Is Saudi Arabia Key to America’s Mideast Strategy?

In early November, Houthi rebels in Yemen, backed by the Islamic Republic of Iran, launched a missile strike targeting the King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Although the missile, like more than 100 others launched at Saudi Arabia from Yemen over the past two years, was intercepted, and no casualties were incurred, the incident served as yet another reminder of Tehran’s aggression and hegemonic ambitions in the Middle East, through proxy terrorist organizations. The Houthis are but one example; al Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah are others.

In the immediate aftermath of the attack, U.S. President Donald Trump telephoned Saudi King Salman to repeat the importance of fighting terrorism in the region and the world — the stated purpose of the joint American-Saudi Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology, which the two leaders inaugurated in Riyadh in May, at a gathering of representatives from 50 Islamic nations.

Saudi king to Trump: Jerusalem embassy move a ‘dangerous step’

    King Salman says move will ‘inflame’ Muslims worldwide, harm chances for Israeli-Palestinian peace deal

    1) The followers of Mo are always inflamed about something. I think it has something to do with frustrated sex drives and eating halal meat full of adrenalin, along with cortisol.
    2) There was never a chance for a peace deal. The followers of Mo hate the Jews and want them dead.

    Let’s not pretend here.
    For 3000 years the Jews have had a civilization in Israel and Jerusalem. Palestine is a fiction made up by Yassir Arafat.

    • It’s a war against Islam, if you put marmots in Israel instead of Israelis the Muslims would fight the Marmots.

      • Chatillon

        Be fair, now. That’s only because the Marmots would offend the Muslims first.

    In other news, saudi bigshot has a towel on his head. Probably stole it from the Marriott. His own people can’t produce shit. Note even towels. If it wasn’t for oil under his borders, he’d be lazily wiping flies from his eyes.
