Following the historic nuclear deal between the US and Iran, Israel is considering new alliance with gulf states to make up of what might be called the ‘recessive US alliance’.
Israeli officials are now openly talking about common interests with Persian Gulf countries, especially in confrontation with Iran which has become a common enemy for both sides. Positions of both countries against Syrian President Bashar Assad are also identical
Such alliance has been recently cemented after Saudi Arabia banned Hezbollah-owned TV satellite station (Al Manar), and designated the anti-Israel, Iran-backed Hezbollah as ‘terrorist organization’.
In a related context, several media outlets have uncovered a series of secret meeting between Saudi and Israeli officials.
