Reading a little between the lines in this article, it is clear Israel is nervous about the current events in Egypt. And if they are nervous, I am nervous. As the bastion of democracy in the Middle East, Israel has been in a precarious position since nationhood in 1947. They know the region and they know what they are up against if the situation in Egypt goes the wrong way. Clearly, this is the Obama Administration’s first real international crisis, the end result of which could either be continued (albeit tenuous) peace or war.
