Iran nuclear dealArab countries and Israel are working together because they fear a nuclear-capable Iran, says a U.S.-born Israeli author and terrorism expert.

That growing relationship was hard to keep secret recently when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made an unannounced visit to Oman, and there have been other overtures to the United Arab Emirates.

David Rubin, the former mayor of the Israeli city of Shiloh, says Iran will eventually reach nuclear capability, which he calls the "breaking point" for its enemy Israel and Iran's other enemies, too.

"And Israel can't allow that to happen," Rubin tells OneNewsNow.

"This will greatly reduce the duration of the attack and therefore preventing the need to refuel along the way," Rubin says of Saudi Arabia's cooperation.

The unlikely allies in the region, he adds, realize that ideology is only so important.

"But when it comes to personal and national interests," he says, "that Israel is a better bet than a country like Iran."
