I've Been Thinking:
The 6 Arab countries that compose the Gulf Cooperation Council just concluded their meeting in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The Council came to some very interesting and important decisions.
Interesting because the West can learn what these countries are thinking.
Important because the West must translate what was said into what was meant.
They said: that they call on Arab countries to fight terror
They mean: that terror does not include Palestinians killing Israelis
They said: that they are in favor of continued Iraqi democratization
They mean: that this does not mean they want democracy in their own countries
They said: they call for renewed peace talks between Palestinians and Israelis to establish a Palestinian State
They mean: they want total withdrawal to pre '67 borders
This is still a big step forward for the 6 Arab countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council.
