    That Turkey went to hell, is clear to me. That Egypt is dead set to go there as well, is still doubtful, as long as the US gives the humongous economic aid of 3 billion a year to Egypt. Will the junta there -or any regime that emerges later- be willing to throw that aid into the burning pires of the rubble at the gate of Israel's embassy? It seems to me that Egypt itself is divided. It is pulled by Iran and Turkey to join the Islamist populism and hate band-wagon leading towards hell, (nobody was at reach last night), and yet it seems to want to signal to the USA that it still wants the aid, with its condition of maintaining peace with Israel. In terms of intent, Obama is weaker than Turkey, Iran, and the mob-rule in Egypt's chaos. The Palestinian UN bid seems to only add gasoline to the fire of instability and chaos. By the way, no matter what happens next, it seems Syria and Lebanon won't be Israel's friends anytime soon. Jordan is silent, trying itself to surf the storm as best as it can. I wish we could fast forward to the day when both Obama and Netanyahu leave office.
