Saudi Arabia gives Israel clear skies to attack Iranian nuclear sites





Saudi Arabia has conducted tests to stand down its air defences to enable Israeli jets to make a bombing raid on Iran’s nuclear facilities, The Times can reveal.

In the week that the UN Security Council imposed a new round of sanctions on Tehran, defence sources in the Gulf say that Riyadh has agreed to allow Israel to use a narrow corridor of its airspace in the north of the country to shorten the distance for a bombing run on Iran.

To ensure the Israeli bombers pass unmolested, Riyadh has carried out tests to make certain its own jets are not scrambled and missile defence systems not activated. Once the Israelis are through, the kingdom’s air defences will return to full alert.

“The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way,” said a US defence source in the area. “They have already done tests to make sure their own jets aren’t scrambled and no one gets shot down. This has all been done with the agreement of the [US] State Department.”

Sources in Saudi Arabia say it is common knowledge within defence circles in the kingdom that an arrangement is in place if Israel decides to launch the raid. Despite the tension between the two governments, they share a mutual loathing of the regime in Tehran and a common fear of Iran’s nuclear ambitions. “We all know this. We will let them [the Israelis] through and see nothing,” said one.

It seems that it is all coming together. All of those warnings about an all out war happening between Israel and Iran is coming true. And now they have the sponsorship of the Saudis.

Some one tell me this is not just some kind of sick joke. I mean after all the Flotilla BS now Israel is going to bomb Iran?

For those of you that want to put an end to all of the problems with the world please follow my signature to a very fascinating topic that should be a mandatory read for all ATSers.

I would've thought Saudi Arabia would take Iran's side before Israel's. Damn lyin' MSM. I just don't see Israel attacking Iran anytime soon though. I very well may be wrong but right now, I don't see it. I am in America though, so I got no pony in this race.

And with the UK austerity budget coming down on Jun 22, the previous posters who said taht something big is likely to happen Jun 23 might be right.

An Israeli attack on Iran combined with a worldwide stock panic after the British cutbacks are announced?

Could be an interesting media day if it all goes down.

I think most people would. Saudi Arabia is ruled by a Muslim government, but this is mostly in name only, they enforce Islamic type rules because it keeps the people satisfied to a certain extent.

Saudi Arabia is controlled by a family/oil cartel that will do whatever it can to keep its hold on the natural resources in the country, they don't act in the interests of their people.

Iran is often viewed as evil, but its people threw off a similar yoke of oppression in 1979, and unfortunately in the revolution they only took a small step forward.

As an American you do have a pony in this race because our government lends much support to Saudi Arabia's autocratic ruling families in order to get favorable deals on oil contracts and have another ally in the middle east(we have to buy them).

Bilderberg 2010 recently ended, and they have greenlighted the Iran strike as reports have stated. It is now or never it seems for TPTB.

That makes sense then. I am not to up on our affairs in the middle east so I prefer to keep my mouth shut on the issues. I know our stance but I really don't know much about things over there. Thanks for clarifying.

Nobody cares about Iran's nukes - the US was trying to sell them nuclear tech a few years ago in exchange for them kicking the Russians out.

This is about oil.

And Iran will not be a pushover. They haven't figured out how to beat Iran without destroying the whole country (including the oil fields). That's the only reason this hasn't happened yet.

Edit ... It's also why they've been pushing sanction after sanction to try and weaken it first.

Saudi Arabia is a resource state of America, no one can deny that, the rhetorics towards Israel it slaps here and there is only to stop the population of Saudi Arabia from revolting against the US even more.

The US is a huge empire, no one should forget that.

The Saudis are as bent and crooked as they come, and just love their money.
They also like the military protection they get from America.
The Zionist octopus in Washington clearly has tentacles that reach deep into the Kingdom.

Anyhow, when TSHTF, it will be really interesting to see which side the Saudis finally decide they are on.
Or maybe everyone will just disown them when the whole region bursts into flames.

Although the Saudis would never turn on Israel, they are itching to keep Iran at arms length, for fear of Iranian dominance of the Middle East, because the Islamic Republic is developing a nuke program, which can potentially tip the balance or at least equalize the conventional military powers of Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Arab states.

Could you supply any supporting evidence to your claim for Biderburg authorizing this strike?

It makes perfect sense. Saudi Arabia, the chief Arab/Shiit power, does not want the Persian/Sunni Iran to become the dominant power in the region. This way, they get to let Israel do their dirty work for them and take most of the blame. They probably would/will also go on the record and "condemn" Israel for invading their sovereign air space in order to perform such a raid (something the Israelis probably know, and will just shrug their shoulders at, should this come to pass). So, Israel would get the condemnation, Saudi Arabia gets most of the benefit - though it could spark a war between SA and Iran too, though SA might figure Iran would have their hands full dealing with Israel.

It's win-win for Saudi Arabia, mostly, though it does threaten a very large, wider conflict in the region that could still draw them in, anyway, but maybe they've decided it's worth the risk?


I just don't see Israel attacking Iran anytime soon though. I very well may be wrong but right now, I don't see it. I am in America though, so I got no pony in this race.

I hope not, but then again I don't think Netanyahu and Likud are necessarily rational actors, so I don't know. The Second Intifada has made them and their supporters kind of insane, IMO. I'm a pro-Israel Jew, but I fear and distrust the Likud hate-and-warmongers. I think they are very, very dangerous.

Firstly :


Arab/Shiit power, does not want the Persian/Sunni


Arabs are sunni, and Iran is Shiit..

Second Saudi Arabia is a US resource state, meaning Saudi Arabia is simply part of the US empire, the ultimate decision is for the US to make, just like the Ayatollahs of Iran.

That being said, it isn't Saudi Arabia's decision, but America's decision, so don't confuse it please.

My support comes from the venerable Jim Tucker, Grandfather of Investigative Journalism involving the Bilderberg group. Here was his final report from Madrid: www.americanfreepress.net...

Of course you have a pony in this race. Not only are your tax-dollars going to fund this raid, but it will be done in your name on two different fronts. One being your elected leaders support, arming and financing of Israel, and the other being your government's support, financing and arming of Suadi Arabia. All of this is going to be done in your name, with your money and labor.

MSNBC is reporting this now, as well.



Saudi Arabia will allow Israel to use a narrow corridor of its airspace in the north of the country to shorten the distance for a bombing run on Iran's nuclear facilities, the London Times reported on Saturday.

Quoting unnamed U.S. defense sources, the newspaper said Riyadh conducted tests to be sure its own jets would not be scrambled and missile defenses not be activated so Israeli bombers could pass by without problems.

The path would shorten Israel's bomb run, The Times said.


Source: Saudis clear Israel to bomb Iran?

Part of me wonders whether these unnamed U.S. defense sources might include the as yet unpublished, leaked state department cables recently reported in this thread and here.

I sincerely hope that war can be avoided by all parties and all sides. I do not wish to see more deaths than those which already occur daily.

Doh! You're right. I knew that, just had a momentary brain malfunction.

I will go so far as to agree that we can exercise enormous power over Saudi Arabia, they are our client state as much as is Israel, but I don't believe it is total control we have over them. I will concede that this might have been at the US's request (strong arming?), but I think it's just as likely because SA sees benefit for themselves, too. Israeli and Saudi Arabian interests are, somewhat, aligned in this.
