Zero Hedge 7 Nov. 2017 Early this morning, Israeli Channel 10 news published a leaked diplomatic cable which had been sent to all Israeli ambassadors throughout the world concerning the chaotic events that unfolded over the weekend in Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, which began with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s unexpected resignation after he was summoned to Riyadh by his Saudi-backers, and led to the Saudis announcing that Lebanon had “declared war” against the kingdom.
The classified embassy cable, written in Hebrew, constitutes the first formal evidence proving that the Saudis and Israelis are deliberately coordinating to escalate the situation in the Middle East.
Kommentar: Diese Allianz wurde schon am 28. Mai 2016 von Breitbart mitgeteilt. Das Neue ist, dass sie jetzt öffentlich gemacht wird.
Comment: This alliance was announced already on 28. Mai 2016 by Breitbart. The new thing is that this alliance is now being made public.
The explosive classified Israeli cable reveals the following:
The cable urged support for Saudi Arabia’s war against Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen.
The cable stressed that Iran was engaged in “regional subversion”.
Israeli diplomats were urged to appeal to the “highest officials” within their host countries to attempt to expel Hezbollah from Lebanese government and politics.
The Israeli reporter who obtained the document is Barak Ravid, senior diplomatic correspondent for Channel 10 News. Ravid announced the following through Twitter yesterday:
The cable sent from the MFA in Jerusalem [Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs] to all Israeli embassies toes the Saudi line regarding the Hariri resignation.
Thus, as things increasingly heat up in the Middle East, it appears the anti-Iran and anti-Shia alliance of convenience between the Saudis and Israelis appears to have placed Lebanon in the cross hairs of yet another looming Israeli-Hezbollah war. And the war in Yemen will also continue to escalate – perhaps now with increasingly overt Israeli political support.
All of this this comes, perhaps not coincidentally, at the very moment ISIS is on the verge of complete annihilation (partly at the hands of Hezbollah), and as both Israel and Saudi Arabia have of late increasingly declared “red lines” concerning perceived Iranian influence across the region as well as broad Hezbollah acceptance and popularity within Lebanon.
What has both Israel and the Saudis worried is the fact that the Syrian war has strengthened Hezbollah, not weakened it.
Memo 8 Nov. 2017: On Saturday, Hariri announced his resignation during a visit to Saudi Arabia and launched a scathing attack against Iran and Hezbollah. Adviser to the Iranian foreign affairs minister, Hussein Sheikh Al-Islam, said the Lebanese prime minister’s resignation came upon the orders of US President Donald Trump and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.
Later, Israeli Minister of Intelligence Yisrael Katz wrote on Twitter: “Hariri’s resignation in Lebanon is a crossroads. Now is the time to press and isolate Hezbollah until it is weakened and disarmed.”
