Barry Rubin reports on Arab - especially Egyptian - reactions to Thursday's terror attacks and their aftermath.

At one point, either confused or after the terrorists hid among a group of Egyptian soldiers dressed the same way, Israeli soldiers fired and reportedly killed three real Egyptian soldiers. Israel has apologized in line with international norms.

Amr Moussa, the man most likely to be Egypt’s next president and known for his hatred of Israel and strong dislike of the United States (a radical nationalist who opposes Islamism but might make a deal with the Brotherhood to get into power and to govern thereafter) gives a foretaste of his demagagic tendencies if elected.

Egypt has never once in it’s entire 3,000 year history has never been even close to a real democracy, much less a Republic. Even thinking they’ll become one is the worst sort of foolishness.

The Muslim Brotherhood will likely be in control of most of them. likely worse than the leaders that were forced out. Oh wait, the Obama administration have connections to the Muslim Brotherhood. Pardon me if I am am suspicious of Obama sticking his nose into the business of other countries. Everything he touches goes to crap.

The radical idea for Egypt is post-Islamicism. People there will tell you that. They were talking about it when I lived there 12 years ago. What we are seeing now is the final death grip of islamicism. The real revolution will follow, just like was attempted already in Iran, but the kenyan did not support the forces of freedom there (nor here!).
