Tel Aviv had cried ‘wolf’ at every major US military sale to Saudi ‘royals’ or the western puppet Sheikhs in the Gulf. For example Ronald Reagan’s sale of five AWACS radar planes in 1981 though they were to be managed by the Pentagon. However, last year when Obama administration announced the sale to Riyadh of 84 advanced F15 fighter jets for $20 billion – Israel showed its displeasure but did not use its Jewish Lobby muscles to kill the deal. The reason Benji Netanyahu was assured that the F15 will not be as sophisticated as F15s Israel is receiving free of cost. Furthermore, the Zionist regime was assured that the sale will boost Saudi military capability to counter the rising Iranian influence in the region which is viewed as a major strategic threat in Tel Aviv, Washington and Riyadh. Riyadh has proven its alliance with Israel and the US by fighting their proxy military wars in Yemen and Bahrain. Saudis are also funding the anti-government movements in Syria and Lebanon.
Saudi ‘royals’ secretly have been busy creating an alliance of like-minded corrupt Arab rulers for their fight against the Islamic Republic. In its recent report, London-based Chatham House, a sister-think tank of America’s most powerful Jewish-controlled think tank, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has warned that Saudi Arabia’s efforts to maintain the regional status quo, refusal to recognize that the protests are fundamentally sparked by widespread political and economic discontent and insistence that Iran is at the root of all evil could provoke sectarian tension across the Middle East and Asia.
The Israel-US-Saudi ‘axis of evil’ are bent on salvaging the colonial status quo in the Middle East. However, Martin Kramer of Israel’s conservative Shalem Center, in his presentation at the February 2011 Herzliya Conference assigned that job to Washington: “In Israel, we are for the status quo. Not only do we believe the status quo is sustainable, we think it’s the job of the US to sustain it“.
The fall of western puppet rulers in Tunisia and Egypt and the ongoing protests in Bahrain, Yemen, Syria and Libya to force the current rulers to turn to democratic and more open governance – shows the success of Tehran’s ‘soft revolution’ through diplomacy, trade, financial aid, independent foreign policy and moral support to the people in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Lebanon, Bahrain, Yemen and Bosnia fighting against the foreign occupation forces and their local agents.
Some American political analyst also point some tension between Washington and Tel-Aviv-Riyadh on how to sustain the status quo in the region which has benefitted to all three brutal powers. Obama administration seems to have come to conclusion that ‘Arab Spring’ cannot be reversed and prefers to balance its interests without damaging strategic Israel-Saudi interests. However, Israel and Saudi Arabia view regional developments quite differently. Both are affraid that the vacuum left by deminishing US military presence in the region will soon be filled by Iran-Turkish alliance or either of them. Turkey, though lately has started voicing its support for Palestinian state, it still maintains diplomatic relations with the Zionist regime.
