Secretary's Epiphany

Reader comment on: The Secretary's Epiphany

Submitted by L. Fayman (United States), Apr 24, 2013 20:33

The president's positive visit to Israel, the shoring up of the U.S.-Israel alliance against Iran, and the concurrent arms sales to Saudi Arabia and Qatar -- Iran's primary adversaries in the Gulf -- are positive steps toward restoring the proper proportion of favorable attention to friends and negative attention to adversaries.

I have grave doubts about the wisdom of selling arms to Saudi Arabia. The Saudis' are not our friends. They fund madrassas, mosques, academic chairs of Middle East Studies in our colleges and universities. They are a major source of jihadi outreach and Islamic supremacy ideology. Catering to the Saudis is a huge mistake.
