Saudi FM: Israel is Acting Like a Spoiled Child

Guess who is weighing in on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process with some harsh words for the State of Israel. None other than the Saudi Foreign Minister Saud Al-Faisal. This is a man who has a lot of credibility to criticize Israel. (that was supposed to be a joke by the way)  The Foreign Minister is calling Israel a "spoiled child" for building 700 new apartments in East Jerusalem in an area  which is the undivided capital of the State of Israel.

Mr. Al-Faisal, look who's calling the kettle black. If anyone in this conflict is a spoiled child, its the Arab world who occupies 22 countries in the Middle East (See the above map) and refuses to recognize the Jewish sovereignty of the State of Israel where Jews resided in the Land of Israel long before any of the Arab countries today ever existed. Moreover, the Arab world occupies vast stretches of land across the Middle East. Yet, the Arab world  is never satisfied with its own lot. Why are they not satisfied with occupying virtually the entire Middle East? Most entities would give away an arm and a limb to occupy the stretch of land that the Arab world occupies. The reason that they are not satisfied with possessing 22 Arab countries is because they  have not been successful in wiping a very small country about the size of New Jersey off the face of the map.  And, sadly, the temper tantrums of the Arab world will continue indefinitely because they will never be able to get their  hands on that one extra toy even though they have 22 much larger toys in their prized collection.

Now, you tell me Mr. Al-Faisal, who's the spoiled child?

Let the Arab countries rather reclaim the dignity and development of Somalia, then they will have a much bigger stretch of land to be proud of, where water sources can be used to lay out kibbutzes and draw contributors from around the world!
Let their energies be focused towards development rather than luxury and fretting. But let Izaac also remember that God made promises to Ishmael.
