Do Unto Others…?

The only problem with the golden rule, “Do unto others as you would like others to do unto you.” is most people, politicians and diplomats included, think it means: Do unto others as they do unto you. Also, even though mainstream and especially radical Islam rejects Jesus Christ as the Son of God even though his virgin birth and place in the linage of prophets is in the Quran, it hates Christianity, the US, Israel and the rest of the west. The world just tolerates Biden with some laughing behind his back and most laughing in his face. Diplomats at least have to or are suppose to act diplomatically when they are face to face. Don’t they?

Biden receives muted reception in Saudi Arabia. This is how previous US presidents were greeted

Middle East Eye takes a look at how US presidents have been welcomed by Saudi Arabian leadership over the last two decades

Form the article:

US President Joe Biden arrived for his first visit as president to Saudi Arabia on Friday evening, as the American leader is seeking a recalibration of Washington’s ties with Riyadh, a boost in oil production, and some steps towards further integrating Israel into the region.

But rather than being received at the airport by the kingdom’s leadership, such as King Salman or his son Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia, he was received by a party whose highest ranked official was Khalid bin Faisal Al Saud, the governor of Mecca province. Princess Reema bint Bandar, the Saudi ambassador to the US, was also there to greet Biden.

He later met the Saudi crown prince and the two greeted each other with a fist bump and no smiles…. {Was the Crown Prince thinking,”Thank Allah for Covid.”?}

George W Bush’s warm reception, rebuff on oil

The two-term, former US President George W Bush waited until his final year in office to visit Saudi Arabia, then went twice in the span of four months as he pressed Riyadh to pump more oil amid skyrocketing energy prices as a result of the 2008 financial crisis.

On his second visit in May 2008, King Abdullah greeted Bush at the airport with a warm reception and the Saudi monarch gave Bush a kiss on both cheeks – a traditional Arab greeting. And the two leaders walked down a red carpet while a military brass band played the American national anthem.

In a similar situation to the one Biden is in now, Saudi Arabia rejected Bush’s calls to pump more oil, saying that there was no supply shortage that required an increase in production.

What if the Prince says, “Pump your own!”

Biden gets small Saudi win ahead of visit where he needs a big one

From the article:

The itinerary was choreographed by the White House to amplify the chief accomplishment of Biden’s trip so far — an announcement by Saudi Arabia that it will open its airspace to all carriers, including those from Israel.

The decision means flights from Asia to Israel will no longer need to make lengthy detours. The U.S. has encouraged Israel and Arab countries to bolster their cooperation to better counter Iran’s regional influence.

The need for a political win only grew more acute overnight after Sen. Joe Manchin, the West Virginia Democrat and crucial swing vote in an evenly divided U.S. Senate, announced he wouldn’t support Biden’s full economic legislative package. That effectively killed Biden’s hopes for a bill that would have raised taxes on the wealthy and corporations and invested significantly in programs to combat climate change.

But while the announcement provided some diplomatic momentum, the ultimate success of Biden’s trip will hinge on the tightly choreographed meeting Friday with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Part of that meeting is open to the media, ensuring images of the pair as diplomatic equals.

The event represents a significant reversal for Biden, who said during the 2020 presidential campaign he would make Saudi Arabia “a pariah” over the 2018 murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. As president, Biden released an intelligence report indicating the crown prince had ordered the killing.

A Conspiracy Theory?

Did Biden apologize?

Biden lands in Saudi Arabia, country he vowed to turn into ‘pariah’

From the article:

US President Joe Biden landed Friday in Saudi Arabia and met Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, sealing a retreat from his campaign pledge to turn the kingdom into a “pariah” over human rights abuses. 

Saudi state media showed images of Air Force One at the airport in the coastal city of Jeddah after a flight from Israel, making Biden the first US leader to fly directly from the Jewish state to an Arab nation that does not recognise it.

In 2017, his predecessor, Donald Trump, made the journey in reverse.

Biden, wearing sunglasses, emerged from Air Force One to walk down a purple carpet and be greeted by Mecca province governor Prince Khaled al-Faisal and Princess Reema bint Bandar Al-Saud, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Washington….

What, no red carpet?!?!

Biden is hoping for oil. Will he get it after making an energy independent America into just buy more electric cars because I closed down pipelines, stopped drilling and sold strategic oil reserves to China who is an ally with Iran? Here’s the Iran and Russia deal:

Iran confirms fifth round of talks held with Saudi Arabia

From the 2022 article:

DUBAI, April 25 (Reuters) – Regional rivals Iran and Saudi Arabia held a fifth round of “positive” talks in Baghdad last Thursday on normalising bilateral relations, Iran’s foreign ministry spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh confirmed on Monday….

“The fifth round of talks between Saudi Arabia and Tehran were held in Iraq and the talks were progressive and positive,” Khatibzadeh told a televised weekly news conference.

On Sunday, Iraq’s Foreign Minister Fouad Hussein said Baghdad would host a new round of talks.

Khatibzadeh said “initial talks were underway between Tehran and Riyadh on sending 40,000 Iranian pilgrims to the haj in Mecca” this year.

Looks like Sunni and Shi’ite factions are trying to mend their political disagreements like the Eastern and Western Orthidox are trying to mend their theological disagreements.

Russia’s Lavrov in Iran to Discuss Nuclear Deal, Cooperation

From the atricle:

Russia’s foreign ministry posted a clip of Lavrov’s opening remarks during a meeting with Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi in which he said Moscow was adapting to what he called the West’s aggressive policies.

“In all the countries experiencing the negative influence of the selfish line taken by the United States and its satellites, there arises the objective need to reconfigure their economic relations so they can avoid relying on the whims and vagaries of our Western partners,” Lavrov said.

Last month Moscow said Russia and Iran, which are both under Western sanctions and sit on some of the world’s largest oil and gas reserves, had discussed swapping supplies for oil and gas as well as establishing a logistics hub.

While Moscow is challenging Western sanctions over Ukraine, Tehran’s clerical rulers have been struggling to keep Iran’s economy afloat because of U.S. sanctions that were reimposed after Washington exited Tehran’s nuclear deal in 2018.

Remember the three axis powers in World War II?

Our relationship status with Russia is not good! Our status with China is shaky at best and it is all but lost with Iran. Biden ruined our standing with the Saudis

Don’t hold your breath on Biden to get the Saudi’s to pump more oil!

What about our status with God?

Isaiah 24:1-5

KJV(i) 1 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. 2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. 3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word. 4 The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. 5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.

Ezekiel 38

KJV(i) 1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, 3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: 4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: 5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them….

Persia (Iran) sits on a lot of oil and gas and the head of WHO is Ethiopian!

Zechariah 13:7-9

KJV(i) 7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. 8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. 9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

Come out of Babylon for her judgement is near!
