What is the capture of one Israeli soldier worth to Saudi royalty? Nearly a million dollars:
A Saudi royal offered a $900,000 reward to anyone who captures an Israeli soldier, on Saturday. Prince Khaled bin Talal, the brother of business tycoon and Fox News co-owner Walid bin Talal, told the Saudi-based broadcaster Al Daleel that the captive would then be released in exchange for Arabs held in Israeli prisons.
Khaled's offer comes days after the prominent Saudi cleric, Awad al-Qarni, put $100,000 on the head of every Israeli soldier.
The Saudi offers follows the recent deal between the Israeli government and Hamas, when Israel agreed to release 1,027 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for Gilad Shalit.
When is the United States going to start taking advantage of domestic energy sources? The idea that the U.S. gets the majority of its oil from a country extremely hostile to Israel will only become a greater problem as behavior like this from the Arab world continues.
Let's not forget President Obama took the side of Hamas and the Arab world when he called for Israel to return to 1967 borders in May.
