President Trump Calls Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman of Saudi Arabia…

The media is finally beginning to catch on to the larger picture:  ♦Jared Kushner is in Israel continuing talks toward a Israeli/Arab peace deal. ♦ Secretary Rex Tillerson is continuing to leverage Qatar away from funding the Muslim Brotherhood terror networks.  ♦President Trump is working through King Salman and today contacting newly elevated Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman:

President Donald J. Trump spoke today with Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia to congratulate him on his recent elevation. The President and the Crown Prince committed to close cooperation to advance our shared goals of security, stability, and prosperity across the Middle East and beyond.

The two leaders discussed the priority of cutting off all support for terrorists and extremists, as well as how to resolve the ongoing dispute with Qatar. They discussed efforts to achieve a lasting peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians. And they discussed ways to further deepen economic cooperation between the United States and Saudi Arabia.

Those of you who have been following along already know this is all carefully planned.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump called Saudi Arabia’s new crown prince Wednesday as the U.S. stepped up efforts to mediate a crisis between Qatar and America’s closest regional allies.

The president called Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman after Saudi Arabia’s King Salman appointed his 31-year-old son as crown prince. The elevation places Mohammed bin Salman as first-in-line to the throne and removed the country’s counterterrorism czar and a figure well-known to Washington from the line of succession.

[…]  Several members of the Gulf Cooperation Council, including Saudi Arabia, recently cut ties with Qatar, accusing it of funding extremism. Trump injected the U.S. into the volatile crisis among America’s Mideast allies, siding with Saudi Arabia and other countries against Qatar.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Wednesday that Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain have prepared a list of demands to submit to Qatar in an effort to defuse ongoing tensions.

“We hope the list of demands will soon be presented to Qatar and will be reasonable and actionable,” Tillerson said in a statement. “We support the Kuwaiti mediation effort and look forward to this matter moving toward a resolution.”

The dispute threatens to disrupt efforts to defeat the Islamic State group and counter Iran.

Earlier this month, Trump appeared to endorse the accusation that the small, gas-rich emirate funds terrorist groups, a serious allegation against a strategic U.S. partner that hosts a base with some 10,000 American troops.

He tweeted that he’d told the kings, presidents and prime ministers he met in Saudi Arabia that funding “Radical Ideology” can’t be tolerated, and “Leaders pointed to Qatar – look!”

Trump also sought to cast the anti-Qatar action led by the Saudis and the United Arab Emirates as the result of his trip last month to Riyadh, where he pressed leaders from dozens of Arab and Muslim governments, including Qatar’s emir, to combat extremism.

Trump and Salman also discussed efforts to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians. Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser, Jared Kushner, was in Israel Wednesday for meetings with Israeli and Palestinian leaders in his attempt to revive long-dormant peace talks.  (read more)

In regards to the continuing dispute within the GCC, we understand a list of demands has been prepared and coordinated by the Saudis, Emiratis, Egyptians, and Bahrainis. We hope the list of demands will soon be presented to Qatar and will be reasonable and actionable. We support the Kuwaiti mediation effort and look forward to this matter moving toward a resolution.

~ Secretary Rex Tillerson

    And they still believe Trump is impulsive and scattered.

    It’s so good, the underestimation of him. Because it allows him to get things done under the radar. Ditto with Muh Russia. Now that the media wants to cry wolf over the AHCA, they can’t. Because their viewer zombies are still keyed up on the fake Russia stuff.

    Ha ha ha.

    Amazing what one man can do when driven with a purpose! WE are the luckiest people on the face of the earth today. Our grand kids and their kids will see North Africa and the ME as a place they can visit while Europe will be a no fly zone because all that will be left is the extremist that were run out of North Africa and the ME.

    This decision yesterday is more evidence of it.

    NATO’s Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, had a press conference a few weeks ago. He goes onto say on a few different occasions that NATO will NOT engage in combat in Afghanistan or anywhere else in the ME. He talks about the fact that their job is to train, assist and advise

    This bastard was proud of the fact that they have 4 combat battalions ready and will continue to deploy them as part of the Ukraine, Crimea mission.

    Meanwhile President al-Sisi decided 6 hours after the killing of Coptic Christians in Egypt decided to bomb the sh….t out of ISIS in Libya. Christians only make up 10% of the Egyptian population. The U.K. has done sh…t since the 3 terrorist attacks over the past three months. That is all I have to say about the U.K. versus Egypt.

    Also there is this wonderful piece of information that was inspired by our PRESIDENT!

    http://www.arabnews.com/node/1110336/saudi-arabia

    From the article linked above:

    In a brief news conference following the meeting, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir and Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said they wanted to strengthen bilateral ties, expand their counterterrorism efforts under the auspices of a new Saudi anti-terrorism center and work with US President Donald Trump, who recently attended a summit in Riyadh.

    “The US represented by President Donald Trump has affirmed its commitment to this, and President Trump’s attendance at this historic summit was a very strong indication of the desire of the US to work with Arab and Islamic countries,” Al-Jubeir said.

    From the AP article

    The president called Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman after Saudi Arabia’s King Salman appointed his 31-year-old son as crown prince. The elevation places Mohammed bin Salman as first-in-line to the throne and removed the country’s counterterrorism czar and a figure well-known to Washington from the line of succession.

    Mohammed bin Salman and Trump have already established a working rapport, the two men meeting in Washington earlier this year, and then again during Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia last month.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-06-21/saudi-arabia-names-mohammed-bin-salman-as-crown-prince-j46gx3nq

    From the article linked above:

    “Muhammed bin Nayef was Washington’s man in Riyadh for a long time,” said Peter Salisbury, a fellow at Chatham House, an international affairs research group in London. “The security establishment will be unhappy he’s gone, more so because the new crown prince has really cut out institutions and is building a direct relationship with the White House.”

    Abroad, an emboldened Prince Mohammed raises the stakes for Iran, which Riyadh says is aggressively trying to spread its influence in the region through supporting Shiite movements and sponsoring terror. The prince is a staunch opponent of dialogue with Iran, a position backed by Trump, who’s been dialing back the Obama administration’s warming relations with the Islamic republic.

    Given who’s calling the shots in Riyadh and Washington, “it is not really a question of if but rather of when a new escalation with Iran starts,” said Olivier Jakob, managing director of consultant Petromatrix GmbH. “Under his watch, Saudi Arabia has developed aggressive foreign policies and he has not been shy about making strong statements against Iran.”

    Anyone have any background/informed opinion about whether the ouster of Muhammed bin Nayef in favor of Mohammed bin Salman will create instability within the KSA royalty? Will they be subject to the same kind of IC deep state black hat BS that PDJT has been? I like to hope, albeit reservedly, that the old king and the young prince are serious about bootstrapping KSA and maybe even pisslam into the 21st C and an entirely different place in the community of nations from the un-regenerate medievalism that has existed in the past. The oil will, one day, run out; so before then, they’d better figure out a way to make their dessert bloom or learn to eat sand.

      As King Salman is the last son of the original King, Abdullah, I believe he felt it time to end the old practice of appointing a nephew as Crown Prince and just keep it in his line. As all assignations of this type must be approved by the Ruling Council, I think he felt it was a good time to change it and put his youngest son as the next in line.

      MBS has been the face of KSA in the Trump admin since the get go. Perhaps Trump said to Salman that he looks approvingly on what MBS is doing with Vision2030 and would like to see this type of transformation continue and even be accelerated. Wouldn’t take much after that to convince the Council of the change. Of course this is all IMHO.

      The Prince is a kindred spirit with Trump. He’s a truly amazing human being. He’s the real deal. That the King named him as Crown Prince sends a powerful signal that the King backs reform and a repudiation of the Wahhabi ideology that has held the Kingdom hostage. I have been tracking the Prince for some time and am stunned and overjoyed that this has happened.

    “The two leaders discussed the priority of cutting off all support for terrorists and extremists”.

    Oh please.
    The Saudi Wahhabists control Islam in Saudi. Exporting terror and sharia through a massive world wide madrassa movement is part of their core operation. The Saudi elites support that partially because they agree and partially because in a fight for the people between the Royals and the Wahhabists clerics, the Royals will very likely lose.

    PTrump knows this, I greatly the admire the pretence in his negotiating technique.

    Our son just returned from a trip through several European countries and said he was told , by a 58 year old male Muslim native of Sweden, that Sharia Law is practiced ONLY in Saudi Arabia. Also he said he traveled through 9 different airports and security is triple-layered at all of them. You don’t go in the main airport door until you have passed through Security. At the desk of the airline you plan to travel on, you go through security again before you check your luggage. And then you again go through Security to go through the gate to the waiting area of the airline you will get on. He said the chatter is all about terrorists, everywhere he went. Security at the airports here is a comparative joke. Since his work keeps him traveling tons, but usually in the USA, we are thrilled he is nearing retirement. It’s hard to find a reason for our airline security to be way behind the security in Europe. It is also hard to fathom why our citizens are not allowed to go to the 6 “banned” countries, but their citizens are free to come here, at the moment.

John Bolton says the decision by Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdul Aziz to name his son, not his nephew, as successor to the throne presents major complications and challenges for U.S. interests in the region. “Things are very complicated in the region and that’s potentially quite dangerous for the U.S.,” Bolton said in an interview Wednesday on the FOX Business Network.

    Reality is more like this. Saudi is sunni, it financially supports ISIS and Al Q. It is a US “ally” in the region because Iran is shite and Saudi is their sworn enemy. USA likes that. Saudi is terrified Iran will develop nukes, even not very good ones can easily be delivered across the Gulf. Saudi needs US protection, hence their enthusiasm.

    The unavoidable unpalatable facts are that US forces will at times be ignoring ISIS in Syria (no matter what the official spin is) because the military and State crazies deem the defeat of Assad the first priority. Lots of watch ISIS convoys go on unmolested type stuff. As long as ISIS is only fighting Assad and not the Free French Marquis, sorry, the impure Syrian Democratic Resistance they get left alone.

    It is risible that Western civilization thinks it can forge “peace” deals with Islam. The PA tells us that “peace” can be had with Israel with Trump negotiating the deal. Horse manure!

    The FIRST RULE about peace that the western mind must understand is that there is no peace in the world until Islam conquers the world, according to Islamic doctrine.

    The SECOND RULE about peace is an agreement with Islam’s enemies that Islam can break and resume hostilities at its will whenever it regains its strength or has an advantage before the end of the treaty.

    The THIRD RULE about peace is that in no event will peace last longer than 10 years.

    So America thinks that Islam is telling the truth when it says it will not assist terrorists in the world. I do not see Saudi Arabia withdrawing its funds from building Mosques around the world. And where do you think the jihadi warriors learn their warfare and store their weapons of war? I do not see Iran removing its proxies from war in the middle east against its neighbors. Nor do I see Iran reducing its efforts to attain nuclear weapons. Everywhere I look I see Islam on the march against the non-Muslim world.

      Kenyon, THANK YOU for your very alert attitude regarding the spread of Islamic filth. I think you understand there is no such thing as “moderate” Islam. There is no such thing as “peaceful” Islam. However, I think our President has engaged with something extraordinary.

      Because of the Gulf Cooperation Council (Al-Sisi, King Abdullah, House of Saud, etc.) both Iran and Turkey are somewhat both isolated and also hindered in their “ascendancy” – at least for now. With our help, Israel is an even stronger force for democracy – at least for now. I also believe our President has a plan for later on, as well.

      The growing energy independence of the USA may not be politically correct and may not be all ecologically warm and fuzzy but for the sake of somewhat muting the power of the oil-funded spread of Islamic fundamentalism, that independence is TREMENDOUS. We are benefiting not just the USA with our moves toward energy independence but we are also benefiting the whole world. AND, others can learn from us.

      May I suggest to you that you also volunteer to teach classes to Church and Civic groups regarding the danger of Islam? I’ve been doing this for several years now and it does appear that people are (finally) waking up. Put together a presentation based in truth – but based from Islamic resources – of about an hour and allow some time for questions. Be prepared for some hostility but persist!

      It seems that you really “get it”. People still need to hear the truth from a credible source. You won’t make much – if any – money but you have insight that could be valuable to hundreds. THANK YOU for being here! MAGA!!
