It seemed unlikely anyway


I’m sure I wasn’t the only person who saw this British newspaper report over the weekend about Saudi Arabia allegedly allowing Israel to overfly its territory to bomb Iran and said, "Really? I have a hard time believing that." The Saudis were apparently annoyed enough by it that their embassy in Washington has put out a statement denying it, which Laura Rozen posts at An excerpt:

The Kingdom is greatly puzzled by the publication of this false information, which directly contradicts the established, firm and clear policies of the Saudi government regarding relations with the occupying government of Israel and the Kingdom’s prohibition against the use of its territories or airspace for aggression against another nation."

Then again, if Saudi Arabia did give Israel the green light, they certainly wouldn’t announce it publicly, and would deny it if it did become public….so hmmm?
