    So suddenly Saudia are the leaders of the muslim world. Hizballah, Al Queda, Hamas, IJ, Iran, even Fatah will not quit until there is no Israel left and they have all admited this. Even Abbas who is supposedly moderate calls for only using their weapons against Israel. (This is after receiving them from Israel). How can it be optimistic that Olmert and Rice will give into concessions due to their weakness at home and not logic and security for their people. This is the worst thing that can happen our own leaders giving in to our enemies so that they can stay in power. Israel must show strength and its probably too late to gain support from abroad. Our government has called terrorists who call for our destruction moderates, kicked and beaten the most faithful to this country out of their homes, given money weapons and freedom to terrorists who use it all to attack us again. Funny thing is its being repeated again and again with our enemies gaining strength each time.
