Egypt no longer an ally, if they ever really were

Caroline Glick writes about the dark reality taking shape under Egypt's election:
With vote tallies in for Egypt's first round of parliamentary elections in it is abundantly clear that Egypt is on the fast track to becoming a totalitarian Islamic state. The first round of voting took place in Egypt's most liberal, cosmopolitan cities. And still the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafists received more than 60 percent of the vote. Run-off elections for 52 seats will by all estimates increase their representation.

And then in the months to come, Egyptian voters in the far more Islamist Nile Delta and Sinai will undoubtedly provide the forces of jihadist Islam with an even greater margin of victory.

Until the US-supported overthrow of Hosni Mubarak, Egypt served as the anchor of the US alliance system in the Arab world. The Egyptian military is US-armed, US-trained and US-financed.

The Suez Canal is among the most vital waterways in the world for the US Navy and the global economy.

Due to Mubarak's commitment to stemming the tide of jihadist forces that threatened his regime, under his rule Egypt served as a major counter-terror hub in the US-led war against international jihad.
Not so fast. Didn't he help the terrorists who hijacked the Achille Lauro? And what that article says about his sharing Israel's contempt for Yasir Arafat shouldn't be taken at face value. Though the following does sound accurate:
He [Mubarak] would tolerate – some say encourage—vicious anti-Semitism in the state-controlled media and from his own government to deflect criticism of his regime. When asked about it, he would say Egyptians need to be able to let off steam (translation: better they vent their anger on Israel than on me).
And under his rulership, Egypt experienced chilling sexual assaults. Why should we consider him a true ally, if anything? If he couldn't or wouldn't try to reform the country he was in charge of, he didn't accomplish anything.

And that's why in the long term, "peace" with Egypt can only be considered a failure - because those in charge made no genuine attempt to improve the cultural mindset or change it away from the Religion of Peace to better ideals.
