A bad (and predictable) consequence of the Egyptian 'revolution.'
Barry Rubin (who's contributions, BTW, are a great coup for PJM):
"But none of that is new. What is new is a shift in the strategic situation. The recent upheavals in the Arab world have emboldened revolutionary Islamists and Hamas most of all. Its close ally, the Muslim Brotherhood, can operate freely in Egypt. There is much support for Islamism in the Egyptian army. And even the 'moderate' presidential candidate Muhammad ElBaradei said that Egypt would go to war if Israel attacked the Gaza Strip."
