What the US does when Egypt HAS A REAL GOVERNMENT is unknown and I doubt even the US knows what they will do because nobody Egyptians included know how this is going to play out once they have elections. When you don't know how things are going to be in 8 months then how can you make plans. Hamas is not Mubarak. In Egypt nobody was firing rockets at Israel and so it was possible to deal with them and until Hamas renounce violence then the US cannot deal with them. Also if Obama started talking to Hamas certainly at this stage it would cost him alot of jewish votes in 2012. The US certainly cannot talk with Hizbollah. Not only are they a terror group who answer to Iran who kidnap & kill Israeli soldiers and provoke Israel into wars but they have just toppled the legitimate Lebanese government over the Rafik Hariri investigation. I know the left all love to hate Natanyahu even when he is not the problem but in this case it has nothing to do with him. Unless Hamas renounce violence and join Fatah in a unity government there is very little chance Obama would dare talk to Hamas before 2012 and speaking with Hizbollah would send the message we speak to terror groups who topple elected governments over investigations into assassinations they carried out. Its not the terrorists Obama should be outreaching to it should be Israel. He alienated Israel and for the first time in history Israelis consider the president of the United States to be an enemy. If Obama visited Israel today while the diplomatic niceties would be observed in the streets there would be demonstrations people telling Obama to go home and burning effgies of him. Obama have turned Israeli's against the US and its time instead of his obsession with muslim outreach he started trying to repair the damage he has done in relations with Israel.
