They’ll never say it out loud, but the Arab world is pleased with Israel’s attacks on weapons depots in Syria. Usually, it doesn’t even take an Israeli military action to elicit condemnation of Israel by Arab nations. Not this time.
Syria’s brutal repression of freedom is not to anyone’s liking, with the exceptions of the Syrian regime, Russia and Iran. Not that autocratic Arab countries have suddenly nurtured humanitarian sympathies. Rather, this: the stronger Syria is, the stronger Iran is. And Arab countries, even the largest and strongest of them, fear Iran.
