Brutal Arab dictators are worried about Iran because they view a resurgent Iran as a threat to their sphere of influence. Arab people do not even come close to sharing that concern. A recent poll by the Brookings Institute shows that only 10% of Arabs view Iran as a threat, whereas 88% view Israel as a threat, and 77% view the US as a threat. So it would be far more accurate to say a hand full of dictators support sanctions against Iran, but Iran's actual neighbours support sanctions against Israel. What does this tell us? The US prefers the views of brutal dictators to the views of the people they repress. It tells us that the US has unparalleled contempt for democracy.
