Sweet Home Alabama

God bless Alabama! Thank you for protecting your children! The Alabama senate voted overwhelmingly (23-4) along party lines this week to make gender transitioning hormone therapy and surgery for children a FELONY. Only Democrats voted against this legislation to protect children. As one state senator said, “Children aren’t mature enough to make these decisions on surgeries and drugs.” Of course they’re not—that’s just common sense. This goes before their House of Representatives next. Let’s pray that it will pass. I applaud these legislators and hope other states will follow suit.

Former Secretary Of State Pompeo Claims “Many” In The Saudi Kingdom Desire A Relationship With IsraelBy Behold Israel, Mar 2, 2021

The former Secretary of State, while speaking to the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement this week, voiced his hope for the Saudi Kingdom to join the Abraham Accords; Pompeo: I hope that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia can find its way to join the Abraham Accords. I know that many inside that country want that to take place.

While addressing listeners tuning in to the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement via a recorded video, former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo revealed that “many” within Saudi Arabia wish to see the Kingdom normalize its diplomatic ties with the Jewish State. In addition, Pompeo himself voiced his support for the Kingdom to join the Abraham Accords, following suit with the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Morocco, and Sudan.

Pompeo said, “I hope that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia can find its way to join the Abraham Accords. I know that many inside that country want that to take place.” There was speculation near the end of 2020 that the Kingdom was on the verge of joining the Accords after Pompeo and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a very brief trip to Neom, Saudi Arabia, to meet with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Continuing his speech, Pompeo revisited the Trump administration’s approach to Iranian aggression, acknowledging that the Abraham Accords could only become a reality through the tough US stance regarding the Islamic Republic, explaining that it revealed how serious the US was concerning a better relationship between Israel, the US, and the Arab world.

He specifically targeted the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and its former leader, General Qassem Soleimani, stating, “When leaders in the Arab world saw that the United States was prepared to do this, to push back against Iran, to push back against the IRGC leadership in the person of Qassem Soleimani, they knew they had a friend…They knew that they could… build out a set of accords with the State of Israel: these are not disconnected issues, they are deeply connected, one could not happen without the other.”

Despite Israel and Saudi Arabia not yet having normalized diplomatic ties, it has been reported that the two countries have worked together behind the scenes for some time.
