while one may agree with most of what is said in the article, the United States must do more to restore some of its credibility. Obama had to do what he did. He couldn't possibly ignore the Egyptian people verdict. His other option was to support Mubarak and that is hardly a sensible option. People in the region know that and are not that naive to assume that US overall policy had changed. The US has to do more to convince the Arabs and Muslims that its heart is now in the right place and the test is the Palestinian problem. America can only be judged on that issue. It may have to face that soon when the Palestinians take their case to the UN. New Egypt will also present Israel with a new challenge. Losing Mubarak will alter the balance of power dramatically to disadvantage of, Israel, the "moderate" Arab camp and the US. Israel will face a stronger rejectionist front which is destined to be beefed up by new recruits , the moderate Arabs lost their main pillar and will have to adapt to the new reality and the US will face extreme difficulties in maintaining support for its policies among the remaining Arab leaders who feel extremely threatened by the wind of change.
