    A population of 80 million reasonably well educated people cannot remain isolated forever. It's size and wealth means that it will be a significant player in the region. Amazingly, Netanyahu omits to mention the human rights abuses in Saudia Arabia. The Saudis were responsible for the rise of the Taliban in Afganistan, and sponsor Jemiah Islamia in Indonesia. 19 of the 21 terrorists in 9/11 came from Saudia Arabia. They are also sponsoring some of the opposition groups in Syria whom have enforced strict Sharia law in the areas it controls and is terrorising the locals. ut Netanyahu doesn't care about that. He should make a concerted effort to make a reasonable deal with the Palistinians, and then the rest of the world may treat his words with more respect.

    from the article: What if Netanyahu gave a powerful speech on Iran - but no one really heard?
