Dear Editor:

Your article, “Saudi Arabia’s Efforts To Isolate Iran Face Resistance” (1/19), highlighted Saudi Arabia’s attempt to create an alliance of Sunni Arab states to oppose Iran.

Saudi Arabia and its allies “fear that the lifting of economic sanctions on Iran will allow it more room to meddle in Arab affairs.”  They are also worried that “Washington is abandoning long-standing ties with the Gulf States.”  Both concerns are quite rational, as the U.S. administration has just authorized the release of over $100 billion in sanctions relief to Iran, which itself is the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world today.  Iran manages its terror operations throughout the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America, as bases to penetrate the U.S. and Europe.

The reaction of Saudi Arabia and its allies is quite predictable and rational.

Too bad for the western world that our US and European governments are not as rational!
