Arab League To Hold Urgent Meeting On Iran As Saudis Reportedly Mobilize Fighter Jets

The Arab League is set to hold an emergency meeting on Iran at Saudi Arabia's request, this according to Reuters and various regional sources, at a moment when Saudi fighter jets may be mobilizing for war in an attempted show of force. Egypt-based Ahram Online also reports further that the meeting will discuss "Iranian interference" in the region at League headquarters in Cairo, and other early unconfirmed reports indicate the meeting could come as early as next Sunday.

News of the Arab League extraordinary session comes as tensions are at breaking point as regional powers - especially Saudi Arabia and Israel - talk war against perceived Iranian expansion and domination in the Middle East.

Meanwhile, The Daily Star, citing the Baghdad Post, claims that Saudi Arabia has scrambled its air force for strikes in Lebanon: "Reports now state the Royal Saudi Air Force has placed its warplanes on alert to launch strikes as the region sits on a knife edge." The report accompanies undated footage of Saudi F-15's in aerial maneuvers over what is presumably a Saudi airfield.

The Daily Star adds the following accompanying the video:

The kingdom has mobilized its F-15 fighter jet fleet to launch a military operation against the Iranian-backed terrorist militia of Hezbollah in Lebanon, regional news website The Baghdad Post reports.

 

Saudi Arabia previously accused both Lebanon and Iran of committing an act of wars against it after rebels fired a missile at the King Khalid International Airport in the kingdom's capital of Riyadh.


Saudi Arabia has reportedly placed its air force on alert

However unlikely it is that the Saudis would take direct military action against Lebanon, the report reveals the legitimate fears of Lebanese citizens who are increasingly aware that their country has fallen in the cross hairs of an unusual alliance between Saudi Arabia, Israel, and anti-Iranian interests which see Hezbollah and pro-Iranian proxies as the number one threat and scapegoat for all of the region's problems. 

Iran is currently being scapegoated for just about all tensions which have exploded in the gulf over the past week, including the following:

  • the civil war in Yemen,
  • the Qatar economic blockade and isolation over accusations that it is "Iran friendly",
  • the latest civil unrest in Bahrain and the alleged bombing of a major oil pipeline there,
  • ratcheting up tensions with Israel in support of Hezbollah,
  • destabilizing Lebanon itself leading to PM Saad Hariri's "resignation" - all of this precipitating the Saudi "night of the long knives".

As many astute pundits have pointed out, it's now "blame Iran time" according to the official Saudi (and allies) narrative of events in order to set the stage for public support for potential military action against Iran.

Iran isn't being scapegoated as the prejudiced author states. Iran is a terror nation, and it has been since it took hundreds of American hostages for hundreds of days. They have spread terror across the globe through bombings, insurgencies, supplying weapons to terrorist regimes. Iran has spilled much blood around the world. There are so many Iaranians in jail for thinking differently than the Ayatollah. Time to liberate the good people of Iran from the chains of tyrrany.

‘I’m Proud to Be a Christian Zionist’: Steve Bannon Gets Standing O from Leading Jewish Organizationhttp://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/11/13/im-proud-to-be-a-chr… Zionist Organization of America’s annual awards gala gave Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon three standing ovations Sunday after the former White House chief strategist delivered a fiery speech praising President Donald Trump’s leadership in the Middle East and calling on America’s Jewish community “to bind together and work as partners” in his war against the GOP establishment.“It is time for us to act,” Bannon said, addressing the Jewish community and other American supporters of Israel, “and I believe the only way to act is not through moderation. I am not a moderate, I’m a fighter. And that’s why I’m proud to stand with the state of Israel. That’s why I’m proud to be a Christian Zionist. That is why I’m proud to be a partner of one of the greatest nations on earth and the foundation of the Judeo-Christian West.”Calling Trump “the strongest supporter of Israel, since Ronald Reagan,” Bannon recalled President Trump’s inauguration speech:“On the 20th of January, 2017 … President Trump said we will reinforce old alliances and form new ones to unite the civilized world against radical terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth.”

Been saying that Bannon is a ZIO-PIG for a long time, he has proved it over & over. He is "Controlled Opposition" The jew supremacists always play both sides of every coin. They have one devilish agenda and they care not what train or what direction its traveling as long as a piece of that demented agenda is being fulfilled. I quit Breitbart quite awhile back- its zio-controlled opposition, just another smoke & mirror show for the dumb deluded Christian-zionists.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3amdde78V7w

Bannon was just an actor to play the role of a white supremacist. With Trump filling his cabinet with Zionist wall street filth, they needed a distraction, so they put in Bannon.  True to form, Bannan was only there long enough to play his role, once they no longer needed the distraction, they got rid of him. Those who control us, the Zionist Jews, hate us, and they are masters of manipulation.

You can buy all the military hardware in the world, but if it's manned by low morale, low IQ, low loyalty troops all you're really buying is weapon caches to hand to your enemy. The KSA would be better served contracting a large PMC than relying on that band of incompetents they so generously refer to as a military. "Morale is to material as three is to one." -Napoleon Bonaparte

I don't watch the "news" because it is all about Jews pushing their propaganda about Iran, Russia, North Korea... I don't watch hollywood movies, because it is all about Jews pushing propaganda open borders, multiculturalism, warmongering, anti WHITE MALE, feminism... I don't vote on national elections, because it is just a show, made to give the appearance of democracy, but in reality is just installing another zionist puppet (Obama, Trump, Clinton, Reagan, Bush...)I use as little borrowing as possible, because I don't like feeding into the Jewish usury system I don't watch commercials because they are all about pushing anti white male propaganda, while painting women as gods....and I was tired of hearing about feminine hygiene and "girl power"I don't use Facebook or Twitter because they are both tools of Zionist manipulation, there was a reason the youth in Britain were the ones most against Britex, even though the youth are the ones most adversely effected by it. I always thought I would always be taking university classes forever, even after I completed my degrees. But after seeing what "higher ed" has becomes, I did my required work and never went back. Universities are western male hating feminist globalist shit holes, devoid of thought and reason, so beholden to Zionist endowments that demand certain anti American ideologies.   You get the point, America has been completely taken over by Zionist influence. In America money is king, that is by design, because those with the money want to make the rules. And those with the money are the Zionist Jews.

If you have a point make it, but what you said is not an argument, but an accusation.  What of my points Zionist, are not true, pick any statement I made and argue if you think it is not true. "Confirmation bias", asshole, is when hollywood pushes feminism, because they know bitches will buy into it. When hollywood pushes racism because they know blacks will buy into it. The whole aspect of Jewish zionist propaganda is build on expectations., demonizing Muslims, white men, Russians...

The only smart move they have is to blockade Iranian Oil. The only smart move the Iranians have is to bomb the Saudi Pipelines. That will surely get oil to $100 per barrel overnight.

The Saudis are aware that they cannot fight wars, look how badly they do. I think any decalration of war in the ME by KSA will be a texas 2 step to get the USA into a war with Iran.

Yea , a desperate play fraught with  uncertain outcomes . I have a feeling we might see the intense use of psycotronic weaponry , this might be the secret weapon use to immobilize the enemy once under attack . I wonder if the Iranians have a shield to this ? And if they strike Iran , then Nth Korea would also be hit . Perhaps that was what  Xi reference to getting miliary ready for live fire excersizes . Code words for mobilization . Its the Illuminatis last desperate throw of the dice .

How many are actually flyable?Pass the popcorn and lets see how long they last?Saudi has to fly over Israel to bomb Lebanon....highly unlikely everSaudi has to fly over Syria to bomb Lebanon.....highly unlikely without Russian permissionSaudi has to fly over the Gulf to attack Iran......and then can expect to have its military infrastructure destroyed by Iranian ICBM's in short order. Its just 120 miles :)Saudi's time in the limelight is over.If it starts awider Middle East war it will cease to exist in its current form If America sides with them against iran then the Straits of Hormuz will be closed indefinately, the the price of oil will hit the stratosphere and cause economic collapse across the Western world.Ya gotta love this shit LOL

The Saudi Barbarians are getting their second Vietnam in Yemen as the chanting Houthi Brothers prove yet again that fat fuck mercenaries with yankee death tech is no match for baggy pants desert patriots in flip flops who love to kick invaders' ass. So the fecal filled crypt of Saud is supposedly dumb enough to get sucked into a war with Iran because the khazarian mafia in occupied, apartheid Palestine told them and plan to get their Pentacon mutts to do the bleeding for them?

Yeah, I heard next week they gonna demonize Iran for fake Houti fired <<< an Iranian marked/smelling>>>missile that the Saud Airforce miraculously intercepted.This is a test of water for a witch hunt by Saudsan aka client proxy of I$I$rahell/U$A/...After the Syrian jihadist front of perpetual death and destruction embarrassingly failed and closed,as expected nothing shorter,lately, they are doing everything in their power not just to create another war but to take out Iran/Hezbollah/Lebanon/Syria/Yemen.... with alleged accusations that Iran isn't, no evidence whatsoever, except it's them who are the real culprits in the region.On contrary, it's Iran/Syria/Hezbollah/Russia/.. who are wiping out the west backed terrorist and unbalancing; for the west, this is RED-LINE, not complicated thing to comprehend why the world isn't seeing this?Where is Hariri televised 'first-time' interview in Saudi media, anybody watched it last night? He said his resignation was to protect his country against sanction from Saud and its ilk because of Hezbollah/Iran? influence in the country and its politics that Hariri failed to stop.Oops, I didn't see that coming,but only if the world has provided with both sides an equal chance to speak on media, that would be good and it's on everyone's decision why one goes to war.This is unfair, but it's wishful thing in the devil control world.So the whole thing is boiled down to one thing and one thing only, THE IRANIAN INFLUENCE, BEING TERROR GROUP SUPPORTING, HENCE.NEXT STOP, block Iran, and Blow Hezbollah-Lebanos/Houthis-Yemen/Syria/ in a way that pisses off  Iran to do something retaliatory or defending their national security.this where they get the excuse that so far Iran was wise enough not to give them.Fuck it, too much talk, why don't they just start the war with pretty straight talk like:"Iran has interfered our  little adventure of chopping head group expansion in taking Syria, how dare Iran"Arab league is a Saudi/I$I$rahell political sellout, nothing good will come out for Iran in their 'extraordinary' meeting, that tells everything one must know about the situation.Iran/Hezbollah you know what is coming and so the fix is already in, right? Don't fear some knows what you are fighting for, just prepare well.

Jews are fundamentally liars. They lie mercilessly even to themselves. Jews lie about everything. Meaning by everything literally “every single thing”. You can’t have a simple truth from a Jew. Even or the most insignificant thing. I guess there must be some psychiatric, anthropological and sociological explanations for that lying compulsive behavior. There’s no more racist and disgusting slogan than “the chosen people.” It looks like derived from that slogan, they are taught and trained in the synagogues not to try and do anything but oppress peoples. For that purpose they lie again and again. Jews give God a bad name

It's not enough that the jew supremacists control america's armies, they are now cajoling through nefarious means the arabs to also do their sick murderous deeds.While trump, the jew supremacists lap dog stands by like churchill and applauds from the not so sidelines.It is necessary to address the root cause of our people’s problems. The key destructive element is JUDAISM. All that stems from this are tools and weapons of Jewish controllers used to manipulate, undermine and destroy our societies.The most beguiling tool in the Jewish arsenal is their cunning psychological and financial manipulation. The scourge of Europe and wider populations for centuries Judaism named it Zionism in the 19th century and concealed it behind a nationalistic pretence. Now Jewish Zionist banking systems rob our people and enslave us to debt, combined with a Jewish political front this is the first line of their control. The other most influential tool is Communism invented by the Jew Karl Marx under the supervision of the Jew Moses Hess the philosophical father of Zionism. Already implemented by Jewish Bolsheviks Lenin and Trotsky to racially cleanse Europe of Europeans-the death toll in the Holodomor genocides alone was 16.5 millionCommunism remarketed as Cultural Marxism(political correctness) covers a wide spectrum. The focus is division from the importation of coloured colonisers and its corresponding Zionist media images of miscegenation (race mixing), to interracial disunity (Sectarianism) and sexual dysfunction (Feminism and Homosexuality).

PREDICTION: The US government will act on this geopolitical emergency in a manner that best suits Israel, and that Iran is guilty of (insert war crime, treaty violation, human rights abuse, "terrorist" act or diplomatic travesty here).

To strike Lebanon KSA would have to fly over Jordan (friend) and Syria (foe) at which point they would be shot down. Another option would be to use Israeli airspace, but that's unlikely. Maybe that's what the secret meeting was all about when the prince went to meet Netanyahu.It looks like KSA is having a similar tantrum as DNC/Hillary. Nothing is going their way. The result is implosion.

And as usual, they're using the wrong tools. F15s are excellent, as air superioty fighters, not as ground attack aircraft. Their pilots are badly trained, undiscplined, inexperienced (if they're using Saudis). MBS has made another stupid mistake. Will the Syrians finally get to use their S400 air defense? Or are the Americans conning the fool into a disaster so they stage their own Night of the Long Knives? MBS is very disliked by the army right now. We wait.
