First, the pan-Arab unions are a joke. Hell, they couldn't even sustain the embargo in the 70s.
Historically, the Arabs have never
been able to stick together, even in the face of a common enemy...even during Saladin's time.
The Sunnis hate the Shi'ites, the Shi'ites hate EVERYBODY (they are the losers of the Muslim world), and BOTH groups hate their own members, based on region.
Hell, having them try to restore the caliphate is the best thing that could ever happen, from our point of view. Everyone capable of doing the job would be assassinated by rival factions, until they were left with some drooling idiot tugged every direction at once by the remains of said factions.
The resulting chaos could only serve our interests.
