Reader comment on item: Giuliani's Fresh Start
in response to reader comment: I Hope Rudy Will Talk To Us About Oil -- Iran Will Be Decided Before 08 -- We're Talking While They're Building Up Defenses

I don't think the Saudis give a damn about Palestinians, or Ahmadinejad (so long as the U.S. takes care of him).

Idealistically, a "hit" by Israel on Hamas and, simultaneously, a "hit" on Iran's nuclear depots, on the part of the U.S., would send a message, loud and clear.

Saudi Arabia cares more about their oil-revenue money than their Mullahs. The only thing "radical Islam" serves in their point of view is so the masses will point their finger at the Great Shatan and not them.

I don't believe the U.S. allowing fringe-Islamism to exist here is based on fear of losing Arab oil. It's based on the fine line that is freedom of speech and freedom of religion. America has not completely educated itself. I daresay it never will; it will take another 9-11 to convince the overwhelming majority of Democrates.

I've got a hunch Giuliani has set his eyes on a NATO-Israel alliance.
