The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Dissonance in Diplomacy

Says the Ambassador of Saudia Arabia at the Annapolis summit:

Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States rejected recognizing Israel as a Jewish state.

"There are 1.5 million civilians in Israel who do not define themselves as Jewish," Adel al-Jubeir told reporters at the U.S.-convened Israeli-Palestinian peace talks in Annapolis, Md.

"We do not believe states should define themselves according to religion or ethnicity."

Says the Saudi Arabian constitution:

Article 1
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a sovereign Arab Islamic state with Islam as its religion; God's Book and the Sunnah of His Prophet, God's prayers and peace be upon him, are its constitution, Arabic is its language and Riyadh is its capital.

Methinks that anyone who treats Abel al-Jubeir as an honourable diplomatic representative is most certainly tilting at windmills. (source: The Elder)
