As tensions with Israel escalate over its policies on the Palestinian front, the United States appears to be growing closer to its longstanding rival Iran.

The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday quoted senior US and Arab officials as saying that Washington and Tehran have “moved into an effective state of détente over the past year.”

The warming ties have the potential to dramatically shift the geopolitical balance in the region, as America’s traditional Sunni Arab allies as well as Israel have always been suspicious of Iran’s intentions.
