    "The only thing the Arabs have to offer Israel is diplomatic recognition." No, Cipora. They can offer PEACE. A chance for Israel to live without worrying about the next "existential threat" lurking just around the corner. But I gather from your tone that you simply don't care for such namby-pamby; Might makes right, and the rest of the world can go kiss my ass, I imagine. But you really can't feel the wind changing, can you? Don't know why, coz even dim ol' GWB can feel it on the back of his neck. The USA is swinging towards the Arabs, and it ain't because they suddenly LIKE them, but because they suddenly NEED them. So what happens when a Prez decides he needs the Arab's influence in the region more than he needs the Jewish vote back home, Cipora? He'll throw Israel to the dogs. And the current Saudi dog is a poodle compared to what's out there, so I suggest you start patting.
