Mubarak is bad, but all the other options are worse? Israel welcomes demoracy in Egypt, but fears the islamists, since that could make things at our southern border much more difficult. The move by Jerusalem is not ideological, but pragmatic and about security. If a new regime in in Egypt changes the order at the border, that means that we have use more of our resources in the south, which leaves us more vulnerable in the north. Of course, Israel is strong and will crush any invader, so Israel will prevail, but terrorists could cause great damage - many could be killed and our economy could be severely hurt. So - let Mubarak lead the transition to democracy in Egypt? Is that a reasonable option?
