Shalom Michael,

Actually I think that the UAE upping the ante has to do with the gulf states trying to put pressure on the BHO administration to disengage from the Muslim Brotherhood, which is making great strides thanks to Qatari money. They tried it in the UK and it hasnt worked out thus far. The threat of the Ilhwan to them by fomenting an uprising is great and the Ikhwan is insinuating itself everywhere, with the help of Qatar. So that's the first item.

I dont know that I agree about Sunni/Shia hatred for the Jews. I do believe they hate each other more and will stop at nothing. That said, right now the more interesting axis is the Sunni intra-sect splits- whether it;s between AQ and ISIS and other groups or between KSA and Qatar, it will get more infused since they have a lot of funds to spend on their wars.

Submitting....
