scares me too..
It of course is no coincidence that once the Muslim Brotherhood came into power in Egypt, that the MB created Hamas would all of a sudden start
launching rockets at Israeli cities with increased frequency.
They're trying to bait Israel into a wider conflagration, to the point where Egypt could "justify" intervening.
Poor Israel. It just never ends for them. It really is difficult to understand how a society as productive to the world as Israel, can be so amidst
such a tense and anxious environment.
Another important factor which probably excites the Egyptians is the fact that Egypts military - which has been buoyed by American aid - is no longer
soviet, but American. Unlike in '67 and '73, the Egyptians are on 'equal terms', in terms of military equipment, as the Israelis. This no doubt is
a reason why the Egyptians are anxious to instigate conflict with Israel.
It just amazes me that Israel could be seen as the culprit. Egypt, Hamas, are ideologically aligned. So why is it so difficult to people to understand
that Egypt and Hamas would have a definite interest in engineering this situation as a pretext for Egyptian interference? Or at least, an attempt to
bait Israel into a situation in which interference could happen?
This is how politics work. We in the west support Israel because Israel is the only liberal democracy in the middle east. Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon etc,
they are by no means 'liberal', although people like to fancy they are 'democracies' because they voted into power a totalitarian Islamist regime.
Again, this is the 'double think' of politics, where words like democracy, liberty, freedom, take on entirely new meanings often the exact opposite
of what they actually mean.
