The meeting this past Monday at the White House between President Trump and Egypt's President, Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi may have signaled a new realignment of the Middle East. We may now contemplate a vital military coalition consisting of Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and....Israel. Who'd have ever thought of that just a couple of years ago? This new possible partnership would be a direct result of Obama's incredible push for his Iranian nuclear deal that encouraged that terrorist nation to scare the you-know-what out of all the nations in the region. They now realize that for their own benefit and protection they have to join in an alliance with the Jewish state in order to survive. Iran is moving into their territory very quickly and they have to be stopped. Without the aid of Israel they are doomed. Reality may have set in.
Let's look at how Iranian forces are now entrenched in Syria. They will soon be in a position to walk right into Jordan once they have conquered Syria. Jordan has minimal military might to oppose them. It was no secret that Israel has protected Jordan against Syria for years. Iran's Houthi allies in Yemen have practically taken over that primitive but strategically significant country in recent years. Saudi attempts to intervene have resulted in failure. Yemen borders Saudi Arabia on the south and controls the vital southern entrance to the Red Sea. The Saudis haven't ever fought a battle on their own and would quickly crumble were they attacked by the forces of Iran and its terrorist allies. The loss of Yemen and as a result Arabia as well, could sway the balance of power in the Middle East and were Iran to rule that area they could cut off the current Saudi flow of oil to Europe and much of the world. Terrifying truth. Actually this should be a wake up call to the Arab nations in the region and to the rest of the world as well.
The only nations in the area capable of defeating Iran's invasion of the Middle East and defending their surrounding neighbors are Egypt and Israel. And they must combine forces to do so. Under the rule of its president, Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi, Egypt has already undergone a transformation away from radical Islam. It now realizes that Israel can be a very vital and reliable partner against the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) which has partnered with Hamas and ISIS in the Sinai to threaten Egypt whose military fears to enter that region handed back to them by Israel in 1979. Iran has seized the opportunity to support these groups to destabilize both Israel and Egypt to create another Iranian power base in a Sunni dominated area and to further its goal of regional dominance.
President Obama, having sided with former Egyptian President and Muslim Brotherhood chief, Muhammed Morsi, gave impetus to Iran and its foot-soldiers to grab a foothold in that region. They have become viral, operating throughout the region. That's why the reaching out to al-Sissi by President Trump is such a momentous move. It signals to Iran that we are ready and able to support militarily those who would stand up to that terrorist nation, with force. Obama's obvious cold shouldering and disdain for both Israel and the new regime in Egypt sent a heads-up to the world that Iran's plans for supremacy in this vital region had his support. But with President Trump at the helm of the free world, this is no longer the case. The critical area of the Middle East will now see the union of forces once hostile to one another join together to stem the spread of the Iranian product of Radical Islam. May G-d give them the strength to defeat this evil.
