Israel, Gulf in 'strange alliance' against Iran

When U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made another stop in the Middle East this month, he received an expected earful over Washington's outreach to Iran: Don't trust Tehran, tighten sanctions even more, anything short of complete nuclear concessions is a grave mistake.

This whole story leaves me a bit torn and by that I mean that I would like to see an agreement that would stop the bomb making. It's just hard to think of a way for everyone to gain and keep peace because all sides have reason to mistrust the other. I'm hoping some small measurable step can can be taken so that movement toward the end game as stated in article could be seen.

The Saudi's and the Jews want to drag the U.S. into war with Iran to keep their strategic power advantage in tact. Israel wants to be the dominant nuclear power with no completion, while Saudi Arabia want to control the oil markets and for religious reasons, sunni vs shite. We have no dog in this race, only bribed politicians

A Saudi-Israeli alliance wouldn't last the course.
The Royal family in Arabia is already under scrutiny at home for being too close to the Washington. Accepting permanent US bases on its territory (a sin according to many Muslims) already met some opposition in society.
An open alliance with the Jewish state could unleash an uproar in the kingdom and the Arab world never seen before that could unseat the royal family from power.
And there are a lot of salafist and extreme Islamic groups that could feel the vacuum.
After all, Al Qeada emanated from Saudi Arabia in the first place.
