  1. 'Saudi Deal With Iran Worries Israel' TBS News https://www.tbsnews.net/worldbiz/middle-east/saudi-deal-iran-worries-israel-shakes-middle-east-598030 News of the rapprochement between long-time regional rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran sent shock waves through the Middle East on Saturday and dealt a symbolic blow to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has made the threat posed by Tehran a public diplomacy priority and personal crusade. The breakthrough — a culmination of more than a year of negotiations in Baghdad and more recent talks in China — also became ensnared in Israel's internal politics, reflecting the country's divisions at a moment of national turmoil. The agreement, which gives Iran and Saudi Arabia two months to reopen their respective embassies and re-establish ties after seven years of rupture, more broadly represents one of the most striking shifts in Middle Eastern diplomacy over recent years. In countries like Yemen and Syria, long caught between the Sunni kingdom and the Shiite powerhouse, the announcement stirred cautious optimism. In Israel, it caused disappointment — along with finger-pointing. One of Netanyahu's greatest foreign policy triumphs remains Israel's US-brokered normalization deals in 2020 with four Arab states, including Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. They were part of a wider push to isolate and oppose Iran in the region. He has portrayed himself as the only politician capable of protecting Israel from Tehran's rapidly accelerating nuclear program and regional proxies, like Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Israel and Iran have also waged a regional shadow war that has led to suspected Iranian drone strikes on Israeli-linked ships ferrying goods in the Persian Gulf, among other attacks. A normalization deal with Saudi Arabia, the most powerful and wealthy Arab state, would fulfill Netanyahu's prized goal, reshaping the region and boosting Israel's standing in historic ways. Even as backdoor relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia have grown, the kingdom has said it won't officially recognize Israel before a resolution to the decadeslong Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Since returning to office late last year, Netanyahu and his allies have hinted that a deal with the kingdom could be approaching. In a speech to American Jewish leaders last month, Netanyahu described a peace agreement as "a goal that we are working on in parallel with the goal of stopping Iran." But experts say the Saudi-Iran deal that announced Friday has thrown cold water on those ambitions. Saudi Arabia's decision to engage with its regional rival has left Israel largely alone as it leads the charge for diplomatic isolation of Iran and threats of a unilateral military strike against Iran's nuclear facilities. The UAE also resumed formal relations with Iran last year. "It's a blow to Israel's notion and efforts in recent years to try to form an anti-Iran bloc in the region," said Yoel Guzansky, an expert on the Persian Gulf at the Institute for National Security Studies, an Israeli think tank. "If you see the Middle East as a zero-sum game, which Israel and Iran do, a diplomatic win for Iran is very bad news for Israel." Even Danny Danon, a Netanyahu ally and former Israeli ambassador to the U.N. who recently predicted a peace agreement with Saudi Arabia in 2023, seemed disconcerted. "This is not supporting our efforts," he said, when asked about whether the rapprochement hurt chances for the kingdom's recognition of Israel. In Yemen, where the rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran has played out with the most destructive consequences, both warring parties were guarded, but hopeful. A Saudi-led military coalition intervened in Yemen's conflict in 2015, months after the Iran-backed Houthi militias seized the capital of Sanaa in 2014, forcing the internationally recognized government into exile in Saudi Arabia. The Houthi rebels welcomed the agreement as a modest but positive step. "The region needs the return of normal relations between its countries, through which the Islamic society can regain security lost from foreign interventions," said Houthi spokesman and chief negotiator Mohamed Abdulsalam. The Saudi-backed Yemeni government expressed some optimism — and caveats. "The Yemeni government's position depends on actions and practices not words and claims," it said, adding it would proceed cautiously "until observing a true change in (Iranian) behavior." Analysts did not expect an immediate settlement to the conflict, but said direct talks and better relations could create momentum for a separate agreement that may offer both countries an exit from a disastrous war. "The ball now is in the court of the Yemeni domestic warring parties to prioritize Yemen's national interest in reaching a peace deal and be inspired by this initial positive step," said Afrah Nasser, a non-resident fellow at the Washington-based Arab Center. Anna Jacobs, senior Gulf analyst with the International Crisis Group, said she believed the deal was tied to a de-escalation in Yemen. "It is difficult to imagine a Saudi-Iran agreement to resume diplomatic relations and re-open embassies within a two-month period without some assurances from Iran to more seriously support conflict resolution efforts in Yemen," she said. War-scarred Syria similarly welcomed the agreement as a move toward easing tensions that have exacerbated the country's conflict. Iran has been a main backer of Syrian President Bashar Assad's government, while Saudi Arabia has supported opposition fighters trying to remove him from power. The Syrian Foreign Ministry called it an "important step that will lead to strengthening security and stability in the region." In Israel, bitterly divided and gripped by mass protests over plans by Netanyahu's far-right government to overhaul the judiciary, politicians seized on the rapprochement between the kingdom and Israel's archenemy as an opportunity to criticize Netanyahu, accusing him of focusing on his personal agenda at the expense of Israel's international relations. Yair Lapid, the former prime minister and head of Israel's opposition, denounced the agreement between Riyadh and Tehran as "a full and dangerous failure of the Israeli government's foreign policy." "This is what happens when you deal with legal madness all day instead of doing the job with Iran and strengthening relations with the US," he wrote on Twitter. Even Yuli Edelstein from Netanyahu's Likud party blamed Israel's "power struggles and head-butting" for distracting the country from its more pressing threats. Another opposition lawmaker, Gideon Saar, mocked Netanyahu's goal of formal ties with the kingdom. "Netanyahu promised peace with Saudi Arabia," he wrote on social media. "In the end (Saudi Arabia) did it … with Iran." Netanyahu, on an official visit to Italy, declined a request for comment and issued no statement on the matter. But quotes to Israeli media by an anonymous senior official in the delegation sought to put blame on the previous government that ruled for a year and a half before Netanyahu returned to office. "It happened because of the impression that Israel and the US were weak," said the senior official, according to the Haaretz daily, which hinted that Netanyahu was the official. Despite the fallout for Netanyahu's reputation, experts doubted a detente would harm Israel. Saudi Arabia and Iran will remain regional rivals, even if they open embassies in each other's capitals, said Guzansky. And like the UAE, Saudi Arabia could deepen relations with Israel even while maintaining a transactional relationship with Iran. "The low-key arrangement that the Saudis have with Israel will continue," said Umar Karim, an expert on Saudi politics at the University of Birmingham, noting that the Israeli occupation of the West Bank remained more of a barrier to Saudi recognition than differences over Iran. "The Saudi leadership is engaging in more than one way to secure its national security."

  11. https://www.wnep.com/article/news/local/northampton-county/after-school-satan-club-comes-to-hellertown-saucon-valley-school-district-wnep-newswatch16/523-6ffa7f98-161d-4b0a-9096-01b839306e7e HELLERTOWN, Pa. — UPDATE: The Saucon Valley School district announced they will be closed Wednesday due to a threat. Original story: "Satan's not an evil guy. He wants you to learn and question why. He wants you to have fun and be yourself, and by the way, there is no Hell." That's what you hear on the Satanic Temple's website. Catchy, vibrant in color, and to the point. The After School Satan Club in the Saucon Valley School District is the first in the state of Pennsylvania and just one of ten in the country. A message sent to parents in the District Monday night grabbed the community's attention, reading in part, "Consistent with the law and criteria set out in SVSD Board policy and regulations, the district has approved an organization known as the 'After School Satan Club' to host gatherings after school hours, in the Saucon Valley Middle School." According to the 2001 Supreme Court ruling, if you allow one religious group to use your facilities, you legally open the door to all. "It is beyond any Superintendent; it is beyond any school board for them to say 'yes' or 'no.' It is in the hands of the Supreme Court of the United States of America," said June Everett, The National Campaign Director for the "After School Satan Club" with The Satanic Temple. Everett says the group only petitions to start a club if someone, in this case, a parent, reaches out first. "Usually, they found out that there is a 'Good News Club' or an Evangelical bible club operating out of their schools. Usually, they come to their own conclusion that they want an alternative to being able to send their child to if they don't necessarily identify with being an Evangelical Christian or want their child to particularly attend that club," Everett said. The Temple says it offers fun-based activities, such as art projects, science projects, anything a standard daycare would have, and that includes no religion. "So, at this time, we do not teach about non-theistic Satanism. So really we're inspired by the Seven Tenets, but we don't teach the kids to sing songs about the Seven Tenets, we don't tell them to go tell all their friends about the 'After School Satan Club,'" says Everett. The Temple says it is aware of what comes along with the word "Satan." "So, we are not worshippers. We do not believe in a supernatural Satan. We look to Satan as a symbol of standing up against Tyrannical authority. We do not subscribe to the ideology that the majority Christian faith views Satan as," Everett said. "To call it anything else and to take away the name we feel is not being transparent upfront about who are and what we're representing." The After School Satan Club at Saucon Valley plans to meet once per month to start. The first gathering is scheduled for March 8 in the middle school, which is located just outside the borough of Hellertown. "I understand the community gets upset. They don't know who we are; they don't know what we're about. They don't take the time to research us. So it is stressful on these school districts, and I feel empathy for that. And I apologize for that, but at the same time, it's not our fault we are exercising our First Amendment rights."
