Author examines history between US, Middle East

by David Hardaker from Correspondents Report

DAVID HARDAKER: We hear a lot of talk now about the United States wanting to put together a coalition of the moderate Arab regimes against radical Islam, for want of a better term. In the context of history, is this an approach that is going to work?

MICHAEL OREN: I wouldn't think so. First of all some of the so-called moderate Arab regimes, the Saudi regime are actively supporting Wahhabi extreme Islam. The coalition is really against Iran and I think it's going to take a lot more than the Saudis and other Gulf Emirates to hold off the Iranians.
