Saudi Arabia says it’s offering an initiative for peace with Israel.
Crown Prince Abdullah presented no actual proposal – just hype amid worldwide speculation and undeserved plaudits. But he’s getting a diplomatic makeover despite:
- Riyadh’s continued funding of schools that sow fanatical hatred of the US and serve as terrorist recruitment grounds;
- the kingdom’s refusal to make a full and public expression of regret over the September 11 attacks perpetrated by its citizens;
- its constraints on the US to use its own regional assets against terrorism.
Hope that Saudi Arabia will now be part of the Arab-Israeli peace process gives Riyadh room to continue undermining US operations against Iraq, rewards one-and-a-half years of suicide bombings, and will re-open the Arabs’ war option against Israel, providing the avenues of attack to “drive the Jews into the sea.”
