If the Saudis were smart, they'd move toward a closer understanding with the Israelis. But with Uncle Sam cleaning up everybody's troubles in that part of the world, they don't have to.

A move toward American disengagement from the Middle East may be best for everyone- except the terrorists.

IMO, the problem is that Israel is a modern nation-state, while the so-called Arab “nations” are actually collections of competing tribes. The old saw about all politics being local is never as true as in Arab society.
