Reader comment on item: Arabs Disavow Hizbullah

Submitted by Vijay (United Kingdom), Jul 26, 2006 at 15:29

Saudi/Egypt anti-Hezbollah statements are more a sign of anxiety at Iranian influence and possible ascendency rather than specific anti-terrorism stance.

Be that as may, Israel must do with whatever cracks in the wall of enmity from Arabs and get the maximum mileage. Any sign of weakness in the enemy front must be made most of.
