US fanning sedition between Iran, Arab nations: Egyptian daily

Algiers, Aug 16, IRNA – The US 'Arab NATO' plan is aimed at diverting attentions of the Arab countries of the issue of Israel and enmity towards Tel Aviv and encouraging them instead to take a hostile approach towards Iran, wrote an Egyptian paper.

The most widely circulating Egyptian daily Al-Ahram, in a recent article, said that the plan by US President Donald Trump to establish a NATO-like military coalition comprised of Arab countries is solely aimed at countering a certain political enemy of the United States.

Trump now considers Iran to be the biggest US political enemy, so he is attempting to unite Arabs against Tehran, Al-Ahram wrote.

Trump is following to achieve this end by dividing the Muslim Shias and Sunnis, what finally will result in superiority of Israel in the region, giving Washington a free hand to promote its colonial conspiracies.

The Egyptian daily said that by promoting such a plan the United States is going to preoccupy Arabs with an Arab-Iranian conflict and divert their attention of Israel and its goal to expand its hegemony in the region and strike the so-called deal of the century with the Palestinians.
