Egypt's Campaign against Iran

In the last week, Egypt has moved against Iran and its allies in the Arab world. Cairo arrested a Hizballah cell that was preparing terrorist operations on Egyptian soil, organized a campaign against Hamas weapons and money smugglers in the Sinai Peninsula, and stepped up efforts to displace Qatar -- an Iranian sympathizer -- as a mediator on Sudan, Lebanon, and other inter-Arab issues.

It remains to be seen whether this policy shift will become a sustained part of a grand strategy to restore Egypt's leadership among Arab states or, instead, a more-defensive approach designed to parry previous humiliations from Iran's allies.

It is apparent, however, that Cairo is sending a signal to Great Satan that the "nuclear file" is not the only -- or even the most urgent -- aspect of the Iranian threat

Washington Institute has the lo down and it is prett interesting!

High time the Arab world starts to push back against Persia and it's terrorist sycophants. Now, for how long and with what staying power, is the question.
