Dr. Pipes

Thank you very much and a very interesting examination of the Geneva deal. Saudi Arabia wants stability in the Middle East at any price. I suspect that they realize that the so called "Arab spring" might be heading their way.

I do believe that the only way to defeat the Jihadi menace in Syria is to side with Iran but this means that Israel and the US should be supporting Iran which in turn is fighting the Jihadis in Syria with the help of the Shia militia from Lebanon after all the enemy of my enemy is my friend
