Classification of moderate against extremist is like Bush axe of evil and axe of good !! What Rice did not pronounce is that those moderate should stand with Israel against their nation !! Israel is the focal of distability in the region, not of stability as indicated in End of Evil.
Israel today is a Nazi, fundamentalist, terrorist state. Israel rejects more than 60 UN resolutions, Israel has a big WMD arsenal. Israel occupies 78% of Palestine. Israel implants colonies in 50% of the rest, so Palestinians are left with only 11% of their land . Israel bombards Palestine civilians with American arms , Israel expelled millions of refugees abroad, deprived form return right.
We think the most dangerous project of new Middle East aiming to split Arab and Muslim countries in the region in civil war against each other , is the most to be fought.
It is an Israeli agenda , well conceived to creat civil wars in the region as in Iraq, Lebanon,Palestine to serve the state of Israel. The time is running short for Arab unity ,Muslim common market, and proposed sanctions against true axe of evil .

Rice arrives for Mideast tour dominated by Iran
by Sylvie Lanteaume
JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia (AFP) - United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrived in Saudi Arabia on the first leg of a Middle East tour set to be dominated by the Iran nuclear stand-off.
Efforts to restart the stalled Middle East peace process were also on the agenda for Rice's talks on Monday evening with Saudi Arabian King Abdullah and Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal.
On the aircraft to Shannon, Ireland, where she made a stopover Monday on the way to Saudi Arabia, Rice said the six-nation group trying to persuade Iran to drop its nuclear activities could meet later this week in Europe.
"We did have a discussion on the importance of remaining firm on (UN) Resolution 1696 which means that if the Iranians don't suspend, then we go to the Security Council for sanctions," she said.
The five permanent UN Security Council members -- China, France, Russia, Britain and the United States -- plus Germany, have offered Iran both economic and diplomatic incentives, including a pledge not to slap sanctions on the country, to persuade Tehran to drop its nuclear activities.
So far Iran has vowed to continue its uranium enrichment programme.
Riyadh "considers it necessary to continue the dialogue with a view to a peaceful agreement" over Iran's nuclear ambitions, which was also of concern to other Arab countries in the region, said a Saudi official who requested anonymity.
Washington needs the support of its Arab allies, including Saudi Arabia and other oil-rich Gulf states, which are also concerned about Iran's nuclear drive.
As Rice landed in Jeddah, a senior US official in Washington said US diplomats have made "good progress" in gaining allies' approval for a list of sanctions to be imposed on Iran if it fails to freeze uranium enrichment.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the situation in Iraq and the crisis in Lebanon were also to figure on the agenda, the Saudi official said.
"Saudi leaders will appeal to Ms. Rice to relaunch the Middle East peace process and to firm up George W. Bush's vision of two states, Israeli and Palestinian," he said.
On her flight to Jeddah, Rice told journalists she intended to hold talks with King Abdullah about ways to help Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas and Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Siniora.
Saudi Arabia has offered a total of 1.5 billion dollars (1.17 billion euros) to the effort to rebuild Lebanon following the July-August conflict between Israel and the Shiite Hezbollah movement.
"I want Saudi's involvement in the stabilization of Iraq, I want Saudi's involvement in the stabilization of Lebanon, through resources and political support," said Rice.
Riyadh had a role to play in Iraq as it had contacts with a certain number of forces in the war-torn country, said the US secretary of state.
"Saudi Arabia has a lot of standing with a number of the forces in Iraq and they've actually been very helpful in trying to get Sunnis involved in the elections," Rice added.
"I think it would be very helpful if they were supportive of and working toward helping Prime Minister Maliki's national reconciliation plan, for instance."
Rice is to hold a news conference with Faisal on Tuesday morning before heading to Egypt. She is also to visit Israel and the Palestinian territories as part of the trip.
In Cairo, she is to have a meeting with the foreign ministers of Egypt, Jordan and the six monarchies that make up the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) -- Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar.
Commenting on this meeting en route to the Middle East, the secretary of state said the United States was depending on the grouping of moderate Arab allies in order to restart the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
In Israel and the Palestinian territories, Rice will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, as well as Palestinian president Abbas.
Her arrival in the region comes after violent clashes between supporters of Abbas' Fatah party and Hamas, the Islamist movement that has led the Palestinian government since coming to power earlier this year.
