Saudi Arabia, Israel's Ally?

Common knowledge says that Israel MUST strike at Iran to prevent the Iranians from developing a nuclear weapon.

Common knowledge says that Israel MUST fly over Iraq to do so. In fact, stories have been written for years about Israel negotiating with the US to fly through Iraqi air space.

Not so much. Common knowledge seems to be wrong. Look at the map.

To fly across Iraq, Israelis would also have to fly over Jordan or Syria. That's not going to happen.

However, Israel's ally, Saudi Arabia....

Yes, Saudi Arabia, has possibly given Israel permission to overfly their country for a strike.

From the Times Online UK:
“The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way,” said a US defence source in the area. “They have already done tests to make sure their own jets aren’t scrambled and no one gets shot down. This has all been done with the agreement of the [US] State Department.”

Sources in Saudi Arabia say it is common knowledge within defence circles in the kingdom that an arrangement is in place if Israel decides to launch the raid.
Now, the question of the day is, "would it be possible for Israel's Air Force be able to take down the program? "

Well, that question, and why did this get published? Wouldn't it have been better to have been kept a surprise?

I wonder why we need to have the Israeli's do our work for us. We have been at war with Iran since 1979. We haven't declared war, but, they did.

If Israel strikes Iran, we should be there with them. A better solution would be to support the democratic forces within Iran, but, with this cabal in power in Washington, that's not going to happen. And President Obama won't support Israel if he doesn't have to....
