Israel Sees Egypt Scuttling Treaty, Deploying Troops to Sinai
The Grendel Report ^ | 2/4/2011 | The Grendel Report

Posted on 02/04/2011 9:21:21 PM PST by ErnstStavroBlofeld

Israel's intelligence community has assessed that the fall of the regime of President Hosni Mubarak would result in an immediate crisis with the Jewish state.

The most important variable is Egypt's military. Both Mubarak's vice president and the leaders of the new cabinet come from the military, which Mubarak hopes will serve as the last defense against an Islamic takeover.

Israeli government sources said the intelligence community has determined that the fall of the Egyptian regime would result in a Muslim Brotherhood-dominated government that would sever relations with Israel.

The sources said any post-Mubarak regime would try to scuttle or revise the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty signed in 1979.

"The first thing a new regime would do is deploy military troops in Sinai in violation of the treaty," a government source said.

Not a doubt in my mind that Obama isn't counting on the destruction of Israel. He and his buddy Soros both believe Israel is the stumbling block to piece in the Middle East.

Israel better start calling all its many friends in the U.S. and begging them to rise up against Obama because he is pushing the world to Armageddon as fast as he can.

Don't you just wonder... what is going through the minds of all the Liberal Jews in Hollywood who not only make and promote the anti-America films, but who were all so instrumental in putting Obama in the White House? Do they even put two and two together at a time like this?

I have several Jewish acquaintances and I can tell you that many of them are starting to see the writing on the wall. A couple have renounced their Liberalhood, others are stalwart Liberals, but even they are starting to ask, "What is he doing?"

You just have to wonder what Hollywood thinks at a time like this.

One potential scenario is: The Egyptian Military will be sent into Sinai to placate the wounded egos of the Egyptian Nationalists. Which will leave The Muslim Brotherhood unattended to consolidated their power.

Boy, I do remember a similar situation where a country was taken over by some radicals, then marched their troops into a demilitarized zone ... sometime around March 1936 ... similar to what might happen in the Sinai ... hummmm I think I remember how that eventually turned out.

Its rider was named Death, and Hell was following close behind him.

The Egyptian military would collapse the day after the US cut off funding.

I agree but they would probably go either to Russia or Iran.

Why would Obama cut off funding to Egypt if they were attacking Israel?

Time for Israel to scrap the treaties, push the palis into the sea and resettle the west bank and Gaza with Jews. Then get ready for War like the six days war. Then time don’t give up land for peace—it didn’t work—The Islamic Mullahs need to be crushed, humbled and left with so many dead that they will think twice about any future wars. The problem is—in all the wars—they stopped short of total victory. One side must win, one side lose. War is an ugly thing but it must be fought until their is a resolution.

At the end of the article:

“The sources said the United States played a major role in the downfall of the Mubarak regime.

They said Washington, through leaders of Congress, threatened to block all U.S. aid unless Mubarak ceded power to the military.

“The Obama administration has played a crucial role in deposing Mubarak,” Yoram Meital, a former senior intelligence officer and government consultant, said. “Egypt has now entered a transitional stage.””

Not exactly rocket science, but interesting to see what the Israelis think.

I agree. However, israel must wait for someone to break a treaty first. But if Egypt sends troops to Sinai, say hello to Merkavas on Suez and paratroopers at Gidi, Mitla and Abu Rudais.

Any idea what obligations our troops have as part of the MFO in the Sinai as a result of Egyptian incursion into the Sinai?

Thanks for the ping, MM.

The nations listed in Psalm 83 are beginning to take their places.

Liberal, thy name is idiot. Being a liberal is a lot like being a drunk.( I used to be both). It’s all about emotionship, not intellect. Like drunks who never learn from their self-destructive behavior , as soon as they can stand up, brush themselves off, it’s on to the next booze-up. It’s the same with liberals. As soon as they think some self-induced crisis is over, it’s on to the next election cycle and they’re voting liberal again. Let them suffer the stupidity they voted for. It’s a judgment on them.

Given the antisemitic incitement that's been a hallmark of the Mubarak reign, as in all Arab states, this should surprise no one. It's democracy.

Well, if they make war, they will lose the Sinai again, as they did in ‘67, and would have in ‘56 had not the US intervened. This time, we shouldn’t give it back. What? So Hamas can have an overland supply line, and Egypt can develop the oil and gas reserves?

"kill by sword, famine and plague"

"The Daily Mail reports that the plague was found in the body of one of the al Qaeda Biological Weapons of Destruction Thus it seems obvious that al Qaeda is actively working to build biological weapons of destruction. This ominous news brings to mind images of long ago plagues that the world hopes will never be experienced again." http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/5632324/is_al_qaeda_using_black_death_germs.html?cat=5

I do not forsee any American troops near the Siani.We are going have to find some troops because we are spread very thin. That can always change though. I do see maybe U.S. naval and American air power if they ask for it. Keep this important historical point in mind. President Nixon put the armed forces on to DEFCON 3 when the Yom Kippur War broke out.

When this mess began, all the Air Force Bases here in California went on a state of alert. This was not leaked to the public because of causing panic.

The US has had troops in the Sinai for 30 years as part of the Multinational Force and Observers. Of course, it's only a combat battalion and support troops. Now that I've read up on it seems the Egyptians are allowed several divisions in certain parts of the Sinai while the Israelis are allowed a battalion (I bet they're cussing Carter for that one at this point).

I'm guessing they just observe and will bug out should combat between Egypt and Israel occurs.
