Egypt: Rebellion to Where?
That effigy of Mubarak hanging from a traffic light in Tahrir Square, by the way, bears a Star of David. Egypt's peace treaty with Israel has allowed stability and growth; anything that threatens it brings plenty to fear, not only for Israel but for the hopes and dreams of the teacher and bus driver in Tahrir Square. As George Gilder wrote in his book The Israel Test, nations who resent and envy Israel flail while those who emulate its economic industry succeed.
We spectators watch the action in Egypt nervously. But observant Jews remember every day God's role in Egyptian history, and so perhaps there's more going on than we can readily observe.
