Not Suprising, Because The Arab Muslims Fear A Caliphate That Is Based In Iran

This condemmnation of Hezbollah should come as no suprise. The Arab Muslims fear that Iran is into it simply because Iran wants to create a caliphate with Tehran at the head. Since Iran is shia based, this will cast the sunnis that are the majority of the Arab Muslims aside. Plus knowing the goal of Iran which is to get its hands on a nuke, and Iran can buy one from North Korea, Iran can end up having a nuke not in years time but instead in hours. It all adds up to why they are standing up to Hezbollah.
