Reader comment on item: Arabs Disavow Hizbullah

"...Second, these criticisms could well be abandoned as popular anger at Israel mounts or the crisis passes..."

"Popular anger" from the "Arab street". A real cliche. That is a given. So when is the old "Arab street" not going to be angry at Israel?

But even the guys in charge are already dropping the "don't blame Israel, blame Iran" game.

Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah is threatening Israel today, which he wouldn't be doing if helping Israel mop up Hezbollah was such a priority for him.
