Alongside the permanent  dangers in the Middle East - the barbarism and nuclear threat of the Iranian revolutionary regime, Arab radicalism terrorism and structural instability, there is new hope. For the US, Europe, Israel and responsible Arab regims, a new political and strategic structure offers a coalition that steers the region away from all-out confrontation to wide-range cooperation between those who understand the magnitude of the Iranian threat and are willing to work together to contain it. Israel and most Arabs are already on board, the US is progressively reconsidering its policy in that direction. Europe will do well to join.
