Israeli General in Saudi News Calls for Cooperation Against Iran

Arab foreign ministers meet at the request of Saudi Arabia in Cairo Arab foreign ministers meet at the request of Saudi Arabia in Cairo

A Saudi newspaper published an unprecedented interview on Thursday with the Israeli military chief, Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot.

One need only look at a map of the Middle East to see how both Israel and Saudi Arabia - Iran's two main foes - would be threatened by this goal.

Israeli Military Chief Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot today gave an interview to a Saudi media outlet suggesting the two nations are in "full agreement" and ready to share intelligence on Iran. "There are many shared interests between us".

While Israel and Saudi Arabia do not have diplomatic relations, they have been edging closer recently, including a visit a year ago by a retired Saudi general heading a delegation seeking to encourage better relations.

In the interview to the Saudi online newspaper Elaph, Eisenkot called Iran the "real and largest threat to the region".

The leader of Hezbollah, the Lebanese group supported by Iran , has accused Saudi Arabia of pressing Israel to launch attacks against it.

Israel has increasingly been making public alliance with Saudi Arabia following the inauguration of Donald Trump as USA president earlier this year.

"A major and general strategic plan must be prepared to stop the Iranian danger, and we are ready to exchange expertise with moderate Arab states and exchange intelligence information to face Iran", he said, according to Elaph, which said the interview was conducted at Eizenkot's office in Tel Aviv by an Israeli Arab journalist.

Quoting the unnamed "high level source", the report says the prince will shift his focus to its longtime rival Iran and enlist the help of the Israeli military to crush its proxy Hezbollah in Lebanon.

In a statement on Friday, Qassemi dismissed the latest anti-Iran claims made by Saudi foreign minister and warned about the repercussions of Riyadh's destructive measures in the region. "On the other hand, we see Iranian attempts to escalate".

The JPost also mentions how the "moderates" of Iran have been spending the windfall Obama's nuclear deal dropped in their laps, including $60-70 million for Hamas in the Gaza Strip, hundreds of millions for militias in Syria and Iraq, funding for the Houthi insurgents in Yemen, and $800 million for Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Trump's first trip overseas as president included stops in Saudi Arabia and Israel . It's going to be very hard for Saudi Arabia to reclaim the religious legitimacy that it has had, not just over the decades, but the centuries towering over the Islamic world, and yet, lay in bed with the enemy.
