Edging Towards Rubicon
If the Muslim Brotherhood gains any part of governance of Egypt, the Sunni Salafists will ultimately control that entire nation. Maybe not immediately, there may be a few secularists who retain some authority, but soon after day one, the Brotherhood will usher them out. Any notions incompatible with the emergence of the "Caliphate" will not long be tolerated, including, of course, sustaining peace with the Zionist Entity. Not to mention the pressure that would be exerted on American allies Jordan and Saudi Arabia by having the most populous and militarily powerful Arab state fall into the hands of Islamists. Once the nose of the camel of Sunni fundamentalism nudges into the tent, America's regional allies fall like dominoes.
