Israelis fear post-Mubarak vacuum in Egypt

Philip Jacobson: ‘Orderly transition to democracy’ sounds good to the West, but troubling to Israel

By Philip Jacobson
AST UPDATED 7:29 AM, JANUARY 31, 2011

It is often said, only partly in jest, that Israelis examine every event of world significance through the prism of “will this be good or bad for us?” Well, they hardly need the doom-laden headlines in the Israeli press to tell them the continuing crisis on the streets of Cairo is as bad as it gets.

For the past three decades, the Jewish state’s Middle East strategy has depended on the stable and, if not overly warm, effective working relationship with Egypt, the most important Arab nation of them all.

As a senior Israeli diplomat observes, ever since the signing of the historic peace treaty in 1979, “for the US, Egypt has been the keystone of its Middle East policy, [but] for us it’s the whole arch.” Reflecting the importance of this alliance, Israel’s right-wing prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has met with the Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak more often than any other foreign leader besides Barack Obama.

Apart from key economic factors – Israeli imports almost half of its natural gas from Egypt – this prolonged quiet on the Sinai front has profound military implications.

It is no secret that while the Israeli military periodically stages war games based on what might follow a collapse of the Mubarak regime, that threat has not featured high on the nation’s strategic priorities agenda. Yet as documents recently made public by WikiLeaks have made clear, Egypt’s sizeable military machine remains geared to an ultimate confrontation with the Israelis.

That helps to explain why Netanyahu, not known for his conciliatory views on Israel’s Arab neighbours, now stresses the need to demonstrate “maximum responsibility, restraint and sagacity” in response to the crisis in Egypt.

As for the Obama administration, which inherited the Bush White House’s strategy of holding its nose in the face of barbaric human rights abuses under Mubarak, the omens are foreboding.

The US has been pumping $1bn a year into Egypt to shore up the institutionally corrupt regime, yet the street uprising in Egypt’s major cities has demonstrated that the most powerful and best organised political force on the scene today is the Muslim Brotherhood – implacably hostile to Israel and a covert supplier of weapons to Hamas fighters in Gaza.

Reports overnight that senior members of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas have escaped from jail in Egypt in recent days – with some members of the latter group finding their way back to Gaza through smuggling tunnels – will have caused huge concern for both Netanyahu and Obama.

And while the situation in Egypt remains “fluid” – diplomatic shorthand for no one having a clue what will happen next – no comfort will be taken in Jerusalem or Washington from the words of Eli Shaked, the wise and well-informed former Israeli ambassador to Cairo.

Writing in Israel’s best-selling tabloid /Yediot Aharonot/ the other day, he warned that if Mubarak is overthrown, a new militant Islamist regime will come to power, bringing with it a deep and abiding hostility to Israel and the West.

For good measure, he accused the US government, and by more direct implication Secretary of State Hilary Clinton whose vacillations have done nothing to defuse the crisis, of “taking the crucial developments in Egypt in a naïve fashion… expressing opinions that may be right for Western ears.”

In short, when Clinton – joined by Obama and David Cameron – calls on Mubarak to allow an “orderly transition” to democracy, it only sets alarm bills ringing in Israel. 

So true, you should never listen to the masses, they don’t know anything about the important things in life. Democracy is only good for those who ‘deserve’ and accept the leadership of the dictators who are US/Israeli friendly.

These are the words from Israel ‘the only democracy in the Middle East’ calling for support of a brutal dictator.

The Americans and the Europeans are being  pulled along by public opinion and aren’t considering their genuine  interests,” one senior Israeli official said. “Even if they are critical  of Mubarak they have to make their friends feel that they’re not alone.  Jordan and Saudi Arabia see the reactions in the West, how everyone is  abandoning Mubarak, and this will have very serious implications.”

Israel has called all their supporters especially those in the US and AIPAC to start a miss information to discredit the Egyptian people’s desire to decent life and democracy.

One is this American Jewish girl who calls herself an expert on Iran:

She is the new front for the American AIPAC. Born from Iranian Jewish parents, her blog and her twitter account is full of stories portraying her as “Iranian reporter” spreading the words of hate and distrusts against Arabs.
Here are a few of her latest twitts:

This last one made me laugh, this is her first twitt from “

I am sure we will hear more about her on a news channel who could not even locate Egypt on the map:

Israel urges world to curb criticism of Egypt’s Mubarak

Jerusalem seeks to convince its allies that it is in the West’s interest to maintain the stability of the Egyptian regime.

Israel called on the United States and a number of European countries over the weekend to curb their criticism of President Hosni Mubarak to preserve stability in the region.

Jerusalem seeks to convince its allies that it is in the West’s interest to maintain the stability of the Egyptian regime. The diplomatic measures came after statements in Western capitals implying that the United States and European Union supported Mubarak’s ouster.

Israeli officials are keeping a low profile on the events in Egypt, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu even ordering cabinet members to avoid commenting publicly on the issue.

Senior Israeli officials, however, said that on Saturday night the Foreign Ministry issued a directive to around a dozen key embassies in the United States, Canada, China, Russia and several European countries. The ambassadors were told to stress to their host countries the importance of Egypt’s stability. In a special cable, they were told to get this word out as soon as possible.

EU foreign ministers are to discuss the situation in Egypt at a special session today in Brussels, after which they are expected to issue a statement echoing those issued in recent days by U.S. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Obama called on Mubarak to take “concrete steps” toward democratic reforms and to refrain from violence against peaceful protesters, sentiments echoed in a statement Saturday night by the leaders of Britain, France and Germany.

“The Americans and the Europeans are being pulled along by public opinion and aren’t considering their genuine interests,” one senior Israeli official said. “Even if they are critical of Mubarak they have to make their friends feel that they’re not alone. Jordan and Saudi Arabia see the reactions in the West, how everyone is abandoning Mubarak, and this will have very serious implications.”

Netanyahu announced at Sunday’s weekly cabinet meeting that the security cabinet will convene Monday to discuss the situation in Egypt.

“The peace between Israel and Egypt has lasted for more than three decades and our objective is to ensure that these relations will continue to exist,” Netanyahu told his ministers. “We are closely monitoring events in Egypt and the region and are making efforts to preserve its security and stability.”

The Foreign Ministry has called on Israelis currently in Egypt to consider returning home and for those planning to visit the country to reconsider. It is telling Israelis who have decided to remain in Egypt to obey government directives.

It is actually funny to read this.

These idiots are all having nightmares right now, their whole existence is based on fake identity of being ‘leaders’ who care for ‘arab’ cause, but they are nothing but a bunch of disgusting, corrupt and despicable gang of rich people who do not tolerate any criticism from their people and have forced their people to live under one of t he worse dictatorship in the modern history.

Hopefully their days are counted. The dictators of the ME will fall one by one and then it will be time for people of Iran to get rid of the gangs ruling our country for the past 32 years.

Saudi Arabia Slammed Protesters in Egypt as “Infiltrators”

Arab governments in the region are wary of demonstrations spreading to their countries.

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia slammed protesters in Egypt as “infiltrators” who seek to destabilize their country, and a top Palestinian official affirmed “solidarity” with Egypt on Saturday, while an Iranian official called on Egypt to “abide by the rightful demands of the nation” and avoid violent reactions.

[The President of the United States Barack Obama bows to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia at the 2009 G20 summit.]The President of the United States Barack Obama bows to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia at the 2009 G20 summit.

Saudi King Abdullah called Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and “was reassured” about the situation in Egypt, the state-run Saudi Press Agency reported.

“During the call, the king said, ‘Egypt is a country of Arabism and Islam. No Arab and Muslim human being can bear that some infiltrators, in the name of freedom of expression, have infiltrated into the brotherly people of Egypt, to destabilize its security and stability and they have been exploited to spew out their hatred in destruction, intimidation, burning, looting and inciting a malicious sedition,'” the news agency said.

Saudi Arabia “strongly condemns” the protest, it said.

Mubarak assured the Saudi king “that the situation is stable” and that the protests “are merely attempts of groups who do not want stability and security for the people of Egypt, but rather they seek to achieve strange and suspicious objectives.”

Mubarak added that Egypt will “deter anyone who tries to exploit the freedom of (the) Egyptian people and will not allow anyone to lure those groups or use them to achieve suspicious and strange agendas,” the news agency said.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas called Mubarak and “affirmed his solidarity with Egypt and and his commitment to its security and stability,” according to the official Palestinian news agency, Wafa.

In the wake of protests in Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, and Yemen, analysts say other Arab governments in the region are wary of demonstrations spreading to their countries.

In Iran, meanwhile, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Egyptian authorities should respect the demonstrators.

“Iran expects Egyptian officials to listen to the voice of their Muslim people, respond to their rightful demands and refrain from exerting violence by security forces and police against an Islamic wave of awareness that has spread through the country in form of a popular movement,”the state-run Press TV quoted Mehmanparast as saying.

The reactions did not come as a surprise. Iran’s Shiite government has long been at odds with mostly Sunni Saudi Arabia for dominance in the region.

In Israel, where the Sabbath lasts through Saturday evening, there was no comment from top officials.

Some staff members at the Israel Embassy in Cairo plan to stay in Egypt, but some of their relatives and other Israeli citizens have flown back to Israel, an Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

On the streets of Abu Dhabi, CNN spoke with people to gauge their views of the Egyptian demonstrations.

“It’s great that everyone is coming together,” said Ayat el-Dwary, an Egyptian. “These are not just one group of people or one faction… It’s a revolution, absolutely.”

“Tunis opened the door,” el-Dwary said, in a reference to protests in Tunisia that ultimately overthrew a government. “But it was bound to happen — it was inevitable. Change is coming to Egypt.”

Samar Barakeh, who is Lebanese, said, “It’s time for them to change their government and they have the right to say whatever they want.”

Fellow Lebanese Antoinet Ghanem said, “It’s about the whole regime structuring themselves to create more opportunities for these people to realize their ambitions and dreams… It’s about the people trying to express what they need.”
