KNOWING YOUR ALLIES:

Israel Quietly Courts Sunni States (RORY JONES, Jan. 14, 2016, WSJ)

Growing tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran have raised hopes in Israel that officials can build closer ties with the Gulf monarchies based on their shared animosity toward Tehran.

Led by Dore Gold, director-general of the foreign ministry, Israel has stepped up efforts to mend and improve ties in the region--all in a bid to counter Iranian influence and the threat of Islamic extremism.

A long-standing hawkish ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Mr. Gold said Israel and Sunni Arab states face a shared threat in Iran.

Not so much Iran as democracy, which is why the Shi'a and America are the common enemy..
