Saudis give nod to Israeli raid on Iran

"John Bolton, the former US ambassador to the United Nations who recently visited the Gulf, said it was “entirely logical” for the Israelis to use Saudi airspace.

Bolton, who has talked to several Arab leaders, added: “None of them would say anything about it publicly but they would certainly acquiesce in an overflight if the Israelis didn’t trumpet it as a big success.”

Arab states would condemn a raid when they spoke at the UN but would be privately relieved to see the threat of an Iranian bomb removed, he said."

WOW!! What does this say about the shifting dynamic in the Middle East? The House of Saud, birth place of Osama bin Laden and of Salafism, gives clearance to the Joooooos to bomb the piss out of the only Islamist state on the planet!!

Okay. I'm stumped. There are Islamist factions all over the place, but I can't think of another that actually is governed by Islamists, as in a hard core Islamic theocracy, at least openly. Maybe my definition of the term is narrower than yours.
