If Fatah is waiting for Israel to crush Hamas then surely and even more so, the Saudis are looking for Israel to diminish the Iranian threat. Iran has its tentacles all over arabia for it is the light that is pulling all the shiites together.The UAE is vulnerable with big shiite populations and sunni rulers and then there is the relationship between the US and the Saudis and the control of oil. Iraq's vacumn gave Iran a push and Ahmandinejad's Holocaust conference was the rallying cry for their own rennaissance. Hamas having little support around the world and with the sunnis had to turn to Teheran and became part of the same fight. Its the Israelis who are the perfect foil for the counter Iranian push as the Saudis and Fatah want to curb their adversaries but still be seen in a good arab light.Call on Israel and they still look good.
