Amidst the political classification in the region and talk of the moderate and extremist states, other states seem to have been overlooked and they are the states that deserve to be called the 'fearful Arab' states. Clearly, they have come to the forefront of the events in Lebanon once again and those who attended the exceptional summit in Cairo are aware of that.
The fearful Arab states are making it difficult for the moderate states in the region to carry out their tasks, and they also send wrong messages to all parties. Such states are the ones affirming, without conviction, that the Lebanese crisis is an internal matter and they are calling against confrontation with Iran.
The fearful Arab states are unaware of the fact that the conflict with Iran will prevail and that it will not just end in Beirut. Iran is an actual occupier in Iraq and it also occupies three islands that belong to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and moreover supports Hamas and drives it towards igniting a crisis with Egypt to preoccupy it.
The Iranians are stirring up trouble for the Yemenis and threatening the Kuwaitis and Bahrainis. And all of this is achieved through funding, some agents and the exploitation of some foreign organizations whilst facilitating their missions and this also applies to Al-Qaeda.
Thus the question is: How long will these Arab states continue to be afraid, after Beirut fell into the hands of the Iranians and Fouad Siniora's government continues to be held under siege in much the same way as the legislative Lebanese leadership? Moreover, the Palestinian cause is no longer under Arab control after Hamas has become a puppet in the hands of the Iranians and Syrians.

*Confrontation is the only option that the Arabs have with Iran and the lesser degree of confrontation is to hold steadfast onto political positions without retreating or lagging behind through inaction. What they fear today will happen tomorrow since Iran is expanding in all the Arab states; it is critical for the Arabs to counteract the collapse of the Arab nation and prevent it from being ripped apart internally.
Confrontation is the only option that the Arabs have with Iran
Never gonna happen. If they've been unable to mobilize themselves successfully against the Zionist Entity it sure ain't gonna happen against Iran.
Jimmy Carter delivered Iran to the islamists...
Obama will finish the job, delivering the entire middle east to Iran.
Iran is interfering in Arab affairs without a right and is consequently a threat to our national security and this is the message. This is why the Saudi-Egyptian action to confront the Iranian expansion must prevail and Tehran's attempts to seize control of the Arab world must come to grinding halt.
Meh, the Arabs will all start worshipping Ali. By next year, they’ll be cutting themselves on Ashura. Then the Twelfth Imam will come, and after him, Isa will come and kill all the Christians.
