Let’s hop in the time machine and travel back to oh, say, last Monday. Here’s the call:
A leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt told the Arabic-language Iranian news network Al-Alam on Monday that he would like to see the Egyptian people prepare for war against Israel, according to the Hebrew-language business newspaper Calcalist.
Muhammad Ghannem reportedly told Al- Alam that the Suez Canal should be closed immediately, and that the flow of gas from Egypt to Israel should cease “in order to bring about the downfall of the Mubarak regime.”
Now, fast forward back to today and here’s the response:
Egypt temporarily suspended its natural gas supply to Israel as a security precaution after an explosion at a terminal in the northern Sinai Peninsula, Israel radio said Saturday.
Egypt Pipeline Explosion Cuts Gas Supply To Israel

So, are we taking this Islamist threat seriously yet?
/will Jordon be the next domino to circle the drain and fall?
