The Sunni Arab states know the Iranian threat is real and indeed the mini Gulf-states would be the first victims, with a shadow falling darkly over the Persian Gulf well before Iran is at the stage of launching nuclear-tipped missiles at Israel.
This is an issue that unites the Jewish state closely with it's Sunni Arab neighbors. Obama should be promoting a united front against Iran part of his outreach to the Muslim world. Jews and Muslims working together!

'Saudis on Iran: Cut off the head of the snake'
According to a report of the more than 250,000 cables, that appeared on The Guardian’s website, Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah asked the US repeatedly to attack Iran and destroy its nuclear program, and in 2008 the monarchy’s envoy to Washington told US Gen. David Petraeus to “cut off the head of the snake.”
The Guardian noted that the Saudi king was recorded as having “frequently exhorted the US to attack Iran to put an end to its nuclear weapons program,” one cable stated.
And Saudi Arabia was not alone. According to the Guardian report, “officials in Jordan and Bahrain have openly called for Iran’s nuclear program to be stopped by any means, including military.”
