SAUDI REFLECTIONS: U.S.-Israeli Plans for Hegemony in the Middle East

Things do not bode well for the Arab world.

Recent incidents which have come to light reveal a sinister plan aimed at keeping the region under U.S.-Israeli hegemony.

Mysterious events have occurred which the majority of Arabs know nothing about.

The U.S.-sponsored peace process is itself in serious trouble. Netanyahu's policies which draw no criticism from Madeleine Albright and her cohorts such as Dennis Ross and Martin Indyk have increased the prospects of war. Already the majority of Israelis feel that there is a greater chance for war under Netanyahu. …
