Other Arab Nations??

Reader comment on item: Does Israel Need a [Peace] Plan?

Submitted by A. J. (United States), Feb 2, 2003 at 22:17

I appreciated the clear and lucid discussion of this topic. However, I wonder if it doesn't overlook the other Arab nations in the Middle East. Repressive dictatorships like Syria, Saudi Arabia, Etc. have, in my view, used this conflict and Israel itself to redirect the hostility of their people and save themselves. So long as the other arab governments benefit from the conflict, peace seems impossible.
