Saudi Arabia and Iran spoil israel's fun

Back to the drawing board . . .

Ahmedinejad and Abdullah, March 4 2007

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Saudi King Abdullah agreed to counter attempts to fuel Sunni-Shiite strife during a visit by the Iranian leader to Saudi Arabia, official media said here Sunday.

Ahmadinejad said he concurred with Abdullah during talks on Saturday that Iran and the kingdom would work together to thwart "enemy" plots seeking to divide the Islamic world.

According to the Saudi SPA news agency, Ahmadinejad also endorsed Riyadh's efforts to resolve the political crisis in Lebanon.

It said the two leaders stressed the need to preserve Iraq's national unity and ensure equality between its citizens.

The agreement to prevent sectarian strife was reported after Ahmadinejad ended a brief visit to Riyadh overshadowed by the ongoing Sunni-Shiite violence in Iraq and a political deadlock in Lebanon which has raised fears of similar infighting.

Notice that the quotes from these leaders decidedly pin the blame for "secterian strife" on a common enemy, yet the editorialization continues to shift the blame back to internal differences.

Very subtle, but highly effective propaganda technique - creating the illusion that Saudi Arabia and Iran are 'struggling' to bridge an internal divide, when in reality it's externally imposed.

Relations between regional heavyweights Iran and Saudi Arabia have been strained over non-Arab Iran's growing influence in Iraq and its perceived backing of Shiite militias battling the once-ruling Sunni minority there.

"The two leaders affirmed that the greatest danger presently threatening the Islamic nation is the attempt to fuel the fire of strife between Sunni and Shiite Muslims, and that efforts must concentrate on countering these attempts and closing ranks," SPA said.

Ahmadinejad told reporters after returning to Tehran that he discussed with Abdullah "the plots carried out by the enemies in order to divide the world of Islam."

"Fortunately we and the Saudis were fully aware of the threats of our enemies and we condemned them," he said.

He did not specify who the enemies were.

Did you bother to ask???

No. Instead, you'll just make subtle innuendos with some 'background information' of your choosing and paint your own picture for readers.

Iran's chief Western foe, the United States, is one of Riyadh's closest allies.

Lebanon has also severely tested ties between predominantly Shiite Iran and Sunni-dominated Saudi Arabia, which provides substantial financial aid to Beirut and has close links with the Western-backed government of Sunni Prime Minister Fuad Siniora.

The anti-Syrian Lebanese administration has been crippled by an opposition ministerial walkout and an open-ended protest spearheaded by the Iranian-backed Shiite movement Hezbollah.

But Riyadh and Tehran recently began working together to reduce tensions in Lebanon[.]

End fantasy, begin real quotes and reality.

[A]ccording to the Saudi account of the talks, Ahmadinejad stated that Iran "assists the kingdom's efforts to calm the situation in Lebanon and end its political crisis."

He and Abdullah expressed the hope that "all Lebanese sides will respond (positively) to these efforts," SPA said.

The two leaders affirmed that they were keen on preserving "Iraq's independence, national unity and equality between its citizens," it said.

"We discussed the Palestinian and Iraq issues comprehensively. We have common views in this regard," Ahmadinejad told reporters at Tehran's main airport.

Ahmadinejad "voiced support for the (Saudi-authored) Arab peace initiative endorsed by the Arab summit in Beirut in 2002," SPA said without elaborating.

Under the plan, the Arab world would normalise ties with Israel in exchange for a full withdrawal from Arab land occupied since 1967 and the establishment of a Palestinian state.

So, in reality, Ahmedinejad is willing to recognize israel if israel ends its illegal occupation.

End reality, begin bullshit.

Ahmadinejad, on the other hand, has said that Israel should be "wiped from the map" and is doomed to disappear.

Reality break.

"My trip was a business trip and was necessary to talk about the developments in our region and the world of Islam and be briefed about each other's point of view," he said.

That was quick.

The two oil powerhouses have sought to contain differences over Iraq, which at one point saw Saudi Arabia accusing the United States of effectively handing the country to Iran and triggered reports -- swiftly denied by Riyadh -- of possible Saudi intervention on behalf of Sunnis.

Saudi commentators saw Ahmadinejad's visit as a sign that the two countries are pooling efforts to ease explosive regional crises.

Zionists will 'be forced to' either step up their covert acts or move on to their Samson Option.

Is totally dependent on the US and by extension Israel, for its currency value and its military equipment.

If Saudi dares to go against the US, its currency is de-valued and the Saud family will be de-throned. The Saudis must be afraid, they need to be very careful they have many enemies and alot of effort is being made to remove them from power.

leftfield, it's the US that should be worried about its relations with Saudi Arabia. The thing is, Saudi investors have deposits in US banks in the billions. If they were all to withdraw their money and invest it somewhere else, i.e. Europe, then the US will suffer a severe financial blow. Not to mention that the US already has billions of dollars in debts, in favour of countries like Japan and the likes.

So regarding currency devaluation, it'd be the other way round.

Right now America is playing with the most fragile monetary system. Everything America does she does to protect "Dollar Hegemony". She will break any law. Kill any person. Subvert any independent opposition. All to stay top potato. Or to put it another more street way "They are Generally sucking around for a black eye or a busted nose on top of that broken back."

Beware of throwing rocks when you live in a glass house America.

737 American Empire bases. Targets as you will. Now if you see the need to expand to 737 BASES then you may be sadly mistaken as to how secure even this number of Empire outposts could ever be. Shit if you were talking like sept 12 Bush against those 773 bases the fight would be an estimated fifteen minutes (15). America would lose of course EVERY one of those bases and the world would be short the wonder and help of space,clean air,healthy food and water. FOR? What is the game? Total population reduction? Kill us all so you all win by default? This is a foolish hope Mr Money Changer. Foolish and foolhardy to think that this 773 bases is going to do you any good after 5.8974 billion heads are looking for your hoarding corpses.

You all need to Withdraw. We are the power. The power is so diffuse that the only things left is lies and there mediums and houses of poverty infliction. WE pay the WHOLE enchilada for the mess and before the RightWingReligousCriminals Nuke the whole surface to kill us unprotected cattle so they can have every thing now built to shop from WE just may have some MAJOR concerns.

Uranium-238 is FAR more hazardous than they are allowing To be known. sooner or later the other lands are going to have to retaliate for American military use of DU nuclear/chemical weapons and systems.

773 is a cake walk for the Totally Pissed Off Everyone repair unit of 5+ billion heads. And they can party While they fix your little monolopy farce US FED banking system.

Tehran, March 4, IRNA

Iran-Ahmadinejad-Peace
Deputy head of the Presidential Office Media Department, Ehsan Jahan-Dideh, on Sunday strongly rejected reports about the recent talks between President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Saudi King Abdullah claiming that the two sides discussed the Arab peace plan.

Speaking to IRNA, he underlined that no reference was made to the issue during the Riyadh talks between the two heads of state.

The Saudi Press Agency (SPA) claimed on Sunday that in his talks with King Abdullah, President Ahmadinejad supported the Arab peace plan, which was approved at the Arab heads of state summit in 2002.

Based on the plan, some Arab states attending the Beirut meeting agreed to revise relations with Tel Aviv if Zionist forces withdraw and return to the 1967 borders.

Ahmadinejad paid a short one-day visit to Saudi Arabia on Saturday during which he met King Abdullah to discuss the latest developments in the Middle East.

UnitedNevertheless, by the looks of this pic, there is no way that israel is going to get Arabs to come on board a plan to attack Iran.
