The Abraham Accords are founded on the common roots and heritage of Muslims, Jews and Christians. Christian America is that third indispensable partner that will make a a MENA defense alliance between Jewish Israel and Muslim Arab nations successful. It is doubtful in the extreme as to whether this will work without America’s full and active participation. Arab nations are notorious for Asabiyyah and mutual suspicions. Most of them hardly trade with each other let alone have security cooperation. It is true that a MENA defense alliance would not work without Israel but America too is very much needed.
