this vital issue... which has been central in at least two wars in 1956 and 1967... At a minimum Saudia should be required to issue a WRITTEN statement or addendum to the Camp David accords explicitly committing to the right of Israeli travel thru the Straits of Tiran; such a statement should then be adopted by UN Security Council. Meanwhile spare us the BS about "first solving the Palestinian issue" - which has zero connection to the Straits of Tiran. If Saudia cannot bring itself to do what is minimally necessary to assure freedom of international shipping in the Straits, perhaps Israel needs to re-occupy the islands until iron-clad assurances are forthcoming. Objectively Tiran & Sanapir are far more important to Israel than to Saudia - which possesses infinitely more territory and sea coast than the "Zionists"...

No matter how much land these guys have, they will never know what to do with it. Wish we never gave Sinai up. look at it now. A wasteland with no future, but bunch of mullahs killing people there.
