The fading power of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's government leaves Israel in a state of strategic distress. Without Mubarak, Israel is left with almost no friends in the Middle East; last year, Israel saw its alliance with Turkey collapse.

I don’t think Egypt is really Israel’s friend.
Is it coincidence that this all happened on Obama’s watch? I don’t believe so and further more, it wouldn’t surprise many of us if it comes out that he has been pursuing his anti-Israel policies while “seemingly desiring peace”...
Don’t forget that in The Revelation of John, in the end, Israel is without friends. Things be happening.
Israel never had any friends she could count on, which is a damn shame.
It’s become so evil I would not be surprised if I flew over to Israel to help her defend herself.
This world has gone completely batsh!t.
I would like to know what contact he’s had with the Egyptian opposition.
What would Israel do without Mubarak and Obama on their side?
Not the important question.
The important one is how many and what type of enemies will Israel have when Cairo falls?
Well, correct me if I’m mistaken on these, Egypt is primarily Sunni, so is Hamas, Hezbolah, Muslim brotherhood, and Syria. Iran is primarily Shiite, so is Jordan, Lebanon, Fatah, and majority Iraq.
How many of them will be Israel’s enemy? My guess...all of them...if the the conditions permit them to get away with it. Another important thing to think about, Israel’s borders with enemies. They will become three, one smaller one and two very long ones. Things do not bode well for our dear friend, Israel. Or us.
They are not friends. They are countries who both have a strong interest in avoiding an Israeli-Egyptian war. So perhaps “strategic partners” would be a better term.
You're correct. When the $4 Billion a year stops, we'll all see that. What a horrible time to have PRES__ENT 0bama in charge.
Israel currently stands alone, without any allies. The United States is no longer an ally of Israel. This has Biblical implications.
Later on, in the early 80's, when I was in Amman I met a Palestinian who had served in the Egyptian Army in the Suez. He said the Egyptian troops could see US cargo planes in the distance flying into Israeli airfields just behind the lines dropping off supplies, one after the other in what seemed to be an endless stream of planes.
But now? GW Bush may have been the last unless we elect someone like Palin.
Really. Egypt was a friend? A better description would be non-belligerent.
Obama sat in an anti-semetic and pro Pali church for over 20 years. This is going his way.
The intelligence services of Israel and Jordan have back-channel lines open and during the Bush admin years there was some interaction there—some of it fairly significant.
I don’t know what goes on nowadays.
The Saudis have also cooperated with Israel from time to time on various matters. None of these nations want any of this stuff made public, though. It’s a domestic political no-no for all of them.
Commie leftist scumbag rag. “Shoud I beleive them? Can anyone help here?’ /SARC!
And that young marine was BALLS, DEAD NUTS SPOT ON!
Israel has many friends in the US, Christian and Jew alike.
Tragically, there is no support for Israel in the White House and the pro-Islam State Dept under SOS Clinton. And little support for Israel in the Democrat Party which has veered to the far Left.
Israel currently stands alone, without any allies.
***I dont think Egypt is really Israels friend.***
Not the first time.. Remember when Syria, Egypt and Jordan formed the United Arab Republic against Israel?
Obama met secretly with Moslem Bro last year for extensive talks. Reported today on DRUDGE
A little community organizing on the side?
The Muslims will be licking their chops soon because Israel has no friends in the Middle East. But, Israel does have one friend...God! God is not going to allow Israel to be destroyed! He is going to take the Muslims down before too long! He will allow the nations to gather and threaten Israel but He will perform a miracle and send the nations home with their tails in between their legs!
“Dont forget that in The Revelation of John, in the end, Israel is without friends. Things be happening.”
I bet there is going to be a “all this can end if Israel agrees to Palestinian demands” call from Obama to Bibi.
And the UN will demand Israel fix this.
If I was Bibi, I would just nuke Damascus and Tehran and be done with it. A Patton said: “We are here and we are going to have to fight them eventually, might as well do it now.”
The majority of American Jews including Wall Street and Hollywood types have never had any interest in preserving their historical homeland! History is only relevant to them when publicly while striking down an imaginary antisemitic or non-progressive group or individual. Therefore I believe the American left will also become a more exposed and enjoined enemy of Israel as well.
GOD will bless Israel; fortunately for all.
Isaiah Chapter 19
from verse 18 on could make more sense soon.
Israel has never pleased God when it has sought out allies.
A lot of people are going to die until they realize that they need to turn to God first.
God have mercy on Israel!
That’s a rather good, and frightening, point you make.
Israel will be pushed and pushed until she relents (prophetic) she will then rely on outsiders to protect her. Those outsiders will then turn on Israel to the point where Israel will almost be destroyed. Then guess who happens upon the scene?
Iraq is majority Shi'ite but there are plenty of Sunni Arabs and Kurds.
Nile to Euphrates. Forget Ramallah, Israel will be debating settlements around Amman, Damascus and Alexandria. (Just kidding)
I’m with you! But it may very well turn out we can defend her by fighting her “enemies” right here in the U.S.A.
An alliance between Israel and Syria would be horrible. If it did come to pass, the first casualty will be Lebanon. Syria has wanted to get back in ever since George W Bush helped to kick it out.
Israel has the only friend she needs-
the Lord of all creation.
The rest of us Best get on board and support her as well as we can, because her enemies will end with a quick and terrible demise.
Be of good cheer. This stuff is foretold. Watching it unfold is a surreal experience, but should serve to press you MORE into faith, not scare you away.
“Then guess who happens upon the scene?”
Enlighten me please.
The author Aluf should be renamed haloof. (that’s Arabic for fool)
Other Jews and Israelies are smart. Just shut up and wait for the dust to settle.
Well, if you’ve read The Revelation of John, you’ll soon see that Israel is left alone. She’ll reach out for help and it will be given her. But, when all is peace and safety, those friends will turn on her. When Israel is about to be crushed, Messiah will return. That’s the whole scenario. I suggest you read The Revelation of John in the NIV. It’s in plain English and reads quite easily.
>> Things be happening.<<
And so fast its beginning to make my head spin. I was just reading Isaiah 19 again. Not a coincidence, these things that are happening.
The thing is we can’t be going off half cocked. Paul was looking for Christs return during his lifetime. There have been so many false scenarios the latest of which was Hitler. It’s not until Israel became a state again where Biblical prophecy can be watched, looked at. There’s lots more on the horizon.
Egypt is a Sunni country but with strong Shia leanings. It is the country that gave refuge to the descendants of the Prophet Mohamed in the first century AH and continues to venerate them today. Its venerable Al-Azhar University is one of the few Sunni academic institutions to teach Shia Jaafari jurisprudence alongside the four schools of Sunni jurisprudence. This is of no small import given the historical and symbolic significance of Al-Azhar. In addition, Egypt was the first officially Shia state which, founded in the mid-10th century AH, did more than its predecessors to shape the traditions and values of Egyptian society.
Much of the anger and criticism sparked by President Hosni Mubaraks statements back in 2006 on Arab Shia was the result of them being taken out of context and isinterpreted. Those comments however sparked a division and resentment.
Suggesting that Egypt is only Sunni is not correct.
With friends like this, who needs enemas?
They don’t need any “friends” like Egypt; hell, they don’t need any friends at all because of their nuclear bombs. Thank G-d Israel was smart and got the bomb!! Can you imagine if Israel didn’t have it? All of those islamic animals would’ve overrun the country years ago. Those raging lunatics in the islamic world better remember that ISRAEL can nuke all of their useless real estate and turn it to glass in one second. No more dead Jews at the hands of lunatics! (and I’m a Catholic)
