Just who is behaving like a spoiled child?

Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal, who ought to know a thing or two about spoiled children, accused Israel on Saturday of acting like a 'spoiled child' for refusing to concede its future security before entering into negotiations with the fake 'people' that al-Faisal and his fellow Arab Muslims invented.
The Saudi foreign minister on Saturday criticized Israel's settlement construction and said the country acts like a "spoiled child" because the international community is not tough enough in pressuring it to make concessions.

Prince Saud al-Faisal said Washington and other players in Mideast peace efforts should take a "firm and serious" stand to put an end to Israeli construction on land Palestinians want for a future state.

Israel's announcement Monday that it is building nearly 700 new apartments for Jews in east Jerusalem is "a source of worry, which we strongly condemn," he said.


"The reason why a solution cannot be reached is the preferential treatment that Israel gets," he said. "When other countries violate international law, they get punished, except for Israel. If war crimes are committed, other countries get punished, except Israel.

"Israel has become in the international community like a spoiled child," he said. "It does what it wants without being questioned or punished."

Saud spoke after a meeting with his Turkish counterpart, Ahmet Davutoglu, whose country has long been Israel's closest ally in the Muslim world, though relations were strained over last winter's war in Gaza.

Davutoglu said Israel should end the "catastrophe and calamity" in the Gaza Strip and should freeze settlement building.
The last time I looked, Israel was ready, willing and able to resume negotiations unconditionally, while the 'Palestinians' were unwilling to resume them until all their demands were met up front. It seems to me that al-Faisal has branded the wrong party as the 'spoiled child.'

Its not Israel that is blocking negotiations. But you'd never know that from Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal's remarks. In the Middle East, reality is often inverted.
