BREAKING: the real reason why the White House is chasing a Saudi-Israel detente by the end of 2023



According to sources and reports, the Biden Administration has set a goal of cementing a Saudi-Israeli normalization agreement in the next six to seven months before his re-election campaign consumes his agenda, two anonymous US officials with knowledge about the situation told an Axios columnist last Wednesday.


There may be significant enough concern about the Democratic Party refusing to support a Saudi-Israel accord if a Republican president is in the White House, that team Biden has switched to full speed ahead mode to get a deal done before a Republican wins the White House. Setting a goal of getting a deal done by the end of this year leaves time for readjustment before the 2024 election.


Many Christians are watch-guarding White House affairs and looking for positive developments in the Arab-Israel peace initiative while watching for the return of Jesus Christ, as the Holy Bible reveals that the scenario of events leading up to the Day of the Lord includes an Israeli-Palestinian detente - many believe.


This particular rapprochement is viewed by Bible scholars, theologians, students and observers as a key fulfillment of prophesy contained in Daniel's 70 Weeks timeline. And an Israeli-Saudi detente could very well be the first-tipped domino on the way to fulfilling said Israel-Palestine peace agreement and prophesy.


White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan completed his previously stated agenda item of meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman last week on the Biblical Red Sea coast in the port city of Jeddah - a commercial center and gateway to Mecca. The two discussed issues including the possibility of Saudi-Israeli normalization, US officials said.


After the Sullivan-bin Salman meeting, White House officials including Middle East honcho Brett McGurk and senior adviser Amos Hochstein briefed Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem. Mr. Netanyahu has publicly expressed his hope that normalization with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will catalyze more Abraham Accords agreements with the Arab and Islamic world, especially Palestine, that would “effectively end the Arab-Israeli conflict.”


At least one anonymous Palestinian diplomat has credited Netanyahu with re-energizing the Israel-Palestine peace initiative, as reported by The Jerusalem Post in March of this year.


A man that Netanyahu views as a great friend to Israel, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham had traveled to both Saudi Arabia and Israel a few weeks before Sullivan and visited with MBS in Jeddah, delivering almost the same message as Sullivan.


"I told the crown prince that the best time to upgrade our relationship is now, that President Biden is very interested in normalizing relationships with Saudi Arabia and, in turn, Saudi Arabia recognizing [Israel]," He stated after his Jerusalem meeting with Netanyahu in the wake of Graham's visit with MBS.


“I believe that the Republican Party, writ large, would be glad to work with President Biden to change the relationship between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia," The U.S. Senator added.


"The United States is fully committed to strengthening and expanding the Abraham Accords and supporting Israel’s integration into the Middle East," An anonymous Biden Administration official told Axios regarding the Biden Administration's goal for mediating Israel-Saudi relations. "This will be an area of continued emphasis and focus for us over the coming period as we look to achieve a more integrated, more prosperous, and more stable region that serves the interests of our partners and the United States over the long term."


Before scuttle butting to Saudi Arabia, Sullivan spoke at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy - a Washington think tank - and said that America is still working towards its goal of normalizing relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia.


"Ultimately getting to full normalization is a declared national security interest of the United States. We have been clear about that," Sullivan said, as quoted by Reuters.


"Now as a sign of my seriousness about how much we're focused on this, and how seriously we are taking this, I am not going to say anything further lest I upset the efforts we are undertaking on this issue," added Mr. Sullivan.


Kingdom of Saudi Arabia diplomats have been consistent in declaring that a detente with Israel will not happen without the prerequisite of establishing eastern Jerusalem as Palestine's capital city. It is unclear what the Saudis and the US will ask for and how far Netanyahu’s government will go to secure a deal.
