Threat to Israel

The leaders of Israel are blind. They see Iran as their greatest threat. A quick look at the map proves this is not true. There is a 1000 miles of desert between the two countries.

The real threat to Israel is Saudi Arabia. Its border is less than a 100 miles from Jerusalem. The United States has supplied the Saudis with a huge amount of military equipment. Ostensibly, because they are on our side (just like the Shah of Iran was on our side). Very clever.

The corrupt monarchy that controls Saudi Arabia will eventually collapse. No one knows who will gain control when that happens. It could be the Shia. On the other hand, there are a million Yemenis in Saudi Arabia, mostly migrant workers.

One thing is certain. Given the support and training that Israel has given to the state control apparatus in Saudi Arabia, they will not be friends of Israel.
