Arab affairs editor of the newspaper says that press information confirmed that the American intelligence and the Israeli intelligence apparatus possess a full file on each Arab ruler, particularly about his illegal financial asset deposited in foreign banks. These files are as a pressure cards in both intelligence organisations with which both American and Israeli governments can use against the Arab governments to force them offer concessions and the Arab silence towards the many of events. If the world silence is justified through the American and Israeli pressure, why then is there the Arab silence towards what is happening in south Lebanon and what is going on of war crimes against the Palestinian people in the occupied territories at the hands of the Israeli forces?
As for the secret of the Arab people silence the apparatuses of the Arab regimes are the ones to be asked through the public practice of terror and oppression.
