Fascinating account of meetings between FDR and Ibn Saud

I stumbled across this small book at an anti-Israel site. Written by William Eddy, a State Department Arabist who facilitated and attended meetings between US Presidents and the leaders of Saudi Arabia.

While it was written from an unabashedly pro-Arab perspective, the details are believable.

The last sentence by Truman is what has made this a popular quote at Israel-hating sites.
