Iranian MP: Saudi Regime Nearing Collapse
The Fars News Agency reports: “A senior Iranian legislator deplored the continued suppression of the Bahraini protesters by the Saudi troops deployed in the tiny Persian Gulf island, and warned that the move will result in the accelerated collapse of the Al- Saud dynasty in Saudi Arabia.

Israel urges Russia to reconsider Syrian arms deal
YnetNews.com reports: “As the unrest in Syria grows, so does the concern that arms deals pursued by the unstable Damascus regime may result in weapons ending up in terror groups’ hands.
In an interview with Russian news agency Interfax, Israeli Ambassador to Moscow Dorit Golender called on the Kremlin to revisit its intent to finalize a recent arms deal with Syria, which will see the latter get anti-ship cruise missiles.
The deal, which will see Russia supply Syria with two units of P-800 Yakhont missiles, was signed in 2007.
The situation is Syria is unstable, and can get worse at any time. We hope Russia will take this seriously, said Golender. We believe the risks and possible negative repercussions should be reconsidered.
Israel is concerned that weapons delivered to Syria may eventually end up in the hands of terror groups and terrorists, who will use them to carry out attacks on Israel. ” (Israel knows the danger Syria could create against their tiny nation.
