If Obama was a man with a vision.

In my opinion the last paragraph was the most important to us in the US.The correct statement that no matter how close we- Obama - can be with the Saudis , no matter how they agree on the severe danger coming from Iran to the Saudis and many in the Arab world , at the end the Saudis will not go all the way with us againt IRAN .Because Iran is Muslim. Iran, however, does not share this kind of discipline of not hurting fellow Muslims whether shia or sunni anywhere.We saw what Hizbollah did to Lebanese in Lebanon and what Hamas did - do - to Palestinians in Gaza and the west bank.Muslim Al Kaeda is murdering Muslims anywhere they can put a bomb and they are originally Saudis!

If we could find a way to explain this to Obama our dealing with the middle east burning situaton will be at least based on facts and reality rather than on desert mirages and the fata morgana that if we will squeeze the life out of Israel all will be well between Muslims and between Muslims and the non Muslim world and maybe Iran will produce light fixtures in their Nuclear labs and will not touch the Saudis.

In light of all of this one wonders why the Saudis called upon the US infidel -women included- to save them from the scud missilles sent their way by their Muslim brother Saddam.Maybe they prefared an infidel fighting the Muslim - such as he was- rather than faithful Muslims as they themselves are.Godalmighty, history is dripping with wars between Muslims !

All this brings me to think that there will never be peace with Israel because this is the one and only thing that unites all these hating Muslims.It is a good size fig leaf, for sure, but if Obama was really a man with a vision he could have peaked under the dress and see the truth.
