From a Muslim perspective, a state of cold war with Israel and the consequent illusion of Islamic unity is much preferable to communal carnage among Sunni, Shia, Kurd, and Ahmadiya, as well as the conflict between Arabs and Iranians and between those who call themselves true Muslims and the others who are presumably false Muslims. All of these true hatreds are sublimated by the perception of a common enemy. The Muslim world is held together by a thin string called Israel. Toda raba.
