There is also historic strong connection with UK, can't say what's up with that lately ....--Resup (talk) 11:56, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

It should be noted that there is a secret war of knocking down the price of oil, in which the Saudis and oil producing countries from the Gulf Cooperation Council continue to fill the market with raw materials excessively and reduce the price to strangle Iran. But not only it, but also Russia, Algeria and Venezuela - all of this "anti-American" axis created by these countries ", - the political scientist said in an interview with RT, explaining that those are the states that have refused to follow Washington's demands with regard to Ukraine, Syria and Yemen

  • How Zionism helped create the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Nu'man Abd al-Wahid , Mondo Weiss, January 7, 2016
    Briefly looked at, maybe quite reasonable account of lesser known history bits of Saudi Arabia from academic sort of standpoint, apart from the title. SA and Balfour are British, not Zionist projects; there is no direct role of Zionism in the history of SA. The former interactions were with Britain and the actual neighbors, especially Jordan, following 'divide' (Israel-Jordan) 'and sub-divide' (further, Israel and Palestine) policies. --Resup (talk) 11:34, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
I thought it was essential reading. He explains the title in the comments:
To address your point. Before World War 2, Zionism practically translated to and specifically meant the implementation of the British Empire’s Balfour Declaration. The British Empire were facilitating the implementation of the Balfour Declaration by allowing Ibn Saud to expand across the Arabian peninsula. After WW2 and especially with the creation of Israel in 1948, Zionism largely means supporting the state of Israel.
And it's also very clear throughout the whole text that the "Empire" is acting here. Maybe he chose the title to attract more readers. Worked with you, didn't it? ;o) --CE (talk) 14:06, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
