The mysterious flight between the two nations had many asking "Whodunnit?"
A privately owned, unidentified Challenger 604 jet departed from Ben-Gurion International Airport, landing first in the Jordanian capital of Amman and then in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh on Tuesday evening, causing many to question which Israeli decided to pay the Saudis a visit.
The plane in question departed from Israel and flew to an airport in Amman, where it remained on the ground for about two minutes before taking off again and landing in the Saudi capital. After a little less than an hour, the plane, privately owned and registered in the United States, took off and returned to Ben-Gurion Airport. The plane has also made trips in recent months between Tel Aviv and Cairo.
US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper was also in Riyadh at around the same time, pointed out Haaretz reporter Avi Scharf in a tweet.
Maariv reporter Yossi Melman posted in a tweet that either Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen may have been on the flight.
In September, Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon told The Jerusalem Post that Israel and various Arab states, including those with whom Israel does not have formal ties, were working together at the UN and elsewhere against Iran.
While the Europeans were running around trying to get a meeting between [US President Donald] Trump and [Iranian President Hassan] Rouhani, Israel and various Arab states were coordinating efforts to reveal the true face of the Iranians, Danon said.
Not really a secret that some Gulf States are working with Israel against Iran.
Israelis are managing some of the security at oil installations in the UAE and maybe Bahrain.
Perhaps Iran is up to something threatening. Discovery of a new installation in Iran, perhaps?
Or maybe Iran's weaponized drones and how to defeat/disable them!
Probably some kind of quid pro quo meeting.
Isn't any agreement between countries or even businesses quid pro quo? I mean, no one gives anyone money or goods with no expectation of getting something in return. Your business would fail if you give away your products for free, and you'd be pretty unhappy if you went to a grocery store, handed over money, and didn't get any produce in exchange.
They met over Sushi. It was Squid Pro Quo.
(What a great name for a sushi roll.)
And as far as ....Do me a favor....It's such a common everyday phrase...hardly rises to the rank of "MUST"....
Mom....do me a favor...pick up the kids....
Honey...do me a favor....bring home a gallon of milk....
In the meantime, Nancy is working on the quid pro quo for USMCA.
Well, Bibi just failed to form a government. I wonder if a PM Gantz would do the same ( assuming he was successful in forming a government ).
RE: They met over Sushi. It was Squid Pro Quo.
Ahh, but is it BOTH Kosher and Halal?
I looked it up. Halal but not Kosher.
This Saudi-Israel-USA business is a very bad idea.
This is far more important than people realize. All the shake up in the Middle East May result in an unprecedented opportunity for peace.
for the “If you knew sushi, like we know sushi” subthread:
Because the House of Saud is guaranteed to fall in a bloodbath.
Charge #1 will be dealing with Israel.
Charge #2 will be infidel troops in the Kingdom.
We cannot save the al-Saud family at anything like a tolerable price. AND, once it’s clear which way the wind is blowing, they’re all moving to Switzerland anyway.
We cannot control the destiny of the states and peoples of the Middle East. We have paid an horrific price trying.
Enough is enough.
maybe they also tried an Arab whale roll?
Jet travel between Israel & The Kingdom? Maybe it’s the headless ghost of Jeffrey Epstein? The only other person I know who could pull this off. Given that there’s considerable doubt here that Mr. Epstein is actually dead...
Not unless he's been secretly growing wings.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
