    While what happened in Iran might happen in Egypt, Israel should try to pre-empt such a blow, but that is not what Netanyahu has in mind. President Carter criticized the Shah's human rights record, so the regime was reluctant to use force against the demonstrators, until the Shah fell. We have a repeat performance by Obama and Hillary, so it is possible the regime Nasser built will also fall, and it is possible that the fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood will take over. Can Israel do something to improve the future? Yes, of course. Proceed to have a peace agreement with the Palestinians! With the Palestinian problem gone, Egypt has no serious problem with Israel, nor will Iran be too excited about Israel. And given that there is no more Soviet Union that can provide advance weaponry to Egypt, a war with Israel is not likely. So do something useful Mr. Nutty Yahoo, instead of the usual empty talk.
