Saudi King Was Not Informed Of Netanyahu’s Visit & Meeting With MbS

Some fascinating new details have emerged regarding last Sunday’s (11/22) unprecedented visit of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Saudi Arabia.

First to recap, amid widespread reports that the Saudis will be the next Arab country to normalize ties with the Jewish state, after the UAE and Bahrain were the first to do so, Netanyahu met with crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman (MbS) the Saudi city of Neom. It was also in the presence of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

This was reported as a “covert meeting” – also given Riyadh officially denies it took place while it was widely acknowledged in Israeli and international press. The two leaders reportedly discussed joint efforts to counter Iran, an issue which already saw intelligence and operations sharing in places like Syria.

Reuters on Friday released new bombshell information alleging the whole meeting with Netanyahu was done without the approval or even knowledge of the Saudi head of state, King Salman bin Abdulaziz.

The Times of Israel also underscored that “Saudi Arabia’s King Salman was reportedly kept out of the loop about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s secretive trip to the kingdom this week for talks with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.” And further:

Quoting a Saudi source and a foreign diplomat in Riyadh, Reuters reported Friday that normalization with Israel appeared off the table as long as the Saudi monarch is alive — an analysis also made Thursday by a senior Israeli source cited by Israeli TV.

Given the king’s age and increased reported senility, MbS has in recent years acted as de facto head of the kingdom, but it remains an incredibly bold move (the meeting with Israel’s leader) especially given King Salman is said to be against any ‘normalization’ with Israel.

And then there’s this incident from thie G-20 the prior week… the video was said to have been intentionally leaked:

“A video was leaked during the G20 summit which showed MbS correcting the confused king’s recollection, a leak which sources said was intentional,” according to Reuters.

It appears MbS plans to further sideline his father especially when it comes to foreign policy, relying on the ‘poor health’ angle to argue Salman is incapable of making crucial decisions as official head of state.

As acknowledged by the Saudi media and Falasha diaspora, MBS was raised as a Zionist by his Ethiopian Jew mother, just like Sisi is a Moroccan Jew. It just shows how the Sephardic and Mizrahi Jews have infested Arab states and are subverting Arab societies,.

Assad must stay

What a fucked up bunch of people lmao

The Headcutters are Zionist Khazars hiding in plain sight pretending to be Arab, and Muslim.

MBS is nothing but a fuking ape puppet.
As the saying goes “Arabs can’t pull up their pants”. That is (Wahhabi States).

Jens Holm

Robert Ferrin

Perhaps he just likes to lump you all together you and MBS make such a lovely pair.!!!

well if you found out that your son was befriended by a prime slime like kushner, would you approve, would you like it. no. even if the prime slime offered nuke technology as a gift for the friendship, Iran needs to get in touch with kim jung un pronto. missile ready nukes preaddressed tel aviv. a few dozens or more. payment in oil. good solid iranian heavy or iranian light via China and netanyahu should start worrying about his so far non-existent neck, soon to be stretched to the limit.
