Biden Says Saudi Visit About Israel, Not Gas Prices

Illustrative Image

The President did not commit to a trip to the Mideast kingdom but said any visit would be about security, not energy

Written by

President Joe Biden answered questions about his potential visit to Saudi Arabia. Biden said that a meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) would be about Israeli security, not energy. While Axios reported the trip would come in mid-July, Biden did not commit to making the trip.

Speaking with reporters outside of Air Force One on Sunday, Biden said, “It happens to be a larger meeting taking place in Saudi Arabia. That’s the reason I’m going. And it has to do with national security for them – for Israelis.” He continued, “I have a program, anyway. It has to do with much larger issues than having to do with the energy price.”

The President did not commit to making the trip. Biden replied, “No. Not yet,” to a question about finalizing the planned visit. However, Axios reported speaking with three Israeli officials who said Biden would be in Israel on July 14 and 15 before traveling to Saudi Arabia.

Biden has met heavy criticism for his planned meeting with MbS. As a candidate, Biden pledged to make Saudi Arabia a “pariah” state and hold MbS accountable for the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Since taking office, Biden has continued to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia and aid the country’s war in Yemen.

When the White House first floated the idea of a meeting between Biden and MbS in March, oil production was at the top of the agenda. The proposed visit was met with objections from progressive Democrats and Republicans. Biden may now be attempting to downplay discussions with MbS about energy policy to reduce criticism.

The Zionist pet Pig just announced who his bosses are. He will fly all the way not to talk about how to ease inflation at home but discuss the security of a few Barbarians that cannot live in peace with neighbors.

Well stupid, nobody gives a fuck about Israel nor some shithole country called under some long dead dickhead’s nickname. That includes all the imbeciles living in those countries. It is all about class/cast warfare. Both external and internal warefare within cast. So called West, kebabs, beaners, chicoms are ruled by BSers (aka journalist-propagandist) cast/class currently. They were pretty close to getting this One World Order through globalization. But it fell apart like a house of cards without any push. What you see is just their desperation. All those countries will fall apart because this BSers ruling class is being led on their Death march. Ship is sinking and there is nowhere to jump for these rats.

Israel wants Saudi air space so they can attack Iran. Saudi to vulnerable because the Houthis alone can disable air bases

Israel wont attack Iran. They’ll get their goyim to do it for them. Haven’t we learned from Ukraine that Jews only cause wars, they don’t fight in them.

The zionazis don’t fight because they are not able to, plus the fact that they are cowards who will kill unarmed journalists and women and children and get away with it. They don’t have good athletes or or world champion boxers, just cowards.

Jews too busy smoking weed, jerking off. It’s part of their religion.

Not really – they have free access from Turk-isis-stan and Azerbaijan, both are lapdogs of the West and pigs of Zion.

You people forgot about what Turk-isis are like or what? “U.S. officials believe that the Israelis have gained access to airbases in Azerbaijan.”

In 2009, the deputy chief of mission of the U.S. embassy in Baku, Donald Lu, sent a cable to the State Department’s headquarters in Foggy Bottom titled “Azerbaijan’s discreet symbiosis with Israel.” The memo, later released by WikiLeaks, quotes Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev as describing his country’s relationship with the Jewish state as an iceberg: “nine-tenths of it is below the surface.”

Why does it matter? Because Azerbaijan is strategically located on Iran’s northern border and, according to several high-level sources I’ve spoken with inside the U.S. government, Obama administration officials now believe that the “submerged” aspect of the Israeli-Azerbaijani alliance — the security cooperation between the two countries — is heightening the risks of an Israeli strike on Iran.

In particular, four senior diplomats and military intelligence officers say that the United States has concluded that Israel has recently been granted access to airbases on Iran’s northern border. To do what, exactly, is not clear. “The Israelis have bought an airfield,” a senior administration official told me in early February, “and the airfield is called Azerbaijan.”

Azerbaijan is scared of Iran so much they would sell their whole country to be “protected”.

Turk-isis-stan is just Turk-isis-stan, was and still is a lapdog of the West and the West is a lapdog of Zion.

Of course it is. Israel, Jew worship, and homosexuality are the most important thing for Americans.
