CAIRO (Reuters) -- Iraq's representative to the Arab League said on Friday that Arab states should use oil as a weapon to put pressure on the United States and Israel over the attacks on Gaza.

"Iraq will invite (Arab) ministers to use the weapon of oil, with the aim of asserting real pressure on the United States and whoever stands with Israel," Qais al-Azzawy told reporters in Cairo on Friday.

"The economic weapon is the strongest one to be put into effect now, to assure of standing by the Palestinian people, in light of there being no military power that can stand in the face of Israel at the present time."

This is a great statement and it is about time that Arab leaders start to think about using oil supplies as pressure to enforce justice our way of saying "Either you are with justice or no oil for you". I highly doubt that this course of action has even been suggested, so it must be a cruel rumor, specially when coming from an Iraqi representative when Iraq is still under American occupation. I hope I am wrong though and the Arab leaders use it or be thrown out by the now proud Arab populace.
