    "The Americans and the Europeans are being pulled along by public opinion and aren't considering their genuine interests" - what he meant was that these countries aren't considering Israeli interests. While everyone is washing hands from Mubarak, Israel jumps in head on. It would have been much better if everyone in Israel's administration remained silent as Netanyahu ordered. Now, on top of everything else, Israel has gained reputation as a supporter of dictatorships. I can understand that Israel has vested interest in keeping Mubarak in power with the peace being conditioned by him remaining in power. But guess what? This will only spur on Egyptians to demand Mubarak be replaced, as this will reinforce the view many Egyptians share: that Mubarak is in fact a servant of Israeli interests. And please no more talk of Iranians suffering under dictatorship. Israeli officials care nothing for them. Egypt is the living proof of that fact. Israelis should really sack their government, because it seems to be the worst enemy of Israel. At least you have the luxury to do it without riots and revolution.
