The deal with Iran has been signed and is now an undeniable reality, yet doubt lingers about its effects and repercussions for the situation in the Middle East. Will its critics be proven correct, and will the situation mutate into one much more dangerous than that prior to July 14, 2015? The crisis is growing deeper, and the fires of war rage stronger in Syria, Iraq and Yemen. The dispute is intensifying between Shiites and Sunnis, as well as supporters and detractors of Iran, from Gaza to Beirut, Aleppo and Fallujah.
Skeptics such as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Prince Turki al-Faisal fear that Iran’s frozen funds to be released pursuant to the Vienna agreement will be used to bolster the capabilities of the Quds Force, the Shiite Popular Mobilization Units and Hezbollah, dreading that Iran will up the pace of exporting its revolution.
