Gulf countries have only one source of income and if cut they cannot survive, literally. It is in the interest of the world in general and specially peoples of this area not to start a mess because of Israel and the imaginative danger of Iran. Iran was isolated since 1979 and faced Saddam's invasion for eight years. So, if Iran is capable to stand against the US and its allies, that is after all not bad. Balance of terror brings stability and quiet. North Korea was able to stop all kind of victimization and aggresssion by having the mean to stand up against its ennemies. Iran, and every country has the right to be strong and arm itself whatever way it sees fit. So please stop playing on our nerve and Israel must be pressed against crying wolf and pretending to be the victim.
