    That's what netanyahu wants everyone to think and that is what the right wing and zionist pundits want us to think. What is happening in Egypt has nothing to do with the situation that brought about the downfall of the Persian tyrant. Iran is Shi'ite, Egypt is not. Iran had its opposition well organised around a religous figure, with a long history of Shi'ite political upheaval. Egypt is a different case of a nation that wants to be heard, represented, recognised, a nation that no longer wants to be treated as a collective child. It is fed up with a dictatorial leader who takes his cues from the US and Israel, while neither does naything to advance the cause of the people. Israel has a choice and the Arab world knows it. Recognition and toleration but in order for that to continue it must end its arrogant policies of expansionism and settlements making a Palestinian state an impossibility. It cannot exist in the region as a neighbour unless it acts like one and goes back to its borders which are recognised and ends the occupation. Egyptians do not want war anymore than Israelis but they want dignity and they want their voice to count. Mubarak was a dictator. Israel is an even bigger dictator and it must become a nation that is willing to live as a neighbour in the neighbourhodd and not a bully always ready to humiliate and mock.
