Damnit! The Israelis and Saudis ARE the problem in the Middle East?

Sorry to the reader that linked this...I can't find your comment to credit you!

Early this morning, Israeli Channel 10 news published a leaked diplomatic cable which had been sent to all Israeli ambassadors throughout the world concerning the chaotic events that unfolded over the weekend in Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, which began with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri's unexpected resignation after he was summoned to Riyadh by his Saudi-backers, and led to the Saudis announcing that Lebanon had "declared war" against the kingdom.

The classified embassy cable, written in Hebrew, constitutes the first formal evidence proving that the Saudis and Israelis are deliberately coordinating to escalate the situation in the Middle East.

The explosive classified Israeli cable reveals the following:

On Sunday, just after Lebanese PM Hariri's shocking resignation, Israel sent a cable to all of its embassies with the request that its diplomats do everything possible to ramp up diplomatic pressure against Hezbollah and Iran.
The cable urged support for Saudi Arabia's war against Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen.
The cable stressed that Iran was engaged in "regional subversion".
Israeli diplomats were urged to appeal to the "highest officials" within their host countries to attempt to expel Hezbollah from Lebanese government and politics.

This is stunning.

Do you get the implications of this?

This is pointing toward Saudi/Israeli coordination in everything from ISIS to Yemen and even possibly the mess that is North Africa!

It could also lead one to credibly lay the refugee crisis on their doorsteps too.

I am stunned and bewildered.

I've been a strong supporter of Israel but if this is true and if my conclusions/speculation is correct then they've been a party in the killing, wounding and massive wealth destruction (our freaking money) that we've seen in the Middle East.

In short if this stuff pans out an argument could be made that we should shift fire.  I've always considered Saudi Arabia the true enemy of the United States but to think that Israel could be part of the real "satans" in the ME is causing me to spin more than I'm comfortable with.
