An unsupported assertion that belies the facts

In a story on US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton's Q and A session in Qatar, where Iran was apparently a hot topic, Reuters correspondent Arshad Mohammed asserts:
While Arab states fear the possibility of Iran getting the bomb, and warn that it could spark a regional arms race, they are also uneasy about the possibility that military action by Israel against Iran could profoundly destabilize the region.
Mohammed offers no evidence to support the latter notion and we wonder why, if Arab states like Egypt are so "uneasy" about Israeli military action, they are providing highly visible free passage to Israeli war ships
