Saudi King Abdullah appealed to the world Tuesday to stop Israeli attacks on Lebanon, saying that if peace moves fail, the Middle East could be engulfed in war. In a statement read out on state television, the king said: "if the option of peace fails as a result of Israeli arrogance, then the only option remaining will be war, and God alone knows what the region would witness in a conflict that would spare no one." The statement, issued by the royal court, said that the Saudi government had been trying to bring a halt to the violence since it began on July 12, when Hizbullah guerrillas snatched two Israeli soldiers in a cross-border raid from Lebanon. "It must be said that patience can't last forever, and if the brutal Israeli military continues to kill and destroy, no one can foresee what may happen," the king said.
