This year is turning into a critical one for Israel, which is becoming more isolated in the ME. Turkey is gone and Egypt appears to be on the way.The collapse of Hosni Mubarak’s regime in Egypt is not yet about Israel but soon will be, depending on his successor.

If the Muslim Brotherhood grabs the reins in the massive Arab country, Israel will face an enemy with one of the largest and strongest militaries around, built on some of the most advanced American-made platforms.
The impact on Israel will be immediate – the IDF will need to undergo major structural changes, new units will need to be created and forces in the South will likely need to be beefed up. Since the Yom Kippur War in 1973, the IDF has not had to worry about two fronts at once. Until now.The appointment of Intelligence Minister Omar Suleiman as the vice president in Egypt is a reassuring sign for Israel.

Just for the record, the current Egyptian regime doesn't like Israel either. They just pretend to tolerate them for our money (I'm sure).

We give Israel over a billion dollars for aid every year. It's been argued that they pay that money back. The point is we've equipped Israel enough so they can fight their own wars. All we have to do is not forbid them from defending themselves.

I don't know. Is anyone disposed to thinking it might have been a rilly rilly bad idea to allow a freaking UN muslim to be head of the IAEA??
