Convinced that Iran is tricking the world over nuclear weapons, Israel and Saudi Arabia -- two former enemies -- are now working together to curb Iran's nuclear ambitions, The Sunday Times (British) website reports today (November 17, 2013).
Israel's Mossad intelligence agency is working with Saudi officials on contingency plans for a possible attack on Iran if its nuclear program is not significantly curbed in a deal that could be signed in Geneva this week.
Both Israeli and Saudi governments are convinced that the international talks to place limits on Iran's military nuclear development amount to appeasement and will do little to slow its development of a nuclear warhead.
As part of the growing co-operation, Saudi Arabia has already given the go-ahead for Israeli planes to use its airspace if it attacks Iran. Both Israel and Saudi Arabia are furious at the United States for its failure to take more aggressive action against Iran -- including bombing its nuclear facilities -- as the Middle East nation nears its completion of nuclear weapons.
