So, now, Hosni Mubarak is giving in to the Muslim Brotherhood’s designated pimp, Barack Hussein Obama, and will leave Egypt soon, perhaps tonight. Get ready for chaos all over–not just on the streets of Cairo, but at the Israel-Egypt and Gaza-Egypt borders. Omar Suleiman will not be able to stop it for long, especially because he’s a Mubarak guy and worked closely with Israel. But, now, the emergent, most serious thing is what will now happen at Egypt’s eastern borders.
@ Sinai: Israel-Egypt Border Near Chalutzah Not Ready for Flood
It is an impending disaster, as Egyptian soldiers patrolling both borders will abandon their posts, with Mubarak out of power and Israel will have to send more soldiers it needs elsewhere to both of those areas. And in Gaza, it won’t even be able to do so because, as you know, Israel gave Gaza away to HAMAS. A flood of Egyptians will try to get into Israel, for various reasons, most of them bad. For the Sinai giveaway, we can squarely put the blame on Jimmy Carter. The Gaza giveaway is the work of George W. Bush and Condi Clueless, who insisted Israel get out and allow “democratic elections,” then were shocked! when HAMAS was elected.
Not only will there be a flood of Egyptians trying to emigrate from Egypt to Israel to avoid the extremist Muslim rule, but there will be a good number of other Egyptians, who are Islamic terrorists, in their midst. B’Hatzlachah [Good luck] with that, Israel. Although it will be a great PR story–the Jewish State as the haven for Christians and secular Muslims who hated Israel, but don’t want the glorious life governed by sharia in a Muslim Brotherhood caliphate–as we all know, the mainstream media refuses to cover such great Israeli stories, because it’s an aberration from their required mission of making Israel look bad and Muslims of the greatest extremes into heroes.
When Menachem Begin gave Anwar Sadat and Egypt the oil-rich Sinai, my late father and many others opposed to this pointed out that in Egypt, it’s only a matter of time until Sadat is gone and extremists take over. My dad quoted Mubarak, who said, “We are not bound by the Camp David Peace Accords, and we can violate and abrogate it whenever we want.” He didn’t do that, though in minor ways he did, refusing, for example, Israel’s entry in the International Book Fair in Cairo. But the next guy or sheikh in charge will carry out Mubarak’s words. Now we know the peace shelf-life in land-for-Muslim-paper: roughly 32.5 years. Was it worth it? Not really.
And had Israel kept the Sinai (even more so had it kept Gaza), it would have maintained strategic, defensible borders against Ikhwanistan (“Ikhwan” is Arabic for “brotherhood”). But since Israel made this strategic error in exchange for a brief 32.5 years, here’s a preview of the future, along that border:
Israelis are bracing for a more adversarial regime in Egypt, one they expect could lead their country to expand its army, fortify the two countries’ desert frontier and possibly re-invade the Palestinian-ruled Gaza Strip. . . .
“It will become more difficult for Israel to control events and their outcomes” over the coming year, Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel, chief of planning for the Israeli armed forces’ general staff, told a security conference in Israel this week. . . .
Seeking to shore up Israel’s security, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has permitted the temporary deployment of 800 Egyptian troops into the Sinai, a sparsely populated peninsula demilitarized under the peace treaty. The aim is to prevent smuggling of weapons to Gaza, the neighboring Palestinian enclave ruled by Hamas.
Mr. Netanyahu also ordered the army to speed construction of a 13-foot-tall, radar-monitored fence it began putting up in November to plug 124 miles of desert frontier with the Sinai, a border now easily infiltrated by nomadic Bedouin smugglers of drugs and migrant workers.
“Everything is porous,” said Menachem Zafrir, a 54-year-old resident of the Nitzanei Sinai border outpost, where backyards look into Egypt.
“Until now it’s just Sudanese [migrants], but it could be militants,” he said, gesturing to the thin deployment of Egyptian guards on the other side of a border now marked by a chest-high cordon of sagging barbed wire. “Today the Egyptian army patrols over there. But if there is a mess, they will flee.”
As their elders learned of a Bedouin attack last Friday on Egyptian positions just 30 miles away, children at Nitzanei Sinai played capture the flag outside the grocery store.
“It’s bizarre that this is the quietest place in the country despite the fact that it’s a border,” said Robert Fischer, a Nitzanei Sinai resident who owns a transport company. If an unfriendly regime comes to power in Egypt, “they will need to evacuate us.” . . .
“It’s impossible to make peace with a single man,” Mr. ElBaradei told German news magazine Der Spiegel last week. “At the moment, [the Israelis] have a peace treaty with Mubarak, but not one with the Egyptian people.” . . .
While Israelis rushed to take advantage of tourism, trade and investment opportunities opened by the treaty, few Egyptians did so.
Mubarak is partly to blame, but he had to give in to these cretins a little to keep them under his thumb. The outcome would be no different today, had there been “dialogue” as described below. After all, this is Islam. Hundreds of thousands of dumbass Israelis spent their money as tourists in Egypt, helping keep its economy afloat, and look at what it got them.
Mr. Mubarak, who had taken over after Mr. Sadat’s 1981 assassination, supported the treaty, but Israelis say his government has done little to encourage contact between the two peoples and has allowed Egyptian media to demonize the Jewish state.
Largely because the Israeli-Palestinian conflict festers, Egyptian businesses, labor unions and civic organizations with ties to the wider Arab world have shunned Israel, even as hotels welcome Israeli visitors. . . .
More than 200,000 Israelis visit Egypt each year, drawn by Nile cruises, ancient monuments and the Sinai’s pristine Red Sea beaches.
Like I said, none of that made a difference in the way the majority of Egypt’s Muslims AND Christian Copts see and treat Jews. And it’s about to come to an end.
Thirty-two-and-a-half years. It’s been real.
Several former military and intelligence officials are arguing publicly that Israel must be prepared to reoccupy Gaza, or at least a wide swath of the enclave along its eight-mile border with Egypt. Other experts counsel caution, warning that such an operation would plunge Israel into years of fighting.
More proof Israel should never have pulled out of Gaza . . . or the Sinai.
Land for peace and land in the name of “democratic elections” never works. THEY’RE. MUSLIMS.
