The Muslim Brotherhood has announced its support for El Baradei as the leader of Egyptian opposition. After many years as head of the IAEA, El Baradei is privy to many nuclear secrets, acquainted with scores of nuclear scientists, and can provide the Muslim Brotherhood with a shortcut to nuclear capability.

After scores of Latin American countries recognized Palestinian statehood, Cyprus became the first EU country to follow suit. So far, the recognition has come only in the form of a presidential letter.

The recognition itself is insignificant, and may actually benefit Israel because border negotiations between two states can drag on forever. There is a small chance of an explosive development: as more countries begin to recognize Palestine in its pre-1967 borders, Israel may be pressured to abandon most of Jerusalem and all of the West Bank.

Oddly, Cyprus is on very good terms with Israel. The island state routinely helps us to intercept or sabotage pro-Gazan flotillas, and it allowed IAF to train against its S-300 SAM battery. Considering Cyprus’ bad relations with Turkey, we would not expect a pro-Palestinian stance there. Perhaps due to their sour relations with Turkey, Cyprus feels the need to maintain good relations with other Muslims nations.

The Egyptian army has beefed up its presence in Cairo: tanks block the streets and soldiers have arrested scores of looters.

The army took firm control of Rafah and cracked down on Hamas.

Hundreds of inmates were allegedly killed in jails to prevent their escape.

The only threat to Mubarak’s regime comes now from the army itself, but so far it remains loyal to the president.

Curiously, just a week ago the chief of Israeli Military Intelligence called the Egyptian regime ‘very stable.’

The Sudanese people held a referendum and overwhelmingly approved the country’s dissolution. This ends the conflict, which the Jewish state has become a part of.
Most African infiltrators claimed they came from Sudan or Eritrea seeking asylum. Now they must be deported back to their desert and jungles.

At Hadera desalination plantA Populist government deals with the most pressing problems at the expense of long-term interests. Thus, it has approved running desalination plants all day long. The plants were designed to run only at night, when electricity tariffs are lower and the power supply excessive.

Desalinated water produced at peak-hour tariffs will be extremely expensive, but the government hides the problem by averaging the price. Our Arab enemies will also receive subsidized water.
