Egypt, once a granary for the world, can no longer feed her own people without massive US aid. This reflects the dismal effects of both its socialist system and Islam. There is at least some reason for optimism that the Muslim Brotherhood will not be able to fully control Egypt or use it to enhance their strength.

Notably, Morsi and the Brotherhood have recently gotten more push back than could have been expected when he came to power; and although Egypt can help Iran, there is little that Iran can do the help Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Egypt will weaken its own economy in the name of Islam, then continually threaten Israel with words to negotiate increasing aid from the US. Same game as Arafat and Hamas have perfected over 30 years.
