A diplomatic day

It is a slow news day in the Middle East, so I’m going to do the daily updates here in one post.

First, US Defense Secretary Bob Gates is headed to Saudi Arabia.  There, he will discuss US arms deals with Saudi Arabia, the role of Iran, and US policies regarding Egypt.

Next, the peace plan drafted by prominent Israelis is now out, and Al Jazeera has the full text of the document.

Finally, BBC News is reporting on an air strike in Sudan hit a car, killing two.  The Sudanese claim that the Israelis are responsible, although no party has yet claimed responsibility.  One of the passengers is unidentified, the other presumed to be a Sudanese man.  The popular suspicion is that the car was somehow involved in smuggling arms to Gaza.
