|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.
