Lebanon: United Sunni Front

‘The spectre of Iran's nuclear ambitions and fear of a so-called “Shia revival” in the region has forced the Saudi Kingdom to reevaluate its stance on Qatar. And in turn, tiny Qatar, home to the site of a major American military base (not to mention the Centcom nerve center of planning strategy for the Iraq war), fears a reprisal attack from a nuclear Iran in case the US strikes. Accordingly, a united Sunni Gulf emerges,’ writes Antoun from Lebanon.
