Egypt's anti-Israel turn 

The current military-led Egyptian government is already shifting to a more anti-Israel posture, announcing today that it would permenantly reopen its border with Gaza. The move puts Israeli civilians at greater risk by undermining the blockade on Gaza and making it significantly easier for the terrorist group Hamas to import weapons.

During the Egyptian uprising, there was a big debate on the right about what a new government would mean.
