Efraim Halevy on Saudi Arabia, Palestine and the USA

What is the next target for Bush and Blair, after Iraq?

Saudi Arabia - You are next?

May 27, 2004"There is more speculation about the possible collusion between al-Qaeda and Saudi Arabia."

The Shalom Center 04/28/05 has an article about Saudi Arabia.

Sharon's National Security Advisor (and former Mossad chief), Efraim Halevy said:"In a visit to the United States two weeks ago, I was told by several well-informed observers that should one of the more severe scenarios come to pass, the United States will have no choice but to deepen its presence in the Middle East. To that end, it will have to renew the draft, to ensure that there are enough forces to deal with developing situations in countries like Saudi Arabia."

The 'scenario' being talked about is upheaval in Saudi Arabia.

According to Halevy, the Saudis are demanding US action on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "In the eyes of the Saudi prince, the rise in the level of tension, violence and enmity in our conflict had the effect of significantly strengthening the extremists in his country and throughout the Arab world..."

To preserve their regime, the Saudi princes need Israeli-Palestinian peace, which can only be achieved with US help.

Halevy thinks that someday the US may side with the Saudis on the issue of Israeli-Palestine peace.
