Arab states are high-risk allies

The Arab states in the coalition against the Islamic State pose a threat in the medium term, Middle East expert Rami Khouri warns in the left-liberal daily El País: "The biggest weakness in Obama's coalition is its Arab members, all of whom are autocratic and paternalistic states that share several embarrassing traits: they are reluctant to use their formidable military arsenals in the fight against ISIS, either from political fear or technical weaknesses; they face strong problems with their own public opinions at home that are very dubious about partnering with the American military; their own mistreatment of some of their prisoners in their jails incubated the birth of Al-Qaeda in the 1980s."
