You have read the tittle correctly. A popular Egyptian TV hostTawfik Okasha , calls for an Israel-Arab alliance against Iran. Israel by itself can’t attack Iran as the host suggests due to distance and they don’t have the delivery ordinances to pull it off. If Israel could attack Iran, they would have. Although every year around August, a British paper claims Israel will soon strike. However, an Israeli-Arab alliance against Iran could be a different ballgame altogether.
Only Obama could bring Arabs and Israelis together!
Update: ISIS leader Izzat al-Dhouri has been killed north of Tikrit.
Douri served as Saddam’s number two on the Revolutionary Command Council and was the “King of Clubs” card in the US military’s “Deck of 55” most-wanted Iraqis. He is believed to have since played a major role in the rise of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).
Raed al-Jabour, the governor of Iraq’s Salahuddin province, told Al-Arabiya television that Douri has been killed in an area north-east of Tikrit, Saddam’s home city.
The station published a photograph purportedly showing his body.
The Iraqi governor quoted by Al-Arabiya described Douri as the “mastermind of Islamic State in Iraq”, describing his death as a blow to the jihadist group.
Many analysts have pointed out that Douri is the true brains behind ISIS. I am glad this rat has been kileld due to the amount of American blood on his hands, but I worry this will aid Iran’s takeover of Iraq. We will see what impact this has on ISIS in the coming weeks.
