Lester, you really need to read a newspaper. The Sunni states are 
fighting a proxy war against Iran. That is why they back the al-Nusra 
Front rather than the FSA. Considering what the leader of the Syrian 
National Coalition says about Iran, I am not surprised:

We should identify our own shortcomings and weaknesses that allowed 
Western powers to inject sectarian hatred in our societies in order to 
know why the talk about taking military action against Iran has become 
very normal.

The bitterness in the hearts of Sunnis caused by the alleged 
Iranian-sponsored Shiite invasion of the Arab World is not a sufficient 
reason to be silent in the face of a possible military strike on Iran. 
If we suppose that we have 50% doctrinal differences and 20% juristical 
differences with Iran, we all know that we have 90% doctrinal 
differences with the wicked West.

Iran’s possession of nuclear capabilities poses no threat to any Sunni 
but it will be a formidable deterrent to the evil powers that are 
rushing madly upon the Muslim World.

The aggression against Iran is an upsurge of Western domination to snap 
at the riches of this region and deepen the cultural and social invasion 
of our Muslim World. In all honesty, it is genuinely logical and Islamic 
to refuse any action against Iran and to consider such action an 
aggression against the whole Muslim World.

Our refusal to take military action against Iran is a rejection of 
aggression itself as a mean to implement hidden agendas.
