Kuwaiti Columnist Calls for Israeli-Gulf ‘Friendship Society’ With the ‘Friendly State of Israel’


Now is the time to launch an Israeli-Gulf alliance that will act as a counterbalance to the growing regional threat from Iran, a columnist for a Kuwait government newspaper has declared.

“I repeat my call to form a Israel-Gulf friendship society, as a first step towards developing and strengthening [our] ties with the friendly state of Israel in the domains of politics, diplomacy, trade, education and military and civilian cooperation,” wrote Abdallah Al-Hadlaq in Al Watan, according to media watchdog the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Not to be confused as an act of diplomatic or historical rectification, Hadlaq included the caveat that an Israeli-Gulf rapprochement should occur amid a severing of all ties with regional foe Iran, especially as the Persian country has been linked to attacks in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Kuwait, as well as backing aggressive anti-government Houthi rebels in Yemen, the beleaguered Arab state flanking the southwestern corridor of the Arabian peninsula.
