    The murder of a university student by suspected militants as his girlfriend looked on is fueling fears in Egypt that vigilante groups seeking to enforce a strict interpretation of Islamís teachings may be feeling confident with an Islamist president in office to take over the streets.
    yes i would think its possible and was expecting it. Even the settling of scores.

    The media will be playing this up whenever it occurs. How the Copts are concerned etc.

    Depends on the scale. If its isolated incidents then its a law & order issue. A new balance will have to be found as the power equation is slightly changed.

    Discussed this earlier and Rocco mentioned there were two components to the camp david accords.

    The first which is what you're referring to requires Israel's agreement to change, Egypt can't just rescind it on their own. The alarmist articles i've seen neglect to mention this point.

    The second component which deals with Palestine has not had much progress.

    Egypt could try to push for more with that.

    There is nothing simple in that question To translate you, they mean we won't obey what we think is bad for us, and will keep all the benefits that are good for us like Sinai, US aid, etc.

    If it ever happens, it will be up to Israel to:
    a) bring the issue to the court, and if they win hoping for a force majeur to implement it, or
    b) use military options to take it back

    What Mihais said is still valid.

    From Egypt? With a civil war raging? Hardly.


    How is Egyptian elections gonna spark this?


    Same as above.


    When was Iran a culmination.
    That is why we have analysts, not the fortune tellers :) Events are linked,my good Doktor.

    Most likely the civil war in Egypt,
    closing down the Suez straight,
    While civil war raging? Whichever side is gonna do that that is signing their own defeat.

    oil prices going up,
    It might go up temporarily, but the demand will go down very fast.

    European economy crumbling,
    You mean more?

    attacks on Israel,
    From Egypt? With a civil war raging? Hardly.

    Siriya vs Nato
    How is Egyptian elections gonna spark this?

    and Balkans re igniting again.
    Same as above.

    Culmination will be, as usual, the Iran.
    When was Iran a culmination.

    I would guess that it will start within next 6 months, but I am not in the field so I don't know for sure.
