  • MbS a la Trump: "Making Saudi Arabia Great Again"!
    • Given that like Trump, MBS is a classic "man child," this will not end well for Saudi Arabia.

      Apparently, he is also unaware of the old adage, "he who lies down with dogs wakes up with fleas."

  • Will New Crown Prince in Riyadh Usher in Open Saudi-Israeli Alliance?
    • Nothing will lead faster to the collapse of the House of Saud's corrupt dictatorship than it forming an alliance with Israel.
      There will be no such alliance.

      "Cluster Bombs and Yachts: 5 Things You Should Know About Saudi Arabia's New Crown Prince"

      "The world's youngest defense minister, Mohammed bin Salman, has become the poster boy for Saudi Arabia’s proxy wars in the Middle East"

    • Saudi Arabia is under the boot of a corrupt, medieval, soft-handed, murderous and despicable leadership. What the new "crown prince" and his ilk fear more than anything is the demand for democracy throughout the Arab world.

      Reality:

      In 1982, Israel launched an unprovoked (i.e., the PLO had scrupulously adhered to the 1981 cease-fire negotiated by the Reagan administration) invasion of Lebanon with the objective of destroying the morale of Palestinians in the occupied territories by obliterating the PLO, gaining control of Lebanon's Litani River (to divert its waters into northern Israel) and to install a "friendly" Phalangist government in Beirut. (Israel had already seized and occupied Lebanon’s Shebaa Farms during the war it launched on 5 June 1967.) As the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee declared at the time, well over 20,000 Lebanese nationals and Palestinian refugees were killed (80% were civilians) and half a million turned into refugees by Israel during its 1982 invasion.

      Also, as orchestrated by then Defence Minister Ariel Sharon, 2,000-3,000 defenseless Palestinian children, women and old men were massacred in Lebanon's Sabra and Shatila refugee camps by Israel's Phalangist allies while Israel's occupation forces looked on from observation towers. With Sharon's full approval, Israeli soldiers provided the Phalangists with night time illumination and bulldozers to dispose of the bodies, served them tea, cookies, and cokes during breaks from their murderous rampage, and prevented the Palestinians from escaping. Sharon paid no meaningful price for his monstrous crime even though Israel's Kahan Report found that he "bears personal responsibility" for the massacres at Sabra and Shatila ((only one of many documented unspeakable atrocities he instigated and/or directly participated in.)

      Israel's brutal invasion of Lebanon in 1982, its slaughter of thousands upon thousands, mostly innocents, and its subsequent occupation of Lebanon led to the formation of Hezbollah.

    • Prophetic comments by 4 eminent Jews:

      Senator Henry Morgenthau Sr., renowned Jewish American and former U.S. Ambassador to Turkey, 1919: "Zionism is the most stupendous fallacy in Jewish history....The very fervour of my feeling for the oppressed of every race and every land, especially for the Jews, those of my own blood and faith, to whom I am bound by every tender tie, impels me to fight with all the greater force against this scheme, which my intelligence tells me can only lead them deeper into the mire of the past, while it professes to be leading them to the heights. Zionism is... a retrogression into the blackest error, and not progress toward the light."

      Asked to sign a petition supporting settlement of Jews in Palestine, Sigmund Freud declined: "I cannot...I do not think that Palestine could ever become a Jewish state....It would have seemed more sensible to me to establish a Jewish homeland on a less historically-burdened land....I can raise no sympathy at all for the misdirected piety which transforms a piece of a Herodian wall into a national relic, thereby offending the feelings of the natives." (Letter to Dr. Chaim Koffler Keren HaYassod, Vienna: 2/26/30)

      Albert Einstein, 1939: “There could be no greater calamity than a permanent discord between us and the Arab people…. Let us recall that in former times no people lived in greater friendship with us than the ancestors of these Arabs.”

      Lessing J. Rosenwald, president of the American Council for Judaism, 1944: “The concept of a racial state – the Hitlerian concept- is repugnant to the civilized world, as witness the fearful global war in which we are involved. . . , I urge that we do nothing to set us back on the road to the past. To project at this time the creation of a Jewish state or commonwealth is to launch a singular innovation in world affairs which might well have incalculable consequences.”
