As the Gaza conflict rages on in the Middle East, the Saudi and the Arab League response has been more low-key then usual. Joe Kechichian is a Gulf States scholar and senior writer for the Dubai-based Gulf News. He’s written numerous books on the Gulf region, including his latest, Legal and Political Reforms in Saudi Arabia. Kechichian tells us why he thinks the reaction of Israel's neighbors has been more tempered this time around and how the conflict may affect U.S. policy across the region.
