This should be expected as should the Israeli response of taking over the Rafah border crossing just as soon as Egypt begins to loosen restrictions on travel through it. The changes in the Middle East are tending toward a far larger conflict than people realize. Israeli leadership has been -- Israel first, Israel rights, Israel wants should always have top priority, everyone else in the region comes second. Mubarak went along with that philosophy. Free and independent people in Egypt will not. Israeli leadership will make excuses for the inevitable conflicts their policies produce, but excuses don't prevent conflicts -- they ensure them. Ultimately, the tensions created by "our way or else" build to the point of explosion. It is merely a matter of time now before that explosion happens. Peace is dead. It died with the US veto of the Palestinian UN resolution that stated to the world the US will do whatever it can do in its power to give Israel whatever it wants. Well, the consequence of that policy is that war now awaits on the horizon. God have mercy on your souls. This next war is going to be the mother of all wars. There was a time when peace was possible. That time has passed.
