    To prop up his regime. He told them, only I can keep you safe from evil and threatening Israel. I spent two months studying Arabic in Cairo and I met plenty of Egyptians who wanted to visit and see Israel for themselves, but Mubarak and his secret police prevented or intimidated them from going.

Let's offer the aid which will doubtless be needed once the flames die down. Let's show that we are a good neighbor before the political winds start to blow.
