    The Saudi FM just days ago stated he felt short term sanctions were not an effective solution to the threat posed by Iran's nuclear ambitions. The Saudi FM didn't spell out what he thought the solution to that threat was. He didn't have to. He knows the Iranian nuclear threat hangs over Saudi Arabia as well as over Israel. And whatever objections the Saudis may have to the lack of an Israeli settlement freeze, or to the slow progress in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks - they are as nothing compared to the House of Saud's desire to maintain itself in the face of the Iranian threat. The Saudis and the Israelis are therefore in agreement on a very critical, existential question. Don't believe for a minute this HaAretz op/ed piece that says, outside of the the US, 'no other country could or would aid Israel'. They may be strange bedfellows, but Israel and Saudi Arabia - and I suspect several other nations - are tucked in the same bed - and that bed ain't 'made in the USA', folks. MV
