Binocular Snapshot for 2/06/2011

LastDayWatchers you will see the weakening to the positions of Israel just as the May 15th Prophecy have declared

Muslim Brotherhood to begin talks with VP

"Most influential opposition group decides to engage in round of dialogue to discuss process of Mubarak leaving office, right to protest in public places

"We have decided to engage in a round of dialogue to ascertain the seriousness of officials towards the demands of the people and their willingness to respond to them"

The Brotherhood said it has the right to abandon the talks if they are going nowhere. The talks will focus on the future of the state and the transitional government"

"Protesters say their achievements in recent days have made it impossible for them to give up until President Mubarak quits power"

The developments come as the government has entered talks with opposition groups to discuss political reforms.

Egypt's opposition party, the Muslim Brotherhood, has agreed to join talks with the government of President Mubarak but says that the meeting is “in no way in the form of negotiations, it is rather statement of our demands.”

Senior party officials said they would enter talks with Vice-President Omar Suleiman, but will drop out if the demands made by the protesters during the last two weeks are not met"

US noncommittal on Muslim group joining talks

"U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday the Obama administration supports the transition to a new government now moving forward in Egypt, but she says it must be up to the Egyptian people to decide if the reforms go far enough.

With mass protests now in their 13th day, Clinton said the U.S. is encouraging talks between opposition leaders and Vice President Omar Suleiman aimed at ending the country's political crisis.

But she withheld judgment on the decision by the Muslim Brotherhood to enter into discussions with the embattled government. 

The fundamentalist group said it would insist that President Hosni Mubarak, an authoritarian leader who's been in power for nearly three decades, step aside immediately."

The May 15th Prophecy told you, it wouldn't be Iran that would become "isolated", rather it would be Israel that would become "isolated" to their detriment

Iran wins, Israel loses in turmoil

"Tehran estimates that the Middle Eastern region has reached a historic crossroads and the pent-up popular anger against the autocratic regimes has finally erupted. It reaches out to establish an overarching Islamic affinity with the popular movements but would be cautious not to be seen exhorting the Arab people to revolt. Tehran will use the emergent opportunity to make bridges with its Arab neighbors and to break out of the regional isolation imposed by the US.

The overall regional situation is moving in a direction favorable to Iran. A Tehran-sponsored government has begun working in Baghdad and a Hezbollah-dominated government is assuming power in Beirut. The al-Jazeera leaks regarding secret deals between the head of Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas and US and Israel boosts Hamas' status as the voice of resistance. Iran's ties with Syria remain strong and the harmony with Turkey is unprecedented.

On the other hand, the disarray within the Palestinian camp and the fluidity in Cairo become major obstacles for Washington to resume any peace process in the conceivable future, which means the Barack Obama administration's dismal record in the Middle East remains in full display, adding to its discomfiture on the Arab street.

It also works in Tehran's favor that the Obama administration has its hands full coping with the cataclysmic changes sweeping the region. The Iran nuclear issue gets relegated to the backburner by Washington's new priorities. Washington is going to be bogged down with the making of the "New Middle East".

Meanwhile, the entire US strategy to isolate Iran in its region by erecting a phalanx of "pro-West" Arab regimes plus Israel is withering away and Iran's influence as a regional power may touch a qualitatively new level.

Israel's Middle Eastern blues

The extreme nervousness in Tel Aviv stands out in contrast with the jubilation in Tehran

Israel didn't anticipate the uprising. On Tuesday, although protests had erupted in Cairo, Israel's new chief of military intelligence, Aviv Kochavi, told the Knesset (parliament) committee on foreign affairs and defense that Mubarak's government was not under threat and the Muslim Brotherhood wasn't organized well enough to threaten the regime.

What is the worst-case scenario for Israel? Israeli fears appear on several templates. Without doubt, the strategic challenge is that Israel may face acute regional isolation"

The US will be preoccupied with salvaging its own regional influence. Washington may take its eyes off Iran for a while to single-mindedly deal with the West's bread-and-butter issues - the Suez Canal"

Mideast turmoil makes peace imperative: Peres

"The veteran Israeli politician said that while the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was not the cause of much of the problems affecting the region, it was being manipulated by the enemies of both the Israelis and the Palestinians.

"The dramatic events of recent days raise the need to remove the Israeli- Palestinian conflict from the daily agenda as soon as possible because the conflict is being exploited to the detriment of both sides," Peres said at a conference in the seaside town of Herzliya north of Tel Aviv.

Peres spoke of the uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, the political turmoil in Lebanon, the north-south split in Sudan and Iran's nuclear programme.

"History has lost its patience, it is happening at a gallop. Either we gallop with it or it will leave without us. There are those who say we need to wait for the storm to subside, no one knows when it will end"

Talks between Israel and the Palestinians, relaunched on September 2 after a long hiatus, fell apart weeks afterwards after Israel refused to renew a temporary ban on building settlements in the West Bank"

Why the Palestinian Authority Is Worried About Egypt

"The Palestinian Authority, due to the events in Tunisia and Egypt and their likely extension, is going to be negatively affected,

being to some extent discredited because of its alliance with the Israeli regime, and because it belongs to the same camp as these so-called 'moderate regimes."

"The Palestinian authorities are just now analyzing what's going on in Egypt and Tunisia and how they can mitigate the situation here"

Mideast unrest complicates terror fight

"Uncertainty about whether the U.S. can depend on Arab allies to join against militants comes amid growing American concerns following a string of failed attacks plotted in Yemen and al-Qaida's home base inside Pakistan. Less reliance on Mideast partners could force the U.S. to strike back on its own there, if a future terrorist attack were to succeed.

U.S. counterterrorism officials worry that continuing demonstrations in the Yemeni capital in Sana'a could led the country's security forces to focus more on protecting the government, giving breathing room to al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, suspected in plots against the U.S. in recent months"
