslim Brotherhood position?

Here are two things that can be determined with a reasonable degree of certainty:

  1. The Brotherhood seeks to overthrow the Saudi Royal family.
  2. Barack Obama despises Israel.

Based on those two realities, what two countries does a nuclear Iran put in the most danger?

Israel despised.

Israel despised.

Answer: Israel and Saudi Arabia.

If one accepts the premise that the Brotherhood ultimately wants to defeat the Saudis, would it not consider doing so via Iran if it could?

Earlier this week, Alwaleed spoke about Obama with another Bloomberg reporter, Erik Schatzker.

  • Even though Saudi Arabia (Sunni) AND Iran (Shia) are engaged in their own power struggle for control of the Islamic world, they share the same goal which is to conquer the entire world for Islam. Iran is all for “wiping Israel off the map” and Saudi Arabia is all for destroying America and all western civilization from within. Saudi Arabia, however, has made more Sunni progress in America by influence-peddling our politicians, universities, public school systems, news media and even churches by deceiving the public. This is being accomplished through organized efforts of “sensitivity training,” promoting Islam through the educational curricula, inter-faith dialogue meetings and political-correctness; each of which hide what the Islamic ideology has in store for America’s future. Then we have Turkey’s goal which is to unite the Islamic world in order to establish the global Caliphate. It appears that the current Administration is willing to give a helping hand to all three efforts.

        you are totally clueless about what you just spewed ! what a fool you are !

  • Schawminator

    To all that visit this site I pray you will share this and other important Shoebat reporting’s with as many as possible. Many of the US contractors that work in the ME especially in Jordan know this to be the truth. More important is the possible big picture Obama seeks in his fundamental change for America that is also spoken to by many Jordanians which is to over through the Saudi royals and end the use of the US Petro-Dollar worldwide for oil purchases. This would indeed bring America and other democracies to their financial knees.
    We must share these reports and promote this site as frequently as possible. The most important reason is America already has a SHARIA COMPLIANT NEWS MEDIA. Therefore we won’t hear of these findings. The Obama administration must be dismantled by removing Obama from office and exposing all his puppeteers. expose Obama for the fraud he his and all his deceptions and the brotherhood within his administration will expose themselves so we can take them down and out.. There is nothing that could be more important for the survival of America and the world.

    • richinnameonly

      You find by far the most important news right here. The average persons diet of tv news feeds right in to our downfall. I continue to be amazed at the naivety of people and that Obama is still in office. The damage is fast on its way to being irreparable.

      • Schawminator

        The people the work and live in Amman Jordan find it so hard to believe we in America don’t know what they know about Obama. The people in France that are of the Gaullist thinking don’t understand why our news media doesn’t report what the Muslims have done to France and that their new president is complacent or enabling about it. The older Margret Thatcher group in the UK believe America no longer know their history.
        When you travel abroad as a government contractor, frequenting the local pups and restaurants these are now the common conversations heard and questions asked. WTF is up, is their short summary because they are living in what history documents their great grand-parents escaped from to come to America for a new start.

      “More important is the possible big picture Obama seeks in his fundamental change for America that is also spoken to by many Jordanians which is to over through the Saudi royals and end the use of the US Petro-Dollar worldwide for oil purchases.

      NO OPPOSITE! It would LIBERTATE the world from the SAUDI MONOPOLY! Come on you guys can’t you THINK FOR YOURSELVES FOR ONCE and remember that our Founding Fathers built our great nation on the principles of FIGHTING Aristocrats NOT pandering/supporting their global monopolistic banking Cartels!?

      A “New World Order” is a stupid conspiracy theory that has been blown WAY out of proportion thanks to Far Reich Wing Teabagging Neo-Fascist Nutjobs who live like 21st Century cavemen.

      It is a good thing because a New World Order is about overthrowing the Old World Order which is “Old Money” aka: Aristocracies like Great Britain and Saudi Arabia who OWN our Reich Wing MoxNews Media and the Reich Wing Republican Party today. Think about it: GWBush stole the 2000 election and yet his grandfather Prescott Bush funded Adolf Hitler…so why all of the sudden is Obama the scapegoat 😉 BECAUSE the OLD WORLD ORDER WANTS THAT. They want Obama to be the scapegoat to then bring about Rand Hitler Paul in 2016!! I will explain that point further at the end.

      This is the foundation of what America was built on. We have always fought against the “Old World Order” and good thing we have been doing it for a long time now!!

      Our Founding Fathers were Progressive Democrats NOT Regressive Teabagging Aristocratic-Corporate Fascist Thugs! That is the whole foundation of the Boston Tea Party. It was about breaking away from British Imperialism NOT SUPPORTING IT LIKE OUR ASTROTURF MURICAN TEABAGGING NEO-CONFEDERATES!!

      “I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.”–Thomas Jefferson

      Americans SHOULD be spending more time analyzing the Royalist/Aristocratic Koch Brothers and their ownership of our current Republican Party. THEY HATE OBAMA because he gets in the way of their Corporate Fascist Agenda for America in 2016 through their puppet Rand Hitler Paul who dares to “challenge our government to a trial by strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country.”

      “The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerated the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism: ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.”
      ― Franklin D. Roosevelt

      I will leave you all with the wise words of the genius Henry Wallace/Sinclair Lewis who forewarned the rise of the Tea Party, Rand Hitler Paul, and the End of America as forewarned:

      “When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and waving the cross”–Sinclair Lewis

      “The really dangerous American fascist… is the man who wants to do in the United States in an American way what Hitler did in Germany in a Prussian way. The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power… They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise, but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective, toward which all their deceit is directed, is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection.

      ~quoted in the New York Times, April 9, 1944”
      ― Henry A. Wallace

    It makes sense that Obama would despise Israel but unfortunately the Israelis don’t seem to be able to work out quite why that is.
    Regardless, I think that miscalculation is going to cost them much more than they bargained for.

    • Schawminator

      I think is will also cost Iran the most as Israel has the capability of turning Iran into a glass factory in less than an hour.
