'Our friends the Saudis': 'Israeli planes flying over would contaminate holy cities'

Some of you may have been wondering why 'our friends the Saudis' have been so reluctant to even make the smallest concession possible to Israel - to allow Israeli planes to overfly their country. In an Israel Radio interview Sunday morning, Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz let the beans spill (Hat Tip: IMRA).
Minister of Transportation Yisrael Katz (Likud) noted in a live interview broadcast this morning on Israel Radio that the Saudis rejected the proposal that Israeli planes be permitted to fly over Saudi Arabia on the grounds that Israeli planes would "contaminate" Saudi holy cities if they fly over them.
I guess when the IAF planes fly over Saudi Arabia on their way to Iran, they'll have to get the pilots to 'purify' themselves first.

This is a lot of hot air - a subtrefuge. Saudi Arabia, along with all the filthy rich gulf oil states want Israel to bomb Iran to hell. They have much to lose when Iran and its rapists have a nuclear bomb. But they have to coninue to reassure their Muslim brothers of their Jew-hating cred.

As Evelyn Gordon said before the weekend, few Israelis care about having better relations with the Arabs. Few Jews want to overfly Saudi Arabia or arrange to visit Morocco. For most Israelis, the peace process was a trump card to secure better relations with the West. But its outlived its usefulness. And the prospects of peace ever being realized between Israel and the Arab World in the future are slim to none.

The Saudis don't have to be worried about being "contaminated" by the Jews since nothing is going to happen that will lead them to embrace the Jewish State for good.
