Haaretz: Is Our Ally, Saudi Arabia, Pushing «Israel» Into War With Hezbollah and Iran?
Local Editor

Under the title, "Is Saudi Arabia Pushing "Israel" Into War with Hezbollah and Iran?" Haaretz daily viewed that "what connects Lebanese PM Saad Hariri's sudden resignation with Saudi Arabia and 'Israel' is Iran."

However, the former US Ambassador to the apartheid "Israeli" entity, Daniel Shapiro, warned that Tel Aviv must not be maneuvered by an impatient Riyadh into a premature confrontation.

"With sustained support from Saudi Arabia and the United States, Saad Hariri withstood these pressures for a time," he added.

Shapiro further highlighted "The bigger question is whether his resignation is a sign that the Saudis withdrew their support for him once again. At first blush, that would not seem consistent with King Salman and MBS's overall desire to confront Iran's proxies on every front. But it is plausible that the Saudis are trying to create the context for a different means of contesting Iran in Lebanon: an "Israeli"-Hezbollah war."

"With [Syrian President] Bashar al-Assad clearly having survived the challenge posed by Saudi-backed rebels, the Saudi leadership may hope to move its confrontation with Iran from Syria to Lebanon. By pulling Hariri out of his office, they may hope to ensure that Hezbollah gets stuck with the blame and responsibility for Lebanon's challenges," he added.

Moreover, Shapiro stressed that "Israel" and Saudi Arabia are fully aligned in a regional struggle, and the Saudis cannot help but be impressed by "Israel's" increasing assertiveness to strike at Iranian threats in Syria.

""Israel" will have to make its own decision when the time is right for that fight. When the moment of truth arrives, "Israel's" allies, with the United States in the lead, should give it full backing," he mentioned.

However, Shapiro warned that the "Israeli" leaders will want to take care not to find themselves backed into a premature confrontation by the maneuvers of their allies who sit in Riyadh.
