When it Comes to Surrender, the Arabs Are Always United. Saudi foreign minister says he will attend Annapolis
Following Arab League meeting in Cairo Friday, Minister al-Faisal declares his country will attend US-sponsored Mideast peace conference, but that he will not allow 'theatrics' like handshakes with Israeli officials
"....Al-Faisal told a press conference that an Arab League meeting Friday had decided that Arab countries will attend Annapolis at the level of foreign minister. "I'm not hiding any secret about the Saudi position.
We were reluctant until today. And if not for the Arab consensus we felt today, we would not have decided to go," al-Faisal said. "But the kingdom would never stand against an Arab consensus, as long as the Arab position has agreed on attending, the kingdom will walk along with its brothers in one line."......"
This Arab unity is very touching indeed. Mark my words, and as I said before, Syria will also attend, probably at the level of foreign minister. That is why Syria decided to cancel the anti-Annapolis meeting in Damascus.
Long live Arab unity (but only in surrender)!
