It would seem that the USA and Israel decided some time ago to topple Egypt's president Mubarak.
"The U.S. strategy for three decades ... has been to bet on Mubarak... But that cannot possibly be a smart bet for the next decade." - Elliott Abrams on 20 January 2011 (interview)
Abrams, a neo-con Zionist, was involved in Iran-Contra.
According to PressTV (Mossad behind Egypt church blast):
"Political experts believe that the US, the Israeli regime and Britain have crafted a long-term joint security program in the Middle East and North Africa...
"Part of the scenario is to divide Sudan into northern and southern parts, split Egypt into a Christian-populated country and a Muslim-populated one and trigger a new civil strife in Lebanon among Shias and Sunnis...
"The establishment of a non-Arab Christian government in the heart of Islamic Sudan will result in the Israeli regime infiltrating into the east bank of the river Nile, only to be a pain in the neck for Muslim nations in North Africa.
"After south Sudan is separated from the north, the Israeli regime will, thanks to its physical presence on the ground, take control of the water flow in the river and hold the 11 countries on both sides of the Nile to political ransom.
"Leaders in south of the African country had already announced they would establish broad political relations with Tel Aviv once they break away from the north.
"Another scenario on the West's agenda is to lay the groundwork for the formation of a Coptic government in Upper Nile in Egypt...
"Therefore, the recent scuffles between Muslims and Christians in Naj' Hammadi region in Qena governorate in southern Egypt as well as the blast at the Alexandria church are a prelude for the dangerous Western-engineered scenario to unfold in one of the key Islamic-Arab nations."
ARE THE SPOOKS DESTABILISING EGYPT, IN PREPARATION FOR A COUP?
Netanyau meets Omar Suleiman, head of Egyptian Inteligence on 4 November 2010 in Tel Aviv.
According to the powerful US Council on Foreign Relations (Egypt - Council on Foreign Relations):
"The Suez Canal remains critical to the security of the Persian Gulf and its vast energy reserves, as well as to global trade.
"Egypt also maintains the region's largest and most powerful Arab military."
It seems that Obama would like to topple Egypt's President Mubarak, and replace him with someone more reliable.
The Pentagon wants the Egyptian military to help advance the US-Israeli agenda.
But the Egyptian military sees Israel as the enemy.
And Egypt has resisted sending troops to Iraq and Afghanistan. (US frustrated with Egypt military)
Israel would like to topple Mubarak, it seems.
Israel and Egypt have many ties.
13% of the Israeli army's civilian workforce are Egyptians. (Egypt and Israel, a souring relationship?)
Early in 2010, Egypt and Israel made a gas deal allowing Israel to buy the gas at prices lower than its market value.
However, more recently Egypt's Irrigation Minister dismissed the possibility that Egypt would supply Israel with water from the Nile. (Egypt and Israel, a souring relationship?)
On 20 December 2010 (ISRAEL DESTABILISING EGYPT) we learnt that Egypt arrested members of an Israeli spy ring within its borders.
Egypt claims the spies kidnapped foreign nationals.
Reportedly, the aim is to destabilize security in the Sinai.
Emad Gad, an expert at Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies, says: "Despite Israel’s peace treaty with Egypt, Egypt remains Israel's primary threat in the region.
"Israel sees Egypt as its main obstacle to regional dominance."
George Galloway, alleged disinformation agent, has been attacking Mubarak.
On 1 January 2011, we read that a group calling itself Al-Qaeda may be responsible for the seven dead and 24 injured in an attack on a church in Egypt
It is worth noting that OBAMA'S FRIENDS TARGET CHRISTIANS
Israel attacked Egypt in 1967.
Israel claimed that it attacked because Nasser had placed troops in part of Egypt called the Sinai.
The CIA's assessment was that Egypt's military presence in the Sinai was defensive. (Israel's attack on Egypt in June '67 was not 'preemptive' FPJ)

Who might replace Mubarak?
Some unknown military figure could emerge.
Or spy chief Omar Suleiman could take power in some kind of coup.
Suleiman was trained at the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare School and Center at Fort Bragg, in the 1980s. (Egypt's Next Strongman Foreign Policy)
Suleiman continues to have close contacts with US intelligence and military officials.
On Facebook, Twitter, and blogs, Suleiman is receiving support. (Egypt's Next Strongman Foreign Policy)
