One Cheer, but Don't Take Another Bow!

Reader comment on item: One Cheer for Obama's Arab-Israeli Policy

Submitted by Alex (United States), Sep 16, 2009 at 18:13

"King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia rejected Obama's appeal for CBMs vis-à-vis Israel during a presidential visit in early June. Rozen reports that the Saudi monarch "launched a tirade during Obama's long meeting in Riyadh." It went so badly that Saudi officials "later apologized to the U.S. president for the king's behavior." Perhaps that is what happens when you bow to someone objectively less powerful than you are.
