Saudis/Egyptians to Rice - we won't isolate Hamas.

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia -- Saudi Arabia on Wednesday became the second Arab ally in as many days to reject the U.S. strategy of financially isolating Hamas if the terrorist group does not moderate its policies as leader of the Palestinians.

A day earlier, Rice had stood by as Saud's Egyptian counterpart said it was premature to cut off aid to a Hamas-led government.

And I suppose all that pillaging, burning, rioting and just plain making terrorists of themselves didn't convince 'em that Hamas doesn't really have a record of being nice for no reason. Hmm. Convinced me pretty darn well. I guess Prince Saud and I think differently.
