WASHINGTON (JTA) -- The percentage of Arabs who believe a nuclear-armed Iran will help the Middle East situation has doubled since last year.
The annual Brookings Institute poll, released Thursday, found that 57 percent of Arabs think a nuclear-armed Iran will cause a “more positive” situation in the Middle East, up from 29 percent last year.

MAD worked in the Cold War, we're still here. Why wouldn't it work for the middle east? The only problem I see is that Israel doesn't want to lose it's big edge.
Let's face it, if Iran nuked Israel who would back them? No one and they know that. Ajadanutjob just speaks to be heard. Like Little Kim. Iran isn't going to nuke Israel. They'd be the world's pariah and they know it.

This is a related story about the relationship between the Arab countries and Iran. Israel is the enemy of their enemy, Iran. It's complicated.
