Israel’s Defense Minister Ehud Barak said:
Israel will not tolerate continuing terrorist attacks from the Sinai Peninsula.…Now that the [Egyptian] election is over and a victor has been declared,…"We will not accept our citizens’ way of life being harmed and we will not tolerate citizens getting hit from Sinai and terror...."We have an obligation to our citizens in the Gaza periphery, who are showing determination and strength...“[Israel] respects the democratic process in Egypt [but we have] expectations that Cairo would honor the 1979 peace treaty with Israel…"The IDF will continue to take action against terrorists, We will not accept rocket fire on the South.”
God says: “I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian--brother will fight against brother, neighbor against neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom. The Egyptians will lose heart, and I will bring their plans to nothing; they will consult the idols and the spirits of the dead, the mediums and the spiritists.  Iwill hand the Egyptians over to the power of a cruel master and a fierce king will rule over them,” declares the Lord, the Yahweh Almighty. … “So Yahweh  will make himself known to the Egyptians, and in that day they will acknowledge Yahweh.” (Isaiah 19:2-4, 21)
The Jerusalem Connection says: With the Muslim Brotherhood in charge in Egypt it does not bode well for the region – including Egypt and Israel, at least for the immediate future. Long term the view is more encouraging. Isaiah 19 concludes, "in that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria.The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. The Lord Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.” So what can we conclude? It’s going to get a lot worse for the region, including Israel, before it get’s better. But when that which is “better” comes, it will be the best because Yahweh will be in charge.
