Bye Bye Mubarak

As the world breathes a collective sigh of relief as Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak steps down from office, the citizens of Egypt rejoice in the streets over their new-found freedom.  Once the celebrations end, then what?  What will the next administration bring?  Freedom? Oppression? Sharia? 

One thing I've learned in life is "Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it, ... and more."

Amid all of the changes in the region, Israel is still the "90 lb gorilla in the room."  Anything that happens will impact the Jewish nation in some form or another.  Could the success of the uprising in Egypt embolden people in other Mid-East nations to rise up against their own governments?  The whole region could end up with governments similar to that of Iran, or worse - and that would be a disaster for Israel.

Stay tuned!
