The nuclear deal is now a reality and one that should be dealt with as a fait accompli. Even before getting into the details of the nuclear deal between Iran and the United States, we should be aware that significant historical change is looming on the horizon. The question remains: which direction will it take Iran and take the Arab world to?
Understanding and analyzing this deal will take me time and a few articles, because it tackles multiple angles and they are difficult to summarize. This includes the deal’s consequences on Iran itself and countries in the region, such as Bahrain, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Yemen, and its stability with regional powers like Saudi Arabia and Egypt. This deal might also ignite a larger armament race, most probably nuclear. We should measure its impact on the Arab relations with the West and whether it will further fuel the current sectarian conflicts.
We know we are facing dramatic change; the door behind which Iran was imprisoned by the world, is about to open. However, we cannot be certain which direction the free Iran will now take, especially that we had complained about this when Iran was still controlled.
