It’s a sly and devious approach to promoting Middle East arms proliferation and saber rattling against Iran: the Obama administration (unlike the Bush administration which refused to do so) has already supplied Israel with the bunker buster bombs which they would need to (try to) take out Iran’s nuclear facilities.
But this makes us look like Israel’s weapons pimp.
So what better way to defuse that claim than by arming an Arab country that hates Iran almost as much as Israel, with the same weapons?
Now, if only Israel can persuade UAE to launch a joint attack on Iran you’d have an Israeli-Arab Coalition of the Willing, even if it’s only two.
