    Not really, let me explain what I mean. I would be stunned if they declared the peace accord null and void, and severed relations. I do not think that will happen absent some truly radical series of events. However the Israeli-Egyptian Peace Treaty has many more stipulations than just declaring peace. For example it places limitations on Egypt's ability to build bases in the Sinai or unilaterally deploy troops or types of equipment. I could see a scenario where to curry votes and exert sovereignty (not to mention evolving security situations) by abrogating those portions of the treaty, or bending it.

    Well they have for intents and purposes already closed the Israeli embassy in Cairo. They now have troops and for a while had tanks in the Sinai. They have an ex? member of the Muslim Brotherhood who just fired the top generals. Their country is an economic mess. Who better to blame than Israel. Not that something will happen next week, but especially if Obama is reelected, the next four years will be a prefect time for Egypt to become much more hostile to Israel.
