Egypt still couldn't compete with Israel in a military conflict.
I wouldn't be so sure about that statement, were talking about a population of 90 million people, of which 35+ million are fit for Service and over a million active military personal currently serving, just based on numbers alone, Israel would be dwarfed, if Egypt called full on war, and crossed the boarder, Israeli's better start panicking.
Yet undoubtedly, the IDF have more trained and intelligent personnel.
Underestimating your enemy has been the death of many a man and army.
Whats makes you so sure Egypt are not as well trained and intelligent as the IDF.
Egypt also has a large naval force, and without america's full military support, you would be terribly outmanned and outgunned.
That's my educated opinion.

That's what the Muslims want to think.
In the meanwhile, there's plenty of evidence to show that the "Arab Spring" has turned into a plan to spread "political Islam" (as Khamenei and Zawahri call it) throughout the Middle East and create a new Caliphate along the way.
I think the U.S. was duped into thinking it was only helping to spread democracy by supporting some of these Arab Springs, but in the long run we'll see that all we did was help to spread political Islam instead. I think the U.S. has finally figured this out. This is the only reason Syria hasn't been dealt with yet.

Israel lost any credibility it had when it invaded Lebanon a few years ago.
It is no longer the victim but the bully.
Israel has hidden behind US military might for many years, it has the audacity to demand action to prevent Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon whilst having its own.
It is a hypocrite nation which acts in a barbaric way to peoples of the region.
I have no sympathy for that state and will never support them.
I'm not anti semitic, i just think it is a corrupt and offensive nation.

It seems the IDF wants to take away all Hamas's toys, and it appears that they won't stop until that job is complete.

I hope there will one day be peace.
There certainly will be. When you die. Thus anyway you look at it, conflict only works to bring about peace quicker!
