Saudi Official: "The Age of War with Israel is over'
â€śHistory and Allah brought a real opportunity,â€ť a top-ranking Saudi diplomat told Israelis via an interview in Globes on Friday. â€śThe blood conflict had lasted too long. Us Saudis and all Gulf States plus Egypt and Jordan realize that the age of going to war with Israel is over.â€ť
Pointing to â€śthe advantages of normalizing relations,â€ť he argued that â€śthe whole Arab world could benefit from it,â€ť Globes reported.
The Saudi diplomat told Globes that â€śIsraeli technology is very advanced and the Arab world, including those who hate you, looks at Israel in admiration due to this success and hopes to copy it.â€ť...

The following would be a good temporary solution anyway. Because God has a permanent one in the works. As some of you fellows already mentioned

We Dispensationalists would have no problem with that, John of UK, because people who kill off journalists like the Saudi Arabians do can't be trusted. Those leopards are not going to change their spots.

No problem. The Bible is very clear that there will be at some stage, and we can actually see this happening now, an alliance between Iran (the leader of Shia Islam), Turkey (a non-Arab Sunni state that wants to regain its lost Caliphate, that before the 1st World War, ruled Israel, what is now Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states, and was not popular in the region), and Russia, (a â€śChristianâ€ť Eastern Orthodox country, though with a powerful Muslim minority and all the â€śStanâ€ť Muslim nations which branched off from it, which needs natural gas and warm ports), as well as the chaotic states of Libya and what is now North Sudan, that will invade Israel, primarily for booty and the spoils of war, but also of course in the case of the Muslims for religious reasons, while Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf states stand on the sidelines, and protest, (though donâ€™t actually come to help Israel). God will supernaturally destroy these armies and utterly confound them. This is in Ezekiel 38 and 39, and will be literally, not allegorically fulfilled.
Interesting development. With tensions with Iran elevated, one might imagine that the Sunnis might feel like they are being dragged into the Arab vs Israel thing should Iran attack Israel as they have threatened in the past. That would deflate an attempt by the Shia in Iran and Syria to take a leadership role in the Arab world by making such an attack.
So much of this is about jealousy and political wrangling. Arabs jealous of Israeli tech, sunnis and Shia competing vor prestige and leadership, The Saudis jealously guarding their leadership role in the region. Clearly this isn't about loving one's neighbor as oneself, which starts with loving the Lord the God with all your heart, soul, and mind...
