    Persia's nuclear ambitions are more of an existential threat to the Arabs than Israel. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia would love nothing more than to have Israel or the US neutralize this threat. Persia's ambitions are obvious: A total colonizing of the Arabs under Shiite rule and their interpretation of Sharia law. The Sunni's, although they share they hate for Israel, hate Persia more. The West should "stir the soup" between these two groups. Arabs need Israel to deflect Persia's advancement and foothold in Arab lands and they know it. The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is nothing more than a smoke screen to the bigger problem that exists in the Middle East. The West should do to Persia as the US did to Russia during the Cuban missile conflict - a total blockade of goods and services headed in and out of Persia ports and total inspection of any cargo ship headed its way.
