Shared Intrest

Hi Friends!

In the press I found it interesting that some are saying that the Iranians are shifting away from the weaponry aspect in their Nuclear development.

This has been assessed by aspects of Israeli intelligence gathering.

Having said that, you may have noticed that other so-called major powers intelligence services are realizing that for Iran, it's strategic goal is not necessarily the destruction of Israel.

Their goal rather, some are projecting, is to potentially take over the oil-producing states like Saudi Arabia, Iraq and other Persian Gulf states.

Some say the Iranian campaign to become a nuclear power is moving forward so as to exploit the political weakness of US President Barak Obama's administration, who has tried to avoid a conflict with Iran, seeking a diplomatic solution instead.

Add to this that President Obama has lost credibility in the region due to the conflict in Syria – and the National Security Agency's alleged eaves-dropping on world leaders, and there could be a case for Iran trying to push it's program to see how far it can get.

Interestingly, this scenario has created an opportunity from Israel's point-of-view.

Countries in the region, for various reasons, are threatened about a nuclear Iran.

Many are US allies.

There are a few rifts being revealed between the US and these allies – such as the Saudi's refusing the UN Security Council Seat in protest partly over US policy in Syria.

Some Middle East common interests are developing – particularly among those potentially threatened by Iran – including Israel.

In Diplomatic circles, away from cameras and behind closed doors, dialogue is taking place between Israel, who may have both the guts and hardware to stop Iran if America doesn't, and Islamic states, because of the shared threat of a nuclear Iran and what that can mean here in the Middle East.
