Watch the Saudis!

Our relationship with Saudi Arabia over the decades has been, shall we say, uneven?

In 1973, because Nixon sent munitions and hardware to Israel in its existential war with Syria and Egypt, the Saudis made it painful for us as the pump, inflating oil prices as punishment.

We remember too that it was mostly Saudi nationals that flew planes into the World Trade Center, then the next day our government mysteriously allowed several highly placed citizens of the kingdom to fly home.

In 2002, Saudi Arabia floated a “peace plan” that gained some traction between Israelis and Palestinians.

The problem with all three above scenarios is that the Saudis were anything but allies for us. Until Donald Trump, we had long been dependent on the Saudis for oil. The ’73 embargo, the Twin Towers attacks, and a peace plan designed to hurt our real ally, Israel, all revealed the desert kingdom to be anything but our friends.

I don’t trust them, at all.

In 2020, Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu worked tirelessly to negotiate the celebrated “Abraham Accords,” which opened up economic and social avenues between the Jewish state and Arab countries that had long been enemies.

Bahrain and the UAE (United Arab Emirates) signed a deal at the White House to cooperate with Israel. Within two months, Sudan and Morocco joined the party.

Now comes word that Saudi Arabia might want to join the Accords. This would be a hallmark of Netanyahu’s career and would go a long way in cementing his legacy.

But at what cost?

As is usually the case in these matters, it is expected that Israel will make painful concessions…not the Palestinians or any Arab country.

In a report from the Jerusalem Post:

“Despite recent US-brokered normalization talks between Israel and Saudi Arabia, the entirety of the Jewish State is still referred to as ‘Palestine’ in an update of the Saudis’ official map of the country and its borders published earlier this week.

“Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Survey and Geospatial Information released the map, which they implored to be exclusively used by media in the kingdom.

“It described the map as one with ‘reliable national reference for general purpose applications, and is intended to be used for strategic planning, feature location and identification.’”

That last paragraph is a word salad that basically means the fangs are still out for Israel.

This is outrageous, my friends.

An outrage.

Why would Israel trust a country that not only shows support for a terror entity (the PLO), but refuses to live in reality? There is no “Palestine” as a sovereign nation. It is a political term, a weapon to use against Israel.

Why can’t Israel present preconditions and stick to them and receive what they want in negotiations?

I know what will happen if this progresses. They might sign some sort of agreement, but the Saudis—like other rogue nations in the Middle East—will continue to placate the terrorists and pretend that “Palestine” exists.

I can’t see a scenario in which Israel could ever let her guard down. Maybe in 500 years? Who knows.

Our illegitimate Secretary of State, the leftist Anthony Blinken, said this week that a deal hinges on concessions for the Palestinians!

It also doesn’t help that this week, former negotiator Martin Indyk revealed his embarrassing naivete when he said he was dismayed that Mahmoud Abbas preaches violence against Jews, just like his boss, Yasser Arafat did. Indyk intimated that he was caught off-guard by all this, because after all, the heads of the Palestinian snake had treated him “like a friend” for 30 years!

Do you believe these men are this dense? I do not.

I can wish Israel would reject such political blackmail, but that and ten dollars wouldn’t get me a cup of coffee.

We will continue to watch the latest iteration of the Abraham Accords, but we’re not likely to be happy with the outcome.

Telling children lies

The intense propaganda war against Israel continues. It started more than 100 years ago. Pre-state and now modern state, Israel is the victim of a smear campaign that has seemingly countless tentacles.

The “youth camps” in Gaza that indoctrinate Palestinian kids to hate Jews is one of the worst threats to the Jewish state, because it ensures future generations are corrupted. Long after the current political leaders are gone, today’s youth and future leaders will still be fighting a devil that isn’t there. The things Arab youth are subjected to should be criminal, literally, but with corrupt leaders on the ground and unhelpful international diplomats (and heads of state!), it is unlikely they will be freed from this deception anytime soon. I have long believed that pro-Israel Christians have a duty to remember these young people in prayer. They deserve a better life.

Twenty years ago, I had the privilege of visiting the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, north of Tel Aviv. It is the nerve-center of the early Israeli intelligence apparatus. Nestled under a thick bank of trees, the Center has a small theatre where fascinating films are shown of the early state of Israel (and incredible stories like the spy Eli Cohen), an outside tribute to the fallen agents that have protected Israel, and a fascinating collection of captured terrorist weaponry and propaganda.

It is the propaganda that is particularly disturbing. This section feels like a visit to a Holocaust museum, where one can see how indoctrination poisoned whole societies.

I remember the school notebooks, textbooks, and drawings that reflected the most odious anti-Semitic filth. All produced in Palestinian schools.


The Center just released a document detailing how the city of Jerusalem is portrayed in Palestinian school textbooks. These books also exist outside Gaza, in east Jerusalem and Judea/Samaria.

As the article states:

“Jerusalem’s image, as reflected in the books is strongly one-sided, in sharp contrast to its image in the Israeli schoolbooks, which emphasize its holiness to the three monotheistic religions and treat its Arab inhabitants as the city’s integral part (see in the Appendix). The PA textbooks never mention the fact that Jerusalem is a city holy to Jews as well, alongside its sanctity to Muslims and Christians. Nor are Jews mentioned as part of this city’s history or as its legitimate inhabitants in any of the schoolbooks examined for the purpose of this study (as well as PA schoolbooks for grades 11 and 12 which are not included in the PA schools). There are even expressed denials of these facts in the books, thus falsifying both history and reality.”

First of all, here is a strange detail: In the textbooks, Jerusalem is referred to as “Al-Quds,”most commonly used in Arabic for the city. The more official version, Madinat Al-Quds, is actually an ancient Arabic translation from the Hebrew “Ir Ha-Qodesh”! The Arabs must borrow from Hebrew culture, always.

The textbooks completely skip over Jewish history. Jerusalem is presented originally as part of the “Arab Jesus” and then hurtles forward to the Roman and later Muslim periods. This is unconscionable, and worse, for a generation, American tax dollars have been used to produce such garbage. But American presidents and their diplomatic corps do nothing to stop it. Cut off the money!

Even when Jesus Christi is mentioned in the context of Christian involvement in the area, nowhere are the Jews mentioned. The writers and producers of these horrible textbooks claim that the Israelis “forge” and falsify history, turning facts upside down. Of course, this is exactly what they doing—now part of a globalist tactic used even in the United States—and the origins of this are directly from old Soviet propagandists, who trained Yasser Arafat and his henchmen in the fine art of lying to advance political causes.

It’s all barbaric and we need to call it as such. Just another front in a long, long war.
