” …but no good for the civilized world can come from the deposition of Hosni Mubarak.” Me, in this blog, 2011.01.30
Told you so…and no; I don’t hate to say it. I believe that all history is cyclic, not linear or chaotic.
“Egypt is not going toward democracy but toward Islamicization,” said Eli Shaked, a former Israeli ambassador to Cairo who reflected the government’s view. “It is the same in Turkey and in Gaza. It is just like what happened in Iran in 1979.”
“The growing hostility from Egypt could require a radical rethinking of Israel’s defense doctrine which, for the past three decades, counted on peace on its southern border. As chaos in the Sinai has increased and anti-Israel sentiment in Egypt has grown, military strategists here are examining how to beef up protection of the south, including by the building of an anti-infiltration wall in the Sinai.”
Que Sera, Sera (But I TOLD you so.)
