This is just a tad ironic
Finally, Crown Prince Abdullah can empathize with Ariel Sharon.
And if you don't believe DEBKAfile, read The Guardian:
The leaders of Yemen and Saudi Arabia are due to meet today in an effort to settle a dispute over a security barrier the Saudis are building along their shared frontier. Saudi Arabia, which is battling against insurgents sympathetic to Osama bin Laden, says the barrier will stem the flow of militants and weapons from its southern neighbour.
Of course, the Saudis "dismiss" comparisons with Israel's security fence, once again proving one of TigerHawk's governing maxims: "Middle Easterners have little appreciation for irony."
