Reader comment on item: Outrageous Covers at a Saudi Book Fair

Submitted by Zeev (Israel), Aug 14, 2019 at 03:14

To quote the late PM Itzhak Shamir "The Arabs are the same Arabs and the sea is the same sea". He was of course referring to the famous promise of the Arabs to drown all the Jews in the Mediterranean. This was his way of saying "in the Middle East, nothing is ever new under the sun".

Israel will do conjuncturally convenient business with the ambitious murderer MbS , the dictator A-Sisi and the treacherous terror-harboring prostitutes King Abdallah and the Gulf satellites, just as it did with the Jihadist Erdogan, but do not expect the Arabs in the street to EVER become philo-semites.

That the favorite pastime of the murderous Arab hordes that surround Israel is internecine mass murder is of course a blessing for Israel as it would not survive otherwise, but do not mistake the occasional deals, even the strategic ones, that Israel makes with their strongmen, for indication that the hateful nations are becoming peaceful. This will never happen.
