Gulf States look to Israel for protection from Iran

This is rich.

According to the president of the Kuwaiti Centre for Strategic Studies, the Persian Gulf nations are looking for Israel to protect them against Iran by taking out Iran's nuclear capabilities.
Sami Alfaraj, president of the Kuwait Centre for Strategic Studies, went on to say that if Iran did acquire a nuclear bomb, Gulf states would appeal to Israel, as well as to the United States and Pakistan, to help ensure their security.

Alfaraj, who acts as adviser to both the GCC secretary general and Kuwait's prime minister, foreign ministry and National Security Bureau, said a nuclear Iran would drag nations from far beyond the Persian Gulf into an arms race.

He added that countries who could not build their own nuclear weapons would seek a "nuclear umbrella" - even if they had to appeal to Israel.

"I believe in something on the same Iraqi [Osirak reactor] model... We are assuming in the Gulf that Israel will take it out," Alfaraj told Reuters.
But of course, if Israel does it, they will all join the condemnation.

Which reminds me - the way the world treats good and evil is different from the way it is judged in the Next World. There things are judged very differently, as G-d does not judge as Man does.
