Disavowing more than Hezbollah

Reader comment on item: Arabs Disavow Hizbullah

Submitted by Jay (United States), Jul 27, 2006 at 00:17

What the Arab states are feeling is what Israel has on its hands in southern Lebanon and Gaza. Its what happens when a lot of bad guys get close to your border and they bring all their toys..And as one can see in Iraq, even America "may" not be able to stem the tide.

Saudi Arabia has complained recently that large powers have disrupted the natural lay of the land.Thats code for the United States has overthrown sunni Saadam but opened the door to Shia Iran. Saudi Arabia has a point. Jordan still misses the point. Someday Israel will defeat hezbollah in southern Lebanon. Maybe. And then the day will come when Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan will have to decide about other lays of the land. Like the Golan heights and the Jordan Valley.The Golan heights will either go to Israel or Irans best friend. And the Jordan Valley will either go to Israel or Hamas best friend.

One hopes that when selfish Syria says that was yesterday, today I'm sunni, the lay of the land will prevail over safety zones and resolutions that cant be monitored let alone defended. To say that some Arab countries are feeling a "wisp" Israeli right now may be a stretch. To say being Israeli is tuff stuff is no stretch.
