Our Friends the Saudis
You mean the Saudis lied when they said they would stop participating in the Arab League boycott of Israel? Shocka!
Leading Democratic and Republican congressmen expressed outrage following a report in Monday’s Jerusalem Post that Saudi Arabia has been violating its promise to Washington to stop enforcing the Arab League boycott of Israel.
Democrat Howard Berman of California, Chairman of the powerful House Foreign Affairs Committee, told the Post from Washington that he had read the report in Monday’s paper.
“This is a very disturbing report,” Berman said, “particularly in light of the fact that US officials assured us four years ago that Saudi Arabia would abandon the boycott as the condition for its entry into the World Trade Organization.”
