Saudi Arabia Funds Israeli Mossad Anti-Iran Operations
A startling disclosure has been made about the unholy alliance between the illegal Zionist entity and the Wahhabi minority regime in Saudi Arabia to try to undermine the progress of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Former CBS News producer Barry Lando has recently written an investigative article titled "A Strange Alliance: Are the Saudis Bankrolling Israel's Mossad?" Lando does not reveal the identity of the person who revealed to him about the plot underway, and merely calls him “a friend, with good sources in Israel.”
Lando writes: The head of Israel's Mossad has made several trips to deal with his counterparts in Saudi Arabia, and one of the results is an agreement that the Saudis would bankroll the series of assassinations of several of Iran's top nuclear experts that have occurred over the past couple of years.
He further says: “The amount involved, my friend claims, was $1 billion dollars. A sum, he says, the Saudis considered cheap for the damage done to Iran's nuclear program.” Lando said although “the tale sounds preposterous, it makes eminent sense. The murky swamp of Middle East politics has nothing to do with the easy slogans and 30-second sound bites of presidential debates.” Israel and Saudi Arabia have at least one thing in common: neither country wants to allow the Islamic Republic of Iran to obtain nuclear capability. Lando noted that the claim of the strange alliance “also makes perfect sense", in view of the cyber attacks on their centrifuges suffered by the Iranians.
“A report earlier this year by Tel Aviv University cites Saudi Arabia as the last hope and defense line for Israel,” Lando wrote. “With most of Israel’s traditional allies in the region sent packing or undermined by the Arab Spring, the Saudis are the Jewish State’s last chance to protect its political interests in the Arab world.”
Lando has long experience on Iran. He recently wrote a book called "Web of Deceit: The History of Western Complicity in Iraq, from Churchill to Kennedy to George W. Bush.” He said he personally ran into American ignorance in 1980 when he was producing '60 Minutes'. “I was struck by the total inability of Americans—even at the highest level—to understand the emotions and history that drove the hatred of all things American that had exploded in Iran with the fall of the Shah,” Lando wrote. “Just up West 57th street from CBS News, for instance, was a huge billboard with the Image of Ayatollah Khomeini glowering down on New York. I suggested we do a report to give Americans a better idea of what was driving Iran’s revolutionaries and their feelings against the United States….I stitched together a tough report with Mike Wallace based on a series of interviews in New York and Washington.’ Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was charged by one interviewee “for turning a blind eye to the excesses of the Shah, and refusing to have any contact with the opposition groups.”
Lando also reported that classified US documents exposed by Iranian revolutionary students who took over the American embassy in Tehran for its espionage and indulgence in activities against diplomatic norms “showed that American diplomats based in Teheran had warned Washington months earlier of the threat of a possible fall of the US embassy, particularly if the US allowed the despised Shah to come to America for medical treatment, as the US ultimately did. Those warnings had been completely ignored by Washington.” However, before the program was broadcast, President Jimmy Carter called the president of CBS News “to try to convince him not to broadcast the report. It would, he said, undermine US negotiations with Iran at a very delicate time.” CBS did not agree to back down but agreed to change the report’s title from “Should the US Apologize?” to a more neutral “The Iran File.”
Lando says: “It was difficult to understand how our report could upset the negotiations. We were not revealing any secrets to Iran. The Iranians already knew well the role of the US in their own history. The people we were informing were 20 million Americans — who didn’t understand what was really roiling Iran. “And still don’t.”
Since the regime in Saudi Arabia is a poodle of the US, the unholy alliance between Riyadh and the Zionist entity is no surprise. It is also worth noting that a couple of years back, Wikileaks website had released what it called classified documents claiming that the Saudi Arabia had urged the US to attack Iran, and had reportedly called the Islamic Republic as 'head of the snake'.
Moreover, as observers point out, the crisis in Syria where both Israel and Saudi Arabia are involved – the former with the supply of arms and the latter with hundreds of millions of dollars of money – are further proof of the US-American-Zionist plot to undermine Iran's influence in the region, in view of the fact that the government of President Bashar al-Assad resolute defence of the rights of the Palestinian people. Thus, Israel and the reactionary Arab regimes in the region are dangerously involved in a plot against Iran, which political analysts point out, will eventual backfire to the detriment of both Israel and Saud Arabia.
