The covert alliance between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and the Zionist entity of Israel should be no surprise to any student of British imperialism.
The problem is the study of British imperialism has very few students. Indeed, one can peruse any undergraduate or post-graduate university prospectus and rarely find a module in a Politics degree on the British Empire let alone a dedicated degree or Masters degree. Of course, if the European led imperialist carnage in the four years between 1914 – 1918 tickles your cerebral cells then it’s not too difficult to find an appropriate institution to teach this subject, but if you would like to delve into how and why the British Empire waged war on mankind for almost four hundred years you’re practically on your own in this endeavor. One must admit, that from the British establishment’s perspective, this is a remarkable achievement.
In late 2014, according to the American journal “Foreign Affairs,” the Saudi petroleum Minister Ali al-Naimi is reported to have said, “His Majesty King Abdullah has always been a model for good relations between Saudi Arabia and other states and the Jewish state is no exception.”
Recently, Abdullah’s successor King Salman expressed similar concerns to those of Israel over the agreement between the United States and Iran over the latter’s nuclear programm. This led some to report that Israel and KSA presented a “united front” in their opposition to the nuclear deal.
