Barry Rubin, Editor of Middle East Review of International Affairs writes in Yale Global:-
Egypt’s next government is likely to be radical, though not Islamist. At best, it will stop observing the Egypt-Israel treaty; at worst, it will explicitly abrogate it. Hamas will receive as many arms as it wishes over the border. The sabotage attack on the Egypt-Israel gas pipeline may signal the end of that arrangement. Israelis, tourists or businessmen, cannot visit Egypt safely. Whether or not this is an accurate scenario, Palestinians and other Arabs, especially Islamists, will largely reason like this: Islamism is winning! Egypt has fallen and will be hostile. Lebanon is now ruled by Hezbollah for all practical purposes. Syria is with us. Iran strengthens and will soon have nuclear weapons. Even the Jordanian regime might fall. Israel will be surrounded and once again help will come for the Palestinian revolution, armed and otherwise, from Arab states. The United States is weak and can’t, or perhaps won’t, protect its allies. So who needs diplomacy and why should we compromise?
