The incoming Biden administration will likely decide to tilt foreign policy towards Iran and away from Israel. As an outpost of Western values in the Middle East, the Democrats and the upcoming Biden administration loathe Israel, just as did the Obama-Biden administration before them. One recalls the secret palates of cash sent to the theocratic fanatics in Tehran on the last day the Obama-Biden administration was in power. Now, those people are back in office and they return with an anti-Israeli attitude never seen in modern American diplomatic history on either side of the aisle.
The Biden administration has already said it will reinstate the Iran Nuclear Treaty, which will in two years enable the Iranians to deploy nuclear missiles that can hit Israel. Such a likely Iranian strike would send the region up in flames. Israel has its own nuclear deterrent and would strike back hard. The world economy would be crippled.
Israel, the current US administration, and Riyadh know this scenario is very possible. Are the three allies planning a military strike to take out the Iranian nuclear capability before Biden takes office? Reports of a recent secret meeting that was intentionally leaked says that is a real possibility.
FNC: “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu traveled overnight by a civilian jet to Saudi Arabia reportedly for a secret meeting with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, which would mark the first known encounter between senior Israeli and Saudi officials. A Gulfstream IV private jet left Tel Aviv on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. local time and flew directly to the seaside resort town of Neom, according to FlightRadar. Netanyahu headed back to Israel after two hours on the ground, arriving in Tel Aviv half past midnight. Israeli chief spy and the head of Mossad, Yossi Cohen, joined the meeting, which was also attended by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.” The Saudis denied the report, which means it definitely happened.
I have seen press reports about a purported meeting between HRH the Crown Prince and Israeli officials during the recent visit by @SecPompeo. No such meeting occurred. The only officials present were American and Saudi.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu commented on the meeting, “My friends, I never reacted to these things along the years as prime minister and I will not do so now. All the years as prime minister I did all I can to strengthen Israel and enlarge the circle of peace,” he said. “I hope this circle gets wider.” Indeed he does if Israel hopes to survive the Biden administration and its team of Iranian apologists and Islamist appeasers.
