UAE won’t allow U.S. to attack Iran from its bases

So says the president of the UAE, Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The Emirates “refuses to use its territorial lands, air or waters for aggression against any other country, let alone a neighboring Muslim country with which we maintain historic and economic ties,” Sheik Khalifa said in a statement carried on Emirates news agency WAM.
“We have assured the brothers in Iran … that we are not a party in its dispute with the United States, that we will not allow any force to use our territories for military, security and espionage activities against Iran,” Sheik Khalifa said…
Earlier this month, Qatari Foreign Minister Sheik Hamad bin Jassem Al Thani issued a similar message, saying Qatar wouldn’t permit an attack on Iran to be launched from its soil.

Seems like Arabs are coming to their senses, either out of ‘brotherhood’ or fear.
