Arab Times Editor supports Israel's actions

Kuwait, long a major enemy of Israel, started having second thoughts last year and some major internal policy shifts have been in the the works. I noted the apparent first phase of this shift back in October and realized something significant was going on with arab politics.

Now we see the second phase of this shift - outright support for Israel eliminating what is viewed as troublesome actors in the middle east.

Can anyone in their right mind believe such tectonic policy shifts could have happened with Saddam still in power and the Syrian still in Lebanon?

What we are witnessing is is international sausage making. Its unpleasant to watch and messy, but the final result will be tasty.

Arab Times Online
...Saudi Arabia has been forced to come out of its diplomatic routine and indirectly hold Hezbollah responsible for what is happening Lebanon...

The Kingdom has also said “these elements must take responsibility for their irresponsible actions and they alone should end the crisis created by them.”...

Unfortunately we must admit that in such a war the only way to get rid of “these irregular phenomena” is what Israel is doing. The operations of Israel in Gaza and Lebanon are in the interest of people of Arab countries and the international community.
