Nasser founded the secular and socialist inspired “United Arab Republic” (Egypt,Syria and Libya). Morsi hopes to form a “United Islamic Republic” patterned on Iran. The Islamacists will emerge from the Arab Spring as the regions predominant political force. Very soon there will be plebiscites in each of those countries endorsing such a union. It will of course do nothing to address the poverty and backwardness of the region. However it may give the Arabs renewed confidence to war with Israel.

Sounds a bit like a plot point from this book.
