Nuclearising Iran re-unites America & Europe

US president George W. Bush's recent tour to Europe seems to have marked an improving relation with Germany and France which have undergone an evident shift of politico-ideological position since 2005. While this is a positive development for Israel, how Iran's neighbours and fellow member states in the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) such as Saudi Arabia would react or respond is certainly a very interesting issue to be followed closely in the next few months. What impact this development will have on the political sentiment and also threat perception of voters in the US presidential election is no less important as both parties in US are in a feverish mood to champion their respective candidates as the best guardian of national security. Like it or hate it, both John McCain and Barack Obama have already publicly committed to the position of ensuring the existence and also security of Israel although they may differ on some ways and means.
