    Proves that the writer of the article has not even a cursory understanding of the Middle East.    Keep in mind we are talking about the rulers of Saudi Arabia.

    What is the one thing that the rulers of Saudi Arabia and Israel both fear?   The Arab "street."    Why did the Saudis support a brutal repression in Bahrain?    Why are they supporting the coup in Egypt?   What side of those issues has Israel been on?    Do either want democratic reforms where a nation's actions reflect the will of the people?

    I'm trying to think of any issue that the House of Saud and Israel actually disagree upon.    They talk about Palestine but do absolutely nothing.
