Taking about America, I doubt if anybody is sure about the future of America with its policies, so I don't think they will have as much weight on the middle east as before....
I believe you can be wrong, their worst nightmare is a DEMOCRATICALLY elected religious movements!
Their reaction to the israeli prepared reports shows their true colors...You remember the investigations being carried out to report flotilla raid ...
well, This is what America could come up with, completly ignoring what Turks and UN was saying..
U.S. State Department spokesman Philip J. Crowley said on Monday that Washington had been "supportive of this effort by Israel, and there has been a – we think that this is an independent report, credible and impartial and transparent investigation that has been undertaken by Israel."

It's Americas fault..It's them that support single party authoritarianism! Aren't Americans meant to be the monuments of democracy?
Not to mention that more than likely the US will stop sending funds every year.
I hope they stop sending funds immediatly...That's no 1 reason behind all immoral corruption, in egypts case..
Not that the money helped Egypt in the past as it went straight into the pockets of the corrupt government.
To put it correctly, into the pockets of army of privileged guardians whose job is to protect and stay behind the system..
America's fault? Berrin, you jest?? Please tell me you jest!!! America gives Egypt money to serve it's own interests in the Middle East, Israel in this case, but does not get involved in the politics. Egypt tries to give the perception of a fair government, although tt's no secret to anyone that the government is one of the most corrupt. If the corrupt government did not fund itself with the US dollar, it would impact the people more than ever, or go elsewhere.
As Mahmoud said: it is the youth that are going to fight the fight. When your country is suffering, when you are suffering, it gives people plenty of time to talk and think, and rally.
Hey Madam, How can you give huge somes of your tax payers money and not get involved in their local politics..

Egypt's peace treaty with Israel moved Cairo to "a state of isolation" experts noted in reference to an Arab boycott of Egypt after the Camp David accords.
"Egypt's regional influence will remain tied to what happens on the Palestinian-Israeli front, where the two-state solution - the basis of policy since Camp David, is near the end of the road," Shibley Telhami, a renowned professor at the University of Maryland, wrote in a recent article.
"What happens on that front will inevitably be central to the triangular Egyptian-Israeli-American relationship that resulted from the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty 30 years ago," he added.
Can't you see that Americans and Israelies purchased the souls of Egyptions in return for aid!..
