    Hosni Mubarak is 82 and has serious health problems, which makes it highly unlikely that Egypt would have remained an oasis of stability, for much longer. Omar Suleiman is 74, which is also an impediment to long-term stability. And Gamal Mubarak neither has any interest in the position of president, nor does he have any support from the Egyptian military or intelligence services. So Benjamin Netanyahu need not be at all afraid that Israel has lost Egypt as a bulwark against Islamist hostility, it is a certainty, that must be confronted, given that Egypt's Islamists will have control of a formidable force-on-force military, including 300 F16s. Thus, Israel would have to wipe out that capability, prior to the annexation of the Sinai peninsula and south Lebanon, up to the Litani river, before making a pre-emptive strike, on Iran. And not dismissing the possibility that Islamist Turkey, might enjoin, the action.
