CAIRO—Iran and Egypt's new government signaled Monday they were moving quickly to thaw decades of frosty relations, worrying the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia that the overtures could upset the Mideast's fragile balance of power.

Iran said it appointed an ambassador to Egypt for the first time since the two sides froze diplomatic relations more than three decades ago, the website of the Iranian government's official English-language channel, Press TV, reported late Monday.

Also Monday, officials at Egypt's Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that new foreign minister Nabil Elaraby is considering a visit to the Gaza Strip—an area controlled by Hamas, a militant Palestinian Islamist group backed by Tehran and until now shunned by Cairo.



It appears the CIA backed uprisings are about to backfire on the United States.


American officials said they are concerned that Egypt's apparent determination to re-establish relations with Iran is part of a broader reordering of its foreign policy. They worry that such a turn could empower Iran and its regional clients Hamas in the Gaza Strip and Hezbollah in Lebanon, both of which are labeled terrorist groups by the U.S.

Egypt's outreach has also extended to Syria, a close ally of Iran. In early March, Egypt's new intelligence chief, Murad Muwafi, chose Syria for his first foreign trip. It remains unclear what was discussed at the meeting, previously reported by The Wall Street Journal.



Israel had better take note that there is about to be some new players in the Middle East game and the balance of power is shifting.

Mine too, not so much the Biblical aspect, but just the fact that Israel is about to be surrounded by some very powerful players. I definitely look for them to make a preemptive strike either against Iran, Egypt, or both, and definitely can see them ratcheting up their attacks on the Palestinians.

It does appear that they are anxious to get something started. Maybe they have fallen behind on their timeline. Regardless, this whole situation over there has long been a tinderbox just waiting for a match.
