Rice Rebufffed

Huh. I guess blood is thicker than anti-democracy.

Egypt and now the Saudis have both refused to cut-off funding for the Palestinian Authority but claim that they will encourage Hamas to accept a two-state solution in the region. Rice now heads to the UAE, but considering how their US ports contract is faring state-side, I doubt that they will be terribly responsive to any of Rice's requests. Likely, they will adopt the same stance as other Arab nations so far.
