US welcomes Saudi summit pledge

Posted in Uncategorized by Patrick Truax on November 24, 2007

US officials have welcomed the decision by Saudi Arabia to attend next week’s Middle East peace conference at Annapolis in the US.
“This is a signal that they believe this will be a serious and substantive meeting,” the US state department said.

Speaking at an Arab League meeting in Cairo, the Saudi foreign minister said he would go but ruled out a “theatrical show” with Israeli officials.

How can a country who sentences a rape victim to 200 lashes, be taken seriously on the Diplomatic Stage? The Saudi’s presence here is embarrassing and is a slap in the face to all of those (and there are many) who oppose Saudi Islamic law.
