If The Muslim Brotherhood Takes Over in Egypt, IDF Will Face Formidable Enemy

If Brotherhood takes over, IDF will face formidable enemy


The collapse of Hosni Mubarak’s regime in Egypt is not yet about Israel but soon will be, depending on his successor.

If the Muslim Brotherhood grabs the reins in the massive Arab country, Israel will face an enemy with one of the largest and strongest militaries around, built on some of the most advanced American-made platforms.

The impact on Israel will be immediate – the IDF will need to undergo major structural changes, new units will need to be created and forces in the South will likely need to be beefed up. Since the Yom Kippur War in 1973, the IDF has not had to worry about two fronts at once. Until now.

The appointment of Intelligence Minister Omar Suleiman as the vice president in Egypt is a reassuring sign for Israel.

Suleiman has played a key role in Israeli- Egyptian relations over the years and is considered in charge of the “Israeli Dossier[.]” His office has been responsible for coordinating efforts to stop smuggling via tunnels under the Philadelphi Corridor with Gaza and he is considered something of a moderate in comparison to outgoing Defense Minister Mohamed Tantawi.

In a cable published recently by WikiLeaks, Suleiman told the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff in 2009 that Egypt was stopping Iranian money from making its way through the country to Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

A new regime in Egypt could change all of that, and the transfer of Iranian funds to Hamas would be the least of Israel’s concerns.

This year is turning into a critical one for Israel, which is finding itself increasingly isolated within the Middle East. Turkey is gone and Egypt appears to be on the way.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Since Obama is in the White House, they forgot to mention that America is gone as well, at least until 2012.
In the event of a conflict between Egypt and Israel, obama will either remain neutral or will side with Egypt. In any event, he will screw Israel.

The Muslim Brotherhood does not want peace. They will make the Taliban look like pikers in comparison.

So Egypt may be on the way out. We have supplied Egypt for decades with funds and military assistance. It was an effort to buy friendship. You can't buy muslims. They are stuck in their cult. Hell, George Bush even armed and trained Palistinian security forces in Gaza. WTF. We need to get out of the ME, support Israel and let the muslim states broil and wallow in their own self imposed misery.

However, that may no longer be an option now that there is a muslim bomb and more being built. I just don't know what to do. The one thing I absolutely think we should do is stop letting muslims immigrate to the US and keep close tabs on the ones here. Mucking Fuslims!!

The difference between Barry Sotero and G.W. Bush, is never more evident than when we witness reactions like this. GW was all about supporting Democratic forms of Government in the Middle East. Barry cares little about supporting such form of Government in the region, very reflective of his Pro-Muslim, Anti American feelings.

Sotero is so involved with himself and his lust for personal power, that he cannot see the dangers that are here, not only for Israel but for the United States. The Muslim Brotherhood is not in any way to be considered and ally of America.

As I mentioned the other day, this fraud of a President is going to get this Country in a major incident with the Middle East and then will try to negotiate his way out of it. Meanwhile American Citizens will pay the price of his folly.

This is one of the reasons Bill ayers was involved with the Flotilla into Israel. the Muslim brotherhood. They took over turkey and now it looks like Egypt too. It is all against Israel and to bring her down or destroy her. The only problem Iran is Shiite and the muslim bros are Sunni this may not work as well as the muzzies expect. only time will tell.

Israel is just waiting for the wind to be blowing in the right direction before they nuke Iran. Once that is accomplished there is no ay-rab state that will want to mess with her.
