Egypt Becomes An Islamic State

This man has a reason to be smiling...he just outflanked the entire military brass of Egypt, becoming a more powerful dictator than Mubarek

Egyptian fiasco -Caroline Glick

Egypt is now an Islamic state.

Its leaders drink from the same well as al Qaida, Hamas and all the rest.
Egypt, with its US armed military has reemerged after 30 years as the greatest military threat that Israel has ever faced.


Global Jihadi Networks in Sinai -Lt. Col. Jonathan D. Halevi 

Egypt's supreme interest is to alter the terms of the Camp David agreement and enable full Egyptian sovereignty over all of Sinai, including in the military domain. In the government's view, terror activity from the Egyptian border that does not stamp Egypt as directly responsible, helps exert pressure in Sinai, compelling Israel to agree to a permanent military deployment in the territory and making the demand for a change in the agreement an Israeli interest without Egypt paying any political price for it.

This from Israel Today.."Palestinian terrorists operating out of the Gaza Strip fired three missiles at the southern Israel town of Sderot on Sunday morning...
...Security officials commented to Israeli media that they were surprised by the accuracy of Sunday's attacks. The rockets fired from Gaza are usually crude or lacking in sophisticated guidance systems, and must be aimed manually. Either Gaza-based terrorists are getting better at manually aiming their rockets, or have come into possession of better guidance systems. Either way, it doesn't bode well for the residents of southern Israel." I don't think that practice makes perfect and Hamas are training their people better.
From where, I wonder, are these 'sophisticated guidance systems' finding their way into deployment? The obvious answer would be through the Sinai corridor where in the light of the change of government, blind eyes are turned, perhaps.

It's unpleasant to witness how, once tame borders are becoming hostile borders...the calmest border is now Israel's Western border [The Mediterranean].

Luckily, Israel's military prowess is second to none...their lives depend on it!
