Arab states hold emergency meeting on Iran, Hezbollah

Saudi Arabia and other Arab foreign ministers held an emergency meeting in Cairo on Sunday to discuss ways to confront Iran and its Lebanese Shi’ite ally Hezbollah, who the Arab allies say are interfering in their internal affairs.

Regional tensions have risen in recent weeks between Sunni monarchy Saudi Arabia and Shi’ite Islamist Iran over Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri’s surprise resignation and after an escalation in Yemen’s conflict.

    Damn the Saudis. Damn the Iranians. Damn the Israelis. No arms deals. Stay out of the mess.

    Instead, sit back, and watch the Mohammedans fight it out.

      Israelis are not Mohammedans, and if they are forced into wheeling-dealing with with the less hysterical anti-Israel states among them, it is only because the US has completely lost control of the region.

        The Israelis can fend for themselves.

        Not our tent. Not our circus.

          Perhaps then we need to butt out and stop meddling in their affairs and politics; in other words stop trying to force them to accept genocide by the Arabs in the false name of peace and stop all funding of NGOs trying to overthrow the country. If we did that, then I would be in full agreement with your comment.

      Israelis hold the regional balance of power and everybody knows it, including the Russians.

    Wherever islamics gather large explosive should be detonated.

    If they Duke it out let’s just sit it out. But it will he a proxy war I think or more terrorism like islam does Muslim killing Muslims. (Can’t deny that fact but I could have my life destroyed by stating it publicly)

    A sunni/Shia genocidal war would be nice to see. We could sell weapons to both sides.
