Middle East: Remember Jerusalem

January 1978
National Review;1/20/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 3, p76
The article focuses on the role of Saudi Arabia in the settlement of the territorial conflict in Palestine, particularly East Jerusalem. Any settlement regarding the area should be satisfactory to Saudi Arabia. In a way, they can destroy the economy of Egypt and weaken the United States and Western Europe. The Saudis do not want East Jerusalem to be exclusively under Israeli control. Very little media attention has been given to the conflict in Jerusalem.
