Israel and many Sunni Arab countries, from Egypt and Jordan to the Gulf states of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates, all recognize the Iranian regime as their biggest geopolitical threat in the region.

Prior to leaving Israel for the US- sponsored Warsaw Conference - which is set to take place in the Polish capital this week - Netanyahu told reporters that the conference unites Israel with all world countries against Iran, the New York Times reported today.

Around 80 countries are participating, including Israel. For his part, Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah said, "People in the Middle East have suffered a lot because they have stuck to the past".

In a bid to encourage better participation, Pompeo and others sought to broaden what was initially advertised as an Iran-centric meeting to include the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the fight against Daesh (ISIS), and the conflicts in Syria and Yemen.

Israel's shadow diplomacy with other influential regional actors has also markedly improved, of late.

The Israeli prime minister, who has become increasingly open about the IDF's activities in the region, has yet to confirm or deny whether it was a misleading translation, a Freudian slip, a Kinsley gaffe, or something else.

Before broadening the agenda, the U.S. initially told allies the meeting would focus on Iran, a bête noire for national security adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, both of whom have advocated for regime change in Tehran in the past.

Iran has denounced the conference, which began Wednesday, as an American anti-Iran "circus" and Russian Federation said it would not attend.

Despite the large showing, a number of high-profile countries did not send their top representatives amid ongoing tension between the U.S. and Europe over Trump's decision to withdraw from a 2015 nuclear deal with the Iranian government.

"Time and again, this administration had found itself drunk on its own Kool-Aid, isolated from our friends, and belatedly forced to scramble to save face", Price said, adding that not a single country in the European Union endorsed Trump's pullout from the Iran nuclear deal.
