    Nonsense. Can you name any threat from the Arab world in the last 30 years? Hamas and Hezbollah don't represent the Arab world. What does 9/11 have to do with the Arab world? It was not behind 9/11. The most effective US allies in war against radical Islamic terrorism are US 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. Jordan is one of the most effective services in the world against Al Qaeda. 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 with air strikes against Al Qaeda. Israel is not involved in this fight. It considers Hamas and Hezbollah its primary terrorist targets. But they don't attack the US nor other nations involved in the fight. They are not worthy of world attention. How many Al Qaeda members has Israel killed and imprisoned?
