    Presuming you are a loyal American, and if you care about the war on terrorism, you should be vitally interested in our relationships with our Muslim allies. The most effective US allies in the war against radical Islamic terrorism are our Arab allies. Countries like Saudi Arabia are in the front line, along with Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait and the Gulf states. They provide the US superb intelligence and military support. Recently, over a 4-day period, the Saudis killed 15 members of Al Qaeda, and they have over 200 in prison. It is also supporting Yemen on its NE border with air strikes against Islamic terrorist elements. (Al Qaeda.) You should know Israel is not involved in this fight. It talks big but considers Hamas and Hezbollah its primary terrorist targets. But they don't attack the US nor other nations involved in the fight, and are considered by everybody, but Israel, to be small potatoes and not worthy of attention. How many Al Qaeda members has Israel killed and imprisoned?
