Guess who Yemen's president blames Arab protests on? (updated)

One guess:
Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh accused Israel of financing and plotting protests in his country and other Arab states, and criticized U.S. President Barack Obama for expressing support for the protesters.

Saleh, speaking to a gathering of Sanaa University professors and students, said Obama was "meddling in the affairs of Arab countries."
Well, that was an easy one.

UPDATE: More details from JPost:
"There is an operations room in Tel Aviv with the aim of destabilizing the Arab world," Saleh said as he gave a speech at Sanaa University. He explained that the "operations room" is "run by the White House."
