Israel Concerned as U.S. Provides Arms to Gulf States to Deter Iran


moshe yaalonIsraeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon voiced concern that the U.S. supply of advanced arms to Arab Gulf states to deter Iran could eventually challenge Israel’s regional military supremacy.

“Even if there are not now any hostile designs [among the Arab Gulf states] against us, as we know, in the Middle East intentions are liable to change,” Ya’alon said. “There is enormous importance to preserving what is called the State of Israel’s ‘qualitative edge’ in the face of this regional arms race.”
