The Zionist regime has put pressure on Saudi Arabia to abduct Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri in order to drag Hezbollah and Iran into a new war, says a commentator.
“It looks as if Israel is now desperate to create a pretext for war with Iran,” E. Michael Jones told Press TV on Thursday.
The expert said Tel Aviv thinks the kidnap “will serve as a pretext for the war that Israel wants to break up Hezbollah in Lebanon.”
The Saudis have always been “junior partners” in several Israeli-US operations in the Middle East, the editor of the Culture Wars online magazine noted.
Saudi Arabia has said it would deem Lebanon as having declared a war on the kingdom, because of its failure to stop what it calls aggression by the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah.
