As with Hezbollah, and Iran.....the Ikwan MB will be busy in Palestinian affairs in a significantly different way than Mubarak obviously, once it usurps power in Egypt, and destroys the Egyptian establishment and military.
The "Bring it on" crowd in Israel who envisage Eretz Israel will perversely welcome this development in Egypt, as it gives them a casus belli to attack and occupy Sinai once again. We must never forget that some Israeli extremists Zealot Iscariot's were never happy about making peace with Egypt in 1979, and played a significant role in Carter's down fall in the 1980 Presidential elections, AND terrorism in Egypt targeting especially the tourism industry, throughout the 1990's.
Somehow in this pent up mess of "popular" rent a crowds created by the Americans and their agents, with their shadowy NGO's, the moderates within the Egyptian military must consolidate their position in power, UNITE.....and avoid a transition government which guarantees an eventual Ikwan MB takeover.
(Ikwan) Muslim Brotherhood seeks review of treaty with IsraelPeter Goodspeed, National Post
The Egyptian army chose the Berlin Wall solution rather than the example of Beijing's Tiananmen Square to end three weeks of crisis and that is going to have huge ramifications throughout the Middle East.
A relatively peaceful political transformation, that owed absolutely nothing to either terrorism or repression, has transformed the Arab world overnight and toppled one of the Middle East's most enduring dictatorships.
Hosni Mubarak's departure marked the end of an era and it removes one of the United States' most trusted allies in fighting terrorism and trying to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
New linkages and a new sense of trust will have to be forged with whoever assumes Egypt's leadership. But perhaps more importantly, U.S. support for the Egyptian demonstrators may challenge the legitimacy of other, previously untouchable, U.S. allies in the region like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates.
For now, while the drama in Cairo reverberates through the region, it is Israel that feels threatened by the prospect of a new, popular government in Egypt.
While Mr. Mubarak maintained a cold peace with Israel, he respected Egypt's peace agreement and helped isolate the Gaza Strip. Those certainties may now be challenged.
"A casualty of the democratic epoch would be the Arab-Israeli peace process and the integration of Israel into the regional order," said Ray Takeyh of the Council on Foreign Relations. "
Arab public opinion continues to reject Israel as an agent of an alien and pernicious ideology that usurped Arab lands."
Israel said it hoped Mr. Mubarak's resignation would bring no change to its peaceful relations with Cairo.
"It's too early to foresee how [the resignation] will affect things," a senior Israeli official said.
"We hope that the change to democracy in Egypt will happen without violence and that the peace accord will remain," he said.
There was no immediate comment from Israeli leaders at the start of the Jewish sabbath.
And White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said on Friday it was important that the next government of Egypt recognized the country's peace accord signed with the government of Israel.
For now, the Muslim Brotherhood, Israel's most vociferous critic in Egypt, says it will respect the peace agreement with Israel.
But Mohamed Morsi, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood's guidance bureau, says the Brotherhood wants the peace treaty to be reviewed by a new parliament.
"It talked about a just and comprehensive peace, and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state," he said. "Where is that peace, and where is that state?"
