The sign on this Lebanese poster says: "The massacre of children in Qana 2, is the gift of Rice. Smart Bombs..Stupid"
Its revealing that a regime that does not allow its own people to celebrate the birthday of their Prophet Muhammad(SAW), is happy to organize a little party in Jeddah to celebrate the birthday of US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. The Saudi princes even sang “happy birthday” to her! And all this just a few months after the massacre of the Lebanese that she was directly responsible for (by her blocking the ceasefire).
Only one paragraph and photo from the original Washington Post article are reproduced here. The main theme of the article was about Saudi agreement to bankroll US's war on terror:
Both nations want to revive the kind of partnership set up by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in the early 1970s on everything from joint military planning to energy policy -- an arrangement that was pivotal to their cooperation during the 1979-1989 Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, a senior Saudi official said Sunday. Coordinated Saudi funding and U.S. arms to the opposition mujaheddin "rolled back communism," the official said. The aim now is to work together to end terrorism, he added.

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal celebrates US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's 51st birthday.
"To underscore the friendship, the Saudi foreign minister presented Rice with a chocolate birthday cake inscribed to her and with the flags of both nations. The Saudi delegation then sang "Happy Birthday" to her, U.S. officials said. Rice turns 51 on Monday."
