Egypt revolution puts Israel at risk

The collapse of the Mubarak regime will have dire consequences on the future of the Middle East and the State of Israel. The warning signs are there now, and a domino-style collapse of moderate Arab regimes could lead Israel to war, just like it did in1948.

Hosni Mubarak's resignation from power in Egypt and the growing turmoil in nearby Jordan are ominous and bad signs for Israel.

The relations between Egypt and rest of civilized world will be determined by the army of Egypt under pressure by the Islamic Brotherhood both in and out of Egypt. Historically, the Islamic Brotherhood traces it's existence to the Mahdi's army, in Khartoum, Sudan. It was responsible for the wiping out of the British forces, under mercenary general Charles "China" Gordon. Field Marshal Kitchener had to lead a punitive expedition to eradicate the religious zealot Mahdi's forces.

The reality is that history is repeating itself, and the lack of maturity and experience by President Obama puts American interests at risk. He has sold out Egypt and will sell out Israel next. Hopefully, Israel will survive the seriously misguided Obama administration.

Religious extremism currently seen with Iran, Hamas and the Islamic Brotherhood is disregarded by President Obama as his administration is unable to recognize and hold responsible the countries that coddle religious crazies.

Israel will face a regional if not greater war, and thus Israel could be in great danger. President Obama's shift to effectively support the Islamic Brotherhood Instead of Hosni Mubarak was once again the wrong decision and will have dire consequences in the near future.
