Sorry, I forgot to add my comments. So it looks like Egypt is becoming an example for other groups to initiate change but whether it is for good of the US or not remains to be seen.

This is the story folks should be reading.

http://en.rian.ru/world/20110203/162433368.html

"Egypt's banned Muslim Brotherhood movement has unveiled its plans to scrap a peace treaty with Israel if it comes to power, a deputy leader said in an interview with NHK TV.

Rashad al-Bayoumi said the peace treaty with Israel will be abolished after a provisional government is formed by the movement and other Egypt's opposition parties.

"After President Mubarak steps down and a provisional government is formed, there is a need to dissolve the peace treaty with Israel," al-Bayoumi said........"

Don't look for this to get a lot of play in the US press.

Pete,

I was talking about Yemen. There is a general disdain of Egyptian populace towards Israel but is that the same sentiment amongst common Yemenis? Anyone been to Yemen here and interacted with the population?

It don't matter what the common folks want. The Muslim Brotherhood is starting to flex it's muscles - and they and their sub units are all over.

While events appear to be moving fast right now and everyone has that warm and fuzzy "Democratic" feeling look to the long term - like Hamas, the MB is going to cement itself in power in a number of countries.

In the next war between the Muslim Nations and Israel who do we back? Israel or Egypt?
