Saudi authorities must wise up and realize that Makkah and Medinah are in the menu for the Israeli Python.

The Lord of Moses has prohibited the Jews to ever have an independent state of their own but only to live within other nations. Educated Rabbis and Christian scholars are fully aware of this historical curse upon Jews.

Any country that may recognize Israel will share the bitter consequences of that Heavenly Curse. The planet Earth will not live in peace as long as Israel exists as an independent state on its surface. Israel Must go back to her original border, the border before 1948, for the Jews and the rest of the world to live in Peace

melissa i am Jewish, and ali is correct, we(Jews) made a pact with g_D if you were Jewish you would understand and not insult the man. We Jews made a pact with g_d to only return to Israel when g_d returns and rebuilds the temple. The reason why Jewish people try desperately to forget the pact is because most Jews consider themselves reform, which just means i want to call myself Jewish but not follow the commandments or the torah. CASE CLOSED.

I am not religious but this is the truth and I learned it in parochial school. The Jews were cast to the 4 winds, never to be a nation but a nation within nations, never to have a land of their own

Oh, so this is the reason muslims do not want Israel to exist. It makes so much sense now! I must have misinterpreted all the "annihilate Israel" and "wipe Israel off the page of time" statements. Perhaps Ahmadinejad is right about the holocaust never happening. It was just an excuse to recreate Israel. Those sneaky Jews.

Let the jews have their land but also teach them to live peacefully with their neighbors and not be a constant source of conflict in the region. You can't create a state at the expense of other people. Jews constantly talk about the atrocities of holocaust, yet they have done and are doing the same to the Palestinians. Down with Netanyahu and his Zionist party.

You put a lot of effort into your worthless illusions, and while I can appreciate your right to express yourself, I have merely but a sentence in response: Iran is the root of all evil in the Middle East and the world would be better off if it were to vanish off this earth.

No one can be optimistic for improving the Saudi Arabia-Iran relations at least in the short time. Each country has its own agenda in the regional domination. All the tracks of competition and, even, the conflict will remain open for a long. It is an existential struggle for the supremacy in the Middle East and controlling the Islamic World.

Dear Friend, I lived in Iran for a few years and was employed at the air base, Mirabad, Teheran. You are 100% correct in your assumption, Americans are blindsided and fail to see the evilness in the Zionist Jewish movement. Zionist Israel must be dismantled or peace can never happen in this world.

RUBBISH. Israel is a Jewish State. Saudi is a Muslim State. Leave Gd out please, unless you want to talk about friendships, peace or tolerance of Religion. Gd is not taking sides with where Israel should be or whether Islam should be the ONLY religion on earth. RUBBISH. Saudi is doing Nothing to respect Israel, as we see with their Doctrines sent to Abbas/Hamas.

One truthful thing I can say is that it was Not the Jewish peoples who cause the trouble, but Muslims who do want to see Judaism disappear so they can be the Only ones.Arab Muslims were attacking Jewish villages even under the Ottoman in 1400.1500-1800's. The Ottoman had to protect Yehuda, make laws against attacks and increase army support during holidays. 1948 6 Muslim countries invaded for large bloody War to 'exterminate all Jews'. This is called causing Trouble and it is the Muslims.We see this 'trouble' carried out all over the world. Israel can only DEFEND, because they Do have the Right to Exist. If they have to build Walls to keep out suicide bombers and all terrorist acts, Build a Dome to keep out missiles, whatever they have to do to Stop these crazed jihadists from "kill the Jew for Allah!" they will do and get help doing it. Muslims MUST STOP and learn to live WITH 'others' and stop calling all 'others' enemies.

Tan Mann.. Even though I don't like Iran. I have to disagree with you. Saudi Arabia is the country producing and funding terrorists worldwide and you seem to ignore that. You sound like a close minded person, NO SANE person wants a whole country to be vanished of the face of earth.. go grow up kiddo

Well the two countries have something in common. They both treat women as if they are not members of the human species. A few years back in Iran they executed a 16 year old girl for having sex with a member of the morality police. You have the same kind of miscarriage of justice in Saudi Arabia. They both believe in a slightly different version of the world's worst religion. It would be better for everybody if they would cut each other's throats.

30% of Saudi youth are unemployed because they are too lazy unskilled conceited and soft-handed to do the available work in SA and prefer taking their oil-Riyals stipend payment and playing away their days while foreign workers do all the nasty manual labor.

lots of the usual dribbling incoherent Iranian and muslim adolescants on this thread, I thought it might attract some more mature geopolitical contributions.
Anyway, Saudi shakes hands with Iranian, in 1939, Stalin and Hitler effectively shook hands.
Saudi Arabia knows that a nuclear-armed Iran is catastrophe for the Gulf region, and continually reminds the US of this fact.

Let --them---learn to live peacefully with their neighbors???

this would be,as in, their dysfunctional backward Arab and Iranian muslim neighbors who cannot live peacefully even with EACH OTHER??
What is this hallucinogen they put in your water in the Middle-east..or is it all coming back to THAT accursed RELIGION and being brainwashed from birth with Arab fairy tales and conspiracies by functionally illiterate parents?

If Iran vanished might not be a complete solution for Middle-east, or for the world, but definitely GIANT step in the RIGHT direction.
It would be one less trouble-making lunatic asylum run by Islamic Holy men. How could that not at least be some progress?

IRAN IS A STRONG SUPPORTER OF BASHAR AL ASSAD OF SYRIA AND SAUDI ARABIA HAS SENSED THE CONCLUSION WHICH SEEMS THAT AL ASSAD IS ON THE WAY TO VICTORY.
THE QUESTION NOW IS ,WHO WILL ASSAD TURN HIS GUNS ON NEXT? THE ANSWER IS VERY OBVIOUS AND WHO WILL THE IRANIANS SUPPORT? SO YOU SEE THE REASION FOR RAPPROCHEMENT.
