Earlier today Mike Huckabee, who is currently in Israel, we reported that he believes the current state of unrest in Egypt has the potential to threaten peace the world over. Here's an article from the The Jerusalem Post that explains why he's right.
Mohammed El Baradei, the man who hopes to succeed Egyptian Mubarak, previously used his position as head of the IAEA to help Iran cover up its nuclear weapons program. His actions "won him the support of the Iranian regime."
El Baradei is also a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization sworn to the destruction of Israel.
If El Baradei takes over power in Egypt, the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel is doomed and the Israelis will once again be surrounded by Islamic fundamentalists who seek to eliminate them from the face of the Earth.
At the very least, Egypt will become an Islamist regime and a major base for Hamas, al-Qaida, and spread of global jihad. At worst, all out war in the Middle East - which can easily spill over to involve nations around the world - would become much, much more likely.
"Elbaradei’s support for the Iranian ayatollahs is matched by his support for the Muslim Brotherhood. This group, which forms the largest and best-organized opposition movement to the Mubarak regime, is the progenitor of Hamas and al-Qaida. It seeks Egypt’s transformation into an Islamic regime that will stand at the forefront of the global jihad."
