    Israel will be delighted at having the Muslim Brotherhood running Egypt. Has not Israel abandoned the policy of seeking peace whenever possible for one of contempt for any nation which seeks peace? Has not Israel made a habit of humiliating Egypt for carrying out it's obligations under the peace treaty? Does not Israel's right not refused to countenance any nation - such as Egypt - which has tried to promote peace? I can understand why the Israeli right sees only success from war, and disaster if peace would break out. They are dedicated to war, and peace is the most evil thing they can imagine, for it would end their strangle hold upon Israel. But what if they are wrong, and pushing for the most radical islamist governments throughout the region backfires? What happens if a Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt decided to recognize Hamas as Palestine and opened it's border to trade? Who cares, it would be good for war!
