    For the first time in history, Israel and two other Arab nations are in agreement.
    According to the Weekend Australian newspaper, Egypt and Jordan have joined with Israel today to condemn Iran as the biggest potential problem in the Middle East.
    Iran is today's bogeyman they all agree. Not Israel.
    It isn't lost that the two moderate Arab states are Sunni and Iran is Shia, but this is a huge step. Imagine this at the time of the 6 day war.

    Times have changed. Nuclear explosions are everyone's business. If a pariah state decides to nuke a neighbor, the fall out can be carried by the wind to all the neighboring states. Gone are the days of simple conventional warfare considerations.

    I believe that this is a very important development, as Israel needs friends around her if she is going to deal with Iran. :israel:

    If Israel gets nuked Jordan and Egypt will definitely suffer the fallout. Also Egyptians and Jordanians are Sunni muslims and Iran is Shia, so they have never met eye to eye. Egypt and Jordan are wary of Iran and have better relations with Israel than Iran. They would love to see Iran's nuclear program be destroyed, whether its by Israel, USA or any others.

    Are we forgetting the guaranteed existence of Israeli nukes?
    Why worry about the possible threat from Iran when you have a GUARANTEED unsanctioned threat from Israel.

    India should know the double standards of sanctioning by the west. What did Israel get and what has India got... before they became an economic powerhouse of course.

    (from acquiring nuclear tech)

    Israel having Arab friends is nothing new. Look at the siege on Gaza this is with Egyptian cooperation because they of course share a border with Gaza.
