Two quick items of interest.
First, the U.S. is officially advising Americans not to go to Egypt. Seems sensible to me, albeit potentially over cautious.
Second, one rational concern is that this will result in a new government that will look more like Iran than Iraq. So this account of Israelis visiting Egypt is hopeful on that front:
“The attitude towards us as Israelis and tourist is very friendly. Actually, they’re overly nice compared to my previous visits in Egypt. The Egyptians want to explain themselves, to tell everyone about their struggle. They speak Arabic over here so it’s easy to communicate with them. On Friday we went right past the demonstrations on our way back from the pyramids, and people helped us get though the crowd.”
Read the whole thing. Of course that is highly anecdotal. But let’s hope that it is typical nonetheless.
