Persian Gulf states look to Israel to confront Iran

And if Iran does succeed in building an atomic bomb, Kuwait and neighboring countries will look to Israel to provide a nuclear umbrella to protect them from Iranian aggression, said Sami Alfaraj, a senior advisor to Kuwait's prime minister.

Still, Alfaraj said Kuwait and much of the rest of the Arab world would prefer for Israel to exercise the military option and prevent the Iranian regime from realizing its nuclear ambitions.
