Gives new meaning to the idea ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend.’ A report by a well-known journalist revealed that Saudi Arabia has provided financial backup for the Israeli Mossad agency’s terror operations on Iran’s nuclear scientists.
FARS NEWS (H/T Shoebat) The collaboration between Mossad and Riyadh was unveiled by Barry Lando in an article titled “A Strange Alliance: Are the Saudis Bankrolling Israel’s Mossad?”
“A friend, with good sources in the Israeli government, claims that the head of Israel’s Mossad has made several trips to deal with his counterparts in Saudi Arabia-one of the results: an agreement that the Saudis would bankroll the series of assassinations of several of Iran’s top nuclear experts that have occurred over the past couple of years. The amount involved, my friend claims, was $1 billion dollar. A sum, he says, the Saudis considered cheap for the damage done to Iran’s nuclear program.”
(And, as we already know, the Saudis have given flyover rights to Israel in the event of an attack on Iran)
At first blush, the tale sounds preposterous. On the other hand. it makes eminent sense. The murky swamp of Middle East politics has nothing to do with the easy slogans and 30 second sound bites of presidential debates.
Barry M. Lando, a graduate of Harvard and Columbia University, spent 25 years as an award-winning investigative producer with 60 Minutes. His latest book is “Web of Deceit: The History of Western Complicity in Iraq, from Churchill to Kennedy to George W. Bush.”
