Op-ed:
Two Rotten Peas in One Very Rotten Pod

By: Diane Sori

“There will be hell to pay for Obama’s critics in the second term.”
- the words of puppet master Valerie Jarrett to all who oppose Obama's socialist and islamic agenda

OK...let's get something straight right up front...Barack HUSSEIN Obama is indeed a muslim. He surrounds himself with muslims...his actions and words confirm he is a muslim...and NO church in America has any record of him ever having converted to Christianity.

Now with that said it must be understood how this man has allowed our American government to be infiltrated by the enemy...and YES...muslims at this point in time are indeed America's enemy. And I do NOT want to hear 'it's NOT all muslims' because guess what...it is...for where are the so-called moderate muslim voices condemning the actions of the extremists...save for a mere handful they remain silent...and if you do NOT condemn you condone...period.

Now let's remember that Obama is the very man...who through the fiasco known as the Arab Spring...actually aided in and allowed the rise to power of islamic terrorist groups in the Middle East, most notable at this point in time being ISIS. And he is also the man who allowed federal government positions of importance to be filled by members of the Muslim Brotherhood...a designated terrorist group in its own right. And with them now holding positions of power, it's in-your-face-obvious how U.S. policy has undergone a drastic 180 degree turn to outright supporting those who shall we say, behave very badly, while at the same time throwing our allies aside...especially Israel.

Cases in point and these are but a few...remember just as relations with Libya were somewhat normalizing Obama threw his support to the al-Qaida backed militias opposing Gaddafi's secular government (Gaddafi had renounced terrorism and was aiding the West with intelligence)...remember Benghazi and the could only have come from him 'stand down order'...remember his support for Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood puppet President Mohammed Morsi and how it took a populist uprising and a military coup to remedy that 'so-called' unfortunate situation...remember his still on-going support and sending of our taxpayer dollars to al-Qaida, ISIS, and Muslim Brotherhood linked 'so-called' rebels in Syria...and remember too his announcing our dates of withdrawal from the Iraqi and Afghan war theaters which gave America's enemies...his blood brethren...the time they needed to lay low, regroup, and move forward.

And always remember his continuing refusal to call the terrorism now gripping the world what it truly is...muslim islamic terrorism...key words being 'muslim' and 'islamic'...key words that describe exactly who Barack HUSSEIN Obama is.

Yeah...Barack HUSSEIN Obama...the man who thinks the most beautiful sound in the world is the muslim call to prayer...is a muslim alright and so also believed to be is a certain key member serving as his Senior Advisor...that being puppet master Valerie Jarrett.

Born in Iran in 1956 to American expatriate parents working as doctors in the aftermath of the CIA-assisted MI6 coup that deposed Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh (a champion of secular democracy who resisted foreign domination especially in his push to nationalize Iran's oil industry), and with Farsi as her mother tongue, this most vile woman held top positions in local Chicago government, politics, and business, and now with the official titles...but with her NEVER having been vetted or confirmed by Senate hearings...of 'Senior Advisor' and 'Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement,' Valerie Jarrett's hands are deep into every major and minor decision this miserable excuse of a president makes.

In fact, it's been rumored that Valerie Jarrett tells Obama what each and every one of his decisions will be, who he can or cannot appoint to government positions, and she probably does so while dining with the first family in their private quarters most each and every night. And the decisions...besides critical policy decisions...
include her cattily telling Obama who’s loyal to him and who’s NOT...who he should see or NOT see when visiting a foreign country...and which foreign leaders he is 'allowed' to invite to the White House and who must at all costs be kept out...as in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

And Valerie Jarrett...just like her boss...is NOT only (I believe) an American traitor, but like Obama is a true islamic sympathizer. A freely admitted socialist and progressive with decidedly communist leanings, her goals are every bit as nefarious as Obama’s, and that includes her sharing his wish to 'fundamentally change' our beloved America into something totally unrecognizable to 'We the People'...to 'fix-America' if you will to be more like the rest of the world...to be part of the caliphate as the end game.

As unrecognizable to us as her anything but pro-American background now comes her belief that Obama was elected president to engineer social change. Simply put, Jarrett's communist/socialist views lean most decidedly to the communist side courtesy of her parents being communist sympathizers, her family having intermarried (Valerie Jarrett is black) into the ever-so nefarious Bill Ayers family along with her grandfather and ex-father-in-law's involvement with Frank Marshall Davis, the former head of the Communist Party USA and who some believe is Obama's true daddy. And oh yes...many claim it was Valerie Jarrett herself who introduced Michelle to Obama...introduced my eye...who 'arranged' this sham of a marriage between two racially-driven people who hate their black selves...in Obama's case his half black self...as much as they hate white people...as much as they hate this country.

Vicious little circle isn't it...and it gets better...how's this for a bit of background and I only touch the surface, but know that Obama's and Jarrett's ties run deep...as do her ties to any and everything corrupt emanating from this White House. In fact, at Obama's insistence, Jarrett sits in on National Security Council meetings, meetings on the economy, on the budget, and on foreign policy. And get this, Jarrett, who outwardly supports the Muslim Brotherhood's agenda, is also 'point man' for the administration in meetings with muslim activists, and she routinely, albeit 'privately' (as in what is she hiding), meets with muslim and Arab-American leaders and advocates at the White House to discuss and share policy information, as well as briefing them on health care legislation, foreign policy, the economy, immigration issues, and critical national security information. I call that 'aiding and abetting the enemy'...I call that treason.

And like others of her ilk...as in the Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson mold...Valerie Jarrett, a typical Chicago lawyer, built her career lining her pockets by taking advantage of her own people. While working in Chicago this anything but noble women was what we call a slumlord while at the same time working as a 'supposed' reformer... sounds akin to Obama's community organizing now doesn't it. And here's a shocker....her slum project was in... surprise...surprise...former State Senator Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s Senatorial district. And it was he who helped Jarrett secure federal funding for said slum... Grove Parc Plaza. And as the CEO of Habitat Co., which managed Grove Parc Plaza, her mismanagement led to the complex being seized by the federal government after inspectors found the conditions 'unlivable.' And this in turn led to then Chicago Mayor Daily (the second Mayor Daily) to fire her sorry butt after a scandal erupted over Jarrett's role in misuse of of the very public funds Obama helped her secure for this, among other things, 'unlivable' public housing project...for this slum.

And this woman is now Obama's 'right-hand-man' if you will...one piece of trash advising another piece of trash on important issues facing our country...and doing so from a strictly islamist point of view as they work together to make America ever weaker on the world stage.

And advise Obama...more like order Obama...she does...most times to serve her own evil purposes, which thankfully sometimes backfire on her. An angry black woman...just like Michelle...it was Jarrett who told Obama he needed to force a showdown with Republicans over ObamaCare as part of her so-'called' strategy to regain Democratic control of the House...which obviously failed. Also having Jarrett's marks all over it are the overly-expensive, unworkable, and much hated anything but health care plan known as ObamaCare complete with its 'death panels' and HHS mandate requiring all religious groups and institutions to fund both abortion drugs and contraception. And it was Jarrett who insisted Obama allocate the $535 million taxpayer-funded loan guarantee to Solyndra...and we all know how that one turned out.

But it's her successes of sorts that are truly dangerous, and they come by way of her close ties to the Iranian government. Remember it was Valerie Jarrett who got Obama to fire most if NOT all competent administration appointees and replace them with pro-islamist sorts...do the names of supposed muslim converts John Brennan and Chuck Hagel ring a bell. And of course she did so that she could orchestrate and control, through her puppet Obama, the Iranian nuclear talks to work in favor of her birth country. In fact, Jarrett is alleged to have held secret talks in Bahrain with representatives of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's government for a year before the formal negotiations in Geneva began. And her goal...and let's be honest here...was to work it so that at the talks Kerry would sign-off on whatever Iran wanted...which on Obama's orders...on her orders actually...he did. Iran did after all get to continue their uranium enrichment program...that was worked out during those secret talks...and now have the upper hand in the current round of anything but disarmament talks...all courtesy of Valerie Jarrett pulling Obama's strings.

But even with all the power Jarrett wields, I do need to make one thing clear NO matter that the conspiracy sorts might NOT like it...Valerie Jarrett did NOT issue the order to 'stand down' in Benghazi because she had nor does she continue to have any legal or Constitutional authority to do so. And NO general, admiral, or ranking officer loyal to the Constitution would accept any order from her to 'stand down.' It was Obama himself who gave that order...period.

But the bottom line remains that Valerie Jarrett is the most dangerous and vindictive woman in America today for it's she using radical political and social propaganda...aided by the mainstream media of course...who actually makes Obama's decisions for him...which he than as president implements...decisions that include knowingly sabotaging our economy and helping to make our beloved America less safe. It's Valerie Jarrett who directs Obama's Marxixt/socialist agenda that equates to big government controlling every aspect of our lives...and it's Valerie Jarrett...power hungry ego-maniacal narcissist that she is...who feeds into and actually directs Obama's wish to do away with the country our Founders envisioned and to replace it with a sharia ruled islamic theocracy.

But being kept from Obama as he revels in a clueless reality that exists in his mind only is that it's with Valerie Jarrett herself as queen bee and with him as NOTHING but a lowly worker bee in-waiting.

WASHINGTON — The United States paused the resale of US-made military helicopters by Israel to the Nigerian government for its fight against Boko Haram last summer, according to Abuja.
The transfer of such aircraft requires a review, Obama administration officials told The Jerusalem Post, in order to determine its “consistency with US policy interests.”

Facebook Enforces Sharia, Bans “Anti-Islamic” Pages Rather Than Face Turkish Ban

Pamela Geller / Bare Naked Islam

Earlier today, I reported that a Turkish court ordered Facebook to block pages that insulted Islam. In response, It is somehow ironic that the younger generation raised on leftist propaganda in academia and in the culture are so eager to utterly relinquish our freedoms without so much as fight. The hippies and bippies and free love gave us totalitarianism and subjugation.

Free love. It made whores of women,  broke our homes and turned our men into women. Case in point: Mark Zuckerberg. All his speechifying about freedom of speech and freedom of expression and without so much as an internal struggle, he betrayed the freedom loving people of Turkey. Take a stand, man.

What a cowardly punk ….. with enormous power.

THE MORNING after President Obama's State of the Union address, Politico had a story on how Republicans had responded to one contentious issue. The headline: "Priebus struggles to explain GOP immigration messages."

That would be Reince Priebus, the Republican Party chairman. His "struggle" was to clarify why Iowa's new senator, Joni Ernst, said nothing at all about immigration in her 10-minute reply to the president, whereas Florida Representative Carlos Curbelo, in a Spanish-language version of the GOP response, urged Obama to work with Republicans "to create permanent solutions for our immigration system, to secure our borders, [and] modernize legal immigration." Good thing Priebus wasn't asked about the formal Tea Party response to the president's speech, delivered by another Florida Republican, Rep. Curt Clawson, or he'd have had still more reason to squirm. Speaking in English and Spanish, Clawson called pointedly for "embracing … legal immigrants, and the millions waiting in line legally to begin their own American Dream."

Then there was Iowa Representative Steve King's rude Twitter slam against Obama for inviting "a deportable" to sit in the House gallery as a guest of the First Lady. That was a reference to 20-year-old Ana Zamora, a Texas student who was brought illegally to the United States as an infant, and who benefited from Obama's 2012 executive order indefinitely extending legal status to thousands of similarly situated immigrants.

Though King's tweet wasn't an official GOP statement, it created some instant awkwardness for the Republican presidential hopefuls heading to Iowa for a Saturday "freedom summit" hosted by … King. When one of those hopefuls, Senator Marco Rubio, was asked about King's nasty tone, his answer was careful: "We have to always remind ourselves that we're talking about human beings with hopes and dreams and families."

Plainly, the clearest element of the GOP message on immigration is that the GOP has no clear message on immigration. The subject was barely mentioned in the president's address, but that didn't stop the loyal opposition from once again getting into an intramural tangle over it.

But is that a bad thing?

For any large political party, a boisterous battle over policy and principle is a sign of fitness, not feebleness. While "diversity" is a sacred cow on the left, it is on the right where real diversity — diversity of ideas and viewpoints — has most often been showcased. In the 1970s, Ronald Reagan famously debated William F. Buckley Jr. on whether the United States should relinquish the Panama Canal. In the 1980s, Bob Dole and Newt Gingrich fiercely clashed over supply-side tax cuts. More recently, Republicans have gone at each other over war in Iraq, education reform, and "enhanced interrogation."
According to a new Pew Research Center survey, Americans have little trust in the government as a whole, but have high favorability ratings for several individual agencies. Seventy percent surveyed approve of the Centers for Disease Control, and 68 percent approve of the job done by NASA. The IRS and the NSA had the lowest favorability ratings, with 45 and 51 percent, respectively, having a favorable view of those agencies.
The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted Jan. 7-11 among 1,504 adults, finds that 70% have a favorable view of the CDC, which came under criticism last fall for its handling of the outbreak of the Ebola virus. Nearly as many (68%) have a favorable view of NASA, and 65% hold a favorable view of the Department of Defense.
While overall favorable ratings for most of the agencies tested have changed little over time, there has been a sharp decline in positive views of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Currently, 52% have a favorable view of the VA, down 16 points since October 2013. The agency has been widely faulted for delays in health care for veterans; the scandal led to the ouster last year of VA Secretary Eric Shinseki.
Among Republicans, the agency viewed most favorably was the Department of Defense, followed by the CIA and NASA. The CIA was the only federal agency that Republicans favored more than Democrats.

While the CDC got a bad rap late last year when the Ebola virus was discovered in Dallas, there has been no major outbreak of the disease and the agency did its job well containing diagnosed cases, and I'll give them credit for that. NASA has had its budget slashed, yet they've still accomplished some pretty amazing feats and made important discoveries.

Lindsey Graham: Obama's Foreign, Domestic Policies Disappointing 

NEWSMAX

President Barack Obama's foreign and domestic policies are failures despite his positive words in Tuesday's State of the Union address, South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday on "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York.

"The war he described on the foreign policy front doesn't exist," Graham said, noting that al-Qaida has not been decimated and, "We did not roll back ISIL (the Islamic State) in Syria."

Story continues below.
http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/lindsey-graham-obama-foreign-policies/2015/01/25/id/620573/?ns_mail_uid=32379927&ns_mail_job=1605086_01262015&s=al&dkt_nbr=siaqgzac

Graham just met with members of the Free Syrian Army a week ago, and was told that the Islamic State is "stronger than ever, selling oil and wheat to Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime, Graham said.Graham said Obama's failure to call the war on terror a religious war is "a huge mistake," he said.

"The [American] friends in the region told me to my face it’s better to be an American enemy than it is to be her friend, because you [America] respect your enemies," he said.

Both Arabs and Israelis told him that if the United States makes the nuclear deal with Iran that the White House is working on, there will be a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.

Israel already has a nuclear weapon, but none of its Arab neighbors felt threatened or sought their own weapon, Graham told host John Catsimatidis. A nuclear Iran does make them feel they'll need their own nuclear weapons, he said.

The current low oil prices are aimed at hurting Iran, Graham said, to force them to negotiate a deal the Saudis like better, he said.

"The Saudi Arabians told us in no uncertain terms that they will not sit on the sidelines and watch Iran get a nuclear capability without matching it — and that they are very disappointed in American leadership," he said. The Saudis have volunteered their army to go into Syria to fight the Islamic State and Assad, but they want the United States to go with them, he added.

Turning to House Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress on the Iran deal, Graham said he "couldn’t think of a better person" to explain the situation.

The invitation reportedly angered the White House because Boehner did not advise President Barack Obama ahead of time.

Graham said Obama's State of the Union was "a liberal’s dream and an average American’s nightmare," because of his big plans to fund community college education and offer tax cuts while raising taxes on upper incomes, including the inheritance tax.

Graham called Obama's domestic plans "unsustainable" and proves he didn't pay attention to the midterm elections, which gave both chambers of Congress Republican majorities.

Obama says he wants to work with Republicans, but threatened multiple vetoes on GOP initiatives, he said. Graham told Catsimatidis that it is himself who has shown the ability to reach across party lines to get things done.

He noted that he faced six Republicans in the 2014 primary because he worked with Democrats on immigration. He also said he voted for Obama's liberal Supreme Court justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan "because I thought they were qualified Supreme Court nominees."

Graham has said he is considering a run for president in 2016, and will make that decision soon.

84% of “Palestinians” believe Israel was behind Paris jihad massacres

charlie-hebdo-officesIslamic supremacists never, ever take responsibility for the evils done by Muslims in the name of Islam and in accord with Islamic texts and teachings. It is always the non-Muslim’s fault.

“Israel was behind terror attacks in France,” by Nan Jacques Zilberdik, Palestinian Media Watch, January 25, 2015:
Following the terror attacks against the Charlie Hebdo magazine and a Jewish store in which Muslim terrorists killed 17 people in France earlier this month, columnists writing for the official Palestinian Authority daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida have claimed that Israel was behind the attacks.
This view is shared by the vast majority of Palestinians, according to a poll conducted by Ma’an (an independent Palestinian news agency). The poll  found that 84.4% support the claim that “the operation (i.e., terror attack) was suspicious, and that Israel may be behind it,” while “only 8.7% believed that the murder of the French [citizens] in Paris was a natural result of the spread of Islamic extremism in Europe.” [Ma’an, Jan. 19, 2015]
The writers of the official PA daily have argued that Mossad, the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service, planned the attacks because Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders want to encourage Jewish immigration and take “revenge on European governments… because of their… support for… an independent Palestinian state.” [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 15, 2015] (Longer excerpts of all quoted articles appear below)
One regular columnist, Muwaffaq Matar, argued that because Netanyahu “wishes to realize the myth of the ‘Jewishness of Israel'” and encourage immigration, the attacks against Jews in France and elsewhere in Europe were “no coincidence, but a carefully executed and fully controlled plan.” He further argued that these claims were true because “‘Netanyahu’s Jewish State’ was the only one to benefit” from these attacks. [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 15, 2015]
Netanyahu “trades with the blood of the 17 victims of the Charlie Hebdo newspaper and of the supermarket,” wrote another regular columnist, Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul. He pointed out that Netanyahu wanted to “exploit the terrorism that struck some French Jews” to encourage them “to immigrate to Israel.” The writer claimed that “Turkish sources, including intelligence and the mayor of Ankara” determined that the attacks were “planned by the Israeli Mossad.” [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 14, 2015]
Similarly, a journalist, Akram Atallah, interviewed on official PA TV claimed that “in the past, the Israeli Mossad carried out operations (i.e., terror attacks): It bombed synagogues in order to force the Jews to emigrate,” and that “the operation (i.e., the terror attack on Charlie Hebdo) served Israel’s demographic [interests], for the Israeli media and government bodies predicted yesterday that 10,000 French Jews would immigrate to Israel.” [Official PA TV, Jan. 12, 2015]
Another writer, Yahya Rabah, claimed that Israel is behind “all the terrorist groups in the region,” trains them and provides them with weapons, and hinted that Israel, therefore, was behind the attacks in France:
“We have seen how Israeli terrorism in all its forms… is what grants patronage to all the terrorist groups in the region. Eventually, we have seen that terror[ists] have begun to receive training, weapons and perhaps [even] intelligence from Israel. Therefore, many believe that there was more to the last wave of terrorism in France than [just] two young Muslims. This was an [attempt to] target the role of France… [which voted] in favor of the Palestinian-Arab proposal at the [UN] Security Council last month!” [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 11, 2015]…

American Muslim group attacks "American Sniper," demands Eastwood and Cooper denounce fictional "islamophobia"

Pamela Geller / Atlas Shrugs

One of the foundational principles of the Bush Doctrine was/is the oft-repeated dictum, "You are either with us or against us." Little did President Bush know that the American Muslim community was .... against us. George Bush believed that the moderates in the Muslim world would denounce/destroy the devout ("radical"), a war within Islam that never took place. Imagine Bush's dismay when he discovered that no one was behind him, like John Belushi in Animal House when he goes running out the front door shouting, "Who's with me?!?," only to discover that he is utterly alone. 

The faked hate narrative that Muslim groups and leaders use is now the default talking point any time that jihad or patriotism, for that matter, is being discussed. If...


    
Op-ed:
Saudi Arabia at a Crossroads

By: Diane Sori

“His Highness Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and all members of the family and the nation mourn the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, who passed away at exactly 1 a.m. this morning.”
- Official Saudi government statement announcing the death of King Abdullah

Simply stated...longtime 'supposed' U.S. ally King Abdallah bin Abdulaziz al Saud of Saudi Arabia has died, his half-brother Crown Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz, is now King, and his brother Prince Muqrin has been named the new Crown Prince and royal heir.

But in these times of muslim islamic terrorists... some funded by certain factions within the royal House of Saud itself * (remember too that Saudi Arabia helped fund the 9/11 terrorists**)...the death of King Abdullah...a strong leader more moderate in his political and religious leanings than any of his predecessors...can mean that some major policy changes are in the making, especially towards the West, and especially if Salman proves to be a weak leader.

And the King's death also raises serious concerns about stability in the entirety of the Middle East especially if Abdullah's move towards modernity now gets challenged by the leaders of a large segment of the populace still stuck in the 7th century...especially when Wahhabism (a strict form of islam) still dominates in regards to all things religious and social...and especially when King Abdullah was somewhat of a friend towards Israel as both were allied in opposing Iran's nuclear ambitions, stopping Iranian attempts to secure regional dominance, and shared disappointment with Obama’s Iran policy.

But in regards to the West, and most specifically with our still being dependent on foreign oil for a large portion of our energy needs, one has to wonder if the death of the King Abdullah and the ascension of Salman to the throne will have us seeing any changes in Abdullah's oil policies. Even with Saudi oil officials blaming weak global economic growth for the still plummeting prices...while oil executives here in this country claim the Saudis have purposely driven down the price of oil to slow and halt our current boom in oil shale drilling and production...Saudi Arabia remains the dominant Middle East oil producer and now King Salman has said he will continue with current oil policies.

And while Saudi oil minister Ali al-Naimi (who at the last November's OPEC meeting resisted calls by Algeria, Venezuela, and Iran to cut oil supplies) also sees NO reason to alter what currently works, the fact remains that too much crude oil and falling demand have driven down the price at the pump...have driven down the price per barrel. But know that even in Saudi Arabia everything is about profit so do NOT expect prices to remain low for long even with a new King.

And as expected, immediately after the announcement of King Abdullah's death, U.S. crude futures rose more than $2 per barrel but have since stabilized. And with Salman's trying to assure global energy markets that Saudi Arabia would work hard to assure that other top oil exporters maintain a high level of oil production to meet increasing global energy needs, hopefully Obama's visit to Saudi Arabia tomorrow to pay his respects will NOT throw a wrench into what they are doing, and hopefully John 'Swiftboat' Kerry will stay out of Saudi Arabia's affairs as well.

Besides the question of oil, other issues must be addressed by the new King...key among them being how will he address the ever-growing issue of terrorism...muslim islamist terrorism.

Expected to maintain the kingdom’s alliance with the U.S., Salman's judgment comes into question as it has been rumored that he suffers from dementia. So can he be trusted to rightly deal with today's all-important issue of terrorism and its ramifications...I truly do NOT know...but I do know that if good people like oil minister al-Naimi were to be forced out of their positions we could see Saudi Arabia making a hard to turn to the ISIS left which would then change the entire dynamics of the Middle East as it now stands, and know it will NOT be for the better.

"We will, with God's will and power, adhere to the straight path this country has followed since its establishment," Salman has said but does he have the means, support, and much need mental capability to do so.

Saudi Arabia has to date been somewhat of a stabilizing force in the region, but now with the entirety of the Middle East in turmoil one has to wonder if the 80-year old Salman can keep his country on that same track. Remember, Iraq daily battles ISIS militants, the Sunni-led government in Yemen has just been toppled, and Iran is again raising its ugly head...and all geographically surround Saudi Arabia.

And Saudi Arabia has always been rightfully distrusting of Iran and fears them becoming a nuclear power as much as we and Israel do. Abdullah was somewhat able to keep Iran in check but now with the U.S. on the verge of making yet another 'so-called' overture to Iran (thanks to our traitor-in-chief.) the Saudis have much to be concerned about. Always beating the drum of wiping Israel off the map and chanting death to the 'Great Satan' ad-nauseum, some are now being fooled by Iran's President Hassan Rouhani having toned down the rhetoric somewhat. And while we know clearly where Obama stands, we also thankfully know that Benjamin Netanyahu is NOT fooled by softer words, yet we still have to wonder if Salman is. So as Iran moves ever-closer to securing nuclear weapons behind everyone's backs while they talk softer words of peace, Saudi Arabia must NOT let its guard down, because Iran could hit them in the blink of an eye, and all their oil wells and money will do little if anything to stop them.

And what of Yemen and their relationship to Saudi Arabia now that their president and prime minister have resigned in what amounts to a coup...a coup some believe to have been orchestrated by Iran...the very country who stands to become the big winner from the goings-on in Yemen. A complicated situation in the making because that would mean that if the Houthis, whom Iran supports, were to take actual control of the government Shi'ites would be ruling a country that's mostly Sunni allowing for more instability than there already is, and could result in floods of people crossing over into Saudi Arabia as Yemen sits directly on Saudi Arabia's southern border. And with those people could come waves of terrorists, and one has to wonder if Salman can muster the loyalty and strength of the armed forces to if NOT repel them at least keep them in check.

Also remember, if the Houthis did control the government in Yemen, Yemen would then become the third pro-Iranian government ensconced in Arab countries (Iran, while islamic, is NOT an Arab country as Iranians are Persians), and that bodes very poorly where both Israel and a more moderate Arab country like Saudi Arabia are concerned. Also, just the establishment of yet another Shi'ite pro-Iranian government in the Middle East would ignite tensions NOT only in Yemen, but in most Sunni Arab states as well, thus opening the door for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP)...which is based in and operates out of Yemen...to become even more of a danger than they already are.

NOT good folks...NOT good at all...and if the rumors about Salman's health are true and he becomes an ineffectual leader, Saudi Arabia could become next on Iran's hit list...right after Israel and before the U.S.

So while King Abdullah did let his guard down a bit when he became somewhat distracted by the goings-on of the Obama-led Arab Spring...a disaster that actually allowed al-Qaeda in Iraq to morph into the even more dangerous than al-Qaeda 'Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant' otherwise known as ISIS...let's NOT forget that now King Salman must at all costs concern himself with stability and loyalty to the crown within his own country, because Saudi Arabia...much like Israel's reality...is on the way to becoming totally surrounded by those who wish them harm. And it's all because of Abdullah's ties to the U.S. and his push for modernization within the kingdom, which groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS believe undercut the moral authority of what should be a devout islamic monarchy...translation: which should adhere to the principals of strict islamic fundamentalism.

So only time will tell if King Salman can keep Saudi Arabia an ally of the U.S. or if they too will fall under the influence of those out to kill us all...and the ramifications of that happening are too sickening to even think about.

Iran vows to attack Israel from Judea and Samaria
