Last Sunday, as the media were reporting that the Muslim Brotherhood was sitting down with Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman, the BBC reported in an unrelated story that British Prime Minister David Cameron had announced that “state multiculturalism has failed”:“David Cameron has criticized ‘state multiculturalism’ in his first speech as prime minister on radicalization and the causes of terrorism.“At a security conference in Munich, he argued the U.K. needed a stronger national identity to prevent people turning to all kinds of extremism. He also signaled a tougher stance on groups promoting Islamist extremism. … As Mr. Cameron outlined his vision, he suggested there would be greater scrutiny of some Muslim groups which get public money but do little to tackle extremism.” ‘Ministers should refuse to share platforms or engage with such groups, which should be denied access to public funds and barred from spreading their message in universities and prisons,’ he argued. ‘Frankly, we need a lot less of the passive tolerance of recent years and much more active, muscular liberalism,’ the prime minister said.”Excerpt Read more at washingtontimes.com …

Mubarak, it appears, is not going to go quietly, or quickly.He is not going to play the role assigned him in the White House script that has him resigning and fleeing Egypt in the face of mass demonstrations in Tahrir Square.After U.S. diplomat Frank Wisner came to give Mubarak his marching orders, the Egyptian apparently decided that, if the Americans, whose water he has carried for years, are going to abandon him, he will play out this hand himself. And the old fighter pilot is not without cards to play.While the army has said it will not fire on the demonstrators, the army also seems to want an end to the demonstrations — and appears reluctant to dump over a president who has been a friend and patron for decades.And now that Mubarak has pledged on national television that he will not run again, and elections will be held in September, the cause that united the crowd — Mubarak must go! — appears victorious. Indeed, some demonstrators took Mubarak’s announced departure as victory and went home. Why start an insurrection to deny the man his last six months?Wednesday, Mubarak played another card — his own “people power.”

Barack Obama, like his predecessors, has supported Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to the tune of $1.3 billion annually, mostly in military aid. In return, Egypt minds U.S. interests in the Middle East, notably providing a buffer between Israel and the rest of the Arab world. Egypt collaborates with Israel to isolate Gaza with a punishing blockade, to the consternation of Arabs throughout the Middle East. The United States could not have fought its wars in Iraq without Egypt’s logistical support.
Now with a revolution against Mubarak by two million Egyptians, all bets are off about who will replace him and whether the successor government will be friendly to the United States.
