Iran snubbed UAE for joining the US

Iran did not wait long to retaliate against the UAE for joining the US air drill in the Persian Gulf. Ahmadinejad simply visited one of the Tunbs Islands.

Iran took the three islands from the UAE forty years ago. Recently, British archives revealed correspondence between the UAE sheikh and the British consul in Iran, in which the UAE requested that Iran take the islands by force rather than allow the Arabs to surrender them voluntarily. Submitting to overwhelming force is acceptable in the Arab mentality.

Ahmadinejad’s démarche was very rude, and the UAE temporarily recalled its ambassador from Tehran. But the Iranian point was certainly well taken.
