Saudi crown prince: If Iran gets a nuclear bomb, so will the kingdom

Saudi Arabia would get its own nuclear bomb as soon as possible if Iran were to develop a nuclear weapon, Saudi Crown Prince Muhammed bin Salman (MsB) said in a CBS This Morning interview, to be broadcast in full on 60 minutes Sunday, March 18, the day before he meets President Donald Trump at the White House.

In his first American TV interview, the prince was questioned about having called Ayatollah Khamenei “the new Hitler” of the Middle East, he replied, “Absolutely.”  The prince who is also the kingdom’s deputy prime minister and defense minister explained: “Because he wants to expand. He wants to create his own project in the Middle East very much like Hitler who wanted to expand at the time. Many countries around the world and in Europe did not realize how dangerous Hitler was until what happened, happened. I don’t want to see the same events happening in the Middle East.”

      Who Will Light the Critical Spark?

      Rashi comments .

      “Yaacov saw the many leaders listed, and wondered how it would be possible to conquer them all. But what is written? … ‘And the house of Yaacov will be a fire and the house of Yosef a flame, while the house of Eisav will be straw’ [Ovadia 1:18 ]. A spark will emanate from Yosef which will burn and consume them all.”

    Saudi Arabia needs us and we need them, in the face of this very real Iranian threat. And the situation is even worse than meets the eye, I think..

    Nothing like and armed bunch of Muslims extremists facing each other – anyway wasn’t it the Saudi’s who funded Pakistan’s bomb program? Didn’t they get a couple of bombs in return?

    Obviously the Non-proliferation treaty isn’t working. Every little African dictator (much worst than the N. Korean one) will eventually nuke its neighbor once everybody has a nuke. I don’t see US, Russia and China of being capable or even willing of stopping it.

    so, basically now we have to have an ad hitlerum idiots assessment, verbatim, as if Hitler was Germany and the German people was an idolatrous ethnic chauvinist and tyrannical territorial imperialism, like the US UK or indeed the idolatrous anti christ state in Palestine.

    Shiites believe half of the true believers will travel from Yemen carrying white flags to Mecca while the other half will travel from Karbala, Iraq, carrying black flags to Mecca. Thus, their real goal is Mecca and not Jerusalem just like their goals so far have been Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, etc. rather than Palestine.

    You get a nuclear weapon, you get a nuclear weapon, everyone gets a nuclear weapon. Game changing and catastrophic for Israel.

        Bruce Pee, Muslims should stop occupying Israeli land. It’s been Israeli land for 3,000 years. Muslims can occupy Eurabia because Eurabia loves Muslims and their terrorist culture.
