    "From now on, it will be hard for Israel to trust an Egyptian government torn apart by internal strife" Egyptian government??? It was a totalitarian regime spanning 3 decades for gods sake. Good for them may the Arabs topple all of their despots. In the long run it will be good for Israel. All people enjoy freedom and and this internal struggle will distract attention from Israel and will turn the populous upon their leaders. Destabilizing at first, but if Israel can seize the day it can mean a true long lasting peace at last, for the Arabs will be busing themselves forming a new democratic government. I know these Arab kings and despots kept stability in the region, but at what price? by subjugating the populous it only served to bottle up more rage towards the government and Israel by proxy. If Israel supports Independence now, Israel can have a huge bargaining chip latter....play your cards smart Israel, and your security will be long-lasting.
