Intra-Arab alliances, challenges and interests

In the 75 years since the creation of the Arab League, which grew from six members to twenty-two, the Arab countries of North Africa, the Levant and the Persian Gulf areas have never acted as a unified block, except at times against Israel. Now, with Iran and Jihadist groups as their mortal enemies, Israel at peace with Egypt and Jordan as well as normalizing its relations with the United Arab Emirates, the conflicting interests of the various Arab countries are expressed in their alliances with each other and with non-Arab regional and global actors.
