Possible sign for peace here. That would be awesome.

bone saws have always been kosher

Wasn't Netanayahu supposed to be charged with the kind of corruption that keeps assholes like this out of office forever?
 
2020-11-23 2:23:57 PM  
im guessing it's a meeting to see how much they can squeeze out of mister master negotiator in 58? days

narrator: "plenty."

My first thought of that meeting is ironic pretty much all the way across.

Here's currently on trial, but the trial has been delayed because of the coronavirus.

Also, Israel does not have a law that forbids members of parliament under indictment from serving as prime minister. The opposition is trying to create such a law, but it will not happen unless they win a future election.

Marriage of convenience. Both of them are shaking hands with their right hands while holding daggers behind their backs with their lefts. I hope this isn't the case, but I'm not optimistic.

The weird (possibly embarrassing) thing is that I could have sworn I heard a statement denying his presence on Saudi soil from some source or another.

I am sure Muslims eat Kosher, not sure if it also goes the other way.

"Wow, those cops are sure dressed nice."

Sounds like the Saudis are throwing Palestine to the wolves.

Actually, no. Kosher is more strict than halal. So, observant Muslims can eat kosher food but observant Jews cannot eat halal food.

There was no pulled pork at the meeting. That's all we know for sure.

Objective note: Every society has a pecking order. Among Arab countries, the Palestinians are last on the list. (Which sucks for them.)

Egyptians are proud of their history. Saudi Arabia is proud of being the center of Islam. Turkey wants to relive the Ottoman Empire. And so on. They look at the Palestinians and laugh. Sadly for the Palestinians, no one really gives a shiat about them -- everything anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian is just political posturing.

I just have to correct myself for clarity in the thread. Turks are not Arabs and should not be included in "Arab countries" even though the country is Islamic. Two different ethnic groups with the same religion. To be honest, if you call a Turk an Arab, you might need to run for your life.

(Remember WWI and Lawrence of Arabia and all that.)

You might want to look into Arab/Muslim countries looking at Palestine/Palestinians and laughing.
I'm not sure what is funny there.

The only way this happens is if they both have found a third party they hate more than each other.

lolmao500: The wahabist ideology running saudi arabia is the worst muslim sect of all.


Not entirely accurate.

Back in the day, you had the House of Saud that wanted to consolidate power over what is now Saudi Arabia.

The Wahabis were opposed. So the House of Saud made a deal: "Let us have the power, and we will let you do what you want. Don't mess with us, and we'll give you a lot of money and fund your movement enough to even export it."

And that is what you have today.

I said that to demonstrate the point that when it comes to geopolitical priorities among the Arab countries in the Middle East, the Palestinians are (sadly) last on their lists despite what they say publicly.

Seeing as Trump now has direct access to Special Forces, I'm betting it's action against Iran, and I'm not the only one thinking that--s'all over Twatter as well.

Trump is doing this this by promising to sell advanced US military tech to the Arab states, if they cozy up to Israel.

Making something "kosher" involves a whole procedure and process. It is not just a "rabbi blessing a factory."

Netanyahu is emerging as Mohammed bin Salman's friend-in-need.
"For a month after Khashoggi disappeared inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, the Israeli government was conspicuously silent. Then, a day or two after it was reported that Netanyahu had phoned the White House to lobby for Mohammed, he spoke up: While "what happened in the Istanbul consulate was horrendous, and should be duly dealt with," he said, "it's very important for the stability of the world ... that Saudi Arabia remain stable."

Israeli Software Helped Saudis Spy on Khashoggi, Lawsuit Says - " The lawsuit puts new pressure on the company, the NSO Group, and on the government of Israel, which licenses the company's sales to foreign governments of its spyware, known as Pegasus. "

Religious strictures have to cost you something else nobody thinks you're serious. No one would feel that being forbidden to eat sewage-dipped chunks of broken pottery involves a sacrifice.
