Saudis cut trade with Germany...unravelling Obama's pro Iran policies.

Saudis cut trade with Germany

65% of Detlef Daues's business in Hannover, Germany, were exports to Saudi Arabia.


Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is deeply offended by Chancellor Merkel's support of the terrorist-exporting state of Iran, Der Spiegel reported. The Saudis are not doing business with Germany.

That is not all.

"Riyadh withdrew its ambassador from Germany and he still hasn't returned," Der Spiegel reported.

Germany's Saudi exports topped $7 billion last year.

"Some 800 German companies are active in the country, and 200 have offices in Saudi Arabia with a total of 40,000 employees," Der Spiegel reported.

Old Europe's embrace of Iran has consequences. I believe the anti-Semitism inherent in socialism has much to do with this enabling of Iranist terrorism through Hamas and the like.

At any rate, the new leadership in Saudi Arabia, which supports Israel, will have none of this.

Which side are we on?

U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grennell tweeted on May 8, "As @realDonaldTrump said, US sanctions will target critical sectors of Iran’s economy. German companies doing business in Iran should wind down operations immediately."

Germans can trade with Iran or Saudi Arabia, but they no longer can do both.
