Netanyahu at Davos: Arab 'partners' don't see Israel as enemy, but rather Iran and Muslim Brotherhood

In an interview during the 44th annual meeting of the World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland (January 22-25, 2014), Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu mentioned that the current Arab regimes share the same concerns as Israel regarding Iran’s nuclear program and the spread of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Referring to current Arab governments, Netanyahu said “They don’t see Israel as their enemy. But in many ways – if not allies – as their partners in holding back these two threats.”

“This is a shift. This is a point in time where we could get more Arab support for a reasoned solution between Israel and the Palestinians than we had before, principally because they really want to have a partnership with all the countries in the middle east against these real threats,” Netanyahu added.
