The Middle East is a mess. Exactly as they planned. It has been fractured and balkanized so that Greater Israel can be created but it is becoming clear to me that Saudi Arabia and Israel are working closer than most people think. Mohammed bin Salman is going to build Neom Saudi Arabia is the custodian of Mecca and I believe that he does not want a Shiite country at his back. He is cleaning up the Arabian Peninsula.

Saudi and UAE territorial claims to Yemen’s islands (9 min)
The Abraham Accords was negotiated by Otaiba the UAE American ambassador, who was one of the well-connected and powerful advocates in the US who was in contact with Jared Kushner, who was leading the peace deal negotiations. Israel now has close relations with the UAE. I would lay money on it that the airway is being built by Israel and the UAE possibly with input from Saudi.
Reporter: “It’s an action that you say they have taken, but you have shown no evidence to confirm that. […] This is like – crisis actors? Really? This is like Alex Jones territory you’re getting into now.”
Presumably this is called the Abraham accord because all the nations surrounding Israel are considered to be descendants of Abraham and all claim Abraham as their father and are counted as belonging to the Abrahamic faiths.
Of course, we cynically refer it to the promise given to Abraham in Gen 15: 18-21 which covenanted the land from the river of Egypt to the great river Euphrates. At the time the promise was given ten nations were enumerated as already dwelling in the land. Undoubtedly, the promise given to Abraham formed the basis of the Greater Israel or Yinon Plan:
"Bahrain is fully ready as it has opened its interfaith dialogue forums to Israelis years ago. Oman and Kuwait will be watching. But the big prize – the one that would shift the ground in the Middle East – is none other than Saudi Arabia. The Kingdom’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is a friend and ally to Mohammed bin Zayed, and the young Saudi prince has already launched the greatest reform in the history of the Kingdom. He has been behind the Gulf diplomatic renaissance – along with Trump since the Riyadh summit. But he must carefully complete his deep reforms at home in order for him to lead the Arab Coalition on the road to Jerusalem, to pray in peace."
Israel (using the USA) has already fragmented the Middle East. The attack on Beirut and the burning of the wheat harvest in Syria has left them vulnerable. Of course, Israel blames Hezbollah for the Beirut attack. Iran is under increasing pressure and the Palestinians are constantly bombed. It is only a matter of time before they all bow the knee to Israel.
Beirut Port is on fire again near the site of the explosion. What’s left to burn? They’re saying it’s oil and tyres. Very bizarre.pic.twitter.com/JVaharMLkG
So, the wonderful new peace is celebrated – but is it really peace?
It’s a mighty shame that while these Israeli models are celebrating #uaeisrael partnership, Palestinians are suffering under brutal Israeli apartheid regime. This UAE betrayal is utterly despicable. pic.twitter.com/IOcEYtvsk7
Bahrain, a sovereign state situated about 200 km to the northwest of the UAE in the Persian Gulf, becomes the fourth Arab nation after the UAE, Jordan and Egypt to establish relations with Israel since the Jewish State’s creation in 1948.#UAEIsrael#BahrainIsraelpic.twitter.com/7Qtx4nB6ho
The Christian-Zionist website Breaking News Israel now called Israel 365 News prefaces an article about the normalization of flights with the following quote (emphasis mine):
In those days, ten men from nations of every tongue will take hold—they will take hold of every Yehudi by a corner of his cloak and say, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that Hashem is with you.” Zechariah 8:23 (The Israel BibleTM)
There are a few things to note here. Firstly the mention of ten nations – the same number appears in Gen 15 and Rev 17 and secondly this translation is tendentious as it comes from their own translation (Israel BibleTM) even the Jewish Publication Society (JPS) renders it differently:
JPS Zechariah 8:23 Thus saith the LORD of hosts: In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold, out of all the languages of the nations, shall even take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying: We will go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'
The original text renders a Jew (singular) not every Jew (Yehudi). The Jew being referenced here is the Messiah – Jesus Christ – otherwise called Immanuel or God with us. The translation offered to Christians by the Israel Bible is deceptive. It is the work of Jacob the deceiver. The Jews talk about Tikun Olam or “heal the world” but by that they mean subject the world and impose their will. Collectively the Jewish nation is not able to heal anyone. It cannot even heal itself. And the Jewish nation will have no lasting peace until it makes peace with God.
Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) says it has seized a foreign vessel with 12-crew members carrying one million barrels of oil. In an official Iranian media statement early on Thursday, the country’s military asserted the tanker was caught “smuggling” the fuel through the Strait of Hormuz.
The ship’s registered owner, Dubai-based Prime Tankers LLC, told the AP it had sold the ship to another company called Mouj Al-Bahar. A man who answered a telephone number registered to the firm told the AP it didn’t own any ships. The Emirati official said the ship was “neither UAE owned nor operated” and carried no Emirati personnel, without elaborating. If they were smuggling that would explain why there wasn’t any distress signal and why the UAE has forsworn any knowledge or responsibility for the vessel.
So, does it belong to the UAE or to Panama (even the UK has been suggested)?
A phantom drone and a phantom ship up to no good….who would have thunk it?
It is better not to believe any of it. The war drums are beating and as long as they can paint a picture of a lawless, aggressive Iran that is believed by 80% of the public they will have done a good job of preparing public sentiment for the need to intervene and make the world safe for us all.
We might be heading into “war by accident” as the recent sabotage of tankers at a UAE port demonstrates. Of course Iran is saying that it is a “Psyop” or “False flag” and they threaten to retaliate against Israel if they are attacked.
The tanker sabotage was at first denied (?) but is now fairly well established as screenshots of this Arabic video report demonstrates:
As Russia Today reports; the Norwegian ship “André Victoria”, which was subjected to subversive acts in the Fujairah against four ships near the territorial waters of the UAE, received a powerful blow that almost led her to sink.
Senior State Dept. official Brian Hook responded with “no comment” when asked if Iran was to blame for the alleged attacks on the commercial vessels near the vital Strait of Hormuz.
As the seventeen “intelligence agencies” do not seem to know who did it we thought we might give them a helping hand by conducting a poll where you the reader can give them a clue where to start looking. So in the best tradition of the “who done it” genre we ask you to indicate the culprit who is keen to start WW3:
Please help the intelligence agencies as they do not have a clue. It might be a bearded man in a cave somewhere but rumor has it they do not like getting their feet wet.
PEPE ESCOBAR: Iran Squeezed Between Imperial Psychos and European Cowards
Last week Pompeo warned that Iran was up to something This week confusing reports – witnesses claim tankers targeted – UAE and US deny Is it a false flag attack that went wrong (Mossad)? An excuse to attack Iran? Or perhaps it is Iran (but unlikely)?
The trouble is that truth is now dead, who knows? Let God be true and every man a liar. Amen
