Saudi King: Wipe Both Iran And Israel Off The Map

Yet another little tidbit from our friends, the Saudis.

during a meeting on June 5, King Abdullah, the aging autocrat of Saudi Arabia reportedly told French Defense Minister Hervé Morin that "There are two countries in the world that do not deserve to exist: Iran and Israel."

The link is to a story by Georges Malbrunot, a highly respected French Middle East correspondent with Le Figaro., who says that two independent sources confirmed King Abdullah's poisonous remarks.

Not to worry though. The White House statement following the recent Obama-Abdullah meeting reaffirmed the usual malarky about "two states living side-by-side in peace and security."

Of course.

please helps me write more gooder!

what i find alarming in ff posting, is, i thought malarkey had an "e" in it.
ff would use a word like that to describe the hussein-abdullah meeting.
i would use the word horseshit.
i just can't figure out which is the horse.
the ra......, ra......, islamist abdullah has no moral standing to make such a claim. that such a dysfunctional family masquerading as a nation would be allowed to interact on the world stage is disgusting. exceeded only by my disgust for western leaders allowing it to happen.

I will keep this in mind next time someone mentions the "Saudi Peace Plan".

The quote as reported by FF is "there are two countries in the world that do not deserve to exist: Iran and Israel." I strongly suspect the quote is accurate, however, I think it probable that whoever copied this made an error. What I think King Abdullah actually said was "there are two countries in the world that do not deserve to exist: Israel and Iran."

I think the order of how the countries are listed says a great deal. I've always thought that the Saudis and the Iranians would work together to fight common enemies of America and Israel. As such, I've always thought that reports of Saudi Arabia agreeing to assist Israel in an attack on Iran were either bogus or an attempt by the Iranians and the Saudis to lure the Israelis and perhaps the Americans into a trap. Another possiblity is the Iranians are looking to engage in a preemptive decapatation attack on America and they planted these reports in the media to justify their actions.

Now, if the Saudi leader really did list Iran first in his quote it may mean that he actually believes the Iranians a worse enemy and might actually be willing to work with the Israelis to deal with the threat. In this case, the Saudi leader is a little late in recognizing this. Had his country not sought to undermine the United States every step of the way in Iraq, we would very likely have an Iraqi government vigorously opposed to Iran to act as a buffer between his country and the Iranians. On top of that this Iraqi government would be friendly with his country. By undermining America in Iraq he actually undermined his own country and his own regime. Opposing Operation Iraqi Freedom may be one stupidist moves in the history of foreign policy by the Saudi Government.
